“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” – Alice Walker
Don’t listen to the haters. 2018 is a year for becoming. Potential is unleashed when the future as you see it – is defined as an actionable goal!
“There is no passion to be found in playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”- Nelson Mandela
Sorting out the Goalposts
“If you don’t make the time to work on creating the life that you want, you’re going to spend a lot of time dealing with a life you don’t want.” — Kevin Ngo
Setting goals is more than admirable. Deciding what needs to change and defining what you want your future to look like is the foundation to creating positive change. Begin here.
Framework for Change
“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama
If you already have your finger on the pulse of your dream, rock on – you’re ready to start bringing it to life by creating an action plan.
If you aren’t quite sure where you’re going, that’s okay. Take some time to get introspective and have a good think about what energizes you, what values you hold dear, and the type of world you want to have a part in creating! Any of those things can serve as starting points from which to identify what comes next!
Making a Plan
“A dream becomes a goal when action is taken toward its achievement.” – Bo Bennett
“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.” – Rosa Parks
Here’s where many good intentions get derailed. Old habits are hard to break, time is hard to find, and the list goes on. Getting serious about achieving your goals means making a plan that includes real things you can do to get you started on your path!
First Steps First
Once you have your future defined it is time to make an action plan. Your plan doesn’t have to be Superhero-style, complex and grandiose.
Don’t get overwhelmed with planning the final battle; instead start small with what you can do today.
Making the crucial first step can often be the one of the biggest hurdles. Surmount and conquer the ‘what-if’s’ with a resounding ‘Done’.
“Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” – Oprah Winfrey
Part of the power of the first step is that ideas often take on a life of their own. Read a case example here [Link to Article 4]. That’s why you should be poised! Don’t be surprised if putting your plan into action starts the ball rolling and gets creativity flowing. Innovation can happen in the most surprising places. Hold tight to your resolve & integrity – be ready to make the most of the opportunities you begin creating for yourself!
