Now is the perfect time to get clear on everything you would like to accomplish in the months ahead.
What big goals would you like to achieve this year? On December 31st, 2019, what do you want to be celebrating?
What do you want to be able to look back on and say, “I can’t believe I did that?”
And how will you feel, knowing that you accomplished that thing?
In order to make that vision a reality, you need to know what your goals are – and you need to be able to clearly visualize each of those goals as already achieved and what your life will look like once you have achieved them.
Here are four tips that will help you do just that – so you can stay focused and motivated throughout the year as you work on making your dreams a reality.
1. Create an Affirmation for Each Goal
Positive affirmations are simply statements that allow you to experience what your life will look and feel like once you have accomplished a goal.
For example, if one of your goals in 2019 is to lose weight, you could create a positive affirmation that says:
“I’m so happy and grateful now that I weigh 140 pounds and am so much healthier and stronger in my body.”
The key to creating effective affirmations for your goals is to visualize the benefits that you are looking forward to the most — the ones that motivated you to set the goal in the first place — and include them in your affirmation.
“I am so proud of myself for finishing my book and putting it out there for people to read it.”
“I am so excited and happy to take the kids camping in our beautiful new motorhome.”
If you identify the benefits that are most important to you and include them in your affirmation — as well as how you’ll feel when you experience those benefits — it will be a powerful motivator for you.
Because the more you repeat your affirmations to yourself, the easier it will be to keep your goals top of mind and be able to imagine yourself actually achieving them — and the more motivated you will be to experience those benefits for yourself.
2. Visualize and Repeat Your Affirmations
My second piece of advice is to take the time to visualize your affirmations when you repeat them to yourself.
Don’t just say them, imagine yourself living the experience your affirmations describe.
