Just like the seasons, life is ever-changing, so it’s not abnormal or unhealthy for your wants and desires to shift also. Regardless of what anyone else has to say, you are always allowed to change your mind, and that also goes for your goals. If you have drifted from your original goals for 2016, or aren’t really sure if you have or haven’t, use the 3 steps below to achieve them before you bid a farewell to 2016…
1.) Ask yourself if your desires have shifted.
Stop and think about that for a long hard second. Do you still want the same things you did in January? Perhaps your true desires have in fact changed, but you might still hold yourself to an old blueprint that leaves you feeling heavy and uncertain of your future. Perhaps you wanted a promotion, but at your core you actually wanted a career change. Maybe you wanted to move to a new city, but now you’ve met a new special someone who lives in your current town.
The point is that life is short and we all have to expect the unexpected. We can plan all we want, but we don’t know exactly what will happen today, tomorrow, or the next. So it’s totally okay if your desires change, because life changes!
2.) Write down three specific things you really, really want.
If you want to move towards what you want, you first need to figure out what you want. Perhaps you realize that you do want the same things as you did in January; awesome! Maybe you realize that your wants have totally changed. Either way, figuring out what you want is necessary to get what you want.
So now ask yourself what three things you need to change between now and December to get what you want? Be as specific as you possibly can, and remember, no one knows what you truly want but you.
3. Set goals (and a timeline) for each desire.
You have two months left in 2016 to change your life. Maybe that doesn’t seem like a long time, but you can get a lot more accomplished than you may think.
You know what you want (review step 2), now map out a timeline and a plan to crush those goals. Below are 3 different scenarios, followed by what action steps you could start taking immediately.
Scenario 1: You want to travel abroad. What action steps can you start taking immediately?
– Research flights and hotels online.
– Start setting aside money for the trip and creating a budget.
– Buy the ticket.
Scenario 2: Earn money by selling your DIY jewellery online.
– Promote your side-gig and jewellery to your Facebook friends.
– Offer free jewellery pieces to 5 Instagram influencers or friends in exchange for social media exposure.
– Promote your one-of-a-kind jewellery everywhere you can.
Scenario 3: Get a raise at work.
– Create a project at work to show that you’re going the extra mile to your manager.
– Continue working harder and smarter.
– When the timing feels right, ask your boss for a brief meeting where you share your salary increase request and why you feel that you deserve it.
The beautiful thing is that if you’re truly inspired and motivated, you could probably do all of this in one month (or less). If you’re not feeling incredibly motivated at the moment, remember that our frustrations and lows are not meant to crush us, but to guide us and shape our future. The negatives are what convinces us to get out of the passenger seat and take action in our lives. If you do these 3 steps, you’ll see the power of reconnecting and becoming aligned with your desires; it’s truly magical.
Only when we get clear on what we really want and remind ourselves of just how capable we are, we radiate motivation and can’t help but take action. Those are the moments when you truly become unstoppable. So if you are starting this fall filled with confusion and discontent, remember the purpose of any negatives you’re currently going through are not to make you suffer; those negatives exist to push you to action.
Now, get ready, get set, go and get down to business.
