Debbie Catt, managing director of Cattconsulting.com, said that people should not only have one target on their horizon and give up if they fail to achieve it straight away.
Instead, they need to take "baby steps" and set many small goals that can be ticked off as they are reached, which will give the individual a better sense of achievement, she added.
"So where is it you want to go? What is the point of what you're trying to do? Work backwards, because it is much easier to work backwards from a destination and work out how you are going to get there, than start off from complete scratch," Ms Catt added.
The other important thing is to try and avoid doing things alone, as it is much easier to use any help and services available to achieve those goals, the expert added.
