At the end of 2016, I had a clear vision of how I wanted December 31 2017 to look like. Today, 3 days from this date, I can tell you, I am very close to seeing my full in reality.
What was my secret? The KIND of goals I set. It was these goals that they were responsible for bringing my vision to life.
You see, people are often quick to make new resolutions with each new year.and as the days roll by, they helplessly watch the death of these rolled up dreams. I can almost bet you already have made some resolutions for your 2018; and I can bet you have promised yourself this time would be the time you did not give up on that goal.
As you know already, saying and doing are two different things. What I want to share with you is how to ensure doing comes out of your sayings.
You see, those who have made it a habit to achieve their goals know that it is not just about intentionally setting SMART goals but about intentionally setting goals that SPARK.
As you take stock of this year, I would like you to think about these things:
- Where do I want to be one year from now?
- What is permitted to follow me into 2018?
- What things do I need to let go off as 2017 wraps up?
- What is(are) the vivid image(s) and emotion(s) I would like to experience at the end of my 2018?
With your answers at the fore of your mind, pick your pen and paper and set goals that are sure to eventually deliver your painted picture and emotions to you. The key is in the emotions.
I guarantee you that doing this right, would be the difference between the YOU that entered into 2018 three days from now and the YOU you pictured at the tail end of 2018.
There is no time to waste. 2018 is just around the corner.
Get Ready… Set…Goals.
