Motivational Change - Article by Michael Dylan New Year's Resolutions for 07 - Article by Michael Dylan

As the new year draws closer and many people are going into holiday mode, some people are thinking about the year ahead. It can be a time for reviewing the year that was and thinking about the year that will be.

Many people will be coming up with new year's resolution for 2007 even though they can't even remember what their new years resolution was for this current year! While many come up with a new year's resolution, they do so in a flippant, light hearted manner. We may commit to lose weight or save money, but before January is even finished we will be pigging out on chocolate and buying designer clothes or fast cars.

If you're going to take the time to come up with a resolution for the new year ahead, why not make it a serious commitment? Treat it like a real goal that you plan to achieve.

Make sure you are Realistic about the Goal
The reason many goals are not achieved is because they are unrealistic. If you are currently earning $40,000 per year, with no savings, and you want to be a millionaire within the next 12 months, you may be setting yourself up to fail. Lottery should not be a part of your goal setting as you have very little control over winning money. Your goals should be ambitious enough to get you out your comfort zone, but realistic enough to be achievable.

Get Clear about your Goal
Write your goal down in detail with time frames and specific numbers or objectives. If you want to lose weight this year, your goal could be to lose a set number of kilos of pounds each month, with a total to be lost before the end of 2007. Or you may choose to increase sales by 50% for the year.

Set Mini Goals
Rather than just focusing on one major goal like saving 20 percent of a home loan for a deposit, have mini goals that are regularly achieved. If you have set yourself 12 months to save $12,000 your goal could be to save $1000 each month. Which means your one goal of $12,000 should be divided into 12 mini goals of $1000.

Be Committed
Understand that if your goal or resolution is even slightly ambitious, it will take time, possibly money, dedication, persistence, and a lot of commitment.It may require further education, more work, risk, and a lot of sacrifice on your part.

If you are serious about achieving your new year's resolution for 2007 it is worth taking the extra time necessary to get clear about what your resolution is and how it will be achieved. Don't be flippant about the next 12 months and use it to achieve something worthwhile.

Some of the most common new years resolutions will be to lose weight, save more money, get out of debt, improve education, find a better job, join the gym, quit smoking, and to spend more time with the family. A lot of these changes will take a lot of commitment and dedication to achieve.
