An Accomplished Year
Make It Your Best Yet....
Moving into a brand new year can consume us with a variety of emotions. Some are filled with positivity, happiness, gratitude and a willingness to go out and chase their dreams. In essence, to make this year their best yet.
Others are filled with anxiety, hopelessness, despondency and often see no hope of change. As we move into the third week of the new year, we aim to empower you with little tips on how to turn the year into your favour regardless of how you feel right now.
You see, no matter how you feel in relation to some of the points above, we all have the same chance of success, in this year, or any year that follows. Last night, we brought you the first two points to take you forward and onward to your goals. In this blog, we are going to bring you a further two pointers, numbers three and four, to steer you toward wherever it is that you’re going.
#3. Set goals. Sounds simple, right? In theory, it is simple, but the reality is that so many people fail to set goals or targets and continue on, ultimately, to failure. Research has found that most of us give up on our wants and needs by the middle of February. That leaves us with a further 10 months or so, to creep through the year waiting for the calendar flip until we begin the ‘new year, new me’ scenario again.
Do this instead. Set goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and drawn up against a timeline. These five, simple-to-follow markers are your guide this year and every year from now on. Set goals, hit them and move onto the next.
#4. Be accountable. Point number four is crucial. So many people get lost within the gym environment due to the enormity of some fitness facilities. Try as they might, the teams within them are often too small to control so many people. People lack accountability. You need to be pro-active, rather than re-active and find a person or several people who are on the same path as you. These will become the people who will help to motivate you, to inspire you and tell you that you can do it at the times where you may doubt yourself.
