A month and some down, ten months and some to go – it’s 2019! We start the year with a great big list of what we want to achieve, plan a strategy, and encourage ourselves and people around us to take up challenges and stay focused on our goals. Yet, it’s no surprise that most resolutions fizzle out within the first few weeks. You ask why? It’s not because we lack conviction, we lack the resoluteness required to follow up on our resolutions!
We ‘ve all been there, done that – slacked on our goals and then given up midway. Here’s how you can make sure this year is different, this year is better!
1. Forgive Yourself and Let Go
Working towards your goals and seeing things through is a process. Don’t be discouraged if you slip up a few times early on. Be kind enough to forgive yourself, let go, and yet determined to get back on track. It’s like starting a diet – you eat healthy for a few days and then give into a cheesy slice of pizza. It’s okay, but you need to get back on track – one slip up doesn’t mean you aren’t good enough to follow it through.
2. Be Proactive
Maybe last year was a little tough on your pocket and you swore to do things differently this year. So live up to your resolve, map out a course of action, and keep track of your progress. Break it down when it comes to your savings plan and monthly budgeting – think of all the different things you could do to support your goal. Plan your expenses, take every chance to clip coupons with SaveMate®, and shop wherever you can with Cash Back. It’s as easy as it sounds, and effective!
3. Smart Leisure
Being better at managing your expenses and meeting your goals doesn’t have to translate to – all work and no play. Exploring the world, pampering yourself, and traveling with a loved one doesn’t have to take a back seat this year (or any year hereafter!).

4. Make or Break a Habit
Successful people know how to make, break, and maintain a habit! Whatever initiative you kick start as part of your resolution this year, make sure it’s not just a short burst of energy that burns out midway. Keep reminding yourself of the goals you set out to achieve and make reviewing your progress a habit. Schedule it in and make some time every month to evaluate and assess your journey. Keep refreshing your memory of not only what you are after, but also “why.”
You can talk and think about your goals all you want, but that’s all it will remain, talk – unless you invest time, effort, and energy into planning your pathway to a successful and accomplished year.
Be sure to remind yourself your goals are for the year and don’t be discouraged if you don’t see immediate results. What’s important is to stay focused and practice discipline when it comes to following up on your resolutions.
