How To Get Your Goals In Check For 2017.

Hello and Happy New Year! Welcome to my first post of 2016.

New Year's celebrations mean copious amounts of prosecco, fireworks and GOALS (aka New Year Resolutions) We all make them, change them and hopefully achieve them. I say hopefully because let’s face it we’re creatures of habit and it’s a lot easier to say you’ll do something than actually doing it!

A new year equals 365 opportunities to make better choices everyday, so that this time next year you can look back at everything you’ve achieved and see how far you’ve come. In the effort to not become a cliché overly-optimistic ramble about turning your life into the dream world you’ve always imagined, I want to stress that not every days turns out the way we want it to, things don’t always go to plan and it's important to be able to adapt but as long as you still want to do something, take each new day as a blessing to put towards enjoying life and making it the best it can be!
You’ve made your resolutions right? Here’s my best tips and thoughts on how to get that sh*t done!

Clear Your Mind
If you're after a fresh start, the best way to get motivation to give your goals 100% is to start with a clear mind. Resolve all your issues from the previous year and try to find closure to leave those problems in 2016, then you'll have a much clearer mind to figure out what you really want! The best ways I can suggest to do this in general are to face your issues head on and try to handle them with dignity... be straight up with people in your life and if someone has a negative effect on your life leave them behind. We all learn lessons differently but at some point we all realise you can not force people to change their actions or emotions and trying to is a complete waste of your own time... all we can do is support. The best ways I can recommend to clear your mind is take a long walk by yourself, talk to someone about your dreams and aspirations or try exercise like jogging or yoga to get that important 'me time'.

Be Realistic + Get A Plan Of Action
I'm a big believer in dreaming and believing you can achieve anything in this world, but saying you want to be a marine biologist in the Maldives and then doing nothing your whole life that enables that dream to come true means it simply NEVER will happen. In this life you have to take small steps that eventually lead you to success and thats why so many people give up, if it was easy everyone would do it! You need to be realistic about your new years goals whether they're personal goals, like to stop rushing everything or career goals, think about small ways to slowly change your lifestyle to achieve these things. Make these small steps to put together an action plan for the year and since they're smaller things they will be a lot easier to stick to.
Find Your Motivation
Now you've got your plan of action to work towards, the hardest part is to actually stick to what you've imagined which, as we all know can be a bit of a ball ache! I think deep down it all comes down to how much do you actually want something... if you wanted to achieve something so bad you would get the self-discipline to do it however, when we live such busy lives it's sometimes easier just to let things slip. The best advice I can give for this is to really focus on finding your own kind of motivation, what makes you want you want to get up on a cold rainy night to workout or stay away from takeaways even though it's been a long day and you can't be bothered to cook? If you want something, you are the only one who can do it! Overall just remember to be happy while you're working on yourself because happiness isn't a destination and neither is life, it's all about those years we spend grafting that ultimately is our life.

I'd love to know what your goals are for 2017 and what inspires you? Happy New Year -xo
