For some reason, while celebrating over last weeks holiday weekend, I found myself really thinking about this concept of independence…of freedom….
The year is now half over and if you’re like most folks, you probably made some resolutions (or otherwise set goals) at the start of the year. I wonder – what did you declare to yourself that you would be “free from” in 2011? What did you declare your independence from?
January 1st is a time of declared promises..of fresh starts. Does any of this sound familiar?
In 2011, I will..
..gain more vitality.
..find a better job.
..make more money.
..have more confidence.
..generate more revenue.
..attend church more regularly.
..do better at saving money.
..go back to school.
What other BHAGS’s (Big Hairy Audacious Goals) made it on your list?
Are you on track? If so, GREAT! Keep the momentum going.
If not, what happened? Are you still trying to accomplish your goals or did you get so far off track you just quit?
If so, I’ve got news for you —–
The calendar may say July 12th but EVERY DAY is January 1st (theoretically of course). Each day provides a new opportunity to begin again. To pick yourself up, dust yourself off, recommit and make it happen. The thing about goals is that in order to move toward something, we must declare ourselves free of something else….
..limiting belief systems
..and on and on and on…
So—-what goals will you set (or re-ignite) for the remainder of the year? What will you declare yourself free from for the remainder of 2011? Take some time this week to think about what you want your life to look like by years end – health, professional, relationship, financial, spiritual etc and get going!
It’s never too late!
You were born to be great.
