When a new year rolls around, many people make resolutions in the moment, mostly based on impulse, says Entrepreneur Network partner Mike Phillips. The truth is, in order to properly achieve your goals, you have to create a solid plan.

After making these goals, make sure you are celebrating the little steps you are taking to get there. This may involve looking at your own progress and blocking out outside noise. Celebrate your wins and continue to recognize the progress you are making.
