Happy New Year! I’m so excited that this is my first post of the new year and I hope that everyone has been doing well! I don’t know about you, but I still cannot believe it’s 2017 already! However, I am happy to be back on the blog, sharing some great news, motivation, and encouragement as we reset and prepare to be greater this year. I also hope that you are putting your writings from your journaling in your copy of my Manifestation Journal (For Peace & Healing) to action and setting goals to guarantee your success and progress!
If you are signed up for my Humble Uplifts you got my first Newsletter of the year as well so you may have heard about my theme for the year. I mentioned that I have been planning and writing all of my goals for the next 18 months. First, I want to explain that I am very strategic as to why I set my goals for 18 months rather than just a year or even 5. I often get very overwhelmed when I have to be detailed too far ahead. In addition to that, we all know that things are constantly changing. Therefore, I believe, as my mentor in my head, Paul Carrick Brunson has said, that it’s more manageable to plan this way.
As I looked over all that I have coming up this year I came to the conclusion that I should set a theme for the year to keep me motivated and focused. Then it came to me one day as I thought about the things that are important things for me to accomplish. The theme for this year has got to be “Dig Deeper, Be Decisive & Doubt Less.”
I could be predictable and only use one word to describe my goals, but there was so much more that I knew I yearned for in addition to digging deeper. I’ll explain further…
Dig Deeper |”Dig Deeper” means to dig deeper within myself and be more transparent, be more free and build a deeper relationship with God. It also means that I want to go outside of the box with spreading my message of peace and healing and helping women find peace and healing in their lives so they can stop making the same mistakes. I mean, going beyond just social media posting and reaching more people in person. I intend on doing more speaking engagements and in person live events to allow me to impact more women and allow me to feel much more connected to them as well. With that said, look forward to more announcements having to do with me speaking and other exciting projects that I’m working on and exciting news regarding the development of this Humble Sunshine brand into official business entity :-).
“Be Decisive”| Don’t get it twisted, I do have some decision making ability. As a matter of fact this was on my focus list for 2016. However, have you ever had that one challenge that you’re not struggling terribly with, but could use a touch up? That’s decisiveness for me. I’m proud to say however, that even though I may still be working on it I am so much further than I once was.
“Doubt Less” | This is another one that is pretty self explanatory, however, we may not always realize that we are placing doubt onto ourselves, our situations or other people. Be intentional and optimistic when speaking about yourself, to yourself, and about and to other people. Be sure to speak life into yourself and others. Trust that when you speak you have the power to speak anything into existence. It can be as simple as setting a savings goal too low or questioning the possibility of you landing that new job. Eliminating these doubtful/ skeptical thoughts from your life will open many doors that you may have never even realized were closed in your life.
Have you set your goals and plans for this year yet? Have you set a theme to keep you focused on what is most important? Are any of these themes things that you could benefit from by focusing on them as well? Be sure that you’ve gotten started on your goals. The sooner you start, the sooner you will begin to see results. Get a goal planner to act as a resource to help hold you accountable. Let me know how it’s going!
