If you want to achieve your New Year’s resolutions this year, you need to establish good habits. Here are some qualities you may need in order to make your goals:

Just do it — regularly

It is easy to say that you’re going to go to the gym each day when you write out your resolutions for the year, but actually doing so is much harder. Your local gym is packed the first week of the year, a little less crowded the next week, and by February, things are back to its typical-sized crowd. Be the type of person who goes to the gym in February and the rest of the months of the year, not just the first week of January.  The same goes if you have a goal to make more sales or whatever it is you are trying to achieve.  Keep at it.

Schedule what you need to do

Speaking of which, if you regularly plan to do certain things and put them into your daily schedule, they are much easier to achieve. For example, if you need to increase your cold calling efforts, mapping out an hour each day to do so could result in great benefits.  Scheduling time to work on creating positive habits like exercising or reading can also help improve your life.

Be more organized

Take some time to organize your home and/or office so that you can actually find things. Sure, it may seem like a daunting task to get everything put in order but you would be surprised at how much being organized, and having a plan, can result in less stress in your life. Just being able to find things easily without frantic, last-minute searches, can help with your quality of life.

Become a good listener

We could solve many problems in our life if we simply listened to each other. And that means really paying attention to what others say and not tapping our toe waiting for the time in which we got to talk. Whether it be at work or at home, life coach experts say you should make an effort to really listen to, and acknowledge what the other person is saying.

Pick yourself up and dust yourself off when you fall

Resilience is what separates the winners from the losers in many things. When you get knocked down, do you stay down, or do you find a way to pick yourself up and start over? Work on facing your fears, and on how to handle rejection and failure.

Develop an attitude of gratitude

Being genuinely grateful for what you have received in life will help you in so many ways. So take some time not just to write down for yourself what you are thankful for, but to thank others who have helped you.  There is an adage about how people may not remember what you said to them, but they will remember how you made them feel. Why not treat others in a way that they will remember you – in a positive way? It could change your life.
