Can you believe we are just a week in to this new decade? You may be firing on all cylinders or you may have not quite got started yet.
Wherever you’re at, can I suggest you take half and hour with a cuppa, notebook and pen to pause and set yourself up for this new year and new decade…?
Looking ahead into this new decade
What do you want to take with you? What are you already grateful for? It might be your health, your career and purpose or your relationships. It’s a universal law that what you focus on expands so take a minute to consider what you are grateful for.
Now take yourself forward to New Year’s Eve 2020. What would you like to have accomplished? What will that look like? What will you be saying to yourself? How will you know that you have made a change?
What is the WORD that will guide you this year. Choose a word that embodies your intentions for what you would like to Be, Do and Have. In the past my words have been love, peace, calm and focused. This year my word is intentional to really challenge myself to think carefully about the choices behind how I spend my time and energy.
What new HABIT could you adopt on a daily basis that will support you in making progress? This might be a daily walk, going to sleep earlier, reducing time on social media etc.
Who will SUPPORT you and cheer you on? Who are the people in your life who will encourage you? If you can’t think of anyone please come and join us in The Transformation Hub.
Who or what might stop you or hold you back? How can you handle this?
What is one ACTION you could commit to that you can take in the next 24 hours that will allow you to move one step closer to achieving your goal?
2 CREATE A VISION BOARD
I spent the 2nd January with an amazing group of women creating my vision board for 2020. The energy and connection in the room was palpable and I came back fired up and ready to nail the new year.
A vision board is a collage of words and images that inspires and motivates you. It’s a great tool to help you focus on what you want and to keep you on track on those days when you’re just not feeling it.
All you need is some magazines, scissors and glue. You can do this alone, with friends or family or come and join us here.
3 FIND GOOD STRATEGIES AND SUPPORT
A few months ago, I was fortunate to hear Professor Carol Dweck speak about her latest research on growth mindset. The learning that resonated most deeply was that mindset alone is not enough. We all need good strategies and excellent support. We can’t do it alone.
In the last few years I’ve made a career change and built my business from scratch. But I haven’t done it alone: I’ve worked with coaches and mentors; I’ve invested in my learning and development and I’ve been so grateful for friends old and new who have believed in me and championed me.
You don’t have to do it alone and that’s why I have created Your Best Life Group Coaching Programme to offer you the teaching and strategies you need to kickstart your personal development journey, along with a group of like minded and supportive people.
So what will you do to get started? You don’t have to make a massive changes; it’s good to start small. What is your first step?
