My first thought is a sense of energy and readiness to go. In fact straining to get going. But revved up for what, to go where, who with, what is needed to get there and what will it look like and feel when the destination is reached? Being revved up is the starting point, using the power of its energy to move forward and continue to gain momentum is the trick to getting the most out of being revved up. It is in this context, at the beginning of a brand New Year with all the exciting opportunities and possibilities, that the power of being revved up has an extra impact.
At the beginning of a journey we have an abundance of motivation, can’t wait to get started but in order to reach our destination, I think it is vital to look at feeding that motivation, keeping the fire burning right to the end so that we reach our goal with energy to spare, ready to kick start ourselves onwards to the next goal.
So how do we look after that power, in fact how do you know how much energy will be required to keep you moving forward right to the end? It begins with clarity around what the destination is and what you are going to gain from reaching it. It is also is a good idea to have some type of plan in place to manoeuvre through or around the inevitable speed bumps. With a clear vision of the value you will gain from going forward, you can use it, you will have the desire to overcome any obstacle. Ready to put the power back on moving forward once you have a clear road ahead again, while exploiting the knowledge gained to make overcoming the next obstacle a little easier. Maybe even a little quicker, to continue building even more momentum to make it to your ultimate destination.
Along the way, you need to look after the machine getting you there… you. How do you ensure you stayed revved up for the new and exciting twelve months ahead? The answer is perhaps careful planning that puts you and your wellbeing at the heart of the strategy to power forward. This ensures you are resilient in the face of any unforeseen obstacles, with a reservoir of positive energy to see you through to the next stop.
At the beginning of every New Year, I look at my main priority goal for the year and while I may not know every detail of how I am going to get there, I’ll figure it out. I trust starting with the initial power of being revved up to move forward and nurturing it along the way as I take each step forward, that I will find the answers. The thrill of being at the start line is almost as good as taking the final step over the finish line, only to realise not only have you made it but you are revved up to tackle the next one. 2016, a year to be phenomenal with the right planning and doing.
