Dec 01, 2022

It’s officially December!  You may be feeling the pressure to try and make up for lost time in regards to your goals.  You maybe thinking that you can scramble, push extra hard, work furiously, and actually squeak out achieving the goal you’ve set by the end of the year.  But, is that really the best move?  Be realistic with what you can achieve this month.  Be practical and don’t overwhelm yourself by overloading your schedule with ten million to dos.  Here are four things you can achieve this month in order to set yourself up for success in the new year.

 

Your Goal

How To Survive The Holidays

Nov 24, 2022

With the holidays around the corner, life can get busy and your goal gets pushed to the back burner.  You have a lot going on and adding one more thing to your plate feels overwhelming.  Here is how to survive the holidays and still make progress toward your goal.

 

Self Care

With so much on your to do list, the holidays can feel extremely overwhelming.  That’s why it’s important to find time in your schedule to just breathe.  Take a beat and pause.  If you’re able to, squeeze in a nap or quiet time to read a book.  You might have to get up a bit earlier to have this peace and quiet to yourself.  Be still in the meditative silence.  Escape the busyness of the holidays and go for a walk to clear your thoughts.  All of these may be tough to do during the holidays but it is so important for your mental health and wellbeing.  You have to take care of yourself if you expect to be present and there for others too at...

What You Should Do To Compare Your Progress

Nov 17, 2022

It’s so easy to compare where you are to someone else.  You see someone else achieve success but you don’t know the whole story.  You can’t compare your progress to someone else who has been at it longer, had more practice, or has had more resources available to them.  Especially if you haven’t been taking consistent action to achieve your goal.  Here is what you should do instead of comparing your progress to someone else.

 

Consistent Action

When you see someone else succeed, take a look and see what they did and how they achieved success.  Usually, it boils down to being consistent, more often, and for a longer period of time.  Massive progress is made by taking consistent daily action.  It’s not working on your goal every now and then, it’s being consistent.  Use the success of others as inspiration to fuel you and motivate you into action.  There is no reason why you can’t achieve their...

How To React To The Success Of Others

Nov 10, 2022

Comparing your success to others can be triggering.  You can have one of two reactions when you someone shares their success or progress with you.  Let’s take a look at each of these reactions and see how it helps you or hinders you to achieve your own goals.

 

Success Trigger

The first reaction is to be triggered by another person’s success.  You might feel frustrated, annoyed, bitter, resentful, or that something is wrong with you because you’re not making progress at the same rate as someone else.  You might feel like you’re not doing enough, you’re not far enough along, or that you’re ultimately behind.  You may get jealous, upset, or envious and think that there is less success available for you.  Perhaps you even react by discounting or down playing the success of others because it initially makes you feel better to justify why you haven’t achieved success yet.  You find yourself making excuses...

How To Get Out Of The Comparison Trap

Nov 03, 2022

Sometimes you can get caught up in the success of other people.  You start comparing where you are to where someone else is.  Perhaps, you don’t quite measure up.  Then, you beat yourself up over your lack of progress because you’re not quite where you’d like to be.  Success is not happening fast enough for you.  But, often you think other people achieve success quicker and for whatever reason, you start to think that it’s just not possible for you.  This comparison trap is not a healthy place to be.  Here are five things you can do when you find yourself in the comparison trap.

 

Your Success

First, show yourself some compassion.  Stop beating yourself up.  You have achieved success in now and the past, no matter how small it may seem.  Don’t belittle your progress and instead celebrate your success.  Show yourself some gratitude.  Be grateful for where you are and just how far...

Three Key Beliefs You Must Have To Achieve Your Goal

Oct 27, 2022

One of the hardest things to do is to actually start to achieve your goal.  You may have set a goal for yourself, but you haven’t taken action to achieve it.  Perhaps you’re waiting for everything to be perfectly lined up or maybe it’s just not the right time.  It could even be fear, worry, or self doubt that’s holding you back from taking action.  In any case, your goal won’t wait forever.  Here are three key beliefs you must have to achieve your goal.

 

You’re Ready

First, stop waiting for everything to be perfect or for all your ducks to be in a row.  Otherwise, you’ll just be waiting forever because that will never happen.  You have to start from where you are.  You don’t need to educate yourself more, gain more knowledge, or accumulate more tools.  You have everything you need within you to achieve your goal.  You can make this happen but you just have to start.  Stop...

Creating Motivation To Achieve Your Goal

Oct 20, 2022

You’re feeling really bummed because you’ve stopped taking action to achieve your goal.  You were doing so well too.  You disciplined yourself to start taking action but then for whatever reason you stopped.  You still deeply want to achieve your goal.  But, you’ve lost some motivation and you’re wondering how to get back on track to achieve your goal.  You must reignite your motivation to achieve your goal again by creating a shift within yourself to take action.

 

Procrastination

Procrastination is something that everyone does.  Procrastination is when you put off doing something because it triggers a stress response or some other negative feeling inside you.  It’s easier to procrastinate rather that doing what you need to get done.  You can quickly come up with excuses as to why you don’t feel like taking action towards your goal.  For instance, it’s taking too long, you’re just not...

Battle To Win The War And Achieve Your Goal

Oct 13, 2022

You’ve started taking action to achieve your goal.  But, you’re hitting a few obstacles and road blocks that are preventing you from moving forward to achieve it.  In fact, you’re no longer taking action towards your goal at all and you’re feeling really bad about it.  With each day that passes, you fall further and feel lower than before.  This is an internal battle you’re struggling to win.  Here is how to battle and win the war so that you achieve your goal.

 

Thoughts

You may find yourself going down the rabbit hole of all the thoughts that you can’t stick to anything, you’re incompetent, useless, or even untrustworthy because you’re unable to keep the promise that you’d finally achieve your goal.  You might think you’re a failure and that you’ve made a mistake.  Maybe you should just throw in the towel and forget it.  At this point, it’s too late to achieve your...

Changing Of The Seasons

Oct 06, 2022

With the change in the weather, it marks a change in seasons.  You may be coming into fall, winter, spring, or summer.  But, just like the weather changes seasons, your life has seasons too.  You may be going through a tough time or simply feeling like you’re out of alignment that something isn’t quite right.  It’s in these moments that you need to reassess where you are in your life.  Take inventory to see what’s working and what isn’t.  You don’t have to continue on your current trajectory.  You have the power to create change.  Change is hard but there is a lot to learn with the changing of the seasons.

 

Reassess Your Life

Your seasons may not change every three months like the calendar predicts.  However, that’s a good timeframe to keep in mind so that you can complete a check in with yourself.  Taking a hard look at your life every three months allows you to see if you’re...

Finding Time For What Matters Most

Sep 29, 2022

You are a creature of habit.  You have routines from the way you get ready in the morning, traveling the same route to work, to then coming home to unwind so that you can do it all over again the next day.  Your routine becomes something that you don’t have to think about.  You just do it.  But, without having to put in much conscious thought, you can easily lose track of what matters most in your life.  The things around you become white noise when you do the same things day in and day out.  You must make it a conscious habit to keep the things that matter most to you in plain sight.

 

Finding Time

Sometimes you get swept up in this busyness of life that you lose track of what’s most important.  Dates with friends and family get pushed until another time when you’re not so busy.  Vacations aren’t booked because your schedule is too full to get away.  You avoid going after your goals and dreams because...
