Goals

Vision Exercise (2023)

​​What are 5 things you value most in life?

Picture and envision your ideal life. What does it look, sound, and feel like?

What makes this vision of your life really important to you? Why do you really want to reach this vision?

Imagine yourself in the future 3 years from now, as you look back what specific goals and milestones did you achieve? (be specific)

How can your goals specifically assist you in achieving your ideal life vision and your “why”?

​​What strengths can you draw on to achieve your goals? What are you naturally good at?

What habits do you need to establish or improve to reach your goals?

What is your top priority goal to achieve in the next 90 days?

Goals

Review your plan often

Okay, so at this point you set your goals and created a plan to achieve them.

You now know what you have to do on a daily basis to accomplish your goals.

You took the time to figure it out…

What you want, and how you’re going to get there.

“How often should I review my plan?”

When you first create your plan, I suggest diving into it daily. Reread your plan and see where you can adjust things (+ / -) to make your plan more simple and relevant to you.

Since plans are constantly adjusted, they are constantly changing. That’s why we can’t wait to have the “perfect plan” to get started, because the perfect plan doesn’t exist.

Your goal grows and manifests through your plan. It’s up to you to decide on the path you take to get there by reviewing your plan on an on-going basis.

When you feel like your plan is in a solid place, scale back diving into your plan on a weekly basis to see if any adjustments are needed.

Plan. Do. Review.

Stay blessed friends!

Goals

Think big picture

What do you want big picture?

Think 5, 10, 20 years out. What’s the end of the movie look like? Think BIG. These are our Someday Goals.

Finance: this could be a net worth goal, total # of paid off rental units, etc.

Personal: this could be anything under the sun that is personal to you – mine is to help a million people live a healthier life.

Health: this could be physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual health-related. E.g.) delay / reverse an illness, cure mental chatter, heal emotions, connect with higher power.

Fitness: # of pull-ups, run x distance, compete in x amount of races / tournaments, etc.

Tools to get there

If we think ahead now, we can start to do a little bit everyday to achieve our goals.

The Life Map System will help you create the life of your dreams by prompting you to:

  • define your Someday Goals
  • break down your Someday Goals into Daily Goals

Daily Goals can be tracked via the Daily Powerlist.

No more wishing or wanting. If it’s a goal on the Life Map, it’s getting done.

Wrapping Up

Success starts with thinking big picture and using the Life Map and Daily Powerlist as tools to get there.

Goals

A little bit everyday

The little stuff adds up overtime.

You workout today, you won’t see much difference physically.

You workout today, tomorrow, and everyday for a year, you’ll see and feel the difference.

You read 10 pages today, you won’t see much difference mentally and emotionally.

You read today, tomorrow, and everyday for a year, you’ll see and feel the difference.

It’s very much choosing our path in life.

If we decide to do the little things today to get to our goals, we’ll get there overtime.

If we don’t decide to do the little things today to get to our goals, we’ll never get there.

If you do, you will.

If you don’t, you will never.

This blog reminds me of what you eat adds up.

Happy December my loves! Let’s keep rocking on our goals.

Life Map: A Goal Setting System

Writing down our goals and breaking them down into small, doable tasks is how we get extraordinary results.

Good builders don’t build without a blueprint. So why would we make the mistake of just winging life and taking whatever it gives us, when we can make actual plans and live a life of our own design?

Lifestyle by design → making our dream life a reality. It’s totally doable, ya just have to know what you want. And that’s where the Life Map comes into play!


Let’s create a Google spreadsheet. Categories going down, Goals going across.

Or just download a template of mine here 🙂


Choose 3-5 categories

What are your top 3-5 categories that you’d like to set big “someday” goals in?

  • Personal
  • Fitness
  • Health
  • Business
  • Finance
  • Romance
  • Charity


Someday goal

Next, we’re going to come up with a “someday goal” for each category. This is where visualizing what you want your life to look like comes in handy! It’s the perfect time to write out your dream life.

Once you have a someday goal for each category, let’s move on to each category individually:


5 year goal

What’s the one thing I can do in 5 years that will help me accomplish my someday goal?


1 year goal

What’s the one thing I can do this year that will help me accomplish my 5 year goal?


1 week goal

What’s the one thing I can do this week that will help me accomplish my 1 year goal?


Daily goal

What’s the one thing I can do today that will help me accomplish my 1 week goal?


BONUS: Right now goal

What’s the one thing I can do right now that will help me accomplish my daily goal?


Wrapping Up

The Life Map will keep you on track toward your goals, and will help you make big and small decisions you’ll be faced with down the road – “will saying yes to this push me toward my goals or away from them?”

The Life Map is a tool, and must be used on an on-going basis to get the best results possible. Yes that means reviewing your sheet daily 🙂

Your Life Map will be ever-evolving as you accomplish goals and replace them with new ones, so don’t get stuck on getting everything written out perfectly before taking action on your daily goals. Goals may change, even categories may change. The key is to keep up on the dailies and adjust along the way.

Take control of what you can control. Small actions lead to big results.

Commit to the Life Map and create the life of your dreams 🙂

Goals

Inner peace vs inner conflict

When our actions line up with our core values, we feel inner peace.

When our actions go against our core values, we feel inner conflict.


For example…

If I say I’m going to do something, and do it – I feel good.

If I say I’m going to do something, and don’t do it – I feel bad.

Knowing that integrity (doing what I said I’ll do, when I said I’ll do it) is a core value of mine…

I can see right away that I feel bad because my actions are not in alignment.

Moving forward, I’m going to be much more cautious of what I say yes to while putting in place things to help me fulfill my promises (reminders, alarms, google calendar, etc)


Getting to know our core values is important if we are looking to live a healthier, happier life.

When we dig deep on our core values, we change our…

  • Way of thinking
  • Actions
  • Life situation

Core values are like intentions. You write them, feel them, and work to get them done.

Ready to get to work on your core values?

Goals

Take some time off

From work and from your regular routine.

You work hard when you work. That’s easy.

But to balance life out, you gotta play hard too – with good intentions.

How can we use time off to make sure we are growing our mind, body, and soul?

We can use our time off to…

  • decompress
  • ponder
  • read a good book
  • travel / explore
  • spend time with loved ones
  • plan goals
  • create something
  • declutter

How do you like to use your time off?

I’m currently on a road trip (3 days in). I took 3 weeks off from work and am taking full advantage.

There’s a 200 mile race happening in Ohio right now that Joey is running and I’m here crewing to help keep the runners going. A twofer.

Fun stuff getting out of my comfort zone 🙂

Goals

What does it mean to know yourself?

In the left hand, we have love and peace.

In the right hand, we have pain and hurt.

Both sides are within us.

To know yourself is to know that the feelings of pain and hurt are within you as well as the feelings of love and peace.

To know yourself is to no longer get surprised when feelings of anger or sadness come up…

They’re actually expected to surface now and then, in fact anticipated.

To know yourself is to know how to attract positive energy back into your life when you are experiencing negative thoughts and feelings.

When you feel anger boil up – maybe someone’s driving slow on the road for example – are we letting the feeling of anger take over? Or are we taking a breather and letting it go?

Simply knowing both the pain and the peace are within you may give you a sense of relief.

You’re no longer fighting against the current…

You’re flowing with the tide.

Goals

Fill your space with things that inspire you to…

LEARN, MOVE, and CREATE more.

Books, plants, yoga stuff, writing desk, boho decor, crystals, incense, good music.

What inspires you?
