What’s On Your Horizon?

Horizon pic cropTomorrow is my birthday and it’s a big one.  I turn 40!  Birthdays are great. It’s a chance to celebrate and set my intentions for the coming year. Kind of like New Years resolutions, but more fun. To me, New Years is for those things I “should” do like eating better, working out more, investing more, etc. Birthdays are a chance to dream and create something that inspires me.

The creating part is always fun. I journal, go for walks and draw out pictures for my vision board. Maybe it’s an amazing vacation with my family, a new program for my business, or a new car. Those of you that know me, know that I am a car fan with a special love for Maserati’s and Aston Martin’s

Once I have created my vision, it’s time to make it happen.

For a lot of people, the dreaming part is easy. It’s what you do next that gets tricky.

Our thoughts play games with us. We go from fired up beyond belief to thinking: we don’t know how, it will take too much time, it’s too risky, etc.

We falter in our conviction, the clock is ticking, nothing has happened yet and we give up, vowing to rock it twice as hard next year. But do you really want to wait another year to create something amazing?

Three things that help me each year are:

  1. Declare what you want out loud. Don’t keep your goals a secret. There is power in putting your stake in the ground.
  2. Take one small action each day to get you there. The compound effect works for success just like interest in the bank
  3. Get support along the way. No one said you had to do it alone.

Here’s how that looks for me this year with one of my goals that I am most excited about:

My big goal for this next year: Grow my coaching company so that I can impact more people. It melts my heart to see someone get the light back in their eyes and realize “I can do this”. To see someone go from feeling frustrated, stuck, overwhelmed or scared to feeling excited and empowered. To stop beating themselves up for what they are doing wrong and realize what they are doing right. To feel the fear and do it anyway. I would be the happiest girl in the world to spend the rest of my life helping others this way.

My actions that I take each day: Each day I commit to “publishing something” to support my goal. Maybe it’s teaching a class, writing a blog post, writing a new class, or sending an encouraging email to someone. It all supports my goal of empowering and motivating others and moves me forward

My support systems include my coach, Rhonda, who encourages me, pushes me and holds me accountable / my husband, Gary, who has always been my biggest fan and my assistant, Kristan. Our house could not run without her.

What are your goals?  You know, that big one you are afraid to tell anyone about because it’s so big it freaks you out. Or worse yet, what if you put it out there and it doesn’t happen? How are you going to get there?

One of the biggest things I see people struggle with is implementation.

The big vision is easy, it’s the next step that is tricky. If you are there right now, I’m excited to share with you my new Action and Implementation Guide.

It’s the 5 steps that I use to accomplish any goal or project. And if you purchase between now and Sunday, use the code “Action” for $10 off. My way of sharing the birthday love.
