POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF GOAL SETTING
“Be optimistic with your goals, just remember the steps to get there ”
A new year is now underway and although we shouldn’t necessarily wait for a new year, a lot of us seem to take this as a time to start something new, shake a bad habit or simply up our game.
The positive effect of these changes can be AMAZING, but unfortunately for most of us the changes simply don’t last and we find ourselves slumping back into the same patterns with the same bad habits, this has a very negative effect on us.
HOW WILL THIS YEAR BE DIFFERENT FOR YOU?
Don’t set a goal and try going straight to the end result, it more than likely won’t last!!
THERE ARE STEPS TO GET TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE & IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE STEPS, ASK FOR HELP!!!
A perfect example is giving up smoking, most people go from smoking everyday to nothing and wonder why they have cravings and end up smoking again.
It is very hard to go cold turkey so start by having a few less a day and cut out a few days a week, all of a sudden you are cutting down considerably and are well on your way to quitting. It may take 6 months or 12 months depending on the person but with planning and consistency it will happen and be an easy transition by doing it the right way.
Optimism is what drives us to be better but used without planning, optimism can be our biggest downfall.
BE OPTIMISTIC WITH YOUR GOALS BUT JUST REMEMBER THE STEPS AND PLAN FOR SUCCESS
