We’re all walking into 2018 HOPING it’s going to be our year and that we can achieve all our goals! I have a much better idea… make it happen for you! Stop hoping and start acting to turn your goals into realities!
When I began my Etsy shop in November 2017 it was a process that had been happening for years, I just didn’t know it. I kept looking for jobs and experiencing rejection. Nobody wanted to offer me an opportunity and I kept HOPING I would get a job. All that rejection was very hard but it made me who I am and it made me act! I created my own opportunity. I truly believe whatever it is you’re going for in 2018 you really can create your own opportunities to achieve it!
I won’t lie to you, it’s very hard work to build a business and work two other jobs but I really want this and so I will go for it with all that I have to give!
Read on for my top 3 tips to entering 2018 with a winning attitude! Make 2018 the year that you kick butt, aim high and succeed!
‘What is this woman taking about!! I’m trying to achieve one thing not a thousand!’ Be honest did you just think that?
Well here is what I mean… plan your year out. Obviously you can’t plan every day from January 1st to January 1st because we have to leave room for the unexpected but it doesn’t mean we can’t have a great plan in place to achieve our goals. Have a go at this mini activity:
- I want you to think about your biggest goal this year and write it down
- Write down 12 steps to achieving your overarching goal
- Take it step by step and tick off your mini goals to reach your big goal
Don’t worry I have created a free download for you to print off to make it super easy! When you have completed this activity, you have 12 accomplishments to reach your 2018 goal! What a lovely surprise, there are also 12 months in the year so that’s one accomplishment a month to reach your goal!
If you want to take it even further you can break your month goals down into weekly goals and your weekly goals to daily goals! It all depends how organised you’re feeling. You can also print the free download I’ve created more than once and use it for different areas of your life like: personal goals, career goals, financial goals, active goals… and the list goes on. What ever you want to achieve in 2018!
If you don’t achieve one of your accomplishments 1 month don’t beat yourself up because the next month you might achieve 2 of them… we don’t know how life is going to work out. You might even achieve 6 of your accomplishments in 1 month!
You can print the free downloadable and keep it in your diary or even stick it on your wall so you can see what your monthly goals are and tick them off as you go along!
It’s normal to have doubts because we often fear failure. Try thinking of failure as a lesson instead. If you fail at something what did you learn? Then get back up and try again. Try having a plan in place for when the doubt monster kicks in? I recommend having an object, picture or memory that you can turn to when self doubt kicks in. Allow whatever you choose to ground you again and remind you how far you’ve come and what your main goal is.
It’s never easy so don’t forget to speak to the people who love you because I’m sure they will have time to tell you how incredible you are if you forget for a minute!
Wether thats physically cleaning your room, throwing away things you don’t use any more, making room to practise more self care, time to be more creative, ending a toxic friendship or relationship or however you feel is best to make room in your life for your new goals and successes. Out with the old and in with the new year! If your mind and physical space is full of old things and habits where are you going to put the new achievements and new habits? Have a spring clean for the new year!
I’d love to know if you’re planning to use the free download – 2018 Goals Tracker! Let me know in the comments below if you’re going to give this a go next year?
I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break and are all ready to strut, dance and gallop into the new years like the boss you are!
