What are you committed to? Making a commitment to your goals and dreams is somewhat intimidating... Most of us will not even make New Year's resolutions any more because we know there is a very good chance we will not make it to February before those resolutions are long forgotten... We understand the importance of making a commitment, but choose not to make one in fear that we will not follow through.
What would happen if we actually committed to pursuing the goals and dreams in or heart? Dream BIG and actually make a promise to yourself to take the action to see your dreams come true!
It all starts with doing some serious soul searching. What is important to you? What will you regret someday if you don't do it? I've learned a few things that help me accomplish my goals and dreams. 1) Write it down! - there is something magical about writing something, in my own handwriting. You think it, then say it, then see it - it's almost like then I claim it and it is real! 2) Next is - Say it out loud! Tell someone about your goals and dreams! I might add that when you share your dreams with someone, if they don't have a strong surprised reaction - then you probably are not dreaming big enough! 3) Accountability. It is very important to have someone holding you accountable to do what you say you are going to do. Ask someone you know, love & trust to push you along and make sure you are following through on everything you need to do to succeed!
It will not be easy - if it were easy you would have already done it! Your BIG dream will make you feel scared and exited at the same time! You can do it -you already have everything you need to make it happen - just make the decision to go for it - what are you waiting for?
Ok - I'm making this blog my accountability partner - If I share my big dreams here, then I will have everyone who reads this cheering me on which will encourage me to make sure it happens!
1. Physical Health - I will be fit and healthy - I will eat right and exercise daily. This will allow me to have the energy and ability to do everything I need to do every day!
2. Relationships - I will be the best mom possible to my kids - I want to be supportive and involved and I want them to know I love them and am proud of them. I want to be the best friend to the people in my life - friends, family, and business partners. I am committed to serving the people I love.
3. Romance - I want to meet my soulmate, the love of my life. The man I will share the rest of my life with. He is smart, funny, honest, successful, handsome, a man of integrity, a great communicator. He is ready for love and is not afraid to show love. He enjoys adventure, fun, travel, romance, kids, passion and he is not intimidated by an alpha female :)
4. Business - I will launch my product line and it will be super successful! It will be a global brand and have lots of items that will help a lot of people. I will be able to run my business from any where in the world and even when I am sleeping!
5. Money - I will have abundance in all areas of my life money included. I will make $millions through my business then have my $ make $ for me too!

Well, that is just a start for now! Ready to LAUNCH!
How big of a game do you want to play? Do you really want to fulfill the dreams God has placed in your heart? These are dreams and goals that will create passion in your life and move you into daily, monthly, and yearly action. Dreams and goals that bring emotion because of the clear sacrifices that we make preceding long-hoped for victories. Yes, dreams and goals create miracles and accomplishment and fulfillment. And equally important, dreams and goals can create balance, priorities, and life-enhancement.
A Few Questions to help:
I hope you have been dreaming these past few weeks. Do some soul searching to become very clear on what are the dreams in your heart.
What are the most important areas of our life and what dreams do you have for these areas?
What are your three most important goals in life, right now?
Think about what would you do and how would you spend your time if you learned today that you only had 6 months to live...
If time & money were not an issue, what would you do if you knew you could not fail?
What do you enjoy doing most?
What gives you your greatest feeling of personal satisfaction?
Once you have your dreams in front of you, it is time to break the big dreams into measurable goals. In the book I share the SMART formula for achieving goals Specific Measurable Attainable Realistic Timely. It starts with writing down your dreams and goals - this forces you to visualize them. It also creates an emotional commitment.
We all tend to let circumstances get in the way of following our hearts desire. We think that someday, oneday, when I have more money, when the kids are older, when I sell the house, when the economy is better... None of us really knows what tomorrow will bring - today is the perfect day to take ACTION towards pursuing your BIG dreams!
I'm not waiting - Will you join me?
The questions are:
What on earth am I here for?
What is my purpose in life?
Where do I start?
By realizing your greatness...
You will only be truly happy when you are living up to your strengths, courage, and capabilities. Listen to your heart. That is were you will find your bundle of desires, hopes, interests, ambitions, dreams, talents, passions and dreams.
Think about what really thrills you. When you are quiet, think about those things that really get your blood moving. What you LOVE to do do, either for fun, for a living, or to make a contribution? What would you love to accomplish? What big thoughts make you excited and scared at the same time?
Begin writing it all down on paper. Get a journal and every morning just take a few minutes and write down some of your big dreams and how you would feel if you actually were working towards achieving those dreams...
The truth is, your purpose for living is already in you. Its just below the surface waiting for you to accept it and begin living it to the fullest! Get fired up! Take a tiny step towards your dream, it may not be perfectly clear how you will achieve it, but when you know WHY the HOW shows up every time!!!
3. 2. 1. LAUNCH!
Passion & Purpose. To me that is what life is all about. Being passionate about what I do, discovering my purpose and passionately living my life to make a difference seemed to be the driving force for most of my life.
Do you struggle with knowing your purpose? What if you knew that tomorrow was your very last day on this earth? What if you had the opportunity to wake up and LIVE your purpose tomorrow - what would you do?
Do you have an idea for a business? Are you not completely happy with your life today?
We simply do not know what tomorrow will bring. Why do we wait? What are we waiting for? What is holding us back from realizing our dreams and passions and purpose for living? Fear? Excuses? Not truly knowing what our passion or purpose is?
The first 7 pages in my book I talk about living your dream. Following your heart's desires to what you truly love to do, your passion. Find something you want so badly that you wake up in the morning thinking about it - your dream is what drives you - fuel for your soul!
So, now I'm asking myself and you - if time and money were not an issue - what would you do? No more excuses for me. Money is a commodity I will not use lack of it as an excuse to wait any longer and time is not on my side it is moving on with or without me! My passion is driving me now !

With all of the technology advancements, it is certainly a very exciting time to be living. But also, now more than ever, it is important to be clear on the life you want to live. Distractions are all around us, everyone vying for our attention and our $$.
Are you pursuing your heart's desire? Are you living your "dream" life? With the new year, reflect on all of your successes of 2017 and plan out your goals for 2018. Dreaming & Goal Setting are just a place to start moving towards the life you will love to live.

2018 - will be the best year EVER!! XOXO
It's not easy to take full responsibly for the not-so-good things that happen in life... However, if we do take responsibility for our life up to this point, then the good news is we then know we can create the life of our dreams! Anything is possible!!!
