Begin again in 2021

Here are a few simple areas in your life where you should begin to set goals again.

Begin again in 2021

Last year was full of unexpected challenges. Our way of life has shifted as a result in more ways than one. The truth is, as we navigate these changes, many of us have lost our confidence along the way, unable to make plans for the future, our goals quietly sitting in quarantine unsure of when they can emerge.
There is much we have had to adjust to over the past year. However, humans are adaptable and primed to face and overcome challenges. As we enter into a new year, take this opportunity to regroup, letting go of the ‘what ifs’. Instead, start afresh, setting new intentions for the year ahead.  
Crisis often brings clarity.  Consider how the turn of events last year may have given you a greater awareness of your priorities. Let these become the focus for you now in 2021.
Setting goals, being optimistic about the way forward and having things to look forward to, is not only a positive approach to life, but actually essential in times of uncertainly as it helps to anchor us into the here and now, while giving us hope as we look to the future. So, where to begin? Figure out what’s important to you to help decide your priorities. Then simply choose a few carefully selected goals for the year to work toward.

Here are a few simple areas in your life where you should begin to set goals again

Financial goals:

No matter what 2020 threw at you in regards to earnings and assets, let 2021 be the year you get back on track working toward healthy finances. Everyone has their own unique financial situation and many Australians were affected by the upheaval of 2020. Perhaps a change of circumstance means reassessing priorities.

Personal goals:

Working toward goals invites personal growth, focus and motivation for you now, with the achieved goal a reward in itself and a gift for the future you. Keep a list of your goals somewhere you can easily see them, and make sure you celebrate any goals you do achieve as the year unfolds.
