The great thing about life is that a new year can start anytime that you choose. It doesn’t not have to be the beginning of a year, month or week. You can choose at anytime to start a new positive habits) in your life.
Step 1: Celebrate past wins! Take the time to acknowledge and celebrate your accomplishments from the previous year. Even the smallest victories should be celebrated because they have brought you to the point that you are at now.
Step 2: Evaluate your goals and determine whether the goals that went unaccomplished last year are worth transferring over to the new year or not. Sometimes we set goals but for one reason or another, we don’t get them done. If you decide to transfer over a goal to the next year, take time to ask yourself why you didn’t get it done and what can you do better this year to make it happen.
Step 3: Create 1 year goals that is in alignment with your 3,5,10 year goals. Take your big one year goal and break it down into smaller chunks that are more manageable. Say that you have a savings or income goal, determine how much you want to save by the end of the year and determine what that looks like monthly. When you check in with yourself at the end of each month, you can see if you are behind, on track or exceeding your goal. If you are off track, figure out what is needed to make up and get back on track.
Step 4: Get clear on what goals you want to accomplish for the new year and decide if they fit into your long term goals. Make sure you are setting 1 goal for each category in life and create SMART Goals—(Want to know how to create smart goals…Click Here)
This is the step where you get super clear and declare what you will get done in the following year.
Step 5: Create a Visual Reminder
- Vision Board
- Digital Vision Board (Phone or Computer)
- Post Goals on Your Mirror, In Cabinets, In Your Journal or Wallet
Having a visual reminder will keep you on track and moving in forward motion toward your goals on the days that you aren’t feeling motivated or if you are feeling completely discouraged.
Step 6: Write a letter from your future self to your present self. This letter helps put your intention out into the universe and you are able to look at it in one year and see all that you accomplished that is in alignment with your goals.
This letter can be hand written and put up to read next year. ( I packed mine away with my holiday decorations.) or you can use www.FutureMe.Org to send an email to yourself 1,3,5 Years in the future.
I like to write my letter like I’m talking to an old friend about how awesome my year was. Refrain from saying anything negative and talk in present tense.
January 1, 2019 (Date it one year from the day your are writing it)
Dear (Previous Year) (Your Name),
This year was epic and amazing. As a write you this letter, I am on the plane to XYZ City to bring in the new year with my family. This is our first time flying in First Class and it feels amazing. There is so much space and who doesn’t love to pampered, especially on a plane.
This year started out with my bang. I took the time to put my first program on a platform where I can make residual income. The response for my book was so amazing that I was inspired to write a book. It is currently sitting on the shelf at your nearest bookstore as a New York Times Bestseller. The response has been so amazing that I start a book signing tour after we get back from our New Years Celebration. I enclosed a signed copy for you because you are my number one fan and I truly appreciate that.
I really want to thank you for all your support and dedication over the past year. Because of you, I have been able to live my dream of helping moms internationally find their joy. It feels freeing being able to get up and do something that comes natural to me and make a six figure income doing it.
This a quick sample. If you need more help with this, feel free to comment below and I can add more clarity.
I hope that you found this post helpful! I am sending you all good vibes for the new year and wish for you to complete and even exceed your goals!
Comment below and let me know one goal that you would like me to hold you accountable to for the new year.
