So here’s something scary for me… yay?
I’m not very good at setting goals. I’m not really sure why, it’s just not something that is a strength of mine. I think that it stems primarily from fear. Fear that I won’t make it to the goal, and then I’ll have to face that failure. Fear that if I do make it to the goal, then what the heck do I do next? Fear of the unknown.
These really silly reasons to not set goals remind me of a quote that I love:
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Isn’t it funny how we can have such faith in some things, but not in ourselves and our own abilities? Faith in God first and foremost for me, but after that, shouldn’t we have faith in ourselves? What the heck is up with that? Why do we sell ourselves short?
SO. In the interest of making changes in my life and business, I’ve decided to make some goals for the month of March and put them out there for everyone to see. That really scares me people, truly. But not only is it a huge part of the changes that will continue to happen in the future, it’s part of embracing my One Little Word – CONFIDENCE. Because if I can’t have confidence in myself, then why would others?
I need to set goals, give myself permission to fail, and get right back up and try again. This is what I try to teach Kaden as a mom… that we fall down so that we can get right back up and try again. So I need to be willing to embrace those words in my own life, and in my business. Do as I say, not as I do right? No more!
With all of that said, here are the things that I would like to accomplish in the month of March. I realize they’re not huge goals but baby steps right? They’re things I need to do and get DONE, and things that will move me in the right direction.
- Continue game night once a month! (personal)
- Write out the profile of my ideal clients
- Prepare everything I need for a corporate project that is upcoming
- Finish one business related book – and WRITE OUT the homework type stuff!
- Gear up new aspect of my business to be launched May 1 – ongoing, this won’t be completed in March but will be worked on. :)
- Keep working on my neglected gratitude journal, regularly!
So there we have it people… now you can all hold me accountable. Umm… really scary for me! But a move in the right direction.
Happy Wednesday – hump day! Make it awesome, and encourage someone today. Let your kind words make someone else’s day.
