Focusing on what you want

December 5, 2016 Sandra Dawes

Have you ever had a point in your life where it seems to practically be raining opportunities? Whether it was getting a job offer, finding something you’ve wanted for a long time on sale or reconnecting with a long lost friend, there seems to be times in our lives where the stars are truly aligned! This has been my experience in the weeks leading up to the final month of 2017, and it made me wonder; why now?

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t have gratitude for the opportunities that are coming my way. I’m truly excited and know that I am blessed to have things falling into place to make my goals for 2017 become a reality. I wanted to figure out why because I want to make sure that I continue to attract these amazing opportunities and I want to share with others who may be struggling to do the same with their own goals!

November was the start of goal planning for me. I ran the Jump Start Your Year Retreat, my first weekend long event, the second weekend of the month and while the attendees were working on their goals, I started thinking about my own. The following weekend, I met up with friends to brainstorm about our goals for 2017 and hold each other accountable to take action within the next 30 days to build momentum. I also received purchased my 2017 wall calendar and flip chart paper and started to plan out steps I needed to take on some of the things I want to accomplish in the upcoming year.

All this to say that I have done the following in the last month:

  1. Gained total clarity on what I want to achieve in 2017
  2. Identified what worked and what didn’t in 2016
  3. Stayed focus on what I want and remain open to how it will unfold
  4. Started taking action to put the balls in motion so I can hit the ground running when January arrives
  5. Spent time and talked to a supportive, encouraging group of people who also want to take their lives to the next level

There was a time when I would have thought I had just hit a string of good luck. I never would have thought that I had anything to do with the amazing opportunities that have come my way in the last few weeks, but now I know better. We do create our reality. We do have the power to change the course that our lives are headed on if we want to and are willing to do what’s necessary to make it happen. I also know that I can’t take any of this for granted. If I want to ensure that things continue to flow with ease, I need to remain focused, grateful, open and willing to take action, even if it requires me to step outside my comfort zone!
