It’s the New Year and that means for some, New Year Resolutions. I would like to help you succeed with your resolutions with a challenge.

My hope with this blog, is to help you be successful and not want to quit within the first month. That can be frustrating and off-putting with your goal. That is the last thing I want for you.

I wrote a blog last year about goal setting, Goal Setting: How to Reach Results. If you haven’t read that, I recommend that you do.

For this blog, I won’t repeat what I said with that last blog. Instead, this will be a challenge.

A 30-day challenge that will help you create new habits that will last forever.  Most people will create a goal and have no plan of action to achieve that goal. Without a plan of action, they make to many changes hoping something will stick, a recipe for failure.

Take on this challenge and change your life forever.


This can work with any goal you have created, and I want you to think of one actionable step that you can do everyday that will help you succeed.

I want you to think small.

With this small action, I want you to make it a non-negotiable to complete everyday for 30 days.

Here is an example:

I want to read more for this New Year, so my small action step is to read 5 pages every day. I can do more if I want to, but I must read 5 pages minimum.

It’s small and very easy to do without it overwhelming me. I will do this every day for 30 days.

The goal is to slowly add on from there. The next 30 days I will read 6 pages everyday as my new goal. Its non-negotiable, so schedule it and set a reminder for yourself.

This can work with any goal.

You want to lose fat?

Think of the smallest, actionable step that you can do everyday to make that happen.

Some ideas:

  • Drink more water
  • Eat more fruits
  • Eat more veggies
  • Plan meals
  • Walk more
  • Strength train
  • Quality sleep

Use some of these ideas and think of something you can do everyday and make it non-negotiable.

I will drink one cup of water as soon as I wake up.

Boom, easy!

Next 30 days, I will 1 cup of water when I wake up, and before lunch.

Boom, easy!

Slow and steady will win the race.

Is this going to be a very slow approach?

Yes, but it will be sustainable, and very easy to make these small changes into lifelong habits.

That is the goal. Forever changes.
