New Year’s Resolutions- good idea/bad idea?

Education & Training with Real Estate Base Camp

This is the time of year that many people enjoy their friends and families and simply "unplug."  This is also the time of year that many of us make resolutions for the upcoming year.  Others hesitate to make resolutions because their good intentions to keep resolutions don't last very long.  When you think about it, that doesn't make much sense.

Resolutions are actually goals.  Most agents take the time to set their financial goals.  It is important to take the time to set personal goals (resolutions) to achieve the balance necessary for a successful life. We need to set goals for: health, social, family, financial, professional and spiritual. 

What would you like to achieve in each of these areas?  That's your goal; that's your resolution.  Next, create an affirmation around it, i.e., weight:  "I look and feel great at 138 (lbs)."

I've included some aspirational affirmations I have picked up over the years.  Next blog, we can share ideas on how you can keep your resolutions.

  • I believe in me!
  • I am a money magnet - money is attracted to me.
  • I have the strength and talent to make my dreams come true.       
  • I am personally responsible for my success!
  • I create my success through my thoughts and my actions.
    With a solid plan and belief in myself there isn't anything I can't do.                                                                            
  • I always have more than enough of everything I need.

I used to always say, "I make my own happiness."  It went away over the years.  Maybe I need to get back to it.

I don't really set "resolutions".  I recently heard that the word resolution can set people up to fail and they need to use the word goal.  Too many people set unrealistic "resolutions", but they'll set more attainable "goals".
