Millions of people made New Year’s resolutions for 2017 — are you one of them? If so, your job now is to find ways to keep your resolutions this year. Almost one-half of Americans make resolutions each year, but only eight percent are successful. Below are tips on how you can be one of the small percentages of Americans that keep their resolutions for 2017.

Don’t Stop If You Slip

It is not the fact that you slip that is important. It is the fact that you don’t stop trying.  Don’t let minor setbacks or failures be an excuse for giving up on your New Year’s resolutions. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back on track.

Make Specific Goals

If you make a resolution to “save money,” you will have a tougher time keeping your resolution than if you make a resolution to save 100 dollars. By having a specific goal, you can plan detailed steps to achieve that goal. When a goal is general, it is much more difficult to plan a winning strategy to reach that goal.

Set Mini-Goals to Measure Success

Again, if you say, “I am going to add $1,200 to my savings this year,” you are more likely to give up before you reach your goal. However, if you set up a way to measure your progress, such as $100 per month, you can see yourself steadily making progress. Knowing you are making progress gives you the incentive to keep going when you face challenges throughout the year.

Schedule Time to Keep Your Resolution

If you resolve to lose weight, read more books, garden, or learn how to play the piano, it will be impossible for you to keep your resolution if you don’t make time in your schedule. Schedule time to work out, practice, or take lessons to reach your goals. When you schedule regular “appointments” for yourself, you will find it much easier to keep your resolutions.

Write It Down and Share It

Put your resolutions in writing and post them somewhere you can see them each day. For example, write your resolution on a notecard and place the card on the bathroom mirror where you will see it at least twice a day. In addition, share your resolution with your family and friends. Sharing your resolution with others accomplishes two goals. Your family and friends can hold you accountable by asking how you are doing and they can give you support and cheer you on as you work to keep your resolutions.

Be Patient

As you work to meet your goals in 2017, be patient. Anything worth accomplishing takes time. You may see rapid gains, but you may also experience painfully slow phases. To make lasting change, you must invest not only your effort but your time.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.
