It's the beginning of the year and everyone is talking about resolutions.  Whether you believe in making resolutions or not, this can be a great opportunity to think about your goals, your direction in life, and how fulfilled you feel.  There is real power in knowing that YOU have a big role in making your life one worth living.  More often than not, people make unrealistic goals and feel discouraged by the end of the year.  So before you start writing your resolutions down, we have a few tips on how to keep them this year.

Set SMART goals

Setting goals with this method is an easy way to make sure that your goals are attainable.
  • S - specific, significant
  • M - measurable, meaningful, motivational
  • A - attainable, achievable, acceptable, action-oriented
  • R - realistic, relevant, reasonable, rewarding, results-oriented
  • T - time-based, time-bound, timely, tangible, trackable

Write it down

Make a list and place it in a spot where you can see it often.  This will remind you of what you need to achieve.

Differentiate want from need 

Stick to realistic goals that you really want.  Ask yourself why this goal is important to you - your explanation should be based on what you want not what you’re supposed to want.  If you're not excited about your goals, it'll be much harder to make it happen.

Take baby steps

Know that every goal cannot be achieved overnight.  Start small and make mini goals for each big one.  For example, if you want to lose weight, set a goal to lose 5 pounds every month and eventually you'll hit your ultimate goal of losing 20 pounds.

Share and celebrate milestones

Once you have your mini goals in place, celebrate when you reach each goal!  Having a reward for each milestone will motivate you even more.

Surround yourself with support

Having people around you who believe you can make all the difference.  If you have a support system who encourages you and supports you unconditionally, you'll be more likely to believe in yourself and achieve those goals.  Plus, if you share your resolutions with others it can create a system of shared accountability.

Don't beat yourself up

Instead of focusing on failure, focus on personal growth and be open to changing your priorities.  Sometimes it's about the journey of getting there.
