It’s almost the end of February and I’m thinking what!! How did I get moving only to find out the direction I wanted to go in 2014 had gotten sidetracked. Life I tell you! Everyday almost ordinary life blocked my vision of my goals and desires.
Starting this year I was excited to get my business/personal development coaching venture off the ground. During the holiday break that my company offers I sat down and wrote down my personal goals and created a plan of action and then forgot to move forward. On top of that through a crazy series of actions I started moving in a direction that I thought would benefit my coaching business and found myself spending more time on it then my business.
Distractions I tell you. It is so easy to get off course on our life plans. That is way writing down your goals for both your personal and professional life is critical to help you maintain your plan of action. Thank goodness I came to my senses about 10 days ago. Reviewed my plan and said wait I need to turnaround.
I’ve been reading the book, “The Magic of Thinking BIG” by David J Schwartz, PH.D. and am thankful I have been. This classic book from the late 50’s is full of great wisdom to encourage anyone who desires to acquire the secrets of success…achieve everything you’ve always wanted! Or so the cover claims!
I’ve been encouraged not to be so hard on myself because of distractions. Rather as the chapter on goals shares: The important thing is not where you were or where you are but where you want to get.
I’m glad to say I’m back on track. Today, I spent an afternoon brainstorming my promotion plan, reset my goals, wrote of list of marketing materials I may need plus social media ideas and how would I best conduct my business. After that I wrote down the names of folks who know I’ve started my coaching business and those who I need to share the news with!
Now is the magic word of success. Tomorrow, next week, later, sometime, someday often are synonyms for never. Today, I’m feeling focused and took a big step in turning back to my dream. I am happy to report I decided to say, “I”ll start now, right now.”
