Thanks you to all my subscribers, for your continuous support! Wishing you all a year of abundance in happiness, health, wealth, love & success!

Now that we have finally entered a new year and a new decade.. 2020.. how do you feel? I know, many people have been anticipating the new year. For many of us, 2019 was a year of lessons learned. What makes 2020 so exciting, is that fact that those of us who learned and experienced growth from our 2019 challenges are ready.. We are prepared to take on this years challenges and win! Let’s face it, we will no doubt experience new challenges and maybe a few setbacks and disappointments BUT we have also transitioned into a new season.. of abundance! This is the year to secure all the blessings with our name on it. Last years challenge was attached with purpose. I promise you IF you take strategic action, this year will be your year.

Whatever goals you had in 2019 and prior that you did not achieve.. it’s not too late. But, you’ve got to intentionally decide to do something different THIS year, if you do not want a repeat of not achieving the goal. Some of you have been planning to write and publish your book for years now. Many of you have business ideas, a career you have yet to pursue, something that you’ve been dreaming, but have not pursued because of doubt, insecurity, a lack of money, motivation, etc. BUT timeout for excuses. It’s time to take strategic action and manifest those dreams! Here’s a few things to help:

4 Things To Help You Manifest Your Dreams

1) You’ve got to have the right mindset! You have to believe that what you desire to manifest is possible. You have to believe that you are capable of manifesting it, with the help of God the creator of the universe and the universe itself.

Having the right mindset is not just believing your dream is possible, but it’s thinking, speaking and taking positive action! Develop an awareness of the thoughts you think consistently. Be mindful of what thoughts you entertain in addition to what you allow yourself to indulge in via television, radio, social media, etc.

Your mindset is the single most important part of manifestation. The thoughts you consistently think must be in alignment with what you want. What you think about you bring about!

2) Get clear about what your ideal life looks like. Get specific about which goals you want to achieve. Identify, what you need to do; what goals do you need to set and what sets do you need to take to get where you want to go? You must know where you want to go, because this is the foundation of your strategy (game-plan!)

3) You need to have the right strategy! You have to have a game-plan. This is the what and how. Your game-plan tells you what are you going to do and how are you going to do it. Think of this as your roadmap. Without it, you’re just going through the motions of life, without any intention of going anywhere specific. Sad to say, many people are living like this and reach the end of their life with many regrets. Don’t let that be you.

4) You need someONE & someTHING to hold you accountable. You can use a vision board, vision-book or planner as your THING and you can hire a coach or mentor to guide you and a family member or friend to hold you accountable. The key to choosing your someONE is to find someone is, like you, on a journey to get where they are trying to go OR someone who is already where you are trying to get to .

I’ve been blessed to achieve many of my goals and am ready to help you do the same. Are you ready to slay your 2020 goals? Book your Goal Success Strategy Session today!

Goal Success Challenge: Day 7 – Identify & Create Positive Reinforcement

Welcome to Day 7 of the Goal Success Challenge!

For 1 week we’ve tackled 7 steps to setting and slaying our goals! We’ve begun to position ourselves for success in 2020!

We began by visualizing what our ideal life looks like. Then, we got clear on what goals we need to set and what steps we need to take to manifest our dream life. After which, we set strategic smart goals and created a plan of action – by breaking down our goal into small goals, identifying limitations and limiting beliefs and identifying possible solutions or alternatives. That eliminates any excuses upfront, for not getting started!

Don’t let 2020 be a repeat of 2019.

And, please, don’t transition into the New Year without a game plan!

Yes, you will face challenges in 2020. Yes, you will have a few disappointments and may experience a few setbacks. That’s life. But, with a positive mindset and a game plan, you can eliminate unnecessary or “extra” negativity from popping up.

Today, we are covering the final step on our Goal Success Checklist. We are going to identify and create positive reinforcement.

Identify WHO and WHAT will hold you accountable, motivate and remind you to pursue your goals.

Examples:

– Find an accountability partner

– Hire a coach or mentor

– Create a vision board/book

Choose/set as many as you need! And remember, what works for me, may not work for you, so choose what works for you!

If you were to be graded on the discipline you have in your life, would you score a 90% or above? Be honest. If the answer is no, then you need some form of accountability in your life.

There are many “smaller” ways to hold yourself accountable. I try to do so, as much as possible. It’s as simple as setting a date for your goals and each individual action step you take or keeping track of your goals and deadlines on a calendar/planner or Habit Tracker App.

Maybe you want to hire a coach or mentor, but don’t know where to look or can’t afford one at the moment. Like any goal, that would be considered a limitation. There is a solution or alternative, even when lack of money is the issue. You can start small. Start with books, YouTube videos by subject matter experts, etc. You may not be able to take the magnitude of steps that you want to right off the bat, but progress is progress. So, as long as you are CONSISTENTLY making moves that are in alignment with your goal, you’re good!

We have reached the end of the goal success challenge! I hope that you feel more prepared to slay your goals in 2020! You have the strategy to slay your goals in 2020. A strategy that works. But, here’s the thing… it WILL NOT work IF you do not have the RIGHT Mindset. This challenge has been all about providing you with the RIGHT GOAL & the RIGHT PLAN. But, my friend, if you don’t have the right minds.. A positive success “growth” mindset that looks for possibility when their appears to be none.. A mindset that is rooted in discipline and consistency.. A mindset where YOU believe that your goal IS possible… it won’t work.

The strategy works, if you make it work. It’s that simple.

Thank you for joining me in this weeks challenge! I look forward to slaying some goals with you in 2020!

P.S. Can you believe we’re entering a new decade!?

These 7 Words Can Change Your Life

I did not know what I wanted to do with my life.

It was my senior year of college and most of my peers seemed to know what their plans were post-graduation. Some planned to go to grad school and others planned to enter the workforce. No matter what path they were choosing, most seemed to know what field of work and career path they wanted to pursue. Some had internships lined up and others were already interviewing for jobs. But not me. Nope, I had no clue what I wanted to do.

I started my college career as a double major; majoring in music with an emphasis in voice and psychology. Half-way through, I decided to drop one of my majors and focus on one. I chose psychology, because although I loved music, I knew that with my lack of knowing what career I really wanted to pursue, majoring in Psychology would give me flexibility to take my time to decide and to go in multiple directions. Well, that worked out well since the 2nd semester of my senior year arrived and I still didn’t have a clue what I would do.

Fast forward to December of 2016 when I attended a 3 day workshop called Publish a Book and Grow Rich. Y’all, I thought I was going to learn about publishing a book and getting rich, and don’t get me wrong, I did learn about that but I walked away with knowledge of something I’d never thought twice about. Not only that, but it was the beginning of me discovering both my passion and purpose in life. I mean when I first arrived at the event, I had no desire to write and publish another book. However, that weekend, the speaker who taught us, provided a lot of life changing information about mindset. Mindset. That was a term I wasn’t really familiar with. Of course I’d heard the word thrown around before, but I never studied it in depth or learned what it really meant, let alone how it worked.

That weekend changed my life. While I learned valuable tools and techniques for developing and transforming your mindset and achieving your goals, it was 7 words that were spoken time and time again. I will never forget those 7 words, because it was those 7 words that changed the trajectory of my life. It gave me a sense of direction and purpose. Those 7 words can change your life as well, IF you really grasp the meaning behind them.

Mindset is one of the most simple yet complex terms I’ve ever come to know. It sounds so simple, that many people don’t think twice about its meaning. Like literally, we have the power to create our future and our realities simply by the thoughts we think and the words we speak. I mean who hasn’t heard cliches like, “be careful what you think, your thoughts run your life,” “words have power” and “death and life is in the power of the tongue.” I mean these are cliche’s that are not only preached in pulpits, but their taught among atheists and agnostics as well. While the concept is biblical, its popular among those who aren’t into religion at all. It’s so cliche’ that we as humanity, just don’t consider it as much as we should. I mean if we did, most of us wouldn’t complain half as much as we do right?

Those 7 words changed my life, because I began to study and train myself to become more aware and careful of the kind of thoughts I allow myself to think consistently. The more I practiced, the easier it became. Oh trust, I still complain and I’m not always positive. But, it’s amazing how far I’ve come and the results that I’ve seen manifest in my life is all the motivation I need to continue. I’ve become so much more confident and happy in life, ever since I took control of my mindset. The key to changing your life, is changing your mindset. Of course, there’s more to it than that. But, your mindset is the best place to start. Take back your power and realize that negative people and situations only have as much power as you allow them to have. They only have power to influence your mindset. You set the limits and determine how it impacts you.

What you think about, you bring about. Let those words change your life. Whatever you think about consistently, that is what you are attracting into your life. Those words changed my life because I changed the thoughts that I was thinking consistently. I began to focus my thoughts on what I wanted in my life and I began to see those things manifest. Seeing how the information I learned at that 3 day workshop impacted my life, inspired me to want to share that life changing information with others – for a living. It inspired my 3rd book, Empower You! Mindset Transformation: A Daily Devotional for the Mind” and my first business ( I’ll tell you about that later!)

This week I challenge you to pull up YouTube on your phone and watch a few videos on Mindset and the power of your thoughts. And, find a way to practice becoming more aware of your thoughts and focus points throughout the day and to practice changing those negative thought patterns to more positive ones. You can do this through meditation and journaling. As always, feel free to share your thoughts below in the comments & share with someone who needs this!

The Secret to Slaying Your Goals

You have goals, dreams and aspirations! Right now, that is all they are. They are not your reality. Not, because you’re unwilling to do what it takes to make it your reality. But, for some reason you just can’t seem to make it happen. Somewhere along the journey to achieving your goals, you get stuck. Your goals, dreams and aspirations matter.. So, it’s time to get unstuck!

About 3 – 4 years ago, I had a lot of goals. I wanted to graduate college, get a better paying job, move into my own apartment, write and publish my 3rd book, deal with my depression, anxiety and suicidal ideations in a healthy way and more!

I wanted to graduate college, but I ended up doing an additional 1 + 1/2 year due to failing and having to re-take multiple courses. That, also resulted in my gpa dropping, losing my scholarships and taking out multiple student loans. After graduation, I was 23 years old and ready to move into my own place, except I was only working 1 job, working less than 40 hours a week, making $10 an hour. By that time, I’d already written and had 2 books published. I had a concept for my 3rd book, however I had writers block and a lack of motivation. And then, there was the depression, panic attacks and suicidal ideations that I battled all the while I was working as a BHT, working with adults with serious mental illness; supporting, advocating and educating clients on coping with their own anxiety and depression.

For every goal, there was a roadblock that initially stood in my way. The good news is that eventually, I achieved each of those goals. Every goal that I’ve been able to accomplish was because of one thing. Once, you know what it is and how to use it to your advantage, then you have a shot at achieving all of your goals!

I do believe that with God, absolutely anything is possible.

Things did not begin to shift in my life, until December of 2016 when I attended a 3 day Writers conference, that changed my life. I went in expecting to learn about writing and publishing a book, and I did. But, that is not what changed my life. What changed my life was the knowledge I gained about Mindset. I went in with one concept for my 3rd book and walked out with a whole new inspiration. Mindset Transformation. My 3rd book, Empower You! Mindset Transformation: A Daily Devotional for the Mind was inspired by my desire to share what I’ve learned with others.

The learning didn’t end at the conference, it was only the beginning. The books, courses, seminars and conferences that I’ve attended since then, have only increased my knowledge. I took what I learned, and began to apply it to my life. That is when I began to achieve my goals. And, I am ready to share with you what I believe IS the secret to slaying your goals!

I have created a FREE webinar in which I will share with you the secret to slaying your goals. You can also download your FREE copy of the Set Goals & Slay: Petty on Purpose Workbook.
