It seems like, every year, we set ourselves resolutions that fizzle into non-existence over the first few months, or that we simply do not chase after wholeheartedly. Even if this is how you'd describe your approach to your goals so far this year, it's not too late to pick up the pieces and get yourself into gear. Here's a few ways for you to keep yourself in check.

1. Create Daily Rituals

Irregardless of how much spontaneity you'd like in your life - adherence to daily routine is what will enable you to gain perspective on your spontaneous desires. Optimal levels of focus will not be possible if you do not follow a routine that holds you within the boundaries of productivity. Sustain healthy eating and sleeping patterns, make sure you schedule breaks to give you the energy you need to take on all daily challenges, and make time for personal satisfaction.

2. Don't set too many large goals

Having any more than two goals, and you will be setting yourself up to complete these goals in a mediocre fashion, or simply to fail. Do not set up too many grand goals to avoid overwhelming yourself and leaving yourself disappointed. Every month, keep check of your goals by thinking about what it is you've done up until that point in the direction of their realisation.

3. Don't leave things uncompleted

One of the only ways to remain transfixed on your ambitions is by finishing everything you begin. Do not throw in the towel on a task you've started. Not only will it reduce your mental strength, but it'll diminish your self-confidence. Stay motivated and always try your hardest finish each and every task that you begin. In life, success is frequently dictated by a singular rule. Without trying your hardest, you'll not reach the greatest potential outcome.

4. Give yourself some daily alone time

Irregardless of how active the life you lead is, spending some time with yourself and your thoughts is fundamental to your focus and self-growth. While many people enjoy spending time with family and friends, constant immersion in your social life can lead to an inevitable emotional burnout.If you push yourself often and too hard, it's only a matter of time before your mind or/and body will suffer. Make time for the things you love. Go to a dance class, go for a walk, meditate, listen to your favourite songs, read a book, or anything else that makes you happy.

5. Know how to avoid distractions

In the moment, checking our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram is enjoyable. It allows us to feel connected and up-to-date with our friends. If we are checking it every minute however, social media can be destructive in the sense that it inhibits us from doing the important things. Ensure that you finish each and every difficult task you have for the day before allowing yourself to spend time on Facebook, which can easily turn into procrastination.

6. Don't multitask

While multitasking is a good skill to master, the truth is that you are unable to do your best at everything when you are doing many things at the same time. Focusing on one task means that you will commit yourself wholly to it and you can expect the end product to be of a higher quality.

7. Have goal buddies

When you surround yourself with individuals that have goals not dissimilar to your own, you will motivate and encourage one another to remain transfixed on what you'd told yourself you'd achieve.
