Exercise Your Resolution

January is almost here! Have you decided on a resolution for 2016? If so, maybe you can bulk it up to see lasting change in the new year. Folks often feel disappointed in themselves come spring (or sooner) for failing to be resolute. Maybe it’s not the person who is to blame, but the resolution itself? Lose weight, eat better, make money, stop drinking, start saving… These are common (and empty) resolutions that do not lead to success. I often talk about how specificity is key when establishing and reaching goals, so when came across this resolution exercise I just had to share! It solidifies goals and allows the individual to truly define what their ideal vision of the future should be.

Here's what you do…

Write a letter to yourself to be sealed and opened on January 1st, 2017. Make sure to store it in a safe place. In this letter outline everything you wish to accomplish this year. Try to write down your goals AND the actions you are planning to take to reach them. Get detailed = Big goals, little goals, fears, excitements, obstacles.

Then describe what the ideal outcome would be. What is your ideal vision of YOU? And how does it feel to be living that ideal? Create a clear picture of what you want your life to look like by this time next year. Again, be as detailed as possible!

When you are finished, your letter will act as a map. You have to have a route to get where you are going before you set out on a journey, right? This exercise can propel you past the general “lose weight” or “eat better” goals and set you up for concrete results. There is also the added pressure of knowing you will be the one re-opening the letter next year.  Don’t let your future self down! Give it a try and happy new year!
