The past couple of months have flown by. I hope you give yourself time to pause and reflect on your achievements over the past six months!
Did you immediately think of everything you still need to get done? I know I did, but I quickly switched my mindset by journaling a page of positive reflections (it's my positive Polly persona, who doesn't give the negative Nancy persona the time of day).
I reflected on my clients' kind words of gratitude for helping them achieve their goals. I thought about the people I lean on for support and accountability because I'm not superwoman, and I, too, need the support of a council of advisors to run my business. My council of advisors helped me find my balance and realigned me to my aspirations.
I'm looking forward to the coming months as I open my schedule to working 1:1 with clients. I've missed the 1:1 connection and can't wait to enter my Brand Strategist and Mentor superpower.
- What dreams, aspirations, and goals do you want to achieve in the next six months?
- Are you ready to break free from limitations, eliminate the constant cycle of procrastination, self-doubt, and lack of motivation and unleash your potential in 2023?
Here are my five tips to help you achieve your goals
- Create a plan:
To kick off your journey towards achieving your vision, begin by jotting down the overall idea and breaking it into smaller, achievable objectives. Next, determine the resources required to accomplish each goal and establish a timeline for their completion.
- Take action:
After devising a plan, it's time to put it into action. It's crucial to allocate time daily to achieve your goals and remain consistent.
- Stay focused:
Getting distracted by other tasks or projects is easy, but staying focused on your vision is essential. Remind yourself of your goals and why you're working towards them.
- Celebrate successes:
It's important to acknowledge and celebrate every milestone, no matter how small, to stay motivated and focus on your goals.
- Ask for help:
If you need assistance, don't hesitate to ask for it. Reach out to friends family, join a group, or find an accountability partner who can support you in reaching your objectives.
Take a 30-minute break from your desk, grab a journal, and write down everything holding you back from launching your product, service, or online course.
