Welcome to 2017. New year, new energy, new opportunities. Woo hoo!
To say thanks for being my subscriber (I know I don’t always get it right and you’re still here so thanks!) I enclose a free visual coaching template to help you get 2017 off to the best possible start.
To use the visual coaching template simply print a copy, grab your favourite makers and fill it in according to the instructions below.
1. How I Want To Feel This Year.
What words immediately come to mind? Jot these down. Have fun with it. How do you really really want to feel in 2017? The plans, the actions, the tasks are often rooted in a quest to feel a particular way. We want those shoes because we feel amazing in them; we want lots of money to feel successful, connected, contributing etc..
2. Thoughts, Words, Deeds That Feed My Soul
How often do we make plans without tending to these important aspects of our lives? To achieve our goals I believe we need support, guidance and fun along the way! Make sure you feed your soul in 2017 with that which sets you alight.
3. Aims, Goals, Desires
Ok, let’s get into the juicy details here. Choose one area of your life, or really go for it and jot down everything you want to achieve in 2017. Don’t worry about the how for now, just get it all down and make sure you write in the present tense. Don’t overthink it, ink it!
4. New Habits I Want to Cultivate
If your goals include streamlining your finances (for example) a new habit may be doing your accounts on a monthly basis. Want to feel fit and fantastic every day? A new habit may be to get up 20 minutes earlier than usual and go for a walk. What new habits do you need to cultivate to support your goals?
This is a big question! When I filled out the template I instinctively left this as the last section to fill out. It can be a word, a sentence, even a song title. Get something in there that’s a nod to your why, your reason for being here. What feeds your drive, your heart, your spirit?
Good luck and I’d love to hear how you get on with the template so do drop me a line to let me know.
Here’s to your best year yet!
