Tips to set your goals for the New Year.
New Year’s is upon us and it is time to start thinking about the goals you’d like to set for 2013. Take a minute to reflect on last year and focus on what you’d like to make different for the new year.
Take some time to complete the goal setting tips below to start off 2013 on the best note yet:
Make sure the mood is set for goal-setting time. Build a fire and pour a glass of wine, sit in the middle of a grove of trees, put on some great music, or get snuggled up in your coziest sheets and pour a cup of tea. Create an environment that makes you feel good.
Focus on all the main areas of your life. We tend to set the most intense goals in the area where we want to effect the most change. We may set all our goals regarding better finances or fitness and forget to set goals in the other areas of our life. The suggested main life areas to consider goal-setting are the following:
- health and fitness
- finances and money
- primary relationships (spouses)
- family (kids and others)
- personal growth
Set yourself up for success. Create goals that are attainable. You can always increase your goal if you attain it before the year’s end. And remember not to get too serious; these are your goals. Don’t get analysis-paralysis. Get started and just let it flow.
In addition to your goals, create a wish list. List places you want to go, things you want to do and things you want to acquire in the New Year.
Imagine you are limitless. What would you want to do? Set your goals from your mind and your heart. Don’t only “think” what you need to do; think about how you “feel” about the goal. Does it feel good, happy or fun? Let your emotions be your guide.
Make sure you do it! Goal-setting is one of the most important things to do to transform your life. You may not know where all this “goal-setting stuff” will lead; all you need to know it that it is the next step on your journey of awakening in the New Year.
Here is a great tips to ensuring 2013 is your best New Year yet. Start a gratitude journal: Before going to bed, write down five things on that day that you are grateful for. It will enable you to float off to dreamland with the great feeling of gratitude and abundance.
