The One Thing I Wish I Knew 5 Years Ago

December 5, 2018

We're finally in the month of December! 

Yesterday was my wedding anniversary so I spent a whole 24 hours partying like a rock star! Now I feel refreshed (mentally), hungry and physically tired. I want to catch up on sleep, but we both know THAT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN so I'm pressing on lol! With only 4 weeks left of this year I'm getting ready to jump into the new year with some sass and class, do you hear me?! Haha, *wink*. I am so excited! How are you feeling today?

As I started thinking about some lessons I learned this year like how to create opportunities for myself and how to be impactful while being authentic I also considered the various challenges within each lesson. As I reflected on the incredible amount of personal development I experienced, I had to wonder why on earth it took me so long to get started.

I quickly realized that I was my biggest stumbling block. I was literally stopping myself and standing in my own way. Without any awareness, I was slowing down my progress by subconsciously doubting my skills and abilities. Of course, I would encourage myself and continually say that "I can do anything", but at the same time, I would talk myself out of what I really wanted and eventually convinced myself that getting a paycheque was more important than pursuing something that may not work out.

Have you ever done that? Put your dreams on hold so that you could meet the immediate demands of life. Well, how did that work out for you? Are you still in that rat race?

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly
trying to make you something else 
is the greatest accomplishment"
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I held myself back for YEARS because I did not BELIEVE in myself. All the positive affirmations in the world did not change the fact that I didn't actually believe that I could do what I was dreaming about. Having a positive mindset is only one piece of the puzzle. For you to crush any goal you have to:

1. Believe that your goal is possible.
2. Believe in yourself
3. Go for it.

Without any action, positive self-talk gets you nowhere. Notice that I said it GETS you nowhere. Not that it's not good for you or you should stop doing it, but it literally doesn't get your feet moving out of your comfort zone. You have to physically begin to move, conquer your obstacles and get your dream off the ground. Achieving a goal is about having the right mindset and taking the right steps.

Now it's your turn: 

Reflect on this year and think about all the wonderful experiences you had. The places you got to see and the new people you got to meet. Ask yourself questions like:

- What was a highlight for me this year? 
- What are some key resources (blogs, books, podcast, etc) that changed my mindset, habits, and behavior this year? 

After you write those down in your journal think about some of the goals you crushed and the ones your still working on. 

- Which goal crushing strategies worked well for you? 
- Which ones need improvement? 
- What are some obstacles you faced this year? 

Example: Did you find that you were emotionally exhausted and it kept you from pursuing your goals as much as you wanted or were you physically exhausted because you had to balance your work and personal life so you let go of your dreams for now?

No matter what your struggle was this year there is a solution and with the right strategy, you will overcome it.

2019 is full of opportunities waiting for you to get out and explore them! Don't waste another year wishing, hoping or dreaming about what's possible. Get out there and stop dreaming and start doing! My team and I are here to help. Our step-by-step system has guided many people who feel overwhelmed and challenged by their goals just like you. We walk with them through daily obstacles, mindset restrictions, and real-life challenges that physically stop them from pursuing their goals.
