For many years I struggled with the whole goal setting thing. The only goals I ever set were set just to appease people telling me that I had to have them. I never stuck with these goals and now I see why. I wasn’t vested, they didn’t have any real meaning. They were normally financially based goals and money isn’t what ultimately motivates me. So what was missing? I didn’t know and understand what my success really looked like. I now see this as the first step in goal setting.
What is your definition of success? Most often it seems that any talk of success is centered around business and when we talk about like we talk about happiness. Well, I just spent a week enjoying a visit with my mother, family and friends in Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota and it really got me reflecting on what I want in life. It reminded me of what my success looks like. I want to spend more time with family, travel more and participate in more outdoor activities.
Do you want to be happy? What does your happy look like? What do you need in order to achieve your happy, your success?
Our topic of discussion this month is Your 2020 Goals and I hope this will help get some more folks on the right path to setting their goals, putting together plans they can follow that will help them to actually achieve their goals and achieve their success.
