Welcome to before breakfast a production of iHeartRadio.

Good morning.

This is Laura.

00:00:28 before breakfast podcast today's tip is to pursue your goals with a group so you can encourage each other and maintain motivation even when it's tempting to give up.

You probably know from experience that long-term goals, like running a marathon quitting smoking or learning a new language are easier when you're part of a community aiming for the same thing.

There are a few reasons for this first the social aspect makes your goal-directed behavior more fun.

My 10 Mile runs with my running buddy. Go quicker than 10 Mile runs done by myself Frugal Living Community share tips barter skills and passed along hand me down that can make these behaviors seem less like sacrifices and more like cool things that you do with friends.

Second group activities tend to involve scheduling you don't just randomly show up somewhere to practice French with a group of people. They all have to get together at a certain time that's obvious. But it's also a major Plus or goals are concerned designating time on your schedule for a goal vastly increases the chances that you devote time to that goal.

Recurring meetings amount to recurring deadlines for making progress.

And of course there is the accountability aspect you are running group Mike text to see where you are. If you don't show up for that Saturday morning long run knowing you need to tell your quit smoking group about that cigarette might just encourage you to do something else to combat those stressful feelings. Your career change group will ask what you've done and you will report back and they will celebrate when you hit your targets that is far more motivational then just giving yourself a pat on the back.

Groups also remind us that we don't have to solve everything ourselves when you have challenges that come up in pursuing your goal and inevitably you're going to have challenges your group can help you figure them out someone in your Frugal Living group can talk you through the process of refinancing a mortgage or finding a cheaper cell phone plan. You can benefit from other people's wisdom that allows you to Steward your time and energy for the pursuit of your goals rather than repeating research that you don't actually need to do all by yourself.

Now to be sure recognizing the benefit of a group goal and actually finding a group to pursue it are two different things. We will talk in a future episode about how to find or create an accountability group that works for you. But if you would like to make a change in life and are wondering how to do it being part of a group can be profoundly motivate knowing that others are walking alongside. You can be just the kick in the pants that you need to get things done.
