Motivation Mojo: A Year of Dreams & Goals
As we continue to think about our year and and our true life, it is a good time to also reflect on the goals and dreams that drove us this year. Have your goals and dreams served you? Have they helped you live your true life? How have they? Which goals and dreams do you need to change in order for your life to reflect a truer you.
How have your goals and dreams enhanced your motivation mojo?
Write down your 2013 goals and dreams on a sheet of paper and then separated them so that each goal is separate from another. Reflect on how the words make you feel as you read them. Do some make you feel happy because they are realities? Do others make you feel regret? Do you find that there are no emotions tied to certain goals or dreams anymore?
The goals that make you happy -can they be expanded for next year? What are your new expectations? How will your new goals and dreams allow you to live your life even better?
The goals and dreams that leave you with a feeling of regret -what was their purpose? Are they still dreams you hold in your heart? How do they move you closer to the life you want to live? Where is the emotion you hold for these goal and dreams based? Are these goals and dreams drowning in your fears?
Take a moment to reflect and visualized these dreams and goals as if you are living with with them as realities now. Are you filled with joy, or is it others around you that are happy? Now do the opposite. With a clear picture in your mind and heart of knowing these dreams as realities, imagine what it would be like if they were not true. Are you sad, happy, indifferent? The answers should give you clarity as to whether these dreams and goals are part of your authentic self.
If you feel indifference toward some of your 2013 goals, then consider giving up these goals and dreams for 2014. The lack of emotion for a goal or dream is just as important as a strong emotion. It could be that you have had a change of heart. Allow yourself to grow.
Reflect on which new goals and dreams have taken the place of older ones.
Take out another sheet of paper and add the old goals that you still desired to be realities. Add any new goals to this list. How do these goals make you feel about 2014? As you start your new list of goals, focus on the ones that fill you with the most positive energy. Your 2014 is already starting to take shape.
Get ready to feel the full power of your motivation mojo.
