“We must set achievable goals that don’t consume our lives,” says Gail Kasper, internationally renowned motivational strategist and author of the life strategy audio CD program, Make a Decision to Win, and co-author along with Brian Tracy and Stephen Covey of the book, Mission Possible. Gail states, that obtaining success starts with a plan and suggests 5 simple steps to get on track, be happy, while at the same time, work toward those New Year’s Resolutions.
After all, what is happiness? Is it enjoying the sunset on a beautiful beach as the waves roll in, is it writing your bills and actually having the money to pay them, is it spending a day with your kids and the family dog, or is it achieving that New Year’s Resolution? Studies show that achieving a New Year’s Resolution can enhance your life and make you happier as long as you don’t place the weight of a happy existence on achieving the goal. Yet, on a yearly basis, the nagging pressure of setting and achieving a New Year’s Resolutions seems to overwhelm you to the point that by week three of the New Year – you’re depressed because – ughhh, another failed attempt at a New Year’s resolution. Don’t get me wrong; New Year’s Resolutions give us something to aspire to and something to work toward. They help us to be better people and more well rounded, but they do not determine your success in life. They are the means to enhance your life.
5 simple steps to get on track:
Step 1. A support system is essential. A support system will not only help you stay on track to achieving your New Year’s resolution, but can involve people that you love. Studies have shown that strong inter-connected relationships can lead to happiness.
Step 2. Have a meeting with yourself. What’s really important to you? What will help build your self-esteem, encourage your growth both personally and professionally, or help you to be a better person?
Step 3. Have a Daily Planning System. Gene Donohue once said that the difference between a goal and a dream is the written word. So get your electronic organizer, daily planner or other method of choice and write down those New Years resolutions.
Step 4. Design your value system. The happy people in this world have a “value” system. For real. They live by truth, loyalty, responsibility, and accountability. They are honest with themselves and others. In other words, they are free….and when you are free, you are in a position to move forward with life and take the next step with a goal.
Step 5. Celebrate every accomplishment. We are a negative society. We see what we haven’t accomplished, rather than the steps that we have taken. Any effort or energy you give to what you haven’t accomplished will only slow you down. Celebrate every accomplishment, keep the momentum, and look toward tomorrow.
