New Year’s Resolutions come and go every year. We begin each year with great resolve, commitment and motivation. Unfortunately, as time passes so too does our inspiration wane. To avoid becoming discouraged and losing sight of the objective, it is imperative to initiate a careful evaluation of that which you truly would like to accomplish ensuring it is both realistic and above all, attainable.
Begin with smaller, more easily achievable goals to ensure a continuous trend of accomplishments in order to maintain a positive and optimistic outlook. Sometimes less is more. Don’t set yourself up for failure with a vague resolve such as simply, “losing weight” or “finding a better job”. How? Where? Who? When? Unanswered questions will stop you in your tracks and undermine your chances of success.
If you are considering a career transition or are currently in transition but unable to establish a clearly defined career path, contact a professional. You could easily discover the answers you are seeking in a career coaching session to enable you to move forward.
