It’s coming close to the end of January and we all know someone with their new goals/resolutions that may be falling behind. Here are a few tips to help stick to it!
- Write it down and put it everywhere.
Keeping a daily reminder/list of your new goals for this year will help you remember what you want to accomplish. If this list is written everywhere you could possibly think of; it can make it difficult to drift away. Keep the list close, and make sure you write it in stone. The daily reminder on the refrigerator, mirror or in the car will help you stay in track!
2. Tell everyone and find an accountability partner
Along with keeping the list everywhere, an accountability partner is great to have. An accountability partner should be around when you need him or her for support, encouragement and a little reinforcement. Make sure that you can trust this person and they will be sure to stick to their word!
3. Develop a 90 Day Timeline.
Creating a 90 plan will help you stick to your goals! Staying organized and on track with the timeline, if done right, can help promote a healthy goal setting plan. 90 days can go by fast but will surely make a difference if goals are done in a timely manner. This can also help you to start small and work your way up. Begin with the first 90 days on a huge goal (that you have broken down) and work your way up.
4. Reward yourself.
Reward yourself for “good behavior” and discipline yourself for “bad behavior”. If you commit to the first 90 days then buy yourself a new pair of shoes! If you are not fully committed or may happen to derail from your original plan, fall back on the TV or from whatever is holding you back. –don’t forget to call your accountability partner!
5. Motivate Yourself
Do you have a goal to stay fit this year? If so motivate yourself and go buy a new pair of sneakers/yoga pants! Look cute and workout at the same time. What better motivation then a new outfit.
6. Stay Positive
Having the right attitude will truly get you far. It’s like a flat tire, you won’t get far if it is not changed! Stay around the people with the attitudes that are positive and uplifting.
7. Vision Board
If you’ve seen the last post, a vision board is a great tool for everyone. No matter your age, goals or gender, a vision board will significantly benefit you. It will help you stay committed, focused, organized and encourage you.
8. Don’t beat yourself up
Accomplishing your goals is not an easy task. Remember that practice makes habit. There WILL be people who may be discouraging along the way or who will just not even care about your well-being. DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP ABOUT IT. You have to acknowledge your mistakes that you may make embrace it and move forward. Everything will not go as planned but remember things happen for a reason! Keep pushing and do what you have to do….by any means necessary.
Be Blessed, Be Inspired, and Be Powerful
