30-Day Goals and Resolutions Challenge - Day 13

Day 13 Don’t try to change too much at once.  Here is one of our first success tips for getting what you want.

It may seem counterproductive for me to advise you to limit yourself when it comes to setting goals and resolutions, but please hear me out. There are a lot of solid reasons why you may wish to choose only one or two objectives. Goals that are manageable can actually allow you to accomplish far more than ones that cover every single aspect of your life. Prioritizing your pursuits lets you achieve the things that are most important to you. Read on to discover just why it is smart that you don’t try to change too much at once.

Increased Focus

With fewer goals, you have more focus. Developing laser focus allows you to prioritize and to give your limited energy to the things that matter most to you. When you spread yourself too thin, you won’t be able to stay on top of all the tasks required to manage these desires. Sure, you may want to shake up all sorts of things in your life, but it makes more sense to give your attention only to the most important ones. Once those are addressed, you can move onto the next area on your agenda for improvement. It is great to have a mindset of constant personal developing and to always be striving for better. Just be sure not to expect it all at once.

Promote Passion

Passion and desire are strong motivators. When you prioritize your targets and shoot for only those that are most important to you, you are bound to find yourself feeling more passionate about reaching them. Listen to your intuition and rule out any resolutions that do not speak to your soul. Give your energy only to the ones that are most meaningful to your world, and you are bound to be more successful as you let your passion guide you.

Avoid Overwhelm

Let’s face it; there are only so many hours in each day. Taking the time to address each and every little thing you want to change about yourself simply is not realistic. Doing so will set yourself up for burn out, and then you will find yourself accomplishing absolutely nothing. Isn’t it better to choose specific goals that set yourself on fire and make you want to work toward achieving them than to try to fix all the nitpicky little details?

Achieve More

Finally, you will find that you actually achieve more by setting limits on the number of resolutions you make. When you are successful at reaching the most meaningful goals you’ve set for yourself, you will feel motivated to keep going. You will also feel a sense of pride in your accomplishment and will be energized to go further in your self-development.

There you have it, the reasons why it makes sense to avoid trying to change too much at once. Trust me; you will be happier and more successful when you take this route.
