Spending lots of time clarifying what your New Year’s resolutions might be? Losing weight? Exercising more? Saving more? Getting organized?
My advice? Stop it!
Statistically speaking, 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by the 2nd week of February. In fact, according to one commonly cited statistic, only 8% of people stick to their New Year’s resolutions. Those are pretty depressing odds!
What if there is a better way to improve your life? As a professional life coach, I believe there is. In fact, when I coach my clients I tell them, “Drop your resolutions and pick up your dream instead!”
So how about you? What’s that one big dream that’s been on your heart for a long time? Now, imagine how you’d feel if at the end of 2018 you had wholeheartedly pursued your one BIG dream? Imagine actually writing that book. Taking that dream trip to Europe. Running that marathon. Creating that business. Stepping out onto that larger speaking platform. Changing that career.
What if 2018 could be the year that changes everything? I believe it can! A life truly pursuing your dreams can be over-the-top invigorating. Those who consistently and passionately pursue and honor their dreams
are marked by courage
inspire others with hope and inspiration
live with purpose
attract other dream seekers
experience happiness more often.
Here at Life Launch Me, we believe big dreams deserve to live! As our New Year’s gift to you, we’ve included the following My 2018 Big Dream Inventory. Use these questions as a way to consider that one big dream of your heart. The questions are meant to guide you toward better clarity and focus. Hopefully, as you take time to reflect on each one, you’ll be infused with passion and purpose.
Why not make 2018 a year when you drop New Year’s resolutions and pick up your dream instead? Here’s to your 2018. May it be your best year ever!
