I admit it I love making resolutions for the new year. I also really love keeping them. Id like to think that I place realistic expectations on myself when I set resolutions and or goals. Yesterday while I was out on my run I was thinking of writing this post. I have been seeing so much about New Years Resolution and how many people have such a hard time sticking to them. I find being in an accountability group of sorts is extremely helpful. I am in several group on Facebook that help motivate and keep me accountable towards my fitness goals. Please join our group eat run bake blog on Facebook. There you can find the motivation you need to eat healthy and get fit while having fun and bouncing ideas that work off other like minded people. If your goal is to excel in your career this year and perhaps find financial freedom please join us in Spark Your Rockstar group in Facebook. Spark your Rockstar is a community made by Carolyn Rim. Carolyn helped me spark the idea of this website. She is an amazingly motivated woman and spending anytime at all with this woman will motivate you to dig deeper and set goals that can be met!
What goals do you have in motion for yourself in 2016? I was on a call the other day about how to make 2016 my best year ever. I am convinced that this year will meet up to that standard. I made 4 goals. I wrote them down. I wrote about what needed to happen for me to meet the goals and I wrote about how I will feel once I have accomplished the goals I set.
Take advantage of this New Year. If you are like me starting a New year and new calendar is a blank canvas of potential for making new commitments and goals and sticking to them. I am accountable today. I am no longer the person I was with no goals and no direction and no drive. I love my life and only want to add value to it and to the lives of the people around me.
This week I started a new training plan for my first running event in 2016. I have shared this goal with others who are set to run the event with me. We will hold each other accountable by talking about our training runs. Make people aware of your goal they can help you get where you need to be. I know this to be 100% true. Many people know my story and if you don't, know this, everything I have today I got through being around other like minded people that had the same or similar life goals as I do. For the longest time my goal was just to not use one day at a time. Now that I have showed myself that I can do that my goals have grown and grown.
My goals for 2016:
Run a 50 mile event.
Reach the Rank of Silver with doTERRA by September.
Spend less time on my phone and social media while In my home and in the presence of my family.
Yes not all of my goals are glamorous but they are realistic and they are attainable through hard work and dedication. I am so pumped for this new year. I know its going to be amazing!
