It’s the second month of the year, how are you doing on your goals for the year? I know many times we enthusiastically set goals for ourselves at the beginning of the year and as the year goes on, we lose sight of them. Today, I want to share with you 6 ways you can stay focused on your goals.
Write them out in a notebook often
What is written is real. There is power in writing things down. Multiply your power by writing out your goals often in your favorite notebook. I noticed that I got more accomplished when I would write things down. Up your success rate by writing your goals in present tense. For example, I produce $10,000 more in income. Now if you read that out loud, I guarantee you that your mind went to work on how to bring that statement to fruition. Give it a try.
Create a picture collage
As the second month began, I wanted to focus on specific goals for the month. In order to this, I came up with the idea of making a picture collage and setting it as my lock screen on my phone. You can do this too. Just use any collage making app on your phone and ta da, you have your own personal goal collage.

Make a Goal Board
In addition to a digital board or if digital isn’t your thing, you can make a physical goal board that you can post up somewhere at home. To do this you will need the following:
Foam Board (large or small)
Within the magazines, find pictures and words that align with your goals. You can do a board one of two ways. 1. For a specific goal or 2. For multiple goals.
Evaluate your goals every 30 days
Taking personal inventory on your progress is key. Otherwise, how would you know if you making progress? Ask yourself some key questions and be honest with yourself. From your answers take action, make the necessary adjustments, and you will be well on your way to success.
