3 clues you created the right 2017 goals

In a prior post on this site, we reviewed the ways you know you set the wrong goals and what to do instead.

Today, we get to talk about the fun stuff!

Have you set goals for 2017 yet? Watch the video below for some tips if you haven’t done that.

Once you have set your goals, how do you know that you’ve set the right ones? Look for the clues below.

You are excited.

A friend of mine looks at all of her goals and keeps the ones that make her feel vivacious. That’s her power word:  vivacious. Do your goals make you feel excited? If the word “excited” is not accurate then, read this article and find your word. 

You can visualize the positive impacts.

When you close your eyes, can you see what it will be like to achieve your goals? The right goals are set for the right reasons. When you think of them, you clearly understand why you want to succeed in this area.

You feel supported by others.

One of my favorite things to say to clients is, “there’s no ability like accountability.” Yes, sharing your goals with others increases the likelihood that you’ll achieve them. But, equally as important is the feeling of camaraderie, love, and support that a tribe of colleagues and friends can provide. No man is an island.

A new year is a celebration of the passage of time:  the end of one era and the beginning of another. Enjoy this opportunity to refresh your mind and renew your focus. Enjoy the journey to accomplishing your goals. Life is the journey, not the destination, right?
