As we kick off a brand new quarter, what goals will you be moving toward?
What are you excited to celebrate on September 30?
In my Bold Goal trainings, I always emphasize the importance of wording, focusing on, and moving toward what you want to create – not what you wish to eliminate.
It’s a subtle but important difference, especially when you’re reviewing or rewriting your goals every day!
This week, write (or rewrite) your goals in the positive.
Take a look at your Q3 goals – or even your goals for this week.
Are they focused on where you want to be?
Are they worded positively?
Do they prompt a clear vision in your mind of what you’re creating?
Play around with the wording. (For more, visit this article
