If you’re trying to make positive changes in your life, it’s important to set yourself up to succeed:
- First, set small, attainable goals. Work your way into a new habit with baby steps, and you’ll feel more successful every step of the way, and be less likely to give up.
- Next, reward your progress; for each small goal you reach, allow yourself to feel pride, and perhaps give yourself a small reward.
- Don’t forget to enlist social support! Tell the supportive people in your life what you’re attempting to acheive, and tell them of your successes. This will give you added strength, and will make it less appealing to give up (and have to explain yourself to those close to you)!
