03 Jan 3 Ways To Fire Up Your Goals in 2017
As many of you know, I don’t really fancy myself a traditional January 1st resolution or goals maker. In my d11 Fire Up! bubble, every single day is the start of a “new year” with sassy swerves and pivots a normal way of doing business. Over the last few years, I have written quite a bit on the subject of GOALS… Here are some of them:

In 2015, I shared three simple keys to writing reachable, achievable goals and intentions on your VISION LIST.
This year I want to focus in on three more tips/truths to make your journey to achieving your goals smooth and successful.
3 TIPS TO HELP YOU ACHIEVE THE GOALS IMPORTANT TO YOU!
1. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH CHAMPIONS.
Who you surround yourself with directly affects your success. Let’s get real here, alright?
Some people in your world might resent you if you become more successful, start living healthier, are working on getting thinner… you get the picture. Most of the time this is way more about how they feel about themselves, not you. Regardless, beware – these people and their negative thoughts could sabotage your success.
Your mission is to DEFINE YOUR 11. Who are the people you want to support in the year ahead? Write them down. Put them on a Facebook list, Twitter list, follow their RSS feed and share their blog posts… Stay tuned for more ideas on YOUR 11 to come out soon.
When you write your goals down, you have the BEST of intentions. You set out to MAKE IT HAPPEN and as perfectly as possible.
We all know that does not always work out.
Remember to give yourself grace if you have lost track of a goal. It takes time, commitment and determination – and sometimes we fall short. Get up the next morning with passion and conviction… and move FORWARD. Accept the downs and the ups… the lumps and the bumps; it’s not the end of the world if you stray from your path.
Stay strong. Start again.
Most of our goals are seeking, reaching, stretching, and building towards SOMETHING ELSE. More money, deeper relationships, thinner waistlines, bigger homes, faster cars – you get the idea.
The biggest gift we can give ourselves is to be content and GRATEFUL for what we do have while we are working towards our goals, dreams and visions. This will take focus, intention, and tenacity.

Below is my “Signature Life Intentions” vision sheet – updated for 2017.
It isn’t your typical “resolutions” list, but I adore the format.
I print it out, post it in the Fire Up Studio and it guides my daily list creation. My favorite part is choosing my ONE WORD for the year!
