Even though it’s still 2023, there’s no reason why we can’t get started on our 2024 goals. Although some people are still focused on holiday gift shopping and picking out their holiday looks, it’s time to start thinking about next year. Sure, many will wait until the final week of December to start planning their 2024 goals, but if you are truly serious about achieving your goals, you’ll want to get started ASAP.
If you’re up to snuff with all your manifestations and self-help exercises, you’ll know that this beginning of the new year is the perfect time to start gathering your goals for the next year. However, to get better success, you need to start jotting them down NOW to give the universe (or the higher power you prefer) enough time to get the ball rolling for the new year. So, in today’s post, I’ll be sharing ways you can get started with your 2024 goals now and start the new year off right.
Write Down Your 2024 Goals
I do not doubt that you’ve likely heard that writing down your goals by hand is much more effective than using a device. This is statistically true. According to Inc.com, you are 42 percent more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down on paper than just using your computer or phone. Not only is writing down your goals more effective, but it sets you up for actually working toward your goal.
Later, I’ll be talking about your vision boards for the new year, but instead of creating a vision board on a whim, write down your goals and think about them thoroughly before creating your board. This will get you closer to thinking about your 2024 goals and what you need to achieve them.
One of the tools I use to make sure I feel comfortable and ready to jot down my goals is cute stationery. Let’s be honest: anytime you use a pretty notebook, you’re most likely to use it and reach for it. Some of my favorites are from Day Designer (not sponsored), because they have really cute designs and plenty of space that I can use for jotting down ideas. They also have planners that have some space where you can write down your 2024 goals too.
Get Very Specific
It’s not enough to say, I want more money. How much is more money? A dollar? Five dollars? $10,000? There’s a wide difference between all of these options and you’ll only get to your desired income by being very specific. Now this doesn’t mean you should expect $10,000 overnight. But you should set down and think of a goal you wish to achieve and get down to the specific. Is there a number you can add to it? Maybe a date? Maybe you have a specific business idea or income you want to get more money from.
All of these details make the difference between achieving your 2024 goals and not. Another example comes with losing weight. Instead of jotting down, “I want to lose weight in 2024”, try writing down, “I want to lose ten pounds by March 31st by going to the gym five times a week.” Putting a figure and details to it will help you know exactly where you need to start.
There’s No Limit To Your Goals
One of the prime mistakes I see with people who make their goals is limiting themselves with what they want to achieve. There’s often a sensation that you should be “reasonable” and “realistic” with your goals and you should confine yourself within a limit. There is no limit. The only limit that exists are the ones that you put on yourself. Start off 2024 by not giving yourself a limit you want to achieve. Using the previous examples, instead of the original, “I want to make $100,000 by the end of the year,” you should change it to “I want to make $100,000 or more by the end of the year.”
Knowing you can achieve anything helps to eliminate that scarcity mindset and give your subconscious the confidence in knowing that you believe you can achieve any of your 2024 goals if you put your mind to it.
Create Your Vision Board Early
Alot of people will start their vision boards around the end of the year or the start of January. I’m here to tell you that following this process will completely waste your time. Your goals and milestones will hardly be achieved overnight, meaning you need to give yourself as much time as possible to achieve them. Get your vision board done early to let the universe started and you can start seeing the fruits of your labor as soon as 2024 rolls around.
Why waste the entire month of January when you can start manifesting your desires as soon as the clock turns midnight. Following the previous steps, be as specific as possible when creating your vision board. If there’s a place you’ve always wanted to visit, pick out your desired hotel and room now and put that on there. Be as specific as possible to give yourself a bigger chance at achieving your 2024 goals.
