It’s the New Year and that means for some, New Year Resolutions. I would like to help you succeed with your resolutions with a challenge.
My hope with this blog, is to help you be successful and not want to quit within the first month. That can be frustrating and off-putting with your goal. That is the last thing I want for you.
I wrote a blog last year about goal setting, Goal Setting: How to Reach Results. If you haven’t read that, I recommend that you do.
For this blog, I won’t repeat what I said with that last blog. Instead, this will be a challenge.
A 30-day challenge that will help you create new habits that will last forever. Most people will create a goal and have no plan of action to achieve that goal. Without a plan of action, they make to many changes hoping something will stick, a recipe for failure.
Take on this challenge and change your life forever.
WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?
This can work with any goal you have created, and I want you to think of one actionable step that you can do everyday that will help you succeed.
I want you to think small.
With this small action, I want you to make it a non-negotiable to complete everyday for 30 days.
Here is an example:
I want to read more for this New Year, so my small action step is to read 5 pages every day. I can do more if I want to, but I must read 5 pages minimum.
It’s small and very easy to do without it overwhelming me. I will do this every day for 30 days.
The goal is to slowly add on from there. The next 30 days I will read 6 pages everyday as my new goal. Its non-negotiable, so schedule it and set a reminder for yourself.
This can work with any goal.
You want to lose fat?
Think of the smallest, actionable step that you can do everyday to make that happen.
- Drink more water
- Eat more fruits
- Eat more veggies
- Plan meals
- Walk more
- Strength train
- Quality sleep
Use some of these ideas and think of something you can do everyday and make it non-negotiable.
I will drink one cup of water as soon as I wake up.
Next 30 days, I will 1 cup of water when I wake up, and before lunch.
Slow and steady will win the race.
Is this going to be a very slow approach?
Yes, but it will be sustainable, and very easy to make these small changes into lifelong habits.
That is the goal. Forever changes.
