I hope it was! 2017 is just around the corner. So good or bad you have a chance to make a fresh start.

Maybe 2016 presented big challenges that threw you off course? Maybe it was a job or relationship loss, an injury or illness, or a situation that otherwise completely tested your resolve. At times, maybe you even doubted whether you could ever take control of your own life and create the future you want since so much feels like it’s out of our hands. But …

The start of a new year is exciting. The Christmas season is over and soon you’ll be able to begin the year fresh. A new start, maybe a new chapter for your life.

Have you already thought about what you want to achieve for 2017?

It is so important for you to start 2017 well.

Think long and hard about what you want.

Pick one big goal and commit to it till the end of 2017.

So decide what you want in 2017 and get clear on why you want it.

Setting yourself goals is one of the most important thing you can do for your own personal development, right now the single most important is to make sure you’ve written down your goals.

Planning for 2017 is the simplest way to make next year a great year.

When the hands of your clock strike midnight on New Year’s Eve be ready to make the most of the year ahead, knowing every day will bring you new opportunities and possibilities, so don’t waste a moment, and make sure 2017 will be your best year ever!

How important is this to you.

Everybody wants what feels good. It can be frustrating and disheartening to seeing a looming gap between the life you’ve always dreamed of and the life you’re actually living. But it doesn’t have to be this way…

“With definite goals you release your own power, and things start happening.”  Zig Ziglar

Maybe you’re fed up of  struggling, tired of the difficulties coming your way, tired of wanting more but being unable to achieve it.

I will be starting work on the Pearl and Dean Story soon, that demonstrates no matter the difficulties one faces in life, it is possible to achieve amazing things. It’s a rags to riches story, where my grandmother’s two brothers, Ernie and Dickie Pearl take centre stage. From the parents of Ukrainian refugees they went on to live a dream.

You can bring about huge improvements in your life. There is something magical that happens when you have written down your goals.  I have seen people transform their levels of success almost instantly simply as a result of getting clearly defined and written goals

Having written down your goals is powerful and begins to move you forward.

Let me share with you a simple truth.

I understand why you might think goal setting is completely overrated. After all, having written down your goals on a piece of paper does absolutely nothing right?

Well, believe it or not, experts believe that by having your goals written down, it makes them 1000% more likely to come true.

Every night before you go to bed you read your goal. That way you can dream about it all night long. And every morning you read it again. That way, you can spend all day working on finding ways to make it come true.

The simple act of writing down a goal and making a written plan for its accomplishment moves you to the top 3 percent. Brian Tracy

Clear, written goals have a wonderful effect on your thinking. They motivate you into action. They stimulate your creativity, release your energy, and help you to overcome procrastination as much as any other factor.

Having written down your goals with a set date for accomplishment gives you something to plan and work for.

Writing goals down brings you total clarity, it requires that you get a well-defined vivid mental image first that you can carry around with you 24 hours a day.

Get your goals written down TODAY!

Happy New Year. Make it a great one.
