Congratulations! You’ve Reached Your Goal… Now What?

It’s Tuesday! …the perfect day to stop what you’re doing and congratulate yourself.  Take a moment now and give yourself a little credit.  Did you make it through the summer without a sunburn?  Did you lose half a pound last week?  If you’re reading this then you woke up this morning. Congratulations!

Well, since today is Tuesday, let’s make it a day of celebration.  We have reached our goals!  Now what?  We have asked our panel of experts this same question and have been flooded with helpful tips for every type of goal imaginable!  So look for reasons to congratulate yourself every Tuesday, read what our experts recommend, and feel free share your tips with us too!

We are always looking for ways to improve ourselves.  We want smoother skin, more muscle tone, less weight, a brighter smile, and the list goes on and on.  I love to set goals for myself, writing goals, exercise goals, weight loss goals.  You name it, I’ve set it.  And it’s likely I’ve set the same goal more than once!

Are you like me and become tired of having to reset the same goal?  Check out this tip from Women’s Health & Anti-Aging Expert, Acupuncturist & Herbalist, Kristen Burris.  She says:

Saddle Up an Accountability Partner

“Once you have reached your goals, accountability will keep you in line. Choose someone who doesn’t judge you and is compassionate if you slip up. Same time, same place: choose a time to share your success or failures of the week.  Speaking about your successes and weaknesses will reinforce your resolve to stick with it or get back in the saddle and make good choices again.”

    Being self employed is a challenge. I have tried many things to hold myself accountable, an accountability partner being one of them. When my real-estate agent friend and I decided to become accountability partners I accomplished so much more!

    I would go through the same down periods as before, but would have someone there to encourage me to try again. Before I knew it, those down times became shorter and they occurred much less frequently.

    We haven’t met in a long while and I can really tell the difference. Thanks for the reminder!
