Sheri here –
Ok, 2020 has already been a year or two long with everything that has happened. Most of it wasn’t in our plan!
The good news is that you can reset your plans. You can start where you are and redefine your goals to still make major headway on your goals and plans – your dreams.
Create SMARTER Goals
New Years resolutions are always low on my list because they almost always get abandoned early in the year.
Earlier this year, I posted a blog about creating SMARTER goals, instead of resolutions. You can check it out here.
When I’m having a bad day, I will frequently start the day over. That’s right, start the day over, even if it is late afternoon! Have you ever tried that?
You can do the same thing with your goals!
What do you want to do by the end of the year?
- Lose 5 pounds? Maybe 10?
- Pay off some debt?
- Write a book?
- Find a new job?
- Heck, kick start your own business – live the “Laptop Lifestyle”?
Each of the goals you define, have their own first steps. Some may be more obvious than others.
One Step at a Time
These are all possible, but wishin’ don’t make it so. It takes a series of repeated action on your part.
Possible some new habits, new focus, new learning.
Small steps done regularly will take you a long way to reaching your goal.
For instance, if you want to lose 10 pounds, do one thing today toward that goal. That could include things like replacing that cookie with a piece of fruit, a walk around the block, finding a food plan and/or a health coach. (Need one, I know a couple I could recommend…)
Just one thing today, another one thing tomorrow. One foot in front of the other!
Celebrate, Celebrate, Celebrate!
Celebrate yourself – nooooo, not with food. Find something else, maybe a bouquet of flowers or a good book, or scented bath salts.
Celebrating yourself sends your subconscious mind a positive message. This allows you to acknowledge yourself. To give yourself positive reinforcement. Allows you to experience and express the gratitude that you have for the blessings in your life.
