Do Resolutions Really Work + Top 3 Lessons I’ve Learned in 2020January 19, 2021 - filed under: Business series
I used to roll my eyes at New Year resolutions and people making lists, that are only making them anxious because they feel they have to do it all. It seemed like it’s rather a trend and another thing ’to-do’ than something to look forward to. On top of that, most of the goals jotted down ended up being just vague dreams that are too far out of reach.
Obviously, there’s no point going about your life and business aimlessly, but is there a different way of setting yourself up for success when faced with a whole new year of possibilities? Well, I’m thrilled to share that there is and I hope to inspire you with this new perspective of mine.
Intention over hustle! What if you were to plan and visualise your whole year based on 3 lessons learned from the previous one?!
1. MAKE DECISIONS BASED ON HOW I WANT TO FEEL
2. STRATEGY & INTENTION VS MULTITASKING & OVERWHELM
3. I DON’T HAVE TO BE AT MASTER LEVEL TO OFFER NEW SERVICES
Take my case for example. If I was to create resolutions my old way, I’d then write down every exciting thing that comes to mind and that I’ve desired to achieve with all my heart. They would be a juicy mix of beautiful dreams, ideas and plans. Some I would tick off, some dreams would become reality and then some I would transfer for next year. Only to feel like I haven’t gotten anywhere, even if it seemed like I have. Then, as we all entered 2021 so hopeful, I’ve felt the urge to just wait a bit with my shiny, new goals and turn inwards. Be quiet. Listen. Feel.
I can’t say if it was just one AHA moment or series of them, however I could feel this shift in me. The way I was feeling and thinking about the future has changed.
Instead of making resolutions and hoping they would come true, I was setting intentions knowing I have strategies to rely on. Intentions came from my biggest dreams and strategies came from the lessons learned. Bam!
I honestly have never felt not just inspired but also very confident that no matter what this new year brings, I’m covered because:
I’m taking actions based on intention & strategy +
I have my lessons to guide me in times of change or challenge
