How To Set Goals For 2019


By Content & Social Media Specialist Michaela Mitchell

Goal setting is a common theme for this time of year. As one year ends, another begins with the promise of a fresh start and clean slate. There is no better time than now to reflect on what worked this year, what didn’t, and what your biggest opportunities for growth are in your business. Before we go any further, I want you to grab a piece of paper and a pen. This is a quick activity to help you refocus and set your goals for 2019.

Let’s begin.

Fold your paper into three columns and write the following headings over each column:

What did I do well in 2018?
What am I proud of?

What could I have done better?

What will I change for 2019?
S.M.A.R.T. Goals

First, determine if you want to focus on your business, fitness, personal, or other goals in this moment. I encourage you to try this for different aspects of your life as time goes on. Take five minutes and think about these questions. You can always come back to them if you have a lightbulb moment in the shower or right before you fall asleep. That always happens to me!

Write down what you think you did really well this year. For example, did you earn a higher level? Did you grow your organization? Did you increase your check? Did you get more customers or a new MA? Did you attend Reliv events? Did you take your business in a new direction?

Then, write down what you could have done better. Could you have reached out to a few more people each week? Could you have attended Reliv Live? Could you have built up your social media presence? Could you have followed up more with prospects and customers? Did you take advantage of all of Reliv Corporate’s resources? Whatever it is, there is no judgment—only personal growth opportunities!

The third column is my favorite. It’s time to focus on the new you that you will build up over the next year. Write down a few things that come to mind immediately when you see the question. What will you change for 2019? Set S.M.A.R.T. goals for yourself.

S.M.A.R.T. goals consist of the following:

Specific: State exactly what you want to do with specific action words. For example, “Earn the Hawaii Trip.”

Measurable: Provide a way to evaluate your goal status. For example, “Use the Aloha Hawaii point tracking sheet.”

Achievable: Make your goal possible and realistic! For example, “Get two Master Affiliates every month” NOT “Earn 100 points this month.”

Relevant: Does it make sense to your business or personal life? For example, “The Aloha Hawaii Promotion will build my business.”

Time-Bound: Give yourself a deadline. For example, “I have until July 2019 to earn all my points for Hawaii, but I want to be done by June!”

S.M.A.R.T. goals are the best way to set goals for yourself. Always write them down and look at them once a week or so. You want to be continuously working toward your goals to make your year the best one yet! Do this activity as many times as you want and share it with someone else you think will benefit from it. This can be used for your fitness goals, business goals, social media goals and more. In fact, I encourage you to set goals for each of these! What will you do to make 2019 the best year yet?

Exercise, Diet and Your Waist Line



Scale Lying 8-3-11


Often the new year’s holy grail is weight loss. There’s no way around it; if you want to lose weight, exercise alone isn’t enough — you need to watch your calorie intake too.

Cutting calories does not mean starving yourself to lose weight. In fact, crash dieting to lose weight quickly makes your brain more stress-prone and increases your chances of binge eating. So those pounds will boomerang and bring friends with them, pushing your scale numbers even higher. Continue reading “Exercise, Diet and Your Waist Line”
