From our Gold International Marketing Director – Mark and Tammy Smith
First of all, Happy New Year! 2013 was an unbelievable year for Tammy and I. We look forward to an even better 2014 and we can’t wait to see what is in store for us and Nerium!
With that being said, the new year brings a new opportunity to start over with a blank slate and new goals. I’m sure you have spent time thinking about what resolutions you are going to make this year and how you will reach your goals. Now that we are a week into 2014, I wanted to give you a few tips to successfully achieve your resolutions and turn them into reality.
1. Be realistic. One of the biggest reasons people continually fail in achieving their resolutions is because the goal is unrealistic. Set goals that are possible within a given time frame. The year is 52 weeks long, don’t expect to achieve all your resolutions in a month. This is a marathon, not a sprint.
2. Make a plan. You would never walk into a meeting with your boss unprepared about a presentation you are about to make, so why would you make personal goals without preparing? Whatever your resolution is, make a road map on how you will achieve it. Are you trying to spend more time with your loved ones? Block time out each week in your calendar that you will dedicate to being with your loved ones much like you would schedule a meeting. All goals need a plan to succeed.
3. Why are you making this resolution? Determine what the motivation for this resolution. Is it for self-improvement? For better health? Being aware of your motivates make you more likely to succeed.
4. Write it down. Writing down your goals and placing them in a place where you can see them daily will serve as motivation. When you are reminded what the end goal is, it is easier to stay on track.
5. Have a support system. As much as people think they can do things on their own, even the smallest task needs some support sometimes. Identify who your support system is and will push you to reach your goal. This could be your family, coworkers, friends or supervisor.
6. Bumps along the way. There will be roadblocks in achieving your resolutions. Before they happen, determine how you will handle them to get back on track. Identifying things that could damper your resolutions makes you better prepared for when they occur.
I challenge you to make 2014 the best year ever!
This is a very personal message to our team where we share the full journey of what it takes to become successful. We are very transparent and don’t hold anything back so be ready! This is a full 70 minute training session so get some popcorn and enjoy. – Mark and Tammy
