You owe it to yourself to see things through. Many people are committed to keeping their word when they promise something to someone else, but they don’t do themselves the same favor. It is time to focus on fulfilling your own needs so you can reach the goals that mean the most to you.
As a New Year approaches, it is the perfect opportunity to reward yourself by realizing results. By giving yourself the go-ahead to stick to your plans, success is something you are sure to soon see. Right now, tell yourself that you are important, impressive, and worthwhile. Promise that you will stay on track, stick to the script (or change it up if it suits you), and look forward to a positive outcome you always knew you could achieve. A few pats on the back can’t hurt either!
Make Time For Yourself
Carve out a bit of time every day to work towards your goals. Whether it is only 20 minutes per day or a couple of hours you can spare, every moment you spend working gets you closer to the outcome you’re aiming for. Just like you would never bail if you’d committed to helping a friend or family member, keep your “appointment” with yourself and spring into action without a second thought. Your devotion and dedication will drive you towards the steps it takes to get to the goal post.
Move On, Don’t Look Back
Mistakes can make us want to give up. Promise you will not let these less-than perfect incidences discourage you from keeping at it. Nothing is a “failure” if you use what you have learned to do things better the next time around. Remind yourself that you are human and you won’t always win. Things don’t always work out, and that’s just the way it goes. But if you hold tight and hang on, the next step you take is sure to be more like what you’ve had in mind. Commit to concentrating on what you are doing and what comes next. Dwelling on the “don’ts” is sure to bring you down. Lift your own spirits by showing yourself how you can get over the bumps and on to better things. Congratulate yourself when you’ve done a good job to keep you motivated for more of the same.
Positive results come from self-awareness and inner strength. These tools will take you places.
