Don’t beat yourself up if they’re already proving to be a tough challenge. Take a deep breath and reassess where you are. Were are you in a positive state of mind when you set them or were you coming from a place of guilt and self-blame?
Just to recap as I emphasised previously, setting intentions that you would like to see come to fruition this year from a place of self-love will more than likely result in success. It doesn’t matter if you have made that same old negative New Year’s resolution. If you are struggling with it, it is not good for your wellbeing. You can change it now by rethinking what it is you would really like to achieve. Get back in touch with those dreams that you have for your life. What are they? What are you passionate about? Is it better health and well-being? Finding the perfect partner? Or perhaps going for that promotion at work?
Remember to choose only one or two things that are not going to overwhelm you, that can fit into your present commitments and responsibilites. Goals that succeed are those that are realistic, achievable and specific.
When you come from a more positive frame of mind when thinking about goals you start to feel excitement and elation. This helps you plan what it is you need to do clearly rather than rushing into making changes that are unsustainable
Writing out your goals and intentions for the year is also a good way of anchoring them and then they are more likely to succeed. How would you feel if you succeeded in this intention? How would you feel if you didn’t try it out? You can look back on them at the end of year and congratulate yourself on everything that you have achieved.
