One week to set smart and attainable goals

Wow, another Christmas just zoomed on by without a hitch, that is pretty amazing with all going on in the country. I think many of us feel that the big picture is so far out of our hands that we need to just concentrate on the things we can fix like our health, our family, and maybe getting ready to control our bad habits with next weeks resolutions.

I am amazed because it seems like more and more people are really starting to want to make some changes, and I think for the first time in many years, I think they really mean it! All I can say is over the next week as you ponder where you are and where you would like to be, when you mull over your bad habits and the changes you would like to make, set easy and attainable goals. What I mean by that is, if you have sixty pounds to lose, set your goal at five pounds per month. When you are able to satisfy your goals every month, you WILL stay motivated and you will find you can even lose more every month once the goal is attained.

When you have a huge mountain goal in front of you it is a mountain that most people can not conquer, but attainable goals are satisfied, and you will walk over them and on to the next one with a positive and take on the world attitude.

So, be kind to yourself and smart about the goals you set, and logical on how long they may take to complete.
