Forget New Year's Resolutions, 2018 is All About Goals
The problem with New Year’s Resolutions is that they seem to never really stick. That’s because the goals outlined in most New Year’s Resolutions are rooted in habits and behaviors that we haven’t un-learned yet. Losing weight, getting healthy, improving our careers, working on personal relationships, stopping alcohol and drug use… if we knew how to do these things properly, we’d already be doing them, and wouldn’t need a New Year’s Resolution to make them happen.
Rather than making a New Year’s Resolution that ends up being a hollow promise to yourself, set yourself up for success by focusing on 2018 goals instead. Unlike the general terms used to describe New Year’s Resolutions, long-term goals tend to be more specific, achievable, and realistic ideas that you actually have control over. But even with achievable, realistic goals, some of us still need help developing the proper habits to make those goals a reality. That’s where help in the form of a Certified Recovery Coach comes in.
