Many of us don’t think about our goals for 2016 until the new year but December is the best time to get a jump start so you’re soaring into the new year on fire and ahead of the game. Here are some practical tips to help you thrive in the new year…
1. Leave the past in the past
It’s important that we learn how to get over regrets and work through what may have been holding us back from achieving our goals in the past. It’s time to start the new year with a clean slate!
2. Happiness and contentment
Joy and true fulfillment starts with being happy, thankful and content right now, in the moment. That doesn’t mean we’re settling for our current circumstances, but it puts us in a place of appreciation and gratitude to attract more of what we want in our lives.
3. Set realistic goals
We often don’t think about how our goals line up with our beliefs and values but this plays a part in how likely we are to achieve them. We also need to strike a balance between safe and stretch goals.
4. How do I achieve my goals?
This is a combination of writing down your goals, identifying what you will need to make them a reality, and having a solid plan to increase the likelihood of success.
5. How do you know you’ve achieved success?
Very simply, what is your success criteria? How will you measure your achievement and what does that mean to you?
6. How to get and stay motivated and on track
Why are those goals important to you? What is unique to you that will keep you motivated? How do you identify challenges ahead of time and have a plan to overcome them? How do you stay focused until you achieve success?
7. Celebrate (my favorite!)
How will you celebrate your big and small wins? Celebrating will keep the momentum going and will increase your confidence and keep you motivated and excited to keep going.
