Happy New Year! 2019 is a memory, and 2020 is just beginning. The year is full of possibilities, hope, and opportunities. Did you make resolutions for the new year? Keeping them can be a challenge, but we have some quotes to motivate you and help you stay the course.
We can be our own worst enemies. We doubt ourselves, and this can lead to self-sabotage. Don’t tell yourself you can’t. You can. If your goal is to go back to school, you may doubt yourself so much that you decide not to go or not to finish. Be positive; it sounds cliché, but it helps. Also, ask a friend to help you through those moments of self-doubt. When someone listens, gives you a hug, and reminds you that you can do it, that support can go a long way.
Put Your Best Foot Forward
Let’s say your resolution is to become more physically fit. What’s your attitude toward this goal? If you approach it with resentment and dread, you’ll rarely exercise, and your goal will seem unreachable. What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year. If you approach this goal with enthusiasm and a positive attitude, it won’t seem so insurmountable. You may even begin to enjoy exercise.
Let’s go back to the physical fitness goal for a minute. It doesn’t happen overnight; it takes time and effort. Sometimes it might happen in tiny increments, and that’s completely acceptable. Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned. So, if you’re not sure if you’ll be able to fit an hour at the gym in later, take advantage of the opportunity to work out now for twenty minutes.
There Will be Bumps in the Road
Nobody’s perfect, and that includes you. You’ll have missteps, and things will go wrong. It’s a fact of life. Accept your mistakes and move forward. If you dwell on them, they’ll impede your progress; however, if you accept them as part of the process, you can continue with your forward motion.
Every little bit of progress is progress. When you’re having trouble motivating yourself and staying on track, think of what you’ve accomplished so far. Be grateful for it, and celebrate it for a moment. Let that gratitude and sense of accomplishment propel you to keep going. Gratitude changes everything, and it’s true for this, too.
