As the season shifts from summer to fall it’s an excellent time to hone in on what you really want out of life, and determine what’s working and what’s not in your attempt to achieve it.
As the leaves start to fall, you too can use this as a catalyst to begin falling into some new habits that’ll help jumpstart your goals. There’s no need to waste an entire quarter of a year, before chasing your goals full throttle come the New Year.
Starting a new habit is a lot easier than trying to break the ones you have. It's all in the approach.
Below, I will share 3 simple habits you can easily begin that’ll make a huge difference where your goals are concerned.
Fall Into Better Habits: 3 Ways to Jumpstart Your Goals Before The New Year
1. Your Goals Are Simply a Turn of the Page Away
In other words, read. Whatever your goal is, there are plenty books waiting to educate you on the subject to make it easier for you to crush it.
Whether you’re looking to boost your finances, start your own business, lose weight or win a Nobel Prize, there’s something for you.
If you’re simply lacking inspiration, I recommend my best-seller Lucky Code. #ImNotAfraidOfShamelessPlugs
Gone are the days when you had to struggle to get the information you needed. Everything is now at your fingertips. Amazon allows you to purchase books online or have electronic ones sent to your smart phone. Even YouTube has a video for just about everything under the sun. We are in an age of information – let’s use it!
Some of my favorite books that have helped me with my different goals are as follows:
Rich Dad Poor Dad
Smart Women Finish Rich
Think and Grow Rich
The Conscious Parent
Money, Master the Game
Forks over Knives
No excuses not to get in on this. You could even download the audio / kindle versions for most of them to listen/read on the go!
2. Just Clock It
If you’re thinking, “I don’t have the time to read”, then this is for you. If you say, “I’d do (fill in the blank), if only I had the time.” This too is for you.
Newsflash, we all have the same 24 hours and we are all busy. Why then do some achieve and others merely dream of one day achieving?
Winners. Make. The. Time. *dramatic piano chord*
Allow your clock to be your allied – it is not your enemy.
Wake up early, go to bed a little later. Use your lunch breaks. Spend your weekends wisely. Work smarter today, so that tomorrow you can chill.
The new IOS (sorry android users but I’m an Apple fan), has some new cool alarms that will wake you up less dramatically. Use them.
Schedule time to do your reading/planning/actions that will help you get closer to your goals like your life depends on it, because it does.
3. Eat Better
Now this one is far from exciting, but needs to be shared. What we put into our bodies determines just how much energy we’ll have to chase those goals of ours.
Since making the switch to a vegan lifestyle my mood is better, I have more energy, my memory has improved and my thoughts are much clearer.
Now, although I’m not telling you that you must go vegan (though I could list a million reasons you should), you must begin to realize just how important your body’s health is to your success.
After all, who will chase your goals for you if you’re sick?
Start small by incorporating more fruits and veggies into your diet daily. The vitamin boost will have your brain doing the cha-cha!
