Six Sexy Strategies to Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

Okay, so maybe "sexy" isn't the exact right word, but if I got your attention, then we're at least in the same room.  Here are the strategies that absolutely will help you achieve your New Year's resolutions!

1. DECIDE WHAT you want and make it SRPP (Specific, Realistic, Public & Positive) Bonus: Add a "by when".  And as an added bonus – VISUALIZE what it will look like when you achieve it!!
2. DEFINE WHY you want it (make it REAAAALLLLLY important)
3. DECLARE your commitment to achieve it (with a passion and a belief that you CAN achieve it)
4. DEVELOP your game plan (what will you do on a daily basis)
5. DETERMINE your coping strategies when the going gets tough (and it will)
6. DANCE in celebration with each and every success – however small  (sorry, I had to reach a little for that last "D")

And HERE'S an example of those steps in action:

My New Year's Resolution, by motivational speaker Linda Larsen (very public, you might notice)

I.  I WILL get back to my 128 pound, lean, healthy, vibrant self – by March 31, 2013 – and happily maintain it. (Images of Happy Lean Linda dancing in my head)
2. I want this BECAUSE it will give me better health, more energy and more happiness…  I will look and feel GREAT!  I will live longer and never be a burden on someone I love who ends up having to "take care of me." My insurance and healthcare costs will be reduced.  My husband won't have to be sad and frustrated because I feel miserable all the time.  He will think I am one hot mama – because I WILL be!! 
3. I am totally, unequivocally and PASSIONATELY committed to achieve this and KNOW absolutely that it is a realistic resolution and that I CAN achieve it!!!
4.  Game plan

  • Eat 5 servings of fruits and veggies every day
  • Work out at least 4 times per week – 45 minutes each time
  • Eliminate sugar 
  • Start each day visualizing my success for THAT day
  • Close each day applauding myself for my success
  • Keep a journal to chart my success

5. Coping Strategies

  • Remove all bad food from house
  • Practice "stop" technique for when I am tempted to go off track
  • Get an "accountability buddy" to help me stay on track

6. Yay me!   Get down with my bad self!  I rock!  I created my six step sexy plan to achieve my New Year's Resolution!!

Hey! Why not print this out, fill in YOUR goal and hang it up right where you can see it every day!!

  1. Awesome post Linda! I can't wait to share it. And I happen to think that reaching your dreams is SEXY!

  2. Leave it to you, you wonderful motivational speaker friend, to help me define even MY simple resolutions.  With this "D" list I KNOW we'll be successful!!

  3. Awesome Linda!  This is great and I applaud you!  However, you wrote you wanted to reach this goal by 2011…does this mean you posted what you've already done?  You know like writing your to-do list of things you've already done just so you could cross things off? :)  I think you're pretty hot as is!

  4. Linda, what a Delightful List! I personally think it's sexy, too. I think I'll just cut and paste your list into my goal list! However, I'll have to change the goal weight and eliminate surgar as it wouldn't be realistic for this motivational speaker! Looking forward to seeing less of us the next time we're together.
