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.

Behind every successful woman is a sister friend or circle that support and pushes her to be her best. Oprah has Gail, Kelly Rowland & Beyonce, La La & Kim Kardashian to name few. Either way they all have their sister circle.
As an introvert I love keeping to myself so sisterhood is foreign to me. I keep a handful of people close to me.
I would prefer to sit in a corner listening to my favorite book or just sit quietly at a function observing before networking or jumping into anything. I love keeping to myself. Let me know if i am by myself with this one.Don’t get me wrong, I love to have fun and party but when I’m in a comfortable setting.
I am starting to believe that this whole introvert thing is a means to accept the term and remain comfortable? This i will address another day but overtime I learned that this is not the way to grow and succeed.
When women come together to support and empower other women, something magical happens. You need quality relationships, accountability and people that will keep you in check. You need that sisterhood that will force you out of the corner and out of your comfort zone. Those sisters that will ask you “Why haven’t you started that thing yet?” Sisters that listen to you, accept you as you are, see you as who you are becoming, don’t hold you back or get jealous of you, support you in your mission, and celebrate you. Your sisterhood should empower you.
Heck Women Understand Women!
Oftentimes with entrepreneurship, it can get a bit lonely especially when former friends are not on the same journey as you. It is always great to have like minds and folks of different experiences able to pour into you and guide you available to you. So all my introverted ladies that’s stepping outside their comfort zones to network, build relationships, businesses, tribes and pour into others reach out and send a text to your tribe letting them know how much you appreciate them.
For those that are searching for a tribe there are 2 things you can do:
1. Search Facebook Groups with similar interests and join them. Comment, make connections, friend requests and contribute to the group.
2. Create a tribe of your own. I am certain that there are many women out there looking for a tribe, start your own.
If we truly expect to rise to the levels of success we want, we must come together.

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.
