Posted on: January 2, 2007

goals 2007New Year’s Day is typically a time for setting new goals and resolutions. So here are some tips to help you accomplish the goals you’re setting for yourself:

Set Achievable Goals
To avoid disappointment, create achievable goals. If you set your goals too high, you might fail. So spend some time thinking about a realistic goal, and get ready to tackle it.

Write Your Goals Down
It’s important to write down any goal you’re setting for yourself. Writing down the goal will help you mentally prepare yourself. It’s also a good idea to write down any small goals that will help you accomplish your larger goals. And review the goals you’ve written for yourself on a regular basis.

Don’t Give Up
If you break one of your resolutions, don’t worry. Most people break their resolutions by mid-year. The key to achieving your goals is to realize that you might make a mistake, but to press on afterward. It’s all about your attitude and how you respond to mistakes.

Share Your Goals
It’s sometimes helpful to share your personal goals with a close friend or loved one. Sharing your goals can help you get support and encouragement. This is also a great way to get others involved in helping you become successful.

Be Positive
Make sure to write positive goals for yourself. Instead of writing a negative goal like “don’t eat soda or candy anymore,” you should write “eat healthy foods.” Writing positive goals will help you stay more positive. And staying positive is important when changing habits.

We hope some of these tips help you when creating new goals for yourself. We wish you a wonderful 2007!
