How disappointing it is that every year we start a New Year with high hopes but soon find that New Year Resolutions don’t work.
The start of the New Year is often the perfect time to turn a new page in your life, which is why so many people make New Year’s resolutions, but research suggests only a fraction actually keep them.
I want you to know that no matter how last year was for you… this year can be even better. If it was less than great, this is your chance to punch the reset button and start fresh.
When the page flips on the calendar and you wake up on January 1 I want you to have prepared yourself to make this the first day of your best year yet.
A new year gives you that chance… the promise that no matter what’s happened in the past or where you are today, you can go on to transform your life.
Consider this: 95 percent of people who set goals or make New Year’s resolutions give up on them before the first page of the calendar turns. Evidence that New Year Resolutions don’t work. My mission is to ensure you won’t be one of them.
You can design this year to be your best year yet, by using the Single Page Plan.
If you want to achieve your big goals in life and design the future you have always dreamed of having, then you must start by life planning.
To do this there is an important process you need to learn. Today I want to go through the first step in the process. Even as you look towards the new year which is fast approaching, it’s important to step back and take a look at the year just finished—take an inventory, add it all up, and see how you did.
It is time for you to take a look at the year just gone.
What were your successes, and where did you come up short? What has worked, what didn’t? Which were good decisions, which were bad? It’s important to learn the lessons of life quickly or you will no doubts repeat them.
If you skip this step, you may not even realize you are off-course until too much time has passed, too many resources have been spent, and your life is on the rocks, and 2018 ends up being another unfulfilled year.
Let me give you some questions to help you examine your last 12 months.
On the negative side:
How long did it take you in 2017 to decide New Year Resolutions don’t work?
Now on the Positive
Once you have written down your negative and positive parts of 2017 I want you to consider these questions.
This is only your starting point, but an important one that you must do. Soon I’ll share with you the next step for designing your Best Year Yet.
In want you to prove this coming year that rather than New Year Resolutions don’t work, that in truth they can sky rocket your life, because they can, you just need the right process to follow.
Now take time out and review your year just gone.
New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change. Sarah Ban Breathnach
