Four easy steps to consider when bringing your goals for 2016 to fruition!
- Apply Love!
Are you thinking about making a change in 2016? Whatever your goal is take a moment to apply love to it. How do I apply love to my goals for 2016? By viewing your goal through a loving lens. Does this goal align with my purpose? Does it contribute to my wellbeing and the wellbeing of others? Does it ignite a fire within me that inspires me to be the best version of myself? Applying love doesn’t stop after you answer these questions. It’s applicable throughout the entire process of achieving your goal. It is practicing having compassion and being gentle with yourself throughout the challenges and opportunities to learn that may occur while you are striving towards your goal.
- Bring Clarity!
Sometimes our goals after the first few weeks or months become a little muddy. The inner critic has made their opinion known. People around you may have made suggestions. Our challenges or we could call them opportunities to grow seem a little insurmountable. Take a moment to enter the space of stillness within yourself. Take a few minutes a day to allow your mind, body and spirit to be present through meditation. By practicing meditation, we can develop the ability to quiet the constant internal and external chatter and shift our muddy waters into still waters.
- Create It Within!
Many people have said, start how you would like to end. We can do that by visualizing our goals. When you set your goals for 2016 visualize your intended outcome. What would it look like when this goal is completed? Make it colourful. Take a few minutes in the morning or before you go to sleep at night to visualize your goal. After you visualize your goal write it down just as you saw it within your minds eye. Why?
“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” Napoleon Hill
- Put It into Action!
It’s time to manifest! Take your intention and desire and make a Mind Map or an outline that demonstrates your action plan. With every step you may want to ask, does this bring me closer or further away from where I want to be?
Have a wonderful 2016! Anything you want to do is possible. Allow your dreams and purpose to guide you this year. Let your light shine, and illuminate others as you go along on your journey.
