When it’s apparent that your goals may be a bit lofty, don’t adjust them — adjust your quest…
Congratulations — you’ve made it another year! 2017 now marks our lives, renewing our vision with a new motivation to make our dreams and goals a reality. Yet, this year, instead of setting perhaps-too-high exceptions for losing x amount of weight or getting the big promotion, sit down and take a moment to ponder the steps that will get you there first.
Start small. For example, want to lose weight? Start with a gym membership, choose an exciting trail run, or treat yourself to a new pair of shoes. In creating little goals in pursuit of the big one, you are more likely to succeed!
Break it down. Categorize your goals. Create different achievements for work, health, money and adventure to keep you motivated no matter where life takes you!
Reward yourself. It is not always going to be easy, so don’t be too hard on yourself. Treat yourself when you can, cheer yourself on. No one is a better motivator than YOU.
Whatever your goals you’ve curated for the new year, just remember to set yourself up for success. Life has enough hiccups to not help yourself along the way!
