- Put up pictures of your goals- cut out pictures in magazines or print them out then paste those photos some place you often see. For example your goal is to lose weight, paste some pictures of your ideal body somewhere so that you’ll be reminded all the time of your goals and that you have to keep up with it till the end.
Your goals will definitely help you in the future if you start it right and finish it well. Do what it takes to motivate yourself and improve your life now.
