Setting a Vision for 2018

Setting a Vision for 2018

Every year in January, after all the Happy New Years are said and done, I start hearing a buzz of new year’s resolutions.  While resolutions are a great way to start the new year on a positive note, they are often too vague and lack the requirement of a commitment.  It’s like a way of saying: “I will try to achieve this, but if I don’t, then I’ll just try it again next year.”  It simply won’t work.

A few years back I started setting goals for myself instead of taking on resolutions.  I went about setting SMART goals.  The kind that are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-Sensitive.  I have to say that setting goals allowed me to stick to what I wanted to achieve.  In my opinion, goal setting is a much more co-active way of planning out what you wish to achieve in the new year.  It put’s you in control and is more of a hands-on approach that resolutions can ever be.

Some time last year, it came to my attention that SMART goals are not all that smart…  In truth, SMART goals limit us in what we can achieve.  Essentially, having specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-sensitive goals puts a cap on what we achieve.  Goals set using this approach keep us in our comfort zone and limit us in attaining our highest potential.  I will be dedicating a whole article to this in the near-future, so stay tuned.

When I learned how limiting SMART goals can really be, I changed my approach.  I now set a highest vision for my upcoming year.  A vision of what I want my life to be like in 365 days from January 1st.  What it will look like, what it will feel like, what it will be like…  You get the idea.

In 2017, I set a vision of myself as a better person.  A person who lives with passion and on purpose.  A person with clarity and balance in her life at home and in her business.  I am very pleased with the way 2017 turned out.  Having a vision shifted my focus from the how I was going to do it to what it was I wanted.  Everything fell into place.  The Universe delivered and what I wanted is now what I have, only better than I could have ever envisioned it.

So for 2018, I encourage you to set a vision.  A general vision for the year as well as visions for specific aspects of your life, such as a vision for your work or career, one for relationships, one for your health, one for your spiritual self and so on.

In my upcoming articles, I will guide you in setting these more specific visions for 2018.

Until then, I wish you love and many blessings.

May Baydoun did all the “right” things and followed all the “right” steps. But she knew deep down that there was more to life than getting an education, getting married, having children... There had to be more than just the cards you are dealt. Watching her children play, she overheard her daughter saying “... just like mommy”. The sudden realization that her children, her daughters especially, would grow up to be just like mommy frightened her deeply. She was the role model of what a woman can be in this life and at that time, May wasn’t satisfied with who she was nor what she stood for. She was nothing more than her mother had shown her to be... A woman in her thirties, married with young children putting her dreams and ambitions on a permanent hold to raise a family. In that moment, she fully understood that she could not expect her children to become more or better than she was willing to be herself. It was a harsh reality check; and in that moment, she made the decision she would become the best version of herself she could be because she HAD to be the best possible role model for her children. That powerful decision, her awakening, meant that she could no longer accept the average life she had led up until that point. She set out on a wild journey of deep self-discovery. Not only of who she was, but who she wanted to be and how to become that woman who had that life. Along the way, she made the discovery of the law of attraction and suddenly her whole life made sense. The good luck... The bad luck... The past decade of her life. It all made sense. She had created it all. And if she could create it, then she could dis-create it and re-create something new. She began testing the theory and in no time was proven right. Fully trusting the Universe, she allowed herself to be led on the journey. She has had the beautiful blessing of learning from so many great thought leaders and piecing together the many pieces of life’s intriguing puzzle. Over a decade later, she has discovered her life purpose, and is living it fully. Now that the student has become a master, she teaches others the principles that have led to her radical life transformation and how they too can leverage (or hack) the Universe to get anything they want... without breaking any of the laws!
