When is now a great time to set new goals?
I love looking back and reflecting on what has happened in the months before. Let me share some questions with you that you could ask yourself because the quality of your questions determine the quality of your life.
You can either ask questions like “where did I go wrong?” or “why have I failed?” or you can ask yourself “what do I really want?” or “what went right?”
Like going out into the darkness – you can shine your torch on anything you choose – and whatever you illuminate with the beam of your torch will determine what you see. Funny that!
So here are some great questions that you can use to create the life you really desire. Most of these have been influenced by the books I’ve read. “Best Year Yet”, by Jinny Ditzler is one of my favourites for this time of the year. Or if you’d like to have a very quick goal setting workbook, then visit www.goalachieverworkshop.com and download my free ebook: The path to Achieving (unbelievable) goals.
What have I done particularly well in the last 12 months?
Which goals have come about?
What interesting curve-balls came along?
What have I learnt?
Where do I want to be this time next year? (both physically and emotionally?)
What parts of my life am I happy with, and which parts would I like to change?
What do I really, really want?
Once again I am reminded how important it is to set goals that you’re passionate about. My mentor Bob Proctor talks about getting emotional about your goals – and if a goal is “scary and exciting” then it’s a good one for you! If you’re not excited about a goal that you set, then it’s probably a great goal for someone else, but might not be a good goal for you.
One of my favourite “Scary and exciting” goals of 2011 was to get 4-time bestselling author, the Millionaire maker: Loral Langemeier to Perth. Setting the goal early in August and getting her here in front of a room full of people in mid-September did cause some anxious moments, but it was a lot of fun and very successful. More importantly I have seen how it has already benefitted the businesses of several people who attended. Watch this space to see our next event together in September 2012!
Another goal was to connect driven, successful individuals to others in the Dynamic Mastermind Alliance.
After numerous requests from clients to be introduced to other successful people in the area, the Dynamic Mastermind Alliance is the ideal forum to talk about your business.
Who are the members of the Dynamic Mastermind Alliance? Business owners who are keen to connect with each other, make a difference by sharing their expertise – and discover the quantum leaps that come from masterminding with others – each leaders in their own areas. The Dynamic Mastermind Alliance will be opening up a new international group that will meet on skype monthly. If you would like to know more, please email me on jill(at)evolvedynamic.net.
