Happy 2024. How’s your year starting off?
As you probably noticed, you didn’t hear New Year’s resolutions talk from me, mainly because growth is a continual process, and I’m not a fan of making dramatic shifts at the beginning of a new year.
The start of a new year is somewhat refreshing though, and an opportunity to infuse new energies into what we’re already doing.
I’d like to show you how I think about the idea of making changes and how I put it into practice. It’s an approach I’ve been using for many years and has undoubtedly helped me to go faster and farther than I ever could have by setting goals or resolutions.
I like to choose a word for the year, an energy, that I intentionally incorporate into my way of being.
This year, my word is IMPACT.
I’m going to get super clear on the impact I want to make in every situation – every interaction, every conversation, every email, every communication, every video. And not just in business- I want to make an impact on every person I meet personally.
And the other side of that – I’m going to sharpen the pencil even more and be super clear about what I want to impact ME.
In the spirit of my own growth and evolution, I want to be connected with and impacted by people who inspire me to keep reaching and growing.
And I don’t want to be impacted by unnecessary complications, distractions, negativity, or anything that doesn’t move me forward.
As a result of being super clear on my intention, the choices I make, my behaviors, reactions, and how I design my life flow naturally.
In a recent session with my coach, I asked if it was at all weird that I didn’t feel the need to set any crazy goals. She said, “Not at all. You’re so connected to what you feel inspired to do and naturally driven that what you achieve will be far greater than what you could have set for yourself.”
I know that may sound abstract.
And I totally get that some people may be uncomfortable with the idea of not setting SMART goals – because that’s what they’ve used in the past, and it seems to work more or less okay.
But then, why are they still tripping over the same issues?
Why isn’t happiness and fulfillment found and here to stay?
Why is the “never enough” feeling still lingering?
It’s because an INWARD approach is what’s needed.
Knowing yourself and trusting yourself allows you to get comfortable with setting intentions.
This is where my coaching comes into play.
In my coaching, I teach my signature methods to help you achieve more than you ever thought you could and enjoy your life along the way. I help you widen your lens and bring fresh perspectives and new energies to give you new ways of living and leading.
The truth is that the behaviors that move you forward will need to be different than the behaviors that got you to where you are.
Read that again – The behaviors that move you forward will need to be different than the behaviors that got you to where you are.
I’m even doing things differently in my own life – way more planning, more organization, more preparation, more intention. We’re only a few days into 2024, and I’m already experiencing the benefits.
