Happy New Year

We start the year off with a bang, setting some fantastic goals. Two weeks later, and sometimes even sooner, those goals are forgotten and old habits have crept back in. Does this sound familiar?

Well…you are not alone, as for most people, New Years Resolutions just don’t work.

We all want them to, why can’t we stick to them?
Well, I can tell you why and I can even show you how to make them stick as I have been there and done it myself.

To make 2009 your best year ever, these are the steps you need to take:

(Each step below is important so make sure you read through each one systematically.)

  1. Make Your Mission Statement
  2. Set Your Goals
  3. Visualize to Stay Focused
  4. Action, Why It’s So Important
  5. How to Stay Motivated and Committed

I have talked to many people who are glad that 2008 is over as it has been quite a tough year for many, particularly with the current global financial situation. And now we have a wonderful year ahead of us to make a new fresh start.

One thing is sure; we all need a better approach to our so called “resolutions”. There are a few steps you need to take to get there. I did not tell you it is easy, it needs a bit of effort, a bit of courage and some motivation, but most of all you need to commit.

There are heaps of tools to use out there, and I have used a lot of them! Trust me; I used to be “the queen of no commitment”.

Let’s make 2009 different. Below, I have listed the best ways to stay focused, motivated and on track with your goals for 2009.

Start by Making Your Mission Statement

Why is a mission statement so important?
A mission statement is usually only a paragraph long. It is a clarification of what you really want out of life. It is also a commitment to yourself that has specific and measurable outcomes and a deadline for accomplishing that outcome.
It is important to always have a mission statement as it keeps you on track and it is absolutely the best way to reach success in life.

I have often found it a bit tricky to write my mission statement, but I found this tool on the Nightingale Conant website that is excellent!

Set Goals That Will Work for YOU

Setting goals is crucial. But remember that your mission statement helps you set goals based on what is truly right for you. When you have finalized your mission statement you can really focus on the goals that are in line with your values and therefore will make you get to the destination much quicker.

There are many programs out there, but I would recommend going to the guys that have done this really successfully for ages, like:

Brian Tracey – The Ultimate Goals Program

Zig Ziglar – Goals

Let’s not forget our kids!

It is important to give your child a true sense of purpose as well as helping them to develop a knack for achieving great things. This is your chance to assist your child to easily achieve goals.
‘Go for Your Goals’ is also designed to answer all your questions about these life-making topics in a thorough parent’s guide (and workbooks for kids of course). This is a program developed by us at Global Secrets, so go ahead and check it out! It is available in two formats, hard copy or e-book.

Go for Your Goals – for Kids

Visualize – This is the fun part!

The most powerful way to manifest your goals is by visualizing them.
By looking at a picture of your goal or dream daily with a strong desire, you will start attracting it in your life.

I use this brilliant visualization tool that helps you to create and maintain your affirmations and visualizations in a very powerful way. It is a software program called “Vision Board”. Use this fantastic tool to create a Vision Board with self chosen pictures, music and your personally formulated affirmations, which will help you to achieve the goals you have set in all areas of your life. Your Vision Board acts as a screen saver on your computer, or you can set it up to pop up whenever you like so that it is constantly ‘in your face’ when you are at the computer.

You can read more about “Vision Board” here

There are also a couple of other programs that I have tried and would recommend:
MindMovies –
Dream Manifesto –

Now – Action!

It is simply not as easy as sitting down on the couch; start visualizing and it will appear, just like magic. No, no, no… There is work to be done. You have now got your goals and you have started visualizing, great! Next step – turn those goals into reality. The best way to do this is to look at each goal and break them down to small tasks; you continue to break them down till you are absolutely certain you will be able to achieve the task. And just take one task at a time.

A question to ask yourself, do you feel excited about your goals?
If you are not, you are on the wrong track.

Stay Motivated and Committed

This is probably the hardest task of them all!
How do you do this when you are constantly faced with difficult problems and situations? How about taking a leaf out of Donald Trump’s book “Think Big”

“You must become very good at finding creative solutions
to what appear to be impossible problems”.

Stay focused on the end result, keep on going and never give up.

I have subscribed to a few motivational quotes newsletters, but the absolute best one is Mike Dooley’s (teacher from The Secret) ‘Notes from the Universe’. It makes me smile or laugh out loud at times, but most of all it keeps me motivated on a daily basis.

“Notes from the Universe” is another f*ree tool, so go ahead and subscribe to it, it is well worth it.
