Happy New Year! – 4 Hacks to Stick to Your New Year Resolutions
We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year!! We are excited to start another year to help you realise your goals. If you are in year 12, it is even more exciting as you are starting the very last year that you will be in school.
We are sure you have many hopes and aspirations for the year to come and many of us make new year resolutions but unfortunately a lot of the time they are all but forgotten of in a few months time. So how do you make sure you stick to your new year resolutions or any other goals you set for yourself?
We want to share with you 4 simple hacks that make it easier for you to stick to your new year resolutions or any other goals you might have set for yourself for the coming year.
- Get someone to hold you accountable – Telling yourself you will do something is one thing but telling someone you trust that you will accomplish something and asking them to hold you to account is a totally different ball game. You want this person to be someone who will genuinely hold you to account and won’t give you a free pass if you come up with an excuse.
- Visualise the end result – You can visualise it in your mind or have a something you can look at to remind you of the end goal. Your ATAR goal is a perfect example of this. Also think of how you will feel once you accomplish your goals. The feelings of satisfaction and the joy you will have at reaching your goal can be strong motivators.
- Celebrate the small wins – The small wins are important and you need to recognise yourself for that. If you reached a smaller goal on the way to your bigger ATAR goal such as completing a set of study notes or reaching your target marks for an assignment make sure you recognise yourself for that. It’ll help refresh your motivation and build up your confidence that you can reach your ultimate goal.
- Take the positives out of setbacks – Reaching any goal can result in setbacks along the way and that is perfectly fine. What is important is how you react to them. Instead of thinking that you are a failure because of one or two setbacks anticipate that that you will face setbacks and that will learn how to avoid them in them in future.
Following through with your goals is just as important as setting them and overcoming your own inhibitions can be the hardest part of achieving those goals.
