How To Make and Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions!

By Shannon | Posted in Continental Happenings on Friday, January 5th, 2018 at 7:33 PM

The first week of 2018 is down and for some that means a feeling of accomplishment because the resolutions are still going strong. But for others, there might be feelings of discouragement because it just seems too difficult to stick to them. We want to help you accomplish the goals you’ve set yourself for 2018, so we’re going to go through some tips for making -and keeping- your New Year’s resolutions!

  1. Set a doable goal
    Sometimes we set ourselves a goal that is just out of our reach, so start small and make sure it’s something you can accomplish!
  1. Create a plan
    Use a vision board, write it down, find an accountability partner, anything that will help you stick to your goal will help. Think about where you are now and what you need to do to get to your goal, and devise a plan to get there.
  2. Don’t stress if you fall off track
    We’re only human and falling off track does not mean you have failed! Repeat after me, you have not failed! Just pick yourself back up and start over. You have 365 days to get to your goal; that’s 365 chances to start over and push harder this time because you will accomplish everything you set your mind to.
  3. Find a community
    Having a support group, accountability partner, cheering squad, or whatever you would like to call it is very helpful to accomplish your goals. If you find a group of people that are working towards a similar or same goal, you are more likely to succeed.

 

We hope these tips have been helpful and we look forward to hearing about your New Year’s resolutions!

P.S. If one of your resolutions is to find a car, check out our new and used inventory!

 

Happy 2018!

 

Driven to Care 2017

By Shannon | Posted in Continental Happenings on Tuesday, December 12th, 2017 at 9:14 PM

On 2011, John and Herman Weinberger decided it would be a great idea to give back to the community by donating eight used cars to those in need. On Thursday, December 7th, we had the seventh annual Driven to Care event where once again, each store from the Continental Motors Group donated a used car to facilitate transportation for those who need it.

Continental Motors Group has partnered with Loaves and Fishes of Naperville and its CARES program to select the eight individuals in need of a vehicle. Recipients have a job and can pay for insurance, gas and maintenance but they can’t afford to buy a car or get approved for a loan.

Every year, the event keeps getting better and this year’s was no exception. We saw lots of happy tears, thankful hearts, and families that were given the opportunity to move forward in life. This event always reminds us of the true meaning of the holidays, and we are so incredibly happy we got to live these happy moments with wonderful people. Even the children present were very grateful for the chance to have a more reliable and safe transportation method!

It was truly an emotional event, and we are very thankful we get the opportunity to give back to the community and hope others can join us in giving back.
