Why Must We Honor Our Goals??
This week I wanted to discuss your goals and how you seriously honor them by actually pushing forward. So in this weeks video I basically speak on how you can honor Your Goals by FIRST discovering your GIFT and then learning how to share it with others. See we often forget we ALL have something we are absolutely AMAZING at! BUT we often shy away from the things we are gifted in because of fear. The fear of what others will think, the fear of failure and even the fear of actually being successful because putting ourselves out there is a scary thing!! I know for me to get on FB live each week is a challenge! I am not made up I don’t dress really nice and I just come as is! This takes the pressure off for me because my goal is to share the message and I feel my gift is to encourage empower and inspire and that is what I shall do! Day in and Day out this is what I strive for, to be an impact in someone’s life and inspire them based on my own story, my own failures and my own experiences that I want to be transparent enough to share with the world because someone out there is exactly where I was and they may need the encouragement to push thru because that is where they are in life. So sharing and inspiring others is a gift I have to share because my story isn’t for me, it’s for the world!!
Honor Your Time and take your goals seriously. Today’s Affirmations were perfection but this one stuck out to me! The thing is that it’s easy to think we always have more time BUT in reality we don’t, we have less time every day, we have less moments, less memories, our time is running out, some of us have less time than others but the truth is that we are all dying. We won’t be here forever and yesterday is gone so we have to always keep in mind that each moment we spend NOT chasing our dreams with passion and running for our goals we are straight up wasting! I don’t want to waste time any more than I want to waste food ( and I love food lol) but seriously..... I tried for the past week NOT saying “I don’t have time” and saying “It’s not a priority” and I felt pretty low on some of the things I said I didn’t have time to do only to realize I was just making excuses and selling myself short because I have WAY too many goals to reach to be playing GAMES! So I made adjustments and I’ve even begun tracking my day by 15 min increments so that I know I am using every minute of my day wisely, even when I relax it’s with intention because I want to live a few years like most wont so I can have the life that most can’t! A prosperous one! No matter how long it is! I want to make my impact on the world and I can’t continue like it just will happen, I have to MAKE it happen, each day I need to get up and choose to push forward. No one said it would be easy, they only promised it would be worth it and my journey has been more than worth it!! I won’t wake up with regrets about what I haven’t done, I’m just going to continue to JUST JUMP!
PAUSE!! It’s ONLY day 2 in our flawless fall challenge and one of my partners is already getting amazing results and she’s heading to the DR this weekend!! I’m so happy she’s wrapping and happy!! Want to join the Flawless Fall Group?!? Click the photo!
Why am I pushing so hard in life & business?
I'll tell you why...
☝🏻I was tired of asking for leave👋🏻
☝🏻I was tired of not having time for myself and my family⏰
☝🏻I was tired of answering to someone else 🙄.
☝🏻I was tired of living check to check😬
☝🏻I was tired of being overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated🙅🏼
☝🏻I was tired of being overlooked.😳
☝🏻I was tired of debt💰
☝🏻I was tired of building other people's dreams✨
☝🏻I was tired of not seeing the world 🌎
☝🏻I was tired of people telling me I couldn't.
But the question is, are YOU?
My Tuesday Tip this week... Get sick and tired of being sick and tired! I mean let's be real with ourselves right, the ONLY reason we ain't meeting our goals and making ish happen is because CLEARLY we are NOT yet sick and tired of being sick and tired. STRAIGHT UP! Because if you are dealing with a moron on the phone and you get tired of them, what do you do? HANG UP... right?!? So why when we get sick of not reaching our goals because we are in our own way, why can't we hang up on ourselves and get FED UP, I mean SO fed up that it forces us into action?!? I think it's possible, my tip to help you get over yourself is to wake up each day and say what you are TIRED OF, and I mean REALLY tired of it! Get over yourself, get out of your own way and MAKE IT DO WHAT IT DO!
Yesterdays Video was about our thinking and how negative thoughts can effect us, THIS is how we get over thinking negativity because if we state what we want to be DONE with as if we are tired of it then we can overcome it! We can take what seems like such a huge mountain and turn it into an ant hill
In addition to getting my biz and brand in order i have been working on my personal health and wellness goals and as of now i am about 20lbs down!! I feel great and actually better than i ever have before because I have been taking my vitamins and drinking lots of water in addition to healthier eating habits!! I really am proud of myself because this has been tough for me and with the additional weight after the baby I just havent been much into ME and that was becoming a problem BUT i got myself some new clothes (which I will share before 2016 ends) and I look and feel better even tho I am NOT at my pre-pregnancy weight at this time and personally I am PLEASANTLY surprised!
Well a few days into August and I feel amazing!!! Why? Because each day I'm taking steps closer to my goal!! I want to look better, feel batter and make more income and I can't do that if I allow what the peanut gallery says to get to me! You see we are GOING to run into obstacles that bring out our insecurities all the time BUT we determine the effect they make! We can allow them to get under our skin and distract us from the task at hand OR we can allow them to be fuel to our fire because let's face it, one of the GREATEST joys in life is doing what people say you can't! Because YOU ARE AMAZING! Tell yourself this daily!! Today repeat to yourself 10 times:
"There is nothing life can throw at me that I cannot overcome"
Gee golly.... I know it's been a VERY long time since Au have blogged and I haven't been updating my website or ANYTHING and well let's just say I have been busy.... Brian and I just welcomed our newest addition to the family a happy, healthy baby girl! So yes now 3 children and 2 boys with 1 little angel. It's been a crazy several months and well let's just say with everything else going on I definitely fell off with my blogging and my videos and basically every form of communication with the cyber world outside of posting pics for Instagram (@dajavi) or making updates to Facebook. But in that time I was away I was finally able to complete my Diamond promotion in March and man did it feel good!!! I also snagged myself a nice $20,000 get out of debt bonus and I was just blown away!! My journey so far with ItWorks had been AMAZING and it just keeps getting better!! I'm very excited to have so many with me on this journey and lately it's been crazy but I CAN meet my 2016 goal to go TRIPLE DIAMOND and create a 6-figure income for myself and my family!! So expect to see me share more because with my pregnancy not only did I gain a new baby but I also gained unwanted weight and the journey to lose it has begun!! Stay tuned.... The second half of this year will be EPIC!
Well let's see.... the average Joe (or Josephine for that matter has BIG DREAMS). However most average people settle for a life of mediocrity. However most are not motivated to turn these Dreams into GOALS to make them a REALITY. Am I correct? I mean lets think about this. As Kids we dream BIG, I mean most of us wanted to be Doctors or Lawyers, maybe Actors, Singers, Famous Athletes. There is a common thread, fame and/or fortune.
These Ordinary people ".. lack the desire to begin paddling toward shore and to climb out of the (sea) of mediocrity and on to STAND FIRM on the shore of opportunity..."(-Richard Furman "Reaching Your Full Potential"). I find it interesting that the author of this book writes it with the words STAND FIRM and uses the analogy of the sea vs the shore.
My interpretation of this was that mediocrity is unstable. The waves of the sea bounce us back and forth with force and if we are out there alone the current can take us so far away from opportunity that we are LOST forever from the opportunity to live a mediocre life forever. But the sea is the mind. You or better yet WE have control over this, in my mind I swam across an entire sea of trials and troubles and woes. BUT if we focused towards our goals and opportunities (the shore) we can pull ourselves out of mediocrity and stand FIRM on that shore.
But HOW? Well think about it as if you are in the sea being tossed back and forth, you must ACT FAST. YOU come up with a plan and then in order to save your life you must ACT immediately? time is of the essence at this time because your life is on the line. Think about this everyday. IT could be our last, tomorrow isn't promised and the next day could be our last. The secret to success is to take action and continue to take action. I talk about this a lot because this mindset is what motivates me everyday to write, to draw, to plan, to study, to grow, to spend time with my family and continue to learn from the lessons GOD allows me to experience.
EVERYTHING is a blessing! If your boyfriend just left you, it was meant to be..... if your car died, it was meant to happen.... pray that GOD shows you why it happened and PRAISE him through your hardest times so that you can focus and have faith because if he brought you TO it he WILL bring you through it, in everything that happens think to yourself why and understand it was all a part of molding you. If a friend was taken too soon maybe God is telling you to focus and not to waste time because we never know when it is our time to leave this earth, but we can certainly control what others see from us while we are here. Make Noise! make your place in this world and pull yourself out of the sea of mediocrity and set simple goals to make your big dreams come true! Continue to do this daily, because Success is a journey not a destination and even though our journey may be different from someone else all we have to do is set goals to be steps to reach our goals and go for it daily, each day giving more and doing better than the day before....wiser....stronger....even more driven each day you wake up!
