How to Finally Achieve Your Goals

92% of people who set New Year goals don’t achieve them. That means only 8% do. Are you a part of the 8%? If not, what can you do to change that?

Many people set goals. Not all see them through to completion. I am on a mission to empower as many people as I can, to not just clarify and set their goal, but to pursue it and see it through to completion. Often times, we start out strong but for a variety of reasons we get stuck or give up. We do a good job at focusing on the reasons WHY NOT. But, we don’t put as much energy into identifying a solution. So, I’ve told you that I’m on a mission right? To empower as many people as I can to pursue and achieve their 2020 goals. I will do this by providing an opportunity; an opportunity to learn THEE strategy to clarify, set and achieve your 2020 goals. Once you learn the strategy, you will be able to use it over and over and over again.. No matter how big or small your goal APPEARS to be, the strategy works. How so? Because the strategy I wish to share with you IS flexible. It allows you to embrace trial and error, but provides the support and foundation you need to see your goal through to completion. I am a certified Goal Success Coach. But, I will be the first to tell you that you don’t just need a goal. You need to clarify and set the right kind of goal AND you need a STRATEGY. And, not just any strategy, you need the RIGHT strategy.

I have discovered and outlined a strategy that has worked for me and has allowed me to achieve many of my goals! The reason I say MANY of my goals is because some of my goals are still a work in progress, but I am well on my way to achieving them, because I am still actively pursuing them. The reason many people fail to achieve their goals, is not because it’s impossible, but because they STOP pursuing the goal. The strategy I have outlined will help you keep going when you “feel stuck.” I am ready to share THEE strategy with YOU!

Are you ready? I don’t want to be the only slaying some seemingly impossible – intimidating lookin’ dreams in 2020! 2020 IS going to be THEE year we step outside of our comfort zones and claim all the blessings that have our name on it. We will walk into the New Year with the right goals, the right plan and with the right mindset! I’m goin, whether you come or not. But, I want you to join me! That is why I’ve created a 7 Day Challenge: The 7 Day Goal Slaying Challenge! Note: This challenge is NOT about slaying your goals in 7 Days! It’s about completing 7 Steps that will have you SLAYING your 2020 goals, period. How do I know? Because, these are the 7 Steps that helped me SLAY my goals in 2017 – 2019.

Of course, if you’re anything like me, you are wanting to know what GOALS exactly have I achieved!? To name a few; using my 7 step strategy I’ve been able to:

  • Enhance my confidence + become more comfortable sharing my story, promoting myself and business on social media.
  • Launched, promoted, re-launched and continued promoting and sold many copies of my 3rd book!
  • I got started! Faced fear, broke through limiting beliefs, stepped outside of my comfort zone to.. finish my coaching certification, register & launch my coaching
    business.
  • Left my comfortable job working night shift, where I was miserable and complained all the time and got a NEW job I enjoy with many opportunities for growth! All that, after countless interviews and rejections.
  • Traveled and checked something off my bucket list!
  • Bounced back from a toxic relationship in less than 7 days!
  • Adopted a kitten and became a furr-mom!
  • Paid off 1 of 7 students loans! Some progress is better than no progress.

Last year I..

  • Launched my 3rd book
  • Booked multiple radio/podcast interviews to promote my book

Before 2018 and 2019…

  • Paid off credit card debt in full
  • Graduated with degree in 5 and 1/2 yrs after failing and retaking several courses multiple times, losing scholarships and taking out $60k in student loans
  • Moved out of my parents home into my 1rst apartment paying $900+ just for rent + other expnses while working less than 40 hours a week making $10 an hour
  • Overcame shyness and fear of public speaking
  • Became more confident
  • Learned to manage my depression and anxiety in a healthy way

Listen, it doesn’t matter how small or insignificant your goals may seem to anyone else. If IT matters to you, then it IS a goal worth pursuing and achieving!

I have created a Checklist which you can grab! We’ll be checking our list and checking it twice – cause we’re not playin about these 2020 goals. When you sign up for the 7 Day Challenge, you will be able to download the checklist, my set goals & slay workbook & will have access to a video each day of the challenge, in which I break down each step to enhance understanding and give you a few ideas as well.

I’m looking forward to sharing my GOALS SLAYING STRATEGY with you! If you’re ready COMMENT the word CHALLENGE in the comments OR click on the link in my bio to sign up. Turn on your notifications & subscribe to my page at KeziaMarie.co/blog. Challenge begins December 16th – December 22nd.

Now, you may be wondering why I’d dare to share my strategy so freely, when I’m a coach launching a coaching business. I’ll tell you why. Even with the RIGHT strategy, sometimes you need SUPPORT in the form of a human. Yeah, I said it. Some of us need a coach, mentor, accountability partner.. someone! Not, just some THING to help you on your pursuit. And, I realize that not everybody has somebody in their corner giving the right balance of cheering them on and holding them accountable. As a Goal Success Coach, that is what I’ve been trained to do. So, I’m not worried out THEE Strategy or not so secret “Secret” being out there. Many people will “know” the strategy, but won’t implement the strategy without someone to hold them accountable. With that in mind, stay on the lookout because I will be sharing an amazing opportunity to get that kind of support really soon (HINT: It’s happening SPRING 2020!) Now, let’s go slay some goals!

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.
