The Year Of You

new year

As we begin the New Year, everyone has new goals and aspirations that they want to take form. However, within a couple of months or even weeks you are back to your old self.

Many people, like myself, just had these goals inside their own head. Then one year, something magical happened. I started writing the goals down on an index card and read it aloud to myself. I would read it and then reread it again out loud as soon as I would wake up in the morning and once before I went to bed every night. Going to bed and waking up thinking about your goal works wonders, whether it’s about getting that new promotion at work or finally getting in shape. When you read your goal aloud every day, it is always on your mind. There’s something powerful that happens when you take your goal to paper.

Something that also helps is setting a deadline for when you want to achieve your goal within the current year. Make sure you give yourself adequate time to achieve your goal. Every Sunday, review your progress of how close you are to achieving your goal. Spend about thirty minutes recalling what steps you have taken the previous week to achieve your goal. If you want to lose twenty pounds this year, it’s amazing when you start to see results. Even if you only lost one pound the week before, it can be an encouragement and push you to lose more pounds the next week! This can make a big goal seem small when you break it down into simple steps.

With this goal setting process, you can even have up to ten goals at a time if you’re feeling ambitious! Usually no more than ten goals is good, as you don’t want to overwhelm yourself.

If you decide to set more than one goal, focus on the categories of your health, finance, and lifestyle you want to achieve. A goal for finance could be a set amount of money you want to be making, but don’t sell yourself short! You can achieve a lot more than you think could ever be possible if you break your goal down into little steps. A goal for lifestyle could be spending more time with the family. Sometimes work can hectic and you can accidentally neglect those who you love the most. If you constantly focus on your goal of spending more time with the ones you love, it will come into form.

Start this year off right by setting goals you wish to see in your life! Don’t worry if you don’t achieve your goals right away, just keep working on them. As long as you keep reviewing them each and every week, you will see the progress that you are making. Always remember, there is nothing that you cannot do in this life as long as you set your mind to it! Before you know it, you will be knocking out goals left and right. This year is going to be the most amazing year of your life!
