Venus Fitness 2018 GoalsIf you have been following along then you know this is the final part of a THREE part SERIES.  In this post I will share my #2018Goals and #2018Feels.

In my previous post I outlined my goal setting process and offered a FREE 8 page workbook for download to help you set and achieve your #2018Goals and  #2018Feels.  If you haven’t downloaded it yet you can get your copy here, along with some inspiration. 😉


In 2018 I want to continue eliminating drama from my life, while cultivating a calm, balanced and connected life.  Focusing on being present and savoring each and every moment of this miracle of life, even the hard moments.  I will get clear about who I am, what makes me feel the most alive.  I am going to change my story and rid myself of self-limiting beliefs.


  1. Calm and balanced – I will incorporate yoga or swimming into my routine 1-2 times a week. Hit the gym for 4-5 one hour workouts a week with one minimum of one long run per week..
  2. Healthy and Strong –I will run the BMO half marathon in 1 hour and 50 minutes.
  3. Bold and Challenged –I will hike the Chief by year end.


  1. Confident and Self Aware-  I will spend the first half of 2018 identifying self limiting beliefs  through personal development and exploration exercises. I will spend the latter half of the year exploiting the falsity of these beliefs with a project I have in mind called the #BirthOfVenus.
  2. PRESENT-  I will continue to practice #PositiveAffirmations and #IntentionSetting daily and weekly. I have developed twelve new affirmations and nine new intentions that work with my overall goals.
  3. Optimistic- I will focus on solutions and opportunities rather than problems. I will surround myself with positive reminders.


  1. Vibrant and Connected – Minimum one #FamilyFun Activity a month.
  2. Adventurous and Inspired –Our four week family vacation to Europe this summer will help satisfy these feels. #MeiersDoEurope2018
  3. Love & Connection– Minimum 1 date night a month. New to 2018 we will host six dinner parties in 2018 to ensure we connect with old friends, and develop new friendships. #DateNight #Friendsgiving


  1. Accomplished– I will post two blogs a month for 12 months.  Increase my website traffic by 50%, increase my readership by 20%, and my social media reach by 10%.
  2. Energized and Creative- I will release monthly newsletters for subscribers, develop an accountability program for 2019, and work on my writing with the project #BrithOfVenus.


  1. Prosperous-Increase my combined income streams by 10% by year end.
  2. Growth and Security– Continue to contribute to my RRSP Plans, supplement my TFSA with an additional thousand dollars by year end.

 Let’s Get Real….for Real though

I have spent far too much of my precious time playing out dramas, worrying about things I cannot control, seeking approval, justifying my actions, complaining, and dissecting the lives of idiots. 2018  will be the end of junk food thoughts- the what-ifs, how comes, the maybe one days.

I will:

  • Appreciate how special I am
  • Drown myself in affirmations
  • Do things I love
  • Not compare myself to others
  • Forgive myself
  • Love myself
  • Stop caring what other people think
  • Ask myself why?

    These are great goals and really positive which is nice to see. One of my goals is just to be kinder and nicer to myself! Sounds simple but isnt always easy is it!

    Love how you have categorized the goals under particular headings. This keeps things organized and customers can focus on it individually. For me On all the goals considered, I would like to work on my fitness goals more than all the rest.

    At the beginning of the year I always try to set a goal for the coming year and strive to meet it by mid year. My goal for this year is to strive with my blog and not get stressed out by it.

    • VenusFitness-Shannon says:

      That is a good goal. I’m glad to know I am not the only one the gets stressed out by it. Cheers to achieving our 2018 feels!

    Getting rid of “junk food” thoughts is a great goal! I will have to add that to my goals as I am guilty of spending way too much time on these times of thoughts.

  5. Cia Black says:

    I like the idea of breaking your goals down into subcategory. THis is great organizational skills. And the goal in which you selected won’t just make this year more promising but will have an affect on the rest of your life .

    Hi Shannon,
    For some reason I cannot access the download on my phone or computer. Sounds like just what I need. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Love these – and how you focus on the outcome of what you would like to feel about each topic, and when you drilled down, placed a number next to the goal. Happy New Year – I am seeing you WILDLY successful!!

  8. Amy Dong says:

    You’ve got some wonderful and challenging aspirations for the new year…definite goals to work towards and hopefully check off as you go! 🙂 I love the “how you want to feel” part… peace, calm…those really resonate with me. I’m a total do-er, on-the-goer, and non-rester. So I’d love to make margin for calming things like yoga, prayer, and rest time this year.

  9. Elizabeth O says:

    My 2018 goal is to love myself and my body more. I hope you smash your goals I’ve no doubt you will. Happy New Year 🙂
