20/20: Bring Your Goals into Sharp Focus

20/20: Bring Your Goals into Sharp Focus

| February 05, 2020

“It’s your attitude at the beginning that determines success or failure.” 

Now that January has passed, reflect upon your year so far. Did you make New Year’s resolutions? Have you stuck with them? Still going strong? 

According to U.S. News & World Report, about 80% of resolutions fail by February ...

Why do most resolutions fail? We don’t have a clear purpose. We bite off more than we can chew. We feel overwhelmed. We get distracted. We quit because we don’t see immediate results. The list goes on and on. 

Changing habits is difficult, but you can create the life you desire. It’s worth it!

First, focus on what you want to bring into your life. Clearly define what success looks like to you. Now visualize your achievements. 

What does it feel like to have what you want? 

About 60,000* thoughts come into our brains every day.  How many of your thoughts are causing you stress and pulling you in a million different directions? Let those distractions melt away. 

Choose to bring order to your world.  

Is this the year you ramp up your savings? Have your insurance coverage reviewed to see if you are properly prepared for the unknown? Have those estate plans finalized?  

Create your action plan today!

Spend time defining what you’d like to achieve over the next year … or even the next decade. The key is to create actionable steps and include manageable timeframes. Make consistent progress toward your “end goal” on a regular basis.

Believing in your goals and in your ability to achieve them is a HUGE part of your success. 

How can we help?  Sometimes it’s just about taking that first step … and then another.
