3 Ways to Stick to Your New Years Resolutions


Practice. Patience. Persistence. The 3 words that will help you stick to your New Years Resolutions. It is natural to use landmarks to evaluate your life, but allow yourself the space to ebb and flow through them with ease. Let your changes in behavior be small at first, which will enable you to do what you already do but just more effectively and successfully. Ever heard of the phrase "one step at a time"? 

Practice stimulates the mind in seeing that change and growth are inevitable. When the student is ready, the teacher appears. With practice comes humility, so if you fall down, choose to get back up. These situations continue to show up until we've learned the lesson, and once we have, something else arises. The practice is non-stop, and so are you.

A string of small successes can give you more confidence. When we embark on the practice with a patient mindset, it allows us to receive feedback with love and ease. When talking to yourself, ask...is it kind? Is it necessary? Is it true? The words and stories we flip over in our mind can either build us up or break us down. It's ok if maybe you went slightly off course as long as you come back home without judgment, expectation or dis-ease.

Persistence is the practice of never giving up. It must be accompanied with gratitude and integrity to be of worth. You must become resilient in your pursuit.

Sticking to your resolutions shouldn't just be a New Year thing, but rather any every day goal.

If you have hard work to do,
Do it now.
Today the skies are clear & blue,
Tomorrow is not for you;
Do it now.


You've got this,

    I 100 percent agree. New Years comes around and it is so easy to use the milestone to motivate a “new year, completely new me” attitude, but often that proves to be unsustainable. I love the mantra of one step at a time and the attitude of taking things one day at a time. Coming to peace with ones self, as you are right now, is harder than diving into unattainable goals. If you can love yourself using every step of the process you’ll love yourself enough to keep things going to eventually reach those goals you want to achieve. Thank you for this beautiful message, for the motivation, and for the reminder ❤️
