Knowing & Aiming For What You Want

goal setting and vision mindset mission values Nov 21, 2023

It's coming up to that time of year when I start to reflect on the year that's been and to think about my goals and plans for the year ahead.

This year I have had the incredible privilege of coaching bookkeepers in New Zealand, Australia, the USA, the UK, and Canada. I've seen bookkeepers achieve great things for themselves in business, creating ripple effects that extend not only through their own lives but also in the lives of their families, their clients and their communities. 

As I reflected on what the year has been like for me, it occurred to me that all of us harbour within us an incredible amount of potential. What we do to cultivate that potential is what determines our path in life.

Knowing What You Want

The first essential step toward realising potential and achieving your business and personal goals is knowing exactly what you want.

"What do you want?" is such a simple question but in my experience, figuring out what you want is sometimes the hardest thing to do. We either truly don't know what we want or we aren't allowing ourselves to acknowledge our wants and dreams.

Without clarity of direction, you will likely find yourself drifting aimlessly from day to day and week to week, unsure of where you're headed.

But knowing what you want is such a powerful source of motivation and determination that it's important to give yourself the space and the grace to figure it out.

Aiming for What You Want  

While knowing what you want is absolutely the place to start, it isn't enough when it comes to achieving your goals. It's equally important to aim for what you want with an unwavering sense of determination and focus.

When you're aiming for what you want, you're channelling your energy towards achieving your goals and creating a roadmap for your journey to success.

As we step into the new year, let's commit to discovering our desires and pursuing them with all the energy and dedication we can muster. By doing so, we can turn our aspirations into achievements and make a positive impact in our lives and the lives of those around us.

Here's to a year of growth, success, and the fulfilment of your deepest dreams.
