Whether your New Year’s resolution includes eating healthier, getting to the gym more often, or simply creating more time for yourself, it’s all too easy to let these ideals slip away come February. Life happens, and sometimes what was once a pronounced, surefire goal becomes just a distant memory only a short while later.

Guess what? This totally doesn’t have to be the case. Contrary to popular belief, you can rock your New Year’s resolutions all year round. With a bit of grit and determination, plus the help of the below tips, you’ll be on your way to progress and transformation in no time — no matter what it is your aspiration may be.

1. Set Realistic Goals

When our founders came to America and first opened Zweigle’s, it’s unlikely that they knew the company would become a household name. They believed in their product but, like everyone else, they started from the bottom and expanded as time went on and they experienced success. Rome wasn’t built in a day! Don’t be afraid to start small, and work your way up to something bigger.

2. Track Your Progress

Create a road map for your success by continually tracking your progress throughout the year. This will help not only serve as a reminder of how far you have come, but it will also ensure you’re moving forward and making positive change.

3. Reward Yourself

Everybody needs a pick-me-up every once in awhile. Set milestones for throughout the year that correlate with reaching the bigger picture, and don’t forget to reward yourself along the way for your hard work and progress! May we suggest a juicy Pop Open or one of our flavorful chicken sausage varieties?

4. Stick to Your Guns

When it comes to a long-term goal, the key to success really is just riding it out. There will be days that you’ll feel like quitting, but pushing through the tough times will be what separates you from the rest of the pack.

5. Stay Positive

What goes hand in hand with a steel resolve? A positive attitude. It’s challenging to stick with any resolution and get through the trying moments without a bit of optimism. Though it’s easier said than done, take a look back at your progress so far as you go through the year and try to remember how close you are to reaching your end goal.
