It’s 2017, You Haven’t Done A Thing Yet

It’s 2017 and you haven’t done a thing yet. What are you waiting on? A lot of people find themselves a couple of days into the new year and you’re still stuck in your previous ways. Lets try to pinpoint what’s exactly holding you  back and make a move to get you in the right direction:

  1. You’re not sure what changes you really want to make.
    • If you don’t know where you want to go, how will you get there? Take a moment to decide if you really want to make real life changes, or if your just following the phrase, ” New Year New Me.”
    • If you don’t actually have a goal, you will never achieve it. Figure it out first, then decide on your steps to success. happygirl2017
  2. You’re uninspired.
    • Take a small vacation, clear your mind.
    • How can you make a change when your vision is blurry? You may need a quick change of scenery to get those creative juices flowing.
    • Inspiration is everywhere, you just have to be open and look.
  3. You’re afraid.
    • It’s ok to be afraid of change.
    • Take a deep breath and actually understand how better your life will be once you take that first step to fulfilling your life goals. Yes, it may make you uncomfortable, but growth can not occur without hard work and sacrifice.
    • Sometimes being afraid is the fuel you need to face your fears and starting moving towards your new life.
  4. You don’t have a stong support system.
    • It’s ok to not have any support from family or friends, its your dream.
    • You have to dig deep with in yourself and support your own changes in life.
    • Gather the strength you used to come up with the changes and believe you are enough to make sure you have control over your own life and goals. It will be happynewyear2017achieved if you work hard and believe.
  5. You have set an unrealistic goal for yourself.
    • Come down a notch if  you have to with your changes, nothing happens over night.
    • You want to make sure if the goal is big, you  have little goals as well to paint the big picture in the end.
    • I want you to be human and feel accomplished when you complete a task, so take it a little easy on yourself, you’ll get there.

Are Your 2015 New Year Resolutions Cliche?

Happy New Year From Hopoffthis.Com! But, are your 2015 New Year Resolutions cliché? When you hear the word ” Cliche” 9 times out of ten people never want to put themselves in that category, but trust and believe its possible.  Just so we’re all on the same page here,

2015 new year

” Cliche- a phrase or opinion that is overused and betrays a lack of original thought.”

So, are you already questioning what you’ve promised to change or improve for the new year?

Let’s go over a few that are highly overused and abused new year resolutions.

1. I will work out/ lose weight.

Make sure your actually trying to lose weight, not mentally preparing to say it again in 2016. Are you going to change your eating habits? What about this phrase excites you to get up and do something for yourself?

2. I’m going to travel the world this year.

Traveling is so expensive, including passports, tickets, and anything else you need to do it. Has this been your go to phrase? When is the last time you’ve even been 5 hours away from home. If your going to travel, it’s ok to start small and progress.

3. I wanna change the way I dress!

You could have done that yesterday. Fashion does not mean empty your pockets for the most expensive thing you can find. People use this as a new years resolution to feel better. You are dressing the way you want, right now. Why wait till the new year, to only dress the same in 2 days? Go thrifting, actually go purchase something you would never wear and try it out.

4. I’m cutting the drama out of my life this year.

Stop right there. Even mentioning this out loud means you are full of drama yourself. At any point in time you have the power to change what you allow. Here you are again stating what you’re gonna do this year with certain people. You will have this same conversation, in 2016, with the same people if you wait on a new year to change these habits.

Bottom line people, change doesn’t start because of a new year. Do what you love, embrace your faults and work towards positivity and changing them. You don’t have to feel empty because you didn’t run on the treadmill the first of the year. It’s OK. Pick a day to start and just go. Your results will give you satisfaction in the end but you actually have to start somewhere.

I hope you guys have a wonderful beginning, even if you don’t start today.

Come back to Hopoffthis.Com, we have a new years resolution to stick to this year as well!!
