When a new year approaches, many of us have a list of resolutions we aim to achieve, but not all of us manage to be off to the races come January 1. If you didn’t start off the New Year on the best note, there are still ways to push forward, even if you got off to a rough start.

To help you get on track and not lose any more time when it comes to pursuing your goals, we have a list of ways to motivate yourself and take that pivotal first step. Remember, we all falter at some point, but it’s how you recover from setbacks that matter most. Happy New Year!

Narrow Your Focus

Sometimes when we set out to achieve big things our ultimate focus gets lost because we failed to narrow our scope. This is especially true of New Year’s resolutions, which can have you casting a very wide net instead of starting off small.

The best way to ensure results is to narrow your focus down to a few things at a time and fully give those things all that you’ve got. By attacking your goals in small increments instead of attempting to challenge a full, long list, you’re setting yourself up for better chances at permanent success.
