By the end of March, 80% of people who made a New Year’s resolution have already given up.  We’re now in mid-February.  Where are you with your goals?  Do you want to be one of the 80% who gives up or part of the 1 in 5 who actually follows through?  If your resolutions had to do with getting in better shape, improving your strength, endurance and overall fitness, what can you do to stick to that resolve?

Whether you made a resolution or not, getting in better shape takes effort and perseverance.  If you’re struggling, here are some great tips on keeping the promises you made to yourself.

7 Tips To Help You Reach Your Goals

1 – Don’t base your goal on what anyone else is doing.  You know yourself best and you know where you want to improve.  Focus on that.

2 – Break your goal down into a series of steps – mini-goals that help you stay motivated and on track.

3 – Share your goals with friends and family.  Not only does it create some level of accountability to other people, it allows your friends and family to support you in them.

4 – If you hit a slump, remind yourself why you’re working so hard.  Envision yourself meeting the goal and how good that feels.

5 – Use rewards as an incentive.  Meet one of your mini-goals? Treat yourself to something special, get a massage, a new pair of workout shoes, some piece of equipment you’ve had your eye on.

6 – Write it down and keep track of your progress.  It feels great to look back at where you’ve been – seeing it in black and white makes it all that more real.

7 – Don’t let setbacks completely throw you off track.  It’s normal to have small set backs.  A cold might take you down, a trip might get you out of your routine but that’s ok.  Get right back to it as soon as you can.
