Vision 2016

I’ve worked with goal setting since 1997 and I can tell you that setting goals and keeping on track, will make a huge difference to YOUR  success.

Things don’t always go as you plan.

But the good news is that there are always key learnings and – in fact – sometimes things go even better than what you had planned for.

 

Setting goals and having a compelling vision for 2016 is key to YOUR success.

Have no fear.

Long gone are the days when I would use a one-fit-all, linear goal setting system.

Forget about that.

Now I have invented On Track Mastery (OTM) which is customized to fit YOUR exact needs and challenges:

Why OTM works:

  1. OTM is holistically based; if you have personal blockages to success we will address that and help shift your assumptions and beliefs so that you become free to achieve the success that you want.
    xx
  2. OTM draws upon native american tools such as the medicine wheel (for evaluation), as well as a variety of visual tools, like drawing your vision which will keep it memorable and help implement lasting results.
    xx
  3. OTM provides you will a clear model and concrete tools that are customized to meet YOUR specific needs and challenges. Not only will you be able to create a juicy vision for 2016 but OTM also helps you stay on track with your success.

Some important components to setting goal setting goals and visioning:

  1. Do take the time out to first make a thorough evaluation of this past year:
    x
    – What is there to celerate?
    – What didn’t go as you had planned?
    – What have you learned so far?
    x
    Don’t‘ skip this part as setting goals and vision on top of something which is not working simply won’t bring you the results that you are looking for.
    x
  2. Do keep it simple & memorable
    x
    – Less is often more, don’t overkill, small goals really DO matter
    – Build from your success, one simple step at a time
    – Make your goals matter, why do you want, what you want?
    x
  3. Do have a simple follow-up system ready
    xxx
    – You need a clear follow-up structure
    – You need concrete tools and strategies
    – You need the support of a group or mentor

– Keep this in mind, research clearly shows that we are 6 times more likely to reach our goals when we have the support of a mentor, or group.

Delicious December – The Perfect Time for Goal and Vision setting!

Vision 2015 December doesn’t have to be all about wrapping the last couple of Christmas presents, baking chocolate chip cookies, getting your cards posted just in time to make it before Christmas, or having friends over for a glass of spicy Mülled wine for a cosy time in front of the fireplace.

To me december is especiallly delicious BECAUSE this is the perfect time to start creating a compelling vision for 2015; this is the time to design what you want for 2015 …

 

And I am hoping that I can inspire you to have it be something that you look forward to rather than those not so exciting “new years resolutions” that may be honorable enough but quite often way too superficial to have a real and lasting impact on your life.

So I confess; I’m a goal & vision setting junkie – I absolutely love goal and vision setting!

My first goal setting / vision procedure was way back in 1997 and quite simple; I asked myself only 2 questions: “What do I want more of and what do I want less of?” 

As simple as these questions may sound I don’t think they will ever go out of fashion.

Even one, simple question like that could change your life for the more positive; that is of course if you take your desires to heart and take appropriate actions towards it.

Although many of the themes remain universal such as for example: relationships, love, generating income – maybe even start a business of your own, or writing “that” book (you know what I am talking about) –  we can thankfully always improve.

My own goal setting routine has certainly developed over the years; I now hand write everything into an art journal and illustrate it with the use of lots of illustrations and this is a process that is taking place all through “Delicious December”. 

While this may not be for you, I will provide you with a few tips as how to get started:

  1. Schedule time for your goal and vision setting. Goal and vision setting is no small stuff. This is about YOUR life and making plans that will have you wake up happy every morning because you have a clear vision to follow. This takes time. Take out your calendar, grab a pen and schedule some time for it.
    x
  2. Have fun with it. Goal and vision setting can be highly individualized depending on what works for you. If you are more of a visual type you may want to create any of the following: A painting, a collage, a Power Point show or a combination of words and picture. Color coding is also a great way to make your vision more clear.

If these first couple of tips got you curious I encourage you to sign up for my newsletter and you will get the last 4 tips that will help you make your vision for 2015 compelling & juicy!

If you would like me to support you in creating a compelling vision for 2015 I am here to help you in what ever way best suits you –  be that visual goal setting which may take you on a soul’s journey, or simply creating some targetable goals for 2015 – I will be very happy to support you with that.

I will draw from my tools box of personal goal setting since 1997, many great coaching tools, as well as art journaling – and I also provide you with great strategies & concrete tools for actually implementing your goals, so that you will be able to take continued action rather than “fall out of your vision” too soon.

Resistance!

If you want to rely on certainty “resistance” is a (very) safe choice. Resistance seems to be part of our DNA and something we all get to experience at various stages of our lives.

Be that resistance to learn something new or even resistance to success.

My mentor used to tell me, “what you want (be that promotion, personal power or prosperity) is on the other side of resistance”. Whenever she said that I honestly didn’t have a clue about what she was talking about.

What on earth did she mean by that?

Wasn’t I “clever enough”, having spent many thousand of dollars on my own personal education and wasn’t I a fully qualified coach? Well, truth be told I probably wasn’t as smart as I thought I was.

The key that I learned is that resistance resides in the mental department.

And if you try to approach resistance with mental tools (like I did) and like so many of us are taught, there isn’t the slightest chance of changing anything except “rearranging a few furniture” on the surface of your mind.

I prefer to take to Einstein’s advice. Einstein said something to the extend of “you cannot solve a problem with the same kind of thinking that caused the problem in the first place.”

To that I would add that most of the time you really cannot solve the problem by thinking! You have to act; check out of the mental department and start to rely on the wisdom of your gut feeling.

And once you start to do that (let your brain take a rest it probably needs it) and take direct action – which is directed more by your gut feeling than your intellect – that is when life start to change for the better – at least that’s been my own experience for all that it’s worth.

So why am I talking about resistance in the first place?

Because resistance could very well be what is keeping you stuck in your comfort zone.

Maybe you know what you want. For example, reduce your level of stress so that you can sleep at night and stop biting your nails, or perhaps simply getting started on writing the book that’s been on your mind for years.

But you are still procrastinating because you are resisting the change. Don’t get me wrong. Resistance can certainly be good at appropriate times and it isn’t always bad.

But here is the thing.

Most often resistance is developed at a very young age and although it may have been a good strategy at the time being to be on guard and judge everything as good or bad, this strategy probably doesn’t work for you if you are an adult person who wants to create real results.

I mean, results that REALLY matter to your heart, your soul, and your bank account.

So how do you go about breaking your personal wall (of resistance) down?

Here’s a couple of tips to help you get started:
