Happy New Year to you and your family
The beginning of the year is a typical time for us to take stock and look at the best bits and the worst bits from the previous year. We try to ascertain what we achieved and look at what we could do better.
My questions are these: Did you have a goal or even an intention for the year? Did you achieve what you set out to do? If so, congratulations on all your successes from 2020; as severe a year as it was, it is good to know there were successes.
My EDGE tip of the week for this week is all about goals. It is about allowing you to set goals and then work ridiculously hard to achieve them. Having these goals will put you on the path of living a purpose-driven life. As a coach (and a football fan), I love this quote.
"The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score." –Bill Copeland.
Goals give our lives meaning. Make them challenging, make them enjoyable, but set them. Make personal development goals, career goals, educational goals. We all know that there are things we would like to achieve.
You can even set impossible goals. Remember, what may seem impossible today may not be so in 6 months as you start working towards it. With the right mindset and necessary support, anything is possible.
" A goal is not always meant to be reached; it often serves simply as something to aim at." –Bruce Lee.
So here is EDGE Coaching first tip of 2021:
"Create a couple of goals to give your year a real focus; aim high."
