How to Turn Around the SIX Most Common Mistakes People make about New Year’s Resolutions

It’s that time of the year again where we start the new year with the best of intentions to change and undertake a healthy Life Style.  Unfortunately, by February we revert back to where we were.

We are here to identify what these mistakes are, why they happen and HOW you can turn 2020 into year best year yet.

So lets get started.

  1. Unrealistic and High Expectations

You set yourself a lofty goal to achieve in a short period of time.   An example could be to lose 10kgs of bodyweight in 6 weeks for a wedding.  You start out with a lot of enthusiasm, but after a week, give up. 

This could be due to an injury, pain brought about by inflammation of the joints and muscles, thinking that your body can recover quickly like it did when you were younger.

  • Doing it by yourself

You are highly motivated and start reading and researching the information required for you to make a start.

The trouble is, there is so much information out there that it is hard to separate the wheat from the chaff.

It means you don’t know whether something works or not.

  • Giving up due to Occasional Lapses

We all have lapses and fall off the band wagon when starting a new years resolution.  Guess what?  It HAPPENS, we are human after all.  We are not infallible.

It does not mean you have completely failed and should give up.  Just get back on the saddle and go again.

  • Thinking about the End Result and Forgetting to Enjoy the Journey

You have become focused on what the end result will be when you complete a course and forget to enjoy the little victories and lessons that the journey has provided.

These victories and lessons are what you will remember and use for any future endeavers.

  • Belief and Determination

You can have all the best program in the world, but it doesn’t mean anything if you don’t have the belief and determination to carry it out.  They quit and have many excuses on why the program dose not work, they never focus on their own faults.  They blame circumstances and other people.

  • Goal is not SMART

S = Specific

M = Measurable

A = Attainable

R = Realistic

T = Timely

Solution to Making 2020 YOUR BEST YEAR EVER

  1. Have a Goal.
  2. Make sure your goal is SMART, (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, timely).
  3. Break your goal into a greater number of smaller attainable goals, eat the elephant, one small bite at a time.
  4. Get help from an Expert.
  5. Focus on the Journey as opposed to the end result.
  6. Record your sessions.
  7. Be patient, don’t rush.
  8. Be consistent in your efforts.
  9. Most important of all, DON’T GIVE UP, especially if you have a lapse.
