Let’s face it; we all need help along the way.

Congratulations on establishing your goals! That is a huge step toward personal growth and success in the coming year and beyond.
Make 2012 your best year yet!
I designed The Ultimate Goal Setting Guide after years of facilitating strategic planning and goal setting workshops for organizations and individuals. I wanted to make my proven process accessible to everyone, because I believe more than ever that we all need a clear vision and intention for how we live our lives.
If you have been following my last few posts, I have been setting you up for this goal setting article.
With guiding principles to help steer you in the right direction and a bold and audacious attitude, you are ready to establish the goals that will help you generate the life you desire and deserve.
So, what's your plan for 2012? Henry Ford said it best: Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right! What you decide to focus on has a huge impact on the goals that you set for yourself and your ability to achieve those goals. To truly create and align goals with your wildest dreams and aspirations, you have to embrace a bold and audacious attitude.
I wanted to share a quote from a book called The Rythm of Life by Matthew Kelly.
"Everything is a Choice. This is life’s greatest truth and its hardest lesson. It is a great truth because it reminds us of our power. Not power over others, but the often untapped power to be ourselves and to live the life we have imagined.”
He goes on to say that it’s a hard lesson because it causes us to realize that we have chosen the life we are living right now.
Another common and costly leader mistake that can result in a loss of credibility and trust.
MISTAKE: Imposing goals on team members.
I can’t stress enough the importance of making the goal-setting process collaborative. Imposing individual goals on someone is the fastest way to lose commitment. And, leaders should be leery about imposing their expectations through online collaboration tools. Technology can be successfully used to support the goal-setting process, but should never take the place of crucial conversations.
Just a final reminder that if you are interested in attending Ascend 2010, today is the last day to register!

I honestly can't tell you how excited I am about this year's goal setting seminar Ascend 2010. I updated the website (www.youryeartoascend.com) with a full layout of our guest speakers and panelists and an agenda for the day. AND, right now we are offering a Buy 1, Get 1 at 1/2 Price option.
