NEW YEAR’S “LITTLE BITES”
Oh yes, those New Year’s resolutions. We all make-um, we all break-um. If we are totally focused maybe, just maybe, we stay with it till mid-January.
Let’s do it differently this year. Feel free to make all the huge all-encompassing mind blowing resolutions for your desired life changes but then: break them down into manageable little action steps, just some little bites.
For instance let’s say you feel heavy and you want to lose 30 pounds of body weight. Instead resolve to eliminate 3 pounds with each passing week. It isn’t such a terrible frightening goal as the entire 30 pounds. It is attainable without having to constantly worry and fight the battle of the whole amount.
Perhaps you have decided that you would be happier living in another location. Instead of packing your bags on January first, simply resolve to begin researching the possibilities in as many locations as attract you. You might order maps, populations numbers, locations of stores that you feel necessary, cost of rents etc.
Let’s admit it there is something about the start of a brand new year that sometimes causes us (metaphorically) to jump overboard. Breathe! Decide what your optimum end result would be and work backward from there.
If I truly want result “Z” what would I need to do first, what action should I take to accomplish steps “Y” and “X”? Or if I have not build any platform leading up to accomplishing “Z” should I go all the way back to “A”?
I promise you will feel much more in control if you will just outline and put in writing the small actions that lead up to your desired large result. You are more likely to stay the course and obtain the ultimate winning goal by taking action on those “little bites”.
As a certified clinical hypnotist I have helped many clients obtain life-affirming and gratifying results by guiding them one important step at a time. Is there a beautiful change you would like to make for 2017? Do you want this year to be the best one ever? Let’s plan together. I am here to help you.
