The 100 Day Challenge, Day 53:
Just to re-cap where you are at in your transformational process: You have set your goals, intentions, made commitments, made a written and visual plan, and know where you want to go. Add a few positive affirmations that you will say everyday and you have an amazing foundation for moving forward.
Mindset and preparation are a huge chunk of reaching your transformational goals. Keeping your thoughts in the right place is ESSENTIAL to your success.
HOWEVER, your strong and positive mindset will do nothing more than make you feel good while your dreams quickly fade if you don’t take consistent and right ACTION. You can’t sit still and think your way to success. You need the combination of a strong mindset and action to reach your potential. It is a joint effort.
Now is the time to decide what the right actions are for you. Look for clues from others who have done what you want to do. Read about them, talk to them, take them to lunch, listen to their recordings- study them. Look for someone to mentor or coach you and have them hold you ACCOUNTABLE to what you say you will do. You don’t have to do it alone. I used to think because I am a coach I should be able to figure it out myself, but I learned (probably not soon enough!) that everyone needs a coach. I never want to stop learning and growing- what makes me think I can or I have to figure everything out on my own? Besides the fact that it is a lot more fun to have company on the way to a bigger life!
Break down your actions, set realistic time frames, set deadlines for actions and make them specific. Do your mindset work each day and follow your action plan. You are going to WIN!
Be flexible enough along the way to notice what is working/not working and change course if need be. Pay attention to the signs and people that show up in your life to support you and guide you.
Remember to experience the joy in every step along the way. It is easy to forget to look for it- but it is ALWAYS there. One of the main things I do with my clients is to help them to see the beauty in each part of their progress. Remember- if this was easy everyone would be doing it and living an extraordinary life! Just the fact that you are reading this means that you are the person who can make it happen- go do it- and if you want company along the way- sign me up!
