Monday December 31, 2018
It's the last day of 2018 and if you are like me, you are enjoying some time to reflect on 2018. What worked, what didn't and what you'd like to achieve in 2019.
While this exercise is powerful because it gives you clarity that will make moving forward easier, there's one piece that you absolutely do not want to leave out of your 2019 goals.
Once you look at your top ideas for next year ask yourself this important question:
which of these are going to stretch me into who I want to become?
And if you don't know who you want to become, start here:
- Who do I want to be next year?
- What are the qualities I really want to exude?
- How do I want to show up for myself, my family, my friends, my clients?
- How do I want to move through the world?
- What do I stand for?
- What do I stand against?
- How will being this person change my life?
These are important questions you'll want to ask yourself as you are finalizing your goals for 2019 and here's why:
Studies show that with us glorious humans, if it doesn't move you internally, you won't move externally - at least not very far.
Meaning, if your goals are just around money (outward movement), you may be motivated for a while, but it won't give you enough gusto to really keep going when things get tough (and yes, things WILL get tough at some point when you are on the path to your goals).
You'll need something much more powerful pulling you than money.
⭐ your vision
⭐your why and
⭐who you are becoming in the world.
(these are all inward movements)
Whatever it is, it needs to MOVE you, shake you, excite you and make you want to say, 'this is an EXCELLENT reason for me to keep going'!
When you find that kind of why and you combine it with who you are becoming, your business can only move in the direction you want it to!
Over this week, I hope that you take some time to reflect on these questions and create goals that inspire you to your true greatness. Because remember, if you have a dream in your heart you have absolutely everything you need within you to make it happen.
