Welcome to the end of our 7-Part Series on How to Set New Years Goals You’ll Actually Achieve!
If you haven’t had a chance to catch up on all 7 lessons yet, you can do so here:

And that brings us here… to part 7… which is a big one.
Our final strategy in our series on how to set New Years goals you will actually achieve is to never… no matter what… never, ever quit.
It’s so simple, and so powerful.
The bigger your goals, the more often you will be tempted to throw in the towel and walk away.
Big goals come with big responsibility. They require us to evolve. To change habits and beliefs about ourselves, others and the world around us. They require us to become more. And if becoming the very best version of yourself was easy, everyone would do it!
The biggest piece of advice I can give you is simply don’t give up. When you get knocked down, take a minute… take an hour, or even a day if you need to, but don’t quit. Failure isn’t falling down. It’s deciding not to get back up.
You win every time you rise. And with every win you become stronger… you become wiser… you become just a little bit better.
I’ll wrap up this series with one of my favorite quotes of all time, entitled The Man in the Arena:
“It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,
or where the doer of deeds could have done better.
The credit belongs to the man in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs, who comes short again and again,
because there is no effort without error or shortcoming;
but who does actually strive to do the deeds;
who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,
so that his place shall never be with those cold
and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
— Theodore Roosevelt
