Make a Plan
Sitting down and making a plan is motivational in itself. When you have to think about what you want to accomplish and how you’re going to get there; you become eager to get started. Make your plan broken out in steps, and make those steps easy, achievable, smaller goals.
Track Your Progress
Whatever goal you’re reaching for, take before and after photos or notes. It’s hard to see how far you’ve come when you’re focused on the smaller steps in your plan. You can get caught up in looking at how much further you have to go instead of looking back at how far you’ve already come.
Even if you aren’t seeing the outcome you want, as quickly as you want, stay positive! Changing a habit, your body, or completing a goal takes time. Take another look at how far you’ve come since you started. And remember, things take time.
