5 Goals in Life that you NEED for the New Year – Video Transcript

It’s a brand new year so I’m going to guess that you have some sort of new years resolution, maybe to lose weight, stop smoking, make more money, something like that. Am I right?

I’m going to tell you what the difference is, and also I’m going to explain to you the 5 different goals in life that you should have for this new year.

Ok to be honest, I’m really not  fan of resolutions, I much prefer goals, you see the thing about resolutions is it means usually that you want to create a change and the only way to change something is to create a new habit. and to create a new habit, you need to create goals that are going to help you create that habit. Also a lot of people have a new years resolution and its so big and thats really hard to stick with so even though I’m a fan of the new years thing and I usually do the new years thing around my birthday cause to me its a new year but its in January so it still kinda counts.

But I like to have some big goals in mind but if you call it a resolution, it’s too much pressure, so instead you should have a big goal and then you should break it down into smaller goals.

So every year I like to have a big goal around five different things and these are what I believe, the five goals in life that everybody needs to have.

So, the first one is business goals. There’s also health goals, family goals, relationship goals and social goals. So I like to have some biggish goals for the whole year and then I create quarterly, monthly, weekly, etc etc goals to make sure that they are accomplished. So for instance, one of my business goals is to publish my book by the end of the year and actually more like in the middle of the year so I don’t just leave it at that like my goal or my resolution is to publish my book, I then break it down into smaller goals like “write this chapter”, “meet with a publisher” , editing, front cover design, yada yada yada, all of these goals are going to help fulfill my bigger goal.

On the health side of things, my big goal is to get plates certified and that’s probably  not going to happen until around the Fall but its still my goal for the year so I’m not just gonna wait until the Fall happens and certification comes around again, I’m going to make smaller goals like “attend pilates 3 times a week, 4 times a week for an entire month or three months straight or practice whatever”.. so smaller goals to make it easier for when Fall comes around and I can accomplish that goal. And of course I have family goals, relationship goals, social goals.. and just like business and health, I’m going to break those down into smaller, actionable bites that I can accomplish much easier than the entire goal.

So now I want to hear from you, what are your five goals in life that you want to accomplish this next year?
