Tip #5 Give Yourself Some Grace

You’ve been working really hard to hang in there on that New Year’s resolution. It hasn’t been easy. Sometimes, you feel like you’ve failed and you might as well give up. Don’t fall into that trap.  

To help you stay the course, I’m sharing 5 tips that will help you realize your goals and achieve even greater success this year.

Tip 5 Give Yourself Some Grace

There are days when you’ve made really good progress and other days when you wish you could rewind the clock and try it again. Who can be knocking it out of the park 100% of the time? No one does. 

So, don’t beat yourself up when you missed your workout for the third day in a row, or that promotion didn’t come exactly when you had hoped. If you are blessed with another day, you get another shot at trying it again. Recognize and appreciate those small milestones and the effort it’s taken to get to where you are today. That’s progress. And don’t be shy, celebrate it!

2-Minute Take Action:

Right now, take just two minutes to reflect back on the progress you’ve made on your goal so far. What have you accomplished compared to where you started? Write it down. The small successes add up. When you celebrate them, it keeps you motivated. 

Go get your success this year! I know you will!
