By now you've had the statistics drilled into your head–a third of people who make resolutions will break them by the end of January. Make it a point to not fall into that group this year with the help of Lululemon. Throughout the month they'll be promoting the campaign #readysetgoal, to help others experience the power of goal setting for themselves. Below, some tips to get started on your to-do list from Chloe Gow-Jarrett, program manager of self-development at Lululemon.
- Set goals in present tense. State them in terms such as I am, I have, I create, I own.
- Be specific with your goals. You're placing an order to the universe, so make sure to ask for exactly what you want.
- Put a deadline on your goals, this will help spur you into action.
- Don't be afraid to set goals that are audacious. Failing 50 percent of your goals means you are really challenging yourself.
