How to Build Positive Reinforcements

Stay positive

Staying on track with your priorities means staying focused. In this new year 2016 you need to stay focus. You can make it easier for yourself to keep that focus if you build some positive reinforcements into your day-to-day life.

Here are reinforcement tips to use in support of the priorities you have chosen:

  1. Join others who have priorities and goals similar to yours and those who are supporting them.
  1. Surround yourself with reinforcing statements, reminders, and post-on notes so that you don’t loose sight of what you have already deemed important.
  1. Prepare a budget to help determine exactly what it will take or cost to honor your priorities and the goals that you’ve chosen to support them.
  1. Report to someone. Have some significant persons, serving as a coach or watchdog to ensure that you do what you said you were going to do.
  1. Keep your action steps bit-size. There is no value in choosing goals that are difficult to achieve that you’re not honoring the associated priority at all.
  1. Set up a series of small rewards so that you’re naturally reinforcing the behaviour in which you’ve chosen to engage.
  1. Visualize the goal everyday. Always, on a daily basis, that you play the goal in your mind’s eye.
