Happy Christmas! Welcome to the first day of our Goal Setting Workshop! The plan for the next 5 days will be to set some intentional and meaningful goals for the year, break them down into smaller monthly goals, focus on actionable tasks to do in January to reach them, and stay accountable!
Join the party on my Private Facebook Page. Each day this week, I will ask you a few questions to help you focus and plan for the year ahead. I encourage you to write your answers on a piece of paper, in a notebook or journal and even leave the responses in a comment. Writing things down helps you focus on them, remember them, gives you direction, and helps you to understand yourself and your goals a little better.
A written goal is also a powerful reminder that can keep you on the right track when you feel like quitting.
Yesterday, I asked you to think a little about what you are going to say YES to in 2018 and what you will say NO to. If you haven’t done it yet – jot your answers down somewhere (or in the comments)
Today we will do a little prep work to set yourself up to make GOOD goals with a clear focus. Life is too short to coast though and not have a meaningful focus.
I know this is a health-focused group – but life is about so much more than that (family, friends, relationships, spiritual, work, finances, recreation, environment), so keep all these aspects in mind as you answer these questions and set your goals for next year!
- Visualize where you want to be in one year and what you want this next year to look like. What would your PERFECT day be like?
(Visualizing gives you something to work towards and allows you to recognize what you want when you see it. This is why athletes visualize their win before a big game. Muhammad Ali saw himself victorious long before the actual fight. And Michael Jordan always took the last shot in his mind before he ever took one in real life.)
- What were the GOOD things from last year and 3 lessons you learned from them?
- What challenges did you experience in 2017 and what did you learn from them?
Remember: A huge part of every success story is failure. Instead of fearing failure or avoiding it all together, try embracing it.
Consider each failure a learning experience and expect to fail at new things. Let failure be a part of your journey when you try new things. Don’t let failure stand in your way. Fail enthusiastically and keep going.
If you aren’t failing every now and then, you probably are not learning much.
