New Year’s resolutions are common. Actually achieving them, not so much. But that doesn’t have to be you.
To kick off the year strong, I’m sharing 5 tips that will help you realize your goals and achieve even greater success this year.
Tip #4 Don’t Go It Alone
Embrace the concept of partnership – reaching out to people and resources that can help you. To get to the goal line on those resolutions, you’ll experience ups and downs. There will be days when you feel like throwing in the towel. But don’t quit! Reach out for support when the going gets tough. There are people in your circle, including me, who are routing for your success.
My family and close friends are always there for me, but I have to share with them what I’m trying to accomplish so they know how to help. My friends and colleagues in the professional associations I belong to, like the National Speakers Association, the Association for Talent Development, and the Society for Human Resource Management, or a bible study group, are great confidants and resources, too.
People have ideas or access to resources that could be beneficial to your progress. There is strength in numbers. You don’t have to be the superhero. In fact, if you think about it, even superheroes have sidekicks.
2-Minute Take Action:
Your two-minute exercise for today is to make a list of the people who would be willing to come along side you to encourage your progress. What resources would be helpful? What community or professional network would be supportive?
I’ll share the 5th and final tip next week. Don’t miss it.
