It’s never too late to start a new month, new goals to spark motivation again. The difference between the people that do something and the people that don’t do something is that the people that do something, do something.
The beauty of a new month is that it can act as an ending or a fresh new beginning in life. Sometimes you may wish that you can erase what happened last month or even wish that the month will never end.
But without a plan or new month goals, it will be that much more challenging to achieve your goals. Make each new month be a reflection of the greatness you’ve achieved in the previous month.

NEW MONTH MOTIVATION
If you’ve been in a slump or think that new resolutions are only meant for the new year, then I am assuming you have experienced some stark disappointments about not achieving large goals. Don’t wait until the proverbial new year’s resolution season. You can start right now. As a matter of fact, you don’t even have to wait until next month. Why not set new goals now? All it takes is a shift in your mindset.
By developing a willingness (a hope, if you will) to start new, it doesn’t matter where you are in life. I believe that simply by cultivating a culture of trusting in God and believing in His goodness in your life, you can not only find victory but also healing.
Some of us have been a bit jaded for more reason than one. It is important to learn how to let go, forgive, and trust God. I understand that this is much easier said than done. Change doesn’t mean it will happen overnight. Healing takes time but you can start by doing something now.
It is important to exchange the negativity in your life and self-affirm yourself. If you are looking for inspiration on how to do this, check out my series on powerful affirmations including:

NEW GOALS NEW MINDSET
If I wasn’t clear, the first step in creating a new mindset is trusting in God. The second step is self mental care.
Affirmations are powerful ways to combat negativity and defeat. A powerful key that will help you not only maintain your new mindset but also improve on your self esteem is reminding yourself of positive truths.
Now that we have discussed the first two practical steps in creating a new mindset, how do you create new goals?
You must learn to plan.
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist nor do you have to own a complicated day planner. Creating a plan can be as simple as writing down your top ten things you want to accomplish for that month. Once you’ve created your top goals for the month, break those down into smaller achievable goals that you can complete each day.
For example, one of my biggest new month goals is to lose weight and get healthy. If I am only thinking about losing weight but not making tangible steps every day, it will be nearly impossible to achieve my dreams. So, everyday I will start off by making smaller goals such as drinking at least 2 liters of water, walking 10,000 steps, and eating at least 3 hours before bed.
Write these goals down and place them in a common place that you will see everyday such as the bathroom mirror, refrigerator door, or the wallpaper on your smartphone. These visual reminders will help you think twice, stay motivated, and remind you that you can do it.
You can use this same method for larger, much costlier goals such as purchasing a home, finding a job, or even having kids.
Once you have created these tangible steps, it is crucial that you track your progress. If your goal is to play less games or watch less TV on your phone, you can track your screen time.
If you fail or simply can’t fulfill the goals for the day, it’s okay. Believe it or not, it really is okay. Tomorrow is a new day and you can start over. There is grace.
I’m not saying that this gives one license to justify laziness or be nonchalant about their actions; rather, when you find conviction, it is important to learn from your mistakes and move on quickly without making the same mistakes over and over again.
One of the ways that I track my goals is having a journal. I like all my tech gadgets, so my journal is on my phone. Anytime I have a free moment, I simply write down my thoughts and keep myself in check to help me throughout the week.
NEW MONTH NEW GOALS NEW BLESSINGS
The key is to never give up.
Vision can always change, but don’t give up on what is most important such as your faith, health, and relationships.
You are not alone and I believe that God has a purpose for each person on this planet. I have a relationship with Jesus and believe that He wants to bless us more than we can even imagine. There is a love that is so powerful, so penetrating, so passionate that it is never too late to start over. It is never too late to start now.
There are blessings all around us if we choose to take that leap of faith and go for it.
My pastor once told me that if I can achieve my dreams all by myself then my dream is too small.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. I encourage you to reach out to your friends and loved ones to keep you accountable to provide support. Remember, you are not alone.
What are your goals? I dare you to dream. I dare you to believe. I dare you to see how good God can be in your life if you let Him.
