I think I am justified in saying that setting goals is “easy’ but putting systems in place to ensure you stay motivated to achieve your goals is where most people struggle. In this post, I am sharing 4 creative ways you can stay motivated to achieve your goals.
Here are the steps:
- Buy a bottle of champagne for every goal you set for yourself
- Label each bottle with individual goals
- When you achieve a goal pop that bottle to celebrate!
Doesn’t that sound like such a fun idea?! I won’t take credit for this as I saw someone on my IG share it and had to share with you all! This is definitely something I will be including in my goal setting.
<< Obviously this is one tip I’m 100% on board with.
Write it Down
No, I don’t just mean write it down once in a notebook or on a sticky pad never to be seen again.
I mean write it down EVERY DAY.
This might seem a little extra, but one reason people fail to reach their goals is they forget about them as they are dealing with the daily ups and downs of life.
We owe it to our future self to not forget about our goals! So by making it a habit to write down your goal/goals at some point everyday, you are ensuring you remember to make little steps to achieve that overall goal.
Pro Tip: Set a daily reminder for yourself to do this or simply put your goal in the title as your reminder.
Vision Boards are one of the best ways you can get creative with your goals. So many people swear by creating these to help achieve their goals!
A vision board is a collection of images that depict your goals, any inspiration, or images that will motivate you. Think of it as a photo collage but every picture is intentionally placed for the purpose of helping you focus on achieving your goals.
Many people do these tangibly and place them somewhere they will see it everyday.
Another option is to do a digital version.
You can create a Pinterest board dedicated just to this or get creative in Canva and make a fun wallpaper for your laptop or phone.
Setting challenges for yourself is a great way to help you stay on top of your goals and motivated to achieve them.
A great example of this, is saving challenges. Let’s say you want to save $10,000 in the next 12 months. This can seem very overwhelming if your finances are tight or if you have an unexpected emergency come up that seems to set you back. To make this seem more manageable I suggest setting monthly or quarterly challenges for yourself.
Maybe there is a month or quarter you have more expenses, so you will need to adjust your challenge to account for this and only set a realistic amount to hit at the end of that challenge.
If you use cash you can also set a challenge to save every $1 or $5 bill you get back. There are a lot of ways you can customize this to make it fun and less daunting.
I know this example related to finances but this can be applied to fitness, professional or any goals you set for yourself.
