The 5 secrets behind a successful start of something new

We are already a few weeks into the new year and for most people this means we’re in the middle of new beginning(s). Better known as new year’s intentions! But do you know how to do that best? How do you successfully kick-off new beginnings and turn them into new habits? Find out my secrets of a good start (it can be anything!) and challenge yourself!

The thing about new beginnings is that they require something else to end.

Tip 1: Visualize your gains
A good motivation to have a successful start of something new is by visualizing what you want to achieve. And not only physical goals, like shining in that bikini body next summer. Also try to imagine how you want to feel. What’s most important for you in creating an optimal lifestyle?

Tip 2: Don’t set the bar too high
When we know what we want to achieve, we get super excited and start making grand plans on how we want to accomplish this. Think about working out every day, eating healthy food only, etc. However, it can work against you getting into it this drastic. It’s good to aim high, but not too high. Rather make realistic goals and plans that you can keep up. Don’t wish for all at once, just do what fits your body and mind.

Tip 3: Know your weakness
And even realistic goals may seem hard to keep up sometimes. Though in most cases we know our weaknesses, so take that into account before starting. Knowing where it may get difficult and try to prevent that can help in the success. For example by not buying those unhealthy snacks and not making excuses for your workouts.

Tip 4: Believe in yourself
Despite things won’t be easy at all times, we’re capable of doing more than we might think! Always believe in your own strength and don’t give up. It doesn’t have to be a complete failure when there have been a few setbacks. Each beginning is a chance and a good result is in your own hands.

Trust the magic of new beginnings!

Tip 5: Be good to you
Most important of all: remember that you’re always good the way you are. You’re worth being loved, no matter what you look or feel like. Therefore you shouldn’t be too hard on yourself. Always love yourself and just enjoy the process.

January is a great time to make a successful start of something new, but make sure to do that because you really want to. Before you know, you’re used to this new lifestyle and don’t even know how else to do it anymore. Don’t be afraid of failure and create that good start all by yourself!

With love,
