Can you believe how quickly 2015 is flying by? It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in the New Year! Now here we are, almost halfway through the year.

You may think it’s a little odd to be talking about goals and New Year’s Resolutions in June. But I’ve seen too many people get off track and never reach their goals. And I don’t want that to be you. That’s why today we are refreshing your vision, refocusing, and maybe even taking a second swing at your New Year’s goals.

These 4 keys will keep you on track:

  1. Take a look at the list of goals you made in January and evaluate where you are right now. This is a time to take an honest look at what you have accomplished so far, and what is still not done.It’s very important to celebrate your accomplishments along the way! If your goal was to cut your fancy coffee budget in half, so you went from $20/week to $10/week, then celebrate that accomplishment! Did you reach your goal of increasing your income by 50%? Great job! Celebrate that! Say you have a goal to lose 50 pounds this year, and you have lost 20. You are well on your way! (HINT: Even if you have not reached the goal yet, celebrate your progress! This will spur you on to complete your list!)
  2. Prioritize your list. What is still on your list you must accomplish before 2015 ends? If you had a list of 10 big goals that would take you all year to accomplish, it’s unrealistic to think you will accomplish all 10 of them in only 6 months. In fact, if you set out to do all 10 of them, you are setting yourself up for failure. That’s why it’s so important to prioritize your goals.
  3. Take action! You can hope, plan and prioritize all you want, but unless you take action, you will not accomplish anything. However, when you make a solid decision – when you set a goal – and take action, you will succeed!
  4. Keep your eyes on the prize. What is your vision? Let your vision push you forward! Remember WHY you’re doing what you’re doing. When the going gets tough or you don’t feel like sticking to your goals, keep your vision in the forefront of your mind. Set reminders for yourself. Put a sticky note in your car or on the refrigerator, write it on your bathroom mirror, put a picture on your phone to remind you of your goals. This will encourage you and motivate you to take continuous action.

Whether this message comes as encouragement to stay on the right track, a reminder to get back on track, or a much needed wake-up call, I hope these tips help you to move toward your goals!

I believe in you, and I can’t wait to hear your recap at the end of the year, when you’ve successfully accomplished everything you set out to do in 2015!

Can you think of 5 people who could benefit from an extra nudge back onto the right track? It could be your friends, family, church members or even coworkers. Go ahead and forward this message to them and be sure to let me know below how you plan to finish 2015 off the charts.
