Many people struggle to stick to goals. I like to think of myself as a determined person who is pretty good at sticking to the goals I set myself. Sometimes. There are times when I don’t stick to goals…

One thing I am good at sticking at is fitness goals. I feel like that’s because it’s something I have more control over than goals such as ‘gain 1000 Twitter followers’. Everything is within my control and it’s all down to me and how hard I need to work. If I put in the time and effort, I see the results.

I know a lot of people struggle with fitness and exercise. One thing I see often is people saying they’ll start tomorrow, or on Monday, or on the first of the month, or the first day of the year.

Imagine where you would be if you started 6 months ago

I’ve got a quote that might help you. I don’t even know if it is a quote, but it is something that has helped me. I don’t know where I heard the concept, but it is something that has stuck with me for a long time when I think of giving up on a goal.

The trick is to imagine where you would if you started 6 months ago. It’s a great way to get yourself to stop putting off your start date and also a great way to keep you on track when you’re feeling like you want to quit.

6 months flies by, doesn’t it? So just think where you will be in 6 months if you power through, stop putting things off and stick to your commitments, it’ll soon be 6 months later and you can look back at your starting point and see how far you’ve come.

Try it!

  1. These last six months have definitely flown by for me! I like this quote though & think it’s a fab one to live your life by! I’m quite 50/50 when it comes to sticking with my goals, I could definitely do with persevering a bit more with some of them.
