Still, we are our biggest critics. We always find things we want to change or tweak just a little.

Let me give you some strategies for accomplishing all your goals this year 😉

1. Start small.

The biggest mistake people make is setting goals that are way too big so when they start to falter, they give up.

Example: want to compete in a marathon this year? Start with getting yourself to run a mile every day and slowly increase to two miles and so on and so forth!

Set smaller goals, they are easier to reach and will inspire you to continue to continue to work towards achieving more of your other goals. Tips for Sticking to your New Year's Resolution by LilHelper.ca Blog

2. Ask for help.

Do you feel yourself slipping and don’t know how to get back on track? Ask for help! We all need a little support when accomplishing our goals.

Example: you wanted to quit smoking but you’ve made it a day and now you’re craving a cigarette bad? Ask for help!

Ask a friend to distract you when you feel this way with a phone call, take a quick walk to get your mind off of it (I know quitting is very difficult but YOU CAN DO IT!) or even rip a cigarette right out of your mouth!

3. Don’t stress too much.

Did you slip? It’s all good. Don’t stress about it. Instead, focus on what you will do differently next time, and continue trying to reach your goals!

Don’t stress. You got this.

Find a room to begin in and make sure you take something out every time you bring another thing in.

4. Have an accountability buddy.

This is my favorite one which is why I saved it for last even though it’s slightly similar to “ask for help.”

An accountability buddy is someone who is trying for the same goals as you and can check on you to make sure you are still on track.

Example: you wanted to get in shape but don’t feel like going to the gym? Get a gym buddy who is also trying to get in shape to keep you motivated and drag you to the gym if necessary!
