How to Get Better Results from Your Resolutions and Goals – Part Three
by Carol Brown
Ask yourself if your goal is worth the effort and sacrifice that will be needed to achieve it. If you can honestly answer yes, you’re on your way!
Think about what will happen if you don’t follow through. Would nothing much happen if you didn’t achieve your goal? If not, then you need to raise the stakes!
You have to make your goal a priority – think of the negative consequences if you don’t do it. You might even create some of your own negative consequences by agreeing to give up something you love or some kind of forfeit if you don’t make it happen. Remember about your values in the process too. For example, what will it do to your self-respect if you don’t follow through?
The thing is, you won't have to give anything up and will have much to gain when you do follow through!
