Your First Action Steps in 2021

Happy New Year, I hope you and your family are well. And happy Monday! Our first one in 2021, here we go!

Maybe you’re stepping into the year gently with a few more days off this week, or maybe you can’t wait to get started?

As we look ahead to what can be, to what you want to create this year, let’s start by exploring your goals.

With everything going on around us, setting goals will help you keep focused, keep moving and give you sound foundations for a successful year ahead.

To help stop any overwhelming feelings while you’re exploring your goals, or if you’re asking, ‘where do I start,?’ divide your annual goals into Quarters. Or just start there and set goals for the first quarter, (Q1 January to the end of March) I do love to make things more do-able for you. So, my lovely,

What do you want to achieve in Q1?

If you’ve already set your goals for Q1, revisit them today and refresh your focus, your desires, your purpose.

If you haven’t yet set your goals and you’re reading my award-winning book, head to Page 59 to get clarity and focus on what you want to achieve in Quarter 1. Set your goals for success, and discover your sales superpowers. Let’s go! 💃

What do you want to make happen over the next three months? To start something new? To create a new program or promote a new service? Is this the year you’ll write your book? Move house? What do you want to see happen?

Write your goals down.

And, may I ask, have you told anyone else about your goals?

Does that sound exciting to you or terrifying?

You’ve probably heard before that sharing your goals with someone you know well who supports you, your coach and goal partner works wonders.

My Mastermind Groups achieve more by setting clear goals each month, with all in the group knowing about each others’ goals. I love it when they surprise themselves with just how much they’ve achieved when I call them for their Accountability Power Hours during the month too.

If you’re interested to hear more about my VIP Mastermind Groups please get in touch with me, my clients usually DOUBLE their revenue working with me. We’re starting on the 14th January if you’d like to find out how the Mastermind Group can propel your business to the next level, please contact me or read more here.


This is what Hannah Hall said about working in one of my Mastermind Groups. “I needed to go back to Jo to pull my focus back to the bigger picture. She has this wonderful way of making you appreciate what you are capable of then setting goals to achieve it and holding you accountable to these goals!
I have now been back in an Amberlife VIP Mastermind group for a year and it’s been the most successful year I’ve had, I’ve more than doubled my turnover, again! The team has grown, business has developed and we’ve won some fantastic contracts. As well as these business achievements I have managed to protect my time with my family which is so important to me.” Hannah Hall, Sunflower Corporation.


And as your Monday Motivation coach with your first Action Point of 2021, I’d like to encourage you to write down your goals for Q1, and tell me or someone else about them, to help you get more results too.

Maybe you’re put off by the words, ‘setting a goal’?

Reframe it to ‘setting your intention’. It creates direction and drive.

Power your intention with your purpose.

And you’ll be unstoppable!

You’ve got this 👏🏼🧡

🤩 Happy planning and visualising your goals to make your Monday matter.

If you’d like some one-to-one help schedule time with me to Get Clarity on your goals for 2021 and feel good along the way.

Let’s create. Let’s build. Let’s do this!

To your success and happiness,

Jo James xx
