2024 is going to be your best year ever because you’re going to work on goal setting.
Why, you may ask?
Because I’m going to share with you something I have been doing every year in my business since I started. I really believe that because of this, my income has virtually always exceeded that of the previous year. The best part is it’s a really simple exercise that should only take you an hour or two. Make some time this weekend to sit down with a cup of tea and your notebook, and take action.
Create a 3-year vision for your life and your business
We’re going to project what you would like to have happen in the next year, which is a goal setting exercise. This isn’t just a New Year’s Resolution… we’re going to take it even further and really stretch your business goals. The best way to stretch so much bigger than you normally would is to create a 3-year vision for your life. I like to make a 3-year vision, because using just a one-year plan makes us really self-conscious with worry that we won’t have enough time to make things happen.
Imagine that it’s January 2, 2026 – three years from now. You’re sitting down and you’re looking over the past three years. Write in your journal, “I am so happy and grateful now that over the past three years I have accomplished…”. After goal setting, your have the immense gratification of observing from where you started, and where you are now because you worked so hard on this goal setting exercise.
I want you to really map out what you would like to see your life be like exactly three years from today (your goal setting). Three years allows you to be a little less inhibited and more realistic (but still with a bit of a stretch). Instead of thinking, “Oh, can I really get this done,” when you have a period of three years, you actually let your mind open up to what could be possible if you have the time, the focus and the concentration to get it done. In other words, the sky is your limit.
This is key: write your goal setting in the present tense as if it were 3 years from now.
If it doesn’t scare you just a little bit or get your mind racing, then it’s probably not enough of a stretch. (By the way, I just looked back to last year’s 3-year vision and I was SHOCKED to see how many of the goals in my 3-year vision I’d already achieved in just a little over a year. I’m telling you, this really works!)
Take out your journal or a piece of paper. Write what will happen over the next three years in your business. Imagine the place you will be in and think:
What does it feel like?
How do you feel inside?
What are your surroundings?
Where do you live?
Who do you spend your time with?
What do you do in your business?
What do you no longer do in your business?
How much money are you making?
Your 3-year vision must be one that will literally PULL you into your future, will scare you just a little bit and make your heart beat a little faster than normal whenever you read this. And it’s YOUR responsibility to shape the future of your business how you want it to be.
Share your vision with others (and me)!
We would love to know what you’re intending! You can share what you’ve written with your spouse, partner, team and family – or if you’re feeling bold, a small positive summary on your social media channels and with us in the Boldheart Facebook Group using #my3yearvision #boldheart. We want to celebrate and encourage you!!
This is how you’re going to reach different levels of your business, different levels of your income and deep personal satisfaction in your life.
