Genie’s Note: Our January follower of the month is Doreen Lerner of The Full Mind Weigh.
Happy New Year!
It’s a new beginning. What do you want to see on December 31st when you look back on this year? When we think about change, we can feel overwhelmed. No matter what your goals are, it’s best to break them down into tiny steps. Each step taken feels like a success, and motivates us to keep going.
* Acknowledge yourself for each tiny step taken. Anchor each tiny step to an established habit, for maximum success.
* If you’re unsure about the change, restrict the new behavior to 30 days and see how you feel at that point.
* Remind yourself of the challenges that you’ve previously overcome.
* Find an accountability partner – someone who will support you and be your cheerleader.
If you become discouraged, remind yourself of why you want to accomplish the goal – what’s your underlying passion or the underlying value that you strongly believe in?
