17 Simple Hacks For Goal Motivation

What is your New Year’s resolution this year?

Are you committed to hitting the gym more often? Do you want to learn a new language? Are you going to clean out the garage once and for all? Whatever your goals are for the next 12 months, it’s always exciting to dream big and imagine how it will feel when you finally reach them.

Unfortunately, following through on New Year’s resolutions is notoriously tough; in fact, most people don’t make it past February!

And let’s be honest, we’ve all been there at one point or another, right? We set an ambitious goal: “I’m going to work out every day this year with no exceptions!” We stay consistent for about a week or so. And by the end of the month, our streak has completely fizzled out.

Can you relate?

If so, you’re not alone! Believe it or not, only 8% of people who make resolutions actually keep them throughout the year. 8%!?

What gives?

Well, the problem lies in how we set and approach our goals.

You see, setting a goal that’s too lofty or overambitious is often a recipe for disaster – especially if you don’t take the steps to map out your plan and maintain motivation along the way.

Backed by science, these simple tricks are proven to help you stick to your resolutions this year. Whether you’ve just started out on the journey or you are stuck in a slump along the way, these strategies will help keep you moving forward, even if you simply don’t feel like it.
