3 Reasons You May Need to Change Your New Year’s Resolution
It’s almost the end of January, which means it’s time to check in on those New Year’s resolutions! About a month ago when you set those goals, you felt motivated to get started on them, right? But as time progresses, your goals may change too. You shouldn’t feel guilty scratching a resolution that doesn’t make sense anymore. We want to help you understand that changing your goals is totally okay! Here’s why your goals may have changed.
1. Your priorities have changed
Sometimes we feel attached to our goals and guilty when we don’t achieve them, even if they aren’t what we want anymore. Don’t be afraid to make adjustments to a goal that doesn’t grow you as a person anymore. It’s okay to restart. What matters is that you refocus on a resolution that aligns with your current priorities.
2. You need a boost
Your schedule is busy, and distractions are everywhere. It’s okay to need a boost to realign your priorities and get back on track toward your goal. A few ways to spark your passion could be through seeking a mentor who can help guide you in your journey, practicing gratitude each morning, or taking time to remind yourself why you started in the first place. Was it because you wanted to be able to spend more time with your kids? Use that to fuel your motivation for change!
3. The resolution wasn’t right for you
Maybe the goal was too challenging, so it was hard to get started. Maybe the goal was too easy, so you didn’t feel like you gained anything from it. It’s okay to recognize that ultimately it wasn’t the right resolution for you. It’s more important to do something about it. Take time to reflect on your goals and figure out what exactly you want to achieve and if it’s going to be manageable for you.
It’s okay to make adjustments where necessary, and these changes will allow you to find a better path toward your goals. Don’t think of these adjustments as setbacks, think of them as opportunities to become the best version of you! Take time to reflect on where you see yourself years from now, and create new daily goals you can adopt to help get you there.
