We have spent considerable time discussing goals during the month of January. So how are you doing with your goals?
Did you know, most people give up on the goals made in January by the beginning of February. I recently read in the business news that according to U.S. News, approximately 80% of resolutions and goals fail by the second week of February.
So, my friend, the odds are against you. But you are different than the average Joe and you can be a member of the 20% that keeps working to make their goals a reality.
If you are already on the right track and working towards your goal, keep the momentum going and pat yourself on the back for being one of the few who are still working towards their goals.
If you gave up in January, it is a new month and you can start over again. Don’t let a little setback freeze you in failure. Start working toward that goal again. Remember it isn’t how many times you fail but how many times you get back up and keep trying.
Whatever goal you set, increased sales, meet a quota of customer leads contacted, new suppliers interviewed, or even a personal goal like losing weight or exercising can still be successful. Just don’t give up. If you’ve dropped the ball, pick it up and keep going.
Whether you are starting over or making continuous strides towards your goals, you can still be a winner.
