Dreams, hopes, and goals are just that if you don't develop a plan, a strategy, and ultimately the mindset to achieve. Holding yourself accountable at this moment is essential for long-term accountability and strengthens your perspective and energy toward achievement. New year, new me only works if you have motivation, and minimal manifestation comes with a lack of motivation. But this year doesn't have to be that way, and you can set yourself in motion to head into the new year with an accountability mindset.
But how? accountability looks different for each person, and the good news is, there are many strategies and systems that you can adapt to help you keep your mind on reaching your goals. It's important to consider what works best for you:
As you head into the new year, here are a few tips and ideas to help you stay on top of your new year's resolutions.
Be specific about what it is you want to achieve in the new year. When you plan very specifically, it makes it easier to develop a plan to achieve.
Don't Overwhelm Yourself
It's easy to want to do everything, but let's be honest: when we plan too many things, it can feel incredibly daunting. When you focus on one area at a time, you are much more motivated to achieve those things!
Allow yourself time to sit in your thoughts and energy to plan what you want to achieve. If you don't adequately prepare, stepping away is easy when you encounter an obstacle. But planning prevents you from throwing in the towel when things get tough.
Ready Your Mind
Sit in the now, and think about the roadblocks you have faced this year. What has prevented you from meeting your goals? Chances are many of the goals you plan to set for yourself have been lingering in the back of your mind. But, by thinking about what stopped you this past year, you can begin to believe in yourself.
Change is a process, be patient with yourself. You have chosen a journey to be better, but you have to accept that a journey takes time. But, by being patient, you can keep your energy positive.
At the beginning of a new year, we feel rejuvenated and ready to head into a new year. However, those feelings tend to fade, so with accountability comes acceptance that not all days will be easy. Remind yourself consistently why you have set that goal. Having renewed motivation will keep you on a solid path of accountability.
