Jan 20, 2022

Having a system to consistently make progress towards your goal will help you stay on track and achieve your goal faster.  Here are six steps to help you consistently make progress towards your goal.

 

Create An Action Plan

Start by getting a paper planner.  On paper, write down an extensive list of the tasks you need to complete in order to successfully achieve your goal.  Then, choose at least one task that you’re going to do each day to move you closer to your goal.  Create your action plan either first thing in the morning or the night before.  This way you’ll have a clear view of what you need to be doing each day.

 

Schedule Your Task

Next, schedule a daily task in your planner with a specific time.  It’s usually easiest to do this task first thing in the morning.  That way, you won’t leave it up to chance and get to the end of the day without completing it.  Set aside the time you need to get this one...

Five Things To Let Go Of This Year

Dec 30, 2021

In order to achieve your goals in the new year, you’re going to need to let go of a few things that have been holding you back.  Leave behind what’s not serving you so that you can step into the new year with a clear, fresh, and focused mind.  Here are five things to let go of this year.

 

Validation

The first thing you’re going to need to let go of is seeking validation from others.  Stop looking for approval from other people before taking action towards your goals.  What someone else thinks has no bearing on what you can achieve.  Constantly searching for approval will only hinder your progress towards achieving your goals.  Don’t let others limit what you can and cannot do.  Instead, focus on what you want and what you’re working towards.  Find your own internal acceptance by loving who you are and being proud of yourself for what you can achieve.

 

Worry

One of the biggest things you’ll need...

Dec 23, 2021

As the year winds down, now is the perfect time to reflect over the past year and figure out how you need to show up in the new year in order to achieve the goals that you’ve set.  Take a deep look at who you are being and what you need to do differently in the new year.  Here are three steps to help you do just that.

 

Who You’ve Been Being

Start by focusing on who you’ve been being over this past year.  Think about how you have shown up for yourself and your goals.  Maybe you’ve done things that have pushed you outside your comfort zone.  You may have expanded your comfort zone by putting yourself out there and trying some new things that you’ve never done before.  Or, perhaps you held yourself back by letting the fear, worry, and self doubt prevent you from achieving your goals.  Reflect back over this past year to truly take a look at who you have been being and how you have been showing up in your life.
