Today I want to share a page from my website on how to set goals. Some of you have already read this and hopefully used it to set your goals for 2011. If not, take some time out this weekendd to think about what you want to achieve in 2011.
A New Year … A New You
The end of the old year and the start of the New Year is a wonderful time of year, to pause and reflect on who you are, who you want to be, discover what’s really important to you and what you want to achieve over the next year?
The period before the New Year can also be a great time for letting go of what doesn’t serve you (mentally, emotionally, and physically …. be it habits, beliefs, attitudes, people, circumstances, etc.).
Studies show that those who actually write down their goals have a much greater chance of making them happen, even if they never look at their list for the rest of the year.
Have you written your New Year’s resolutions yet?
When January 1st arrives, everyone has big dreams and ideas but they always seem to die out by the first week of February.
Let’s leave that behaviour behind in 2010 and raise the bar for 2011!
Today is the first day of the rest of your life. So why not begin designing the life you REALLY want – right here, right now!
Are you are ready to embrace 2011 with a vengeance?
So Where Do You Start?
Here is a powerful exercise to let you ready yourself to move forward into the New Year
1.Spend the last few hours of 2010, reflecting on what was.
Ask yourself, how did 2010 measure up for you?
Did you set your goals and watch them materialize?
Did you have a few obstacles get in your path?
What were some of your challenges and successes?
Make sure you celebrate your past success. So make a list of all of the wins, successes, joys, delights and breakthroughs that have happened to you in 2010.
Make a list of all of your disappointments, failures and losses.
Identify the ones you are willing to let go of and write them down on a piece of paper.
State to yourself, “I now release all old energy back to the Universe and make way for all new possibilities coming my way. And so it is.”
Take your paper and release the energy back into the Universe by burning it, burying it, or tearing into tiny bits and throwing it away.
2. Now it is time to Celebrate Your Success
I mean everything, the little stuff DOES count. It’s time to validate and take ownership of all that you have accomplished.
What have you learned about yourself and your life?
What insights have you gained?
What are you grateful for? This list might include some of the above, and/or anything else you truly appreciate about yourself, the people, the things or activities that are in your life.
There is a basic principle that whatever you appreciate and give thanks for will increase in your life.
So get a piece of paper and write down 50 things you accomplished last year.
Next, give yourself a pat on the back ! What would be a fun, special, personal thing to do for yourself in celebration of last year’s accomplishments?
How will you honour yourself? You deserve it!
Buy yourself a nice cup of coffee, sit in a bubble bath or call up a friend or associate and tell them what you accomplished. Let yourself feel good about what you accomplished – you did well!
