Of all the content I’ve posted this week, I can honestly say, this post – 6 Strategies for Reaching Your Goals in 2018 complete with video – is probably the one I’m most nervous about and it has nothing to do with the content.
Almost a year ago my baby sister suggested I start creating more videos. In the moment, it sounded super exciting and I was wholeheartedly on board. But nearly every time I had the chance to post a video, I found myself rattling off a list of excuses as to why I should “hold off.”
Fear is crazy like that, you know? It will tell you all sorts of lies.
In the end, I struggled with that fear and those lies for nearly a year and as 2017 came to a close, I knew it had gotten the best of me.
I thought long and hard about the goals I wanted to achieve in 2018 before I ever wrote one sentence down on paper. One overarching theme that kept showing up over and over again was that I wanted to connect more with others. In my heart I know this is because I was so disconnected after the death of my grandparents and my beloved Talladega, I barely even recognized myself at the end of the year.
I know 2017 was not an easy year for some of you guys either.
But I don’t want us to live in fear.
I want us to live the life we were created to live – the good, the bad, the happy, the sad, the crazy wild adventures and the quiet moments that stir our souls like a whisper.
So today, I’m stepping out from behind the laptop and in front of the camera to share with you 6 Strategies for Reaching Your Goals in 2018. I’m also sharing a January PowerSheets Update (I love them!) and the reason that gets me hopping on the treadmill every single morning!
I completely understand the end of January can seem like a “make or break” month for goals but you guys, don’t believe a word of that, it’s just not true. January is a great time to tweak what is working well for you and to reassess what is not working well so you can direct yourself and your goals on a more solid path.
If you haven’t set goals yet, if you feel like your goals aren’t “big enough,” if you feel overwhelmed by the process or you just need a bit of a pep talk, I’m so glad you’re here – this video is for you.
Let’s do this…sweaty palms and all ?
It’s so awesome to celebrate with you guys no matter how big or small your victory. I’d love to hear one way you pushed past the fear to reach an important goal this month in the comments section below!
