2021 Resolution IS NOT like the 2020 Resolution!
Coming out of 2020, one of the most challenging years that many have faced in a lifetime, we need to stand together and focus on the positivity of 2021 and what we CAN and WILL accomplish. This year's resolution is all about YOUR GOALS and accomplishing them to the best that you can. You will start by creating your own set of 2021 Resolution Goals and send them to Charlene, then at the end of the year you will write a letter to yourself that starts with "I am proud of you..." and email or send to Charlene. In between those two activities will be a series of conversations that will range in topics to help you accomplish your goals all while in a extremely supportive "lean in" group.
Commit now to be at the very beginning of the conversation.
The first series is about Setting Goals that will range from Dec 28 - Jan 29.
1st Goal: Postmarked Jan 31st Mail 2021 Resolutions to Charlene
* Must Add Minimum 1 Offroad Related Goal
END of YEAR
After a whole year of challenging yourself and trying it is reward time.
The last series is about Rewarding that will span the month of December.
Last Project Due: December 6th Email or Mail "I am proud of you..." to Charlene
THROUGHOUT the Year
Throughout the year we will be diving into different topics.
We will have fun thought provoking projects to complete along the way.
We may choose to read books together holding each other accountable.
Lean In Group
The set of Ladies that choose to take a deeper dive into their Resolutions will be added into a special WhatsApp group. (Desktop or Phone = download now)
This group is to be positive, encouraging, helping to get you over a hurdle and maybe most importantly, safe for you to open up and discuss your challenges.
We will likely schedule Face-to-Face Blue Jeans (like Zoom) meetings to have group discussions on different topics.
Yes, we all need rewards, we get it!
The BIG WIN? Your Accomplishments throughout the year!
Ladies Offroad Network's Encouragement will be a entry into the 2021 12 Days of Giving pot for:
- Signing Up
- Sending January Resolutions
- Sending December "I'm Proud of You..."
- Other projects MAY be added ~ for example ~ Book Completion, Vision Board, etc.
~ Possible Topics for the Year ~
Gaining Skills - What do you need to make those goals?
Self Induced Obstacles - Get out of your own way!
Habits & Routines - What you do daily defines who you are!
Self Awareness - Partnering with people to be more successful is a good plan!
Communication - Is what you are saying...what you are meaning?

Where Are We Working?
Everything will be online!

To submit any projects we will utilize email.
Social Media adds a bonus for you, but is not necessary.
Goals! by Brian Tracy
As part of the 2021 Resolution, we will be setting GOALS to strive to hit by encouraging each other. To help us do that our reading crew has picked up Goals! by Brian Tracy.
I scanned Chapter 6 for you...
Cutting to the main topic as outlined in Chapter 6, there are
7 Keys to Goal Setting
“Fifty successful business owners were asked for their best time management tool. 49 out of the 50 held up a yellow writing pad,” Tracy says. “Their business tool was simple: simply making a list. Most businesses fail because they’re not clear. They don’t think on paper.”
Tracy emphasized the importance of pen and paper. It’s the physical process of writing — not the words — that activates all three major areas of the brain and makes our ideas and goals stick longer term. The following 7 keys (and writing them down!) can help you achieve more clarity and the subsequent boost in self-confidence that will follow.
Key 1: Decide exactly what you want. Most people in the world don’t know what they want and when they want to accomplish it by. Make sure what you want is so simple that a 6-year old can both understand it and explain it to another 6-year old.
Key 2: Write it down. If your goals aren’t written down, they’re just a fantasy. If you write down one important goal today, things will start to happen for you.
Key 3: Set a deadline. Whatever you do, don’t set open-ended goals. Every goal should come with a “use-by” date. This simple action adds an extra level of clarity that most choose to ignore.
Key 4: Make a list. Next, make a list of everything you need to do to accomplish your goal. This doesn’t have to be accomplished all in one sitting. Keep a pad of paper by your bed and add items as they come to mind.
Key 5: Organize your list. Once your goal is clearly defined and you’ve created a list of all the action items that need to happen in order to accomplish it, it’s time to organize your list. Prioritize it from most important to least important.
Key 6: Take action. Taking action sounds simple, but it’s hard. Get up and do something. It can be an easy next step like revising your paper, making a phone call, or ordering a book. The important thing is you’re up and moving towards your goal.
Key 7: Do something every day. Tracy recommends taking out a clean sheet of paper and writing down the next 10 goals you’d like to accomplish. Then pretend you have a magic wand and the ability to make any of these goals a reality in the next 24 hours. Which would you choose? Circle that goal, write it on a clean sheet of paper, and begin these seven keys again.
Then you apply the
12 Steps to Set and Achieve Any Goal
- Have a Desire: What Do You Really Want?
- Believe That Your Goal is Achievable
- Write Your Goal Down
- Determine Your Starting Point
- Determine Why You Want It
- Set a Deadline
- Identify the Obstacles in Your Way
- Determine the Additional Knowledge and Skills You Need
- Determine the People Whose Help You Will Need
- Make a Plan: Put It All Together
- Visualize Your Goal Continually
- Never Give Up
Never giving up means backing everything you do with persistence and determination. It means resolving in advance that you will never give up, and making the decision, long before you face any obstacles or difficulties , that you will stick with it until you reach your goal.
Bringing It All Together
- Make a list of at least 10 goals for the next 12 months. Take out a clean sheet of paper and at the top of the page write the word “Goals” with today’s date. Make a list of at least 10 goals that you want to accomplish within the next 10 months. Write the goals in the present tense, such as, “I weigh X number of pounds,” or “I earn X number of dollars this year.”
- Identify your Major Definite Purpose. Read through your list of goals and select the one that answers this question: “What one goal on this list, if I accomplished it, would have the greatest possible impact on my life?” This becomes the goal that you will use for the 12-part goal-setting process above.
- Apply the 12-step goal-setting process. Now that you have selected a goal that you really want and believe you can achieve it, write your goal on a separate sheet of paper, and set a deadlines. Write out a list of reasons you want to achieve this goal. Identify the obstacles that stand between you and the attainment of this goal. Identify the knowledge and the skills you will need to achieve the goal. Identify the people whose cooperation and support you’ll need. Make a plan to accomplish this goal. Take action on your plan and do something every day that moves you toward your goal. Visualize your goal continually as if you had already achieved it, and resolve that you will never give up until you are successful.
Quotes Shared by Ladies Offroad Network Readers:
As seen in the What's App Group:
"The fact is that you have more potential than you could ever use in your entire lifetime. No one is better than you and no one is smarter than you. People are just smarter or better in different areas at different times." CH4, PG 44
“Once you decide to accept complete responsibility for yourself, your situation, and everything that happens to you, you can turn confidently toward your work and the affairs of your life.” CH2, PG 23
“...refuse to make excuses or to justify your behaviors.” CH2, PG 22
“One of your most important goals, if you want to be truly happy and successful, is to free yourself from negative emotions” CH 2, PG18
“Make a decision this very day to challenge and reject any self-limiting beliefs that you might have that could be holding you back.” CH4, PG51
“You are responsible for the personal strategic planning of your own life and career” CH2, PG24
“Goals must be balanced among your career or business, your financial life, your family, your health, your spiritual life, and your community involvement” CH6, PG65
“The fourth key to goal setting is that your goals must be Challenging. They must cause you to stretch a little bit. They must be beyond anything you have accomplished in the past. Your goals should have about a 50 percent probability of success. This makes the process of striving toward the goals slightly stressful, but forcing yourself to stretch also brings out many of your best qualities.” This statement is so true with off-roading a new trail. CH6, PG64 in my e-book version.
"You have unlimited potential, and you are completely responsible"
"Know who you are, what you believe in, and what you stand for"
"Your values make you who you are"
“we greatly overestimate what we can accomplish in one year. But we greatly underestimate what we can accomplish in five years” CH5, PG56
"In personal strategic planning, you should begin with a long-term view of your life. You should begin by practicing idealization in everything you do. In the process of idealization, you create a five-year fantasy for yourself and begin thinking about what your life would look like in five years if it were perfect in every respect." CH5 PG54
"In blue-sky thinking, you imagine that all things are possible for you, just like looking up into a clear blue sky with no limits. You project forward several years and imagine that your life is perfect in every respect. You then look back to where you are today and ask yourself this question: What would have to have happened for me to have created my perfect future?" CH5 PG55
