5 Tips To Make 2018 Your Breakthrough Year

As we glide into this holiday season and anticipate a brand-new year ahead, are you thinking about how to identify and then achieve important goals and milestones next year?  If so, check out these five tips to help you implement a breakthrough 2018!

1.     Tap into your values

Change doesn’t happen on its own.  So often, the changes we seek to make are related to things we think we “should” or “need to” change rather than things we truly want to change.  As Shakespeare famously said, “To thine own self be true”.  Get intentional about rediscovering who you really are at the core and let that fuel your growth in 2018.  With deeper, more compelling goals, you will be emboldened to harness your personal power to create true transformations.

2.     Step out of your comfort zone

Marianne Williamson boldly states, “Your playing small does not serve the world.”  For so many of us, playing small is our primary comfort zone.  We often wrap ourselves in our insecurities, self-doubt, and even guilt to keep from stepping into what might be our best selves and reaching for what is truly possible.  One step out of a comfort zone is your first step into a breakthrough year.

3.     Invest in yourself

Caring for “you” is far more than just eating right, getting enough sleep, and exercising.  Self-care is holistic; it’s also about learning to set boundaries and better routines to manage work and life balance.  Make a list now of what you will courageously say “no” to this year and what you will say “yes” to that will make 2018 your best year yet.

4.     Make accountability and support a priority

One of our most crippling mistakes is not asking for help.  Help with learning and using new tools to increase self-awareness.  Help establishing a new direction for yourself based on your insights.  Help in addressing the internal and external obstacles between you and change.  And finally, help with the accountability and support most of us need in order to not only achieve, but sustain change.

5.     Don’t forget to play

How often do you feel stuck in a rut, worried, disimpassioned … or just plain bored?  As adults, we can get so caught up in obligations and expectations that we literally forget how to have fun.  Want to smile more, laugh more, and rekindle joy and excitement in your life?  Intentionally take time out to play.  Whether it’s physical play like sports, game night with the family, or creative pursuits like painting, playing an instrument, or dancing to your favorite tunes, play is our “get out of jail” card from the mundane.  Don’t forget to play!

What would it mean to you to have significant progress in all of these areas?  How would that change your life in 2018?  Are you ready to step into a more powerful, meaningful, and joyful version of your life, perhaps even beyond what you thought was possible?
