What’s the best way to start a new habit?
That’s because when you’re doing something for the first time, it can be easy to look at how well everyone else is doing. Setting an internal goal narrows the competition to you vs. you.
What exactly is an internal goal?
It’s something you directly have control over.
For example, when I started going to the gym, if I could make it to the gym four times per week… that was a win. It wasn’t about how I looked or how much I could press. It was just, can I form the habit and be consistent with it?
If the answer is yes, you’ve won.
So if you’re looking to make progress… set an internal goal today.
