As we finish up 2022, the word I think of for the year is interesting. There were a lot of ups and downs and uncertainty, but we will enter a new year with 365 blank pages. It is up to us how we want to write our 2023 story.
These are a few statistics that probably won’t surprise too many people. (source- inside-out mastery)
- 38.5% of US adults set New Year’s resolutions
- 59% of young adults (ages 18-34) set resolutions
- 48% want to exercise more (top 3 resolutions are health-related)
- 23% quit after the first week
- 36% don’t make it past the first month
- 9% successfully achieve their New Year resolutions.
We all have the same 24 hours and 1,440 minutes each day. Our resolutions need to be simple and realistic.
If one of your goals is to exercise more, then you need to develop a process and routine, which then becomes a daily habit. Focus on one day at a time and stick to the process. If you make this a daily habit and focus on winning the day, you have a better chance of reaching your goals.
You must do the process today and every day to be successful. If we have a bad day, we focus on tomorrow for a win.
- Set the goal
- Define the daily process
- Develop a routine that makes sense
- Create this a daily habit (ex: exercise 7-7:30 every morning-put on the calendar)
- Most important – be consistent every day.
So how will your 2023 story be written?
Happy New Year, and I wish everyone great success in 2023 – one day at a time.
- Stay positive
- Stay focused
- Stay true to your vision
- Be the exception!
