There’s just something about the feeling of starting fresh, a clean slate. A new month does that for me, especially when it starts at the beginning of a week lol. I take the time to get real with myself about what I need to get done and plan my month accordingly.
Setting goals isn’t always about financial doings, they could be deep cleaning a room in our house, getting a pedicure, taking a ME day, researching how to start that business we have been putting off, networking, passing a class, etc. To be honest goals can be pretty overwhelming, that’s why prioritizing is important.
We all probably have more than 10 goals we would like to complete. But trying to complete every goal at the same time dilutes the quality of effort we put in to completing them.
Every new month set 3 goals. One financial. One personal. One relationship or family oriented. That gives us time to live as well. As someone once told me the only problem about being overly goal oriented is we forget how to live. Our life becomes consumed around goals instead of living in the moment, which is just as important as the goals we set.
Also, setting 3 goals leaves us room to actually complete them and walk into the next month feeling confident that we will complete 3 more. Overly setting goals leads to some goals not being accomplished, which attacks the confidence within ourselves and we begin to question if we are ever going to get things done.
In other words, STOP, BREATHE, be gentle and patient with yourself. You are only one person! I challenge u to set 3 goals this month. Goals that are most important to you and your growth. Yup that means there are some things you may have to save til next month and that’s okay. Take the steps needed to complete them and feel that feeling of accomplishment that you deserve to feel. Your goals deserve 100% of your effort! Begin your clean slate, begin brand new today. What happened the months before doesn’t mater. All that matters is how we choose to move forward. Make this a December to Remember. THERE SHE GO!
