It’s already December. Soon will be Christmas. Some of us will spend way to much, eat too much and indulge too much. On 1st January some of us will make promises and take New Year’s resolutions to stop or to start something that we always wanted to do.
I usually take some time to identify my goals for the next year and write them down. I follow ‘7 habits of highly effective people’ by Steven Covey. I go with Habit 2: Begin with the end in mind.
One of the best ways to incorporate Habit 2 into your life if to develop a Personal Mission Statement. It focuses on what you want to be and do. It is your plan for success. It reaffirms who you are, puts your goals in focus, and moves your ideas into the real world. Your mission statement makes you the leader of your own life. You create your own destiny and secure the future you envision.
I enjoy reading my Personal Mission Statements from previous years. It shows me how much I achieved and how my priorities have changed or shifted. Change is part of our lives. It’s up to us to decide how and when to bring this change to become who we are.
If you need support in your resolutions or want to get rid of the old habits contact me to explore what coaching can do for you.
