It’s that time of year upon when many of us decide to begin anew. We make ourselves and other promises of change. Some of us attack weight loss, others set goals for our career or business path. In essence we start with the best of intentions. We move into the new year with such wonderful expectations, full of vigor!
AND…, in some cases we hit the brick wall! Our first main obstacle occurs and we start to teeter. Then we begin to question our ability and this turns into disappointment and soon we begin to wonder what we were thinking in making this goal to begin with.
Does this formula sound familiar??? How many of you have already it your first impasse?
I am here to help with these feelings. I would like you to know that over 80% of goals set have been hindered by the feelings of inability. The question we all want answered is why we allow the plan to alter at the first sign of trouble.
The will to want to make a change is a huge part of success however we need to do the follow through. Here are some steps to ensure that you are successful:
- Once your goal is set, you need to make a plan. Make steps to your plan with appropriate time lines!
- Revise and edit your plan if you find that portions of your steps aren’t working with the outcome you desire. Making a change in the plan isn’t quitting; it is merely allowing you to tweak your plan to ensure your success.
- Look for help! If you find that things aren’t coming together seek the advice of a good friend or more importantly a professional. Seek a business councillor for your business needs or the expert in the field of your goal.
- Don’t quit!!!! You have the ability to become anything you want or achieve any success you desire. It is all your choice!
Here is wishing you a great start to your goals in 2014! Feel free to contact me if you need any help ensuring your success.
