Feeling Stressed & Anxious about your Goals Lately?

12 Mar

I write to share my experiences in hopes of inspiring others. The other day I had an experience with one of my cousins.

She was going through what I had finished going through: sickness, working two jobs, poor diet, no exercise, no energy- she was burning herself out as I did no to long ago, This was an exact reflection of what most go through in their lives to try to accomplish goals.

She had her eyes on the prize & she wanted it so bad that she was sacrificing her health for it. She said she needed time management as did I when I realized I was burning myself out.

Luckily I got something out of the beginning of Tony’s time management MP3’s that have helped me cope and manage my stress levels- which is to write all the to do’s under outcomes. (I’ll explain this further on, keep reading!)

I also had two mentors/coaches tell the same thing right around the same time: “Put yourself first”. Up until this day I still thank Brandon & Atlas for reminding me. Since I’ve put this into practice I’ve been much happier working and paying bills because I know that when that paycheck comes in, I’ll get rewarded!

Going back to my cousin, that night I had told her that she needs to dedicate one day to herself out of the week where she does absolutely nothing.

Mine is today and I’ve been home all day watching movies & healing from this cold. Feeling good enough to write this week’s blog post.

I also told her to not be discouraged if she is sick or out of energy. To get right back up again. Even though I have this cold and can’t work out, I’m still eating clean and have my weight loss goals in mind. When I heal Ill bounce right back up again and weight train.

It about preparation & reading up on how to make yourself better even when life throws things at you that can delay the process. Sometimes we become impatient because the results we want don’t happen as quick as we want and so we get anxious.

What’s provided me with peace of mind has been writing my to do’s into action steps for one outcome, so that when i think of my goals & progress I just think of one out come and not overwhelm myself with all the to do’s.

Your goals are your outcomes. Your to do’s are actions steps. Write them down into an outline.

Use this as an example:

Outcome 1- get a’s n b’s in all classes.
Action Step 1-
Action Step 2-

Outcome 2- have enough energy through out the day
Action Step 1-
Action Step 2-

Outcome 3- get prepared for _________
Action step 1- volunteer

Outcome 4- have enough money for _______
Action step 1-
Action step 2-

Outcome 5- save up $_____ by _____ for vacation.
Action step 1-
Action step 2-

So don’t feel stressed & anxious about your goals. Be patient and know that this outline is your peace of mind, your validation that as long as you are completing one action step a day for each outcome, you are getting closer to your goals!

I’ve done this and I look at my outline every week to remind me to stay on track and not lose sight of my goal. So for you I wish the same! Share your experience and let me know how I could help!

Striving for CANI

8 Jan

Constant
And
Never-ending
Improvement

Striving for better every day. Achieving one thing daily is constantly improving.
It’s either uphill /or downhill \ no plateau —.
If we can improve on one thing in each area of our lives we’d achieve balance which would mean happiness and fulfillment.

The hardest thing to master in life is balance. we all want quick results & answers because we live in such a high paced world with things on demand that patience is really becoming hard to sustain.

Achieving balance means having time to dedicate to all areas of our lives. Balance requires patience because focus is divided here for taking longer to achieve. Once it had been mastered our lives will feel complete.

That is my mission. As most of you may already know I aspire to be a life coach. Im working on mastering balance so I study life. I’m a student of life who will one day transform into a life coach. I do this because by helping myself first ill be in better shape to help others. In order to be of good service and help others the right way I need to have mastered what I talk about & put the concept of balance to practice.

As the weeks have passed by I’ve posted things in social media about setting goals in areas of life such as

Health
Career
Relationships
Money
Growth
Fun/adventure

I’ve talked about setting one year goals in each area, creating a dream board.

I’m focused on is health. My goal is to lose 20lbs by March 2013.

I’m also making space for my career by writing on this blog once week.

Working on a relationship with someone who has similar values and is helping me grow, and keeping a close bond with my family and friends.

Growth: I’ve signed up for the adopt a meal program and other organizations to contribute and grow once a week.

Money: I have 3 interviews lined up tomorrow and I’ve been looking into short term investment options like CDs so I can get some ROI by July 2013.

Fun/adventure: I’m finally getting to step outside my comfort zone and exploring Miami for the first time ever.
I’m taking road trips and visiting different cities in the weekend.

The goal is to be an example of balance. Always make space and room for all areas of your life for maximum fulfillment. When we take the time to prioritize ourselves, set goals, take action, measure progress, and stay consistent success is around the corner
