Here's your fail safe guide to making - and sticking to - your New Year's resolutions. #FreshStart
You know what they say about the best laid plans? Well New Year’s resolutions are by far the most easily discarded resolutions ever made.
How many times have you vowed to get fit, change your diet or go travelling throughout the year ahead only to forget about all your plans by March?
If your dream is to finally start that new career in the travel industry, then talk to us while you’re planning your New Year’s Resolutions. Why? Because training with us will help you turn that new career into a reality in no time.
To help make 2017 the year of the best possible life changes, we have compiled some tips to help you ensure you stick to all your New Year’s Resolutions. Thank us when you are living the travel dream next year!
1) Research and planning
Zzzzzz, sounds boring right? Well not really if you do it right. Before you commit to any resolutions do a bit of forward planning and learn more about what it is you’d like to change. For example, if you’re thinking you need a new career, look into training options within your new industry.
2) Reality check
Want to lose some weight, make a career change, or buy a house? Make sure your goals are realistic. Rather than vow to look like a Victoria’s Secret model, be CEO of an ASX listed company or buy yourself a seaside mansion, plan for some realistic changes (and if the list above is realistic for you, then congratulations friend, we salute you!). Maybe you want to achieve a new qualification, or fit back into your favourite pair of jeans. Achieve your first realistic goal and then carry on!
3) Be specific
Coming up with vague, pie-in-the-sky-type resolutions mean they are doomed to fail. By making them more specific, easy to measure and linked to a set time period, you’re much more likely to smash your goals. For example, if you want a career change think about a resolution like: by this time next year I will have a new qualification and a new role within an industry I love.
4) Check-in - regularly
By giving yourself a set time period in which to achieve your goals, you can keep yourself accountable by checking in and tracking your progress at different points throughout the year. This will help keep you on task.
5) Shout it from the rooftops
Tell anyone who will listen about your New Year’s Resolutions! The more people you tell, the more accountable you are and the more likely you are to follow through and achieve your goals.
6) Persistency will get you everywhere
You know the drill- if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. There is a reason that line is a cliché- it’s true! Just because you have one slip up, or challenging week, doesn’t mean you need to derail your entire future plan. Some of the most successful people we know tell us you have to fail before you succeed. Just keep at it!
