You have made the resolution, now to stick to it. Nearly 42% of people that establish a resolution fail to follow through on that resolution. Not this time! Here are some steps to follow to keep you on track and focused on the goal.
Step 1 - Make your goal visible. A goal in your head is an idea. Sharing the idea with others will help make the vision a reality. Create a vision board that reflects the completion of the goal and share your board for others to see.
Step 2 - Develop your mindset around the successful completion of your resolution. You body achieves what your mind believes. Recite and/or write your affirmations for your resolution. Create a positive mindset and curb any doubt that you may have.
Step 3 - Set small goals that support your larger vision. There are many known sayings about taking small steps, eating one bite at a time, etc. Take your overall goal or resolution and break it down into smaller goals to track your progress along the way. These milestones will establish a plan to keep you on track and allow feedback to stay on course.
Step 4 - Find a group or an accountability partner. It is important to surround yourself with those that support you. Find a group that is focused on your interest to find like minded people or find a friend that you trust to hold you accountable to following your plan. An accountability partner and group will provide feedback that you may not see on your own.
Step 5 - Hire a coach. If you find that you are needing additional support or a person to help map your blueprint to success, it is time to consider hiring a coach. Look for a coach that understands your goals and what it will take to keep you on track.
A goal may seem daunting when you look only at the end result. It is important to break it down into smaller steps and celebrate each milestone along the way. Think of constructing a building. A building is built one brick, nail and board at a time. Without the blueprints as a guideline, the building would not exist. Follow your blueprint and completion of your goal will become reality. #OneDayOneStep
