We are all good at making new goals for a new year, for that is the easy part! But the hard part is, can we keep them or even achieve them?
Here are a few tips to get you started and keep you going for a break out year and a “new you”.
Tip #1: Prioritize your goals.
Select only one specific goal to work on at a time. The goal selected should be specific, realistic, measurable, and attainable within a set period of time.
Tip #2: If you fail to plan you plan to fail.
Tip #3: Create an action plan that involves writing down all the steps you will need to achieve this goal along with the necessary skills and resources. Find a trainer or someone to work with you on skills, set up your practice schedule, read about suggested techniques and vision yourself succeeding.
Tip #4: Daily action is the secret to success. Remember, being consistent with your daily action, no matter how small, is the key to achieving the success you seek. Make daily action a habit!
Tip #5: Set a target date and a time line for completing each step along the way to achieve this goal. (It takes 21 days to establish a new habit.)
Tip #6: Continue to practice and stay on track with your daily plan of action. Associate with people who can help keep you motivated and your dream alive.
Tip#7: Continue working on your goal even during the weekend.
Tip #8: Give yourself a small reward for each time you succeed in reaching the initial steps of your journey.
Tip #9: Whatever you dwell upon grows. Therefore, use visualization frequently to keep your focus to stay on target to your goals.
Tip #10: Don’t delay. Anything worth having is worth working on today!
