Can’t believe that the end of another year has arrived…..Boy this one has flown past or is that just in retrospect to my ever increasing years of age! As I sit and contemplate what’s in store for 2015, I find myself experiencing the familiarity of “GOAL SETTING”, that awkward, uncomfortable feeling, that voice in our head that reverberates that word, ‘SHOULD’. I freely admit that in past years I too have spontaneously set random goals at the beginning of a new year (because that’s what we ‘should’ do) and then just as quickly forgotten them and not paid them any service. I wonder how many of us actually set out with all good intentions but then this thing called life takes over and we our back doing the same old.
As humans we are creatures of habit and unless our goals have any meaning or significance we unconsciously continue with our daily lives. Over the past year I have learnt a lot as a Life Coach, and found that my previous attempts at goal setting were wonderful quests for life that inevitably got lost in the depths of my desk drawer. I now understand the planning that needs to accompany these goals but most importantly they must be in alignment with my highest values. By doing this my goals have passion, power and purpose and I am more driven and certainly more inspired to achieve them.
So what are your goals for 2015? Will your goals inspire and fuel you through the year? Want to know how to kick your Goals off with a bang? If the answer is YES, then here are my top 10 tips to successful goal setting and achieving the life you want.
