Every time a new year rolls around, there are millions of people who make resolutions, or set new goals they want to meet. The problem with this is that within weeks, many of them have already given up on those goals. Coming up with a resolution is one thing, but ensuring that it plays out is completely another. The good news is that there are things that you can do to help improve your success rate and keep you focused on achieving those new goals.

“There are some people who will no longer even make New Year’s resolutions because they just know they won’t stick to them,” says Catherine “Katia” Rudnick, owner and jewelry designer at Katia Designs. “Rather than take that approach, go the opposite direction. Get serious about what you need to do in order to make that goal a reality.”

Katia Designs is no stranger to helping people with their goals all year long. The line of Bohemian chic jewelry it offers focuses on providing a message on each necklace that resonates with the wearer. The messages are empowerment reminders that help keep people on track with their goals and dreams. Some of the messages in the lineup include “anything is possible,” “fearless,” “I am strong,” and “just breathe.” They help keep the wearer mindful of the things they are working on in their personal lives.

Here are some tips to help you stick to your New Year’s resolutions:

• Have goals. Some people fear setting goals because they don’t want to be let down if they don’t achieve them. The truth, however, is that you will have a higher success rate if you do set goals. A study published in the December 2020 issue of the journal PLoS One finds that those with approach-oriented goals are significantly more successful. Get serious about what your goals are and determine the steps you need to take to make them happen.

• Opt for reminders. Having small reminders within view can help keep you motivated and empower you to keep going. This is one of the reasons so many people love the jewelry from Katia Designs, because it gives them a beautiful reminder and sense of encouragement throughout the day.

• Be kind to yourself. People tend to treat others working toward a goal kinder than they treat themselves. Make the commitment to be nice to yourself as you work to achieve your goals. Ask yourself how you would speak to a friend regarding their goals, and then do the same for yourself.

• Don’t give up. Even if you have a setback, it doesn’t mean it’s time to give up. Just pick yourself back up and keep going, reminding yourself of what the goal is. One of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to resolutions is to throw it all away if they make a mistake. Instead, recognize the mistake and move forward toward your goals.

• Share your intentions. Let the universe know about your goals and resolutions, so that the Laws of Attraction can help you achieve success. You can do this through daily positive affirmations, writing your goals down, sharing them with others, and reminding yourself of what they are daily.

• Watch the attitude. The way you feel about the goals and your ability to achieve them will have an impact. It’s important to stay positive and to believe that you can do what it is that you chose for your resolution. If you don’t believe you can do it, then you probably won’t, so it’s important to believe in yourself and keep a good attitude throughout the journey.

“We all have the ability to achieve what we set our mind to, but sometimes we forget that,” added Rudnick. “My line of jewelry helps people remember how powerful and worth it they really are. This year, make it happen, but take the steps that will help you get there.”

Katia Designs specializes in making jewelry that resonates and empowers. A necklace from the collection makes an ideal gift, giving you the ability to choose elements that the person will like. The various elements include crystals, gemstones, and seashells, and each necklace comes with an uplifting message that will resonate with the wearer. The messages on the necklaces focus on empowerment, reminding the person of their goals, dreams, and aspirations.
