Share your knowledge. Could someone else benefit from what you've learned so far? Acting as a mentor can strengthen your own commitment to your goals and inspire others to create positive change in their own lives.

Find a goal buddy. While your support group should still be in place, a person who is striving for the same goal can offer greater support,inspiration and accountability. He'll count on you just as much as you count on him. emoticon

On a calendar or spreadsheet, place a BIG sticker,star or checkmark on every day that you met your goals or took positive action steps.Over time, your calendar will become a visual reminder of your progress towards that long-term goal. It will also remind you that the occasional bad day
doesn't have a major effect in the long-run.

Write about your motivation in your journal.There are many reasons you chose your goals—better health, self-esteem, or happiness. Put all these reasons on paper and read them when you need motivation.

Avoid saboteurs. People will try to persuade you to go against your plan, whether they feel guilty themselves or jealous of you. Ignore them. Share your goals with positive people and stay away from these topics around the negative ones.

Take advantage of technology. Sign up for motivational emails or text messages, set reminders on your computer, or have a friend call and check in on you. These little things will keep you focused no matter where you are. emoticon

Develop a plan B.Work, travel, or kids will disrupt your routine,so create alternatives walk during lunch, choose healthy fast foods, or wake up earlier.Doing something is always better than doing nothing.

Don't expect perfection. You will mess up,make mistakes, and forget along the way.The key is persistence and a willingness to learn from your mistakes. Focus on what you have done right instead of dwelling on the negative.

Enlist a diverse support system instead of just one buddy.These people should be encouraging or knowledgeable in helpful ways,whether swapping healthy recipes, exercising with enthusiasm, or sharing weight loss tips.

Share your goals with family and friends for invaluable support and assistance. Confiding in them is a powerful motivator for helping you remain consistent and persistent. Some may be
willing to modify their own lives to help you giving up soda or watching the kids while you hit the
gym,for example.

Make a realistic timeline to stay on track.Deadlines turn wishes into goals. Give yourself adequate time to complete each action step and choose a date when you hope to reach your overall goal. If you haven't started working on your goals yet,today is the day!

Develop an action plan for every goal. For example, a healthy eating resolution may involve: learning more about good nutrition, visiting a dietitian,finding ways to adapt your Recipes,buying containers to pack lunches, learning how to prepare new foods, and planning
extra time for shopping and cooking.Don't overwhelm yourself with every action step at once, but focus on a few things each day.

Are your goals specific and positive? Rather than vowing "to exercise" for example,reword each goal so that it is clear and measurable: I will walk 30 minutes every day. I will complete a 5K race. I will do a yoga DVD twice a week. emoticon emoticon

Welcome to a New Year with New Challenges. In this thread I will write a message each day to help you achieve your goals for this month.


Behavior experts say that it takes about one month to form a new habit, and many people try to create (or break) habits at the start of each year. With the right attitude and focus, you can stick to your plan and achieve long-term success. Each day I will give you a tip that will help you doexactly that. 31 tips in all.


DAY 1.....

Happy New Year! If you haven't yet settled on your top goals for the year, do so today.Writing down your goals (in specific terms) means you're more likely to achieve them. emoticon
