New Year, New "Achievable" Goals

Updated: Nov 6, 2019


The start of a new year is the perfect time to create new habits and set achievable goals to insure long term success.

I’m a firm believe Make a daily goal that you can ABSOLUTELY commit to, something you KNOW you can do without killing yourself. If your daily goals are not realistic you will lose steam quick! Trust me I am the poster child for this!

BUT… You’ve also gotta have achievable and realistic starting goals. So many people get overwhelmed by the big goal because they look at their current life, and think; there’s no way I can make that happen!

But the truth is, you can. Regardless of your goal, no matter how “insane” it is, you CAN achieve it.

How?

By starting small. Make a daily goal that you can ABSOLUTELY commit to, something you KNOW you can do without killing yourself. If you’re daily goals are not realistic you will lose steam quick! Trust me I am the poster child for this!

My advice to you, if you have a goal for 2019 is to:

  1. Decide you’re ready to make a change and go after your goals. DECIDE that you will not stop until they are realized. Period. Nothing will ever happen until you’ve made that concrete decision, the one that has no escape route, no possibility for failure.

  2. Believe it is possible. Even if you don’t fully believe it yet, put an ABSOLUTE STOP to any negative talk or doubt. Only speak positivity into your future. Speak hope into your future.

  3. Set realistic goals. What I mean by this is, don’t start-out saying; “I’m gonna stop eating everything bad, stop drinking and workout 7 days a week.” That’s not realistic and is a recipe for disappointment and defeat. It’s not something you can sustain over the long haul.

A great example of a realistic daily goal is to just be active for 20 minutes a day. That’s the goal I set for myself this year. Normally I go hard in January, start with all these big promises, ones I know from the start, I will not keep. So this year I set one that I KNOW I can actually do every single day.

This removes guilt and self-judgment from the equation. Before, I’d beat myself up all day long about how I should do better. How I should work out, or eat a certain way. Those thoughts trailed me every day! Nagging and nagging. Making me feel embarrassed, ashamed and guilty.

The beauty of this is that I also know that over time I’ll start feeling better and adding in extra time or methods of working out, which will lead to healthy eating, etc. It will happen organically. I know this about myself, it’s worked like this the few times in my life where I’ve been successful, and I know it will work again. Now the pressure is off! I’ve freed myself. I’ve released the negative energy that went into this part of my life each day, and I’ve started seeing results.

The key to success at ANYTHING is determination and consistency. If you have those two things you will succeed at any goal.

Habits form in 30 days, so this month I’m focusing on a whole new routine, creating good habits that will propel my success in all areas of my life.

What are your goals?

Can you make a daily goal that is something you’re willing to commit to now?

Then all you have to do is show up. Just do it. Do it tomorrow. Then the next day… Like they say in AA… one day at a time.

Als, be sure to track your daily goals to help keep you motivated. I’m using an app called “DONE” its super easy and visual, two things I need to keep using it regularly. I’m finding it very helpful and motivating, plus it sends me reminders… have you been active for 20 minutes today?


Was this valuable? All I ask in return is that you like, comment and SHARE this, or tell a friend about the work I'm doing, help spreading the word is the best way you can pay it forward :) xo
