Do you know the secret that will allow you to achieve ANY and EVERY New Years resolution you set from this day forward? The answer might surprise you.
The main reason why so many people become new years resolutions dropouts is because they have not taken the time to discover and establish the proper inspiration and positive success habits, which will allow them to get a jumpstart on their resolutions. By getting a jumpstart on your new years resolutions you will be positioning yourself for success early, but that’s not all. If you want to really succeed this year and not have to make excuses as to why you didn’t accomplish your goals later this year, start by finding the inspiration within and changing your habits.
- It always starts with you and the decisions you make.
“Good habits are hard to form and easy to live with. Bad habits are easy to form and hard to live with. Nothing is neutral. Everything counts.” ~ Brian Tracy
This article will focus on how to discover the proper inspiration, identify negative habits that are holding you back and what you can do to overcome them. Keep in mind that what works for one person may not work for others, therefore its important to remind yourself that ‘“Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into, but hard to get out of.” It will take some time to develop new, positive, success oriented habits. The amount of time it will take is largely determined by your willingness to accept change and staying consistent, even when you think you are having a bad day.
The first step to breaking old negative habits and getting a jumpstart on your new years resolutions is to re-visit and re-connect with your main goal for the new-year. Developing a deep emotional connection to that goal will help spark some inspiration within.
Some of the questions you should consider and invest some time exploring are;
- Why is this particular goal important to me?
- What’s important about the ‘why’ its important to me?
- How important is it that I achieve this goal?
Example; My new years goal is to start exercising and get back into shape.
Why? This goal is important to me because I want a firm sexy body.
What’s important about having a firm sexy body? It will make me feel great and I’ll have tons of women/men flocking towards me.
- Finding the proper inspiration will help you stick with your plan long after the initial excitement and enthusiasm wears off.
You see, motivation is great for helping us get started, but tends to wear off quickly like a sugar high. Whereas inspiration comes from much deeper within us and is guaranteed to last, propelling us forward.
The second step to breaking the cycle of old negative habits and jumpstarting your new years resolutions is to take a look at what you do on a daily basis from the time you wake up to the time you go to sleep at night.
Everything we do (at least 85%) on a daily basis is a result of our habits.
Let me give you a basic example to illustrate;
Most people will wake up in the morning at a set time and if they don’t hit the snooze button will get out of bed, make coffee and watch the news and/or smoke a cigarette. After that they are off to work, spending anywhere from 6 – 9 hours at their jobs, dealing with their bosses, customers and co-workers. They then drive home, eat dinner and watch more TV. This is a typical pattern for most people.
Your not like most people because you are here reading this awesome article on how to break bad habits and get a jumpstart on your new years resolutions.
In a previous article I talked about not only defining your chief aim, but also setting a goal that excites and inspires you to get out of that comfortable bed on a rainy Sunday morning.
This is actually one of the keys you will need in order to identify the habits that are holding you back from achieving what you want. So if you haven’t read any of the previous articles I’ve written about defining your chief aim and new years resolutions, I encourage you to invest some time reading the articles listed below, then return to this article and continue reading and taking notes.

Let’s say for example that one of your goals is to quit smoking and start exercising to get back into shape.
Some of the negative habits that might be holding you back from achieving this are;
- Waking up in the morning and immediately turning on the TV, watching the news while smoking a cigarette. This is definitely a bad habit.
- Sleeping in late and rushing to get to work in the morning while stopping at a fast food place for a quick breakfast.
Here’s how to turn that around and make it a positive, success-oriented habit.
- If reading isn’t your thing, listen to the audio version of the book or listen to positive uplifting music. A really good idea if you drive to work in traffic.
- Test it our for a week and see if you notice any changes in how you feel (happier, more relaxed, stable or depressed, moody, stressed, anxious)
In my next article I’ll be going into a little more detail on what you can do to start changing your habits as well as additional tips for finding the inspiration within so you never have to worry about becoming a new years resolutions dropout again.
