Lead with Love
1. What is your mission statement?
My mission statement is to be happy at all cost. To live with integrity and kindness and to be heart centered.
What do you stand for, what are your values both internal and external? How do you show up? Are you living your dreams or still living the dreams and desires of those around you?
2. How do you show up in the different areas of your life?
Are you setting deliberate and intentional goals in these areas of your lives? What are some of the barriers preventing you from reaching your goals? How can you begin to overcome these barriers?
3. Are you using your words kindly?
Voice, intonation, mannerisms, How are you showing up for self? How are you showing up for others? Many of us grew up in households were people cursed, verbally abused, fought and berated others-are you carrying any of those residual traits around with you?
4. Are you consciously committed to change?
5. What are you affirming?
To affirm is to declare something to be true.
You must first think and create personal, career, financial, social/educational, health and wellness desires in order to create a goal. It is a good practice to not only think your goals but to also write them out. There is a saying “it’s hard to measure what you cannot see”.
This is very true, if you’re not writing your goals out on paper it becomes difficult to determine if you’re making progress. Writing goals on paper allows you to be your own accountability partner.
Affirming and writing your goals on paper provides a visual validation for you. Now your goals are not only in your head but also on paper.
Think it, say it, and now the next step is to write it.
It is recommended that once you write your goals out that you do not bury them under a pile of papers or file them away. Keep them close where you can see them and say them out loud or to yourself daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly its’ up to you.
Think it, say it, and write it.
Each of these steps is important towards affirming goals and establishing the foundation for a positive and productive Balanced Life and New Year.
