No fluffy intro, no silly little blogging banter. Let’s get straight to me helping you!

How to Kick Ass in Your New Years Resolutions

Don’t pick too many goals. But pick more than one.

Part of the New Me 2017 that I love the most is helping girls dream up bigger and better goals than they already imagined. So when you first started thinking about your resolutions – let me guess – they were simple right? Things like – “I want to lose weight,” or “I want to finally go on that vacation,” or maybe “I want to not be broke.” Well.. try thinking a little bit bigger than that. Think about multiple areas of your life and how you can improve them: your health, your finances, your happiness, your self image, your sense of confidence, etc. Think of like.. a million different amazing things you could probably accomplish when you dream a little bit bigger than just ONE goal. But okay, don’t pick a million. Settle for maybe three or four.

Make sure your goals are emotional.

The only reason we fail at our goals is because there is no emotional drive to achieve them. (Or we lose that emotional drive along the way.) I was looking back on my goals last year and want to know something? I achieved ALL of them. YUP. No joke. EVERY SINGLE ONE. And it wasn’t because I was iron man or some anomaly. I really just got emotionally clear about what I wanted. This is a whole intensive part of the New Me 2017 mini course, but for now, know this:

Ask yourself WHY you want something. Then ask yourself why you deserve that goal. And then follow it up with another final question: What will happen if I DON’T make this change today.

Create goals that are smart and timely.

SMART goals: Specific, ,measurable, achievable, realistic and timely. There. Boom. There’s a whole guide on this that you can grab for free here. But I will leave it at that. Just think about your goal and ask yourself how you can make it all of those things.

Come up with a solid game plan.

Once you get specific about your goals, it’s time to come up with a game plan. What can you do specifically between now and the new year to prep yourself? Come up with a plan and break it down in weekly or monthly increments. Start seeing things on a smaller spectrum rather than the big big picture. Break what you want down into small steps so you can be more successful in the end. Trust me. It works.


Invest in your dream – whatever it is.

This is the part where I tell you that you should check out New Me 2017. Because it’s the best way to invest in your future. Plus it’s only 13 bucks so like.. why the heck not right? And enrollment will close on the 2nd of January 2017. But whatever you want to do – be sure that you put your money where your mouth is – even if your goal is to actually save money. Go out and grab a book on personal finance, or hire an accountant. If you are trying to lose weight, go out and invest in a trainer. The best thing you can do is invest in yourself. It sounds crazy, but it’s truly the first step in convincing yourself, “I am worth this goal, I deserve this goal, and I am going to get this goal.”

Make sense? Good. Don’t forget to check out New Me 2017.
