My Personal Lesson in Goal-setting!

Why You Should Consider Changing Your Plan and Not Changing Your Goal?

Have you ever decided to stop pursuing your dreams because the plan you had didn’t work?

Well, I’m here to tell you that most times things do not go according to plan and yet you can still have a great outcome and even accomplish your goal?

I will never forget when I became pregnant my senior year of high school. I received my college acceptance letter to go away to school for nursing and boy I was excited until I looked down at my moving belly. The first thing I thought about was I can never become a nurse now.  I truly contemplated changing my goal of becoming a nurse and I started thinking about what else can I do. I decided to go to school to become a medical assistant. I figured this will start getting me the exposure I needed.

I ended up working at a local hospital as a temp in the file room and they hired me full-time making $33,000  year at 21 doing registration. That was good money to pay for daycare and more. The goal of becoming a nurse became more real to me and I revisited and revised my plan. I was able to start school part-time and eventually left and went to school full-time to complete my nursing degree. At this young age throughout all my trials and obstacles I didn’t give up on my goal.  Although it took me an extra 2 years to get started, I accomplished my goal by simply being open to revise my plan and not change my ultimate goal.

This has constantly been a reminder for me anytime things do not go according to plan to simply change my plan and not the goal. I continue to face this in life, business, personal and more but I remembered how overcame as a teen mom and if I can do it then I can definitely do it again over and over now.

What goal have you given up on because things didn’t according to plan?

Use this new decade to devise a whole new plan and execute.

This is the year of implementation.

New Month, New Game plan!

November Goals

Happy November!

It’s a New Month!

My favorite season is fall and it’s a great opportunity to shed some things and make some changes. 🍁 .

I struggled the last quarter with my time management. I realized that in order to ensure that I finish this quarter strong and have great momentum heading into the New Year, that It will take me changing some habits and creating new ones.

I made up my mind that today will be my New Year.

This is the perfect time to start over.

Ain’t nothing like a good ol’ reset!

One thing you can do to start the process of a reset is to take a day to disconnect from social media. Use this time to really be intentional about  meditating and listening for your next moves. Often times the different things we see on social media tend to cloud our vision and create confusion. We start to think we should be doing what others are doing. This is one  great way to reset and get clarity.

As seasons change understand that there are also seasons in your relationships, business, ministry, career etc.

For this season, you are embarking on something new. Make the change, shed and say NO to some things,  reset and adjust your clock ⏰ this season.

It will be your best ever. . . . .

Until Next Time 💋

The Three Things That Highly Successful People Do To Push Past Limiting Beliefs and Manifest Success.

Have you just recently launched a business or tired of your daily 9-5 routine?

Looking to do something different but are afraid you may fail?

Are you unsure about whether or not you have what it takes to be successful?

If your fear of the unknown is holding you back from going full speed ahead and working towards creating the business and/or life of your dreams then you need to continue reading. There are 3 things that highly successful people do in order to push past their self-defeating thoughts and manifest success.

Here they are:

Prepare Yourself Mentally for Obstacles:

Obstacles are inevitable in life and business so therefore you should expect them. Once you understand that there are seasons in life and business you can prepare yourself mentally to embrace them. So when the time comes and you hit an obstacle, don’t panic, instead, ride it out, absorb the lessons, and move forward. This is not an opportunity to quit!

See Opportunities—Not Challenges: Many people see challenges and freeze with fear. The successful don’t see challenges, but instead look for opportunities. In every lesson there is an opportunity to learn, grow and become better. Be like the successful and look for the opportunities in all challenges. Its all about perspective!

Find a Good Mentor or Coach – One good way to find out  how to be successful is to get advice from a great mentor or coach. This person could be your boss, a co-worker or a professional that is highly successful. Find at least one person that is a few steps ahead of you and learn from them. You can have a paid coach, a virtual or real life mentor who you can reach out to. I have many virtual mentors online that i follow and get great tips from. The goal is to use you mentor and coach to help avoid common learning curves and therefore provide a shortcut to success.

Its time for you to take that leap and understand that it won’t always be perfect but it will be well worth it.

Until Next Time 💋
