So, you've made your goals for the new year. What is it that you want? What are the celebrations you've planned along the way?  Why not make this a memorable journey.  In the book, The Power of Moments by Chip and Dan Heath, milestones are accentuated as the most powerful ways to help you to keep your goals.

We just celebrated the milestones of our students at Graduation this past weekend.  I am so proud of the progress that they are making toward their goal of Black Belt Excellence!  

This week I am challenging you to step out of your comfort zone and to do something that scares you -- just a little bit. Maybe it is calling someone you haven't spoken with for a while. Maybe it's speaking or singing in front of a group. Maybe it's cutting sugar completely out of your diet for this week. Maybe it's getting to the gym and picking up the weights - that one always scares me a little and I celebrate every week that I make it through all of my workouts for the week! Maybe it's writing a blog! Or maybe it's just taking some time and going out in public. Everyone has different challenges, but I would love to see you tackle those challenges.

Once you accomplish that goal, celebrate it. One example from the book that I am reading is that if I keep jogging all the way through 3 songs on my iPod, then I give myself permission to buy three more songs.  How about this one:  If I read three informational books, then I can read a novel just for fun. Or:  If I write for 15 minutes every day this week then, I level up in my plans to write a book and I get to reach out to an author that I admire. If I practice guitar for 15 minutes every day this week, then I can record a song and put it on YouTube. These are just suggestions to motivate and give your goals some life and energy! 

Make some milestones for your goals and celebrate the journey!  Life is supposed to be fun!!!
