Five Goal Setting Mistakes To Avoid in 2020

The sky's the Limit

No Regrets in 2020

A surefire way to avoid regrets in 2020 and achieve significant changes is to break all the standard goal-setting rules you may have followed in the past.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing, again and again, expecting a different outcome. 

If you intend to create significant life-changing actions and results in 2020, I dare you to think outside of the box.  Think The Sky’s the Limit!  How different would your life be if you achieved all that you said you would at the beginning of each year? 

Take a moment and remember when you first set out to make an impact on the world with your passion and ingenuity!  When you believed whatever you wanted you only had to go for it.   The opportunities were limitless, the excitement of what was possible kept you awake at night, made you bound out of bed in the morning with the anticipation of what the day would bring.    Fast forward 3 – 5 – 10 -20 years.  How is it going?  Are you just getting by? Are you trudging through your day with little to no excitement? Are you doing the same thing as before with nothing new on the horizon?  I dare you to break out of your annual routine and stop making these mistakes when setting your goals or intension for 2020.  

Top 5 Goal Setting Mistakes that keep you and your business status quo

  1. Set too general of a goal.  Example:  I will make 10K more than last year.  That leaves you wondering how you’ll reach it and no clear path on the steps it takes to do so.  The same example applies to health and fitness or even personal development goals. 
  2. Accept past successes or failures as the ultimate truth of what you can achieve.  Do not assume that if you failed before, you will again.  If it’s something you really want, find a new way to approach it and try again.  If you succeeded in the past are you accepting that as the hight of your limits?
  3.  Compare yourself with others.  No one can set the bar for you!  There is always someone worse or better at whatever you are attempting to achieve. 
  4. Telling yourself you have it clear in your head.  To solidify your intention it must be written down.  Doing so makes a powerful statement of what you Will Achieve.  If it’s not written down, it’s incredible how easy it is to avoid, forget or make excuses as to why you didn’t do it.    

Here’s a powerful way of creating your goals.  Start with realistically Dreaming of what you want to accomplish.  Then GO BIGGER!  Yes!  Hit that idea out of the park!  Begin brainstorming how this could happen.  Don’t worry about why it can’t happen, pull yourself and/or your team/family together and start brainstorming ideas on what you CAN do!  Not what HAS been done or worse yet, what OTHERS have done.  Believe you can achieve it with all your heart!  Because You Can!

How much money do you want to make?  What projects do you finally want to get done this year?  What new idea do you want to give life too?   Dream it!  Believe it!  What does it look, feel, taste, smell like?  How will this change your life?   Measure and celebrate along the way, every milestone, and make 2020 a year to remember. 

When you participate actively every day with intention, belief, and joy, the life you want will manifest itself.   I wish you an exhilarating, productive, and lucrative 2020!

Kause & Effect, A Podcast

The Inner Journey to Success in Life and Business

Creating a podcast has been a goal of mine for nearly two
years now.  Like so many other things in
life, the fear of actually doing it was so overwhelming, I found myself doing
any number of things, besides producing my much-desired podcast.

I realize now, I was not yet aligned with creating the right
message to share with you.

We all have "Goals," we try and try to
achieve.  Yet, in all honesty, dance
around it, f!#k it off and finally put it on the back burner.  It does not matter if it's dreaming of
becoming a coach, increasing your sales, improving health, personal growth, or
starting a business.  We all do it.

WHY DO WE DO THIS!?

It's simple.... Our Soul knows we are not aligning with what
we are meant to do.  Once we are aligned,
things simply begin to fall into place.

That brings me to my podcast!

With every business coaching, training, or public speaking I
do, I speak from the heart.  I do not
just stick to training strategy, I include the emotional intelligence and
alignment that must coincide with all endeavors.  My physical audience seems to seriously eat
that up and engage with the concepts and training.

But I always dance around what I know to be the truth.  I often end up talking energy, meditation,
quieting the mind, releasing ego, being in the now and all that....  but only after I have been working with an
audience or client for a while.  If they
are receptive, I slowly introduce the spiritual or internal journey to
them.   I have found that those who are
more open to the inner journey have the greatest success.

So, that's what my new podcast Kause & Effect is about!  The spiritual journey to success in life and business.  We embark on a journey to discover what your spirit is really up to.  This journey is the most vibrant and rewarding adventure you will ever experience.  Becoming aligned with your true purpose will help to manifest the exact life you desire.   Whether that means financial abundance, satisfaction in business, or pure happiness with self and in relationships.  There are no judgments, and there are no requirements on this journey.  You won't have to eat tofu or practice yoga or meditate for two hours every day.  Your journey is yours to discover and yours to experience.  We are each on our own path.  This podcast is simply to inspire you, give you insight, tools, and resources to embark or continue your own journey.

Below are several ways you can listen to and follow my new podcast.  I use Podbean at this moment, as time goes on and I gain more experience, I may spread out and upload to other formats, but for now, here is where you can find Kause & Effect.  (Oh, and yes, I am uploading the audio files to YouTube also!  Just for you hardcore YouTube viewers.)

Our True Purpose

Thinking of how I want to connect with my higher more authentic self and align with others.

My business is a powerful manifestation of my desire to reach the highest potential we each have and to manifest a life worth living.

Again and again, I see how reaching our highest level and taking steps to allowing our true selves to emerge through living and truly authentic life is indeed a daunting prospect.

Our dreams and aspirations are to have a purpose beyond paying the bills and being accepted by those in our circle.  Stepping out beyond the current role is one of the hardest things a person will do.

From birth, we are taught who we need to be, do and have in our life, which is based on our teachers being shown what to be, do and have in their lives.   But that is not the core or purpose of our existence.

We look for happiness under every rock we have thrown in our direction, and the real truth is that we cannot find happiness Out There under any rock or group consciousness.  Our true authentic, happy selves are right here in the center of our being.  Which is different from everyone else’s truth.

Perhaps happiness comes from serving others or being doing and having a relationship with our higher power or connecting with nature in some way.

If we do not slow down, stop the daily distractions like TV, Social Media, mind-altering substances, gossip, sex or any other distractions, our true authentic identity will not reveal itself.    It’s impossible to find clarity and happiness out there when it resides inside each and every one of us.

To uncover or reveal that true nature or authentic self is our purpose in life and once revealed to share it with others.  If in the meantime we can make a living while doing so, all the better.

Live your true authentic life, and your true authentic happiness and abundance will manifest.

blessed be,

Change Your Life

Reilley - Are you ready?

Would it change your life if you had a coaching business that gave incredible lifestyle and you were really helping people?  Of course the answer would be yes.

But getting a coaching business off the ground is harder than those slick sales webinars make it sound, right?

Getting good clients with money to invest is hard.  There’s tons of competition and it’s not going to get any easier.  No doubt this is one of the hardest things you will do in your life, and anyone telling you it’s easy is lying. Continue reading “Change Your Life”

Three Coaching Business Myths

Puppy noes in paw

There are folks out there who can help. But if you think there is a quick fix to a six-figure business, you must also be the type that believes a pill will make you skinny and physically fit with no effort on your part.

3 Coaching Business Myths:

1) A 6 Week Program will make you six figures

2) Following just one step will turn it all around

3) “How I made six figures in 3 months!”  But fail to mention it took eight     years to get there.

CRAWL – WALK – RUN

When I was first learning Sales – my mentor told me it’s just like growing up.  Crawl – Walk – Run!  There are no shortcuts, and there is no Magic Word to make you a successful salesperson.  You must put your time in and learn.

That does not mean you cannot start your coaching practice soon.  What it means is to have realistic expectations and not over commit to your success timeline.  Put your toe in the water, then work your way up to your knees, float around a little, swirling your arms, legs and then start to swim.  Someone probably helped you to learn to swim, they held on – waited for you to get better and then slowly let you go.  Right?

YOU MUST learn to Crawl – Walk – Run in whatever endeavor you start.

You didn’t dive into the deep end of the pool and start swimming, did you?  It was step by step, learning the process – learning the how – then experiencing the ups and downs of the process.  The person who was helping you finally let go and you did it by yourself.   Over time, you may have discovered different ways to swim that was your unique style.  That is the Crawl-Walk-Run process.

Roadmap

It’s the same with starting your coaching practice.  Some of us learn faster than others.  Some will become Olympic Athletes, and others will enjoy swimming on a regular basis, but never become a Gold Medal Winner, they merely enjoy swimming and make it part of their life.

I have a roadmap for you to follow, to start your coaching practice.    Consider it arm floaties or training wheels for just starting out.  I will help you take your very first steps to creating the proper mindset to go for it!   Kinda like screwing up the courage to jump off the high dive.  This roadmap will help you do it and show you how you can get the courage to leap!

Why Clarity?

Confused mind is confused thoughts

I am asked all the time “How do I find focus and do what I need to do to make shit happen?” The easy answer is gain clarity. Why Clarity? I believe if you do not understand why you want to do a “thing” or what you expect to give or to get out of it you will not be able to take the very first steps to accomplish it. You must have extreme clarity first.
