“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!”
– Benjamin Franklin
It’s common knowledge that during that at the start of each new year, many people, all over the world set new goals and new year resolutions. It’s also commonly known that most start of strong, but instead of gaining momentum, most people fall off around March and April. Many of us know this to be true and can raise our hand it admittance that we are guilty of this too.. giving up on our goal or resolution. Have you ever stopped to wonder why so many individuals continue to go through the cycle of starting and stopping when it comes to pursuing their goals? Because, if it’s one thing I know, is that LIFE happens to us ALL. No one Is immune to unexpected challenges, roadblocks and setbacks occurring. That’s just life right. Yet, some or should I say ALL of the most successful people in the world have faced multiple challenges at some point in their lives. The difference between them and everyone else is that they kept going!
In 2020, I encourage you to keep going! But, I’m not here to encourage or motivate you. I’m here to empower you to keep going! So, I’ll tell you what you want to know. Let’s face it, it’s easy to give up on our goals when things get tough or uncomfortable. But, how do you NOT give up on your goal? How do you KEEP going?
You need to have a plan.
Not just any plan. You need to have a strategic plan.
Having a strategic plan of action means that you have a plan for HOW you will KEEP going WHEN roadblocks and setbacks present themselves.
I promise you, roadblocks and setback will arise. And, that is when many people get discouraged. BUT, when you have a strategic plan, you have a flexible plan that gives you options. Meaning, IF you plan A does not work, you have a plan B, C and D.
You are more likely to keep going when challenges arise when you are prepared in advance.
Don’t have a plan? I’m here to help.

A few tips for writing out your goals – strategically!
1) Keep a journal specifically for writing out your goals daily.
2) Get as specific as you possibly can.
3) Write your goals as if you already have what you desire to manifest.
4) Connect emotionally to what you are writing. It helps to speak it out loud and to visualize how you’ll feel when you get it! Bring those positive emotions and energy into the present moment.
