  • Greetings!

    The tradition of the New Year's Resolutions goes all the way back to the early Roman's. They had a tradition of exchanging gifts on New Years Eve by giving one another branches from sacred trees for good fortune. New Year's Eve has always been a time for looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It's a time to reflect on the changes we want to make in our lives.

    Resolution/Goal Setting Success

    New Year's resolutions are essentially goals made on New Year's. Approximately 100 million Americans will venture down this well traveled path, making hastily written, ill conceived goals. It is a route covered with promises and according to a recent study, 80% of those making resolutions have failed by January 20th.
    So what is the secret? According to a new study done by the University of Washington, the keys to making a successful resolution are a person's confidence that he or she can make the behavior change and the commitment to making that change. Change is a process, not a one time effort. To be successful in making resolutions it is best to:

    • Make sure your goals are well defined and specific.
    • Create life balance by setting goals for all areas of life.
    • Have a strong commitment to make a change.
    • Have coping strategies to deal with obstacles as they arise.
    • Keep track of your progress and congratulate yourself on successes.

    How to "Design Your Future"

    One way to reach more of your goals is to attend a goal setting workshop or seminar. There are many out there to choose from. Selecting one that you can relate to is key.
    This Friday, I am conducting another "Designing Your Future" workshop. This is different from the average goal setting workshop in that I give you tools to clear out obstacles that typically arise with the setting of a goal. Fear of failure or success, limiting decisions and beliefs that are no longer empowering are the kind of obstacles that we will deal with in this one day workshop. We also, utilizing hypnosis and NLP, create the ability to have more resources like, confidence, motivation and courage in your life.
