3 ways to get CLEAR on your goals so that you can REACH your goals

3 ways to get CLEAR on your goals so that you can REACH your goals
We all set goals and we all have fallen short of reaching them. Not all of the time, but sometimes. So, I am here to give you 3 tips to reaching those goals. I feel like a lot of reasons that I don't seem to finish to the end is because I don't have good answers for the reasons listed below.  Take a quick read and see how evaluating these 3 things can help you succeed and crush those goals.

When setting your goals you need to ask yourself:

Why are you doing this? The WHY is the most important thing to ask yourself. If you do not know why you are trying to reach that goal then you are going to be less likely to put full effort into reaching it. You will get lost along the way and unmotivated and it will increase your chances of not succeeding. So, figure out WHY and even write it down on a sticky note and put it on your mirror to see every day or set a reminder on your calendar as a daily tool to keep you on track with remembering why you are doing what you are doing.  Go deep on this topic.  Your reason why needs to be powerful enough that you never give up until you reach your goal.

Who are you doing this for? The importance of this question can make or break your goals. If you don't know who you are doing it for then things like resentment, lack of motivation and resistance can interrupt your progress. Figure out WHO you are doing it for and then remind yourself along the way, how great they will feel when you meet that goal. Who you are doing it for feeds your excitement, your drive and your willingness to continue until you reach your goal. Keep focused on who you are helping and why it will make an impact in their lives and you will be successful at reaching it. That includes goals that you set for yourself. You deserve to reward yourself with accomplishing it just as much as doing it  for someone else that it will benefit.

Visualize meeting your goal, what does that look like? Visualizing the end result can help drive you towards it.  Sometimes when we lose motivation along the way and all it takes is a visual. to spark things back up.   If your goal is to lose weight then you picture a skinnier healthier person. If you goal is to save up to buy a new car then your visual is you driving around a new car. If you have a goal to sell a certain amount of books then your visual is seeing how many lives you can positively impact and picture that group of people in your mind and watch that group grow. Whatever your goal is, you need to visualize the end impact and what it looks like because that will help you see why you can't give up. 

Answer these questions and crush those goals!

3 reasons why to NOT wait until next year to start your goals!

3 reasons why to NOT wait until next year to start your goals!
Ok, we all know that people do the New Year Resolution game. I have 3 reasons that you should NOT wait until the new year to set new goals.  These are important things to think about even in our every day lives! Why wait? Do it NOW.

1. Why not NOW? Give me a good reason as to why you wouldn't want to start now? Yes, it is the holidays and we are busy and maybe your goal is a diet so all of the food will be tempting BUT if you start now think of how much easier it will be for you. Example, you say to heck with it, I will start my diet after the holidays. During the holidays you gain 10 pounds. Well that is 10 pounds farther away from the goal you will set on New Year's so why not think of things NOW to make you one step closer to that goal in January?  It isn't as hard as you think. Don't over indulge, drink lots of water, and make sure you watch your portions.  Things to ponder...I would rather tackle losing 25 lbs rather than 35lbs.

2. Waiting lists can happen.  Maybe you have been putting off going to the doctor because, well, this year is shot anyway so you might as well just bag it. NO. What if I told you that if you started the process of being seen NOW then you would be closer to your end goal of figuring out what your ailments are. What if they need to refer you to a specialist and that specialist has you on a 3 month waiting list?  If you get on that list NOW then in January you will be half way down the list to be seen! 

3. Life happens. Life can definitely surprise us and we never know what will happen in the future. Start working towards your goals now so that if there are any in set backs then you won't get delayed all of the way. We always have excuses and we always have unexpected things come up in our lives so lets just get things rolling now. I don't want to say I am starting a 2021 new years resolution just to have life happen and me not be able to accomplish my goals come January. 

Start working on your goals NOW!! Want a new job next year? Start planning now, want to take a nice vacation? Start saving up NOW. Want to invest in something? Start researching NOW. 

Want to better  your health and learn to be your own advocate? START NOW!

Change your mindset! Get rid of daily negativity with these 3 steps

Change your mindset!  Get rid of daily negativity with these 3 steps
1. Start your morning with GRATITUDE!   It is truly amazing how waking up and being grateful can change your day completely.  You know how easy it is to be negative.  You wake up to dogs barking, your husband blaring his morning music, the long list of items you know you need to get done and you just start your day being edgy. No one "wants" to be in a bad mood. So change it! Yes it is that easy. Not without some work though. Just like getting on a diet plan or working out, it takes consistency but when you realize that you can train your brain to see the good in things and be grateful for life and everything in your life then you can start your day with gratitude! Example, I am so lucky to have those dogs that I absolutely love with all my heart that alert me when danger may be near, I am so blessed that my husband is still here to sing and blare his music after his accident last year, and I am overly blessed at the to do list because the outcome of finishing the list is going to be EPIC!  Sounds silly but once you train your mind to find the positive things and have gratitude then the negative will fade away.

2.  Find YOUR HAPPINESS! What makes YOU happy. Is it enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning on the patio before everyone wakes up, is it pulling into your dream job, or is it your hobby? Do you have a hobby?  I recommend that everyone know what makes themselves truly happy. Not what makes your children happy, what makes your husband happy or your employer, but what truly makes you smile and your soul shine. If you do not know what makes you happy then you seriously need to take the time to figure this out. Do some soul searching and find your inner happiness and use it to create a newer brighter future.  Even if it is unattainable in your current situation like going out and buying some horses lol  There are other ways to enjoy your hobby or to create your own happiness without jumping way past your comfort zone or financial situation. Start by bringing that happiness into your life.  They don't tell you to make a dream board for nothing. Start bringing more and more of what makes you happy into your life! Like horses as an example. Start watching horse videos, following pages on social media that offers that fulfillment of your hobby.  Even if your hobby is reading an intriguing book. Find a way to incorporate that into your life so much that when someone says "what makes you happy?" you know the answer and don't stutter. Find YOUR happiness and the negative lifestyle will fade away.

3. Reach your GOALS!  I am sure you are thinking that you set goals all the time. Yes, you probably do but do you reach them? Do you actually do the work that it takes to get to the end zone?  Do you even try to reach them? Think about this for a minute, most people dream up goals but never finish the work to reach the end zone.  They say I would love to someday work from home, or I would love to have more family time someday, or I would love to travel more (well maybe not in this 2020 age of the virus) but you get the drift. Saying it is not doing it.  Lets take the work from home theory. If that is what you want then have you investigated companies that allow it? Have you researched business advisors that can help you attain it? How about reaching out to other people that work from home to see what they are doing, have you done that? Or is it just a comment that flows through your lips and never has backup action to allow you the possibility of conquering it.  I decided I wanted to be home more for my teenage daughter, I decided I wanted to make a good living to provide for her and her future, and guess what? I am doing that! Research-check  Reaching out to employers that have stay at home business opportunities-check  Setting up a future business for/with my daughter-check  Business advisor to get your stay at home business to the top-check.  What have you done to reach your goal? Once you reach it there is an undeniable happiness that soothes your soul and strips the negativity away.

So what have you learned here today? Start your mornings with GRATITUDE, find YOUR HAPPINESS, and start REACHING YOUR GOALS!  Do not allow negative thoughts to creep in. Take ACTION on the above and you will see a difference!

You can message me if you need some mindset guidance or maybe some essential oils to help you on this new journey. I want you all to be as happy as I am and I will gladly help you through.
