By James Mills, Associate Partner & Mentorship Coach, Lighthouse International

Imagine your most incredible year…. would it be full of adventure and excitement? More energy and health? Greater levels of happiness? A career change? Earning a million? New relationships or strengthening existing ones? Or just having the feeling each morning that you’re living your life more on your terms?

Often there are many of us that have high hopes for a new year; setting out bold intentions for how the year will be different. Yet, how many of us actually make any lasting, real changes happen?

Research from the University of Scranton shows that only 9% of people are successful in keeping their new year's resolutions. What makes them different?

Why Is This Time of Year So Crucial For The Year Ahead?

So, as we start a new lap around the sun 🙂 it’s a perfect time to reflect on the year gone by to start preparing for the year ahead. There's plenty going on at this time and without taking the time to do this, we run the risk of repeating the same mistakes we made last year. Entrepreneur, Sir Richard Branson stresses that what we do at this time is critical for having a happy, healthy and successful year ahead!

"There is a saying that goes around at this time of year. 'Don't worry what you eat between Christmas and New Year.'

Actually, it is what you eat between New Year and Christmas that really matters. I'll be making it one of my resolutions to maintain a healthy diet in 2017, which will put me in good shape to achieve my other goals too."

The reality is that legends use this time well; yes to connect with friends and family, but also to crystallise how they see the year ahead. Successful people are constantly reflecting on where they want to be and what they are working towards.

How Do You Know What To Focus On? 

Over the years Facebook Co-Founder Mark Zuckerberg has earned a reputation for completing personal challenges ranging from learning Mandarin, reading a book every two weeks, meeting a new person every day and running 365 miles in a year. He goes into each year knowing what he wants to achieve. There is, however, more to these challenges than making use of leisure time as explained by an article in Inc.com:

"With his New Years resolutions, Zuckerberg turns the high-powered innovation beam on himself. Every challenge he undertakes carries the end goal of solving for some aspect of himself that he'd like to develop further, some gap in his ultimate self-vision." 

As the year comes to a natural conclusion, take a moment to stop and ask yourself what sort of year you want. If you want to take the first step in understanding how you can make 2018 the most incredible year possible, below are some questions that will help...
