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!

7 Day Goal Success Challenge: Day 6 – Identify Motivating Factors

Welcome to Day 6 of the Goal Succeess Challenge!

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:

Vision Board

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.

Journals

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!

Vision Book

More Ideas:

  • Abundance Wall (Write yourself a check!)
  • Calendar/Planner
  • Habit Tracker Apps

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.

Come back for Day 7 as we cover the final step on our Goal Success Checklist. If you haven’t already, be sure to grab your checklist & the Set Goals & Slay Workbook + Planner below!

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 Know If 2020 Will Be Your Year

You said 2019 Was Your Year.. 2019 was the year you would finally pursue your goal(s) and manifest your dreams! This was the year things would finally fall into place for you, because surely, after watching others surrounding you win in various areas of their lives, it was only a matter of time, before you became a person to envy. Soo, what happened? As you reflect on this year, are you satisfied with the outcome? Did you achieve the goals you set out to achieve?

Many of you did not achieve your goals this year. Many of you were convinced 2019 would be your year, but things did not turn out that way, so now you’re thinking it wasn’t your year after all. But, what I want you to know is that 2019 WAS your year! 2018, 2010, 2020.. all the years past, in between and to come, was and will be YOUR year. The truth is, it will always be your year, as long as you do what you need to do. I know how vague that sounds, you’re wanting to know what is it you’re supposed to do and I’ll tell you. Something different! Yes, you read that right. You must do something different. If 2019 did not go how you wanted it to go, then you should not walk into 2020 doing the same things, the same way.

If you want to experience a different result, you’ve got to do something different. Either try something new or do something differently. As long as you are alive and well, there is opportunity all around you! Opportunity, for you to pursue your goals, live your dream and to live your life operating in your God given purpose. But, you have to take action. And, if the actions you took last year didn’t get you to where you wanted to be come year end, then you’ve got to switch it up! If you stayed in your comfort zone, you’ve got to do something that takes you outside of your comfort zone. Often times, what we desire is outside of our comfort zone. So, my question to you is, do you want what you desire bad enough? Do you want it bad enough, that you’re willing to step outside of your comfort zone in order to get it? If the answer is yes, then your decisions thereafter should align with what you desire. Your answer to that question determines whether or not 2020 will be your year.

2020 is YOUR year IF you are willing to step outside of your comfort zone. 2020 is YOUR year IF you are willing to do something different. 2020 is YOUR year IF you set the right kind of goals, with a strategic plan of action and with accountability factors in place. 2020 is YOUR year if you identify and conquer limitations and limiting beliefs. 2020 is YOUR year, if you have identified YOUR WHY factor. Your WHY factor will keep you motivated, no matter how challenging the pursuit of your dream becomes. Motivation is temporary, but your WHY is what will remain. 2019 was your year. And, 2020 will be your year IF you are willing to make decisions that are in alignment with your purpose. You were created for a purpose and you deserve to be happy. If what you did in 2019 did not allow you to operate in your purpose or cause you to be happy.. Do something different. It sounds simple enough, but it’s not. But, what it comes down to, is making a conscious decision NOT to repeat what you did in 2019 if it did not result in you achieving what you wanted to achieve. You don’t have to have it all figured out, but you must be willing will to take strategic action.
