One of the biggest reasons so many of us hold disdain for New Year’s resolutions or abandon our original goals come February is because we tend to pick goals that aren’t meaningful to us.
According to Rachel Cole, a coach, consultant and retreat hostess, “Oftentimes we get swept up in popular resolution group-think: Lose weight! Find more life balance! Save enough to buy those designer shoes!”
So what does it mean to set resolutions that stay true to you? “Authentic resolutions reflect our values,” Cole said. “Our values are our unique thumbprints for fulfillment and they are perfect guides for setting authentic resolutions.”
