“If I [fill in the blank] my wellness would skyrocket, positively impacting several aspects of my health and life.”
Breakthrough goals are common in the business world. However, I had never heard the term until working with my coach on my goals for the new year. It is defined this way:
“Your Breakthrough Goal is the one that, if completed, elevates progress on several other goals or desires at the same time.”
Breakthrough goals are very challenging and can even seem unreachable, which creates a sense of urgency to get started and keep going. Many of us prefer to set several easier goals we can confidently achieve instead of risking failure by going big. Well . . . this is your year to GO FOR IT! As they say, if not now, when?
What if you:
Had longer and more restful sleep, waking up refreshed and motivated for the day?
Swapped the negative mental tapes that rerun in your brain for a more upbeat rhythm?
Lost those nagging extra pounds and kept them off?
Experienced more joy, gratitude and deeper relationships with others?
Took up a new hobby or developed a new skill?
Increased your physical fitness and participated in a long-dreamed-about sporting event?
Reduced your chronic pain and moved with greater efficiency and less fatigue?
Ate more fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean meats?
Spent more time engaged in activities you are passionate about?
By achieving this one goal—how might other parts of your life expand? What other goals or desires would be accelerated in the process?
This year, instead of setting many mediocre goals, just set one. The one that really matters.
My 2019 Breakthrough Goal
Spend more time in a calm, relaxed and content mental/emotional state though daily self-nurturing practices, such as momentary awareness, gratitude journaling, meditation, self-forgiveness and compassion habits, or mindful movement . . .
By attaining this goal of being more at peace within myself, I can better access my creativity and will be more grounded in my decisions. With the increased clarity I gain by quieting my overactive brain, I’ll generate more unique ideas and strategies to achieve my other goals.
