You can start off the New Year on the right foot by setting your goals in advance.
Many people find that establishing goals is more beneficial than setting resolutions.
Try the following simple starters to make sure that each goal you set is achievable and memorable and encompasses every aspect of your life:
Goals Rather Than Resolutions: By their very nature, goals tend to be positive and achievement oriented, but it’s still possible to take it a step further. Write down each goal and the benefit to be derived from reaching that goal. Keep it in a visible place as a constant reminder.
Round It Out: A healthy body leads to a healthy mind, but both are necessary for maximum performance. Take time to select at least one goal for your body, mind, spirit, finances and social life, and then share your goals with others. Don’t focus on the negative. Emphasize the positive instead. You’ll be surprised to learn how quickly each builds upon the success of the other and how willing others are to help you reach your goals once they know about them.
Reward Yourself: Make sure that you reward the small stepping stones of success along the way. Each goal should consist of smaller steps that are significant enough to garner recognition while remaining within reach for the allotted time. If you keep it up, it won’t be long before you begin to truly enjoy a New Year that transforms all your wishes into reality.
