No matter what time of year it is, it is never too late to work on personal goal setting. I have been channeling my inner bossbabe since 2019 rolled in. Personal goal setting is important because you want to have a clear path on what you want to focus on. I want this year to be full of abundance and growth in spite of the challenges I have faced already and will in the future. There are some things that I have been doing to help me with personal goal setting and tuning into that abundance mindset.
Taking control of my finances: one thing that I started doing for the past few months is paying my bills ahead of time & following a savings plan specifically to help me pay off my debt faster. There is no crippling feeling like being in debt. I’m close to conquering one of my current savings goal and have been consistent with paying my bills early. This way I’m not aimlessly spending money on unnecessary things and at the end of the month I truly feel at peace and in control. Doing this has helped me to be more grateful for my income but also make me more determined to find ways to increase my income. This requires discipline so keep taking it one step at a time.
Waking up grateful: something that I have been trying to do more consistently is waking up being grateful. If you wake up and constantly focus on being tired, having a lot of work, or just simply focusing on something negative – then your day will be a reflection of that. When I wake up my goal is to think of 3 things that I am grateful for that day. I try to come up with new things each time. Doing this will put in a mindset of gratitude. Motivational speaker, Jay Shetty, says that when you are in a state of gratitude you cannot be in any other state of mind. Appreciate your daily opportunities and you will feel abundance in your life.
Stay organized: A cluttered environment will create a chaotic mind. When you’re in a cluttered house, car, or office space it facilitates procrastination. In order to prevent that, you have to consistently spend a little time each day organizing your space. I know for me when I have a clean organized space around me, I feel determined.
Focus on your life and not everyone else’s: I know social media is great for allowing us to keep in touch with all of our friends. But the downside to the way it is set up is that we are constantly looking at highlights from someone’s life. Those highlights distort our perception of other people’s lives. So we can get sucked into a black hole of comparison. That’s why deleting the app off of your phone or limiting your time on them is going to help redirect your focus on your own happiness. When you focus on your life, you’re able to celebrate other people’s happiness and accomplishments.
Be present in the now: We have become so accustomed to having our phones as an escape that when we’re out and about we would choose to aimlessly scroll through our phones then look up, have a conversation, and be in the moment. Meditation has helped me to practice mindfulness but even taking a walk outside without your phone can help you.
Say thank you: part of having an abundance mindset is putting out a higher frequency of gratitude. That can come simply from saying thank you for the little things. Even smiling goes a long way, you never know how you have made someone’s day by a simple act of kindness. I know you may be thinking “How will this help me channel my inner bossbabe?” Well it starts with your mindset and how that affects your productivity and happiness.
I hope these simple yet affecting tips can help you with your abundance and growth this year and for the years to come. Take Care!
