Goal Success Challenge: Day 7 – Identify & Create Positive Reinforcement

Welcome to Day 7 of the Goal Success Challenge!

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.

Examples:

– 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!?

7 Day Goal Success Challenge: Day 5 – Identify Your Why

Welcome to Day 5 of our Goal Success Challenge!

Today is all about identifying your WHY factor!

This will be the foundation of your goal. Every action step you take should be in alignment with your WHY factor. By identifying your WHY, you are identifying the core reason WHY you want to set, pursue and achieve your goal. Ask yourself the following questions:


* Who do I want to achieve my goal for?

* What will happen when I achieve my goal?

* Who will my achievement benefit and how?

*Why do I want to achieve this goal?

Knowing your WHY is a game changer! Many people give up on their goals because they haven’t set the right kind of goals. Meaning; they did not set a goal that is in alignment with their WHY factor. Your WHY is the driving force behind why you START & WHY you Keep going! Take time to Identify your why by asking yourself the questions above.

7 Day Goal Success Challenge: Day 4 – Create an Action Plan

Welcome to Day 4 of our Goal Success Challenge!

Today is all about creating a plan of action!

To create your action plan, you’ll want to break down your goal into small action steps. Break it down into as many steps as possible. For each step, identify any limitation or limiting beliefs that you can think of. Then, for each limitation and limiting belief identify a possible solution (Plan B, C, D, etc.) or alternative. Set a date for each step if possible.

When you create your plan, approach it with the mindset of “flexibility.” The purpose of setting a date is to hold yourself accountable and serves as a way to track your progress. However, don’t be too hard on yourself, if circumstances arise that cause you to extend the date. Leave yourself a little wiggle room. We’re only human, things happen. The fact that you are identifying possible limitations and limiting beliefs and creating solutions or alternatives for them upfront is setting you up for success. You are giving yourself a much better shot at achieving your goal vs someone who will set a new year resolution and has no game plan at all. The benefit of having a flexible approach is that you can adjust and adapt as needed. Individuals who fail to do so, are more likely to give up on the pursuit of their goals.

7 Day Goal Success Challenge: Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of our Goal Success Challenge!

Today is all about Identify what you want. And more specifically, getting clear about what you need to do to GET or MANIFEST what you want.

Reflect back to your visualization exercise and identify the following:

  • What was a key part of your life that made it your dream life?
  • What goal did you accomplish in order for that to become your dream life?

In step one, we completed a visualization exercise that allowed us to take a look at the big picture. Step two is where we begin to zoom in and take a look at what goal(s) we need to take to get to the big picture. This is a necessary step to take before we even begin to set our goals. Let’s build the foundation first, by getting really clear about what we want and what we need to do to get there.

Come back for Day 3 as we cover the 3rd step on our Goal Success Checklist. If you haven’t already, be sure to grab your checklist & the Set Goals & Slay Workbook + Planner below!

7 Day Goal Success Challenge: Day 1

Thank you for joining the 7 Day Challenge, where we are positioning ourselves for success in 2020!

This challenge is all about getting clear about what we want, setting strategic goals & creating an action plan that will give us our best shot at achieving our goal!

We don’t have to set goals and give up on them half way through. Many people set goals in January and by March, they’ve already given up on them. Maybe that was your story in 2019, but 2020 does not have to be a repeat.

Take the next seven days to get clear, get focused, to get motivated and prepared to slay some goals! Take a look at today’s video and grab your 7 Step Strategy Checklist & the Set Goals & Slay Workbook if you haven’t already!

Visualize what your life looks like AS IF you already have achieved or attained what you desire. Practice visualization through meditation, journaling or scripting (journaling in the present tense as if you HAVE IT now). While you visualize; ask yourself: How does it feel? What do I see? What do I hear, taste or smell? Tap in and connect with what you desire. Try to feel the emotions AS IF you already have it. As if IT IS already yours!
