I am not sure about how your first quarter went, but mines was filled with new opportunities, epipanies, setbacks & rediscoveries about myself, others & the life “I am planning” as I approach 31 ahhhhh.
10 PERSONAL REVELATIONS
STARTING THE NEW YEAR I CREATED MY GOAL ACCOMPLISHED JAR for both personal & business - Whenever the year of the year rolls around I always find myself asking myself “What did I accomplish this year?” And I sit there and think of a few things, but always know I am missing more. So, that stops this year with the help of this jar!
I looked over my finances from last year and reevaluate the necessary changes of how & where my money goes. I got SAVING goals that I plan to hit! (Blog post coming this Friday on Money, Saving & Budgeting, stay tuned!
SELF CARE IS TRULY IMPORTANT & NEEDED TO BE SUCCESSFUL! IT HELP ONE RELAX & CLEAR YOUR MIND ( SLEF CARE IDEAS COMING in a blog post soon)
A book a month makes me happy- I love a good book, who doesn’t? I like to read and want to challenge myself with a book a month along with switching the theme of it. For ex business, spiritual, mental, etc ( Will introduce April’s book of the month and hope you join me on this read especially because at the end of the month we will have a in person meet up & discussion on it)
People change and thats okay - We are not meant to stay the same & neither are our relationships (Friends/loves/Family) But if we want it we must work at it, communicate, & nurture it. Do not stay connected with people who take your energy and do not fuel you up, its not good for your mental or physical health.
Learn to say no if it doesn’t add to your life & growth! Life is busy enough so make sure you use your time wisely!
Home is where the heart is, so make it your slice of Heven - I have had roommates for many years trying to look out and help others out. But by nature (Cancer, July 2nd) I am a home body and love it. As I finally reclaim my space with my love I am super excited about decorating and having mini gatherings. So be on the look out for home decor post!
Make time for Friends & family. Be there for those who matter! Find out what being there for them actually means to them & try to live up to it if the relationship is worth it. Also remember to celebrate their wins with them!
Eat good, take control & have fun! - I realized a lot of my money went to food shopping, eating out & takeout…..I know we have to eat to live, but I know I can do better so going into this quarter I will work on meal prepping, weekly menus & continually making miracles in the kitchen just on a tighter & tastier budget I hope!
Make a list of things to try seasonally and start crossing it off! And remember not everything has to be done with someone/a group. Learn to enjoy solo time! (Ill be posting my Spring list soon enough, & can’t wait to see yours!
Routines are everything - Create a morning & night routine! Its a game & time saver!
Spirituality - Decide what Is best for you and make it consistent!
***Going into 2nd quarter I feel more confident, tunnel vision & ready to accomplish these goals & changes as I know it only adds to my bigger picture and my journey of greatness***
10 BUSINESS REVELATIONS
Reevaluate where you currently are & where you want to be along with what worked and or didn’t work last year. If possible create a Vision Board something you can look at daily!
Determine your strength & weakness! Pull in help when and where needed - Once I did this it allowed me to focus on finding the proper help to pull in and where to focus my energy. For ex I have multiple projects always going on so learning to delegate will save me time, stress & energy.
Clean up your online presence & Reorganize all paperwork - I am a hoarder by nature so this is a must for me all the time.
Control your calendar & don’t let it control you & Check your calendar before saying yes
Communication is key
Followup with people & stay in touch with people who were there for you
Know where your money goes, how/when it comes in & saving some
Take calculated risk - ex workbar space
Find/create a tribe - its important to talk with like minded individuals because unfortunately a lot of none entrepreneurs just don’t get it.
Its okay to take breaks, just bounce back strong.
Be open to others & do not surround yourself with “yes” people.
