The Time to Change Your Future is Now

We can’t believe it, but 2019 is almost here! The beginning of a new year is an amazing time because it can feel like a new start to accomplishing your dreams. We love the incredible feeling that you’re ready to take on your goals, but we also know that it can be hard to stick to your New Year’s resolution. It may have happened before where you’ve been so excited to start, but you later convinced yourself that it wasn’t the right time. Here at Elevate Salon Institute (ESI), Durham we believe that you shouldn’t wait another year because you can achieve your goals whenever you want. It can often feel like you’ve bitten off more than you can chew, but we think that you can make the time and energy to follow through on the dreams you’ve always wanted to achieve. Here’s how you can make sure you follow through on your New Year’s resolution in 2019!

Manage Your Time

We live in a fast-paced world and with all the new information that’s out there, it can be hard to figure out what tasks you should make your priority. Like we said, making a New Year’s resolution is exciting and the prospect of doing something you want is a great feeling, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed you might be tempted to drop your dreams. It’s important to remember that your New Year’s resolution is for you and it can make your life better. That should be something at the top of your list. We know it’s easier said than done but to make your dreams a reality it’s important that you eliminate distractions that aren’t essential as much as you can. We’re not saying you should just be focused on the big things all the time, but make the time to ensure that your goals come first.

Write Down Your Goals

It happens to the best of us, where we want to do something that we can be proud of, but hold off on it because there’s nothing motivating us to finish it now. It’s up to you to push yourself, which is why writing down your goals can help you feel like they’re something you’re accountable for. When you write out your goals, it can help them seem more real and manageable for you to achieve. It’s easy to come up with New Year’s Resolutions, but without a clear path of how you want to accomplish it, you may end up convincing yourself that next year might be better. Don’t let that happen again and write down what you want to do before 2019 is over!

Get a Support System

You’re the one that is going to make your dreams a reality, but having a support system from friends and family can really make a difference. Your goals can help you follow through on what you want, but your friends and family can give you the support you might need from somewhere else to keep you going. Even better, someone you know might be going after the same New Year’s resolution as you, and you both can encourage one another to finish what you started. Having a good support system can make it seem like your goals are valuable, giving you the confidence to pursue something that is truly worthwhile.

Take the Time to Research

There’s always something new to learn and that includes the things you want to accomplish in the new year. Finding out everything you can about your New Year’s resolution can make it seem more exciting because now you have a clear idea and where you want to be and how to get there. Making a resolution is great, but if you don’t know that much about what that goal means, it can be easy to tell yourself that now isn’t the time and you’ll go after it when you know more about it. As we said, it’s up to you to pursue your dreams and that means taking the time to learn more about what you want to do.

Change Your Mindset

We know that it may be easy to put off pursuing your goals because you think that now is not the right time and it might be better to wait a couple of years. We’re going to go ahead and say that there is no perfect time to go after your dreams. Life is always going to seem like adding another big thing is going to be too much, but you deserve to make the time to do what you want. Whether you’re worried about time or money, there are resources available to help you commit to your New Year’s resolution.
