There are many ways to stay motivated to achieve your goals. As they say, where there is a will, there is a way! It is all about how you can motivate yourself and stay disciplined.
So many people make yearly goals and resolutions at the beginning of the year but midway they fail miserably in achieving them.
You need a mindset change to stay motivated and focused on getting to the finish line.
We have a few exceptional ways you can stay motivated to achieve your goals today!
Not goals! Just improvements
Whether it is changing our looks or adapting to new environments, we are always changing, adapting and growing! Many people call them resolutions, the word itself outs so much pressure but all it is supposed to be realizing and improving on ourselves. Resolution means strong decision and being resolute. So instead of saying “new year, new me” just say a brand new year, brand new improvements!
Simplicity is the best
Remember: Less is more! Many people have pages and pages of notes on how to improve themselves this year. Just focus on the things that you really want to change and be realistic about it!
It is really important to surround yourself with support. Take a girlfriend when you workout, take them for the haircut. Have your close friends or family help you stay on track and clean up. Whoever is your accountability partner, make sure they have good intentions for your and are fully supporting you!
Sometimes we make improvements based on the failures we had last year. We encourage you to let go of last year and go easy on yourself with your past! Set goals for things that you want to achieve and keep it simple and follow the SMART principle.
Now that you know what you are to stay motivated, all you have to do next is make an action plan on how to to do it. We suggest you put it up on your calendar and send yourself reminders. Or you can make ask your accountability buddy to give you a call once every day or week and remind you to stick to your goals. It may get annoying. Haha! But it works! So the best thing to do is to just do it!
