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!

How to Get Unstuck

Have you ever felt stuck in multiple OR every area of your life ALL at once?

At the beginning of 2019 I set my goals and I was determined to slay each and every of them! And you know what, I started off strong. First 3 months, I was killing it. April came, and I began to lose momentum. May came I began to feel stuck, but kept pushing! And, then June came and well, I’ve just been feeling plain stuck, in every area of my life. Now, if that is not discouraging, I don’t know what is.

Now, there are a variety of things you can do to help you get unstuck. You can exercise, meditate, take a vacation, journal, etc. All of those things can be helpful in getting unstuck. But, what I want to share with you today is that “feeling stuck” is like a symptom to a bigger problem. So, think of the above examples as ways to treat the symptom and what I am about to share with you as a way to treat the root of the issue!

1) You’re feeling stuck. And, that’s okay. Everyone experiences this at some point in their life. The first thing I want you to realize, is that feeling stuck, is just that. It is a feeling. It is not an accurate indication of where you actually are. If you’ve been making moves, putting in work, taking actions steps to achieve your goals, then you are not stuck. Even if you’ve just been going round and round in circles. No matter how it feels, you are not stuck!

2) Okay, so you’re probably thinking, if I’m not stuck then, where am I? You are in transition. You are in unfamiliar territory. You are in route. Regardless of where you are, you are not where you began and if you’re feeling stuck, then you’re likely not where you desire to be. So, you need to make sure that you have a clear vision of where you would like to be. To do this, I would suggest meditation to clear your mind and a visualization exercise to get a clear picture of where you want to be.

3) After you’ve taken time to identify and clarify where you want to be, then it is time to re-create the plan. If you have set goals without an action plan, that could be a reason why you are feeling stuck. If you have a plan, but are struggling to execute the steps along the way, that could be why you are feeling stuck. So, I need you to know that it is okay to stop and re-calibrate. It is okay to re-adjust, to re-create the plan and to align. Go back and see what is not working, why it is not working and try something else! What you do today should be in alignment with what you desire to manifest tomorrow.

4) Do something different. If you keep doing what you’ve always done, chances are, you will continue to generate the same results. The point of re-creating your plan, is to ensure that you do something different. Take a risk. Step outside of your comfort zone. Stop waiting for a perfect time or to feel a certain way and just go for it!

5) Be consistent. Remember that feeling stuck is just a “feeling.” You won’t feel that way forever. Keep moving in the direction of your dreams, and eventually you will get there. And, remember this: Everything is not always as it appears to be on the surface, and if the challenges are increasing, then you’re probably closer than you think!

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.

How to Get Unstuck: Successfully Pursue and Achieve your Goals!

How to get Unstuck_

Did you make a resolution or set a goal(s) at the beginning of the year? If so, where are you now? Are you currently working towards your goal or have you already thrown in the towel? According to research,Β 80% of New Years resolutions fall through by February! Why is that?

Let’s be real, most goals come with its own set of challenges. It can be an uphill battle. But, I will tell you this.. The difference between those who successfully reach their goal and those who do not, is their mindset! They’re mindset is different. Different how? Glad you asked. I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, β€œmindset is everything” countless times already. So much so, that it’s probably just another cliché’ to you. But, many cliché’s hold a whole lot of truth. As does this one. Your mindset determines whether or not you will be successful in life or not. A lot of times we place the blame, for our lack of success or consistency on luck, circumstances or other people. But, the truth is, we have more control than most realize. You have more control over your results/outcome than you realize.Β  People and circumstances, both the good, bad and the ugly, only have the power to influence. Influence what exactly? Our actions or inaction. How we react to the people and things that happen in our lives is what defines us. It’s not the event that defines who we are; it’s our reaction to it that defines who we are and determines our success or failure.

If you have found yourself giving up and throwing in the towel, when it comes to accomplishing your goals, then you may agree that you got stuck along the way. It’s not that the desire to reach that goal has dissipated. It’s just that life happened and influenced your inaction. Your inaction is a direct effect of your mindset. Β In my new book, Empower You, I talk a lot about developing a positive, success mindset. This kind of mindset is the kind of mindset that will enable you to keep going, despite a lack of motivation, a lack of support, etc. If you’d like to learn more about developing a success mindset that will help you successfully pursue your goals, then I invite you to grab your copy of my book! Just click HERE.

I am sure that you set your goal for a reason. So, if you’ve temporarily put the pursuit of your goal on hold, then I encourage you to learn how to get unstuck! Too many people have lived and died, without going after their dreams. And, I am certain that a good amount of those individuals did not have a positive, success mindset and likely gave up when they got stuck , assuming that they tried at all. I’m just saying. With all that being said, I don’t want you to ever feel like you won’t ever be able to reach your goals because you feel stuck. Understand that pursuing your goal is a process. And, depending on the goal, it likely won’t happen overnight. Feeling stuck is a part of the process. Your success is dependent on your ability to overcome setbacks, overwhelm and feelings like feeling stuck! Here are 3 things that you can do to get unstuck!

Embrace Where You Are (1)

1) Unwind. Take time to relax and unwind. Do something that is unrelated to your goals and dreams, but is something that you thoroughly enjoy. Go on a staycation or vacation if possible. Do something or go somewhere that will allow for a change of scenery. I suggest doing this, because often times, getting a change of scenery and a change of pace can help to de-clutter your mind and relax mentally and emotionally. Relax your body and your mind should begin to relax as well. Try yoga, meditation or prayer. Try detoxing or going on a fast or cleanse. Sometimes, giving your physical body rest and re-boot can have a direct effect on your mentality as well. Put yourself in position to start fresh.

Embrace Where You Are

2) Embrace where you are. Be honest with yourself about where you stand in the pursuit of your goals. Take full responsibility for your actions or inaction. Acknowledge the problem or mistake. Instead of placing the blame on other people and circumstances, shine the light on yourself. Instead of deflecting and avoiding your reality and what it is that you really want to have or where you desire to be, face it. Embrace every experience that has led you to this moment in time, right here, right now. Accept it for what it is. A learning opportunity. Make up in your mind that you are going to move forward. Decide that you are going to keep going!

Embrace Where You Are (2)

3) Shift your perspective. As mentioned before, mindset is everything! Your mindset is the sum of your attitude/beliefs about something or someone. How do you perceive your goal and your ability to pursue and accomplish that goal? If you are feeling like your goal is difficult to reach, then I suggest a do-over. Go back and re-write that goal and ensure that you have constructed a SMART goal. A SMART goal is specific, measurable, achievable, relevant or realistic and trackable!

It’s okay to feel stuck. It is a part of the process. It is common. But, it is up to you to decide not to stay there. Getting stuck is often inevitable, but staying stuck is a choice! You have more control, more say-so in the matter than you may have realized initially. No one can pursue your dream for you. Don’t give people or circumstances more power over your goals and dreams than they really have. They only have as much power as you allow them to have. Really, they only have the power to influence your action or inaction.

Take back your power! Don’t stay stuck! Take action!
