How To Make 2023 Your Year As An Entrepreneur

 Set, write, and review your goals. Take action. Stay persistent. Study successful entrepreneurs. Visualize achieving your goals. Celebrate each small victory.

It’s almost that time again — the time where we change to a new year. Once again, we’ll see the world getting super serious about new goals with thoughts of achieving them. While a small percentage of people will achieve their new audacious goals, most will not. I hate to be the bringer of bad news — but its true. 

However, I do not want that to be you. I want you to achieve all your goals and to continue raising the bar.

Setting Goals

The first step to making 2023 your year is to set goals. What do you want to achieve in the next 12 months? Do you want to grow your business by X%? Do you want to launch a new product or service? Do you want to create a new course or program? Whatever you want to achieve, write it down and then create a plan of action.

“Psychology professor Dr. Gail Matthews, at the Dominican University in California, led a study on goal-setting with nearly 270 participants. What was the result? You’re 42 % more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down” (Inc, 2022).

Writing your goals out makes you very clear what you’re looking to accomplish, instead of vague thoughts. It forces you to know exactly what you want, and makes you think about why you want it. The process of writing your goals also motivates you to actually take action and complete the tasks and steps needed to reach those goals.

There are two popular formats for writing your goals, which are: SMART Goals and OKR.

“SMART goals stand for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound” (Purdue, 2022).

OKR stands for objective and key-results, and “is a goal-setting framework that helps organizations define goals — or objectives — and then track the outcome. The framework is designed to help organizations establish far-reaching goals in days instead of months” (White, Sarah -CIO, 2018).

For now, I’d suggest sticking with smart goals for personal use and OKR for business and organizational use.

Taking Action

Once you have your goals set, it’s time to take action! This is where many people fail; they have the best of intentions, but they never actually take the steps necessary to achieve their goals. If you want to be successful in 2023, you need to take consistent action towards your goals. This means showing up every day and doing the work, even when you don’t feel like it. It means being willing to put in the extra effort when needed. It means being disciplined and focused. When you take consistent action towards your goals, good things will start happening. You’ll start seeing results. And when you see results, it will motivate you to keep going.

Staying Motivated

Of course, there will be times when you feel like giving up. That’s normal! When those times come, it’s important to have a support system in place that will help keep you motivated. This could be a group of like-minded individuals who are pursuing similar goals, a coach or mentor who believes in you, or even just a friend or family member who is cheering you on. Whoever it is, make sure they know what your goals are, so they can help hold you accountable and encourage you when needed.

In addition to having a support system in place, there are also a few other things you can do to stay motivated:

  • Read inspiring stories or listen to podcasts that feature entrepreneurs who have overcome challenges and achieved success
  • Write down your goals and review them regularly
  • Visualize yourself achieving your goals
  • Celebrate each small victory along the way

Remember this…

Remember, 2023 is YOUR year! By setting goals, taking action, and staying motivated, YOU can make things happen. So what are YOU waiting for? Let’s get started!
