Here are some of the topics we touch on in this episode.  

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry said “Goal without a plan is just a wish”. 

We’ve  brought together 3 people who have achieved goals Jada Monica drew, Victoria Brownlee and Sarah Keel.   

“2012 Harris Poll surveyed 3,036 adults who identified “weight loss” as a top resolution for the new year.  In fact health and money accounted for two-thirds of all resolutions.”  “45% of Americans make resolutions but only 8% of those people are successful in achieving their resolutions, but the really interesting thing is that those who explicitly make new years resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t explicitly make resolutions.”

So where is the disconnect?  To Quote my positive psychology handbook it’s “Most People fail to make positive change because the goal they set is shoddy.  … and they make a people problem out of a process problem.”

Core Values are a key to deciding what’s important to us in setting goals

I want to take images that inspire people

Continue the things that make me happy and delete the things that don’t

Align your goals with value and vision

Are these goals taking me closer to my life’s dream

Vision Boarding techniques

What is the core desired feeling

Recording your “I am Statements”

State your goals in the positive

Avoiding something takes more mental and physical energy than approaching it

Aligning expectations

In a meta-analysis done my Roese and Summerville in 2005 it found “Our biggest regrets are not for the things we have done but the things we haven’t done”. 

Releasing the outcome, but enjoying the process.


Mistakes are proof that you’re trying

As long as we’re evolving.  Take with it what you can learn.

Constantly evolving

Have an accountability Partner

Write down your specific goals

Give yourself a by when date

Write down why you want the goal and the reason behind the reason

What are the action steps your taking to achieve the goal

How will you measure progress and celebrate wins

How will I use primers?

What are your pitfalls?  What will keep you from achieving your goals?

Who will help keep you accountable?

Write a contract to yourself, sign it, date it and put it where you can keep it and see it.
