Are you ready to make 2020 your best year yet, both in your business and in your personal life? Now's the time to start planning. It takes consistent action and realistic goals to make it happen. This is where most people fail; they don't take action everyday to make it happen. Most often it's because they are not accountable. Find out how to make sure you make 2020 a great year!
Are you the CEO of your business and life?
We need to listen closely to others as well as to ourselves. Are we using the right language to help set the right mindset in our transitions and transformations. This is so critical. Ask others to call you out when you start using damaging language and do the same for others.
Ditch Your Plan B
In order to obtain your desires; i.e. Plan A, you have to ditch Plan B. You must have complete faith and act 100% within that faith that Plan A is already coming to fruition. If you plan for failure, i.e. make a Plan B, Plan B will be needed! When you plan to fail, you will fail! So ditch Plan B and go all in with Plan A.
Accountability - Do You Have It?
Do you often use excuses to explain why you aren't getting anywhere in meeting your goals? If so, here are two ways you can hold yourself more accountable. Once in motion, watch how much more productive you become!
