How to Create a New Year's Statement that will help you reach your goalsJan 04, 2024
Many years ago when I was living in New Zealand one of my friends, Terri, and I decided that we would create a New Years Statement.
The idea was to escape from the short term pressure of a New Year's Resolution. They're always crap. And I truly don't know many people who manage to sustain them.
They're too specific and they just put all the emphasis on one thing. If you don't immediately see results then most people just give up.
Both of us needed a bit of encouragement and support. So we put our heads together. I remember that we went with 'Be Positive' and 'Be Brave'. But I can't remember who chose what.
I think I was heading up the L'Oreal account at the time and it was a pressure pot. Everyone on the team was super stressed, so perhaps mine was 'Be Positive'.
And I think Terri was thinking of moving abroad for a period of time, so perhaps hers was 'Be Brave'. Hmmmm.
Anyway it was brilliant. Because you could fit things underneath it. And if you slipped up then you could shake it off and go again.
It made me accountable to myself. I could ask myself, is this helping me 'Be Positive?' And if something that I was undertaking was too much and wasn't giving me the joy I needed in my life then I'd say no. Look for something else.
Each year, since then, I take on a New Year's Statement. Then (every other year except for this year which was just crazy crae cray!) I check my progress.
One year, when I was single, it was 'Be Romantic'. I'm a bit of tomboy (still) and that was good for me. It was good for me to be a bit more feminine and open to taking a more romantic approach to life.
Another year it was 'Be Open' and so rather than saying no to things that were out of my comfort zone I embraced considering them.
This year I'm mixing in a bit of rhyming and a touch of Irish (Gaeilge) It's going to be Go Mór 24.
It's a bit of a play for me.
Mór means BIG in Irlsh.
But I also want this year to be about reaching out for more.
In 2023 I built my business, increasing my services, launching a group program, a content membership and adding some courses to my service offering. In all I created 7 (love that number) new offerings as I tweaked some existing offers and added others.
As I step into 2024 I want to take what I have and grow it MÓR.
But also I want MORE. Beautiful clients, members, and FUN. Time with family and friends.
What do you want to create in 2024?
What's your vibe for 24? Think about what you want to achieve and see if you can consider a simple statement that works with that.
Maybe your ready to go Mór with me?
Look back at 2023, celebrate your successes and consider what's next?
Let's do it! It's easier and more fun together.
