Inspiring you! 5 tips that will help you attain your goals this year

Hey lovelies

I know as we flipped the calendars to a new year, a lot of people have also flipped their 'to do lists' outlining things they intend to achieve this year. I decided to bring you a few tips on how to make it work.


1. Be specific: It starts with outlining your goals. Do not leave them in your head. Take the time out to define them and write them out. Keeping a visual representation of it somewhere where you can easily see them helps to keep you focused.

2. Be realistic: It is great to think big but ensure to set goals that are attainable. Do not try to out do yourself or you will end up stressing yourself and wanting to give everything up. 

3. Be focused: Avoid distractions. There is nothing greater than your will. If you say no, nothing can stand in the way. All you need is to tell yourself what you really want.

4. Be consistent: Your goals will change throughout the year, that is for sure. But make sure that they follow a certain pattern where they do not completely deviate from each other, hence it is important to sit down and think things through otherwise you'll see yourself using the early parts of the year to build something and somewhere along the line you realize that it is exactly the opposite of what you want and you spend the other half trying to destroy what you worked so hard to build.

5. Evaluate them: I would strongly suggest that you finds way to make short term goals within your long term ones. It could be weekly evaluations, monthly... But you definitely need something to help you monitor your progress. For instance let's say you want to lose 50kg at the end of 2014, break down into weeks/months otherwise you will find yourself at the dawn of the 30th of December with unfulfilled dreams. 


I hope y'all have a fulfilled year, this year

Love always
