5 ways to keep your goals throughout the year
1.Believe in it
In order to keep moving forward with your goal, set it on something you really believe in. Drop the generic “Lose 5 pounds by February” or “50 pounds by next year” if that’s not something you believe you should be doing. Look at what you really wish to accomplish, want you really believe in doing, and set your goals there.
Drop the resolutions to change and deprive yourself and set an intention to bring more into your life. When we set resolutions, we are resolving to do away with the bad pars of ourselves, and when we fail at our resolutions, we see ourselves as bad, negative, and unworthy. Forget about the resolutions and make an intention to start adding more things your love about your life in. Find healthy foods you love, movements that inspire you, and passions that ignite you. Intend to bring in more of those and what your intentions flourish all year.
Instead of setting a concrete goal, set an intention to feel a specific way. Intend to feel healthy this year, rather than lose a set amount of weight. Set an intention to feel energized, rather than to exercise 60 minutes 5 times a week. Find how you wish to feel and do anything that truly brings you that feeling.
Set your goals for you, not for what you think you should set it for. In order to keep moving and growing with your goals, you have to really want it. Maybe you feel you “should” eat healthier, but if you don’t actually want to do it, you won’t stick with it. Find the goals that inspire you to keep growing, but are changes that you really want to make.
5.Let it go
Stay relaxed with your goals. You may meet them, you may not. You may surpass them beyond your wildest dreams. You may change your mind mid-course and discover the universe has something completely different in ind for you. Let go of the tight grip on your goal and you just might find the stars.
