I’ve been teaching goal-setting & mentoring young women for about 6 years now, and I’ve heard many, many stories — and one of the most common things I encounter with my students is this:
They start out SO excited with a goal, make all these grand plans, feel all pumped up & READY TO ROCK THE WORLD — But after a week or two, slowly but very surely… they fall off the wagon, break momentum, and all progress stops.
Poof! Another goal shelved.
Sounds all too familiar? Feels majorly frustrating, right? “Why can’t I just finish something for once!” *insert angry emoji*
Want to know why most goals end up in the graveyard of all your other goals/ideas/dreams?
It’s because some (most?) of the goal/s we set are NOT IN LINE with what we truly want.
The #1 reason people don’t accomplish their goals is because their goals are not truly connected to the very core of their being. What do I mean by that?
- They set goals that they only kiiiiinda want to do.
- Or they set goals they THINK they have to do — maybe because their parents or friends expect it from them.
- Or, they set certain goals because it’s what everybody else is doing.
In this blog post, I’ll share with you 3 things you MUST do to prepare for the New Year, and help you set goals that are not just the usual goals (lose weight, save more, travel more, read more, am I right???) — but goals that are truly aligned to what you genuinely want to do in life, and what kind of person you want to be.
Below are 3 things (+ free worksheets) that you can do to prep for the New Year.
