New Year, New Tools

You've probably all heard/seen the quote, "Insanity is repeating the same actions and expecting different results." or some version of it, and it is so applicable to our new year's goals. (I say 'our' because I am so guilty of this sometimes!)

But 2015? I've got some new tools & I'm changing up the usual to hopefully achieve some new goals :)

If you find yourself in the same boat as me - wanting to make goals & actually achieve them - but don't know where to start, I'm sharing all the tools I'm using this year to make things happen!

Whether you use these, or follow Lara's goal setting series on her blog (2015 is underway, but 2014 & 2013 are still up!), her system & process of goal setting will help you find & finesse goals that MATTER. No frills or fussiness here, just real, deep introspection that helps you develop good, true, solid, goals (and a plan to make them happen ;)

Glow eBook
I have been following Rachel & her blog for years (I think I found her old blog, Little Bits of Lovely, just after I started my blog!) and seeing all her incredibly inspiring work has been so cool! When she launched her eBook GLOW, I knew I had to pick it up. She packs so much punch with tons of resources, information & worksheets beside so many good, kind, supportive thoughts - definitely a must read if you want to kick in the pants to get your goals done :)

I don't care what it is, but find something that speaks to you & dive in! Whether it's Make it Happen, Ordering Your Private World, Love Does, or anything that can help you figure out what matters & how to make it happen, do it!

How else are you going to write out your dreams & goals and keep track of them? I started journalling last year, and I admit I'm not a natural at it, but I love the idea of having a written record to look back on. Especially with goal setting!!

Surround yourself with words that change. Whether you write them out, buy a print (or two!), a daily daybrightener, download an app, tape them to your mirror or your desk, surround yourself with good things. Write out your goals and keep them visible! Nothing will ever happen if you forget about them. I'm planning on writing all of mine out & keeping them behind my desk - nothing like accountability to make things happen :)

You can do this!! Prepare yourself, dream big, & then work ever harder :)

Happy 2015!
