Kick Ass in 2018

by laurakronen1 on December 31, 2017

Every new day is an opportunity to become a better you, but the start of a New Year, especially, inspires life changing resolutions to many. While I’m not a big fan of resolutions, I do love a solid goal. 

By setting more realistic goals for yourself and not limiting yourself to a once-a-year, do-or-die, all-out assault (i.e resolution) on that mountain of debt, those not so toned thighs, or the closet that hasn’t magically cleaned itself out, you may find that the finish line isn’t so far away after all, if you vow to accomplish a little bit each day and stick to your goals. But you need to be committed.  Nothing magically changes itself.

Start the year with small, manageable changes to your lifestyle. Instead of saying, “I am going to do this, and I am going to keep it up all year”, you should say, “what can I do today to help me achieve my goals?”  It is proven that the feeling of satisfaction is the same whether you accomplish big things or little things, so set goals that you can meet. Sometimes people set their goals too high, for instance, ‘getting my life back together‘.  That can just be way too big and overwhelming to keep track of, to know whether or not you’re even making progress on them.

Also, resolutions should accentuate the positive. Instead of making a resolution that you are going to lose weight, make your resolution that you are going to get healthy this year. Incorporate all of your lifestyle changes to help achieve that.  You might do more than just lose a couple of pounds.

What if, in addition to having resolutions, you could start appreciating yourself for who you really are in a genuine way, having nothing to do with who you are on the outside? What if just being yourself, the way you are right now, is good enough? The concept of being your authentic self is liberating, exciting and fulfilling. When you have the courage to just be who you are, without apology or pretense, so much of the suffering, stress and worry in life simply disappears.

Whatever the new year means to you, let it be a time of introspection and self-evaluation allowing you to chart a course to better yourself. Maybe you want to focus on your appearance, get a new job, take your stress level down a few notches, find your authentic self, or perhaps even open yourself to true LOVE. Make 2018 YOUR year and become a better you.  Jump right in NOW. Both feet.  Stop dipping just one toe. Look fear in the face and say you just don’t care.

And, if you need help staying the course, consider a life coach.  Make sure that you work with the type of coach that is there for you whenever you need support. That’s how changes happen. You need to be working on your goals all day, every day – not just one hour a week.  I’m available on text 24/7 and always just a phone call away.  I coach clients all around the world so, when you need support in the middle of the night, don’t be surprised if you hear back from me!  A life coach can inspire you to do accomplish what you have only dreamed of. Sometimes it takes a kick start or a kick in the ass to kick ass yourself. It will all be worth it, if you stay committed.  Happy 2018!
