LH 127: 4 Tips To Your Best Farm-Fresh Year

How To Have a Breakthrough Farm-Fresh Year

Like most people do this time of year, I’ve been working on my goals for 2018 – both in my business and in my personal life. And I’ve been coaching some of my business students on how they can lay out a breakthrough year in their businesses.

This got me thinking about how I always use certain parameters or tips each year to boost both my business and my personal goals. And I realized these tips would probably be helpful to you too – especially if you’re looking for growth in your farm-fresh lifestyle.

I’ve summed up my top four tips in this episode. But as you listen, I want you to remember this…

It doesn’t matter if you are a goal-setter type or not. And that’s because these tips are NOT really about reaching every single goal.

They’re about seeking a life that is richer and more fulfilling.

The cool thing is…they only require small shifts. But those small shifts can have a big impact on your year ahead.


You will learn:

  • My definition of a breakthrough year
  • Why it’s sometimes okay NOT to reach your goals
  • The mental shift that can make all the difference in goal setting
  • The truth about your time
  • Why mentors or experts are important
  • Where gratitude fits in
  • How to handle yourself when you mess up

    Hi Theresa,
    I liked your suggestion of devoting even as little as just 10 min a day toward a personal goal. When I heard you say that I was reminded of a woman I knew when I as a young mom. At the time, she had two teenage daughters, was involved in many volunteer efforts and held a part-time time job. Even with her hectic schedule she would create gorgeous quilts that adorned their beds as well as others used as wall art. I remember asking her how she could possibly find the time to make such beautiful creations. Her response- ” I make sure I work on my current piece 10 minutes a day, it really does add up.”

    Hi Theresa!
    I LOVE the podcast- but when you mentioned taking even just 10 minutes a day to work on a goal we had for the new year… The lightbulb went ON! I’ve taken it to heart, and have even set a reminder on my phone for a specific time in the day- and it’s been SO HELPFUL!
    Thank you for all your wisdom you share- we all have some to give… but we don’t all give it.
    Again- LOVE the podcast!
