Get your mind set and the rest will follow

Get your mind set and the rest will follow

As we said goodbye to 2022, many of us looked forward to a fresh start in 2023. We made plans and resolutions for new growth and improvement.

As we enter into the end of the first quarter of the year, it’s time to ask yourself, “Am I on track with my business and personal goals?” For some of you, that question may stop you dead in your tracks, especially if you’re behind on where you should be with your objectives.

If you are not where you should be, don’t worry you are not alone. According to U.S. News, approximately 80% of resolutions fail by the second week of February. The New York Post reported that one in five Americans were ashamed to admit they failed on the goal they had set for themselves.

What can you do to get on track? Get your head in the game. The gym or your diet won’t help your body unless your mind is dedicated. “Once your mindset changes, everything on the outside will change along with it.” Steve Maraboli

Change your mindset and be disciplined. Start off slow. You can reach your goals by just doing one small thing at a time. If one of your goals for the year is to become more organized, take five minutes of downtime during the day to organize and throw away old items. This could be straightening files on your computer or phone, cleaning out the medicine cabinet or throwing out spoiled food from the refrigerator. Five minutes a day is all it takes to start, and to give you an amazing sense of accomplishment.

Perhaps your goal pertains to good health? Eat one healthy meal a day. Set aside ten minutes for some kind of daily exercise. Maybe you have a goal to improve your living space? Get the ball rolling and take five minutes to schedule that appointment with a local home improvement contractor. You’ll be amazed at how great it will feel to take even small steps toward what you want out of life for you and your family.

March is considered a good luck month. Research shows children born in March and April are more likely to become CEO’s. Despite the fact that St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated this month, you simply cannot rely on the “luck of the Irish” (even if you are Irish) to help you succeed. You’ve got to work at it! You don’t want to find yourself at the end of June facing the hard realization that it may be too late to accomplish what you had planned…do you?

Keep going. Don’t give up. Stay positive. You’ve got this.
