Five secret tips you need to keep & accomplish new year’s resolutions!

I find this time of year to be so exciting; there is hope and vision of what the year may hold for us. Dreams of big achievements and more. We set goals, make new year’s resolutions and vision boards.

Then somewhere in the middle of January reality kicks in, the wheels come off, we lose our mojo and just like that January 22nd becomes the most depressing day of the year.

But what would it be like if you could keep your focus and dedication? If you could be in possibility mode all year long, what would you be able to accomplish then?

Imagine what your life and business would be like if you could accomplish all your goals.

Here are my five secret (tried and tested) tips to keep you focused and motivated to do exactly that:

1) Make sure you set goals that are SMART.
This means your goals are specific; they are measurable and achievable/attainable, your goals are realistic (and I like to add – somewhat risky), and last but not least they have a timeline (deadline).

2) Know why you want to accomplish these goals and be sure that they hold intrinsic value to you.
Intrinsic goals are goals that will personally bring you joy etc. when they are achieved. E.g. you want to lose 20lbs because it will boost your confidence (intrinsic) vs. you want to lose 20lbs, so other people will call you sexy (extrinsic). Or you want to get a higher paying job because you want to travel more (intrinsic) vs. it will please your spouse (extrinsic).

3) Install daily positive anchors and reminders of your goals and what it will be like when you achieve them.
Set reminders in your calendar, pictures on your desk or quotes as your screen saver. Make sure that where ever you turn you have positive reinforcements to help you stay motivated and focused.

4) Join a mastermind or get a coach.
Both of these will give you the accountability you need and will help you come up with effective strategies and inspiration to achieve your goals. If you need a mastermind – read more about joining my Savvy Success Masterminds here; or if you’re interested, remember you can book an intro call for private coaching sessions here.)

5) Forgive yourself and get back at it.
Be sure to be kind to yourself if you slip up or make a mistake. This one may be last on the list, but it shouldn’t be viewed as less important than the others. Practicing forgiveness and self-love will save you time and dramatically improve your chances of achieving your goals.

By using these tips I’ve personally been able to accomplish so much more and I’ve also helped my clients to do the same.

Happy New Year!

Two weeks to your best year ever!

Ok, ok, so we did the countdown, had the big party and here we are in the much anticipated 2016. Personally I am super excited! Yes, I know, I know…sometimes the whole thing of a ‘new year a new you’ is such a cliché.

I remember the first time I wrote down all my new year’s resolutions, I had had a bit of a tough year and was feeling lost and lonely. My list contained the usual: everything I wanted to change, everything I wanted to accomplish blah, blah. If memory serves me right I managed to achieve a few items on the list, but I am pretty sure most of my resolutions were already turning to dust by the end of January. That was before I learned the secret formula to achieving goals!

I often hear people say they don’t bother with New Years resolutions anymore – what’s the point? By the end of January you’ll have broken them all in any case.

And yep, I get it, dreaming big or creating new healthy wholesome habits is hard when you don’t use the right resolution planning process coupled with the right mindset!

Tomorrow night I’m going to party like this!

I love this time of the year. The last few days of 2014, when you get to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new. To me the beginning of a new year is almost like turning a page or maybe better: starting a new book. Excitement and motivation of dreams and goals that you can accomplish. The promise to yourself that THIS year is going to be your year.

So what dreams and ideals do you have for this year? What do you want to accomplish?
I know, I know – you probably don’t even make New Year’s resolutions anymore right? They say that  around Jan 22nd most people have broken all those resolutions, so what’s the point?
What if I told you it could all be different this year? You can set meaningful goals and construct clear ways to achieve your dreams. I’ll show you how to do it at my Pilates Pamper workshop on Feb 8th, 2015. Reserve your spot here.

The workshop will provide you with a safe and intimate environment where you and your priorities are the sole focus. We’ll enjoy Pilates, High Tea and Mimosas in one of Boston’s most luxurious building’s sky lounge. While taking in the magnificent views, you’ll dig deep into your goals and create clear steps to achieve them. You’ll also enjoy a mani-pedi and leave feeling refreshed and pampered.  You’ll have a concrete action plan to achieving you goals. When real world distractions slow you down, you’ll have a direct path to guide you back to progress.

 

This year will be different: You hold the power to make it spectacular!Take back control now.

I hope you have a great time ringing in the new year and I am excited for what 2015 will bring us! Thank you for your continued support and readership.

Out with the old, in with the new.

A couple of weeks ago, I had all sorts of brilliant ideas I wanted to implement before the new year. I very quickly realized I was biting off more than I could chew, that I was a little too late for that.

Instead of pushing the issue and not enjoying the prospect of those new ideas, I decided to take my foot off the accelerator. I figured it would be way better for my business to use this last month to reflect and plan for 2015. I want to set myself up for a successful year and really appreciate all the wonderful things that happened in 2014.

Does that scenario resonate with you? Would you like to do the same? Here’s my little secret recipe to make the most of the coming new year.

1. Log off and connect. If you follow me on social media, you might already have noticed that things are a little more silent on my feed. Disconnecting from all the social platforms helps you to be more present and connect with what’s happening right now.

2. Calm minds are more creative. Creativity happens when you’re not pushing it. Ever noticed how you have the most brilliant plan or solution when you’re going for a run, taking a shower, or while considering a totally unrelated topic? Your subconscious mind is always working for you, and it will come up with the perfect solution for you. You have to trust.

3. Do more of what works and forget what doesn’t. OK, now that your mind is calmer and clearer, start thinking of what worked really well for you this year. How can you build on it for the next one? What didn’t work? Leave it and come up with a new plan.

4. Focus on your new dreams and goals for 2015. What steps do you need to take to put them in action?

December can feel like a whirlwind, and with so many obligations, it’s easy to neglect yourself. Remember to be a little selfish and take time for yourself. Your success depends on it, and when you diminish yourself, you’re also cheating your loved ones by giving them a watered-down version of you.
