Making the same resolution again this New Year?
Time for a new approach...
Over half of Americans will make some sort of New Year’s resolution this year.
- Most of them will be women.
- 8% will succeed.
- Of 92% that fail, most will have made the same resolution at least three other times in their lives.
What’s going on here? Are that many of us lazy, undisciplined slugs?
Not even close.
Many of my clients came to me because they had grown frustrated - working on the same goal over and over again only to meet with fleeting or partial success.
These are all hardworking, passionate, values driven women who never seem to stop. They juggle careers with the needs of kids, elderly parents, and relationships while managing households, worrying about money and trying to squeeze in a little self care.
In fact, every one of them has set and met many, many goals in her lifetime. And yet, this one thing – this one really, really, really wanted thing never quite materialized. Many of them had begun to believe it’s wasn't possible.
If it does, take a d e e p b r e a t h, the solution is far more simple than you think.
There are hundreds of models out there for reaching goals. While they vary a bit in approach, they each can be broken down into three key steps:
- Set the goal
- Map out a plan
- Take Action
And they all work. I’m willing to bet that you’ve used these three steps yourself many times and met with success.
These three steps - in whatever way you employ them - are a tactical solution. They work great when applied to tactical goals.
And that’s the problem.
The BIG goals, the ones that we’re likely to refer to as resolutions (or even as dreams), are not tactical. They are tied in with our emotions, our values, our fears – they are attached to our deepest sense of self.
Our BIG goals require an adaptive solution.
That's why I'm offering my REACH do-it-yourself mini workshop (a $20 value) as my holiday gift to you. Use it to get started on making this year's resolution truly stick!
