Recognizing, Achieving Goals

“The more reasons you have for achieving your goal,
the more determined you will become.”   Brian Tracy

Is one of your goals to be healthier and/or to help the community?

Then on Saturday, Sept. 24 at our 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run, you could achieve both goals.

The 5K starts at 8 a.m. with check-in starting at 7 a.m. at Two Strike Park, 5107 Rosemont Ave. in La Crescenta. The cost is only $20 that includes a T-shirt.  This is co-sponsored with the Crescenta Valley Drug & Alcohol Prevention Coalition and part of the proceeds will be donated to the Rosemont Middle School afterschool sports program. You can sign up and pay through our website www.LaCrescenta.org.

On Associatedcontent.com, writer Debline gave five easy steps to keep achieving your goals.

1. Make goals that are achievable. If you are currently a couch potato who is 25 pounds overweight, then it’s nearly a sure thing that you will fail at a resolution that says something like, “Climb Mount Everest by the end of the year.” 2. Be clear about your goals. If you’re not sure what your goal is, that will be reflected in your resolution. 3. Write them down. Writing things down serves two purposes – it cements the goal in your mind and it gives you something to look back on to remind you what you aspire to. 4. Think carefully about your goal before you commit to it. If you want to be serious, you must be frank with yourself about those goals. 5. Finally, have fun with your goals. Put something really fun on your list like, “Finally learn how to make sushi (take a class)” or “Take an all-girls road trip to Vegas.” You might hold the fun thing until you complete other goals on your list like losing weight or getting out of debt. But putting something fun and frivolous on your goal list will give you something to look forward to as you do the hard work of improving your life.

If a goal is to meet new people and receive more business, then joining us at our business mixer on Oct. 12 at Bonners Equipment Rental, co-sponsored by Berolina Bakery, is a great way to work towards that goal. Our business mixers usually have 50 to 60 other business owners and community members who attend and are a great way to add more contacts to your lists. It is also a great way to show your support for businesses like Bonners Rentals and Berolina’s Bakery who both do so much for our community.

Hope to see you at one or all of our events soon.

Important dates: Sept. 24 – Running the Foothills 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run at Two Strike Park; Oct. 12 – Bonner’s Equipment Rentals/Berolina Bakery Business mixer; Nov. 9 – Fourth Annual Taste of the Foothills.
