3 Ways to Actually Reach Your Goals and Keep Them
1. Make Action Steps
I feel that action steps are the secret key to reaching your goals!
Action steps are the steps or the plan of action that you will do to actually achieve that goal.
For example, if your goal is to lose 10 pounds then some of your action steps will be to cut carbs, exercise 2 at least times a week, drink more water, etc.
Without an actual plan for each goal, your goal is sure to be a bust.
To make lasting action steps for each of your goals, you want to think of the goal and think of the realistic things you have to do to reach your goal.
The hardest part of a goal is to actually keep it and do it- so to make this part easier the best thing to do is write down your goal and each step you want to take for that goal.

2. Create habits
The next thing you want to do to reach your goals is to create habits that align with your goal.
To keep the same example as above, if you want to lose 10 pounds then some of the habits you would want to start is to eat out less and buy fresh food ingredients.
Your habits and action steps will begin to coincide and your goal reaching will feel less like a battle and more like a lifestyle!

3. Stay motivated
The next way to reach your goals is to STAY MOTIVATED! This, in my opinion, is the hardest thing to do.
You want to keep yourself motivated and on track for each of your goals. Here are some ways you can keep yourself motivated:
- You can write motivational quotes and inspirational quotes on sticky notes and stick them your bathroom mirror or on your closets.
- Set a reminder on your phone of some of your daily habits and action steps for your goals.
- When you feel exhausted and overwhelmed- take a step back and breathe and know it’s okay to change some of your action steps.
- Make a “get motivated” playlist and listen to it at least once a day.
- Take a few minutes a day to work on your action steps. Maybe even plan out 15 minutes in your planner to focus on that goal!
- Have an accountability partner who can help you stay on track and stay motivated!
Self-motivation can be hard but it all starts with your mindset. Keep yourself encouraged, have confidence in yourself! All success and failure start with knowing that YOU CAN DO IT!
