10 Tips to Thrive in 2020
Tip #1: Create a Vision Board.
A first step to achieving your goals in 2020 is creating a vision board of what you want the whole of your life to look like by the end of 2020. Think about your personal life, professional life, finances, health, hobbies, relationships, and new things you want in life. Put your vision board someplace you will see it every day.
Tip #2: Circle 3 elements on your Vision Board that you will focus on in 2020.
Sometimes all that we want to accomplish can be overwhelming. Can I get an AMEN!? Select 3 goals that you want to focus on achieving. Focus on things that will keep you healthy, bring growth, and add adventure/fun to your life. Think through the goals that are going to motivate you and elevate your life!
Tip #3: Make a plan, with benchmarks, for each of your goals.
A plan is always helpful, to guide and provide structure - this helps us not feel like we wondering towards our goals. Rather, a plan helps us strive towards our goals. I love having benchmarks as a part of my plan. These are small wins along the way. Find ways to celebrate!!
Tip #4: With your top 3 goals in mind, take inventory of your life context.
Spend some time thinking about what you need (or don't need) to accomplish your goals. Ask yourself these questions: -What do I need to eliminate from my life? -What do I need to add to my life? -Do I need to become a member of something or someplace? - Do I need to bring new people into my life? Trainer, Coach, Mentor, etc.
Write down your answers and make it happen!
Tip #5: Write down your thoughts to this: what will life feel like if you don't accomplish these goals?
You have these goals for a reason. You are looking for a change! Let's be honest, working towards goals is difficult. Sometimes we need to be honest with ourselves and really look at what life will look and feel like if we don't reach our goals. Are you OK with your life looking and feeling like that? Probably not! Use this as motivation!
Tip #6: Write down your thoughts to this: what will life feel like when you accomplish your top 3 goals?
It's time to make your dreams your reality and live an inspired life! You have these goals for a reason. You are looking for a change! Thinking of accomplishing your top 3 goals, how will your life change? How will that feel? Are you willing to give that dream up or are you ready to make it happen? What is the driving force behind these goals? You deserve to accomplish your goals and dreams!
Tip #7: Think about what you will need to keep you motivated and on track to accomplish your goals.
We can set goals, make plans, start strong, and then fizzle out. I don't want that to be you! Think about the things that motivate you and keep you focused. Small rewards for yourself? A person that will check in on you? What will work for you? Write it down, find the resources you need and get ready to ROCK IT!
Tip #8: "No Man is an Island."
We were created to be in community with others. This is especially important when working towards goals. We someone (or a tribe) that will be your cheerleader, accountability person, sounding board, and voice of reason. Who do you have to support you in accomplishing your goals? I would love to chat with you about your goals and how you can be supported!
Tip #9: Enjoy Life!
Let's face it, we all have so much going on in our lives, work, home, family, bills... what are friends?l A key to reaching your goals and thrive is taking time to breathe and refresh the core of who you are. What gives you joy? Makes you laugh? Helps you feel rejuvenated? Mine is getting my nails done while sipping a glass of champagne!
Make a commitment to yourself to give yourself 1 hour a week to rejuvenate and recharge!
Tip #10: Push Away Doubt and Don't Look Back!
Happy New Year! It's a new year and a new decade! Today is the day for a fresh start. Commit to yourself that you will not look back, you won't listen to the limiting thoughts that come to mind. You have goals, you have purpose, and you have a plan! Enjoy today and WIN in 2020!!
