STEP 3- What can we be doing to help us get there.

Tips when setting your goals


  • Read your goals everyday and track your progress.
  • Share your goals with a friend or family member. Not only can they help you to achieve them but it will also provide you with extra motivation and accountability.
  • Don’t be disheartened if we fall behind on achieving one of our goals, evaluate WHY things didn’t work out and use it as motivation moving forward.
