Everything seems possible in spring. It’s the season of hope, of fresh life and new beginnings. It has started to feel like Spring this month and with that brings an energy that provides the perfect opportunity to set our intentions, to start the process and achieve the changes we want in our lives.
For the month of March, we are taking advantage of Spring and our goal is to REFRESH & RE-ENERGIZE. We are ready to break old patterns and to start to feel motivated and inspired. We want to set new goals.
What are some things you used to do but don’t do anymore? You might find yourself wishing you made time for it.
What are some things you keep saying you will do, but just haven’t got around to it?
Let’s set some realistic goals together and take care of our well-being by watering our “mental and physical gardens.”
Here are five steps to take advantage of the season and achieve your goals.
1. Look at where you are now
With no judgment, define your reality. Take a snapshot of your life right now. Figure out what is working, what’s not and assess areas like career, personal care, relationships, finances, diet, etc. Break it all down, and be honest with yourself.
2. Look at where you want to be tomorrow
Clearly, honestly and without judgement – define your goals. Include what the end result will look and feel like.
3. Identify the blocks and challenges
If you’re trying to make real changes, you must identify the limiting beliefs that are holding you back. If your goal is to have six-pack abs or a more money saved by June, but you’ve never stepped foot in a gym or have a savings account, take a step back to reevaluate.
4. Take action
Spring is the time to bloom. The new springtime seeds have been planted, but YOU must commit to nurturing, cultivating and watering your goals.
5. Enjoy what you’ve created
Now that you’ve become a good gardener, figuratively, it’s time to enjoy the harvest. Give yourself credit for setting goals. Even if it may take some time to achieve them, you should celebrate the small successes!
