Where were you 1 year ago today?
What you did for the holidays? What job or school or situation did you find yourself heading back into? Did you sign up for a 30-day challenge, an intensive training or start reading a new self development book? Were you feeling excited and inspired at the thought of a brand new year in front of you?
Now I want you to fast forward to today - January 3rd 2017. What was the past year like for you? Did you reach your goals? More importantly - how did you feel? Did you stay inspired? Or did the energy die down, the inspiration gone after a few weeks of getting back into real life?
It's okay - I didn't reach all of my goals either.
I made the vision board and even wrote down specific action items (4 pages of them to be exact). But I still fell short on some of my intentions that were important to me.
I didn't have anyone to hold me accountable.
I had the big dream but not the step-by-step personalized support that I needed to anchor that dream into my daily reality.
Now, don't get me wrong, 2016 was a great year in so many ways. But I did feel a little disappointed in myself for not following through on the things I said I wanted to do with my health, my business, and my life.
Here's what I'm doing differently this year: I'm asking for help.
Again this year, I made my vision board and wrote out my goals. But this year I also shared that vision and those goals with people who I know will hold me accountable. Who will [lovingly] call me out when I'm not following through, who will talk it out with me when something isn't working as planned, and who will share in carrying the responsibility of the "work."
This is my vision board for this year:
There's a lot of specifics that I won't go into here (although I am more than happy to tell you if you are interested), but here are my overarching intentions for the next year:
- Be OPEN and HONEST in all communication
- FOLLOW THROUGH on my words and actions
- Be UNAPOLOGETIC about what I want in all areas of life
- Allow work to feel EASY and FUN
- FOCUS on the people and activities that light me up
Now it's your turn. What's your vision for 2017?
What is a goal you want to achieve, or a dream you wish to make come true? Comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what you want to make happen this year - it can be just one thing, or maybe you have a whole vision board made. Whatever it is, I want to hear from you.
And if you are not sure where you want 2017 to take you... that's okay too. I can help you get there. Yes, I'm a "health" coach but your whole life impacts your health. I work with clients to get clear on their goals for their bodies and for their lives, and then help them create a roadmap to get where they want to be, whether that's 10 lbs lighter or feeling more appreciated at their job.
Ready to make 2017 your best year yet?
Let's do this 2017!!
