Makeover Monday 7.0

Photobucket
Ever heard of the Harvard Goal study? It was an interesting study to see which new graduates would become most successful in life. And guess what. The 3% of the 1979 class who had clear written goals were ten times more successful than the others. Want to start a book? Get that six pack? Score a fulfilling career? Write it down. It works. Those results probably won't happen tomorrow or even next week. But with determination and persistence, it'll happen before you know it.
PhotobucketYou have one life to live. And since everything always works out in the end, why not make this Monday exceptional? Don't be afraid to stand out of the crowd.

  3. Yes, I heard about the study! I confirm that writing down goals works. Vision boards can also help. xo

  5. I honestly can't believe that my brother who seems to read every study that's ever been done hasn't told me that. Maybe he knew I'd use it against him :P I have an 'ideas of what I might do one day' book. Perhaps I should get one to go with it that's an 'actual goals' book :P Happy Monday Cathy! As usual, this post brightened my day :) Rhi xx

    PS. I loved Jules et Jim. Such a typical French movie with the bizarre plot though :P

    1. Isn't it a great study? Yes, turn your book into the 'ideas that I will make happen' book :) You can totally do that! I love your sweet comments, Rhi - those always brighten my day :) I'll have to check out that movie, then - - gotta love french foreign films, they've got that 'je ne sais quoi' ;)

  6. I love that idea it makes sense when u think about it if you write it down its always there and you cant just cast it off! something I do sometimes is I write fun or encouraging post-it notes and put them in high traffic places.of.my house! haha I actually have one that says.my goal weight with a big heart around it stuck to my cabinet door to remind me to snack healthy!lol beautiful monday inspiration as always! have a lovely day sweet girl<3

    1. That's sooo awesome you put those notes in high traffic areas! I used to do that with positive messages like 'You are beautiful' and 'You are strong' to fully believe those statements, increase my self-confidence. They totally work!! I always appreciate your sweet words, Tara. Thank you so much :) Have a beautiful and productive week!

    1. Congrats Julia!!! It is a great reminder of the type of results you want to see from the type of actions you put forth. Keep at it! :)

  14. Great post! I agree that writing down your goals makes you more accountable and somehow makes them more real. Also breaking bigger goals down into smaller achievable goals works too! xx

    1. I agree with you 100%. It turns those ideas floating in one's head into something concrete..something you can actually cross of the list! I'm a huge believer in smaller goals too - especially for fitness. :)

    1. Xixia, it's nice to see you here! Thank you for your kindness :) Right on for keeping a journal. I used to always carry a planner with me but as of late, I just love my mini composition journal which is more free-spirited. I like to write everything down and motivates me to move forward!

      When I first saw that sheep pic, it made me giggle instantly!
