11 Tips to Making Resolutions Realities.

  • 1. Make a list of your goals and select the top three to five that are the most important to you. Pray for God’s guidance in the process. He knows best.
  • 2. Be realistic. Reaching for a
    goal should stretch you, but it should
    also be doable. Decide on a reasonable
    time frame for reaching each goal.
  • 3. Don’t try to do everything
    at once. Focus on your top
    goal for a set period of time. Then
    move to goal number two, while
    maintaining the progress made toward
    reaching the first one, and so on.
  • 4. Pray. Prayer brings into play the
    spiritual help you need to reach your
    goals.
  • 5. Work with God. Change
    involves overcoming past thought and
    behavioral patterns. This is never easy,
    but change for the better is possible
    if you ask God to help and follow
    His lead. “With God nothing will be
    impossible.”1
  • 6. Chart your progress. Keep
    track of how far you’ve come, using a
    journal or chart. Keeping records and
    reviewing them periodically can also
    help you to identify weak spots.
  • 7. Get help from others. Share your plan with a friend and ask
    for his or her help. Being accountable
    to someone will give you added
  • 8. Don’t be discouraged by
    your mistakes. You will have some
    setbacks and “off” days. Take these
    lows as a reminder that you can’t do it
    on your own. Draw closer to God and
    depend more on His help. Tomorrow
    is a fresh chance to do better!
  • 9. Be in it for the long haul.
    If you are truly serious about making
    a change, you will be willing to see it
    through, no matter how long it takes.
  • 10.Visualize victory.
    Periodically visualize what your life
    will be like once your goal is reached.
    Picture the advantages you will gain
    and how much happier, healthier, or
    more productive you will be.
  • 11. Reward yourself for each
    goal you reach. The real reward
    will be the feeling of accomplishment
    and the benefits you’ll experience
    from the change you’ve made, but
    having a physical treat attached to a
    specific goal can make it even more enjoyable.
  • “Nobody can go back and
    start a new beginning, but
    anyone can start today and
    make a new ending.”
