5 Steps to Goal Setting

It’s that time of year: we’re claiming goals, setting intentions, making big plans for 2019. I'm going to share some powerful secrets to help you actually STICK WITH your goals this year. No more “Failure February”, babe.

Are you sick and tired of fizzing out by mid January?

It's frustrating, am I right? We beat up on ourselves for missing the mark, but maybe it’s not our fault.

From business to wellness, relationships and financial …. there are so many goals we set for ourselves because we deserve MORE. But year after year, we find ourselves struggling and falling short. So let's get real on what you need to do to actually live your best life. Warning: This is not going to be your cookie cutter BS, it's time we got real on what WORKS.

Frustrated: Been there, done that. Finally, last year, I had the ah-a moment that evolved throughout the year into a movement. I FINALLY found myself achieving the goals I had in my business, my wellness and even in my relationships.  

These are 5 truths I KNOW (if you put into ACTION) are going to blow your damn mind.

  • Knowing your WHY

Simon Sinek says - “Our actions should start with WHY not WHAT”. Knowing your WHY is essential. Your “WHY” is more powerful than your “what”. Many times we fail setting goals because we actually set a ‘what’. So if I asked you - What are your resolutions for 2019?

Maybe your answer is “to lose 10 pounds”. That’s a WHAT and that has very little power.  Your WHY is where your strength waits. Using health as an example - if your goal/resolution is to lose weight, let's rework that to make it more powerful.

What does that transformation do for you? What is the emotion behind it? To reclaim your power or to get the spark back into your life? Maybe you want to get healthy to inspire/show loved ones it’s possible for them too. That WHY is your resolution. Take it from the ‘what’ - into the ‘why’.

Here are 4 steps we are going to use - the 4 Ws for successful Goal Setting -

1. What are you going to do to achieve your goals? - Whatever that WHY is or that change is, ask yourself - What will you do to achieve it?

2. When will you do it? - When will you do those action steps to achieve your goal?

3. Where will this take place? Where will you show up?

4. With who?  - Are you going to do it by yourself or are you going to do it with your partner or bff?

Here's an example of taking it out from what-ville into the powerful WHY using the 4 Ws.

Goal - If you what is to lose 50 pounds, to get in shape this year or if you want to get into size X jeans.

Reword it using the 4 Ws - Improved Goal - “I'm going to jog around the neighborhood at least 3 mornings a week with my neighbor.”

Which one feels more actionable or powerful? Which one holds more accountability for you every single day?

Because, on a Tuesday, when you are tired and unmotivated your why of “I want to lose 50 pounds this year”, has no urgency ... you have a whole YEAR to lose 50 pounds and not showing up today doesn’t seem like a big deal. But when you  strengthen your goal with your 4 Ws - “ I'm going to jog around the neighborhood, 3 mornings a week with my neighbor”  ..  and it's Tuesday + it's one of the 3 mornings + you've got a commitment with your neighbor, do you think your odds of showing up will MUCH higher?

  • Take Charge

This is something that you may be struggling with; I know I did. Goals with steps that actually let you HAVE control vs. outcomes that you possibly can't control. Think about it, how many times do you set a goal that you have no control over? I want you to set your resolutions with steps that let you have control. Stop setting you up for failure.

Going back to the weightloss example ...if your resolution is to lose 50 pounds this year - you may not have total control over it.

You can do everything right, you can show up for yourself, eat the right things and do all the workouts, but you still don't have total control. Our bodies have a mind of their own, so many things impact us - stress, sleep, hormones, your body genetics: you don't have all the control.

But you know what you DO have control over? Rewording that goal to “I'm going to walk 5 times a week and switch to healthier snacks and veggies.”.Every single day you can be a success, it's something you have control over, something that makes you successful very single day which in turn makes you more powerful.

It works the same in your business. So let's say you've set a goal - “I'm going to rank up this month” or “I'm going to hit a certain $$ or earn an incentive or a free trip this month”. Ultimately, even though you have 90% control over that, because you are a part of an organization, a team or a partnership, you don't have 100% control in most cases because there are a lot of moving pieces. So a more actionable goal that you actually have control over will be “I'm going to help 5 people in MY team achieve their goals.”  As you know success trickles up .. we can control helping others and helping others gets us where we want.

  • Try the trifacta

Research has shown that you are 43% more likely to be successful by doing these 3 steps consistently.

  • writing down your goals

  • committing to a plan of action

  • regularly sharing your progress with someone.

Doing these 3 things together is going to increase your chances of success. As you put these into motion you’ll begin to see “extra benefits” you weren’t even planning on. It’s called the Halo effect.

Halo effect Example- if your goal was to level up in your biz and you created your action plan with your 4 w’s..  instead of focusing on “ranking up” you’d changed it to - “My goal this year is to help 5 people achieve their goals this month”. Beautiful things are going to happen around you. You’re going to increase and grow relationships with those people and your team, you are going to find support that you didn't know you had, personal momentum and success are going to start pouring into you. What you put out, you get back. Your own success, income etc. will start growing,  which will make you more confident... and so in and so on.

  • Think WWASD - What would a Sloth Do?

If you can put yourself into that mindset when you are setting action steps for your goals you are going to be so much more successful.  Find the path of least resistance which will make doing the RIGHT thing the EASY thing. Doesn't that make so much sense with your own goals?

So when setting your wellness or fitness goal which action steps make more sense for your success -

  • Joining the expensive fancy gym that's 20 miles away and has all the bells and the whistles?

  • OR joining the plain Jane gym right down the road from your home … the one you pass every time you go anywhere?

Which one is going to be the most clear path to success for you? Which one do you think you are going to show up for more?

Even though the first one is fancy, instagram worthy and has all the facilities, what's it going to do for your health when you start getting tired of the drive, when you start putting up some resistance and have every excuse not to battle traffic to get there? The plane jane gym right there in your neighborhood is going to be the path of least resistance every single time.

Same thing with your business; so think 'What would a Sloth Do' and pick the path of least resistance & do it.

So if you want to level up in your biz & you hateeee doing live videos, will setting a goal of Doing Live videos every single day do any good for you? Would that be the path of least resistance or will that be an excuse for not showing up everyday? Maybe setting the goal to do one live a week will get you better results.

Always think what would a sloth do because getting to sure success is better than a 50-50 chance of shots fired & missed.

  • Fail Forward Queen aka Getting comfortable with failure

"God! I've failed so many times!". I used to use it as negative and beat up myself until finally something shifted and I realized (insert positive tone) "I have failed so many times!"  

If I wasn't moving forward or making changes I wouldn't have failed at all. You have to get really comfortable with failure this year. Yes, I'm telling you 2019 needs to be your year of failure!  Coming from the #FailForwardQueen, let me tell you, when you’re racking up failures and you are celebrating them: that means you are making changes. If you aren’t experiencing ANY  failures  I'm going to call you out and tell you that's not something to celebrate. If your failure mark is truly zero that means you are not changing, moving, growing, pushing and definitely NOT hitting goals.  Because there's no one alive on the face of this earth who's win-loss column is completely in the success. It's just not possible so get so comfortable with failure that you celebrate them.


These 5 tips are going to actually give you a REAL fighting chance at making these resolutions stick this time and getting into success. A lot of people are sharing tips and doing things by the book - setting goals, intentions & writing them down etc. - but if you don't know the strength/gameplan behind doing them then you are going to have another year of status quo.

Are Your Goals Holding You Back?

Your goal may be holding you back. 🔥👋🏼 There I said it!

It’s not the month end yet but I want to talk about something that I've seen come up so very often and
that is -- your goal may be holding you back.

As well laid as it is, as plugged in as you are; you've got it written everywhere and you've done all the things & may have proclaimed it from the Universe but it's still something that's holding you back.

When we set a goal, especially in network marketing it's always -- to achieve the next rank, ear a particular amount or recruit x number of members to your team. But we have one big goal.

For the purpose of this blog, let's take that you want to achieve a certain rank in your company.

What next? You write it down, mark the date & start working on achieving your goal.

My question to you is - on the first day of the month do you hit your goal? NO!

Do you achieve your goal by the first week? Certainly no!

Fast forward a few weeks, in mid-month have you hit that goal? Still no!

It's the last week of the month have you hit your goal now? The answer is still probably no!

What happens to your subconscious every single day that you don't hit that main goal - whether you acknowledge it or not, whether you realize it or not - every day you don't hit your big goal is dinging your subconscious. It's affecting your confidence & your mojo because every single day in the back of your mind when you don't hit that goal you feel yourself to be a failure.

Back of your head you keep reminding yourself -- i'll be a success when I hit that goal which means until you don't your subconscious takes you to be a failure.

I see it happen so often especially in this industry - you give up! You get comfortable. If you don't hit your goal mid month you feel should I be more rational, should I skip & start again next month?

You start freaking out about failing, re-set a small goal that you know you can hit easily & think of striving for the big goal next month.

You give up on your big goal by 2nd-3rd week or re-adjust it or make it more rational.

Am I right?

Doesn't it happen all the time? It happens to your, to your team & those around you.

It used to happen to me for a long time too until I came across the magic of constructing my goal backwards.

Today, I’m going to share my magic of re-constructing your goal backwards so you too can start crushing them instead of cramping them small.

But before we do that, I want you to do a gut check -- did you re track your goal this month? Did you get uncomfortable because you aren’t anywhere close to achieving your goals for December? Are you thinking of re-adjusting them to make them safer & achievable?

If your answer to the last Q is yes, then I want you to know that there’s still time & you can very well achieve your goal for December 2018. Sit down and do this -- Setting your goals backward.

It's so simple & easy that once you & your team get a hold of it, you'll see people hitting goals, staying consistent, getting the success & believing in themselves.

Take your goal for December & I want you to orchestrate it backwards. I need you to write it down & work backwards. What has to happen for that goal to become successful?

If you want to hit the next rank - what has to happen in order for that to be a success? Do other members in your team need to rank up to for you to hit the next rank? Do you need to have x number of customers? Do you need to have x amount of volume? Do you need certain training or leadership? You've got to work those steps & work on them backwards.

It needs to look like a pyramid with your goal on the top & all the steps leading to that goal to follow.

You can do it like I do by dividing it out into 4. So if I have a certain goal let's say a certain X amount of volume I want to achieve by the end of the month which is very common in network marketing - so I'll take that volume and divide it by 4.

I don't need to look at the end of the month goal or the top of the mountain, I just need to know what is it per week that I need & when I'm being real OCD, I'll even break the weekly goals into daily so I have a pulse check and know where I am. But I'm only working backwards and looking at the goals I have for the week. So for the week, is my goal to reach that top rank? No! For my goal for the first week is to take care of the path or the journey that gets me there that I worked out when I orchestrated it backwards; for the week - what is that volume that I need? For the week - what is the steps I need to take? What does my customers look like? I stay in the moment, in the week.

With week 2 - I see if I checked off all the goals I set in week 1? If no, I need to bring in the extra in week 2 but at the same time I stay in week 2. I'm not looking forward. My goal is still not that rank but the activities that are going to get me there because that makes sense.

This way you are constantly winning, you constantly have a successful mindset. Every time I check off one of the tasks that I needed to do to get me to that rank, I'm a success; I'm winning & achieving my goals.

Don't you think I'm going to stay a little more plugged into my business? Don't you think I'm going to stay a little more excited? Don't you think I might have a little more belief in myself? Don't you think I'm going to show up more constant with my customer follow ups & my team follow ups & the daily activities because I'm winning!!

You know how things are when you are on the roll, you are getting things done & you are winning -- you stay your best self.

So when you are staying in the moment & marking of the things that have to happen before that big goal - you are your best self; you are hitting them, you are slaying your goals & no longer have to re-work your goal because it's possible & because you are a success every.single.day.

I really want to challenge you guys to work on the rest of your December goals backwards & crush your 2019 goals with this approach.

So get your goal for December & then work that waterfall down.

At the top of the page you will write your goal. What is your goal?

Once you've done that divide your goal into actions & mini goals you need to tick so you can start from the bottom & work your way to the top.

Because if your ONLY goal for the month is that one big goal, you are going to be in the failure mindset all month long. Do you think you can really achieve that or any other goal with that mindset?

Break it down, chunk it up, work from the bottom to your way up.

Recap - Divide your goal over 4 weeks; if you want to divide them further into days do it! It's going to make huge difference - it's going to give you grace, it's going to be realistic & also income producing. It's also going to be duplicate-able because your team can see & do the little steps every day or every week instead of wondering how I'm going to climb up the mountain & decide to stay down in the comfort-vile.

Share the training with your team & invite them to watch it so they can learn how to set goals & crush them every month instead feeling like a failure for not achieving what they set out for at the start & then setting small goals because they feel realistic & comfortable.

3 Secrets For A Successful & Happy Life

Do you want more joy in your life?

I know it sounds like a silly Q but seriously. . . Do you want more joy in your life?

Today, I wanted to share my best 3 secrets for a successful & happy life.

But before we get into it, there’s something I wanted to share with you. Do you agree that social media is a place that shows the easy side of our lives?

On social media we take snapshots of our life, of our day, of our children, of ourselves, & share them on social media. So it's very very simple for us to make those snapshots look easy, look amazing, look positive all the time because we filter the hell out of those! This is the easy part of social media, this is the truthful part and a lot of you are living in that good enough condition - things are good enough, things are fine, things aren't bad so they are good by default & then when someone says how are you - you say I'm fine & I want to challenge you to STOP accepting good enough.

Good enough is not good enough. Being fine is not fine. I want to rattle your cage. You are worth more. You were made for more. You deserve more than that & so many of you have lost the joy & I want to help you to be happy in the moment, in YOUR moment, in THIS moment.

Being happy isn't the thing in the future, having more joy in your life isn't something you need to strive for, it's something you can have in this moment, right now, wherever you are. No matter what's going on, no matter what struggles you are having, no matter what financial hardships you are facing, it doesn't matter. Finding joy in this moment, in every moment is the secret of true lasting happiness, It's not elusive or your emotions aren't a ping pong ball; so I've bottom down to 3 steps.

Before I get into it, I want you to do an experiment. For the next 2 weeks, I want you to follow these 3 steps. Are you ready?

Let's go! 3 Secrets for a successfully happy life -

1) Assess your life

By assess your life I don't mean I have 2.5 children, I have 2 dogs, I'm married, I work here, I have this home. . . NO!

I want you to really assess your life, take a pulse of your life, take a check point of your life - how do you feel? How are you feeling your life - right now? your situation? in your moment. . .how do you feel?

Do you feel powerful? Invisible? Scared? Joyful? Overwhelmed? Exuberant? There are so many things. . but how do you feel in your life?

And more importantly than that, when you are taking a pulse of how you feel & you are accessing that life I need you to look & feel - Is how I feel a direct response of situations around me?

Are you happy because you had a good day & then the next day are you pissed off because things went bad? Meaning, are the situations around you or experiences around you dictating your emotions to where you are just a ping-pong & you totally have no control? If it's so, the next 2 steps are going to be so important for you.

Are you in control of your emotions or is the day or the circumstances are in control?

Once you access your life, take that emotional inventory, be really real & raw, no body's going to see what you write down or what you assign to your feelings except you, unless you want to share it with someone in your life. SO feel safe to say the real words.

Once you've done that we move to step 2.

2) Look at how you numb yourself.

Look at how you numb yourself every single day. Here are some instances / ways you that you might be doing - alcohol, medication, eating/indulging in food, shopping / spending money, coming home & turning on Netflix for a 10 hr binge. . . anything that causes your mind to go somewhere else to escape the situation or a feeling. How do you numb yourself?

One of my biggest numbers has been alcohol - when I'm scared, I'm stressed out, when I'm sad - "I just need a glass of wine to feel better". And a lot of you might be like - Meagan but that's normal, we are Americans or a glass of wine everyday, there's no problem there.

And there's no problem there but when the cause behind it is to numb an emotion, you've really got to STOP, LOOK & THINK! Ask yourself - "Is this something I need or is it something that's more destructive?". Same thing with food.

I'm stressed out, I feel like crap, whatever the reason may be, I used indulge in food. Let me eat yummy food or let me just eat a piece of cake that then becomes a piece of cake & a cheese cake, a piece of cake, a cheese cake & some left overs & on & on so I can get lost in this activity instead of thinking about what's coming.

Write down the things that you use to numb yourself. Maybe amazon is your number, you go on amazon & you mindlessly shop to get that thrill, that addiction, that perk, that happiness for a second to change how you feeling right now.

We're going to learn how to not go to the numbers so you are not having to fix a broken record but you are actually living in joy no matter what's going on around you! It's okay to acknowledge the things you go to for numbing yourself so you can let them go.

Look at those things so you can give them up for 2 weeks & see how you feel.

3) Find your center

Find something everyday that motivates you, find something that brings you to the center, find something that brings you back to your happy place.

Maybe that's meditation, maybe that's working out or personal development, maybe it's plugging into a podcast, maybe it's listening to a motivational speaker, maybe it's kicking ass in your biz, maybe it's going for a walk, maybe it's journal-ling, maybe it's reading a book or singing a song, whatever it is it's yours.

You've got to find something that you can do every single day to raise your vibe. It has to become a part of you, it has to become a habit that when you don't do it, you feel like there's something completely lacking.

You've got to really invest in it because here's whats going to happen. It's going to go back to number 2. So when you plug into something that gives you the spark, that gives you the happiness, that makes you feel successful or complete; something that raises your vibe so when the trigger comes that you want to do the thing that numbs you, you've got your "go-to".

And for 2 weeks you are going to plug into that thing that brings you back to your joy & to your happiness, that resets your vibe.

Here's what it's going to do to your subconscious -

1 - It's going to bring you back to your joy, you are going to be mindful of coming back to your job instead of choosing a number.

2 - It's going to show your subconsciousness that you can trust yourself. It's going to show your subconsciousness that you are in control of your emotions, not your day, not your circumstances, not how your biz is doing etc. You are showing yourself that you are truely in control of how you feel and once your subconscious can really accept that and your ego can take a back seat, you start being happy & joyful in every single moment of your life. You start being joyful right now, in this moment no matter what this moment is, you have control.

I'm not saying you'll never be sad, stressed or angry, you'll have those feelings but you'll always have joy & when you experience those things you realize that they are nothing more than just experiences. They are just moments that too shall pass.

But in that heart, you've got that powerful joy!

So I challenge you guys if you are willing to do this with me for 2 weeks -

Step 1 is assess your life and where you are in it right now & are your emotions your emotions or are they reactive to things around you? I know most of you are going to say - I'm reactive/ I'm a ping pong as people & situations around me dictate how I feel.

Step 2 is being real and figuring out what are the things you reach to to numb your emotions when your vibe is low or when you are feeling crappy?

Step 3 is deciding to no longer numb the crappy moments but to raise the vibe to that joyous state so you are no longer in numb-vile. And you believe in yourself, you empower yourself and watch it spread into your relationship, into your business, into your health, in your body & into your spiritual experience. It's going to spread into your light that you are putting into the world.

Self Care vs Being Lazy - What's the difference?

So many times we confuse the term self care with being lazy as they are surprisingly tied together. If you spend an afternoon relaxing, taking a long bath & binge watching Netflix, is it being lazy? May be... May be not!

Let’s look at the difference. . .

Being lazy means you are avoiding tasks that you should be doing where as self care is re-charging yourself so you have energy to do those tasks efficiently.

You see, self care is about taking time out to rest & taking care of your body so you can -

+ be more productive & efficient

+ take care of those around you

+ reduce stress & anxiety


Whereas, laziness is complete opposite of this. When you are lazy -

+ you are less productive

+ you don't take care of yourself & those around you

+ you are more stressed out


Everyone's idea of laziness is different. You can say if a person is being lazy or taking care of oneself by looking at them & observing their circumstances.

If you are 30yrs old, with no job, living with your parents & being supported by them financially & yet you refuse to go out & groceries -- it's called being lazy.


If you are a mom of 3 kids, working full time, going to gym, taking care of the entire family & decide to spend the Sunday watching Netflix & taking long baths because the kids are at their Grandma's -- it's called practicing self care.


So, who gets to decide if you are being lazy or taking care of yourself? YOU!

Only you can listen to your body & interpret the signals it’s giving out. Self care is listening to your body and the only person who can effectively do that is YOU! It's not being selfish, it's giving yourself an opportunity to fill your own cup before you pour into others.

Therefore next time you don’t feel like doing something ask yourself - am I being lazy or does my body needs some time off to rejuvinate?

7 Ways to Cultivate Gratitude

The best way to keep the positive energy flowing in your life is to practice gratitude.

Being grateful and giving back to the world keeps the energy of abundance flowing. You can think of it as completing a circuit. You receive your desires, your gratitude shares that energy and then it comes flowing back to you again. When you are grateful the entire world benefits!

7 Ways to Cultivate Gratitude

♥️ It's A Daily Thing

Keep your awareness high and thank people throughout your day for even those little things in life that make you smile. A sincere thanks to the person you buy your cup of coffee from in the morning or the bus driver if you take public transport to work or wherever else you can goes a long way. Since other people's thoughts also have influence on reality, if even at an unconscious level, these positive thoughts in your direction can give you a boost in more ways than one.

♥️ Re-frame

If you have a negative experience with someone, immediately challenge yourself to find something about them that you feel grateful about. This can be hard, but it is rewarding. It frees up energy wasted on anger and frustration and puts to good use. By focusing on the good people have to offer, despite their imperfections, we recognize the divinity in all including ourselves.

♥️ Fast From Negative Talk For Ten Days

Do you have what it takes to say "thank you" to the universe by not saying a negative word about anyone or anything for ten days? This is a difficult, but worthy way to express gratitude. Gossip is also barred. In the early 1900's this method was used by Law of Attraction teachers as an important part of their lessons. They credit it with creating millionaires.

♥️ Say Thank You By Volunteering

Are you experiencing abundance due to your work with the Law of Attraction? Is there money in your bank account and food in your refrigerator? Are you now in a happy relationship? A great way to thank the universe is by giving back to it. Why not volunteer at the soup kitchen or the animal shelter? Or help coach a youth sports team? No matter your choice helping the less fortunate is the finest form of expressing gratitude.

♥️ Share

The Law of Attraction becomes easier and easier to understand as you start using it in your life.
Real miracles will start to happen again and again. How many people do you know that you care about who could also benefit from these teachings?

A good first step to this is saying "thank you" to them and introducing them to this course. After that why not also act as their mentor? You could be the person that helps them find a way to totally revolutionize every single area of their life. How is that for gratitude?

♥️ Give back to the universe

It will set the stage for your next step as a reality creator! Being brave enough to say thank you will repay you again and again!

Radical Self Care - 10 ways to add more self love in your life

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think or hear the term - Radical Self Care?

If you are not familiar with the term radical, let’s skip that for a moment, will talk about it later & talk about “self-care”.

What are some things you do to take care of yourself? Something you do exclusively just for YOU?

Do you get a massage? Do you color your hair or get a pedicure? Maybe go for a spa or get some quiet time to read? Do you go shopping?

Self-care means different things for different people! As Ruby Warrington, author of “Material Girl, Mystical World” rightly puts it, self-care is a holistic practice. It’s not just limited to rose-scented Epsom salt baths (they are given!!) but a more holistic approach covering the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspect of your life/body.

Why radical?

Self-care is a radical notion for women, especially moms/wives or busy career women that are constantly judged for putting their needs first before others. It’s against the societal norms and hence it’s radical.

Here’s a list of 10 things you can do to add more radical self-care into your life and get started RIGHT NOW! No excuses. You don’t need to get extra things, you don’t need to spend any extra $$ to get started and hence have no excuses to stop you from taking action!

Ready? Let’s Dive in!

  1. Meditation -  Meditation for me is a simple exercise of breathing in & out & making time to have a pulse check with myself. You can meditate in a lot of different ways, from sitting up straight and listening to your breath or you could listen to a guided tune on YouTube or an app on your phone that allows you to quiet that monkey mind; it can also be active meditation in form of walks in nature. Whatever helps you quiet the internal chatter and listen.

  2. Eat Whole - Read it again! I didn’t say diet/ I didn’t say eat a certain way or certain food or go Keto! Focus on eating whole, healthy that makes you and your body happy. It’s a mindset shift.

    Those of you who know me, also know that I was a self proclaimed junk food queen. I still love my junk food, but when I started taking care of myself, started paying attention to my body, putting myself first, those cans of Coke stopped appealing me.
     

  3. Live in the moment -  How many of you struggle with staying in the present moment? Not worrying about tomorrow, not feeling regret over something in the past, just focused on what’s in front of you or what’s happening in THAT moment? I won’t deny, the struggle is real but you’ve got to train your mind to stay in the present rather than staying stuck on that never-ending conveyor belt of past, present, past, present, past present. You got to focus on the present.
     

  4. Move your body -  What are some things that you guys do for your body? Do you go to the gym? Do you lift weights? Do you do cardio? Do you do classes? Do you go for walks?

    I know you can list a 100 reasons why you can’t go to the gym or take a class or take time out to move your body from finances to kids, husband etc. etc. But I want to tell you baby doll they are all excuses! There I said it! You don’t need to spend $$ if you can’t to move your body. There are so many other ways like dancing your heart out, walking outdoors in nature & yoga! All you have to do is make it a priority & take time out!
     

  5. Forgive yourself - A lot of people have 2 different reactions when I say this. 1) But Meagan, what do I forgive myself for? 2) That’s ridiculous! I haven’t done anything wrong!

    If you are the reactive or the latter types, then this point is more so for you! Radical self love starts with forgiving yourself for being so harsh on yourself, setting unreasonable expectations and putting chains or barriers around yourself. If you’re regretting a bad decision you made, or if you wish you’d done something differently, or if you have a habit that you’re trying to give up and it’s hard, it’s probably because you are being hard on yourself. If reading all the pointers & thinking of taking time off for yourself makes you feel undeserving it’s because you are being too hard on yourself and you need to forgive yourself. Replace the ego with love and start working on self-forgiveness journey.
     

  6. Take Time Off - We are always running / doing / going somewhere. And in this hustle-bustle of life, it’s important to take some time off. Just retreat from the world, hang in your white flag and say - I am out!

    Some days, you’re just like, I’m not feeling it today. Maybe it’s a Saturday. Maybe you’re off work, and all you want to do is just unplug, stay in bed and watch Netflix. But we don’t always get to do it! We have kids, husband, family, chores. . . everything that needs us! But it’s okay to just say NO! It’s okay to take a day off, go in hibernation and rejuvenate yourself.

    And for the entrepreneur ladies, just like it’s important to take a day off, it’s equally essential to take a sabbatical from your electronics. Whether you are building a business, or following up with customers put the damn thing down for a few hrs. Not to mention your secondary devices like TVs, computers, gadgets etc. Give yourself some rest by getting away from the constant non=sleeping, non-ending world of social media. It’ll still be here when you’ll log in after a few hrs or even a few days.
     

  7. Epsom Salt bath - Rose scented epsom salt baths are given when it comes to self care. Right?! Just kidding. If you are not a bath person, you can always do looong uninterrupted showers or spa! Personally I love a good long epsom salt bath to raise my vibration. Sale bath not only balances your magnesium, it also affects your physiology and your mindset.

    I will simply soak myself in the bath for 20 minutes let my worries, stress, unbalanced and my funky energy all go down the drain. I visualize all the negative, clogged up energy that doesn’t serve me anymore going down the drain.
     

  8. Trust your intuition - If you are taking care of yourself, meditating, walking in the nature & connecting with yourself, you’re going to build a strong connection with your intuition and to your higher self.
     

  9. Massage - Get a massage or body scrub or spend time doing your own facial. Do something that’s a bit out of the norm, requires planning and gets you out of your comfort zone!

    Do things that you won’t usually do unless it’s a special occasion because you don’t feel deserved or worthy of splurging on yourself. Remember, you are worth of every penny and there is a way to make it happen, and every time you elevate yourself and you step up for yourself and you show up for yourself, and you do for yourself and sometimes you do a little splurge, you’re raising your vibe of what is possible for you. You’re raising your vibe of saying, Alright universe, I get it. I deserve this.
     

  10. Do what you love - Take time out to do something that you love. Be it a job or a hobby. Make a list of all the things that you love doing like activities or people that you want to be around, experiences you want to have, anything & everything that you love and that excites you. Make a list and then make it happen.
     

  11. Practice Gratitude - Bonus radical self love tip - practice gratitude. Be grateful for where you are, what you have, who you are and everyone who’s in your life right now. Your career or business, experiences, things around you. . . there’s so much to be grateful for. Become so grateful & so in love with your life that gratitude just exudes from you and becomes contagious to people around you.

Mindset Is Everything

When you think about the women you look up to the most in your life and in business, what comes to mind?

Charisma, experience, and expertise are usually at the top of the list, but would it surprise you to know that those are not the most important characteristics?

In fact, while those things do make a difference,  there’s one thing that is absolutely a game changer, and you can’t even see it.

Mindset.

It’s true. In everything you do, whether in business or in life, your mindset is the determining factor when it comes to your success and life. Without the right mindset, you will forever be attracting + working the wrong people, situations and even clients!

So if you’re really ready to manifest the life you WANT and DESERVE, you have to do some internal work. It’s time to make some changes to your own mindset.

Changing Your Attitude

One thing charismatic and personable people have in common is a good attitude. Think about it; you’ll probably never see these women you admire complaining about how the kids are sick, “again!” or that the cable repair guy is 40 minutes late, or even that the car blew a tire.

Instead, you see their expressions of gratitude in everything. If the kids are sick, they’re grateful to have a business that allows them to stay home and play nurse. If the cable guy is late, they’re grateful to have 40 extra minutes to read a book instead of watch television. And if the car died in the middle of running a week’s worth of errands, they’re happy to have found a mechanic who does great work at a reasonable price.

If you find yourself complaining—even in your head—turn your attitude around. There’s nearly always something to be grateful for, even in the worst situations. And when you can rethink and revise your attitude for the better, you’ll not only be happier, but you’ll start to attract what you actually WANT and love!

Growing Your Confidence

Here’s another thing these women you admire have in common: confidence. They believe in what they do. They believe in their ability to help others achieve the same thing. They walk with confidence filled with the knowledge that what they are about to say will change the lives of those who are listening. They don’t question or dislike who they are.

It’s not cocky or arrogant, it’s just confidence. And if you don’t have it yet, you can take steps to increase it.

Start by asking yourself, in any new or uncomfortable situation, “What’s the worst that could happen?”

Of those worst-case scenarios, look at what you have control over, and let the rest go!

So if you’ve agreed to speak in front of a small group of business owners, and your fear is that you’ll flub your speech, practicing beforehand will greatly improve your confidence.

Next, get inside the head of someone who is confident in what you’re about to do. Walk onto that stage as if you’ve been doing it for years, and not only will you feel more confident, but you’ll be more confident. You can use the “as if” attitude in everything from creating a new product to closing a sale. Whenever you feel your confidence failing, just remember to act as if you’ve done this successfully hundreds of times.

Just like how the person you’re talking to on the phone can hear a smile in your voice, and you can feel when someone in a bad mood enters the room --those around you (and the universe) can sense your mindset and respond accordingly!

Daily Habits For A Magical Morning

Everyone experiences a stressful morning occasionally. It might be that your alarm clock didn’t ring or your car wouldn’t start. Maybe you forgot the report you needed at the house or you left your grocery list on the kitchen counter.

If your mornings always feel stressful, then it’s a sign something needs to change. The good news is most morning stress can be eliminated by creating new habits. It can take a while for a habit to become routine but once it does, your morning will be so much smoother.

Here’s how you can reclaim your mornings:

💓 Prepare the night before.
A lot of morning stress can be eliminated by preparing for the morning in advance. Choose your clothes the night before so you already know what you’re going to wear. Pack your lunch and leave it in the fridge so you only have to grab it as you head out.

 💓Skip the news.
Thanks to smartphones and tablets, you can now check the news without ever having to leave the comfort of your bed. But reading or viewing the latest new stories can cause you to experience anxiety and discouragement. Instead of looking forward to a new day, you feel overwhelmed and fearful.

This doesn’t mean you have to avoid the news all day. Staying connected to what’s happening around you is important. But pick and choose what types of news you really need to hear first thing in the morning. For example, you could look over the entertainment news or sport scores but choose to skip the main headlines until later.

💓 Play positive tunes.
Create a morning playlist of music that makes you feel encouraged and play it as you’re starting your day. This will help you wake up and make it easier for you to focus on the positive. Music can also boost your productivity and creativity.

💓 Don’t check your email or social media.
Most people experience their highest energy levels after waking up. Yet the first thing you may be tempted to do is check your email and social media networks. The problem with this is your inbox and networks are often filled with “urgent” messages. These urgent messages quickly crowd out the important tasks you need to get done today. The next thing you know its noon and all you’ve accomplished is answering your email and checking social media.

To prevent this, don’t check your email or social networks until later. After an hour or two of working, take a break to check your messages. Since you’ve already tackled the important tasks today, you can devote as much energy as needed to the urgent tasks you ignored earlier.

Morning stress can be a sign that it’s time to step back and evaluate your routines. Look at what’s causing you the most stress and seek simple solutions to fix them. By doing this, you can change your mornings from stressful to delightful!
