How are you creating goals for the new year?

With new wisdom and perspective from this past year, will your growth goals improve your resilience?

Goal-setting is easy as we optimistically gaze forward…“I think I’ll write a book this year!” is a goal I frequently hear from friends.  But then life gets in the way…

Yes, life does get in the way: each of us has a birthright to live joyful, happy and good lives.  Are you open to the idea that the deepest joy and satisfaction comes from growing through the challenges that cause most people to give up?

This book could help create goals for the new year.

It’s been more than ten years since Tim Schmidt and I organized seven f-words alphabetically: faith, family, finances, fitness, friends, fun and future. Together, we’ve seen how The Seven Fs blend and channel the natural forces in our lives into spiritual, physical and emotional resilience.

Today is a day to use The Seven Fs for creating goals to help you stay calm, focused and positive – whatever this year brings.

Consider this: How do we know the limits of our fear without testing our faith? How do we increase our endurance without breaking a sweat? How can we smooth out the ups and downs of our journey, without riding the emotional roller coaster with a friend?

Every day is New Year’s Eve: a day for reflection and goal-setting…good leaders are willing to consider these possibilities:

What will we notice about your outlook if you strengthened your faith? What will we feel in your mood when your satisfaction with family improves?

[/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”]

Will you be more magnetic if you have more fun at work?

Will you lead with less fear if you can be more grateful about your finances? What new energy will you see when your fitness improves? How will stronger friendships change how you handle people? Will you be more magnetic if you find more fun in your work? Will you create fresh energy by shaping a stronger vision of our future together?

Let’s embrace the Seven Fs as a framework to create goals for this new year.  Better yet, set goals with a friend…nothing significant is ever accomplished alone.

Good leaders make a habit of embracing everyday by preparing for a life that is joyful and happy. And we set goals around faith, family, finances, fitness, friends, fun and future to help us stay spiritually, physically and emotionally resilient.

Happy new year!  Will you please share with me one of the goals you are creating?[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

    One goal is to coordinate business opportunity with personal travel…like teaching Meditative Movements in Hawaii or on a cruise.
