how to be your own “goals”

Between Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, magazines, television, and really the whole internet in general, there is this idea of “goals”. The photos and articles that we see become expectations that we try to keep up with. Rather than focusing on other people and where they are in their life, focus on you and become your own “goals”…

  • Get fit, healthy, and on track. Exercise is incredibly important, and it just makes you feel good. Eating healthy is also a very impactful lifestyle choice, as it can help your mood, your body, and your mind.
  • Find what inspires you to work hard, not what inspires you to lay in bed and cry about the fact that you don’t look like someone in a photo or that you don’t have your life as together as other people. You can get there, you can do it, and it all starts with one step.
  • Get your life together. It isn’t difficult to make a to-do list for the week or to find a moment to sit down and enter events into the calendar in your phone. Try new methods of organization until you discover the one that best suits your needs.
  • Take advantage of every single opportunity you’re given. If you have the choice between doing nothing and doing something, go.
  • Be who you want. Not one single thing or person can stop you from being yourself, and from the person you want to be.
  • Relax. There is a time and a place for everything, you have the same amount of hours in a day that Albert Einstein had, and you will accomplish everything, as long as you are organized with it.
  • Find what works for you and what doesn’t. Certain patterns, habits, and routines might work well for other people, but maybe you require different things.
  • Be open to change. One set routine, method of planning, or an affirmation might work very well for you over an extended period of time, but you are a consistently evolving human being. Your ideas, emotions, thoughts, and feelings change all the time. Allow yourself some freedom and give yourself the okay to change.

Why start tomorrow when you can just start today?
