In Honor of Kobe Bryant: Be Great At Whatever You Do

January 27, 2020




I had another episode planned for you today, but after hearing about Kobe Bryant's death on Sunday, January 26th, 2020 I decided that what I had planned can wait. For anyone who may not be familiar with Kobe Bryant, he was an incredibly talented and highly disciplined athlete who mastered the game of basketball. With time, hard work, and commitment he grew into a legend. He is the only player in NBA history to have two jersey numbers (the numbers 8 and 24) retired by the same team (the Lakers). He retired in 2016 and has gone on to support initiatives that help to move the basketball forward.

Fresh Perspective

It's funny how death can hit you with a wind of sobriety. It challenged me to put everything into perspective and really examine WHY I do everything I do. After hearing about his death I took a moment to re-evaluate my priorities and really make sure that everything I have planned for this year aligns with my purpose.

Here's the truth

We all know that when we die we don't take anything with us and yet we spend most of our life accumulating STUFF! Some people waste their whole life pursuing status, positions, and so on only to die and realize they lived their whole life in vain! I don't want this to happen to you so I have to ask, what is all of your hustle and bustle for? Why do you have the goals that you have this year? How will your achievements make a difference in your life and/or the world? Are your goals aligned with your PURPOSE?! I'll tell you right now if it's not aligned with our purpose you're wasting your time!

Be Great At Whatever You Do

People who have achieved extraordinary levels of success always say "success leaves clues". Kobe Bryant was an extraordinary leader, thinker, and trailblazer. Hit play to hear about the clues we can uncover from taking a look at the life and legacy of Kobe Bryant! Until next time, xo!

Take Responsibility For The Results In Your Life & Business

January 20, 2020




Hey! Welcome back. Today we are talking about how to take full responsibility for your life and business to hit your goals and experience your wildest dreams! I know, at the beginning of this year when you set your goals you were fired up, ready for any obstacle and 100% committed to changing your life. Now we're a few weeks into the year and things are still looking the same as last year, am I right? You don't see any progress, you aren't as motivated to do the necessary work, and you're starting to feel straight up FRUSTRATED! Don't worry I got you. This episode is EXACTLY what you need. Hit play and let's go!

new here

If you're new here WELCOME! My name is Theresa but my friends call me Tee! Feel free to do the same! I help goal-getters, leaders, and big dreamers who struggle with self-discipline and procrastination to take action on their big, crazy business and lifestyle goals so they can live 100% in control of their life! Unlike many who tell you achieving BIG goals takes a long time, I show you how to do it in 90 days or less using proven strategies! If that's you sign up to join my email list so you never miss a post!

Let's be Honest

Before we jump in I have to tell you, I had something completely different planned for today's episode! I mean, it was a totally different topic, we were going to get into the practicalities of goal achievement and I was going to share my goal for this quarter (90-days), but after connecting with many of you and hearing about your struggles I decided to shift gears and dive into this topic because let's be honest...you NEED it!

Related Post: What Do You Want To Be True This Time Next Year?

Setting and achieving big goals is simple, but it's far from easy! It's the last thing anyone wants to commit to (including me) because it's challenging, uncomfortable, and it can feel scary. This is why we all need a motivating WHY! We need something compelling to keep us focused, sober, and alert so that we actually follow through on our goals. Are you with me? This is why knowing and understanding your purpose is VITAL

Purpose

For me and my clients, the only motivating factor is PURPOSE. Without it, goal setting is useless and empty! Totally void of any real substance that will sustain you when the obstacles arise. Your purpose is your life mission. When you understand you are here on assignment to do something specific the way you spend your time changes. The vision for your life and business changes. The kind of goals you set CHANGES! I mean, your life becomes an incubator for your creative genius!

You don't allow your circumstance, environment, or society to determine the kind of goals you set. You don't allow your past experience to tell you whether you will fail or succeed. You are committed to creating what you are 100% convinced it possible for you!

Related Post: Stop Waiting For Permission

Goal setting is a tool to help you create magic in your life and business. It's not to be used for trivial things like just being "successful" for the sake of being successful. It's not for you to accumulate wealth just to say you have it. It's for achieving true greatness. Living your life to the fullest. Experiencing your purpose in ways you've only dreamed of! It's to live the life you were created to live full of vibrant passion, contagious love for what you do, and absolute freedom! So why are you not getting the results you want? Why does it feel like you're on the brink of failure and nothing has changed from last year to this year? Well, it's because you need to...

Take Responsibility For Your Results

You are in control of your life. If there is something you want and don't have it's on you to create it, find it, or do what needs to be done to have it. You can't just create a vision board, declare that what you want is yours and then expect it to find it's way to you. Don't get me wrong, miracles happen and this can definitely be your experience, however, when you take inspired action, do the work and create what you want you are 100% more likely to get what you want. Hit play and let's talk about this!

the 8% of people who crush their goals

91% of people fail to achieve their goals. This is not because their goals are too hard, unrealistic, or unachievable. This happens because they don't have a plan (you can hear more about this here) and they are not committed! Winston Churchill said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” Writing your goals down on paper is NOT a plan. Talking to friends and family about what you want to do this year is NOT a plan. Praying, hoping, and vision boarding is NOT a plan! Getting practical about how you will achieve what you want is the basis for turning your goals into reality! Following through on your commitment is what gets you RESULTS!

100% commitment

You have to know what you want, why you want it, and what you will do to create it. This is not for the faint of heart or easily dissuaded. 100% commitment is the only way to make this your best year, create a life-changing business, and step into your destiny. I promise there are opportunities are out in the world waiting for you to enjoy them but if you are not committed you will miss them! #StayWoke! Hit play and let's talk about how you can become RELENTLESS this year to experience what you know you deserve! Total and absolute FREEDOM!

SUMMARY:

If you don't stop for anything nothing will stop you. If you want to live your wildest dreams, build a business that can sustain your lifestyle, and truly live your purpose you have to be 100% committed to taking full responsibility for the results in your life. Hit play to hear about how I practice this principle every day. Until next time, I love you stop dreaming and start doing! XO

90-day Goals: What They Are, Where to Start, & How to Create One

January 13, 2020



Hey! Welcome back I hope you had an awesome week! If you've been following my IG stories you know last Monday was the FRIST DAY of my brand new online program How to Turn Your Goals Into Reality! So I have been working on building out this beta program with a group of focused, ambitious, leaders who are ready to not only smash but exceed their lifestyle and business goals this year using a 90-day framework!

How To Turn Your Goals Into Reality


Wooooouuu! I'm so excited because their goals include things like starting an online business which will help them to be more in control of their life, time, and salary! Can I get an amen? Becoming millionaires which allows them to be more generous, helpful, and stress-free in relation to money. They will also be able to focus on living and enjoying their purpose rather than working for survival which is something every visionary struggles with. They have also started writing books that can and I believe WILL impact the world! I mean, go BIG or go home right!? In the words of Nelson Mandela, it always seems impossible until it's done!

By the end of 90-days, this group of big dreamers will have already crushed their goal (like it's finito! all DONE! Moving on to the next goal!) or they will have a solid foundation to build momentum and be starting the second quarter of this year with a solid game plan to create fast results in their life and business! I mean, you can't lose with this framework.

Related Post: Ask Tee Anything: How to Start This Decade Strong

So today I'll be walking you through exactly how you can take this framework and plug your goals in so that you can get maximum results from YOUR goals in LESS THAN 90-DAYS and start seeing results in the next 7! Amazing right? Don't worry, you can thank me later *wink*! I'll be answering questions like what are they? Where should you start? And how can you create one? If you're ready hit play and let's go!

New Here


If you're new here WELCOME! My name is Theresa but my friends call me Tee! Feel free to do the same! I help goal-getters, leaders, and big dreamers who struggle with self-discipline and procrastination to take action on their big, crazy business and lifestyle goals so that they can have more independence and freedom! Unlike many who tell you achieving BIG goals takes a long time, I show you how to do it in 90 days or less using proven strategies! If that's what you want, you're in the right place!

Why You Need This?


Big dreamers who fail to hit their lifestyle and business goals fail not because their lazy, have unrealistic goals, or their goals are too hard. No. They fail because they don't have any structure.  They fail because they think that writing the goal down on paper is a plan and it's not! When you write your goals down all you have is simply a wishlist of everything you WANT to accomplish. This is not a plan my friend.

When you go to execute the goal you will realize how unprepared and disorganized you really are and after a few weeks of trying to figure it out and putting all of your efforts into the wrong tasks and activities trying to produce results you will burn out and end up giving up.

Related Post: What Do You Want to Be True This Time Next Year?

Maybe you've experienced this before? I won't lie, I know I have. For many years I struggled trying to understand why hitting my goals was so hard and why nothing seemed to work so if this sounds like you don't worry! By the end of this episode, you will go from struggling goal-getter to high achiever!

The 90-day Framework


The most efficient way to crush your goals in 2020 is by taking your big crazy goal and breaking it down into 90-day chunks. These chunks are what I call the 90-day framework. They help you to set realistic goals, measure your progress, and build momentum. Without this framework, you are totally wasting your time and creating results in your life will be HARD! You'll continue to set goals and struggle to hit them every year. You'll wonder why nothing seems to work for you or things never go as planned and eventually you will get tired of trying.

How To Create One?


Ready to create one? Here's what you do. Take your goal whether it's a project-based goal (growing your impact, writing a book, starting a business, and so on) or a revenue-based goal (increasing or generating sales in your business, becoming debt-free, and so on) and instead of spreading it across a 12 month period (giving yourself 12-months to hit the goal) break it into 4 quarters (give yourself 3 months to hit it).

Here is an example:

Goal: I want to grow my impact by increasing my IG (Instagram) following by 1,000 people. This means by Dec.31st 2020 I will have an additional 1,000 followers on Instagram.

Great! Now, what do I do?

Instead of leaving this goal up in the air and trying to figure it out along the way you can actually have a secure plan that supports you in creating this outcome in real life. So, this is where goal planning gets fun! Let's roll out the STRUCTURE!

Chunk it:

When you break this goal down into chunks here is what happens. The goal of attracting 1,000 followers is divided by 4 and becomes easier to attain. To stay on track with your goal you would need to attract 250 followers every 3 months. This can further be broken down to help you realistically plan monthly goals which would give you a monthly goal of attracting 84 followers/month. Do you see how EASY this is?! If that just went over your head scroll back up to the top of this page and hit play so I can example this to you again.

Here is a summary: Take your 12-month goal, divide it by 4 (chunk it into 4 quarters) then you have a clear 90-day outcome. Once you have this outcome you can then break it down further into monthly, weekly, and daily goals.

If we did this with this goal your journey would boil down to you connecting with 3 new followers a day or 21 new followers a week! Go ahead! Give it a try. Easy peasy! You would have no problem surpassing this goal if you really wanted to.

Oh, and by the way as a special New Year gift to help you maximize your time and effort this year, I will be hosting a LIVE FREE workshop to help you set and achieve your biggest goals using a 90-day frame so that you can give your goals the structure they deserve and make CRAZY progress in your life and business! If you want to join me LIVE sign up NOW!

Where To Start?


To start implementing a 90-day framework all you need to do is go back to your goals and break them down! Don't leave them on a 12-month timeline because my friend you know, IT WON'T GET DONE! Lol! I've been there so many times! Year after year struggling with the same goal and feeling like it's totally impossible to achieve it! Little did I know back then that a 90-day framework would change how I plan my entire life and business!

Related Post: Stop Waiting For Permission

Start with your biggest most challenging goal. The one you've had for years or felt stuck with and can't seem to make any progress with! Take this lofty goal and divide it by 4. This will give you 90-days to create magnificent results, make massive progress, and start feeling like a rock star!

You Might Be Wondering:


What if my goal takes longer than 90-day to achieve?


Well, what if it does? So what!? This system is not about getting instant results. It's about making progress, taking action, and creating momentum. If you don't get the ball rolling you won't clear the path for what's possible. It's the same thing with your goals. If you don't start walking (taking action to create what you want) then you won't get any feedback to know if you're walking in the right direction, need to try something else, or need to keep pressing into breakthrough and create some traction. The 90-day framework is all about getting results!

What about if I fall off the bandwagon and lose my way?


Well, if you and stop along the way you can just as easily start up again! Look, the only thing that can and will ever stop you from turning your goals into reality is you. Not your circumstances. Not your environment. Not your financial situation. NOthing. Only Y.O.U! So decided to be done with excuses, complaining, and everything else that keeps you from your dream life and business and get busy creating it.

What if I change my mind and don't want to pursue the goal anymore?


Well, that's okay and it happens! We are continually evolving and changing and that's why our goals need to be based on 1. Our purpose. What exactly we are here on earth to create and 2. Our 5 to 10-year plan to live that purpose. The goals we set for the year need to be connected to our 5 to 10-year plan or else there is no point in having a goal.

We are not taking each year as it comes and trying to figure out what we want that year to look like. No. That's what struggling goal-getters do and that is why they struggle. They don't have a long-term vision. There is nothing keeping them in the trenches. No passion (which is what I call fy-ah (fire) compelling them to create the impossible!

But not you! You are purpose-driven, on fy-ah, and ready to turn this world upside down! So meet in the FREE LIVE workshop to learn how to apply this system to your biggest business and lifestyle goals!

Summary:


Oh, I love you! Thank you for rocking with me in 2019 and I'm super pumped (if you can't tell) to help you create your best life, crush your biggest goals, and experience real abundance and freedom in every possible way this year! You are the reason why I post every week and I'm blessed to be able to serve you in this way. If this helped you don't be selfish and share it with someone you want to see succeed in 2020! As always, it's all love. Stop dreaming and start doing! Until next time.

Ask Tee Anything: How to Start This Decade Strong

January 6, 2020




NEW YEAR and welcome to season 2 of the podcast! First off I want to thank you for rocking with me! Last season was fun, I learned a lot! Hit play for a quick recap of everything we did in 2019! This season I have some treats for you!

Special Guests

We will have special guests to help you get your mind, money, and life TOGETHER because let's be honest, a lot of the time when we see successful people they are lonely! They suck at relationships, don't have a social life, and feel they have no one around them who really enjoys them for who they are. But NOT US!

This won't be our story! As we grow and crush bigger and bigger goals this year I want us to remain connected to the people who mean the most to us. I want us to manage our money responsibly so that we don't end up getting big opportunities and still being broke at the end of every month because we lack financial discipline and wisdom. I also want us to take better care of ourselves because let's face it as goal-getters and leaders we are always on the move! When was the last time you chilled? I mean, sat down and did absolutely NOTHING! Lol, exactly! You don't know and neither do I. This year we will work hard, but we are also going to rest hard too!

book club

This season I will also share a book recommendation every month so you can grow with me! I want you to stay mentally on track to crush your big amazing goals. What I hear often is that as you pursue your goals your also battling your inner fears and things internally that try to distract you and throw you off course. To help you overcome this I will be sharing a book of the month every month that I have read or am currently reading that will help you to keep your head in the game so that you can live your life on purpose and grow without limits into who you're meant to be without fear and regret! I hope you're as excited as I am! This is season 2 episode 1 and today we're talking about how to start this decade STRONG! If you're ready...LET'S GO!

How to Start This Decade Strong

A few weeks ago I opened up the poll on Instagram and gave you an opportunity to ask me anything about goal achievement and productivity and today I will be answering all of those questions! If we aren't connected on the Gram all I have to say is whatttt!? You're slipping! Instagram is where I get to connect with you, learn more about what you need, and watch you grow by implementing the strategies we talk about here! So, go to Instagram right now and hit follow! In this episode, I will be answering all of your questions with practical strategies and sharing exactly what I would do if  I were in your shoes! If you're ready to rock n' roll hit play!

1. which goal should I start with?

Every goal you set this year should be based on your 5-10 year life or business vision. This means, prior to writing down your goals for this year you should at least have ONE clear goal for where you want to be 5-10 years from now.

Without a clear long-term outcome (vision), your short-term goal is useless. There is no purpose for it and you will quit. Every goal must be connected to a mission. The 5-10 year vision you hold for your life and business is the mission. With that being said to make this your most productive year start with the goal, projects, and so on that will yield your highest return. Start with the goal that fulfills everything else. It's like the domino effect. When you crush this big goal (task, activity, or project) you will be better prepared to complete other important goals. I hope that makes sense! If not, hit play for some examples.

2. how do I stay focused throughout the year? 

This is easy! When I say easy I mean, it's easy in theory but will be a challenge to practice. The way to stay focused throughout this year is to hold yourself accountable and get results. Turn off the gram, get off Facebook, and invest your time into creating your dreams. Stop watching what everyone else is doing and put all of your energy into building your empire, getting your business off the ground, launching your first online product, growing your impact, establishing your community, all of that good stuff.

Move your focus from being entertained and being a spectator of other people's lives and instead use that time to develop yourself, learn about your industry, master your craft and release it out into the world! You will be rewarded by your progress and that will help you to stay motivated to get it done.

Related Post: What Do You Want To Be True This Time Next Year?

Also, come back here every week and be inspired and energized for the week ahead! Going after a big goal is not easy. There are roadblocks, stop signs, and straight-up dead ends. The path to greatness is filled with opposition but don't let it stop or distract you from accomplishing your mission. You stay focused by knowing that what you are doing is apart of your purpose!

Give yourself a target to hit over the next 90-days. this helps you to focus all of your time and energy on one result over the next 3 months...

3. how do I let go of fear and step into my purpose?

Choose to stop living for the applause of the people around you. You are here for a reason. It's like you're pregnant with purpose and until you release it you won't fit in, life won't make sense, and you will feel STUCK!

When we allow fear to hold us back from being authentic, living life on a mission, and completing our "job" on earth we are saying that people's opinions, expectations of us, and dreams for our lives are more important than what God sent us here to do. #AintNOBODYGotTimeForThat!

Choose not to focus on the negative thoughts and opinions from others and the fear will fade. No one's opinion of you matters more than what God says and thinks about you! No one's opinion of you is more important than you being yourself, staying true to your mission, and living your life on fire!

4. how do I discover my purpose?

This is a loaded question and I do have a few blog posts on this topic. I will include them in the show notes so be sure to visit my website for that resource. There are many ways I can go with this, but I'm going to keep it short because I have quite a bit of questions to get through today.

Related Post: How to Make 2020 Your Best Year

The way to discover your purpose is to understand who you are. You were born with everything you need to accomplish your purpose already inside of you. Discovering your purpose is not something you find in a book or even listening to a podcast no matter how good of a writer or communicator they are. Purpose is discovered through self-awareness. Get to know yourself, understand who you are and you will unlock your purpose! 100% guaranteed.

5. What are the key metrics in business/what should I be measuring?

In business when I set my big crazy goals I don't measure things like my engagement on social media or how many people responded to my email. The metrics I use are boiled down to 2 simple categories. I measure my impact on the world and income in my bank account.

You don't have a business without any income. Everyone knows this but we sometimes try to ignore this fact. Income keeps the business going so it's a must. The second thing  I measure is impact and this is because I not only want to run a successful business, I also want to impact others around the world to live their purpose, create magic with their life, and complete their mission! Both work together hand in hand. If you don't have any impact you won't have any income and without the income, you won't have time to create an impact. So a few ways I measure how I'm doing in these areas include having goals for my:

Impact:

Email list growth
Podcast downloads

Understanding the numbers from these platforms helps me to better understand my audience and give them exactly what they need so they to go on and create greatness in their lives and businesses, see major projects through to completion, and really turn their goals into reality!

Income:

This is simple. My income is a reflection of my impact because the transformation begins with the transaction. So the impact I have on the world through my social platforms like Facebook and Instagram are great, but I don't include hem in min measurements because the ruth of the matter is anyone can read my free content, learn what to do to crush their goals and still go on to live a broke, mediocre life. However, when you decide to invest in yourself and you join me in my online program because I no longer offer 1:1 coaching you are saying I am ready to take action on this goal. I am committing to the completion of this project come hell or high water. Your transformation is in the transaction because you COMMIT and that is what gets you results.

For you the metrics might be different. You might want to measure how much your Facebook group is growing or how many followers you get on Instagram. It all depends on which platform you want to use to connect with your audience and where your audience prefers to connect with you.

6. What kind of lifestyle goals should I set?

This is a good question and I like it because a lot of people will ask about how to become a high achiever and how to crush big goals, but it all starts at home. So before I answer this question I have to ask you, what kind of lifestyle do you want? What are your priorities at home? When you answer questions like this you're identifying your priorities and this helps you to have to which lifestyle goals to set.

For me my lifestyle goals include:

My spiritual life: staying connected to God
Self-care: having fun, resting, and pampering myself
My family: being present for my kids

Your goals could include all of the above plus:

Social life
Health and fitness
Nutrition
Travel
And so on!

There really are no limits. It all depends on what you want your life to look like, who you want to enjoy your life with, and the kind of experiences you want to create for yourself. Set lifestyle goals that are aligned with your values.

7. How do I make this my most productive year?

Hit play to hear how I answered this question and to see if I answered yours! I so enjoyed creating this episode! I know you can hear my excitement. I hope you're fired up for this new year like I am! I'll meet you back here next week same time! Love you! Until next time, xo!
