2018 – Do It Different [Part 1]

It’s a new week! Begin with excitement, high & positive energy. You’ll  definitely attract success with that kind of attitude.

Well, I’ll say it again, the year is pretty young. We’re just 8 days into it. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I’ll ask again – have you written down your goals? Are they SMART goals? Do you have a plan?

But what’s the obsession with developing a plan? You may ask. But let me ask you, If you have no plan and no direction, how can you expect to get anywhere? I know you desire a purposeful and meaningful life. That’s why you need to envision a destination and craft a plan of how to get there. Critical!

I know …I know …. you have been writing your resolutions every other year, but have failed spectacularly when it came to achieving them. It happens to the best of us.

Did you know that 92% of people fail at their resolutions? Horrible!

The reason for the resounding failure is that people make wishes not plans.

“I want to loose weight this year”
That’s a wish right there sister!

At the heart of a great plan is SMART goals.
SMART;
S – Specific
M- Measurable
A – Attainable
R – Realistic
T – Time-bound

And your plan MUST address these three questions;

1. What you want
2. Why you want it
3. How you plan to get there.

Now, forget the past failures. Time to forge ahead. In my subsequent posts this week I will show you how to create a plan that will stand the test of 2018!

Stay with me!
