The holiday season is officially HERE! This can either be the BEST time of year or the most stressful, right?! I want to help you make this the BEST end to the BEST year of your life to date! Let’s commit to setting and crushing some goals no matter if it is in your everyday life or your business or both! A new month means new opportunities and a clean slate. It does not mean that you throw all care to the wind and say- I will start in the new year? I am sitting at my desk right now with my planner and notebook next to me about to set some strong goals and I’m going to share with you exactly what I do and how I do it! And how for sure- YOU can do it too!
Tip #1- DO NOT WAIT. Start NOW.
After I became a wife and mom I really stopped thinking ahead of what ‘today’ will bring. I went on autopilot- taking care of my husband, the house, the kids and LIFE! Can you relate? That was just what happened and I thought that it was kind of the norm and I lost ME.
Well, a few years ago I hit rock bottom. I was in a depression, I felt like I was in the dark and just couldn’t find my way out. I was being suffocated with the stress and responsibilities of day to day life, debt was growing and all of this was taking a toll on my marriage!
Enough was enough!
So- I decided that I was ready to change. I WANTED to change more than I wanted to stay the same in my own bad cycle!
I didn’t understand goal setting when I first started! It felt weird to me!! But, I went to this website that I had heard of called www.30daypush.com and just STARTED!

So- what else do you need to do?
IDENTIFY YOUR PRIORITIES.
My FAMILY! 1st- always. Faith, my business and with that comes my fitness and health which is a priority too. Health to me is mental, physical and emotional health! They all align when we make them priority.
CHOOSE 3-5 GOALS IN EACH AREA OF PRIORITY.
Your goals have to really have meaning. So take some time to really think about what you want to achieve!! And make some very attainable and some can be a few that take a little longer than a month or two to achieve.
What do you want!! Write it down and the kicker is here- PUT A DATE NEXT TO IT! A date that you want to crush that goal by! If there is no date next to it, it means it’s just a dream! A goal has a time frame.
Trust me- it’s crazy- but when you are working towards them with intention then you are going to achieve them.
Here is an example. Most people want to lose 10 pounds- right? It’s not a crazy goal- it is totally doable. The average healthy weight loss is 2- 2 1/2 pounds a week- so losing 10 pounds in a month is a realistic goal!!
ACTION STEPS TO REACH YOUR GOALS.
So find some kind of accountability coach or a friend that’s going to hold you accountable and motivate you to reach your goals. If you are clueless about where to start- I am here to help. Email me and we can get you going in the right direction.
For example for a goal of exercising 5 days a week plan that out on your calendar for when you are going to accomplish this activity for each week of the 30 days. It has to be a meeting that you do not cancel on. You wouldn’t cancel a meeting with your boss, so you are NOT going to cancel your workout.
You need to get used to really celebrating your progress and just being happy that you are moving forward. CELEBRATE the small and the big achievements!!!! Find the positives always!
