3 things to do to get the New Years on the Right Path

Hi, it's  Anita Sandoval MA, LPC-S again and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. 

My belief is to help those with less privileged and unhealthy backgrounds, remove some obstacles for them so that, then, they too will have an opportunity to be more productive and lift themselves up to achieve their greatest potential and live life successfully. 

Today's Topic is 3 things you can do to get on the right path this year of 2016. 
  • Have you ever felt as if you are wanting to start the year right but then something happens and you're back where you started the year before. 
  • Are you finally tired of repeating the same unhealthy things over and over and want to put an end to that and start something new that is healthy and possibility of success. 
I like everybody else have felt like I am moving at snail speed and wish to move a little faster to get to the goals I aim to accomplish. After much reading and trial and error I realized that the way to move faster is to do at least these several things:
  1. Find a way to stay focused on your goals and set timelines for each one. Like people say it doesn't matter if you don't meet all of the goals in the set time frame as long as you are headed in the rights direction.
  2. Develop a positive support system with people who will be supportive of not only your successes but also your failures. It's like I always say, when the going gets tough, the people who care and are there for you are the ones who not only do NOT pass judgment but will let you be yourself and still be positive about who you are and what you want to do. 
  3. Realize that through success also comes some failures. Every successful person has had some bumps in the road. "It's ok to fail" again "It's ok to fail" What is not ok is to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results. If you really want to be successful in making your New Year's Resolutions into reality, just keep trying and learn from those failures, dust them off as life lessons and go back at it again.
I know it is easier said than done! I know some of my resolutions deal with weight management and getting my book of "Broken Chains" "Cadenas Rotas" across the USA. But in order to do that I myself have to follow at least these 3 steps. Let's make this 2016 the best memorable year ever!

What are your New Years Resolutions? What have you tried in the years back that has worked or not worked out for you?
