7 Insanely Successful Guides to Reach Your Goals This Year
How To Reach Your Fitness Goals
You’ve set a goal to “get back in shape,” “go to the gym more often,” or “start living more healthfully.” And for the first two weeks, you’re surpassing each benchmark. You’re working out almost every day, and your diet hasn’t “slipped” once.
But then, all of a sudden, things get a little harder. Waking up for that 5:00 a.m. gym class doesn’t come quite so easily. And walking by the donuts in the break room takes considerably more effort than it had last week.
What gives? Why is everything so difficult all of a sudden?
If this sounds familiar to you, then this fitness goal guide is exactly what you need to start living your healthiest life today!

Top Goal Setting Strategies:
How a Goals Pyramid Helps You Reach Your Goals
Whether your goal is big or small, long-term or short-term, using a goals pyramid is a sure-fire way to help you see success.
What is a goals pyramid, you ask? Simply put, a goals pyramid is a practical way to break down your biggest dreams into tangible, attainable steps. It takes away the intimidation by helping you identify actions you can take to move forward every single day.
Plus, when you use a goals pyramid, it’s easier to recognize your consistent progress, which makes it much more motivating to continue working toward your goals.
How If-Then Planning Helps You Reach Your Goals
For many of us, working toward new goals feels manageable at first. Whether we’ve set an intention to hit the gym three times a week, journal nightly, or cut sugar from our diet, these early stages of habit formation seem attainable…possibly even exciting.
Why? Because motivation and excitement give us that extra nudge of enthusiasm and dedication to follow through.
Once the novelty of a new routine wears off, however, and going to that 5:00 a.m. gym class now feels like a chore, we start finding excuses.
Fortunately, there is an excellent strategy to give us the nudge we need to stick with our plan, maintain our habits, and reach our goals in no time. It is called if-then planning, and you can learn how to use it here!
Motivation for Pursuing Your Biggest Goals
We all have big dreams. We all have those incredible visions of an ideal life that warm our heart and make us glow from the inside out.
For some of us, those big dreams are what fuel our energy each day. They’re what pull us out of bed a few hours earlier than necessary so we can start making our goals a reality.
For others of us, however, we tend to shove those dreams out of the picture. They sit just outside our tunnel vision waiting patiently for us to pursue them. And while we know those dreams are there, we nevertheless remind ourselves to “be realistic” and “get our head out of the clouds.”
If this latter scenario sounds a bit too familiar, then check out this post on dreaming big and reaching for your goals today.
