Making your New Year Resolutions Count

Please share!


Will this be another New Year when you wonder how it got to be the end of February and still you have not begun to go after those New Year resolutions? How many of you know what it’s like to start the New Year off with great intentions towards your health, but only find yourself in the same old habits that hold you back from looking great and feeling even better? “I am going to lose 25 pounds in the next six months,” “I am going to start eating healthier food,” “I will begin an exercise routine that will boost my energy levels up.”

Do any of these sound familiar from years past? If so, make this years resolutions count! I am one who knows from past experience it is not easy to achieve results unless willing to take a few simple steps to ensure success. These are five of my simple steps that will make all your New Years resolutions count.

5 Steps to Making Your Resolutions Count

1. First off you need to set your intentions. Take one hour to yourself and close your eyes. What comes up for you? What do you see one week from now, one month from now, one year from now? Write down all that you would like to achieve in the coming year and set your intentions towards attracting all your desired results.
2. Now that you have set your intentions it is time to begin visualizing. Each morning before you get out of bed, spend 3-5 minutes visualizing yourself already having achieved all your desired results. If it’s losing a few pounds then visualize how you would look and how it feels. If it’s more energy you’re after, imagine having abundant energy the minute you wake up. How would your day look if you were able to be on high alert morning to night? It is all possible, and visualizing your results a few minutes each day will help your resolutions become reality.
3. Once you set your intentions and begin visualizing each day, you must now begin to take action. It is in taking daily action that all your desired results become reality. The key to taking action is to make sure whatever you set out to achieve is possible. This means you must take small daily action steps towards success. For example, if I wanted to add more exercise into my life I would NOT wake up tomorrow and jog three laps around my block. Instead I would wake up and take a walk around my block once. The idea is to take small achievable actions steps each day so that you feel what its like to succeed. The more small action steps you achieve, the more success you will experience. This feeling of success will only set you up for more success and eventually full achievement of all your desired results.
4. Your intentions have been set, you are now visualizing having achieved amazing results and you are taking small daily action steps towards these results. Now its time to celebrate, celebrate, celebrate! Celebration is another key to manifesting all your life’s goals. Every day you need to celebrate as much as possible. The minute you finish visualizing in the morning, celebrate, when you have completed each daily action steps, celebrate, when you see your kids playing outside in the snow, celebrate. Take a look around you right now and see all that you have in your life worth celebrating. Even the smallest things are worth a pump fist in the air and a big yahoo. As odd as this may sound, celebration is what sets your vibration to positive and only brings you more positive results in return while making you feel amazing. I dare you to try it.
5. We are creatures of habit and for many years you have been doing the same continuous actions over and over again that have created the habits you currently have. The only way to break free of your junk habits is to disrupt the old pattern and introduce new ones. That is why it is so important to set your intentions, visualize everyday, take small daily actions steps, celebrate and finally get support. Many of our conditioned habits are tough to break. Having someone who you can share your successes with as well as talk to in times of need, is crucial to ensure you stay the course as you strive to achieve all you health goals. Support could come from a loving family member, a good friend, a personal trainer, or a success coach. No matter where your sup-port comes from, it is important to share your intentions with some-one who will provide encouragement along the way.

New Years resolutions don’t have to be just another tradition that is forgotten by the end of January and revisited come December. Follow the tools for success above and ensure that this New Year brings abundant health and lifelong prosperity.
