December 2011 Newsletter

Green Christmas MindStore Australia

Last month you will remember we shared some inspiring resources, to give us all the inspiration to keep going forward with our goals and dreams. The feedback from recipients was fantastic. A big thank you to everyone who emailed us with comments about the youtube videos.

This month as it’s the last Newsletter for the year we would remind ourselves about successful goal setting for 2012 and beyond.

As always feel free to forward this to anyone you feel would benefit from reading it.

We wish you all a Magical Christmas and an Magnificent New Year!

New Years Resolutions

In Scotland, like elsewhere in the world  where the New Year is celebrated on 31st December, we make Resolutions for the New Year.  For many these are made in the heat of the moment and some are given up on before the party aftermath has been cleared away.

As we approach the end of 2011 many people and organisations are looking anxiously to the future with the financial challenges of the eurozone and its potential global impact.

The best way to get out of that negative mindset is to set yourself inspiring goals which motivate you to look forward to 2012 with positive anticipation rather than the opposite.

To make your resolutions or goals for 2012, and beyond, that you will stick with use these key principles:

Write your Goals down– sounds simple but only 4% OF PEOPLE DO THIS, who happen to be the successful ones. Be one of them in 2012.

THINK BIG!– No one leaps out of bed enthusiastically in the morning with a passion for a goal that is “realistic and achievable”

Be less concerned about the HOW of your goals in the beginning.

Be more concerned about the WHY, why you want to achieve your goals. Why will this push all your buttons. Getting a powerful emotional connection to your goal is vital.

Constantly go “back to your future” – Use the power of Gestalt to work for you by repeatedly thinking of and seeing in your “minds eye” the outcome you Desire. An idea held firmly in your subconsious mind will receive the attention of your subconsious mind, which will then manifest in your life. Repetition is the Key.

Have the right Attitude – to succeed with your goals you need  positive control of your Desire, Belief and Expectations.

Armed with the tips you will have given yourself the best chance to set for yourself goals which will last, because you will have a passion to achieve them.

Feel free to contact me if I can help you further with goal setting for 2012.
