Every year many of us make "A New Year's resolution" and for many, it is the same as last year!
These resolutions often involve setting goals related to health, personal development, relationships, or other aspects of life.

How are you going with this year's resolution?

The very next thing you should do after making that resolution is grab a pen and write it down. You can do it now, it's not too late! Put pen to paper and get it in writing as fast as you can. From here you can make it a goal.

Did you write it down?

My Goal last year (2023) was to

  1. Get a golf handicap - (Goal Achieved)
  2. Drastically Alter my work life Balance (Goal Achieved)

Setting a goal then becomes a series of steps. These steps, when mixed with strong feelings and emotions will get you into a heightened state of excitement and motivation which then generates a level of energy that propels you towards this new exciting goal!

Goals can be set at any time of the year and should not be put off until New Year's Eve.

Some goals are big and some goals a simple. Goals can be money-oriented, business or relationship-oriented. goals can be about anything we deem worthwhile. Maybe you want a better relationship with a family member, sibling, or spouse. The principles are the same!

Big, bold, scary goals need to be broken down into a series of smaller easily achieved goals. Each time you achieve a small step you are moving towards the major goal. Each small victory should be celebrated and rewarded.


  1. Will help you clearly identify your desired goal or goals. Sometimes the original goal changes a little during your first session. It gets very clear with much more purpose and understanding. I will also help you generate heightened emotional feelings that really anchor you to your goals and the outcomes!

2. So, once your goal is clearly defined, we help you break it down into a manageable step-by-step plan coupled with motivational tools and focus to succeed. To succeed there are quite a few things that need to be addressed to build your plan, things such as:

    • Do I have the skills or resources required?
    • What skills or resources do I need?
    • What will I gain or lose by achieving this goal?
    • What will be the evidence that I have achieved or succeeded?
    • What is a realistic time frame to achieve this goal?
    • Build the right emotions and feelings to inspire you to thrive!

3. Finally, accountability sessions will keep you on track, motivated and focused. Each session sets out the steps or tasks that need to be actioned before the next session. These sessions are initially weekly or fortnightly (30 Minutes)


Setting and achieving goals can have numerous benefits across various aspects of life, including personal development, professional success, and overall well-being. Here are some key advantages:

  1. Clarity and Focus:
          • Direction: Goals provide a clear sense of direction and purpose. They help individuals focus their time, energy, and resources on what truly matters to them.

          • Reduced Stress: Clear goals and a well-defined path can reduce stress by providing a roadmap and minimizing uncertainty about the future.


What Is NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and How Can It Help Me?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a psychological approach that focuses on the connections between neurological processes, language, and behavioral patterns that have been learned through experience. It was developed in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder.

The name "Neuro-Linguistic Programming" reflects the key components of the model:

  1. Neuro: Refers to the neurological processes, including the five senses, through which we experience and perceive the world. NLP suggests that our mental and emotional states are closely tied to our sensory experiences.

  2. Linguistic: Relates to the language and communication systems that we use to make sense of our experiences and to communicate with others. NLP explores how language can influence our thoughts and behaviors.

  3. Programming: Refers to the idea that people can be viewed as living systems that learn and adapt through experience. NLP seeks to understand and influence the patterns of behavior or "programs" that individuals run in their minds.

Key principles and techniques associated with NLP include:

  1. Anchoring: Creating a stimulus-response connection between a specific trigger (anchor) and a particular emotional or mental state. For example, associating a specific gesture with a positive feeling.

  2. Representational Systems: People tend to use certain sensory modalities (visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory, gustatory) to represent their experiences. NLP explores how understanding and utilizing these modalities can enhance communication and influence.

  3. Meta-Model: A set of language patterns and questions designed to identify and challenge limiting beliefs, assumptions, and generalizations in order to promote more accurate and useful communication.

  4. Mirroring and Matching: Mimicking or mirroring another person's non-verbal behavior, such as body language, to establish rapport and connection.

  5. Submodalities: Refers to the finer distinctions within each sensory modality. NLP explores how changing the submodalities of mental images or thoughts can influence emotions and behaviors.

  6. Reframing: Changing the way an individual perceives a situation by altering the context or the frame through which it is viewed.
