Welcome to this first ever episode of the SistaSense Success Podcast Series. Today it’s all about Make Move’s Monday – a time for you and I to identify those things that might be holding you back while exploring solutions that can potentially move you and your business forward.
Show Notes[1:15] Understanding the Importance of Setting SMART Goals – Specific, Measurable, Action-Based, Relevant, Time-Bound.
[4:30] Get Unblocked – understanding what it takes to get unblocked when you are afraid or trying to deal with past failures.
[8:00] 3 Steps to Get Unblocked, acknowledge where your anxiety is coming from and work towards your bigger vision.
[8:30] Get Unblocked Practical Step #1 – Brain dump everything you say “I want to, but …” Take this moment to stop hiding from your feelings and really confront the things that have been on your mind.
[12:10] Get Unblocked Practical Step #2 – Take this moment to say to say this out loud, “I actually can. Actually, I can.” Believe that you can move forward in spite of what you think or what others have told you. Just saying these words, whether you truly believe it, begins the process of affirming it. You will miss 100% of the shots that you don’t take, so do something now rather than do nothing. Just by taking a shot at this, the odds are in your favor. As Maya Angelou once said, “Nothing will work unless you do. Just by taking the shot you are moving yourself forward.
[14:48] Get Unblocked Practical Step #3- Take a good look at what you are trying to accomplish and break them down into realistic projects, tasks and daily activities. You can not look at this big vision that you have for yourself and gulp it down. Over-thinking can lead to negative thoughts, so break your goals down into action steps.
[16:50] Break down your vision by focusing on three areas: what you can do today, this week, and this month that will get you a few steps closer towards your bigger goals. Start with today and build from here.
[19:55] Be Kind to yourself. Be your best fan club by acknowledging your small wins. Appreciate and respect yourself for the things that you do and you will begin to do more because you will believe that you can.
