Make it Count in the New Year

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great month of January, so far. We are officially rocking 2018 and I hope you are on your way to make your dreams happen this year! I know for me, personally, I have a lot of financial and work goals on my list for 2018. I also have quite a bit of personal goals to accomplish. If you are interested in reading about my goals for this year, you can check out my post here. But, even though setting your goals is so important, setting yourself up to accomplish them is even more important. If you do not have the right mindset or the physical ability to reach your goals, they will go down the drain and you will have to start over again next year. This is why you need to set goals in order to accomplish your ultimate goals so that you can make it count in the New Year. Am I right?!

So, let’s talk about how set yourself up in a position to achieve your goals! There are a few things that you need to do to make sure you follow through with them.

Set reasonable goals along the way

Having an end goal or a big picture is great, but you need smaller, attainable goals along the way to help you reach your big goal. So, say that you have a goal of saving 10,000 dollars. Maybe on month three, you can do a check in to make sure you have met your short term goal. If you haven’t met your short term goal, you can re-evaluate what you are doing wrong and change your plans to make sure that you meet your next short term goal. This way you are not going the entire year thinking that you are on track, only to be let down.


Don’t burn yourself out

Pushing yourself too hard, or setting too many goals is a definite way to burn yourself out. Like I mentioned above, set smaller, attainable goals throughout the year, leading up to a bigger goal to meet by the end of the year. Let yourself have breaks, let yourself have fun times, and don’t push yourself too hard. If you have a set back, that is okay – take a break, breathe, and then start again. You can do this!


Stay in tip-top condition

Make sure you are physically ready to accomplish your goals, so head on over to your local doctor and dentist office for routine check ups and routine dental work. One thing that I had an issue with over the past few months was a toothache. I went in to my dentist and found out that I actually needed a root canal, which was so scary! Luckily, there are dentists like Dr. Gary Simms with Metro Decatur Dental Group PC who are really gentle and caring. According to Dr. Simms, “Persistent tooth sensitivity that causes moderate or severe tooth pain can be a sign of tooth grinding, tooth decay or another dental problem,” which it definitely was for me. While most dentists have the ability to help clients, not all have the passion and care for clients like Dr. Simms has. He loves what he does, and knows the importance of changing someone’s smile, both functionally and cosmetically; the results often positively change someone’s entire life, not just their smile.  He uses his extensive experience to provide the highest level of dental care to his patients with the utmost respect. Dr. Simms along with his staff at Metro Decatur Dental Group PC believes a conservative, preventative dentistry, and his goal is to increase the longevity of his patients teeth. I don’t know about you, but this is what I want in a dentist – someone that actually cares about me and my health.


Keep the world updated

A great way to keep yourself accountable is by keeping the world updated with your accomplishments (and failures). This will keep you on track by wanting to show off what you have accomplished and will make it easier for you to complete your goals. If you have a blog, post it on there. If you are more of an Instagram person, go with that route! No matter what type of social platform you choose to post on, just make it public and out there. That way your friends can keep you accountable, too.

Reward yourself

Everyone does better when they know they are getting something for their hard work! If you have workout goals, why don’t you put away $1 for each time you work out. Once you have accomplished your big goal, or your smaller goals, take yourself shopping for new clothes (or a cheat meal) with that money that you set aside. You worked hard, so treat yourself!
