For the longest time I *hated* setting goals. I tend to be a perfectionist, and so goals were hard. They created opportunities for failure, and that didn’t mesh well with my personality.
Overtime, I’ve had to retrain my brain to view goals as opportunities for growth and to recognize failures as times for learning. While setting goals still requires me to be thoughtful and intentional, I’m not quite as weary of them.
One thing that helps me when it comes to goals is when others express confidence in my abilities or encourage me. Positive quotes can help with this a lot too. Check out these quotes for New Years to help you make the most of your year!
