My Goals for the New Year
Each year I write out my goals and then look them over to see which ones I actually accomplished. Believe it or not, there are some that I look back on and wonder what I was thinking and others that I truly achieved. One that stands out the most in my mind is the writing of my first book. Yes, I achieved that goal and the best part was that I was offered the opportunity to write another! A true dream come true.
Some of the other goals that became a reality were continuing my radio show, which this month will actually make a year it's been running. Another was to meet in person some of the wonderful people that I speak to on a daily basis online. I had the opportunity to attend some conferences such as Extreme Business Makeover, Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and BlogHer. All were wonderful events and the best part was meeting some fabulous people. I will not try to name them all because I am quite certain I would miss many.
If you notice my title for this post is goals not resolutions. As I see it, resolutions are meant to be broken and goals are achievable. My goals for this year are to keep my focus of helping others, in particular women. Why women? Well, that's simple, because I am one, silly! But most importantly I have noticed the many women that struggle. Many are not certain what they want to do with their lives, and their families and are completely lost. It breaks my heart to see so many struggle when they should be enjoying the lives they have been given. I've helped many start businesses online and that has been an incredible adventure for both them and myself.
My ultimate goal however, is to become the female version of Tony Robbins. As he, I overcame many adversities in my life and it is because of those adversities that I am the person I am today. It was not an easy road but one I was determined to work on until I was able to truly wake up each morning with a smile. There are times that I feel myself slipping, but that's the difference I can actually feel it and control it. We all have choices in our lives. Many may disagree with that last statement but I truly believe it to be true. If I can make a difference in one person's life by sharing my story and truly listening and giving them hope, then my life long dream will have been accomplished. Will I ever be like my ultimate mentor, Tony Robbins? Only the man up above knows the answer, however, I will not give up on my quest. The more people I can touch in a positive light, the happier we all will be.
