I trained as a life coach 8 years ago and know some things about setting goals and achieving them! I am delighted to pass the JAR idea forward and look forward to hearing how all your jars go in 2014. I have been in quite a reflective (non-writing) mood today and just before I wrap Christmas presents I thought I would tap out another post.
Whether you are dreaming big or small, whether you are an expert goal-setter or a novice – this post is for you!

Happy reading x
Go sit in a big comfy chair or your favourite place in your home or surrounding area and think about what your life will look like in 12 months time if there were no obstacles and if everything went your way. What changes would happen? Where would you be? What do you need to do to achieve this picture dream?
Or if you are more practically minded and manifestation seems like fantasy to you then go with what would you like to achieve this year? Where would you like to be this time next year?
However you approach this HUGE question / imagining you need to try to get your idea down into a sentence or two.
A pad/ journal to track your goal and achievements – it is good to keep it all in one place.
(And a pile of magazines if you really want to go for it!)
Visual manifestation works even better because you see an end result – you see yourself as the achiever.
I made mine in May (was a promise to myself in January – but I was busy reconsidering my professional life and buying houses and the like!)
I saved it as my mobile screen saver so that I would see it every time I activated my phone!
- SET A CLEAR INTENTION
Write it down.
1-2 sentences, that is all.
Keep it simple & easy to understand.
2. WHAT ARE YOR RESOURCES?
What do you have available to you to help you achieve your goal?
Local groups/ other areas of your community
Things you already know.
And anything else.
Think about what your resources are and write them down.
3. WHAT ARE YOUR MISSING RESOURCES?
What are the things that would help you achieve your goals, dramatically cutting time scales or increasing success?
These may be things you are unable to get – considering them will help you focus on
a) what you want &
b) ways you will be able to get that.
The areas you may wish to focus on are the same as resources in step 2.
Start thinking about how you can obtain these resources.
NEXT we have to work on strategy the step by step plan that will help you reach your goals.
