Set Your 2018 Up to Win

Many times, people use the ready, fire, aim method to achieve their goals. This can work in some cases but for the most part, there is great power in establishing a plan before we kick off 2018!
These are some of the strategies you can use to get yourself ready for the year to come:
Get an Accountability Partner
Finding someone that will hold you accountable to achieving the things you want is one of the most powerful tools there is. Find someone that will push you and encourage you to constantly get to the next level.
Take a Day to Plan 2018
It is extremely valuable to take a day to map out exactly how you will get to where you want to go. Plan out the steps you need to take to achieve the things you want so when January 1st hits, you’re ready!
Get Ready to Mess Up!
Failure is a necessary part of any achievement. When you set out to accomplish anything new, failure is an inevitable part of the process. Find the lesson in every failure you have and become stronger with every setback you face.
Reverse Engineer Your Year
Visualize where you want to be in a year from now. Once you have a clear picture of what that looks like, you can now work backwards from that point. Picture your ideal year, now map out what you need to do to make it happen.
Take it Day by Day
People’s biggest problem is they try and focus on everything at once and easily overwhelm themselves. Focus on each day and get present with what you need to do in every moment. Days turn to weeks, weeks turn to months, and months will become a year faster than expected.

 

Vision – Where Goals are Born

“If you haven’t started on 2018, you’re behind” Where do goals come from? And how do we actually make them a reality?
Achievement takes many different factors. But one of the most important pieces of achieving your goals is through visualization. Goals can only exist through having a vision for the future. To be able to see the future better than the present, and to create a plan to make it real, takes vision.
What vision do you have for 2018? What do you want to create in the year to come? Does it seem a bit too far out of reach? Good!
The sole purpose of goals is not about the actual achievement of it, but rather growing into the kind of person who can. It’s the timeless saying: “It’s the journey, not the destination”.
For 2018, set some goals so far outside your reach you need to significantly grow to achieve them. This is your year, this is your time – make this year your best year ever!

 

How to Recharge

We all need time to recharge and reconnect with ourselves. We all need time to energize ourselves so that we can keep going after the things we want. Here are some tips to successfully recharge: 

Take Strategic Breaks

So many of us try and push through the work we are doing and end up feel exhausted. Take small planned breaks throughout your work day and you will feel more energized when you’re finished. 

Meditate

Learning to calm your mind is one of the best ways to feel fully recharged. Even if it is just for 5-10 minutes a day, take time to quiet your mind and connect with the present moment. 

Have Friend Time

If we are drowning ourselves in work, it is hard to feel energized. Make time for friends and family so that you can have time not thinking about all of the things you need to do. Go and have fun! 

Learn Something New 

If you feel yourself stuck in a pattern of never being able to recharge, try taking up something new. It can be a sport, an art, or something that is outside of your daily routine. This will allow you to forget about the stuff that drains you and focus on your new found passion. 

Time to Yourself

We all need it. Some more than others but everyone needs a little time to themselves. Take some time throughout the week to connect with yourself and reflect. Try it for a week and you will see the impact it will have. 

Everyone has experienced feeling drained. Many times, it is hard to get out of it. If you implement these strategies, you will find yourself feeling recharged and ready to take on the day!
