Break the Cycle of Failed New Year’s Resolutions with New Book, Achieve Anything in Just One Year

This is a spon­sored guest post writ­ten by Jason Har­vey on behalf of Achieve Any­thing In Just One Year. Post pow­ered by Spon­zai.

On Jan­u­ary 1, more than 100 mil­lion Amer­i­cans will make a New Year’s res­o­lu­tion, accord­ing to a Uni­ver­si­ty of Wash­ing­ton sur­vey. By March, how­ev­er, most res­o­lu­tion-mak­ers will already have bro­ken their new­ly mint­ed promis­es. 

In his new book, Achieve Any­thing in Just One Year: Be Inspired Dai­ly to Live Your Dreams and Accom­plish Your Goals (Amaz­ing Life Press, $29.95, http://www.amazinglifepress.com/), Jason Har­vey pro­vides a blue­print for per­son­al suc­cess that can make 2010 the year that res­o­lu­tions become real­i­ty. 

Most res­o­lu­tions fail because peo­ple try to change too fast and accom­plish too much all at once,” said Har­vey, a Cer­ti­fied Life Coach. “My book is about learn­ing how to make small dai­ly changes and be your own per­son­al life coach.”

The most com­mon res­o­lu­tions — to quit smok­ing, lose weight, exer­cise more, spend more qual­i­ty time with fam­i­ly, etc. — are also the eas­i­est to break. “The truth is, we set our­selves up to fail by mak­ing res­o­lu­tions that are sweep­ing and unre­al­is­tic,” explained Har­vey. 

The result­ing cycle of mak­ing and break­ing promis­es is self-defeat­ing — so how can indi­vid­u­als make res­o­lu­tions stick? Achieve Any­thing in Just One Year equips read­ers with the tools to: 

  • Be tru­ly com­mit­ted.Don’t just go through the motions — act like you’re mak­ing a promise to your com­pa­ny, or to your best friend. 
  • Be spe­cif­ic. A res­o­lu­tion like “I want to lose weight” is eas­i­er to ignore than “I want to lose five pounds by March.” 
  • Set a dead­line. A time­frame equals com­mit­ment and helps quan­ti­fy suc­cess. 
  • Avoid over­whelm­ing your­self. You may want to lose weight, quit smok­ing, achieve mod­er­a­tion with mar­ti­nis and cut up your cred­it cards all at once, but let’s get real. Focus on a lim­it­ed set of goals and plan on tak­ing stock mid-year. 
  • Change one thing at a time. Rec­og­nize that change is hard. Wait to achieve one goal before start­ing on the next. 
  • Be real­is­tic. Tak­ing charge of a fit­ness reg­i­men is a real­is­tic goal, while exer­cis­ing sev­en days a week may not be. Don’t set your­self up for dis­ap­point­ment with lofty goals. 

The idea is to take dai­ly action that cre­ates a rip­ple effect in your life,” said Har­vey. “By trans­form­ing your life with small steps, you can stay moti­vat­ed, focused and bal­anced. Best of all, you’ll feel hap­pi­er about pur­su­ing your per­son­al suc­cess.” 

Achieve Any­thing in Just One Year is avail­able to BUY NOW at Amazon.com.
