I believe that our goals are too lofty. While I believe we need to challenge ourselves, we also need to have some level of realism in order to maintain our commitment to the goal.
Instead of making a resolution to buy a lottery ticket every week to increase the odds of winning and retiring early, put a small portion of each paycheck aside for retirement.
Instead of signing up for a marathon, increase your running/walking distance a 1/2 mile each month until you can run/walk consistently for 45 minutes.
Instead of signing up for the most popular diet plan, start by decreasing your sugar intake by 50% and increasing your water intake by 50%.
Instead of unplugging all digital devices, substitute 30 minutes of reading for 30 minutes of watching TV.
Positive change is more sustainable if done in moderation.
Starting small and feeling success is more motivating than starting too big and needing to scale back.
Set challenging, yet realistic goals for yourself.
It's not about being the best, it's about BEING BETTER than you were YESTERDAY.
Now it's up to you!!
