2022 is now here. And most people publish articles on setting goals, planning your year, etc. And those are all good things. I have a slightly different take on it.
All the goal setting and planning in the world won’t do much good if your head isn’t in the right place. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve set business goals or personal goals, beginning of year or other times, and got no farther than writing them down. Why is that?
The answer is mindset. Are the goals something you actually want to do? Are they something you truly believe you CAN do? Have you given yourself permission to accomplish those goals? Do you have those voices from the past telling you it’s a waste of time, useless, or that you are too stupid, etc. to accomplish those goals?
We all carry baggage from the past. Much of my particular baggage is in the form of my parent’s voices in my head. It’s an ongoing battle to hush up those voices and stay focused.
So yes, I have business goals for 2022. But a bigger goal is to continue my personal path to believing I am worthy of success and happiness. It’s getting easier and easier, but there are always bumps in the road.
Here’s to a great 2022!
