If you're setting goals for your VO business in 2022, you need to remember to start from a place of gratitude. It's amazing how powerful a positive mindset can be for the upcoming year.
Gratitude and Goals
Today, I want to talk to you about gratitude, and goals.
So the new year's coming up and I think all of us think about, oh gosh, it's the new year. What am I going to do in my business? How am I going to advance? How am I going to grow? And you're either on the side of setting and then accomplishing them or like a lot of us, sometimes we make goals and then probably the third week of January, we, kind of forget about those goals.
So I have a process that has worked for me in the past that I'd like to share with you. It starts with, first of all, being grateful for the good things that happened in the year. I like to sit down and actually write this down. If I haven't already written it down, write down what I'm grateful for this year in my business, in my personal life.
How ever you want to do this. If you want to just concentrate on growing your business, it's a great time to sit down and write down what went right in your year and be grateful for it. Because in order to move forward and set new goals, I think you have to start off with a positive attitude. Because that really just excels and progresses and pushes you forward for the new year to have a positive manifestation of what you want to happen and how you want to move forward successfully.
Take a journal, a scrapbook, whatever you want. I just got a really cool new journal called my Panda planner, which I can write this down in, write down what it is that you are grateful for. And then I want you to start setting goals for yourself for the new year. But I want you to start simply and start with maybe a major goal, but break that major goal down into smaller much simpler steps.
A lot of times, if we have really grandiose goals, it's very difficult to realize them, unless we break it down into smaller, easily accessible, and doable steps. It's all good and fine to say, I want to lose 50 pounds next year, or I want to make a hundred thousand dollars or more. I want to make 500 thousand, whatever you want to do for your business, but setting such a grand goal without the smaller steps to get there is going to be very hard to achieve.
Consider that big goal part of your vision board. Then break down your goals into smaller steps and smaller accessible steps, and make sure that you can break it up. I like to write weekly goals, monthly goals, and daily goals because that's what automatically makes me break it up into segments.
And then I can look at that on a weekly basis or a monthly basis. And then I can see what went well for the week. What went well for the month and write those things down. And it makes it a whole lot easier to step ahead to a more successful new year.
So to wrap this up, make sure that you pay gratitude first. It sets your mind in that positive spin for success for the next year. Then write down those goals and then make those goals small, simple, and achievable. Thanks so much for watching.
Thanks so much, guys. See you next week.
