January has always been a special month for me, thanks to the tradition of making resolutions. I’m a big believer that I can achieve anything I set my mind to. So today, I’d like to teach you how to get in the mindset it takes to easily accomplish big (and small) goals each year.
Before we begin, what would make 2019 a “wow” year for you? How can you reward yourself this year? Would it be a new car, a boat, or the vacation of your dreams? No matter what your goal is, if you start now, you can make it happen! Here are the four steps to take in reaching your goals:
1. Write down your goals and share them with someone. You have a much better chance of meeting your goals if you write them down. After you’ve written them down, share them with someone. When you say something out loud, your brain believes it more, and the more people you share your goal with, the more committed you are to reaching it.
2. Figure out the first step toward achieving your goal. This can be the hardest part of all; you need to break your goal down and find out the first thing to do. If you want a vacation, search online. Want a car? Find out what your ideal one costs. There are so many tools at your disposal that can make the difficult first step relatively easy.
3. Break down the process of achieving your goal. Let’s say your dream vacation costs $3,000. That amount of money, all at once, is a lot. However, breaking it down into monthly chunks makes it an easier goal to achieve. When a goal seems more manageable, your brain believes it’s something you can do, and then you’ll really have the motivation to make it happen.
4. Find someone to help you. I can’t do it alone, you can’t do it alone—nobody can do it alone. There’s always someone out there who will hold you accountable and make sure you’re staying commmitted to your goal.
