Destined or Determined

We see someone accomplish a goal that we want, and instead of just being happy for them…we think other thoughts. Thoughts like:
Well she is just naturally gifted.
Everything always goes her way.
She just has the golden touch.
She doesn’t have the same struggles I do.
She is just destined for greatness.
While these thoughts may not be bad of themselves, what we are really adding to the end is…BUT I’M NOT.🤦‍♀️

Instead, what we don’t want to admit, is maybe she is more DETERMINED than I am on achieving the goal. Maybe she didn’t procrastinate when I did. Maybe she talked with more people than I did. Maybe she worked harder than I did. 🤷‍♀️

If you are already working as hard as you can towards your goal, and you are determined to achieve it, then just put in the time needed! It will happen for you too! And in will be cheering you in at the finish line! 😍🎉

Determine Your Future

What are you thinking right now? 🤔

Good or positive thoughts?💬
I’m going knock off things from my to do list!
I’m going to finish getting the decorations done tonight.
I am brave enough to go after my dreams.
I am going to lose those last 10 lbs.

Bad or negative thoughts? 💬
I never have time to get anything done.
No one ever listens to me.
I never have any self control so why bother trying to lose those last 10 lbs.
My dreams will never come true… they will eventually fade and I’ll just have to get over it.

It’s time to #choosejoy. It’s time to take control of you…your thoughts and your actions. You were fearfully and wonderfully made! It is intended for you to live life abundantly! The choice is yours. Do something! 💪💯😍

Determine to Succeed

Does life always go exactly as you plan? No!

Why, because you and other humans are involved. You only have control of yourself! And then sometimes, we just make bad choices, we waste our own time, or we listen to others that should have no influence over our life.🤷‍♀️

However, we can make the choice the pick ourselves back up and keep going. We can do something, anything big or small, to help us continue towards our goal. We can stay determined to succeed! 💪

But it starts with you. Your choice! 💯

Last 90 Days Check In

Last90Days check in!

October 1st, I started the challenge inspired by Rachel Hollis where you intentionally live the last 90 days of the year as intentionally as you would the first 30 days if the new year. Along with a gratitude and dreams journal, we track our 5 to Thrive; 5 daily activities which includes dining more water, moving your body for 30 minutes daily, and giving up one food that does not bless your body.

Richard and I have given up carbs for the 90 days and are following the keto diet. This has been an easy diet to add to our premium nutrition that we get daily from our 3 simple steps. I’m excited to say that in the last 60 days, I’ve lost 24.8 lbs! 💪

While I don’t always complete all 5 items each day, I have been able to stick with my diet every day even through Thanksgiving! One more month of holiday celebrations, and I’m happy to have a strong habit built going into December. 😍

Moving Forward

Do you know when it is time to change? 🤔

For six years I did business process improvement. During this time, I would evaluate a position’s duties and work with the person or department to help make the task more efficient. It was important to work hand in hand with the employee so the changes would be accepted when the time came.

When I sat with someone, I would ask them, What do you do? WHY do you do it that way? I made sure they knew there was no right or wrong answer, that I was just learning the process. However, if they didn’t know WHY they did a certain task process, or if the answer was, That’s the way we’ve always done it, then the process was open for negotiations later. Why negotiations? Because without their buy-in and acceptance of the change, then it would never change. 🤷‍♀️

It’s time to evaluate HOW you are doing things in your daily life. WHY do you do it that way? HOW is it working for you? WHAT could be changed? Can you ACCEPT the Change?💭‼

Change is hard, but Change is good. Personal growth comes from change. Strength and Knowledge grows with change. Freedom and Flexibility can come from change. Don’t be afraid, it’s time to make the change! 💪⏰😍

Evaluate Your Goals

Have you evaluated your goals to make sure they are your goals? 🤔

I’m not talking about your dreams, but the actual goals to achieve in order to make your dreams come true. Are they yours? Or do they belong to your boss, your team leader, your director, your spouse, your friend, etc? Is the goal something you just think you should be going after because that is what is expected of you? Has your goal changed, but you are afraid to make the change?🤷‍♀️

Use these last few months of the year to evaluate your goals, the direction God wants you to go, and make the necessary changes if needed. Change is hard, but change is good. If your goals haven’t changed, then chase after them hard with discipline and belief! 💪

There are options available to you to help you achieve YOUR goals… some may be in an unfamiliar package, but it is worth checking out! Message me if you want to hear more about these options! 😍

No Distractions

What is distracting you today from achieving your goals? 🤔

Sometimes, I feel like my biggest distraction is laziness. 🤷‍♀️ But is it really laziness or procrastination due to fear? Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, or just fear of rejection?

Another distraction from me is busy work, that while necessary, it’s not income producing activity. 🙄

Last week I discussed scheduling my priorities. So on my list if daily activities, I must schedule my IPA items first, and then I can do the other stuff last if there is time left. I’m in charge of goals to achieve my dreams, but I must remember to stay focused on my calling! 😍

Listening Skills

This morning, I was listening to a leader speak about the art of listening, and this question came to mind. Does the way someone talks, impact the way you listen? 🤔

If someone has an accent, do you listen differently? Because southerners speak slowly, are they dumb? No. Because someone has a northern accent, are they mean? No. Because someone is speaking English as a second language, are they clueless? No. Do Californians speak so fast that there is no way they are listening to us since they are already forming their next thought? No.

Yet, as we listen, are we internalizing those thoughts, and therefore it is affecting the way we listen? Daily, even as adults, we must continue to work on our listening skills. Listening is the second part of communication that often is overlooked… yet it’s a critical part! 🗣👂

I want to be a good listener.😍

Fight for Happiness

Are you stuck with the feeling that this is just the way life is and nothing will change? 🤔

What if you change? What if you start to fight back? 💪

I used to feel that way. I was a spectator in my own life, watching life happen around me instead of participating. Four years ago, I decided that was enough! I tried something new because I trusted a friend, and I figured what did I have to lose? I fought for my quality of life, I fought for my happiness, and I fought for my family. I now get to participate in life, and I now choose joy for my life. 😍

It’s a joy to help others now. I’m growing and I hope you are too.🤗
