How To: Stay Motivated

Short days and long nights, welcome to winter belles, but just because the temperature drops doesn’t mean your mojo has to! So, get in gear and lets stay motivated after all tis the season!

Set a Goal: It’s always great to have a set goal in mind. So if you’re goal is to drop ten pounds or become Miss USA this year get it in your head that you can do it and start your game plan. Starting out with a specific goal in mind is beneficial because it helps you to create a strategy that will be relevant in achieving your immediate dreams! Plus, having a goal in mind will help you feel better about your self and life!

Be Realistic: Setting goals is easy but obtaining them is way more difficult. So if you’re setting a reasonable goal obviously you’re more likely to achieve it. If you’re setting an unattainable goal you will set yourself up for failure and that’s detrimental when you aim to achieve other things in the future. So be realistic belles and keep in mind that understanding exactly what you’re capable of is half the battle!

Tell a Friend: The best way to stay motivated is to have someone else remind you of why you wanted to obtain your goal in the first place. Plus you’ll be even more motivated to achieve what you’re setting out do rather than brag to your friend about your inabilities!

Time-line it: Set a date or a month in which you plan on having completed your goal, that way you’ll be less likely to fall off track or procrastinate. Those ten pounds will not lose themselves if you don’t keep them in check. So nix your goal in the butt and let’s get motivated!

Just Believe: If you believe in yourself then you can do this! If you have confidence in yourself others will as well! So stay motivated by keeping a positive attitude!

Hope this helps you achieve every single goal on your bucket lists belles! Remember anything is possible!

    Nice post. I especially agree with your “tell a friend” point – it’s so important to have someone to be accountable to when we are pursuing our goals.

    For any of your readers who are really into goal setting, they may want to download a free e-book about the EASIER Method of Goal Achievement – they can get it at

    Thanks again for the post, and have a great day!
