Goals Article #2

Prior to the New Year celebration people talk about making resolutions.  Many of us have never made resolutions but have set realistic goals for the coming year.  Resolutions are things that are easily broken and ignored.  Goals we set are those things that excite us to achieve to a successful conclusion.  Nix the resolutions and set the goals.

In setting our goals we must be realistic, ones that are attainable, not so high that it will be impossible to achieve.  I have known people who have done this and tell me, “See, goal setting doesn’t work.”  Those we set as attainable goals need to stretch us and allow us to grow into a new understanding and utilization of our talents and abilities.  Goal setting necessitates that we believe in our self to achieve and keep a positive mindset, especially when we run into an obstacle or take a step or two back, as we journey the road to a successful conclusion.  Our goals are ones that come from an inner drive to succeed, to create something new and meaningful for our self and/or the world around us.  Goals may be derived from our dreams and desires or an offhand remark that strikes a chord within us and we think, “Hmm, not a bad idea.”

Take time to think about what it is you want to set as goals for 2015; short, medium and long-range. Don’t overthink the goals, write down those that invigorate you and motivate you to achieve on either a personal or professional level or both.

More articles on goals during the month.

I know you will be successful in your goal achievement in 2015.

Baubles And Beads

   Bells, whistles, feather boas, colorful baubles and beads, sequins, sparkles and all out gaudy make for a very colorful and unique day.  How colorful is your day?

We tend to get into a rut with everyday living and working.  Wouldn’t you like to jazz it up a bit?  I realize hanging a fuchsia feather boa on your chair or around your neck and Mardi Gras beads off the corners of the cubicle or picture are not the norm or even allowed in many workplaces, hence we are relegated to jazzing up our mind with the color and energy of positive and creative thoughts.

As we jazz it up, up there, it provides us with a wonderful feeling, permeates all we do and who we are–time to; end the drabbiness (my word), add color, energy, and sparkle to our being.  As we sparkle things up, up there, we glow, we effervesce and are open to new perspectives on life, answers to questions and problems appear with creative ways and resolutions.

Life is about being, being us, without creating too much of a stir, ahem, don’t want to scare people.  Coming from an artistic family (music, art, design) I like the classics and the different that has a style and co-ordination to the scheme/theme of the work.  Sometimes even the extremely outrageous finds a place in my “like” arena of life.  The point is, we are each unique individualized expressions of Life Itself.  Each of us is creative in our own ways.   In being successful it is important to be true to ourselves and not sacrifice ourselves just to succeed and be miserable.  Miserable is not part of successful living.

If we want true success and well-being in our life it is important for us to live our life and too, add color and dimension to our being.  Time to go from 1D to 3 D.

The gaudy bling dresses up the outside for “looks” but the real glitter and sparkle of life takes place within each of us.  Add a touch of color and sparkle to your day today.  Dare to be colorful you–without creating too much of a stir and should people look at you askance–smile and nod and let them wonder why it is you are so excitingly you.
