You don’t necessarily need a New Year to set new goals, however, it is good to reflect on where you were last year, what progress you’ve made, where you want to go, what goals have not come into fruition and what new goals you are setting for yourself. It is also important to keep up leveling and striving towards getting better so as not to lose yourself completely. No matter the type of goal you are setting, whether it’s a New Year’s resolution or not, these tips works for any kind of goal you have set for yourself.
Here are the top five New Year’s resolutions and goals most people set and how to can crush them:
- Health And Fitness. This is the number one goal every single year and so health and fitness is an important one and a couple of years ago that was my most important one.
- More Self Love. I love that more people are taking better care of themselves and they want a better relationship with themselves. I just love that because having self-love definitely has improved all areas of my own life.
- Self Improvement. Self-improvement could mean career, relationships or better self-improvement. You could learn more, read more books, attend seminars or whatever it means for you.
- Less Screen Time. When I first started working out one of the things that I did, which wasn’t necessarily a goal of mine but help in achieving my goal was getting rid of our cable and instead of watching TV, I started working out and so, that hour or two a day that I was watching TV, was more time for my workouts.
- Time or Money Management. People should learn to get better with money whether that’s cutting back on expenses, increasing your income, being more mindful of spending or being more strategic with investments and savings.
Now, let ’s talk about how to crush these goals, It is not fun to set goals and then at the end of the year you look back and didn’t accomplish anything. Whatever your goal is, it doesn’t have to be weight loss or health related it can apply to everyone. Here are some ways to crush whatever goals you have set for yourself.
- Write your goals down and keep it front and center because you need to have that visual constant reminder. It’s actually a proven fact that people who write down their goals are actually more likely to hit them and even better, you can have it somewhere where you have to look at it as a visual representation every day like a vision board. A lot of people write down their goals, but, then they put it in a notebook and never look at it again for the full rest of the year and they forget what they were striving for and sometimes life happens and they get sidetracked so that constant reminder is needed.
- Ask yourself ‘’what can I do daily to help me get to that place where I want to be’’?. It’s not about those big astronomical steps you have to take, but, something daily. They say if you want to change anything in your life, change something you do daily. Tracking your food intake in a food journal is really helpful, tracking your money daily is really helpful and can show you where you’re spending money or food or calories or whatever. Whatever your daily activity is in that area can be really powerful by taking those baby steps every single day
- Believe in yourself. Make sure that you absolutely know that you can do this, remember that you have had a lot of success in different areas of your life and you can do this one too. Constantly remind yourself that you’ve got this, I can do this and I know I can make this happen if I just focus on those daily baby steps.
