Hi and thanks for visiting my blog! This space will provide monthly insights on ways to manage through life with the use of simple language and relative topics. Feel free to email me in regards to topics that you would like to learn more about.
Each year, I create business goals that reflect me branding myself with my private practice. Although I have accomplished many of the goals, I still had a few that rolled over this year from the previous year. They include expansion, a larger social media presence, and development of additional programs.
Last year my momentum slowed down. This was a result of me not believing in my full capability, not asking for help, and poor organization. At the end of last year, I told myself that 2020 would be an amazing year. I used affirmations to proclaim a year of growth, expansion, and development. I stand her in the 9th month of 2020, to share that this year has been just that! Although I am beyond happy with my discipline and success thus far, I can not help but feel sincere empathy with each of the tragedies that have been present this year. I also have compassion with those individuals who have lost their momentum, and their drive.
I understand that this year has been unpredictable, to say the least. From social injustice to the global spread of the Coronavirus. My way of overcoming defeat with this year has been to get involved and empower myself as well as my community.
I discovered early during this year that my strongest asset to make it through these uncertain times was to love myself through it. As long as we have breath in our body, we owe it to ourselves to love our entire self, and to give back. The Year is 2020. This is the year of vision, and it is not over yet! Please do not leave this season empty handed. We have 3 months left in this year and guess what? There is still time to love you enough to focus on you, and what you can contribute to this world.
Ask yourself what is your Love Language? If you don't know your love language take the test using this link https://www.5lovelanguages.com/quizzes/.
My love language is Receiving Gifts. So what better way to love myself than to Invest in Me! That's right! You can use your Love Language to satisfy your own needs. From the beginning of Covid, I have focused on loving me, and working to accomplish goals that have been on my list for the past 2 years. I invested in a web developer, photographer, additional staff, and consultants all to assist me with accomplishing my goals.
As we enter the final quarter of this year, find your Love Language. Instead of waiting on others to show you love, take time to Love on yourself a little more! I promise, you will gain more momentum when you show yourself more love.
How can your Love Language help you accomplish your goals?
Words of affirmation- Speak positivity into your life! Tell yourself that you are worthy of success. Apply reminders throughout your work station to remind you of your goals.
Quality Time- Spend time getting to know you and doing the things that you love. Take yourself on a date and plan out your goals. Meditate on your future success and then relax at the thought of your future.
Acts of Service- Let's get organized! Schedule time to get it all done. Delegate responsibility to trust worthy others to assist you with seeing the final goal.
Physical Touch- Get cozy! Put on soft fuzzy soaks, grab a plush blanket, apply a facial mask and lay out your plan to accomplish your goals. Once you have accomplished your goals celebrate with a massage.
Receiving Gifts- Gift yourself! Invest in your vision and create your brand. Remember someone is waiting on you to accomplish your goals.
Once you have identified your Self Love Love Language try these steps!
Create a morning or evening routine.
Keep your goals visible and revisit them consistently.
Commit time in your day to work on one thing that will help you today and one thing that will help you in the future.
When developing physical goals, create goals that are based on strength or endurance rather than goals focused primarily on your body image. For example creating a goal to complete 10 burpees instead of creating a goal to loose 15 pounds. Momentum may be higher when measuring progress on endurance and strength instead of waiting to see results with your natural eye.
Be Gentle with yourself. No negative self talk.
Remember, you can start your day over at any moment.
Ask for help when needed. If your goals don't require help then they aren't large enough!
Begin Now! It is not too Late!
