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.
As a certified life, solution-focused and Goal Success Coach, I’m on a mission to empower millennial women to clarify, set & slay their goals! I am now offering Goal Success Strategy sessions where I will help you create a strategic strategy to slay your 2020 goal(s). For more info or to book your discovery call, click HERE.
Another way that I am empowering individuals to clarify, set & slay their goals, is to share tips & strategies to help you do just that.
Yesterday I shared a tip on my social media pages that I will share with you now.
If you want to set yourself apart from the masses and achieve your goal; I encourage you to start here. Start by developing a habit of writing out your goals daily. What I’m sharing with you, is something that I do. Every day! And, I’m telling you, when I first began doing this, about 3 years ago, it wasn’t long before my mindset began to SHIFT & I began to see RESULTS! If that’s what you want to see clearly in 2020, start here!
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.
The benefit of writing your goals daily is that it helps keep you focused, motivated and accountable.
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!
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.
– 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!?
Today is all about identifying your motivating factors.
This is not that same concept as your WHY factor. This is where you will identify which specific tools will motivate you.
Your motivating factors should remind you of and reinforce your WHY factor.
Remember, your WHY factor is simply your core reason for pursuing your goal – which should be significant enough to motivate you to keep going, even when the going gets tough.
Your motivating factor(s) are going to be something tangible that will REMIND you of your WHY factor.
There are many things you can use as motivating factors! Here are a few examples I use:
I have 2 vision boards. The one above sits on my dresser directly across from my bed. I usually do my meditations before I go to sleep at night, so its nice having my vision board right there to look at when I’m having difficulty focusing my wandering thoughts.
My best advice would be to place your vision board in a place where you’ll see it the most often! I’m away from home most of the time, but when I’m home, I’m in my office or bedroom the most. So, I have my 1 – 5 yr vision board in my office area and my 1yr vision board in my bedroom.
I have 3 journals. One, I use for scripting (writing your goals and dreams in presentense, as if is happening in that moment or already has happened!
The 2nd journal is my Gratitude journal.
The 3rd journal I use for writing out my goals. So, back in December of 2016, I attended a 3 day workshop called Publish a Book and Grow Rich! I learned a lot about writing and publishing a book, but I also learned a lot about mindset transformation and manifestation. One of the things I learned, I’ve been doing ever since the day I learned it.. Writing out my goals in the form of “I am” and “I have.” As, it was taught to me, we’re writing out our captains orders “captian & crew. The idea behind that, in short, is tht the act of writing out your goals is your concious mind (the captain) giving direction to your subconscious mind (the crew). Your subconscious mind is what you can call your “higher-self” … but, more on that another time.
A few tips for writing out your goals:
* Hand write your goals daily.
* It’s okay if you miss a day(s) in betweeen. Just get back to it when you can. Keep in mind that consistency is key.
* Record the date each time you write out your goals. It’s a simple way to hold yourself accountable.
* Use a journal thats small enough to fit in your purse or to carry with you on the go. If you’re like me, it’s easy to use business as an excuse – keeping it with eliminates the excuse and allows you to get it in when you can.
* Read them out loud with emotion!

The purpose of identifying motivating factors is to help you stay focused on your WHAT (goal) & your WHY(the reason why you want to achieve your goal). As you can see, I use many different things to reinforce my WHY factor. I encourage you to use 1 or as many as you feel you need. I have found these to be helpful, especially when I’m in traffic… I pull out my vision book and remind myself that even being stuck in traffic is a necessary “unfortunate” but necessary part of the process. And, then I pull out my gratitude journal and jot down a few things that I’m grateful for. When pursuing your goals and manifesting your dreams, it’s important to maintain a positive mindset as much as possible.
