Monthly Motivational Message - January

The new year is here.

It's time to set a resolution.

Perhaps you want to lose weight, save more money, or finally stick to previous years' resolutions. Setting a resolution with a "new year, new me" attitude feels great.

 

Well, let's get real. Setting is easy but sticking is hard.

Life happens, things change suddenly, and you lose motivation. In only a couple of months, most of us abandon our resolutions.

It's not ideal, is it? It's okay. Nothing's perfect anyway.

When you start working towards a goal, you will face many setbacks on your way. Expect that you will get distracted and feel discouraged at times. You will make mistakes. It's normal.

After all, there's a reason they say "to err is human".

Amidst all the ups and downs in life, you need your support the most. You need self-compassion to figure out better solutions and get back on track.

Aiming for perfection will only make things harder for you.

 

Embrace imperfection.

 

Throughout the month, each time you have a self-critical thought, try to shift the tone of your thought to positive and change your perspective to acknowledge the things that are going well.

Be kind to yourself as you navigate the complexities of life.

 

Instead of constantly criticizing yourself for your bad decisions, or giving in to your doubts (e.g., "I'm not good enough to do this" and "it'll never get better"), train your mind to focus on the things that you can improve using the lessons you've learned.

 

Don't lose hope when things take longer than you would like.

By keeping your expectations realistic, you'll be better able to find new ways to follow through on your goals.
