My Top 5 Tools to Set Goals

and Make Things Happen

An Introduction

  1. Introduction
  2. Find and define your own personal style – for your life, your blog, anything – with a Vision Board
  3. Use simple techniques for mapping out your goals for yourself, your family, and your blog using Mind Maps
  4. Get the inspiration you need for the next big step in your journey by choosing One Word to be your focus
  5. Be a negotiator and not take on more than you should by applying the principles of “Stop Doing” and “Thank You But No Thank You” Lists.
  6. Celebrate the everyday victories and show the world how you shine!


These concepts are not my own and there are a lot of resources with the same ideas. I have put them into practice over the last ten years and have had terrific results.

I shared these practices first at a workshop for women from the SoCal Lady Bloggers group. Using the hashtag, #Inspiredfor2015, you will find connections to all of the brilliant women who participated.

At the end of the six sessions, you will have all you need to stay organized, focused, and in control of your business, your hobbies, and your life. Put these tools into practice and the possibilities are endless! Once you enjoy success and find how easily your achievements are met, you will become addicted to the process as I have, and there will be no stopping you. Of course, it takes time. Nothing happens overnight. Allow yourself time and do the “self-work” first. Think of it like training for a marathon. You don’t start by running the marathon first, do you? The key to success is in the preparation and planning.

Here is what you will have at the conclusion of the course:

  1. A vision board – defining your personal style and motivation behind your goals.
  2. A mind map – listing all the steps that need to be taken to get where you want to go.
  3. A focus word for the year – inspiration for achieving your goals.
  4. A “Stop Doing Now” List – Just stop it.
  5. A “No, Thank You” List – be prepared to say, “Yes” to the person, but “No” to the action.
  6. A commitment to positivity, shining brightly, and believing that you can and do celebrate all the successes as they come. Every day is a new victory. Smile and Show the World Who You Are.

I have been writing for many years now about my struggles with finding and living out my true passions and realizing my purpose in life. Through my search, I have developed some practices that have really helped me to build my self-confidence and live a happier, more fulfilled life. As I travel on my journey I continue to grow and learn from all of my experiences. I discovered my favorite things to do are the things that I am good at doing. I have become a certified life coach, an author, and host to my own video broadcast show. I have done all these things by having a clear vision of who I want to be and knowing my core values. Over everything, I believe in myself. If you believe in yourself, you can accomplish anything!2014-04-18 14.42.41

I have designed this workshop to give you some tools for success. Not only for your blog, but also for your life. We all wear many hats and juggle so many responsibilities. It is one thing we all have in common as bloggers, no matter what our niche is, how long we have been blogging, or how “big” we have become in the world of social media. Over the past few years we have all wanted a way to jump-start our blogs and stay organized. I have lots of things to share with you that should help. So, let’s get our rear in gear!

    Oh, I so wish I could have made it to the workshop! I know I would have got so much out of it.

    One of the lessons I am holding on tight to, is say, “No, thank you.” This is the lesson of my 40’s, I wish I would have learned in my 20’s!

    I’m going to be paying attention to what you have to say. 🙂

  4. Love the quotes and the idea! You are so inspiring! Big hugs!

  5. Ann says:

    I wish I could have come to your workshop; I’m sure it was amazing!

  6. Raquel says:

    Oh I am so sorry to have missed the workshop – I would have loved to have gone! Goals are so essential to achieving and vision boards and mind maps certainly help with the inspiration! Excited to read your posts on this.

  7. Erika says:

    It’s so true that you have to have a set of clear goals! It’s also so very true that things take a ton of time. Thanks for all the thoughts!

  8. T.O. Weller says:

    Looking forward to your posts! I love the quotes you posted, especially the one about comparing our ‘behind-the-scenes’ with everyone else’s highlights.

    It’s even more challenging these days, when everyone’s highlights are so easily displayed and accessible online. It can be pretty challenging to stay on course and let the “noise” pass on by.

    I am so excited for this! Wished I a was able to attend Saturday.
