According to StatisticBrain.com, 45 percent of Americans make New Year’s Resolutions. If you make them, I hope that you ARE among the 8 percent who successfully achieve them.
Personally, I don’t make resolutions. They are by nature short in term and I believe I am here to do my best to live life to the fullest. Establishing goals, based on values and vision works best. Yes, I like to break them down into 90-days, one year, and five years. My clients walk this process though as well. I love John Maxwell’s new year’s process which he does a mid-year review/recalibration.
Establishing SMART goals are harder to do, no doubt. Nonetheless, the energy you invest doing this exercise is key. So, is the energy you invest going through beliefs that are potentially limiting you from staying aligned with your values and vision.
For most of you, establishing SMART goals isn’t news. Most organizations require employees to establish them. Unfortunately, many C-Execs, VPs, Directors, and Managers leave out activities to elevate the energy and health of employees—key not only to the bottom line but also to lower turnover. I am serious about helping corporations to achieve that as well.
When you set your health and fitness goals, not only be SMART about them, make them SMART:
What is also interesting is the reasons people believe they fail to accomplish their resolutions:
- Not enough willpower (58%)
- Lack of plan (44%)
- Time management (32%)
- Lack of support (29%)
- Goals weren’t well-defined (28%)
- Tried to make too drastic of a change too quickly (22%)
- Resolution was unrealistic or too ambitious (18%)
- Financial burden (15%)
- Circumstance drastically changed (12%)
- Injury or health reason (6%)
If any of these resonate with you, please STOP! Stop the yo-yo and emotional roller coaster you’re putting yourself through. I know how it feels…I went through it for many years. It’s NOT healthy….it raises cortisol and insulin and you store fat. Seriously, a health and fitness coach can help you with 8 out of 10.
If you are honest with yourself and realize that what you’ve been doing year over year isn’t working, it’s time to try something else. If you are ready for change, committed to your long-term health, excited about getting results, ready to accept accountability, support, knowledge to succeed, you might consider a hiring a coach—just like I did. Ditch Resolutions. Get Real. Get Results.
