You've started working on your goal, you are completely committed to it, you work on it every day and then all of a sudden..... you stop. Maybe you got bored. Maybe you got distracted. Maybe you have doubts of why you started in the first place. Whatever the reason, you are not alone. This happens to everyone at one time or another. Just because you have not been fully committed to your goals lately does not mean you have failed, it just means you need to start again.
Here are 7 things that may help you recommit to your goals:
Remember Why You Set These Goals Why was this goal important to you? What are the benefits of accomplishing or risks of not accomplishing this goal?
Recommit to Your Goals Remember that every day is a new beginning, a new chance to get it right. Just because you didn’t work toward your goals yesterday does not mean you should not work on it today. Make the commitment to wake up every morning and start (or continue) working toward your goals.
Reassess Your Expectations Make sure your expectations are realistic and you can achieve what you plan to achieve in a reasonable amount of time.
Take Some Time Off If you really need a break, set aside some down-time. Go outside and sit in the sun, read, go for a walk. Make sure you set a specific time when you will start again.
Fine Tune Your Plan Write down what you want to accomplish, your plan of action and how long it will take to achieve these goals. Take this one step further by reviewing, revising and/or rewriting out the tasks you will do to accomplish your goals. Give each task an estimated end date to work toward.
Share Your Goals Find a friend you can check in with from time to time to discuss your goal. This will make you feel more accountable. By having someone to report to, you are more likely to work consistently toward your goals.
Find a Role Model Find someone who is already doing this successfully and follow their lead.
