Forward Focus

Updated: Aug 22, 2023

I love looking back at my goals from the year and reflecting on the year. The things that I have accomplished show me that I can…… I can achieve, I can succeed and I can create the life of my dreams. I have learned A LOT about goal setting and everything it takes to make your dreams come true.

But sometimes looking back can cause frustration and even depression. Maybe the goals that you set didn’t turn out exactly like you had hoped. Maybe you struggled with parts of your goals or maybe you forgot about them entirely. It happens. What has been extremely helpful for me is remembering what a friend told me several years ago - there is a reason why your windshield is bigger than your rear view mirror. You need to be focused on where you’re going - not where you’ve been. Remembering your successes can give you the fuel and determination to move forward knowing that if you achieved something once, you can do it again. But dwelling on what didn’t go well or what you didn’t do or get done is only going to hold you back.

This year, I challenge you to look forward to 2022 and determine what you want to achieve in all the environments of your life - career, personal, financial, health, recreation, and community. Create some goals that are going to fire you up - and start visualizing and feeling what it would be like to accomplish them. Believe that you really can create your ideal life and start taking action steps to achieve them. You will encounter some roadblocks. Expect them. It is not a sign to stop but to find a way around.

As you move into 2022, know that you really can achieve any goal you set and you can attain unimaginable levels of success in any environment of your life. Decide what you want, believe it will happen, implement actionable behaviors and positive mindsets, and be prepared for success. Go!
