Happy New Year and welcome to 2010. The New Year is a great time to start afresh. We can leave behind the things that didn’t work out in the past that is 2009, and start the New Year with a fresh set of ambitions and dreams. What are your dreams and aspirations for 2010?
Do you have someone to keep you accountable for reaching your goals in 2010? Having someone who we rely on to keep us honest during the year, after the euphoria of New Year and summer holidays has subsided is crucial. That someone (and it doesn’t have to be just one!) acts as a mirror for you, providing an honest reflection of your choices during the year. When other “priorities” come up and you’re about to let your dreams fall by the wayside, they’ll remind you what you committed to in January and what you’re about to “let go”. You still have to make the choices of whether you’ll stay the course with you goals or will you let them go, but it becomes so much harder to abandon your goals when you know there’s someone watching your progress…
So I’m going to ask you to be my mirror for 2010. One of my aspirations for this year is to update my blog and send out my email newsletter on a regular basis. I intend to update and distribute them both twice a month. I’d like you to be my mirror and accountability! Now I have publicly stated my goal I’m going to have to work hard to make sure I stick to it because I know you’re all watching! If you think I’m not sticking to my goal I’d love you to contact me and remind of what I’ve said here!
Whether your goal is to lose some weight, learn a musical instrument, or to improve an area of your life find someone who can hold you accountable to the promises you’ve made to yourself at the beginning of the year.
Happy New Year and Happy Speaking!
