Are you planning on setting new goals this year? If you haven't done a goal before? Do you understand what it means and how to set it up to make yours achievable? Follow along for some tips on creating it achievable for you.
First, let's define it in a few words.
What is a goal?
A goal is a way to motivate ourselves to take action and help us move toward where we want to be in our lives. The challenge is to determine where we want to be in our lives.
How to make a Goal achievable?
Now that you understand what it is, let's talk about ways to help you achieve it.
Pick only a few this year.
The fewer you have, the easier it will be to achieve them. A goal can quickly get overwhelming when you have too many complex ones. Make them have different purposes in your life. Like, one could be to eat healthier, and the other one is working out at least three times a week. Each has its own set of habits that you will need to establish to help you achieve the goals.
Pick only ones that are important to you.
Pick a goal that is important to you to help you stay on track. When those hard struggles happen or those busy times occur, the importance of the goal will help see you through and keep you focused.

When you have determined your goal, decide a set of steps to do to get yours started.
Visualize yourself doing these steps—the smaller the steps to get you through, the better. Achieving your important goals do not happen overnight, so take your time and decide what you plan to do to make it a reality.
Writing the goal(s) down will help you determine the steps. Use sticky notes, write down each task you want to do to achieve your goal, and move them around to pick the order from easiest to hardest. Do the easier ones to achieve first, then move on to the more difficult ones.
After you have determined your steps to make yours happen, it's now time to move forward and take action. Remember, you are never too old or young to have one. I hope this year is excellent for you and your family. Peace!
