Dust off your goals...

With the new year quickly approaching, many people will start to think about resolutions for 2018.  But why wait until January to think about your goals?  There’s no time like the present!  Here’s how to dust off your goals and get a jump start to the new year:

Uncover goals from the past. Instead of creating new goals, think about goals you’ve had in the past that you didn’t achieve, or, goals that you never tried to achieve.  Instead of leaving things unfinished, face your old goals head on and pick up where you left off.  Not only will it boost your confidence, but it will motivate you to achieve more in the coming year.

Don’t wait until the new year to get started.  Procrastination never helped anyone when it comes to finding success and reaching your goals.  Don’t use waiting until 2018 as an excuse to start working for what you want - the remainder of 2017 is as good a time as any!  And, won’t it feel good to already have made progress towards a goal come January 1st?

Talk about it.  Sharing goals with people you trust will give you an extra “push" to help you get where you want to be.  The more you talk about your goals, the more real they become.  It’s important to build relationships with people who want to see you succeed.
