How many of you have set new goals for this year? Is it one goal or several? Who believes that they will definitely achieve their goals and who just wants to try? I was recently at a conference where a speaker said: “It never fails because of a lack of good ideas, but ultimately always because of a lack of (collective) interest in implementing things.” Or to put it more briefly, good words mean little if no actions follow them.

My personal experience has shown that if I don't believe 100% in achieving my goals, then I don't even need to try because I am likely to fail and then feel the need to come up with arguments as to why it didn't work out. A pure waste of energy, which is, however, widely practiced! (In the words of Lewis Carroll's clever Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland: “If you don't know where you want to go, every road will lead you there.”)

The easiest way for you to go about tackling your goals is to start from a good place, where you feel proud about yourself. Increase your chances of reaching your goal(s) by remembering your USP: all the individual talents and competencies that set you apart and distinguish you from others.

Mental energy is our most valuable personal commodity and of vital importance when it comes to achieving our goals. It ensures that there is joy, desire, passion, and confidence in our lives instead of emptiness, boredom, disinterest, or negativity. Our energy tank must be well-filled and constantly refilled so that we can overcome strenuous and dramatic phases in our lives relatively unscathed.

Seen in this way, mental energy is also a vital building block of our resilience, our self-confidence, and our motivation.

I am sharing 4 tips on how you can make sure that your mental energy is always at a good level:

  1. Clear your emotional minefield and allow your brain and soul to breathe, just like your body. The mines are emotional stumbling blocks, burdening leftovers of negative experiences that serve no purpose. You must let them go. They might prevent you from achieving what you set out to do and becoming the better version of yourself unless you clear the way.

  2. Do what you enjoy and what is, at the same time, good for you! Keep your body and mind in movement. Cultivate a genuine interest in people and things by asking questions, sharing knowledge, and giving back. Every small thing matters. If you keep this up, you will naturally draw energy from it and feel happier.

  3. Push yourself a little by writing down a few more goals, rather than too few! They should not be too easy to reach. However, no need to climb down any rabbit holes, either. Just enough to keep you in the game and your competitive edge awake. Monitor your goal stages daily and write down the successes. (Of course, if you are an overachiever, do not restrain yourself for the sake of it. Just be mindful of the fact that life is not a sprint, but a marathon.)

  4. Last, but not least, surround yourself with people who have a surplus of positive and contagious energy. Seek out the places where you are likely to meet such people. The more you let yourself be embraced, the less likely you will be subject to negative thoughts.

Now you are ready and I wish you a great 2024!
