The Number 1 Reason Why You’re Always Failing to Fulfill your New Years Resolution. Here’s How to Unstick It!
Whenever the New Year comes, we are often filled with new hope and enthusiasm. This is where we usually list down our new goals and priorities as we look forward to another productive and Prosperous New Years. Everything would’ve seemed so perfect, right? If not for this horrible reality: oftentimes we’re unable to fulfill our New Year’s resolution!
The Horrendous Cycle of New Year’s Resolution
We know, we know. We know how horrible it is. That moment where you’re fully motivated to make a change in the first quarter of the year. Then halfway through the year your schedule got hectic, making it impossible for you to adopt the changes you’ve made continuously. Until you’re no longer motivated to do anything and you just let life get the better of you.
Then when the last quarter comes, we usually reflect on our deeds for the whole year. This is the time where we will cringe because we’re unable to fulfill the goals we’ve set. But then we became hopeful because, there’s another year coming, right? We’ll start accomplishing those goals next year again. And we’ve trapped ourselves in another endless cycle once again!
How do we make sure that this time, we’re going to actually accomplish our goals and not prolong the agony of delaying it? In this post we will reveal to you why you’re always failing to accomplish your New Year’s resolution:
You’re Always Dwelling in the “Tomorrow” Trap
The root problem why we’re having this mindset is because we think there is always tomorrow. There is always the next day (or next week, months, years) to do our tasks or goals. If you’ve missed doing it today, it’s okay. There’s still tomorrow, right?
While tomorrow will always come, it is not always the case when you have goals or milestones you’re trying to achieve. Delaying it will delay your success more. You’ll never get things done until you decided to take action. And mind you, there is none a better opportunity than to start today.
Why? It’s because we never know what will happen to us the next day. Who knows the next day will be our last day to live on earth. What will happen to your dreams, then? They will end up being a piper’s dream. If not, maybe someone else had the same idea as you. Now what will happen if that person had realized your dream instead of you? Where will it lead you?
The dreadful conclusion of that hurts, we’re all aware of that. But bearing this horrible truth will make you break free from the confines of the bittersweet trap of “tomorrow”.
So, How Do We Start Taking Action TODAY?
1. Establish a Working Schedule With Your Goal.
Humans love routine by nature. We love the feeling of being organized and have a sense of direction with what we’re doing. So if you wanted to start accomplishing your goal, make sure to include that goal in your daily schedule. And this time, treat it like your business meeting or appointment. In this way, you’ll be serious when dealing and accomplishing with it. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself losing the opportunity. Really, you wouldn’t want to miss a business opportunity from an investor, right? Likewise, that investor towards your success is your goal!
2. Tell Someone About Your New Year’s Resolution to Gain Accountability
If you only keep your New Year’s resolution to yourself, chances are, you will keep delaying on it. After all, you won’t have someone scolding you from not fulfilling your goals, isn’t it? That’s why you need to tell someone else about your goals. This will make your goals and resolutions all the more true and tangible. You’ll feel the responsibility of accomplishing it. You’ve already committed yourself to accomplishing it because you told someone about it.
Surely, you wouldn’t want your family, friends, or special someone to be disappointed because you promised them something and turns out you’re not fulfilling it, right? So if we were you, start growing up like a man right now and accomplish that goal of yours! Do you still want to wait for tomorrow? We sure hope not!
