A 2-week getaway to Singapore! For 2 years that’s what she planned. All with the bells and whistles of flight, hotels, cruise, and cultural site visits along the way. She did it with the spirit and taste of satisfying dreams.

But how many of us actually do that? Create our goals, plan it, save for it, and not deviate. Hers was a vacation to a far away land. Ours may be Entrepreneurship, a job, career, exercise, home ownership, writing, starting a family, and more. Often we start off with a bang! Then we stall. Procrastinate or give up.

Marcel Schwantes shared Article that Science Says Only 8 Percent of People Actually Achieve Their Goals. Here Are 7 Things They Do Differently. Of the 7, I like 5. Here I share my favs:

Things Done Differently

  1. They begin with the end in mind
  2. They build a support system around them
  3. They set specific and challenging goals
  4. They recognize when they are procrastinating
  5. They don’t multi-task

How about you? How do you stay on track to achieve your own goals? Do share. We’d love to hear.

Write. Something Old. Something New…

Write. Just Write. Write about something old, something new. Twist it. Turn it. Then spool it into something you.

We often ask the question why some people succeed when others don’t. It seems there is a missing element. Something we lack. The truth is that you can succeed at whatever you dream about;  whatever you put your mind to achieve. Know that you don’t have to go it alone. Here are some reasons why people hire a coach to improve their lives and their business.

  1. People hire a coach to help put systems in place (e.g. time management, social media engagement, managing products, and managing people)
  2. When they know what to do but not how to do it
  3. Feel Stuck , confused
  4. When you want to make more money …want to do what you want to do
  5. When they know it’s time to break free
  6. When they figure out they can’t do it alone
  7. Need resources and don’t know where to find them (financial, legal, staffing, marketing, etc)
  8. When going through a period of transition. when they don’t know what is relevant (been away long)
  9. When fallen behind on their goals, dreams, and aspirations

Feeling confused and need help to navigate to the next step in your career or business? Lets connect.

The Sun Will Rise….

Your Journey will always be filled with ups and downs, peaks and troughs. But keep going. There will always be the Sunrise. Stay Focused.

Watching Your Dream UnFold…

Horizon

I’m moving and they are renovating the space that I will be moving into. As they work, everyday I pass by and secretly take a peek at the progress of the work. It brings such joy and satisfaction to watch the place come to life. The same is true as I watch other dreams come true. I love HGTV – the home and Garden show where they have Fixer Upper, the Property Brothers and the others. It’s very hard for the contractors to keep their prospective homeowners at bay because they like to watch their dreams unfold.

That is true of all of us. Whether it is watching a business grow, a career come to life or a child get married. The Royal family is a sure example as millions watched around the world as a fairytale came to life. A ‘normal’ everyday American girl get married to one of Britain’s most eligible bachelor …Prince Harry.

Retrospective. So never give up on your dreams. At times the journey will get hard but keep plodding and watch that vision come to life. You will reap that enduring joy that it brings.

What’s the dream that you’re waiting on? Do share. We’d love to hear.

Cheers!

Goals: Don’t Wait. Don’t Look Back.

“Run love! Run!” Those were the words I shouted to my pre-schooler when she was running track on her first school’s sports day. We found out that she had talent very early. She started running and when she discovered that she was way out ahead of the other runners, she stopped to look back for the other kids in the race. And if that was not enough, she decided to wait on them to catch up with her. It was a hilarious sight! Indeed it was no surprise when she became Famous for this little feat.

But aren’t we a lot like that at times? We are making huge progress towards our goals, dreams, and aspirations, then we stop. It seems too good to be true. We wait and before realize it, we have missed our path and go off track.

As we approach mid-year, how have you been progressing towards your goal? Personally, I am progressing well in some areas but in others as life’s busyness steps in, I stagnate and fall behind. Thank goodness for my awareness that keeps me going.

What about you? How have been progressing? Do share. We would love to hear.

Cheers!
