Each new day is a new chance to celebrate your life. So, let’s start with personal goal setting.
I for one am not a big believer in resolutions, however, I am a big believer in setting personal, professional and life goals. In addition, each new year represents a new intention. Intentions are powerful as they come from our life force not from what society ensues upon us. More on that later in the blog.
Personal goals shape our vision of the future, which in turn encourages clarity of our professional goals and not the other way around. Remember, it is our happiness that leads to success, therefore, to manifest our greatest desires this year, you must feel those desires. We manifest what we feel or vibrate. Let’s get clear, excited, and inspired about our personal goals, shall we?
STEP ONE: Form your theme in 2019. In a word, how would you describe the year you want to create in 2019? For example, some of my clients have a word such as IMPACT or ACTION OR LOVE. What’s yours? Allow this to set your theme for 2019. Your theme sets the tone for your intentions.
STEP TWO: Create powerful intentions. Once you have set the tone, you can create powerful intentions and associate a goal to the personal areas in your life: Self-care, money, career, relationships, home and health. The secret or trick here is to feel what you want to feel doing what you want to be doing with joy and ease not stress and worry. Intentional practice is imagining and feeling as if you are already in the spot you want to be in! Naturally, this takes practice. There will be moments where our own resistance, negative thoughts, self-doubt and perhaps the need to heal from 2018 or previous years are lingering into the mind, body and soul. If so, I urge all of us to take care of ourselves. Taking care of you is what gives you the power to do all the things you hope to accomplish.
STEP THREE: Tap into your Life Force. The more you focus upon your strengths, with relation to achieving your personal goals, the greater the possibility of those strengths being enhanced as you are exercising your will and life force. This is where the non-physical meets the physical. Exercising positive thoughts lead to positive feelings which prompt inspirational action. The key is to be actively listening to your intuition, your GPS. So, pay attention; your GPS is what steers your life force and synergistically this force can work for you.
STEP FOUR: Invest in a planning tool. In order to make positive change and reach personal goals, I highly suggest a goal planner. The same habits, thinking and activities you have done the last five years will not get you to the inspired results you want to achieve. Writing your personal goals; breaking them down daily with a positive intention, with a measurable time frame brings results. Of which, it encourages momentum, speed, clarity, organization and productivity.
In addition, a goal planner and calendar, in written form, locks in your weekly, monthly and yearly plans into play. In addition, it forms time segmenting, which is way to block off time segments for each personal goal. Time segmenting (I teach this in the “Live Your Best Life Master Class” in detail) is what the uber successful do to create time to do what matters while productively accomplishing goals with impact.
STEP FIVE: Learn new strategies. Whether you are a solopreneur, small business owner, self-employed or corporate professional, we all can use strategies that work that lead to doing what we love more and achieving our work goals faster and easier than previously. Having worked for top Fortune 500 corporations, building billion-dollar brands, leading teams and coaching professionals for more than 20 years, I have learned the secrets to productivity and performance that not only lead to profits, but also redefine your happiness and success.
In most cases, when setting goals many do not obtain progress because, one, the psychology behind forming the goals does not uphold confidence; and two, the strategies and tools are not in place or in consistent play. You need both to achieve results.
With that said, the mindset plus the tools and strategies are here for you to shape your personal and professional goals in the upcoming “Live Your Best Life Masterclass for Transformation with Conquering Doing What You Love and Being the CEO of Your DESTINY!”
