Episode 386: Why New Year’s Resolutions Don’t Work!

mindset Jan 04, 2024

Can you believe it’s already the start of 2024? This marks 4 fantastic years of weekly conversations I've had with incredibly inspiring people who are proof that our second half can be so much more rewarding than our first if we simply listen to our heart and share our wisdom from our lived experiences.

I’m beyond thrilled and grateful to embark on another trip around the sun with you and to kick it off, I’m diving deep into the concept of New Year's resolutions — and why I got bothered enough by a couple of social media posts I saw that I wanted to share my thoughts with you. 

Let’s set the record straight: Resolutions aren’t merely wishful thinking; they’re about setting purposeful goals and crafting actionable plans. I want to challenge the negative bias around resolutions by breaking down the key components necessary for effective goal-setting. We’ll talk specificity, the importance of tracking progress, and the magic of starting small to build sustainable habits.

What's on my radar for 2024? I want to focus on 3 particular areas: health, creativity, and reading.

I share why I’ve chosen these, and I urge you to come up with your own why for your resolutions because that’s all that matters and it’s what will keep you purpose-driven and unwavering in your commitment to them. No one else’s why should influence YOUR heart-centered goals which is what a resolution should be all about - what your heart wants!

Be inspired by this episode to curate goals tailored to the things that bring you joy and you won't give up on by February, which is my hope for you, so you'll have your best year yet! 

Lock arms with me and let’s commit to making 2024 a year of growth, transformation, and sparking the best versions of ourselves!
