7 Tips for Setting (and achieving!) New Years Resolutions (1)

Check out these New Years Resolution Statistics:Did you know that 95% of the people who set New Year’s Resolutions never follow through? CRAZY, right?!

The reason is that most people don’t understand the process of how to produce lasting results—and they never take the first steps.

I shared some of my top tips on my team’s weekly training call on how to set BHAGs (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals), thencreating an actual action plan to go out and crush those goals.

The following process will walk you through how to get started and create the momentum that will drive you to follow through.

By doing it, you will gain clarity about where you’ve been, where you are now, and where you want to go!! It will also help you create a simple plan to set up your new year so that it truly compels, excites, and drives you! You’ll wake up every morning EXCITED to get to work on those BHAGs!!

Repeat after me: 2016 is my year!

So go through the process outlined below. But do me a favor, don’t just read this blog post passively. I want you to PARTICIPATE! Grab a pen and a sheet of paper, and DO the work!!

You won’t achieve your dreams by just sitting there 😉So let’s make BIG things happen!!

New Years Resolutions Tips #1:Get Clear

  • What did you love in the last 12 months?
  • What were some of your magic moments?
  • What did you accomplish in the last 12 months?
  • What are some of the things from the last 12 months that you want to duplicate/improve upon in 2016?
  • What did you hate in the last 12 months?
  • What was challenging this past year?
  • What do you not want to have happen again?
  • What did you learn by going through these experiences?
  • What decisions did you make in the last 12 months that were empowering for you?
  • What were some of the most important decisions of this year for you?
  • What decisions might you make next year as a results?


New Years Resolutions Tips#2:Get Certain

Write down anything inyour life that was once merely just a goal dream or desire. What are some of the big and little things that at one time seemed extremely difficult or impossible to achieve or acquire? Circle the two or three items on your list that seemed the most difficult or impossible to achieve

For the two or three items you circled, write down the steps you went through to turn each one of them into reality. You may not have done it consciously, but it’s likely something stimulated you to want them so much so that it may have become a magnificent obsession for you.

  • Then, did you focus on it continuously?
  • Put a lot of emotional charge into it? Then what?
  • Did you actually create a plan?
  • What were the steps you went through?


New Years Resolutions Tips#3: Get Excited!

Now that you are clear about where you’ve been, and you have certainty about your ability to make your goals and dreams real, it’s time to decide where you want to go…

1. In a peak state write down every goal you think you’d like to accomplish in your lifetime.

Be sure to include ANYTHING you want to do, be, share, create, have, give. Include financial goals, personal development goals, physical goals, relationship goals, contribution goals — anything you’d like to learn, enjoy,or do. No matter how silly or outrageous it may seem, this is your chance to dream without limits. Be sure to keep your pen moving as fast as possible!

When you are finished, go through your list and next to each item, write down the number of years you want it to take (or believe it will take) to achieve your goal (write 1 year, 3 years, over 3 years)

New Years Resolutions Tips#4: Get Focused

Out of your list of goals (from step 3), circle your one-year goals. Out of your entire list, what do you want most?

What are the goals that if you could achieve them this year that would get you up early and keep you up late with excitement?

New Years Resolutions Tips#5: Get Committed

For each of your one-year goals, write a paragraph about why they are ‘musts’ for you to achieve them.

What are the reasons you absolutely will achieve this no matter what? Remember, reasons come first, answers come second! Why do you want to do this?

What are some of the things that you may need to do that you don’t want to do in order to achieve these goals?

If you have enough passion, you can get yourself to do anything, but first you must be certain about what “anything” might entail. Let’s look the tiger in the eye!

New Years Resolutions Tips#6: Get Momentum

NEVER leave the site of setting a goal without taking some action toward its attainment. You must take immediate action.

Decide NOW:Decide now: What is one small thing that you will do immediately toward achieving one of your goals

  • (e.g., making a phone call, booking a meeting, getting on the internet to research, signing up for a seminar, getting a coach, etc.)?

What is one big thing that you resolve to do immediately to achieve this goal (e.g., making a decision, throwing out all the unhealthy food in your house right now, giving something away, etc.)?

New Years Resolutions Tips#7: Get Smart

To make sure you follow through, you have to get smart and measure yourself consistently. Remember,most people set some New Year’s goals, have no plan or direction, take no action, and then measure again next New Year’s! The more you measure something the better it gets. You must resolve now to measure your specific progress daily, or at least weekly.

  • CreateRPM (Rapid Planning Method) forgoal (Here are some more resources that I provide to my team to create an RPM)


1. Ensure your one-year goals are absolutely what you MUST achieve in the next year.

2. Take your one year goals and chunk them down into 3, 6, 9, 12-month goals.

3. Prioritize your goals into the order you want to achieve them.

4. Create an R.P.M plan for each of your goals and remember to apply S.M.A.R.T to your RESULT.

5. VERY IMPORTANT: Commit and Schedule your M.A.P into your year planner

6. Set up a way to TRACK and MEASURE your progress.

7. CELEBRATE: Congratulations you now a one-year plan that’s all about TAKING ACTION.

My Example of an RPM for achieving Superstar Diamond in my Coaching Business:

7 steps for setting and achieving your new years resolutions

RPM Notes:

  • Remember, the M.A.P is things you COULD do.It is a brainstorming list; do not analyse anything in this column.

  • The RESULT needs to be circled in a bright color so your eye is always drawn to it.Remember, it’s the target, bull’s eye.Modify the verbiage to suit you.

  • The PURPOSE needs to be strong.It should move you, it must juice you.Ask yourself questions like how will it make me feel; who will I become in the process; what doors will this open up for me and others, etc.

  • Once you have modified the R.P.M as you see fit, print it and place it somewhere you can review it on a regular basis.
