Hi There Karena - how have you been?

I want to share a small piece of my heart with you today. 

Did you know that even coaches, mentors, consultants, etc., such as myself, are still working in progress, and we all still mix things up at times?

Feeling overwhelmed and wanting to give up is a genuine struggle.

Feeling defeated can compound it even more.

Here are a few of my thoughts as it relates to feeling overwhelmed.

  1. Having a clear path to where you want to go is going to be critical.

  2. Reframing your self-talk creates a different reaction.

How have you passed through this stumbling block in the past?

I’ve been trying new things lately because it’s time to move forward in life, and I want to share a few of them with you:

1.  I've stopped trying to force journaling.  Instead, I've started journaling when I have something to say but don't want to say it to people and when I have more than three thoughts/ideas running in my head.  I've done this because it clears my thinking and doesn't keep me in my head constantly.  IT'S. DONE. WONDERS. FOR. ME!

2.  I look for more profound ways to bless others without expecting rewards or accolades.  I'm a giver at heart.  I want to give, give, give.  But rather than giving away so much and being depleted...I'm looking for ways to give deeper so that my cup isn't empty.  

3.  I'm setting new boundaries.  Yep, even at this ripe age...I'm setting boundaries even with those that I hold and love dearly.  It's been AMAZING!  

I've been doing these three for the last few months, and I have to be honest with you...it's been great for my peace of mind.  

What’s something new you’ve tried recently? Did it work? 

Hit me back and let me know.

We've all been told these exact words of 'motivation.'  All that sounds great until you actually have to live it and don't know how to even begin. How exactly do you live it? How do you begin to be who you are called to be?


Here are a few steps to get you started:

1. Know Your Values: It’s essential to take the time to define your values. What do you want out of life? What is most important to you? Take the time to discover what truly motivates and drives you.


2. Set SMART Goals: Goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-bound. Once you define your goals, it’s essential to break them down into smaller chunks so that they are manageable.


3. Make a Plan: Plan how to accomplish each of your goals. This includes what resources and help you need, what steps you will take, and when you plan to complete each step.


4. Take Action: This is the most important part of achieving your goals. The only way they become a reality is if you start taking action toward them. Set aside time daily to put in the work needed to make your dreams come true.


5. Celebrate and Review: Make sure to celebrate your successes, no matter how small they may be. Taking time to recognize your accomplishments can help motivate you to keep going. It’s also important to review your goals often so that you can adjust them if needed.


By following these steps, you will be on your way to achieving anything you put your mind to. Everything is possible if you believe in yourself and take action! So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and make those dreams a reality!
