A Lack Of Resources Is Never The Problem

January 30, 2019


Have you ever secretly thought, "no matter what I do I can't get ahead...I need the right people/team or equipment to attain what I want...I don't have enough money to get what I want..." or all of the above?  If you whispered "yes" then I have good news for you! None of these things are your real problem.

A lack of support, money, resources, and everything else you think of will never be the reason why you don't achieve your goals! The only thing that can stop you from getting to where you want to be is you.

"Stop stopping yourself."
- Unknown

All of the reason listed above are only resources! They do not make or break your success. Yes, having excess money and a smart team of professionals around you will help to get things done a lot faster, however, every successful person that you can think of (right now think about those specifically in your industry) started off where you are with almost nothing and sometimes even less than that! What you need isn't more insightful strategies, clever information, or generous support. You need to become resourceful!

Look at the things that you feel are holding you back and FIND SOLUTIONS! Obstacles are only opportunities for growth. They are not meant to slow you down or distract you instead they are apart of your growing pains! You would never expect to survive climbing the highest mountain you've ever climbed in your life without first properly training and preparing for the event, right? Well the same principle applies to your life!

"It's not about your resources
it's about your resourcefulness."

- Tony Robbins

If you want to go further than you've ever gone you have to stretch yourself. If you want to go to the next level, start maximizing your potential, and really see satisfactory results with your goals you have to challenge yourself to see options where others see nothing at all. Developing your mind, beliefs, perspective, and self-awareness will help you to become more resourceful.

While on this journey you will also have to turn your excuses into the driving force behind why you can and will achieve your goal(s). There is no reason on earth why you can't achieve success in whatever you want. I talk to tons of people every day who have dreams of creating a life they enjoy, but when I ask them why they haven't started creating it they say things like "it's not practical, I need to make a living, I have to earn good money, I don't know anyone who is doing it/has done it..." and so on.

I can't tell you how sad I feel when I hear the hopelessness in their voices. They not only feel trapped because they think they can't live a purposeful life, they also feel like settling for less than what they want is acceptable. Guys! This is madness! Why limit yourself to the experiences of those around you?! There are ENDLESS possibilities in the world, endless opportunities waiting for you to become resourceful and find them, and endless doors waiting for you to open them! You're not stuck living the life you're currently living unless that's where you want to be.

Although they may not realize it, they are actually stuck in a fear-based comfort zone that will continue to hold them hostage if they don't start dreaming about all the beautiful things life has to offer them again. The truth is, I can understand the logic behind some of these thoughts and beliefs. However, if they dig deep they will realize that these are only excuses.

We literally have access to the world at our finger tips. Anything we want to learn is available to us online. Any skill we want to develop can easily be executed through self-discipline and focus. Anything we want to do is waiting for us to figure out how to do it! Creating a life that we enjoy now, in 2019 is not as hard as it was years ago!

Don't allow fear, excuses, or lack to turn you into a 9-5 zombie. If your heart desires to have full control over your time and generate good income while doing something you love then go for it! Don't settle for the average, mundane life that offers you no freedom to express your creativity and uniqueness. You were created for more!

Believe that what you want to achieve IS possible and find a way to get it done. Stay inspired by reading autobiographies and biographies by people who have faced similar challenges to you and have overcome. Read leadership and personal development books that expand your mind and teach you how to become the person that you see yourself being. Get around successful people and start doing the simple things that they do like showing up to meetings early, resting your body, being grateful, and working smart (not hard).

If you know that you're capable of crushing your goals then I want to see you taking bold massive action steps toward them. Find a way when things seem impossible. Push through the noise when everyone around you says it's not possible. Do what you have to do and become resourceful. Don't let another year slip through the cracks. Your goal(s) are yours for the taking if your ready to go get it. Until next time, xo!

Dare To Be Different

January 29, 2019


Live an uncommon life and dare to be different! Today, I want to challenge you to carve your own path, create amazing opportunities for yourself, and live outside of what's considered "normal". You're not here to blend in with the crowd, get married, have babies, and work a 9-5 job that isn't aligned with your purpose. I mean com'on, what's the point in following everyone else when expressing your individuality is what you do best! It just comes naturally to you!

Don't give into the pressure. You were created with a clear and strong unique voice to share with the world and we are waiting for you to come out of hiding and dare to be different!

Related post: You Are Unique!

I know life is full of challenges and things don't always work out the way that you have planned but that doesn't mean that you should stop taking risks. The primary reason why people stop themselves from living a fulfilling life is because of fear. They tell themselves "I'm too old, I'm too young, I have too many responsibilities now, my time has passed, I don't know what I'm doing, what if this doesn't work, I don't want to look stupid in front of my peers..." and so on. By believing these things fear keeps them stuck living in should of, could of, would of land feeling purposeless and lost.

Taking risk is where your adventure begins! This is where you come alive! So what if you don't know what you're doing in the beginning. How do you think Oprah Winfrey got started? Do you think she had all of the resources she needed, a supportive community, and unlimited cash flow? Not even close! She had a dollar and a dream! Do you hear me!? Lol, she started with a vision of what she wanted to accomplish in a set time period, worked hard at developing herself, creating opportunities and took things one step at a time, one project at a time, and one hire at a time. There is no magic formula to this you have to start where you are with what you have.


"Be thankful for what you have;
you'll have more. If you concentrate on what you don't have,
you'll never have enough"

- Oprah Winfrey


Don't limit yourself! Let go of fear-based thinking, become resourceful, and take risks based on where you want to be 2-5 years from now. Nelson Mandela said it best "it always seems impossible until it's done."

You were made to face the unknown with confidence, you are capable of doing more than you imagine, and you're life is meant to be lived on purpose. Don't fall asleep on your potential. Make the necessary changes and start living your dreams. Until next time, xo!

Challenge: Turn 2019 into Your Year of Action

January 21, 2019


It's a new year and your mind is bubbling with fresh ideas and goals to crush before December catches up to you again. Whether your goal is to lose 10 lbs, increase your income, finally land your dream job, or officially launch your business, you're going to need something more than just intense focus and fierce determination. You must turn the next 11 months into a clear blueprint that leads to achieving your goal(s).

"Small daily improvements over time lead to stunning results.”
- Robin Sharma

What do I mean by this? It's simple. For each month you need to pinpoint specific goals that you have to achieve in order for you to stay on the right path to achieving your goal by your set deadline.

Here's an example:

If your goal is to increase your income by $1,000 by the end of this year you have to increase your monthly pay by $84/month. This breaks down to $21/week and $3/day.

Is this a realistic goal? No doubt! You could easily increase your income by $2,000 if you wanted to. There are many ways to achieve this including getting a part-time job, starting a side hustle, and so on, but no matter how you get it done the underlying principle is the same. As long as you bring in an additional $3/day for 365 days you will hit your goal!

Now this sounds pretty easy, right? Well, it is and it isn't. To achieve your goal you have to break it down into clear monthly, weekly, and daily objectives, however, if this was all it took most people would have achieved their goals by now, but we know that only 8% of people achieve their goals. So what is the missing link? Consistent accountability!

"Accountability breeds 
response-ability."
- Steven Covey

Ask any successful person how they attained success and they will tell you they had a team, coach, mentor, or a community of people who believed in them and held them accountable to follow through with their goals.

It's easy to think that your goals will keep you motivated, you don't need external support, and this is a new year, new you, but the truth is if you could achieve your goal(s) on your own, you would have done it already.

"You could have all of the self-discipline in the world,
a strong work ethic, & be the smartest person in your class, but STILL never achieve your goals."
- Tee Forever

This is because, as much as we don't like to admit it sometimes, we need each other. In the book of proverbs, it's explained like this "as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.". When you subject yourself to quality accountability you open the door to gaining greater understanding, clear insights that you can't currently see, and deeper wisdom.

Without accountability, you will end up tripping over the same obstacles presented in new ways (until you address them) and you'll continue to self-sabotage without understanding why. Trust me, I've been there and done that! 

As much as I love personal development and I was reading new things to expand my mind, the old familiar way of behaving was still ingrained in me. I still had destructive subconscious beliefs that were holding me back like "if I become successful people will reject me, try to use me..." and so on. So because I subconsciously believed this for years when I started going after my goals I would unintentionally self-sabotage. 

Here's an example:
After being consistent and sticking to my goals for months, as soon as I started to see results I would slow down and not pursue the goal as much. I noticed this pattern in almost everything that I pursued and it wasn't until I became aware of the lies I had stored in my subconscious that I was able to address them (not just dismiss them) by actually digging them up and working through them. After this process, I was able to sustain progressive success. 


"Learning new, helpful information
will not change the core of
what you subconsciously believe."
- Tee Forever

Turn this year into your year of action by choosing to address your junk. Clean up your subconscious beliefs, find out why you keep stumbling over the same obstacles and get rid of everything that isn't helping you to get to your destination. It's time to kick those familiar habits in the butt and get the ball rolling on your goals. Trust me, if I could do it, so can you! Until next time, xo!

You Are Unique!

January 16, 2019


We've all heard it before, right? Whether it was in a birthday card or through someone expressing their love. We can understand the general concept behind being unique, but how often do you feel this way? I mean, how many times a day do you think of yourself as unique or special? If you said "hardly ever" you're not alone! 

Let's be honest, thinking about yourself in this way can feel awkward! Truth be told it can feel arrogant or self-centered, but my question for you is WHY? Why does it make you uncomfortable?


I can tell you, for me, it was because unlike everyone else, I thoroughly know myself. I can see all of the ways that I am similar to others and can sometimes blend in to fit the environment making myself less unique and more "acceptable". In my mind, it was almost as if being unique was a reason to be rejected and I didn't want it.

Now let me tell you right now, this kind of fear-based thinking will keep you living a dead, purposeless life, hidden behind excuses and compromise. You will feel aimless and discontent with everything. As a unique individual being anything less than who you are will only lead to dissatisfaction. Don't do it!

I understand that the word unique is used very often so we can sometimes lose the interpretation so allow me to explain what I mean by unique. The dictionary defines it as "being the only one of it's kind" which goes hand in hand with my beliefs. Being unique is simply being original. It's being your TRUE self. Simply put, it's being authentic. 

You know the natural way that you are when no one is around? The you that has tons of ideas floating around in your mind but no one ever hears them because you disqualify yourself saying things like "that's a stupid idea, no that won't work, no this is silly, I can't share that...". Yes! THAT YOU! 
The you that you hide when you're in public because you want to make others feel comfortable or less intimidated by your shine. That's the you we're all waiting to see and experience! 

Related post: Why On Earth Are You Here?

The way you think, feel and express your emotions, and the way that you communicate are all unique to your upbringing, life experiences, environment, training, and so on. No one on earth can do what you do in the exact same way that you do it. No one can say what you say and have the same effect on people. Even if you were put in a room with other people and you all read the same script, each of you would have a different emphasis on keywords and ideas that stand out to you. You would all have 
different ways of feeling after reading the script, and you would all express it differently.

My friend, you are a unique creation! Enjoy who you are and don't be afraid to share it with the world because we are waiting to connect with the real you! We are waiting to see what being authentic and living an authentic life looks like. We are waiting to connect with you on a real level! Stop hiding behind fake personalities and cultural norms. Just be yourself.


I know it can feel uncomfortable at first but if you think we can't already see you, you're wrong! The way that you speak, the tone of your voice, and your body language are just a few ways that you naturally present your individuality to the world. Being yourself comes naturally to you so let go of comparison, stop trying to please others, take a deep breath and let us see the real you!


What are you afraid of? You're beautiful! I mean really! There is no one else on the planet that can lead like you do or care for others with the same degree of compassion. In 2019 choose to break out of your shell and live your authentic life. Trust me, you'll be happier when you do. Until next time, xo!

Why On Earth Are You Here?

January 14, 2019


A lot of people talk about knowing your purpose and creating a life that brings you the utmost fulfillment, but how exactly are you suppose to find out what your purpose is? I mean, are there clear-cut practical steps you can take to find out exactly why you were created? Yes! And I'll walk you through each of them in this post!

I'm not going to lie to you, knowing your purpose is connected to being self and spiritually aware. Although some believe in the big bang theory I come from the belief that there is a definite Creator. He's not only creative and original, but everything He makes is the way it is for a reason. Here's an example, spiders may not be the cutest insects and I'm sure you don't like seeing them around your house, BUT they get rid of all the annoying creepy crawlers that you find snooping around your bedroom like flies, mosquitos, and clothes moth. Can somebody say "thank God for spiders!"? Lol

In the same way that you can see the purpose of spiders in how they were made, you can also find your purpose by uncovering the real, authentic, you! Think about some of your natural strengths, how you function best, when you feel the most creative, inspired, and passionate. These are all indications of what you were created to do! You were made with distinct features, characteristics, talents, skills, and traits. To find your purpose you have to answer questions such as:

Step 1: Self-Awareness

1. What do I enjoy doing so much that I lose track of time doing it?

Example: I enjoy reading, writing, talking/communicating, building relationships, spending time with my kids, etc. Write down everything related to the question that comes to mind no matter how simple you think it is.

2. What skills come naturally to me?

Example: Listening, teaching, writing, singing, public speaking, and so on. Write down everything related to the question that comes to mind no matter how simple you think it is.

3. What are some of my strongest interest or what do I enjoy learning about?

Example: Some of my interest include business, marketing, psychology, personal development, and so on. Write down everything related to the question that comes to mind no matter how simple you think it is.

4. What could I easily do for free that offers people a lot of value, life improvement,  and so on?

Answering questions like these will reveal your passion, natural skills and abilities, and areas of interest so that you can more easily create a purposeful life filled with spontaneous adventures and meaningful learning experiences.

Now please, dont do this once and then send me an email saying "Tee, I love you, but it didn't work! I still don't know what my purpose is" Lol. No! That's not how this works. This is the type of exercise you have to do continually to dig through all your junk! I mean, think about it. You spent years doing the wrong things and following the wrong path so how could doing an exercise like this change your life overnight? It won't! Lol, there are no magic tricks or shortcuts to this thing. You have to do the work if you want the results.

Related post: So What If They Don't Believe In You

Looking at your strengths and natural abilities is an easy way to boil down what your purpose could be. Your gifts and talents are not just for your enjoyment. They were given to you so that you can share it in a unique way with the world. Your job is to find this "sweet spot!" and to develop it. What do I mean by sweet spot? Well, I'm glad you asked!

"Your sweet spot is GOLD!"
- Tee Forever

When you find it it's like hitting the lottery! I mean for real! This is the place where your strengths and your passions align and you're able to profit from what comes naturally to you. You will add value to the world in a way that is unique to your design. Yes, you will still have to develop yourself, go through training, and so on, but you'll feel a lot more authentic and connected to what you're doing. A fulfilled and satisfied life is only the tip of the iceberg. You'll also get to experience the real contentment that comes from knowing that you're living the life that YOU were CREATED to LIVE. Trust me, you'll be walking on clouds!

Step 2: Connect The Dots

Okay, so we talked about answering the questions that will help you to easily find your purpose. Now circle all of the common or reoccurring skills, talents, and passions, that you have. This allows you to narrow down your list to a small group of options. 

After you've circled everything spend some time translating your skills and abilities into ways that they can be expressed or marketed in the business world. Remember knowing your purpose determines your vocation and potential business opportunities. With your natural skills, there are real problems and difficult situations that you can solve. 

List about 3-5 industries, careers, or business ideas that your skills could easily serve/add value to.

Example:

The skill of writing can be translated into
- Journalism
- Scriptwriting/Screenwriting
- Editing/Columnist
- Blogging
- And so on.

The skill of talking/communication can be translated into:
- Public speaking
- Sales
- Educator/Teacher
- And so on.

Step 3: 

Once this is done, identify the industries, careers, and/or business opportunities that resonate with you the most. For example, my small list of options would include:

- Editing
- Blogging
- Public speaking
- Coaching
- And so on

Narrow your list down to about 10 options that really get you excited or you feel align more with your interest and skills.

Step 4: Dig Into Your Passion

Now that you've selected the top 10 possibilities sit on these ideas and dig into them for a while. Think of it like a well-cooked stew or chili. You want all of the flavors to marinate together to create the most delicious meal you've had to date so instead of rushing through the process and throwing everything into the pot at once, take your time allow your meat to soak in the flavors overnight, dice your veggies, and enjoy this self-discovery process.

You are a work of art that is complex, full of potential and capable of changing the world (literally). Don't limit your greatness, don't give up on yourself, and most importantly don't allow others to determine who you are or who you can become. 2019 is your year. Until next time, xo!

I Give Up, Goal Setting Doesn't Work!

January 9, 2019


Oh my goodness! Do you know how many times I've heard this statement? Only about 100,000,000! Lol, I mean seriously. I find that as action-oriented people (myself included) sometimes we tend to jump from one really good idea to the next.

Now the ability to be flexible and open-minded is great! We respond well to new information, we're open to change, we're quick learners, go-getters, you name it. HOWEVER, the downside of this is that we sometimes shift too quickly from one thing to the next leaving us with nothing to show for all of our efforts. Do you know what I mean? Let me break it down for you really quickly.

When we come up with a really good idea or hear something that can potentially improve our lives we quickly respond and start applying what we've learned but we don't stick to it long enough to see results. We don't endure through what I call the growing process. Everybody knows that when you plant a seed no matter what type of plant you're growing you will not get results overnight. You can toil over that seed day and night, add water and nurture it religiously, but it will not cause the plant to grow faster.

"There is a time for everything."
- Ecclesiastes

Like in the example above we have to give ourselves time to mature into who we want to become and we have to give our goals time to manifest. Having an amazing, practical plan to achieve your goal(s) is only step one. Following through with your plan is step two and requires self-discipline and focus. So this is great! You have an effective plan, you've started the process and you're feeling good about it, but step 3 is PATIENCE. Give your plan enough time to produce your desired outcome. Give yourself enough time to go through the growing process, make mistakes, and learn from your experiences.

"Setting goals & goal planning
will never bring you 
overnight success."
- Tee Forever

So this year, let's do things a little differently. Instead of setting goals, seeking quick results, and then giving up on goal planning altogether, let's continue to set goals. Goal setting helps you to clearly define exactly what you want. It gives you vision and long-term focus. It's the passion that drives what you do with your time, money and resources. It ultimately decides who you become. Having a clear goal helps you to achieve clear, precise results. 

Once you've clarified your goal imagine that you've attained it. Think about all of the steps you had to take to get that big result. Did you have to get more training? Change your diet? Find a coach or mentor? What steps did you take to achieve your big goal? Write it all down and get someone with experience in that area or who is an avid goal crusher and ask them to review it. 

Here's a tip: There are many ways to achieve a goal. As long as you have the basic principles (which we'll talk about later this year) included in your blueprint you will start getting results.

After you've written your big picture goal which sets your long-term focus, and you've created a step-by-step guide to get there which sets your short-term priorities you have to work your plan and stick with it until you see results. If you've been rocking with me for any amount of time you know that i talk a lot about enjoying your process to success. The process is apart of the experience, it's what makes the goal worth pursuing, it's like the cream in ice cream or the milk in butter. If you don't take your time and walk through the process, you won't get to taste the result.

The truth is the journey to attaining your goals will add to your personal development in so many incredible ways. Your mindset and beliefs will become stronger. You'll sharpen your decision-making skills and improve your thought patterns. You'll also begin to see opportunity where others see obstacles, develop self-awareness and build stronger self-confidence. Your character will begin to take shape as well as you finally become the type of person you always knew you could be! Oh goodness I could go on about this for days lol! Just trust me, everything in your life improves when you set out to crush a major life goal!

Don't let this year be like 2018. Choose to grow, choose to be different, and choose to actively pursue your goals until you see results. Until next time, xoxo!

If I Don't Win In Life Is It My Fault?

January 7, 2019


How many of you have asked yourself this question in one form or another? It's okay, no one can hear you, you can say "yes, I have!" we won't judge you *wink*. I've asked myself this question many times throughout my goal crushing journey because, let's face it, achieving your goals requires a lot of effort and on most days I just didn't want to do it. So, let me ask you if I don't get the results I want in my life is it my fault or can I blame it on other things?

You know what I'm talking about, maybe I can blame someone like God, after all, He made me this way, right? Plus, He owns the world! If there is something He wants me to have He'll give it to me or He will make it easy for me to get it, right? Or what about my environment? Maybe I can blame my friends and family for not pushing me to pursue my goals and develop my potential. They of all people should know how much I want to achieve this goal and they should at least help me to stay motivated, right? Or what about my circumstances! Yes! If I didn't lose my job, get sick, get a divorce, have kids, debt and everything else I would be ahead in life right now. I would be pursuing my goals enthusiastically with no baggage or extra mess to clean up.

These are just a few examples of the kind of stumbling blocks I help people to overcome every day. Is it your fault if you don't achieve the results you want in life? Yes, and here's why I say that (read this carefully). Everyone in the world has access to 24 hours a day. Whether your born rich or poor, white or black, in a wealthy country or in a politically corrupt country. We all have 24 hours at our disposal every day to spend in any way we choose.

Some people will use their time to play video games, watch what others are doing on social media, chill with friends, binge-watch movies, and so on. While others spend their time challenging their perspective of the world, learning about their industry, developing themselves (mentally and physically), networking, gaining experience in their field of interest, and do on.

Now simply based on this example which group of people do you think are in a better position to achieve their goals? The people who binge-watched movies or the people who spent their time developing themselves? The second group right!? Well, that's the key right there.

"Personal development is your plane ticket to your ideal life. It's the price you pay to get to where you want to go."
- Tee Forever

Personal development is the key to achieving your goals. You will never get the results you want if you don't develop your mind, character, skills, and abilities. There is no way around it! You will either pay for your goals in full or you will end up watching other people live your dreams. It really is that simple and it's your choice.

Now, I understand that sometimes you can find yourself in a disadvantaged position. Trust me, I was born and raised by a single mom, I don't know my dad, my mom passed away when I was 15 years old, I've been sexually abused, I know what it feels like to live in survival mode, waiting for your next pay cheque to roll in and still not have enough money to pay the bills, and so on. No one taught me about goal setting or personal development. No one showed me how to manage my money in a way that would help me to be productive or stable in life. My environment wasn't conducive to helping me to become the person that I am today, but guess what, I am who I am despite my obstacles and disadvantages and maybe these challenges actually helped to develop my tenacity. Your struggle can either work for you or you can allow it to become a crutch and work against you.

"The moment you accept responsibility
for everything in your life
is the moment you gain the power 
to change anything in your life."
- Hal Elrod

There is a way out! Your story doesn't have to end with you stuck in unproductive cycles. It took me some time, but I went from feeling like a rejected orphan to knowing that I am a valued and loved daughter. I stopped being careless with money, started listening to people who were financially wiser than I am and I simply applied the basic money principles they teach. Even to this day, I continue to develop my understanding of money and I'm currently enrolled in a money mindset shift program that is teaching me how to be even more efficient with money. Lol, the learning and personal growth never stops in my world.

"To earn more,
you must learn more."
- Brian Tracy 

I'm sure your story is different from mine but the basic principles are still there. You can go from struggling and not knowing where to start to being organized and having a plan that will get you exactly what you want. You might be thinking, "Tee, it's not that easy. I've tried to improve my life before... nothing works for me." Well, the truth is, nothing works unless you do and you have to give yourself time before you start expecting to see results. You will not lose 10 lbs in a day. You also won't crush your goals overnight. You have to stick with it for the long haul.

Bonus: For Anyone Needing Encouragement

I know that taking responsibility for your life doesn't feel good and you might think it's a lot of pressure, but the truth is, it's liberating. To know that you determine what happens next in your story, you decide whether you're going to die in struggle or rise out of it, you choose what your next move is. That my friend is FREEDOM!

Make the most of your life by choosing to develop yourself starting today. Until next time, xo!

So What If They Don't Believe In You

January 2, 2019

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

I took a two-week break from blogging, social media, and everything work related to rest and spend some time in solitude. I knew in advance that January was going to be a very busy month so I scheduled the time away to re-focus, set priorities, and get creative. We're now in 2019 and I can't wait to inspire you to crush your biggest goals for this year! In 2019 you can expect me to challenge you in every area of your life with the goal of helping you to achieve what I call "whole success".

Whole success is achieving your major goals while still nurturing other important areas of your life like quality relationships, finances, and so on. Over the next 12 months, I'll be sharing my personal strategy to overcoming yourself and getting what you want in life. If you're ready to stop dreaming and start doing let's go!
Real Talk

As a coach for goal-getters and people who need help crushing major life goals I've noticed that a common roadblock for people is that no one supports their vision/goals or the people they value don't believe in them, underestimate them, or devalue them. We like to think that these attitudes and "negative vibes" from people around us doesn't affect us, but the truth is it does.

I worked with a client who had a very positive outlook on life, great energy, and determination to achieve their goals, but they couldn't figure out why they had a habit of starting things they were passionate about but always leaving something incomplete, hence not finishing the project/goal. After doing some digging in the first few weeks we found an underlying pattern of self-sabotage related to feelings of insecurity and fear. These feelings were connected to things people said to them, said about them, or the way people treated them. Long story short before we could start making progress they needed to properly address the issues and burn the bridges, committing to complete transformation. They had to uncover their life experiences, stare their mistakes, flaws, and weaknesses in the face and still choose to believe in themself.

"Whether you think you can
or you think you can't - you're right." 
- Henry Ford 

Believing that you can achieve something is the first mountain that you will climb to crush your goals this year. You don't need others to approve of your journey or assist you to your destination. If you believe in yourself you're well on your way. Will it be a lonely journey? Yes, maybe in the beginning but as you pursue your goals you will meet like-minded people who will become your inspiration and supporters. Until then read books about people who inspire you. Keep the fire blazing on your own and maintain a sober focus that helps you to find solutions rather than being weighed down by opposition. Look for reasons to believe that your goals are possible. When you start feeling discouraged or getting distracted remind yourself of all the things you've already accomplished (big and small). 

"The journey of a thousand miles
begins with one step."
- Lao Tzu 

You've got this! Don't minimize your goals because others don't believe it's possible and don't fall off your goal crushing ban wagon because people don't believe in you. You know yourself better than anyone else and especially if it's been done before why can't you be the next person to do it? The future is in your hands. Don't let 2019 slip through your fingers. Work through your fears, minimize distractions and CRUSH YOUR GOALS! Until next time, xoxo!
