Setting goals is one of the main things that come to mind when you think of the new year. According to the Huffington Post, “Only 8 percent of people actually keep their New Year’s resolutions.” Have you ever set a goal? A better question is, have you ever set a goal and achieved it? What was that goal? To get fit, to become a nicer person, to be vegetarian or even not make any resolutions yourself? Yes there are many ways you can change to become the best you you can be, but there is a simple trick I have learned to make sure that I have a chance to achieve my goals and not give up or abandon what I wish to achieve.

Focus not on the long term outcome, but the steps you need to take to get there. Your goal could be to lose weight. What you need to do first is to allow yourself to create the steps to take action on that goal. First category could be to get fit, and from there you can break that up into more categories like buy only organic fruits and veggies or cut out gluten. It doesn’t matter how you do it as long as you get a clear head and are ready to take action for what you believe you and your body can do.

List Of Goals For The New Year:

  1. Gain strength
  2. Be more active
  3. Be cautious to who is around you
  4. Make up for the things you may have hurt someone for
  5. Change the way you see your food and how it could affect you in the long run
  6. To be the change you want to see in others
