We’re all in a leadership role in some way, which usually starts with leading ourselves first.
Throughout life, we’ll have many situations where we’ll be tested, whether that’s mentally, emotionally, physically or relationally. How we deal with those situations determines the type of leader we become, which also affects whether we accomplish what we want to or not.

Valuable Things To Know If You Want To Achieve Your Most Important Goals This Year
The start of a New Year is the time when people usually set their resolutions or goals for the year.
It can be a very exciting time as we let our imagination run wild and identify what we’d like to do, acquire or experience during the year. The challenge for most people is that the initial excitement is short-lived.
We allow life and our day-to-day obligations to take priority over what matters most to us. There are some significant costs when we stop focusing on what’s important to us and they include:
Not feeling or operating at our best consistently.
Not making progress towards the things we want.
Having low levels of motivation.
Not being willing to challenge ourselves to do new things.
Having challenges in different areas of our lives.
The sad reality is most people keep doing the same things over and over, or making the same mistakes, which prevents them from having significant breakthroughs in their lives.

There are a number of things I do at the start of each year, which includes:
Create quarterly, monthly and weekly plans to achieve my goals.
Get on with doing what’s required to achieve my goals.
It’s common for me not to achieve all my goals each year, but without goals, I wouldn’t feel a sense of progress or accomplishment. There are things I have learned that have made a huge difference in how many of my goals I actually achieve.
