What Are Your Goals For 2013

Are you like me, set goals for the new year, then say “OK, I’m going to start today” and you do, but then you get busy, and you’re no longer motivated and then, you give up. I did this a few years back when I was writing a book. I got totally excited and started writing, but then it got harder and I put it away. I also said I wanted to spend more time with family and friends, but I didn’t really do anything to make that happen and so I would feel sad because I was lonely.  Some people know me as full of ideas, but no follow through.  Well, not this year!  I’ve made a commitment to myself that this year and I’m hoping you’ll follow suit. I am going to write out everything I want to do, see be and feel in 2013. And to make sure I stick to it, I bought this gorgeous workbook I found while searching on Pinterest I think. I came across Leonie Dawson’s Incredible Year Workbook and Planner.

It was $20 I think and you download it, so no waiting. If you’re anything like me and not patient, this was perfect. If you click on this link 2013 Incredible Year Workbook and Planner, it will bring you directly to the page. She has tons of great stuff on her site, but I am committing to myself that I am going to do one thing and do it well.

The book has colourful images, but the part I like the most is that she has the inspiring words and you can feel her genuine concern for you in the workbook. She talks about appreciating the past year 2012. She helps you to let go of 2012 and open your heart and mind to 2013 cause it’s gonna be a BIG one.

I felt like she was talking to me when she wrote this: You are getting braver, deeper, wiser, more beautiful by the moment, by the day, by the year. YES I AM!

So to all my ladies and gentlemen friends, what ways are you going to use to ensure you stick to your New Years Goal? Let us know in the comments below. Maybe there are some people out there who want a different method, but for me this year I am going to try the 2013 Create Your Incredible Year Workbook, Planner

Have a great day and keep thinking of all the wonderful things you want to accomplish this year.

Sincerely,

Tina

I Ran and then….

Here’s a goal I WILL DO! I’m running a 5K by 2013. To prepare for it, I am going to do a 2K with my work colleagues on June 12, 2012. It’s for United Way and I do believe in them because they support a club that helped me become the person I am today. The Boys and Girls Club helps kids in low income areas have a place to grow and feel safe!
