The advent of the New Year is traditionally a time to evaluate where you’ve been, where you are, and where you want to be. Goal setting is a powerful process for envisioning what you’d like to accomplish and motivating yourself to make that vision a reality.
- Specific—Goals should answer specific questions of who, what, where, when, and why.
- Measurable—Goals should be quantifiable so you can track your progress.
- Attainable—You should be able to evaluate whether your goals are realistic.
- Relevant—Goals should be relevant to your life at this time.
- Time Related—Goals should have a deadline to keep you on track and focused.
For example, instead of “I want to get in better shape,” try a specific, SMART goal, such as “I want to exercise after work, five days a week, for the next three months.”
Whatever your goals are, you can use Young Living essential oils to help you define your goals, remove emotional blockages, and solidify your resolve to achieve them.
