Setting Powerful Goals: 3 Powerful Takeaways from My Feature on BBC 1Xtra Talks

The new year offers a fresh opportunity to reflect, reset, and realign our aspirations. As we bid farewell to the challenges and uncertainties of the past year, we eagerly embrace the potential and possibilities that lie ahead. Recently, I had the honor of being featured on BBC Radio 1Xtra, where we delved into the topic of different and better ways to start the new year, ensuring a productive and fulfilling journey.

In this blog post, I am excited to share with you three powerful takeaways from my feature on BBC Radio 1Xtra with Mary Mandefield. These insights, garnered from inspiring conversations and deep reflection, will serve as stepping stones toward a purposeful and successful year ahead. Let's get into it!

1. Reflecting and Practicing Gratitude while starting off the new year

Acknowledging our accomplishments and experiences we've learned from helps you set meaningful intentions for the new year. Being grateful helps cultivate a positive mindset as you foresee the year and any goals or intentions you might have in mind for the year.

2. Understand the feeling you are tying to your goals

Many at times we find ourselves making a long list of things we want to achieve or do or buy through the year and it can get overwhelming especially when these things don't align with your values and you don't have a positive feeling attached to them. Taking time to understand your emotions and motivations behind your goals can give you valuable insights like helping you connect with your deeper desires and can fuel your determination to achieve those goals. What feelings do the goals you set for the new year evoke in you?  Do you really need a new car or did your mate get his last year and you feel the need to fit in as well? Do you rather crave a sense of adventure? Would a new car really give you that feeling or something else? 

3. Find strategies and habits that work for you

This helps you create a personalised approach to achieving your goals. We are all unique, so what works for someone else might not be what works for you. By finding what resonates with you, You can create a routine that feels natural and sustainable. It is all about setting yourself up for success and making positive changes that align with your lifestyle and preferences. So go ahead and explore different habits and strategies to find out what clicks for you!

With these 3 key takeaways, you are sure to have a better view of setting your new year's ambitions better and making this year more successful than last year.
