Your resolutions and goals are set, and you’re excited about what’s ahead this year. You’re off and running.  Odds are more than 90% of people will lose this early momentum and disappointingly push their New Year’s resolutions aside. I don’t want that to happen to you.

To kick off the year strong, I’m sharing 5 tips that will help you realize those goals and achieve even greater success this year. 

Tip #3 Create Optimal Conditions for Success

Success doesn’t come easy. You’ve got to put yourself in the position to Persevere through the bumps. How do you do that? Two things I want you to remember. First, my mother taught my siblings and I that you have to take care of yourself first. Invest in your personal wellbeing. It’s so important. Set the stage physically, emotionally, spiritually, and psychologically for success. 

Secondly, my father taught us to plan your work and work your plan. Write down the action steps you need to take. And track your progress. A productivity app like Todoist is a great tool for this.
