Every year some of us make a list of things of what we want to start at the beginning of each new year, some choose weight loss, some to stop smoking. Then there's spending time with family, traveling more and even not to make any at all. When I made resolutions I felt as if I broke a promise to myself if I didn't stick with it or accomplish what I set out to do. Being an Aquarian and all, I usually go big or go home. This tactic has caused me drama and it even has caused me good deal of fortune, but in this case... When making my resolutions I often would pick unrealistic goals and when I got defeated, overwhelmed or if I didn't reach them I would put myself down or fall into a depression thinking I wasn't good enough. So a few years ago I decided that it was time to do something that would work for me and keep up to speed with my expectations. I was speaking to a fellow coach and got their opinion on what I was trying to accomplished. They reminded me that in order to reach the bigger goals I have to do the several smaller ones first. Mental V-8 forehead smack, duh I knew that. At the end of the year when I work on the things I want to accomplish in the coming year I start with three, sometimes more, major goals and then work out the steps to reach them. I also do this on a smaller scale each week/month, it has helped me and those I coach. So this year I made my list and with every step I take I get closer to my goal without disappointing myself or feeling like I broke promises to myself.
