New Year New Me. It's such simple saying, and we expect it to be just that. But research suggests that only 8% of people stick to, and achieve their New Year's goal.
So why, even with the best intentions, do most of us fail?
What did you think when setting your resolution? Did you think much about it, and for what purpose? Many people set New Year's resolutions without thinking too much about it. They stick with the common answers, eat healthier, exercise more, quit drinking, go vegan. But how many people set them with clarity?
Clarity; a simple and often overlooked word, is such an essential part of motivation and inspiration in life. To know who you are, where you are going and how you will get there allows you to take control of your life and live intentionally.
Touching base every day with essential powerful questions, can keep you connected with your mindset, heartspace, and begin to cultivate your own purpose and habits that are most important to you.
"Get clear on what matters by getting rid of everything that doesn't"
Clarity begins with asking yourself clear, powerful questions, and thinking honestly and clearly about the answer. Vague questions and vague answers lead to vague results.
Once the answers are clear, you will gain a better understanding of yourself, what you're about, why, how. Only this creates lasting results when creating goals to self-improvement as it comes from your true-est self.
To get yourself closer to achieving your goals. Here are 5 questions to get you started. You can think as long as you want about the answer but be true to your real self.
1. What or who is the most important thing to me
2. Why is this/are they the most important thing to me
3. What would I do if I had 1 year left
4. What do I pride myself on
5. What can I do better
When you have a better understanding of yourself, can you begin to know what to change. The next question is how to change it. More to come.
