Fall is the Perfect Time to Set New Goals – Riana Milne, LMHC, CAP, Cert Life & Relationship Coach
(9/2013) Although summer may not have yet ended on the calendar, for us in southern NJ, it ends with the Labor Day weekend. Those of us who love the refreshing, beautiful ocean, tranquil sandy beaches, and the lazy days relaxing in the sun; we sadly say goodbye to summer friends that were there to help us celebrate the season of sunshine.
As the colder nights emerge, we are aware that fall is on its way. Now is the time to reflect with joy on what we learned, accomplished, or treasured during our summer. At the same time, it is important to set new personal goals for the fall which will lead us to reach our dreams. Set three daily, weekly and monthly goals – in each category of business/school and for your personal life. Then set lofty six month goals that you will strive to reach. I also set goals of what I want accomplished by the next Memorial Day holiday, the mark of the new summer season. I work harder over the winter when the weather may not be so nice and I am more prone to stay indoors, so I can enjoy my summer more.
Last winter, I set lofty goals to write and publish both my book, LIVE Beyond Your Dreams, and my App, My Relationship Coach, by December. Then, I wanted my forthcoming book, LOVE Beyond Your Dreams, finished in its first draft by Memorial weekend – all accomplished! Summer was a time for celebration that my book appeared in Barnes and Noble stores by July, and some well deserved fun, beach time and rest!
This fall, my latest book will enter into its publishing stages and a new website will be launched for my Life and Relationship Coaching service, so I am able to help people worldwide. Both will be completed by the end of December. Setting and announcing goals like this throughout one’s life helps you to live consciously, be aware of each day’s purpose, encourages dreaming big, keeping focused, and celebrating life when you reach them! Then, after celebration, you set new goals to reach. This is the meaning of – LIVE Beyond Your Dreams. Since the loss of my best friend at age 16 by a drunk driver, I had decided to live my life this way, as if each day could be my last. It is how I raised my children and coach my clients – to set goals and dream big. This enabled my daughter Alexi to put in 10 water wells in Tanzania Africa since the age of 20, as well as be accomplished in the entertainment world. My daughter, Stephana, became a Supervisor at JetBlue airlines by the age of 25, and also had a successful Photography business by 26. Goal setting towards your dreams enables you to have a life you love and are proud of; leading you to feel exuberance and confidence as you live a life of purpose and personal success. When was the last time you set your goals, or re-examined your dreams? Fall is the perfect time to do so.
