Happy New Year!
How do you prepare for a new year? Set goals? Create resolutions? Focus on an intention for the year? How do you determine what you want to accomplish in the new year? How much thought goes into it? Whatever you do at the beginning of January, does it set you up for success throughout the year? Or do you go full out for 4-6 weeks and then lose interest? Do you tend to make the same resolution every year, only to fail in completing it? Is 2023 going to be different?
YES! This year will be different!
I invite you to SHAKE THINGS UP this year! Let’s look at 2023 with a new perspective!
Take some time over the next week to ask yourself and answer these two questions:
What would I do if I knew I couldn’t fail?
What would I do if I only have a few months left to live?
Dig deep EXPLORING what you really want to do and what is most important to you right now. Take time to ruminate on your thoughts. Then let’s SHAKE THINGS UP!
Think of your life as a snow globe. You hold it up and observe its stillness and beauty. But when you SHAKE IT UP and observe, you see a new life emerge from the image inside making it even more beautiful. You may even see things you didn’t see before the shake-up. Think of the stillness as your daily routine. It’s nice but can become boring. You stop noticing and experiencing excitement. You may become complacent and even zombie-like. It’s time to step out of your comfort zone and create change and growth. Challenge yourself and be brave!
When you shake things up with a new goal, a new adventure, a new job, a new relationship, a new hobby, it creates a new perspective with excitement making your life vibrant and thrilling again. It will wake you up. You will begin to notice the world around you again.
What new goal, adventure, job, relationship, hobby would you like to pursue in 2023? Choose something you REALLY want. Something you are willing to sacrifice for; something that drives you with motivation and excitement. Those are the goals you WILL accomplish. Things you REALLY want, not just things you would like to experience. Don’t go through the motions. Go after it with intention and drive! Write it down, create a plan of action. Create baby steps that are doable and keep you accountable. You CAN DO THIS!
It's time to SHAKE UP your life and live the life you REALLY want!
