The beginning of a new year can awake various feelings and attitudes about our past and future. It is that moment when most of us will be fascinated by the promise of a more exceptional year. This new year determinate us to put together a list of challenges and opportunities to have a more organized time.
The new year – a motivating landmark full of challenges and opportunities
Desires and goals can be more motivating if we set them at the beginning of the year, which is an essential mark for most people.
Transformation starts with a thought, marked by a desire, or even something stronger, a source of inspiration.
What if we are not ready for change at the beginning of the year?
For those who are not ready for change as of January 1st, there are plenty of options. You can start on another date, such as the beginning of a new week, a new month, the start of a new season or your birthday, and you can get the same result.
Give up on your goals
The studies of John Norcross, who studied the process of setting goals and considering them since the 1980s, shows that only 75% of the promises we make hang from the first week, only 64% are still standing at the end of the month, and 46% at the end of the first six months. These statistics prove one thing: change is difficult but possible!

- Choose and act
- Ask for help from a specialist in psychotherapy
Therefore, a new year is our unique chance to take action. Thus, taking into account the tips presented above, you can start acting by setting your attitude. The new year is your chance for change, take advantage of it, don’t waste it!
