Then look at the opposite outcome. Think about what will happen if you don’t follow through.

For example, ask yourself “What will happen if I continue to gain weight or keep the weight on that I have?”

Is this change important because your health is at risk?

Is staying the same making your life better or worse?

Be objective, but kind as you put things in perspective.

Reflect and don’t be afraid to adjust

Once you have completed the last question, take time to go over your thoughts.  Do you feel that the pros of incorporating these goals in your life outweigh the cons?  Do you feel like these resolutions are truly YOURS, and not goals you think you are supposed to have?  If the latter, don’t be afraid to go back and edit or even change your goals.

When you feel authentic in your resolution, the process of implementing them will become enjoyable and attainable.
