Be resolute

Happy New Year everyone.  I hope you all have a great year!

Have you made any resolutions for 2020?  Have you set any goals?  Have you completed your goals in the past or are does your motivation decline as the days go by?

I found a few tips in my inbox that may be helpful. They range from a fun quiz that determines the type of goal setter you are, to a personal contract, and steps to follow to help you achieve your goals.

The links to these resources are below.  By the way, I have no connection to these sites, and I do not gain anything by sharing them, except knowing that they may help someone.  I do use a Rocketbook, however.

I have also found that using a coach helps keep me on track through support & motivation.  A coach can also point out when you are going astray.  It also seems like an agreement made with a 3rd person is easier to keep than one to yourself.  I am not sure if there is any psychological reason for this, but it seems that people are often more worried about letting someone else down than letting themselves down.  Perhaps share your personal contract with a friend and ask them to check up on you.  If you have to buy your friend dinner if you don’t keep on target, you may be more motivated.

And don’t be afraid of failure.  Failure is how we learn, a step towards success.

If you need a financial coach, please contact me.  We can set up your financial goals and work out a process of steps to achieve them.

Good Luck with your 2020 goals!
