With New Years resolutions abound, you’d think there would be plans to coincide. How often have you heard resolutions such as; I am going to lose xx pounds, I’m going to start a business, I’m going to go get a best time in a race, I’m going to do an Ironman, I’m going to get out of debt, etc? No doubt, these are great goals, but HOW will they be met? A well thought out plan is the best way. Unfortunately, many people don’t have any semblance of a plan. Think about it, what steps do you need to take in order to accomplish your goal? Is it indeed a true goal or an unrealistic dream? The deciding factor may simply come down to how committed you are. Are you willing to make some sacrifices? Are you willing to put in the time it takes? Are you willing to make some possible lifestyle changes? Are you willing to make and stick to a plan? Most likely, you won’t meet your goals if you don’t make some changes. If you’re not willing to make them, then make your goal more attainable, easier, or change it all together. Being realistic about all this is often the most difficult part.
Now, if you have a goal you really want to attain, then get out there and create a plan…and stick to it as best as you can! Good luck!
