"Old ways do not open new doors"
Setting goals is imperative to realising our dreams, because without setting goals our dreams are just wishes.
A wish is a hope or desire for something to happen, which is a nice thought, but in reality, is not going to manifest your dream life. The only way to build your dream life is to set goals and actions to bring your dreams to fruition.
Before we set goals and change our lives, it is important that we first review and examine what our life is like now in order to determine what is and isn’t working for us. This may sound obvious, but often we do not know what exactly is not working other than the fact that we feel unsatisfied. When we do not know exactly what is not working, we do not know how to make changes and consequently we end up feeling stuck, in a rut, and spinning our wheels.
As we work to understand our life desires and think about building goals for the future it’s a useful exercise to review the previous 12 months to reflect on key achievements, learning’s and challenges.
Often people wait until the end of the year to build new goals, but my thoughts are why wait? The start of a new year is not going to make us anymore successful in achieving our goals than if we start working on our goals now….
So, let’s begin with a review of your previous 12 months… download and complete the attached exercise and then check back in next week to learn how to set and achieve goals.
