Planning & following through. This has always been a challenge for me WHEN I’m dealing with an area of weakness. I want to not only come up with great plans but following through on the preparation and implementation. The more I have to lose, the better this gets. I’m still working on following through naturally.
Current successes/things that are working
I’m dedicating more of my time to things that are getting me one step closer to my goals, e.g. reading books, writing mission statements, spending time with God, etc. I’m scheduling my social media updates which is working quite well. And, I’m learning more about graphics and analytics, etc. so that I am enhance my blog/social media posts.
People are rallying behind my life coaching career and goals for Woman, Live! which feels amazing!
But, you know what’s really working? GOD. Anytime I feel like I’m beginning to get too wrapped up in this or that, I stop and spend some time dedicating it all back to God. It’s for Him so He’ll know the best way to make it all come to life!
