Simple Tips for Achieving Your Goals

Simple Tips for Achieving Your Goals. Why success doesn't just happen.

Last night I found a note I'd written to myself (on my phone's notes) in January of 2011. I wrote this when I was a single mom with three little kids to support and raise on my own (full-time). When my salary was barely above the poverty line. When I was just trying to survive and keep my head above water. When I had no one to lean on or confide in.

Simple Tips for Achieving Your Goals.

I wrote it before...

Simple Tips for Achieving Your Goals

Before I'd written a single page of a book.

Before we had a single stamp on our passports (or even had passports).

Before I'd had a six-figure year.

Before I owned a car with less than 200,000 miles on it.

Before I ran a marathon.

Before I read books, cooked daily for my kids, or traveled, or learned how to take care of and depend on myself. Back when I felt scared and alone most of the time.

Simple Tips for Achieving Your Goals

Before I did all of that... I dreamed I COULD.

It was NOT EASY.

It was NOT luck.

No one gave it to me.

No one made it happen, BUT ME.

Before I manifested a single thing on that list, I ALLOWED MYSELF TO WANT IT.


I began to imagine what my life would be like if any of that stuff came true.

I gave HOPE a chance.

I started taking imperfect ACTION towards it, even though I had no idea what I was doing, or how to make it happen.

I actively controlled the voices in my head, changing the "I can't" into "I will."

And now, 9 years later, I can check off everything on that list (except the goal weight and "mommy makeover." but those will come!).

9 years later... My kids and I have traveled to five countries (passports stamped!), been to 2 home Ravens (NFL) games, sat court-side at NBA games, sat in suites at MLB games, and taken a train across Italy. I've written 2 traditionally published #1 best-selling books, taken the kids to Disneyland, flown first class more times than I can count, far exceeded my income goals multiple years in a row, have bought 3 Mercedes, ran a marathon, become a pretty decent cook, and created a life I LOVE.

I share this not to brag, but to say... If I could do it, ANYONE CAN!

ARE YOU where you dreamed you would be 9 years ago?

Are you living your wildest dreams?

Is your life what you imagined it could be?

Are you the person you dreamed of becoming?
