Resolution Revolution: Top 5 Ways to Kick-Start Success in 2015
I’ve made it no secret that I am not a fan of New Year’s resolutions. Though I certainly appreciate the notion, overall waiting till New Year’s to make vital life changes can be detrimental to the flow of personal development. That being said, with the end of this year quickly approaching why not focus on self-improvement?! Without further ado, I present my top 5 ways to kick-start your success in 2015.
5. Clean Up!
Cool your jets, people! No one is suggesting that your house needs to be spotless simply because we’re approaching a new year. However, I can’t think of a better time to throw away old papers/documents and get rid of dated or too small clothing, toys your children have outgrown, etc. There are donation centers across the globe just pining for your old things and many will even come to you! This is a perfect opportunity to help yourself as well as many others. Cleaning up your clutter can have profound effects on your general well-being as well as your productivity.
4. Cut Old Ties…
No, this isn’t some sort of weird DIY arts and crafts project. Rather, my suggestion is that you sever all relationships that no longer suit you. We all have at least one (some of us, quite a few) person in our lives that don’t deserve to be there. Stop wasting time! No matter the reason, if you feel someone doesn’t deserve your time, stop giving it to them! You’ll be surprised at how much your life can improve once you stop wasting energy on superficial interactions…
Ok, this may be a no-brainer, but the best way to learn new habits is to read! Seriously, everything you’ve dreamed of doing has likely already been written about in detail. Most people never achieve their goals because they don’t know where to start. It’s a very good idea to begin by reading about those who accomplished their goals.
2. Reevaluate/Write Down Your Goals
The best way to stay focused on a goal is to write about it in detail. Create a “‘goal journal,” write down all your short and long-term goals, and regularly update!
1. Just Do It!
Now that you have all of your ducks in a row get to work! Preparation is important, but the most prepared person in the world will still get nothing done if she or he doesn’t put their plan into action. Create a goal and make it happen!
Overall, making changes in your life can be scary. Follow these steps and you’ll be that much closer to achieving things you may have already decided are impossible. Indeed, once you begin taking chances you’ll realize that impossible…is impossible.
