It’s been one year since I wrote down my goals for 2023. I hit every one.
Here are the things I did:
I journaled daily.
I journaled from my future self in the morning. I would get to the gym early. Usually the first one in the door, I would journal for a few minutes until the instructor started. I pasted the priming questions in the front, along with my vision board for easy access.
I was more reflective in the evenings, where I recounted the day, often in bullet points. It was key to ask “What worked?” What didn’t work?”
I got in alignment.
I can wish for success in business but if I’m not aligned with either price or the offering, I can’t sell it.
Instead, I hired a sales coach. I worked on my self-worth.
I tried new things.
I offer a Mastermind for 12 months. Some can’t commit the time.
Instead I offered a one-day intensive.
I gave up worry.
Worry is using all of my creative energies to powerfully visualize an outcome I don’t want. (Source: It is Done, by Richard Dotts)
Instead, I found an accountability partner. We say the reverse of worry to one another daily on Voxer.
I internalized the message as a kid ‘things must be hard.’
Instead, I made the struggle ‘optional.’ Embracing the surprising ways the goal could come about.
I kept my own counsel.
Instead, I shared my big hairy audacious goals with my business coach.
I found teachers in books.
I kept it simple.
