10 Ways to Break (up with) Your Resolutions

Ever Tried. Ever Failed. No Matter. Try Again, Fail Again. Fail Better. – Samuel Beckett

We are almost to the end of the first month of 2019! Like whhhaaattt! I know right…

Soooooo have you broken up with your NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS yet?

Or are you working towards a breakup?

Starting a new year is when we also start envisioning a new start in our life, either personally or in business or both! This year I am get fit & fab… this year I am going to make a huge profit in my business….. this year I am ………

If you haven’t yet broken up with your resolutions, I thought I would give you a 10 way guide to guarantee your break up. 😊

STEP 1 – Make resolutions that are not ACHIEVABLE. If your goal is too big or not practical, you are just not going to achieve them, and you will just give up. (ie I am going get 100 clients in 2 months – and you currently have 3!)

STEP 2 – Don’t set any TIME limits on your goals. If you don’t have a date, you are not going to get there.

STEP 3 – Don’t put a PLAN into place to achieve your resolution. Just bumble along, try a few things here and there and hope it all works out.

STEP 4 – Put a plan into place but don’t ACTION your plan. That plan looks awesome on my wall….

STEP 5 – No ACCOUNTABILITY. Whatever you do…. DON’T make yourself accountable or find someone to hold you to account. For goodness sake you might actually stick to your resolution if you do this one….

STEP 6 – Make absolutely no attempt to review your HABITS and adjust them to keep in line with your resolutions. Apparently, it takes 21 days to form a habit, I write this on the 22 January, this step might be too late for you……sorry

STEP 7 – Don’t have any way to track or MEASURE your progress. I mean who wants to know how you are going towards reaching your resolution, you’re are only going to break up with it anyway.

STEP 8 – Don’t have a REASON for your resolutions. If you have a defined and clear reason why you have created this resolution and why it needs to happen, then you might actually see it through! I mean who wants to live to see your grandchildren grow up right…

STEP 9 – Whatever you do, DON’T put your resolutions consistently in FRONT OF MIND. You know like on the fridge, on your mirror, on your screen savers. Geez you might actually keep thinking about what you want to achieve and why.

STEP 10 – Honestly just give up already! That DETERMINATION and FOCUS is not going to get you anywhere with your break-up… Seriously…..

I would love to hear what steps you have taken to break up with your resolutions. What were your 2019 resolutions and where are you at with them?

Now seriously if you REALLY do want to make a CHANGE in 2019 and do something differently this year, PLAN FOR SUCCESS!
