It’s a great idea to review the past year and look for the evidence of your commitment to ‘live full out’ and take actions on your long held goals and dreams.
I recently did this review and noted what I had accomplished this year including both personal and professional goals. I went for it and really ‘stretched’ myself this past year – A few of my stretch goals included the completion and production of my Dream Card Game a product that I envision to be in every household as the way to ‘jumpstart’ and take action on personal and professional dreams. Another stretch goal was to increase my business revenue in spite of recession. Mission accomplished. Another one of my goals? To continue to improve my technique and style as a ballroom dancer. My stretch involved dancing my first latin dance public performance I can tell you that I was without question, pushed past my comfort zone…..a couple of my “buttons” that were pushed?
First time to do a “showcase’ in front of an audience
– Dancing a sexy number (I’m no Spring Chicken)
– I had to learn AND remember more advanced techniques
– I almost ‘bailed’ at the last minute… stage fright isn’t comfortable!
With some spot coaching from my partner friends and dance teacher I was able to pull it together & danced my heart out.
The result? I did it. Its a great feeling to set your goals and to achieve them.
The beauty of setting stretch goals is that they DO make you feel uncomfortable. When you choose a goal that scares you a bit you know you’ve got a ‘good goal’ Being uncomfortable is actually a really good sign. Let your dreams and goals pull you forward to manifest the results that you want. I invite you to really truly go for what you want. Please do share what you are ‘taking on’ this year. What will stretch you to your greatness?
