“Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement”. Brian Tracy.

Brian Tracy is one of America's leading authors on the development of human potential. He said this..."If I had to pick the #1 key to success, it would be...self-discipline. It is the difference in winning or losing; between greatness and mediocrity."  Of course, this statement can be applied to almost anything and is especially true when it comes to goal setting.  Most people don’t set goals for 2 reasons:  1. they don’t know what they want, and 2) they are afraid of “failing” if they don’t achieve their goals.  Which is it for you?  Success is intentional and unless you choose what it is you want, you have to be willing to accept what is.

Before moving forward you need to know where you have been so it’s important to review what has happened and use that to help you in setting your goals and intentions.  Many people I know don’t actually do any sort of planning or goal setting.  My response to that approach is if you don’t set any goals, how will you know what you are working towards and even more importantly, what you have accomplished?

One of the main reasons clients seek me out is to help them get clear on what they want.  Amazingly, most people don’t know what they want so spending time to really gain clarity on what’s important to you will set you on the right path.

Here are seven goal-setting tips to help you bring success to your job or your personal life.

I recently began taking yoga again and in being away from it for quite some time, I have come to realize how important it is to be in that space of peace and calm.  Interestingly, what I thought were relaxing exercises are more physically demanding yet at the same time it allows me to open my mind and body to places I don't normally go.  As a result of my learnings, I'd like to share some tips for helping you let go.

When I went to my yoga class, the first thing you do is lie down on the floor and breathe. I'm not sure about you but I don't find lying on a hard floor incredibly comfortable so what I noticed right off the bat is how uncomfortable this is. However, not wanting to disturb the class, I lied down, closed my eyes and start to breathe. Focusing on your breath helps to keep your thoughts from wandering and also allows you to release whatever thoughts and feelings you are still caring with you about your day. Without judgement, you can simply notice how your body feels and where in your body you may still be holding onto the stress and business of the day.  Within a few minutes, I can feel my body soften and gently move from stiffness and tension to being relaxed and calm. And even though I feel more at peace then I was when I first walked into class, I quickly realize that my body is still quite tight when I try to move into the various poses.

One tree can start a forest,
One smile can begin a friendship,
One hand can lift a soul,
One word can frame the goal,
One candle can wipe out darkness,
One laugh can conquer gloom,
One hope can raise our spirits,

And...one choice can change your life.

Are you sitting on the fence of indecision waiting for the courage to take action? Whether it’s switching careers, starting your own business, losing weight, finding financial freedom or giving back to others, if you have the courage, you could make any one of these choices today and you would change your life. It all starts with just once choice.

Think about it. One choice, just one, can change your life forever. Simply put, your life today is what your choices have made it, but with new choices, you can change directions this very moment.

So what area of your life would you like to change right now?
