There is no special time of year when you vow to make changes, or improvements, in your lives. Would you like to learn a few easy steps to aid you in this process?
WRITE DOWN YOUR GOAL
Add a reasonable date on which to achieve it. Put it in a place that you will see every day. If you have any pictures to support the goal add these. For example, if you are writing a book, make up a cover and keep it where you will see it often.
Daily: Review the goal that you have written for yourself. It's good to do this at night because our minds continue to #think while we rest.
Daily: Write down what you have done to help you obtain the goal, even if it's nothing, you must write it down. Add steps that will help you to obtain that goal. These can be added at any time.
CHANGE YOUR SELF-TALK
Remember: " What you think about you bring about." This means that you can't talk negatively to yourself and expect positive changes. For example, when I am trying to watch what I eat, I always ask myself, " Is it worth the #calories?" if the answer is no, then I don't eat it I stop. I throw it away or give it away. No child will starve anyplace because of your action. If you need to post positive statements in front of you to help you, use physical 'sticky notes' or add computerized notes to your screen.
ASK AN ENTRUSTED FRIEND, RELATIVE, OR COWORKER FOR SUPPORT TO HELP YOU IN MEETING YOUR GOAL.
Maybe they have #goals too. If you cannot find someone you know, find a support group on the internet.
TALK ABOUT YOUR GOALS, LIVE THEM, AND BREATHE THEM
Make them happen! I have used this method to meet many of my goals. Our hopes and dreams don't usually 'just happen' to us. We need to make them happen. If you have no goals, but would like to see changes happening in your life, turn them into goals. Talk to a friend or counselor to help you clarify goals.
TURN PASSIONS INTO GOALS
Don't live a flat-line life, because before you know it, years will have passed you by.
Improvements Take Time and Planning
