- Hi, no I'm not Dave,

I'm Jeff Nicholson.

And in this video I want to share with you

three tips to help you reflect on

whereabouts you are with your goals,

because we're all about self reflection

to work on what it is that
you're wanting to achieve,

and sometimes to come back inward

to identify where you are.

Tip number one.

Hook a new habit onto an old one.

This helps you because it's something

that you're already doing.

So if it's something like journaling

or if it's something like meditation,

do it at the same time
you do a old routine.

So breakfast, you may have a
breakfast and a cup of coffee

at exactly the same time.

What you can do is use that to hook on

a brand new habit.

It helps embed, and it
helps speed up the process.

Number two.

Reward points.

What you do is you give yourself a reward

that you can give yourself
when you achieve something.

So for example, is if you
are wanting to lose weight,

a specific target weight,

when you get to that point,
you can give yourself a reward,

maybe it's to go out with
your family on a special day,

or maybe it's a treat and
you buy yourself something.

Number three.

Tell people about your goals.

Your goal should not be a secret.

If it's something that
you're wanting to achieve,

the more people you tell
will actually give you

more accountability.

And we prefer not to let anyone else down

rather than ourselves.

So by telling people,
and more people about it,

you are spreading your
accountability with people.

So a reminder, three tips.

Number one, hook your
goals onto an old habit.

Number two, reward points.

Give yourself something
to reward yourself with

when you achieve a specific point.

And number three, tell
people about your goals.

Your goal should not be a secret.

There's something that
you're wanting to achieve,

so the more people you tell,

the more likely you are to achieve it.
