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 💋

Welcome to September ‼️
As we end of this quarter and start to embrace the holidays, New Year, family and career obligations, business and goal setting, the question that constantly comes up is “Does Work Life balance truly exist ❓❓”
We all have the same 24 hours in a day. The truth is how much of it are you spending doing what fulfills you.
When you are running 🏃🏽♀️ around chasing priorities you:
1. Don’t get much accomplished ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Feel more overwhelmed and frustrated
3. Beat up on yourself for not getting things done.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The one thing you should understand is that everything your juggling is important. The problem is, when you juggle too many things what ultimately happens is that you start to drop a ball or two as you keep adding more priorities.
The goal is to stop juggling and start managing your tasks.
No more will your tasks manage you!!
Here are 2 simple steps to managing tasks and achieving a sense of fulfillment.
1. Set priorities and rank them in order of importance.
2. Identify what needs to be done immediately, within the next 7 days and what can wait a bit.⠀⠀
3. Use a calendar to schedule and map out your priorities that need to be accomplished that week and month. Make sure that the times you set are are non-negotiable.⠀⠀
4. Highlight, check-off and celebrate each small win you accomplish. These small wins ultimately leads to big goals and you will feel a sense of accomplishment. ⠀⠀⠀
These steps can help to ensure that you focus on completing the most pertinent tasks, as opposed to placing your time and attention on tasks that can wait.
Prioritize your task list this week and see how much you will get accomplished!
Until Next Time
We are beginning the 3rd quarter of 2019.
My time is flying …….
Are you still tracking your progress?
Are you on target for your 2019 goals?
Half of the year is officially gone but there is still time for you to get back on target.
Here are 2 questions you should be asking yourself to evaluate if your on track :
1. Are you meeting your daily, weekly and/or monthly goals?
Its time to go back to your goals and review what you had set to accomplish by this time. Don’t worry if you’re not on target, at least you are aware of where you stand.
Don’t be too hard on yourself either, life happens and sometimes life can throw us off track. The key is to get up and get back on track. Start small and start with your weekly goals. This can help you establish what you need to focus on this week in order to get back on track.
Next check out your monthly goals and press restart. Change the dates realistically and reschedule your dates throughout the rest of this year.
Don’t give up on your goal because you feel off track just keep going. For example, if your goal was to lose 10 pounds by June and you were supposed to workout 3 x a week to accomplish this, then begin working your weekly goal this week and reschedule that goal for your 10 pound loss for July.
2. What 2 things do you need to change to bring the results you need?
Think about what caused you to fall off track and what do you need to put in place to remain off track. It could be accountability. Accountability can be in many different ways. Depending upon your goal, you can have an accountability partner, hire a coach or mentor, set alarms in your phone, create daily and weekly task lists etc. There are many different tips and tricks to help you stay focused.
Identify what 2 things you need to do or put in place in order to remain successful with your goals and DO IT!
These two questions will allow you to self-reflect, evaluate where you are and identify what you need to move forward successfully in completing your goals. It also identifies any weaknesses that you need to address in order to be successful. There is nothing wrong with re-strategizing and starting all over. Learn from your mistakes and keep pressing forward.
2019 is halfway gone and just like that 2020 will be here. Do not let your 2019 goals be the same for 2020.
You have the tools. Get it Done!!
March🌸 is here!
This is last month of the first quarter of 2019 plus its “Women’s” Month! 💃🏾
Ladies it is time to represent!
Time to go after those goals, make that impact, change some lives and your pockets.
Ladies, use this season to re-valuate your goals, your action steps, analyze what’s going great and think about what you need to stop doing that’s not working.
Take some time over this week to re-strategize and implement tips for a successful 1st quarter.
Success is what you define it to be whether it’s growing your following, hitting your financial goal, impacting a set number of people, etc.
Whatever you define as your success- make it happen!
Close out this first quarter with a bang 💥 and don’t forget to plan some time to celebrate 🎉 as well.
