These practical tips on goal setting can help make it easier to set and reach goals:
1.Specific, realistic goals work best. When it comes to making a change, the people who succeed are those who set realistic, specific goals.
2.It takes time for a change to become an established habit. That’s because your brain needs time to get used to the idea that this new thing you’re doing is part of your regular routine.
3.Repeating a goal makes it stick. Every time you remind yourself of your goal, you’re training your brain to make it happen.
4.Pleasing other people doesn’t work. The key to making any change is to find the desire within yourself â€” you have to do it because YOU want it.
5.Roadblocks don’t mean failure. Slip-ups are actually part of the learning process as you retrain your brain into a new way of thinking. Just make a U-turn and get back on track.
