Have Your Set Your 2017 Goals Yet?

With the new year being just a few weeks away, this is the perfect time to set your goals, intentions, and dreams for 2017. Doing this will automatically set you up for a successful year.  
Goal setting is an important way to:

Decide what you want to achieve in your life.
Separate what’s important from what’s irrelevant, or a distraction.
Motivate yourself.
Build your self-confidence, based on achievement of your goals.

Do you feel like you just don’t have time to set and maintain goals?

We all have busy lives and daily obligations that can prevent us from keeping our minds set on our goals. But that does not have to be the case. Make goal setting a priority by setting aside an hour so before the new year to write down your goals. When you write down your goals, they take on a life of their own. The written word is so much more powerful than keeping it as a thought because thoughts come and go. Writing down your goals makes them more concrete and real. Studies show that goals are more likely to be achieved when you put them in writing

Ask yourself the following questions as a guide as you prepare your list of goals for 2017. 

10 steps to Create a Winning Vision Board

Earlier this year I facilitated an online training on

how to create a winning vision board that gets

results. I can attest that if done correctly, vision

boards really do work! Since January I have had

3 items from my vision board manifest.

Do you have a vision for your life? What do you want the rest of your life to be like?

One of my favorite quotes by Louise Hay says, ‘Let the rest of your life be the best of your life.’

Take the time to get really clear about what you want in life. Whether you visualize it, write it down, or represent it in pictures in the form of a Vision Board. This is a powerful first step to making what you want a reality.

The idea behind creating a Vision Board is that when you surround yourself with images of who and what you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, or where you want to go, your life will begin to change and reflect those images and those desires. Vision Boards add clarity to your desires and feeling to your visions. I believe it’s one of the most powerful and valuable visualization tools that you can make available to yourself.

Here are my 10 Steps to Creating a Winning Vision Board.

A Clean Start: Clear The Clutter Before The New Year

With the new year being just a few weeks away, this

is the perfect opportunity to clear clutter for the mind,

body, and soul by clearing out what no longer serves

us well. Letting go of the old, worn out or stale is a

powerful action that creates new space for fresh, beautiful,

new beginnings!

Begin by getting rid of all forms of clutter. When your space is in order, your thinking will be clearer and allow space for positive energy to flow. It will also enable your environment to be a healthier and happier place. Those things, people, or ideas that once served a useful purpose in our lives, but now are no longer useful, get rid of them! For example, if you look in your pantry, you are likely to find some items that expired a long time ago. These things are not safe to eat, and you will never use them, but for some reason, they remain on the shelf taking up valuable space. Look in your closet. There are probably clothes in there that you know you will never wear again. But, year after year, they remain in your closet taking up valuable space and leaving a cluttered mess. A good rule to follow is if you have not used an item in the past 12 months, get rid of it. This applies to clothing, household appliances, and outdoor equipment. 

There is also mental clutter that clogs our brains with old ideas and memories that do not serve us well. If we don’t clear the clutter from our lives, we aren’t able to let new feelings, experiences, projects, visions and relationships flow in. We often can become so focused on wanting to add so much more to our lives that we don’t realize that what we get rid of can have the most profound impact of all.

Cleanse your soul by praying and meditating every day, even if it is just for a few minutes. Sit quietly for a few moments. Learn just to be still with yourself. As you do this, focus on your breathing by breathing in positive thoughts and breathing out negative thoughts. Meditation has been shown to lower blood pressure and improves overall health. I truly believe that spending time daily in prayer and meditation is uplifting and cleansing the soul. CLICK HERE to download my ‘Remove negative thoughts’ mediation.
