Today is the first of November. The end of the year is nearly upon us.
During the year I have be encouraging you to write down your goals for 2016-2017 and to take action to achieve them. Check out the Achievements 2016-2017 page for more information.
So the question I have for you today is:
HAVE YOU ACHIEVED THE GOALS YOU SET FOR YOURSELF FOR 2016?
Like most of us, you have achieved some of the aspirations on your list. However, there are probably 2-3 things left you have not done and my guess is that at least one of them is a BIG goal! There is one goal that you have just not gotten to. Maybe you have been putting off taking action, been afraid of what would happen if you took steps in the direction of your goal, or just hoped and wished it would come true. So far, no luck!
The good news is, it is not too late!
You still have a few weeks left to make that dream a reality! But, you are going to have to take a bold action to do it. There is no more time to dip your toes in the water. If you want to reach your goal now is the time to jump in with both feet!
Take some time today to think about 4-5 bold moves you can make to reach your goal by the end of the year (or at least be well on your way).
- If your goal was to lose weight this year, a bold action could be to hire a personal trainer or nutritionist.
- If your goal was to get a new job, your bold move could be to start a job search and go on a few interviews.
- If your goal was to take a vacation, be bold and call a travel agent and book that trip!
- If your goal was to advance your education, research your schooling options and start a class.
We all have responsibilities we must meet, like caring for our families, paying bills, etc., so I am not suggesting you quit your job, leave your family in the lurch, or stop taking care of your obligations. You may even want to write down some extreme actions as one of your bold moves (just the thought can be fun and empowering). What I am suggesting, however, is that you take some action outside of your comfort zone, perhaps an action that you have been avoiding. Make that phone call, join that club, get out an meet new people/network, hire the trainer, take a class, run the marathon. Do something you would ordinarily not do.
Here’s and example from my list of goals:
My goal: To sell 500+ copies of my book, Cooking with Your Canine, in 2016.
My bold move: I have written a press release to submit to local new stations in an effort to promote the book. The first edition is currently for sale and the 2nd edition will be done with the editing process in a few weeks and be ready to self publish and sell as an ebook.
And you better believe you will all know about it when it is released!!!!!!
For me, the idea of reaching out to the public in such a way is quite frightening and intimidating! It is a truly bold action for me to take and I know it is what I must do if I want to reach my goal.
So, what bold action are you going to take to ensure you achieve your dreams this year? Declare it in the comment section below as a sign to the Universe you are committed to achieving your goal!
Good Luck and Have Fun!
