As the year draws to a close, it’s the perfect time to start looking forward to 2018. What would happen if you were truly present in the year to come? What would it look like to approach the year with a fearless attitude, clear mind and full heart? What could you achieve?
2018 is your year. You are in the diver’s seat. So with that being said, we wanted to share some ideas for how we’re going to plan an inspiring year ahead!
Get Clear on your DREAMs
We truly believe in the power of visualisation. When you are very clear on what you want to achieve and can see it in your head (or even better on a Vision Board), it’s more likely to come to you. Many people go through their lives not really knowing what they want or what they stand for, but not you! Why not make this the year you write down a list of dreams? Then start working towards them!
Make a Plan and DO
Dreams will, of course, only remain dreams unless you make a plan to DO something about them. Once you’ve visualised what you want to achieve this year, spend some time to map out how you will turn them into a reality. Get practical and set yourself deadlines. Schedule in time each week or month to work on your projects. Write a list of steps you need to take to achieve each dream.
Did you know that studies have shown that the simple act of writing down your goals means you’re more likely to achieve them?
ENJOY each moment
Life was made for living. While it’s great to have big dreams and to work really hard, it’s also important to find balance or you might face burn out. This year, think about the things that make you happy and actually schedule in time to enjoy them. Set yourself rules, for example to not look at your emails outside of work hours, and really stick to them! Check in regularly to ask yourself how you’re feeling and whether you’re making enough time for you.
SHARE with others
The people in our lives are so important. Think about the people who make you happy and spend more time with them this year! Why not reach out to a group of friends and schedule in a monthly dinner? Or book in a weekend away now so that everyone is free.
Are there people who you look up to who could offer you guidance and help you achieve your dreams? Reach out to them now! Create an inspiring community and connect with like-minded people. On the flip-side, is there anyone you could help and offer guidance to? Is there a charity initiative that you admire? Now’s the time to sign up to volunteer your time and give back.
We really hope these ideas set you up for an inspiring 2018. Be sure to let us know how you’re planning to make this year your best yet by connecting with us on social media.
