Confession Time.

Ok, I have a confession.  I failed at my New Years Resolution within the first THREE hours of the new year!  I only mildly, vaguely, kinda sorta committed to the idea of being a vegetarian in 2014.   So in the midst of champagne celebrations on New Years Eve, I was handed a chicken sandwich and my resolution was out the door. Alright, so resolutions shmesolutions.  Nobody likes them! They don’t work.  You end up just giving up when you feel a little depressed about failing at them so quickly.  What does actually work and is super exciting is goals! Setting a few clear, specific, and inspiring goals will change your year-- and your entire life.

I need to lose this extra weight from the holidays is soooo not inspiring to me. Blah. Ick. Get it away.

I try out three new classes every week  or  My boyfriend and I cook a new vegetarian meal together every Friday.  Uhh...excuse me but those goals actually sound pretty fun!

We are going to make 2014 the BEST year--the year you start living your dreams and having tons of fun.  I’m going to help you a bit.  Here are three simple steps to help you elevate this year to the next level of awesome.

3 steps to start living your dream life

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Three:

Get crystal clear on what your dream year and dream life actually looks like.  You can’t expect it to fall out of the sky, because even if it did--you wouldn’t recognize it because you don’t know what it is you want!  Take some time (like we’re talking 10 minutes), sit down and make a list.  Draw a picture. Create a board on pinterest.  Do some honest soul searching.   What does your ideal life, your ideal year really look like?   By ideal, I’m talking wildest dreams. Endless possibility.  Nothing is too crazy, too bold, too risky.  It’s your year to start being honest with yourself and start living like you mean it.

Where do you dream of living?  What do you daydream about doing for work?  Do you want to travel? Where do you want to go?  How do you take care of yourself?  Do you wish you could run a marathon?  Do you want to feel like you belong to a community? What does that look like to you?  What do you want to do for fun? What is important to you? What do you value? What have you always wanted to try? Heck...what would you do if you won a million dollars tomorrow?

Two:

Once you know what it is you really want, you can start setting some inspiring goals for yourself!  Goals give you a target,  that clear, specific spot to set your aim towards and ultimately reach.  Goal setting sets your dreams into motion and gets your creative, subconscious brain moving in the right direction, YOUR direction.  Your goals are 100% authentic to you and inspire you to take action.  Brian Tracy (goal setting guru that he is) says that, “People with clear, written goals accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine. Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.” Sounds pretty awesome, right?

I’m going to be delving a WHOLE lot more into goal setting, bucket lists, and dreams during my New Year’s Vision and Goals workshop during Hamptons Wellness Week (www.hamptonswellnessweek.com).  I hope you’ll join me then so we can get super clear, specific and inspired for 2014!

Finally, the NUMBER one thing you need to do to make 2014 your BEST year yet, is to get into action now!  Your dreams, goals and visions for your life are so beautiful and so perfect. The only way the world will ever see your greatness is if you choose greatness today.  Choose to show up for yoga class.  Choose to read that book, write that book, or give away that book!  Choose to eat your broccoli, kale and green beans.  Choose to spend time with the people who matter to you.  Choose to sign up for that race.  All it takes is one teeny tiny small action a day to bring you closer to your wildest dreams.  You are what’s going to take your year to the next level.  So many adventures are waiting, so many melt your heart snapshot moments, and so many “hell yeah, I did that!”s are just beyond these initial footsteps.  Commit to choosing your dream life, and you will have it.  It’s going to be an awesome year!!

Can’t wait to see you January 16th to talk more about your goals and to set you up with an action plan for the year! See you soon!

Love, love,

Woo! It’s time to celebrate! A new year is on it’s way! Every one I talk to has a good feeling about 2014.  It’s going to be an incredible year...and so I’ve put together a little exercise to get you thinking about your new year now and to fully set yourself up for success in 2014.

Take ten minutes to quickly answer the next series of questions.  Set a time limit and do not spend more than 30 seconds on each.  Your first reaction is the right one. Here we gooo! 

 

What was your greatest joy in 2013? 

 

What unexpected pleasures and people came into your life?

 

What was your greatest disappointment?

 

What are you bummed you didn’t accomplish? 

 

 

 Who did you hurt over the past year?

 

 

What would you do if you won a million dollars?

 

 

What is your most important goal right now?

 

 

What would you do if you knew this was your last year to live?

 

 

What have you always wanted to try but never have?

  As we move into a new year, it is important to recognize the good and the bad from the year before.  A fresh start involves a whole lot of forgiveness and letting go.  So look those bruises and blisters from 2013 in the eye.   Forgive yourself.  Forgive the people who did you wrong.  Take a deep breath and let it all go. Leave 2013 where it belongs.

Stepping into 2014, how can you bring your goals to the forefront of your mind and your life?  How will you take action to make them happen? Set up a game plan.  Create a schedule.  Register for that big race.  Don’t wait.  Do it now.

What have you been waiting and waiting to do? What has been a dream of yours for a long time?  Where do you desperately want to go?  And how can you make that happen this year?

Time is all you’ve got.  One year is all you’ve got.  What will you make happen for yourself in the next 365 days?

If you need a kick in the butt getting it together, I’m totally here for you!   We can sit down and create an awesome, inspiring, gorgeous action plan to make 2014 the BEST year of your life.  That’s all I want for you.

I am also holding a Vision and Goals Workshop during Hamptons Wellness Week! Check out all the details at www.hamptonswellnessweek.com.  It's going to be an amazing week and I'd love to see you there!

You’re incredible! Have a beautiful New Year’s Eve! I’ll toast to your dreams at mid-night;)
