When setting a goal, it sometime helps to “take a picture” either literally or figuratively.
If you set a goal of buying a new house consider taking a picture of your dream house and put it in a spot so you can see it each day.
If you set a goal of losing 40 pounds, take a picture of someone who is a similar body type as you but who is at your ideal weight and make sure you can see it each day.
While it’s good to set goals and to put it in writing, if you can see a picture of your goal each day, it will help keep you motivated.
Have a great day!
