We Interrupt Our Regular Programming….

I’m a bit behind on my posting…and I apologize. Does your life ever get a tad off schedule, or knocked off kilter, or completely off course?

I think we ALL can identify with THAT! haha!

What do you do when that happens? Do you shut down, take a step back and regroup, run off in a completely different direction than the one you were heading in before? Me, I research.

When life isn’t working out the way I thought it should, or something happens that knocks me off track for a few days, I tend to go into research mode. Not every time, sometimes I can just pick up where we left off and keep moving forward. But other times, I need (or think I need) a fresh start. A better system, better tools, etc. So I hit Pinterest and research. haha!

I’m a bit of a planning and organizing nerd (in case you’ve missed that so far in our journey together). I love to research and create new systems and tools that help me feel like life isn’t REALLY so far out of control. Implementing them works ok usually too…it’s the sticking with it long term that is the issue. Anyone else?

I mean, I can have the latest and greatest system but still not make any visible progress toward the goals and dreams that God has for me.

This past week we’ve been talking about new adventures as a family, the possibilities, the what ifs, the pros and cons. All that thinking takes up a lot of time. So does research. But…have we spent as much time praying about it as we have researching and talking about it?

Why do we so often go to prayer as a back up plan? Or an item on our checklist for a good life?

What can we do (I do) to make prayer more of a priority? What have you found to be helpful for you? I’d love to chat! Share with us in the comments!

ps Stay tuned for more info on our adventures coming up soon!

My Vision/Goal Notebook

This is a follow up to my How to Make Sure 2017 ROCKS! Series from last month. I wanted to give you a quick run down and glimpse into what I put into my Vision/Goal Notebook.

I created a vision board for my wall, but wanted to have something portable as well. I based this on Terri Savelle Foy’s book Dream It, Pin It, Live It.

Each Vision/Goal has specific details listed on the page with whatever graphics I’ve found that help me to “see” it.

  • Date the Vision/Goal is being set
  • Specifics of the Vision/Goal (Lose 20 lbs by June 1st, etc)
  • The Plan to Achieve that Vision/Goal (I will exercise 3 times a week, etc.)
  • Scripture Focus
  • Seeds Planted (what have I invested towards meeting this goal)
  • Notes (in order to reach my goal I need to…)
  • Date Achieved

I have BIG goals in here as well as some smaller ones, all of them written out and as many of those details filled out as possible.

Here’s a quick video so you can see what I mean.

Book Report: Dream It, Pin It, Live It by Terri Savelle Foy

Sooo….I thought this book was all about how to create a vision board. You know, cut pictures out of magazines and put them on a poster board with some encouraging quotes like “DREAM BIG!!” Or “The only thing you have to fear is fear itself.” etc.

I was wrong. SO wrong.

This book DOES talk about creating a vision board, but it ALSO talks about discovering the vision God has for you.

Terri is an amazing story teller, she weaves quotes from the Bible along with famous entrepreneurs from a century ago with quotes from some of today’s business leaders and “All Stars.” There is so much heart in what she writes!

Some of the topics she covers in this book (besides the actual building of your vision board) are:

  • Finding clarity in your vision
  • A 30 day Goal Challenge to help cement your goals and vision
  • Mindset and how you talk to yourself
  • The law of attraction
  • What to do while you want for your dreams to come true
  • Ideas and inspiration and success stories from others

I think that along with Lara Casey’s book, Make it Happen, Terri’s book here has changed the future of my business and family life. I’ve never really had trouble dreaming…ask my third grade teacher Mrs. Delgado…haha!! What I HAVE struggled with was creating and implementing the ‘how’ to achieve those dreams, and then of course, carrying out those actions. #procrastinatorunderreform

God has a special plan and purpose for each of us and I for one don’t want to get to Heaven and have Him ask me why I buried my talent or didn’t use the gifts He gave me to accomplish His purpose in my life. I believe that He gave me a specific purpose to help people find hope for their health and finances.

I KNOW that having my goals and dreams, along with the action steps to get there, right in front of my face as I type right now (as well as in a notebook with more details in my purse, more on that later) is going to help me reach my goals. Never again will I face a new year and think, “MAN! I thought I’d be further along than I am now…I’m still in the same place as LAST year!”

Forward progress…even if it is imperfect progress. That’s the aim, right!?

How to Make Sure 2017 ROCKS!! Part 3

If you’ve read my Book Report on the book Make it Happen you’ll get an idea of how much I love these tools. Tonya at Inkwell Press and Lara at Cultivate What Matters are brilliant and have an incredible team to help them bless us! I’m so thankful for both of these ladies, their vision and their dedication to helping us by providing such beautiful tools!!

Here is Part 3 of our video series, a walk through of both the Inkwell Press LiveWell planner and the Cultivate What Matters Power Sheets Workbook. Both tools that I hope to never be without. Great work ladies!! #allthehearteyes
