YOU HAVE A CHOICE
I’m on a super high after a fabulous and motivating goal planning meeting this morning. I’m bursting with ideas for health + wellness expansion in the future and how to help more people feel better, be happier, have more energy and do what YOU WANT to do.
Remember that great scene in Dangerous Minds with Michelle Pfeiffer asking her class if “I choose to die”? Well that’s what I mean.
It is both liberating and challenging thinking about what you want to do with you life but incredibly empowering in allowing you to see just how you MAKE THE CHOICE with what you want to do with my life. We all have bills, we all get tired and run down and we all need to keep going and earn money but you get to CHOOSE how to do this.
Sounds simple? Maybe but it’s taken me years to learn! 4 years ago I would’ve laughed at this and dismissed it saying I had no time, 3 years ago I started noticing I wasn’t happy, 2 years ago I actively started working towards it and now I’m self-employed as a health and wellness expert practising kinesiology which I love.
Teamwork is essential. I’m part of a fabulous group of 4 professionals (finance, property, marketing + complementary medicine) who meet on a monthly basis to discuss both professional and personal goals for the upcoming month. Having people to help with priority setting and accountability really keeps you on track. Plus having your goals, hopes and dreams written down provides a clear focus and less room for procrastination and ‘excusitis’!
STEPS FOR SUCCESS
- Dream Book
- A Blue Peter style moodboard with loads of images of what you want your perfect life to look like. It’s about whatever you want to achieve. This is just for you, where you can store my secrets about what you want my life to look like (second holiday home by the sea anyone?) and keep adding to it.
- Annual plan
- Time for action planning. You now take those picture perfect images in your head and draw up a plan of how to get there. It could be to get a promotion, to change your job, to exercise more or to finally renovate your house, it doesn’t matter, each require a series of steps towards it. Write down where you want to be in a year and work out measureable steps e.g if you want a career change, Jan – investigate new career courses, Feb – sign up and work one night a week etc.
- Monthly goal setting
- This is where the magic happens. Aim to set 3 professional and 3 personal goals for each month, after all don’t we all want a WORK/LIFE balance? Break each one down. For example, I might say: Introduce more people to kinesiology. How? i) Offering Monday discovery sessions, ii) Writing a weekly blog post iii) Giving local talks
Want to feel in control of your life? Give it a go! My productivity rate and achievements have soared since start this starting this in January.I know you can do it too! Write down what you want to achieve between now and Christmas and break it down into small sections.
