Happy New Year!
I can’t believe a year has come and gone so quickly!
It seems like yesterday I was saying Happy New Year to 2016. 🙂
So with a new year we always make new goals and new resolutions to help us live our best year ever. I have been allowing the idea of new possibilities roll around in my head and I have finally received clarity on what I would like to accomplish this year. I am going to be creating a new lifestyle brand. I have always loved designing, buying and creating beautiful things. I love color, texture and patterns and I could really see myself doing this for the rest of my life.
So the first thing I thought of was… how am I going to tackle this giant idea!? I know great question right? So I began researching how to buy products wholesale and just brainstorming the type of products I would like to sell.
My goal with this business is to help millennial christian women stay focused on what God is calling them to in an ever increasingly distracting world. The key to staying focused lies in your commitment to the local church.
So what are your goals for 2017?
My 1st Tip for Meeting all of your huge goals is
#1) THINK BIG
I didn’t grow up thinking big, my parents kind of taught me to think small. Once I realized I had really big dreams it was a bit difficult for me to make the leap and start thinking big. SO if you’re anything like me start with this exercise. Take 10 mins or longer to just sit down alone with a blank page and a pen (add music if you like) and let your mind go. Let your mind think as big as possible. Imagine how big your career goals, life goals and relationship goals can be. Draw a hug picture of what your life could look like and jot everything down unfiltered. This is the first step to thinking big. Now everyday go back and look at these big goals and dreams. Also you can choose to write them down everyday.
#2) Set Quarterly Goals
Take all of these big dreams and choose the goals you will pursue the year. Break them up into a goal every quarter. For that one goal every quarter break it into six actionable steps. Take those actionable steps and right them on your calendar. Start making meeting times for yourself in order to get these big goals accomplished.
#3) Right it down everyday!
Everyday I want you to right down your daily goal and actionable step. Every day you should be getting closer and closer to these big goals. I would number them and set your top 1-3 goals and don’t do anything until your number one is done. Get it done in the morning.
You can do it. I know you can, so set solid actionable goals and you’re on your way to the best year ever! I’m so excited to go on this journey with you and encourage you to the biggest goals ever.
That’s all for today!
Cheers to the best year yet!
