Have you given up on your goals yet? I hope not, friend!
If you’ve stuck with me for a while, you know I tried Lara Casey’s PowerSheets for the first time last year. Although I didn’t keep up with tracking my progress on the blog, I used them religiously. There wasn’t a month I skipped, and I can look back and see the growth I made throughout the year.
More than anything, I grew spiritually. It was important for me to focus more on God and building relationships in God. Thankfully, I began doing that. It has impacted my life in ways that I am beyond thankful for and in ways that I could have never expected.
I’m hoping that you’re still striving to achieve your goals, and even if you have paused, I hope you jump back on track. Sometimes, we get into the trap of setting lofty goals and harsh deadlines. I know I’ve been guilty of that one. (Anybody else wanted to lose __lbs before Spring Break?) We can do better, friend. We have the power to stay motivated.
Here are some tips that I have to help you stay motivated.
- Make sure your goals are representative of your values
- Find accountability partners to help with specific goals
- Review and modify your goals multiple times throughout the year
- Place your goals where you can see them
Want to know what I’m aiming to achieve this year? Here’s my list so far:
- Get closer to God.
- Live intentionally
- Live simply
- Build a successful blog and business
- Tear down debt
- Present myself as I would like to be addressed
- Take steps to live a healthier life
These goals are subject to change throughout the year, but I feel that they are very representative of the direction I would like to take my life in 2017. Will they change? Well, there’s a great possibility, and I’ve learned to be okay with that. I’m hoping you decide to allow your goals to grow with you as you go through the year as well.
