I can’t believe how far we’ve come. I’m thrilled to have had this time with you. Thank you so much for joining me. You’ve learned the difference between a resolution and a goal. You’ve also discovered how to best set these for yourself, what components strong intentions should have and how to avoid common pitfalls.
We’ve also learned how common it is for resolutions to slip away and go unfulfilled. I’ve enjoyed sharing with you some tricks and strategies for overcoming the obstacles that are bound to happen when pursuing an objective. Challenges and setbacks are inevitable. It’s how you handle them that matters.
I tried to touch upon the people in your life, as well, and the role they play in your success. It’s important to have cheerleaders and a support system as you’re pursuing a goal. These folks will motivate you when you don’t think you can keep going. Having an accountability partner or system in place is also wise. Knowing you have to answer to someone if you fall off the wagon can help to increase your focus. Don’t forget that we’re all human. Asking for help and enlisting the know-how of experts is part of the process. It can make your journey a lot less rocky.
Finally, remember that it’s important to be flexible during this time. Keep track of your progress and know that sometimes a goal may need to be reassessed, tweaked or thrown away entirely. Also, know that there is a whole world of possibilities out there when you reach this one goal or complete your resolution. Enjoy exploring your next step. Embrace the challenge.
