Happy New Year 2016

Happy New Year Tru.Workers! It’s 2016 and it is time to begin working on our New Years resolutions. Losing weight, becoming more healthy, making more money, having children, getting married, or marking a goal off the good old bucket list are just some of the possible resolution ideas that can be started in January.

But, is it possible?

See, we all know that not many people achieve their resolutions. The reason for that is that the resolution or goal is too big to keep. You may want a million dollars by December but is that truly achievable?

What about saving $100,000 by December 2016, another $100,000 by 2017 and a third, $100,000 by 2018. Then by 2019 you’ll have $300,000 to invest the money into a business or other investment to make 1 million by 2020, or 2022? This mindset of smaller goals to meet one larger goal is less likely to be forgotten in the middle of 2016 and more likely to be met entirely.

The same goes for anyone wanting to lose 50 pounds this year. Instead of having the number 50 in your head all year round you can instead change your mind to think to lose 1 pound a week for all of 2016 instead. By the second of December you’ll be right where you want to be instead of trying to meet a loss of 50 pounds every month. Thinking like this will train your mind to keep weight off and to change your lifestyle to a more healthy schedule.

What about you? Do you have any goals that may have been to big for 2015 and you are considering trying to acieve it as a resolution for 2016? Let us know at shareit@tru.works
