Reset Your Goals + Achieve Anything With This 1 Tip!
RESET YOUR GOALS
Monday’s post was all about how to reset your goals. Often March can be a hard time for people who had high hopes and great intentions for their New Year’s Resolutions. (If it’s not March anymore, keep reading! Hitting reset on the goals we no longer have willpower for is crucial to achieving our Dreams!)
Our lives are SO full these days. It can be a challenge to fit in something new. Even if that something is what our hearts most want and need. Realizing that those resolutions and intentions have faded can be frustrating and shameful…and lead to feelings of failure.
I’m here to tell you that you – are NOT a failure!
Not one bit.
Not even a little bit.
Stop saying that.
Here’s the truth. Say it with me:
“I am a busy mama who puts others’ needs ahead of my own. It is hard for me to prioritize my own needs. I will keep trying new ways to achieve my goals so I can become the very BEST version of myself for me, my family and my community.”
So, we’re going to try a new way.
P.S. Starting fresh does not make you a failure. Just in case you were going there again.
Ever hear of Michael Jordan? Lady Gaga? Oprah Winfrey? J.K. Rowling? Madonna?
Yep. Lots of failures before becoming who they are now.
It’s what we choose to do after our failures that will decide our future.
We can choose to accept that we’re just not made to be a great basketball player or news anchor or children’s book author.
We can choose to keep believing in that Dream we have.
Your Dream to stay home with your kiddos. To stop feeling anxious about your finances. To pay off your debt. Start a business. To take healthy eating and meal planning seriously.
So many goals.
You totally got this friend.
The key to getting a handle on our goals and actually achieving them is actually more simple than we think.
YOUR GOALS MUST HAVE MEANING, FRIEND.
And, that meaning has to mean something to YOU. To stick, these goals must be moving you somewhere closer to your ultimate goal: Your Big Picture Vision.
(If you don’t have a Vision defined, you can start creating one by downloading my Values Workbook right now!)
Saving $100 a week so you can fund your emergency fund might be your short-term goal. But, it’s a step moving you toward your big picture dream of paying off your debt, which is a step toward being a mama without anxiety around finances, a business owner, a world traveller… a whatever it is that you’re called to be.
Now THAT is a goal to work towards. That is a goal that I was willing to sacrifice for 26 months for. And now, here I am. Debt-free and working from home starting my own business. Dang.
It’s even better than I ever could have imagined.
And, friend, it will be for you, too.
Oh, and just in case you’re going back to that whole failure mumbo jumbo, remember these words from Tony Robbins: “There is no such thing as failure. There are only results.”
Dang he’s smart. You not accomplishing those goals the first time around likely just means the way you went about it just didn’t fit. Let’s try a new way. How about the RIGHT way?
Let’s do this.
As always, I’m rooting for you!
