Gather your kids and your spouse, download the Yearly Resolutions printable (link at the bottom of the post), print it out and set aside a time to brainstorm. Why do we spin our wheels? It’s simple. We don’t take the time to dream, think and decide that what we want to do in life is actually achievable.
Why do I tell you to grab your kids to fill out the Yearly Resolutions? Start them young! Let them know that they can set goals and achieve them. If you instill this in your kids when they are young, it will become a habit which will reap success.
FEAR? No Way!
It all begins with a brainstorming session. Think. And then write. Don’t be afraid to write things down. Take the “big picture” of what you want to do and put it in your yearly box. Then break it down. What goals can you make each month to get to your dream goal? Write these baby-steps in the monthly boxes.
What’s next? Just writing everything down won’t get you anywhere. You have to start your hustle. Yep. HUSTLE. How can you accomplish your goals and tasks? Set aside time on a daily or weekly basis to work on your monthly goals.
Let’s talk about how successful this can be.
Besides being a graphic designer, I’m a blogger with lots of friends in the blogging world. One of my greatest blogging friends is Ruth Soukup of Living Well Spending Less. She is a true example of taking a dream, setting goals and making it a reality. She had a dream of creating a course to help bloggers become successful.
She, on a daily basis, worked on curriculum and created a course called Elite Blog Academy. It’s AMAZING! I have taken the course myself and can’t tell you how much this course has helped my blog grow. She along with a number of others have turned blogging into a full-time income and have even brought home their husbands from their jobs! You have to watch some of the success stories…simply proof that goals and resolutions NEED to become a part of what we do.
BTW…If you are a blogger or a blog wanna-be, you might want to consider taking Ruth’s newest course, Elite Blog Academy 3.0. It might just change your life.
