So we’re well into January and I’ve promised myself that I’ll start blogging, because I enjoyed writing the first one and then never got around to doing anymore. I’ve realised that if I do a draft on word with the intention of uploading it, I never do it. SO …. online here we go.
As it’s a new decade and the 2010’s are of the past, I’m choosing to write about current things that mean something to me rather than continuing the story from my first blog.
January is resolution time and of course often times resolutions are not followed up. I’m not mad about the ‘hype’ surrounding the New Year’s resolution, however I love the concept of choosing a ‘Word’ for the year to represent and embody a direction you wish to move in that year. (There is a lot of info out there about ‘word of year’ and vision board – I particularly like Christine Kanes work.)
I find that if the word encompasses all areas of your life that it is so powerful – so ask yourself if your word includes physical; mental; spiritual; personal; finacial etc. For example if your word is ‘Health’ – that would comfortably fit within each category.
Once you have your word – do a vision board or a diary or make notes – preferably somewhere you can see it often. When I first did a vision board, I had images and words of things I’d like to achieve sometime and only a few specific goals. But the end of that year, I’d acomplished all the the specific goals and kinda improved in the vague areas (but it wasn’t measurable). It was a great lesson for me, so now I put images of exact things that I’d like to achieve in each area of my life – including the feelings of what these will bring.
With my NLP & Coaching clients we often use this kind of goal setting – words and vision boards – along with the conscious/subconscious mind work to get these powerful shifts in their lives and it’s super rewarding to get feedback on the great stuff that they achieve.
Short blog cos I dont have time to write more now. But before I have another non-published blog, I’m putting this out there.
Here’s to a great new decade! I’m grateful for it and excited to see what it brings.
