A new year is like a fresh start. The perfect time to commit to doing something outstanding. So how are you doing so far?
It may be too early to get any measurable results of success just yet, but I know from experience it doesn’t take long to get off track. If you are committing to resolutions, restructuring or just need to reboot your goals, take a deep breath, clear your head and re-focus before those bad habits return and begin snowballing in the wrong direction of your set achievements.
Break Down Daunting Goals into Attainable, Bite-size Chunks
Whether you want to exercise and eat more veggies or try your hand at a new business, any big task can be daunting. Set you sights high, but then break down the goal into logical steps. If you are planning a year-long goal, for example, divide it up into 12 easy-to-digest mini-goals. Then you’ll have something more attainable to aim for each month.
Would you like to lose 120 pounds this year? That may seem impossible at first glance, but try breaking it down into segments. Maybe monthly? Now, you only have to lose 10 pounds per month. Still not easy by any means, but 10 pounds seems doable than 120. Don’t you agree?
And before you starting adding the months up (10 + 10 + …), simply stop. Focus on the current month or task at hand. Don’t focus on the overall goal. If you have a bad day, don’t throw out the whole year, month or even week. Start again tomorrow. You have the rest of the month — the rest of the year — to reach your destination. There is never a better time than now to get back on track.
Start Small for a Smart Start
Dreaming of starting your own business? Coming up with a business name, getting your first business license and completing the other first steps might seem overwhelming for some. Now pile on accountants, budgets, advertising and more and the costs start to add up quick. Did you think about staff, benefits, insurance and leasing office space? (And we’ve only scratched the surface…)
If you want to start your own business, start small. Why not stick your toe into the entrepreneurial waters before diving head first into a big pool of startup costs, overwhelming tasks and headaches?
Direct selling may be your answer.

They have received numerous awards for growth and ethical business practices, been named the number one consumer products company on the 2010 Inc. 500 list, appeared on the 2010 Direct Selling News Global 100 list of top direct selling companies and received both the DSA’s 2010 Success Award and the DSA’s 2009 Rising Star Award.
