At the start of 2013 personal goals were put into place that would make this year different than any other. You are going to take an active stand against a social issue such as bullying or battling an addiction. You are breaking up with fast food and becoming best friends with the gym. You are going to become the next best-selling author. Then life got in the way and now you are stuck without much motivation and wondering if it’s too late to make a change this year.

Have no fear; there is a movement hitting the Internet designed to help us make those resolutions a reality! Erica Diamond is helping others achieve their goals with her "Get Off the Fence" movement. Anyone and everyone can take part in this movement. It only takes three simple steps to get started.

Every goal becomes real when it is shared with someone else. That is the starting point for this movement. Visit www.getoffthefencemovement.com and make a personal pledge to change your life. No pledge is too big or too small for this movement. A great starting point is thinking about a dream you’ve always had yet previously allowed fear to stand in the way of. You can pledge to go back to school and earn that long-desired degree. You can start a book club with friends or spend more time volunteering in your community. The sky is the limit when it comes to your personal pledge!

Every plan needs a sense of direction to be successful. Step two of the movement is to download the official app for your iPhone or android phone. This app will give you access to motivational videos and a member forum for additional support. You will be able to take your big-picture pledge goal and break it down into smaller, more manageable goals. The app allows you to track your progress throughout the year and holds you accountable for achieving your pledge goal. Each week Erica sends out a motivational message designed to keep you on the track to success.

The final step to join the "Get Off the Fence" movement sends you straight to Facebook. Once there you can ‘like’ the official movement Facebook page and quickly enter a non-judgmental world where everyone is cheering you on to make that pledge from step one a reality! It connects you to the heart of the movement. Submit a video or a photo declaration of your get off the fence pledge. View other submission declarations and gain a sense of the support that is behind you every step of the way.

Thanks to the "Get Off the Fence" movement there is no longer any excuse for anyone to not make those pesky New Year’s Resolutions a reality this year!
