Do you ever feel like every New Year’s Resolution that you make ends up playing out more like wishful thinking rather than a realistic achievable goal? Well, maybe it’s time to change the way you go about setting goals and achieving them. Here is how:
First off, you must create a clear formulated plan on how to reach your new goals. This plan should contain small easily achievable steps. Keep in mind that it’s the end result that is most important and trying to achieve a new goal is most likely not going to happen over night. Whether your resolution is to loose weight, make more time for your family, quite smoking, or finish school, it all takes a life style change that must happen in steps.
Second off, once you have thought out a plan for your new resolution, you should then put it all down on paper. Write down each step you need to take and give yourself a certain amount of time to achieve that step. If you attempt to reach your goals in small steps, you will be more likely to have a positive result.
Last, in order to stay motivated you should try keeping a journal. At the end of each day you should write down a few sentences on any struggles or achievements you may have dealt with on that particular day. This journal will help you to stay focused and keep motivated throughout your journey. Once you successfully complete your goal, the journal will be a great reward to have, as it will show all of your hard work.
