so much from the situations we confront
as from our ability to handle them"
Great goals everyone,
I do not write yearly goals down as New Year's goals. New Year's Resolutions are a set-up for failure for me and then I beat myself up for not reaching my goals.
Here's a simple three-step formula to make any change you wish in your life:
First, decide what behavior you want to change or goal you want to achieve. Carefully craft a statement about one or two benefits that will come as a result of changing this behavior or achieving this goal.
How will your life be enriched or improved if you change this behavior or achieve this goal?
Next, make a list of the relevant steps necessary to attain this goal. Be sure to include short-term, mid-term and long-term benefits so you can feel good about all the tiny wins you will have on your way to making this change or achieving this goal.
Last, be sure to include two or three strategies that you are planning to employ. Also include two or three special people who will be your cheerleaders and support you through this time of change. That is jum my 2 cents and if goal setting works for you I am delighted.
I will set daily goals that are simply ways for me to motivate myself but not everyday.
I am weaning off my AD so I am being gentle with myself right now.
Thanks Ben for starting this thread. You are the best.
Ben my dear friend,
I have broken so many New Year's resolutions I am afraid they may haul me to jail someday so that is why I changed my way of thinking............
