How You Can Still Be Successful and Achieve Your Goals in 2021

Happy New Year Set Goals & Slay Family and Friends!

Although we are still recovering from 2020, I am excited about what God is going to do in 2021. 2020 was rough and seemingly unrelenting at times.. And 2021, has already shown a few challenges already.. But, I am optimistic that ALL things are already working together for our good.

As we kick off the New Year, I thought I would share with you my process for setting goals and creating my Success Game-plan for 2021.

I believe that it is soo important for us to set ourselves up for the success that we want to achieve in the upcoming year. In fact, it’s more important that we do, this year, than it was in the previous years, simply because we are experiencing a new normal. And, just because we entered a New Year does not mean that the challenges we faced will suddenly go away. Many people on social media appeared eager to wave goodbye 2020, but neglected to set goals and create a plan for 2021, because 2020 was so disappointing in many ways.

We will face more challenges in 2021. But we still have work to do. God still has a purpose and plan for our lives. And, our DREAMS are still possible. But, it is imperative that we set goals and create a STRATEGY so that we are in prime position to challenge what comes to challenge us and continue on our pursuit!

So, let’s jump in family. This is my how I set myself up for success each year.

At the end of each year and at the end of each quarter, I like to take time to reflect..

▪️ On my goals
▪️ My progress
▪️ Wins and Losses
▪️ Lessons learned

At the start of each New Year and new quarter, I take time to:

▪️ Pray
▪️ Meditate
▪️ Decide what to focus on most
▪️ Map out a strategy

If you have something you want to accomplish in 2021, it is more important now, than ever before that you have a STRATEGY.

I know many individuals, and even myself at one point, have been tempted to shy away from setting goals and creating any kind of game-plan because of how hard we were hit in 2020.

2020 was a challenging year in so many ways. Many of our plans were disrupted and many people were forced to make game-changing decisions that they were not prepared to make.

2020 forced us outside of our comfort zones.

2020 forced us to pivot, and think outside the box.

In order to pivot, your MINDSET must shift first.

Read that again.

Because, anybody who decided they would NOT or could not make adjustments to coexist with the changes occurring in our world, did not have a mindset shift.

Without a mindset shift, you are blinded. You are not open to possible, new opportunities or alternative routes to reaching your goals and manifesting your dreams.

So, in 2021 it is necessary to not only have the right mindset, but also the right strategy.

You need a Strategic game-plan that tells you WHERE you wanna go, HOW you’re gonna get there and WHAT you’re gonna do IF things don’t go as planned.

How many of you had plans that were thrown off track in 2020?

Pretty much everybody right?

I encourage you to create a strategy that incorporates a plan for WHAT you can do IF and WHEN something unexpected happens.

Life often happens when we least expect it. But, that doesn’t mean we should live in fear or never set any goals. Instead, we should PLAN as best as we can in advance. Identify possible limitations & limiting beliefs upfront. Then, identify possible solutions or alternatives.

Giving up is one thing. Not even trying and failing to start is another.

Grab your copy of the Set Goals & Slay Workbook if you need guidance in setting your goals and mapping out your game-plan for 2021.

I am a firm believer that we should acknowledge God in all of our ways and that He will direct our paths (Reference: Proverbs 3:6). But, I also believe it is important to have a strategic plan of action IF we want to shoot our best shot at slaying our BIG and sometimes impossible looking goals.

Have a Blessed & Productive week (Even if that means resting).

Finding Purpose During the Pandemic

2020 has challenged us all on a social, economic, health and personal level. Many of us have fought battles no one else knew about and have shed silent tears. Some of us have felt like giving up on our goals and some.. on life altogether. We have witnessed so many people lose their peace of mind, their jobs and even their lives. We have watched how this pandemic, continued social injustice and more has flipped the lives of soo many individuals up side down. We are now living in this new normal and many of us are just beginning to admit that, things will never go back to how they were before. Nowadays, peace of mind is the most valuable thing that we have. And, our ability to pivot in challenging situations, specifically inconvenient, unforseen events, is a superpower. It is YOUR superpower.

My friend, what I am about to say, I say with NO intent to disregard any of the souls that are no longer with us. But, I want you to know that YOU are still standing because your marathon is not over. You are still standing, because you still have a purpose to fulfil. You are still standing because, you are not finished yet AND God, is not through with you yet. He still wants to work for you, with you and through you! He still wants to manifest HIS purpose in your life. He will complete what he has started in you, but you must be willing to do your part. You must commit to the process. You must, keep going!

I am stopping by today to encourage you to KEEP going. I know, 2020 did not pan out how you hoped or even how you expected. Listen, we ALL are feeling this way. No one expected the pandemic to occur or to effect all of our lives in the way that is has. But, you’ve got to press on. Don’t give up on your goals, don’t give up on your BIG dreams, don’t give up on God and don’t give up on yourself. Setbacks are temporary, they are not set in stone. Delayed does not mean denied. “No” does not always mean never. Sometimes, it just means not right now. You’ve got to keep going!

You are strong. You are are MORE than a conqueror. You have what it takes to MANIFEST your dreams. It’s up to you to shift your focus and make it so that this pandemic and everything that has resulted from it, inspires you! If you look closely, you’ll see that even in the pandemic, a lot of people have given birth to new dreams! People have been put in positions to where they had to make a decision. Either, they could give up OR they could create something new. People have started their own businesses, others have used the extra time while being on lockdown to start their blogs and podcasts, write their books, invest in online education, read more books, spend more time with their kids and even making their spiritual life and health a priority again. Yes, there are a lot of businesses that have gone under and a lot of other negative things that have happened ALL year long.. But, I’m telling you, there are a lot of positives that have come out of it as well.

I walked into 2020 ready to manifest my dream car, move into my new apartment closer to be closer to my job, get promoted and attain financial freedom through multiple streams of income. I wanted 2020 to be a year of results. But instead, ironically, 2020 brought awareness, clarity, and exposure to some things. My eyes were opened to see things.. 2020! 2020 had other plans. Covid-19 happened, I faced challenges in repairing my credit, I also had to go back to the drawing board and revise my business branding and marketing approach.

In 2020, I even discovered areas where healing was yet needed, I met the love of my life, got promoted at my job with a raise, finished setting up my business website, published my 3rd book: The Set Goals & Slay Workbook, and I completed a 6 month mentorship program. Now, I AM preparing and expecting 2021 to be a year of results. But, those results will only come IF I build off of what I started and what I’ve learned in 2020. 2020 was necessary.

2020 was a lot of things.. But, one thing we can sum it up to be, is an eye-opener. It opened our eyes and enhanced our awareness of reality, pre-existing issues, our purpose and our ability to pivot and adjust. Also, our ability to persevere no matter how great the challenges are that we face. That IS your superpower. Lean in and embrace it. Reflect on what 2020 has shown you, use what you’ve learned and then keep going!

Practical Tips for Manifesting Your Dreams and Achieving Your Goals

The New Year and the New Decade we’ve all been anticipating is finally here. I don’t know about you, but I feel like God, the creator of our universe has gifted us with a fresh start; a new opportunity to manifest our dreams and achieve our goals. Some of the things that we’d hoped we’d accomplish in 2019 didn’t get done, for one reason or another. But, today, I encourage you to shift your focus onto this present moment . There’s nothing you can do about the past, but you can do a whole lot about your future. You are creating your future now, in the moment you have right here, right now!

As we begin to shift our focus onto this amazing opportunity we have NOW to create our ideal futures, I want to share with you a few tips that will help you manifest your dreams and achieve your goals in 2020.

If you like these tips, I invite you to subscribe, because over the next few months, I will be highlighting these tips & breaking them down even further! Let’s get ready to slay some goals.

Practical Tips for Manifesting Your Dreams & Achieving Your Goals

In no particular order..

  • Act as if you already have it
  • Visualize
  • Meditate before bed and when you awake in the morning
  • Write and speak your goals daily
  • Listen to affirmations as you sleep
  • Keep a gratitude journal
  • Script in a manifestation journal
  • Surround yourself with and learn from people who are already where you want to be
  • Use a vision board or vision book
  • Set goal that are in alignment with your ideal lifestyle
  • Set goals, break them down into small steps, create a plan and THEN take action
  • Set goals that YOU want to achieve NOT goals that sound good or that someone else thinks you should pursue
  • Pursue your goals with passion or not at all
  • Dream car? Take it for test drive and get a picture with you sitting in it and add the picture to your vision board or as a screensaver on your phone.
  • Don’t have a vision board or always on the go? Try this. Have the screensaver on your cellphone, desktop or laptop rotate between photos of things that would be on your vision board. This is a great alternative to having a vision board, because it will be in front of you ALL the time right?
  • Dream house? Take a tour of your dream home, even if you’re not ready to buy yet and take a picture standing in front or inside of it. Add it to your vision board, vision book or save it as your screensaver.
  • Be mindful of your mindset. More specifically; the thoughts you think and the words you speak. Positive vibes only! Here’s a trick: When you catch yourself saying “I can’t” or “I don’t have..” Do this: 1) Stop yourself mid-sentence or as soon as you become aware OR 2) Correct yourself mid-sentence simply by adding “yet” at the end. For example, “I don’t have enough money.. yet!” Remember, the words you speak are just as important as the thoughts you think and the actions you take when manifesting your dreams!

Manifest is defined as clearly shown or visible. 2020 is the year for your goals & dreams to be clear shown or visible. This is the year to manifest.

I entered 2020 knowing my word of the year was going to be MANIFEST. On New Years Eve, I attended a church service and guess what happened? The pastor preached a sermon stating that 2020 is the year for Reaping! My goodness, if that didn’t make me want to jump out of my seat and run a few laps around the building.. Listen, that was all the confirmation I needed. If this is the year of reaping, then that means that 2020 is the year to see results – clearly shown or visible. This is the year to manifest! However, you can only REAP what you have sown! You can only manifest BY investing in yourself and in your future. You can only manifest by putting in the work necessary to reap the benefits.

This is your year my friend, to manifest your dream and to achieve some goals! If you have a clear vision and are ready to take action, then the tips I have shared above with HELP you MANIFEST! But remember, you’ll only reap what you sow!

Happy Manifesting!
