It’s December 31st and it’s time (possibly past time) to talk about resolutions, goals, and all the amazing things that will be different in 2016! I have been thinking about the new year and all the possibilities for weeks now! I am confident that 2016 is going to be epic!
I did a little research and found out that 25% of people quit on their resolutions before the end of week one and 70% of people abandon their Resolutions by January 31st. Only 8% of people achieve their New Years Resolutions?!?! Doesn’t that get you motivated to set a few resolutions and goals for 2016? I know these should be shocking stats, but they aren’t. Truthfully I may not bail during week one, but many times I quit by the end of January on a few.
Over the years I have spent a lot of time setting personal resolutions and goals to solve problems and “fix things” assuming it would bring the perfect life. You know the kind of life that is easy and problem free! Too bad that doesn’t exist and honestly what fun would that be? Topping my resolution list was always to lose weight, be more organized, exercise more (or at all) and the list goes on and on looking similar year after year. I have also made business resolutions or goals in response to comparing my business to what others were doing and achieving. The problem is that those resolutions & goals didn’t inspire me or connect to the vision for my business. I was stuck in comparison and that is never effective in creating the results I want personally or professionally. So in 2016 I am putting a new spin on my resolutions. I’m not doing it!
Yep that’s right the queen of goals is not doing it! I LOVE LOVE LOVE goals and everything about them, but this year I am changing it up! I am not making a long list of goals for every area of my life and business. In 2016 I am going to focus on one word that will be the driver and concept that I hold everything up against for the entire year.
Drumroll Pleeeease, My word for 2016 is….
I have been playing with a handful of words for weeks but FEARLESS continues to be the word that inspires me, draws me into possibility, and guarantees to push me out of my comfort zone over and over! So for 2016 I have one great goal, that all the other ones will flow from in my personal, professional and spiritual life…I will be FEARLESS.
What will your word of 2016 be? I would love to hear it!
Happy New Year!
