How To Make New Years Goals That Actually Stick

New Years resolutions come and go in the blink of an eye and most of which fail simply because they didn’t persevere or push themselves to stay on track. Pushing yourself to succeed is one of the best things you can do to make the changes you want in life. So how can you set goals that actually stick and make sense? 

Be Practical
Think realistically at what you can accomplish over the next year. Starting a savings account is a great goal and starting to put money in it is another great achievement. If you have a savings goal in mind write it down and share it with people who will support you. 

Talk About Your Goals 
Having someone who loves and cares about you around to support your decisions and motivate you to succeed is very helpful. Talking about what you wish to achieve, how you can get it done and the steps you need to take to make your dreams a reality can make all the difference. If you can’t get your spouse onboard you can still achieve goals on your own, just remember you can do anything you put your mind to. 

Think About Your Future
Is your goal going to change your life for the better? Think about what your life will be like when you achieve your goals, maybe you’re saving for a down payment on a house, paying off your debt, trying to quit smoking, or saving for a new vehicle. These goals will make positive changes in your life and that’s reason enough to stay on track. 

Walt Disney once said “if you can dream it, you can do it” and I firmly believe this to be true 100%. We can do anything we set our minds to so hold your head high, push yourself, and stay on target. You only have the one life so make the most of it and achieve your dreams.
