There is this simple tradition that has meant a lot to me over the past few years. My husband and I, each of us being business owners, step away from everyday life for a little bit (often just a few hours) and we ask ourselves a few simple questions...
“Where do we want to be in a year?”
“What milestones do we want to hit in our businesses?”
“How do we want to grow in the new year?” Although business growth is exciting, the reason it has become a really invigorating time to my heart is because we don’t stop at business growth. In fact, we start with our family as a unit.
Where do WE want to be a year from now?
Where do we believe GOD is taking us in the new year?
What things can we do better than we have done before?
What are some areas that need some love right now?
As first-time parents, I anticipate this year having some extra layers to it as we think through what legacy and example we are creating.
One of my favorite parts of coaching is helping someone break down this massive thing of “growth” and help them see how it very practically fits inside their lives.
That’s why, for the first time, on Friday, December 14th at 7 pm CST, I am going Live on my Facebook page and coaching on creating your personal vision plan for 2019.
If you are alive and breathing, you could use a vision plan - brought down from that high and lofty “goal” to a set of actionable steps that will help you make the new year something new, something meaningful.
I’d love to invite you to join me - so set a reminder on your calendar, show up with pen and paper, and let’s make 2019 our best year, our most intentional year, yet.
Stop calling it a dream og start making it a plan 💕
Og hvordan gør man så lige det? Ingen anelse, men jeg ved hvad har virket for mig - og det tæller vel også lidt 😉
✨ Ingen drømme er for store eller for små. Du må aldrig tro, at du ikke kan nå din drøm? For ved du hvad? Dine chancer for at din drøm lykkes, er lige så stor som alle andres ✨
For et år siden festede jeg hver weekend, indtog meget store mængder alkohol, spiste alt andet end hvad man kan kalde sundt - popcorn eller Chips til aftensmad var ikke en sjældenhed 🙈
Men det var sidste år! Min drøm og mit mål blev bikinifitness og scenen i 2019 🌟
Jeg har endnu ikke indfriet min drøm, men jeg er satme godt på vej ☺️ og jeg har en plan for hvordan jeg kommer i mål, hvem der skal og kan hjælpe og gjort op med mig selv hvad jeg er villig til at give afkald på - og alene dét i sig selv er en del af planen 💖
Hvad er din drøm og hvad er din plan? 💁🏼♀️
Cookies and Milk kinda day over here. Trying to get my thoughts together for how I want this group class to go at one of the local Holistic Health Centers.
Yeah... cookies /= holistic living... but cookies do = real life.
Two best buddies since birth, with a map, just planning their next adventures! 🗺 They took it very seriously to cover as much as possible in one day! What is your travel style? Do you plan every detail in advance or do you like to see where the adventure takes you? Do you like to pack your days full and see as much as you can, or go at a slower pace and take it all in?
Dealing with setbacks and overcoming adversity
Everyone has a plan 'till they get punched in the mouth. Mike Tyson
A setback is a reversal or check in our progress, whilst an adversity is a difficult or unpleasant situation.
During our life I think it is only natural to expect setbacks and adversity’s. I don’t think it’s a case of ‘hoping for the best, but planning for the worst’, that seems a bit drastic. Yet acknowledging that stuff can go wrong, our health can be affected and situations can arise with friends and loved ones doesn’t hurt. Let’s inoculate ourselves against setback and steady the ship for adversity.
We’ve all been in that situation at work when a project we are working on has encountered a setback. It’s probably something we can deal with, that’s why they employed us right? You can probably answer this better than I can. What do you do when you can’t resolve an issue?
I had a situation at work which I still find difficult to talk about today. It seemed that I could do nothing right in the eyes of my superiors. If I did make a mistake it was blown out of all proportion along with the punishment. Whilst some of my peer group got away with much bigger and deliberate transgressions. I felt that I had no one to turn to a part from another colleague who was being treated in a similar manner to me. What I needed was a mentor, someone who I could speak to with honest constructive criticism. I soon moved on from that role, it took me months to get over that experience. I learnt from that experience, not because of those people but in spite of them.
For me professionally this was a setback in my career. But I did get over it and I did move on.
When adversity hits.
