Setting goals

Posted on January 14, 2015

How is your progress going on your New Year’s resolutions? Or, do you still need to make them?

Believe it or not, simply making a resolution increases your chances of making improvements. You are ten times more likely to improve by making a New Year’s resolution compared to those who don’t make a resolution—even if they’re equally as motivated!

When you decide what your goals will be, keep these tips in mind:

  • Make sure your goals are realistic.
  • Have an action plan.
  • Have a support system (family, friends, others with the same goal).
  • Find the time to carry out your goals.

You will have barriers that will make it difficult to keep your resolutions. You’ll also have motivators to help you. Learn how to overcome the barriers and strengthen the motivators so you can reach your goals.

Remember, you’ve already started if you’ve simply made a resolution. Keep the momentum going!
