As we start the New Year does it leave you feeling energised and excited about the months ahead or flat and unmotivated?
The date of 1st January is irrelevant as it only represents the limitations of time that we have put in place. However there is something to be said about having ideas of what you want to get out of life. At times it may be okay to go with the flow and drift through life although there is a danger that others will then influence your choices.
When we set out our own aspirations, dreams and goals then we are more likely to achieve them. It has been proven that if you write out or share your goals then success of reaching your goal is greatly increased.
Just keeping a thought in your mind is probably not going to be enough; action needs to happen along with support and encouragement from others. It is easy to get side tracked by internal doubts and worries and these can be used as an excuse to either not get started or to give up on your dreams. As explained in my video here – when we reach the end of our life it will be the things that we haven’t done that we will regret.
There are several ways to help support the first part your achievement. Write them down and put them somewhere that you can see them every day. Instead of writing, depict your aspirations visually in a vision board placing it as a screen saver or a poster.
If you are not sure what you want to do you may like to do this exercise of listing what you want/have/don’t want and don’t have by using this template. Once you have completed the columns turn the “don’t want” into what do you want instead? This will help you to start identifying your goals.
Create a Be/Do/Have list – without judgement or preconceptions keep adding to your list over a few weeks. Are there any themes? Is there something in there that you have always wanted to do?
Are you somebody that starts and then gets stuck? Remind yourself why this goal is really important to you – what are you going to gain from it, how is it going to affect your life? Remember 90% of achieving goals is knowing why it is important to you, 10% is how you will achieve it. If you are a champion procrastinator lean how to use EFT or Tapping to break down those blocks.
These are just a few suggestions that will help you get on your way of creating a year that you can look back on with pride, contentment, enjoyment and satisfaction.
Have an adventurous, exciting, fun-filled and challenging 2019!
