New Year, New Goals?!?

Friday, January 18, 2019


Happy New Year!!!




How amazing! We have celebrated another year! So thankful to be here and be able to continue working on my goals, creating new ones and being present in this moment.



So, how are you doing with your goals? As a therapist and coach, one of the ways I help my clients stay motivated in the new year is being clear on what they want, what they want to accomplish and staying FOCUSED! I’ll be honest, the New Year, New Goals, New Me typically fades away after February, maybe March.  Ones it fades, we get discouraged, we lose motivation and even forget the actual goal we wanted to accomplish.



So what are the best ways to stay motivated and focused on your goals?  Well the first thing I always recommend is having accountability. If you are good doing this on your own, AWESOME! For many this is a challenge.  I recommend having an accountability partner, a friend, family, coach, mentor that can hold you accountable. Your accountability partner should be someone who is not trying to sugar coat things for you, someone who will not be afraid to hold you accountable when you are not working to your potential— ya know>?

Next, I encourage writing things down.  Whether is through journaling or keeping a daily checklist, whatever works for you.  Writing your goals, your daily victories and daily challenges can help you see your trajectory better.  Seeing these on paper will give you a better perspective to where you have been, where you are, and where you are going.



Just like an accountability partner, I suggest a team, those who are around you, your squad.  While these may not be the same as your accountability partner, these are your main supporters, like fans in the stand cheering for you, or the cheerleaders cheering you on- they don’t always know your moves (play by play) but they know you want to WIN! And that’s all it matters!



My last one CELEBRATE!  Like journaling, celebrate your victories, celebrate your challenges (these are all opportunities to grow and perfect your plan).  Take yourself out to dinner, drinks, desserts, day trip— so many ways to celebrate— treat yourself every month to celebrate where you are! Be happy for your progress, any progress is worth celebrating. Remember that!



Don’t lose your motivation.  Your goals are important. They are valuable and worth of your pursuit.

haven't found your partner? someone who will keep you accountable?
