Resolutions, Goals and Your Success for the New Year

First say to yourself what you would be; then do what you have to do. ~ Epictetus

We all have dreams: visions of the possible, probable and seemingly impossible. Setting goals is the key to turning your dreams into reality.  Goals help you recognize your progress and allow you to celebrate the process.

 Setting goals is one of the master keys to a successful life.  Goal-setting creates results, yet less than 3% of the population will actually adopt the process.  Every person is gifted with the ability to dream and to plan, to envision and create the life you desire.  If you will spend just a few minutes each day creating a focused action-plan, you can see your life transformed into your dreams. 

 Goal-setting is powerful.  Goals make your dreams believable by creating actionable steps.  Belief creates faith, and faith is one of the most powerful forces in the universe.  Believe that you can achieve, then develop a goal list to help you move toward your desired outcome. No matter how small your goals may seem, if they are a part of your ‘master plan’ AND you are performing them daily, you will eventually see the results you seek. 

 Goals can be simple or complex. Whatever task you choose, get it done. In addition to keeping the process on track, you’ll feel like you are making progress.  With each completed goal, you are pushing closer and closer to the success you desire.

 Goals provide focus for your dreams and shape your reality.  Dreams are somewhat ephemeral.  A valid goal is always specific (what action can I take now?), reasonable (can it be accomplished?), measurable (did I get it done?) and timely (what deadline should I set?)

Make 2010 your best year ever. Decide what you want … what you would be, then go for it!
