As the New Year approaches, the pressures for resolutions increase. This may come to you with ease or it may feel like fingers nails scratching against a chalkboard, screeching loudly for a an idea to put into action. Did you know that about 50% of the population sets a New Years resolution? Did you also know that research indicates that only 8% of those who set one, actually follow through?! Believe me, those statistics are shocking to me too!
When faced with this New Year, I like to first take a look at the past year and look at what I've learned. If everything I went through, made me the powerful woman I am today, then I have no regrets, and I have many lessons to refer to moving forward. This New Year, take a moment to embrace and reflect on the lessons learned with the understanding that all you go through is meant to happen for your growth to be where you are today.
If you feel called to take that next step and make a resolution, make a small one to start. Small goals create a likelihood of following through as the fear response stays off and your strengths are able to shine through. As we know, success feeds upon success so your accomplishment with that small goal will invite in a feeling of personal strength which will lead you to set another goal that you will be sure to be successful with. If you need some support, coaching, retreats, etc, you know where to find them for your New Year :-). Sending happy well wishes for an amazing 2015.
