New Year's resolutions?
The New Year has just started, what are your resolutions, dreams, and hopes for the future?
Have you considered making a 5-year plan and doing away with the 12-month plan?
New Year's resolutions hold so much promise, and they evoke joy and hope for a better tomorrow. This places so much pressure on you and those you made promises to for the year ahead.
With a 5-year plan, your chances of failing in your quest are lessened, and it takes the edge off. This allows you to plan better, do better, rest better, and be the best version of yourself.
Silently, we all strive for perfection, even though we find it hard to verbalise or admit it.
Just like with your 12-month plan, you write your goals and a timeline for each goal you want to achieve.
Be realistic now!
Remember, give yourself enough time; you know your limits the best.
Write down why and how you want to achieve the result. Draw up a vision board, create your own personal Pinterest folder highlighting your plan, or do it the old-fashioned way with a pin board and pictures from a magazine.
Do your research, and remember to plan time to celebrate the victories you achieve. Small victories need to be made a fuss about; this recharges and energizes you to keep up the good work.
1. Think about changing from 1-year to 5-year resolutions.
2. Write your goals down. (Be realistic)
3. Set a timeline.
4. Make a vision board.

6. Check your progress as you progress.

8. Have balance.
9. Make time for self-care.
“You are the sum total of everything you've ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgotten—it's all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that, I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.”
Happy New Year to all!
