New Year Goals for 2017

Happy New Year everyone - this is my first post of the new year so what better way to kick start this year than to have some goals and I would love to share mine with you in this post today!

Generally every year I will make some goals and often sometime I will forget about them or not put plans in place to keep up with them through out the year and then life takes over and they get pushed to the bottom of the list. 

As I am getting older now for some reason I feel a bigger sense to really stat making myself accountable for setting myself goals and actually sticking to them and along with that I really want to feel that I have achieved something and that I can do things that I didn't think I was able to do. 
I have seen so many people achieving their goals and doing amazing things when they are rightfully putting the hard work into it but then I find myself plodding along and not putting my all into changing my life - remember the only person who can change your life is yourself!!

So I am going to share with you my goals for this year and the things I am putting in place to try and make sure that I achieve them. 

My Goals:

I broke my goals down to the very basics first, 

What did I want from life right now:

- Being financially independant
- Buying a house and renting the flat I currently live in
- New Laptop

I made these very simple and basic and mostly achievable so that at least by the end of the year I will be mostly on my way to getting there. I like to put one thing on my list that it more challenging so I keep my aspirations up and remember the bigger picture (which is the house part)

Secondly I wrote down the things that I love doing:

- Fashion + Sparkles
- Shooting (Fashion shooting)
- Fitness and Health
- Helping others and motivation

I thought long and hard about the things that make me truly happy in life and things that I am actually quite good at, for example I have been a gymnast my whole life so I know about fitness and what it takes to work hard and get results. 

Lastly I wrote down the enablers:

- My blog 
- Personal training course
- Fitness Brand
- Youtube

These enables are the things which are going to help me achieve my goals and turn them into reality. 
My Fashion, Beauty and fitness blog is my main enablers for the start of the year, so creating regular content and growing my reach and my audience and really helping people hopefully by sharing my story. 
Personal Training Course I want to do my PT course so that I can actually be certified to teach your guys about fitness and health as I think this is very important. I know a lot though my experiences and reading things but I want to be able to start teaching people one to one and helping others reaching their goals so this will help me get there. 
Fitness Brand this is a dream that will be taking me further than my 2017 goals and hopefully on the way to greater things. I want to create a fitness brand to help others with their fitness in the way of books and clients but also creating a fitness clothing line so you can feel good by what your wearing to give you that extra boost of confidence. Us ladies know that we kick ass on that we wear or special underwear even when people can't see it! 
YouTube -  This is something that is way out of my comfort zone I have never filmed myself before and do get a bit shy when talking is large groups so this will be pushing quite a lot but hopefully will be quite fun and end up loving it. 

The Process:

As you can see from the pictures above I wrote out my goals on a scrap piece of paper at first and the n wrote it up on the A3 piece of paper. This gave me a chance to get everything out that I was thinking which really helps. 

I have put the A3 piece of paper under the glass of my dressing table in my bedroom so that I see if everyday as is a constant reminder of what I want to achieve this year. I haven't done this before so I am really excited to see if this helps. I will keep you updated with if this helps or not. 

The next thing I am trying is I have written mini goals I want to achieve in January and written them down so that I have something to aim for in the next month. I have attached this to the 1st January page so that I can then plan the next 4 weeks so that I can make these happen. 
It important to focus not the smaller goals that make up the big goal so you don't get lost, so in 6 months time I will have achieved lots of mini goals and I can see where I am on the bigger picture plan. 

I hope you have enjoyed this and has helped you in some way, Leave comments below if you would like updates on whats going on below.
