If you didn’t have time constraints, financial worries, or self-doubt, what dreams and goals would you pursue?

I often ask my clients this question and frequently get the same response...”hmmm, I’m not sure.” But then, after a few moments, the  list is endless.

Robert H. Schuller asked the profound question ‘what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?’ What would it be for  you?

Sometimes it’s hard to imagine the answer and even harder to actually take the first step in pursuing our goals and dreams.

 

So why does fear hold us back and more importantly, what can we do to silence the inner voice that tells us not to even try?

It’s a new year and a new chapter for you to make 2014 the best ever. You have a wonderful opportunity to start thinking and behaving differently so you can achieve outrageous success. But what will you do differently this year to ensure that you actually achieve that success?

The start of a new year is the perfect time to set the stage for the year to come. The habits and patterns that you create now will decide on how your year will unfold.

If you are not leading fearlessly then this mindset will not only affect you but your business or career (and life) as well. Remember, fears may not be obvious. Sometimes you just know there’s something holding you back but aren’t sure what.

 

According to one research study, 22% of those who make New Year’s resolutions fail after only one week and 81% are back to their old ways within two years.  Yet, year after year, we tend to make the same resolutions over and over again.  However, that may not necessarily be a bad thing.  According to the same study, it can take seven or eight attempts before someone succeeds at their goal, so it’s common for people to make the same resolutions year after year.

I guess that’s why there are the “old popular” resolutions like losing weight, exercising more, becoming more organized or changing jobs.  However, if it’s going to take seven or eight times to get it right, no wonder most of us end up throwing in the towel so soon. So where does that leave us?  Should we continue to make those resolutions or is it simply just a waste of time?

Resolutions or goals are extremely important as they help you get clear about what you want in your life. Without clarity, it’s hard to set meaningful goals.  And those goals, especially made in January, help to set the stage for the year to come. However, rather than making resolutions (like the ones listed above), I choose to create something that has more meaning for me. I choose to set a theme for myself and live my life by that theme. My theme for 2014 is:  Passion, Purpose and Power.
