What Have You Been Putting Off Around Goal Achievement? (and Why It Matters)

How as your goal achievement gone? Did you accomplish everything you set out to do this year? 

It’s been a wild one, so maybe not.

I’m not trying to shame you, promise! The reason I’m asking is that, as we start to gear up for 2021, you’re probably setting some new goals for yourself.

This is the exciting part! You get to think about all you’re going to tackle in 2021!! 

But there’s something just as essential as goal-setting… and that’s acknowledging what’s tripped you up in the past so you can correct it for the future.

The truth is… we all put stuff off (myself included at times!) We’ve all had a goal we’ve set out to achieve, only to find ourselves procrastinating by doing anything and everything else.

Holding yourself accountable to your goal achievement – consistently – is tricky to master.

But even though it takes hard work to maintain accountability, I have some good news. It’s not all your fault.

See, as you start to approach a new level in life and with your goal achievement, your subconscious plays a mind trick on you.

It steps in with all types of distractions, making you see other responsibilities as more important than going after your goal.

But here’s the thing: you don’t have to listen to it.

This is where you can choose how you respond. There are two routes.

Option A: You can focus on what your subconscious is telling you to prioritize. You can go after all these secondary objectives… and put your goal on the backburner.

Your goal won’t be front and center in your mind anymore. Whenever you start to think about it again, you’ll probably feel a tinge of guilt… but your subconscious will eventually come up with (totally legit-sounding) justifications for why you’re concentrating on something else.

Eventually, when things start to calm down with whatever fire you were tending to, you realize: I haven’t made any progress towards my goal in six weeks! (or months, or years!)

Cue the shame spiral.

Yikes. Want to hear Option B?

You can choose not to let your thoughts control you.

You can acknowledge them, and you can even accept that they exist. But you don’t have to act on them.

How you respond to these thoughts is entirely up to you.

This is pivotal. Look at this as a source of power.

Stop Being a Victim of Your Own High Expectations

You have high expectations.

So you want more. (Me too!)

You have big goals for yourself in the coming months and in 2021.

You also know that things have got to change for you to meet these high expectations you have. You can’t keep doing the same thing and think you’re going to get different results. (That’s the definition of insanity.)

And yet… 

Change is not so easy. Building the new habits that create the results you want is not a slam dunk, otherwise you’d just think it and do it, and viola! All done. 

But most people struggle with changing their habits. 

Do you know why?

It’s that your self-image (which lives in your subconscious mind) is not of someone who does what’s required to achieve the goals and dreams… EVEN THOUGH IT’S WHAT YOU WANT CONSCIOUSLY.

What does this look like?

You set a big income goal. Say making $100k or $1,000,000. (Insert your big stretch goal – you have one of those, right?)

You know you have to show up differently… whether that’s raising your visibility, making more connections, doing outreach and sales, or creating a better marketing plan.

But you get distracted…

By the kids…

By the email…

By social media…

By ANYTHING that’s easier.

You do what you know how to do, what’s habitual for you to do, what you’re already successful at doing, instead of building the habit of doing the new, needle moving action… that stretches and changes you.

Even though you know it’s what you need to do and even though you’re committed. 

This is SO FRUSTRATING, especially for the woman who sees herself as someone who gets things done!

Going off track and self-sabotaging starts with your self-image.

It’s time to free yourself from being a victim of your own unmet high expectations. Instead, focus on changing who you know yourself to be–your self-image. This directs your actions and when you change this, doing “all the things” becomes so much easier, almost like magic.

How to Focus and Finish 2020 STRONG!

How to Focus and Finish 2020 Strong

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting psyched to close this year out strong… but it requires understanding how to focus.

2020 has been a crazy one, and I’d be surprised if it hasn’t put a damper in at least a few of your goals and plans for 2020. Maybe you’ve had to scrap some altogether, but when I review the goals I set at the beginning of the year, I’m pleasantly surprised at all that I’ve accomplished.

My primary love relationship is so much deeper and more intimate.

My team has grown significantly, more than doubling in size, with really fabulous people.

We’re slaying on some very key business objectives that had been put off too long.

Our audience has grown dramatically, and we’ve launched The Unstoppable Woman Podcast and The Morning Mindset Club, both of which I’m madly in love with and super proud of.

My physical health is so much better, my clients are thriving, and financially the company’s doing great.

And yet, because I’m an achiever, I have LOTS of goals… and I’ve definitely not met them all. ;-) 

I didn’t get to accomplish everything I wanted… 

This past weekend, as I was soaking up all the fall feels and the changing weather and starting to get ready for the post-Halloween holidays… I had a realization.

It’s not too late to finish strong.

It’s not too late to slay on some of my other goals… and that goes for you, too.

I’m totally activated on this. When others start writing the year off sometime in November, I go hard (with ease and grace.) I really go for it. I want to finish strong. When you do that, you build your confidence, self-esteem, and self-image as someone who keeps her commitments, persists, and achieves her goals. 

This will propel you forward into an even more successful 2021.

It’s not too late for you to create a massive breakthrough in your business – or your life in general.

Are you ready to give up? Or do you want it badly enough to do what it takes to have your breakthrough?

Will you commit to prioritizing you for the end of 2020 – so you can finish the year out strong?

Are you ready to create the mental, emotional, and financial freedom and finally start living the life you truly desire?

Achieve Freedom by Mastering This One Concept

Achieve Freedom
By Amira Alvarez What does it take to achieve freedom? Let’s start by defining freedom. Certainly, it’s the opposite of feeling trapped or limited in any way.  This could look like choosing your own hours, making your own decisions about who you want to work with, or simply not having to report in…

What does it take to achieve freedom?

Let’s start by defining freedom.

Certainly, it’s the opposite of feeling trapped or limited in any way. 

This could look like choosing your own hours, making your own decisions about who you want to work with, or simply not having to report in on the daily to a manager or boss.

It could mean being completely unrestricted when it comes to how you spend your free time or where you choose to live.

It could mean feeling like you could buy anything you want (not having to scrimp, budget, or comparison shop), or do whatever you want in this one life of yours.

Then, of course, there’s the freedom to set your own income – which affects all of the above.

Sounds great, eh?

But then reality comes and you start seeing the limitations…

You can’t say no to working with that one difficult, nitpicky client if you need their money to keep your business going.

You can’t choose to spend your free time learning to surf, traveling (when we’re back to that), or going to the spa if you can’t afford it (or never have any time because you’re trading hours for dollars!)

But really? Freedom is an inside job. Sure you don’t want to be restricted in any of these ways, but these are the symptoms of not being free on the inside. 

To achieve freedom, you have to start with self-ownership. Owning your own life. 

And this requires a whole different set of beliefs than what most people were brought up with.

You have to critically examine your core beliefs about yourself and how the world works.

You have to get to the base of itcut off your blocks to freedom at their root… and get to the cause of limitation.

Then, once you discover where the issues stem from, you have to actually implement change… and start taking new action.

How to Step into a Place of Absolute Clarity

How to know what to focus on

Ever find yourself feeling scatterbrained and all over the place, not knowing what to focus on now? Or overwhelmed and confused? You start to do one thing and get distracted by another before forgetting what the first task was altogether?

I have a feeling this may sound familiar. ;-)

The next time you find yourself feeling this way, I want you to pause.

Stop what you’re doing. Step back. Then ask yourself… What do I really want? What’s the big picture that I’m going after?

What do I really want to accomplish in the next week? In the next month? In the next year?

Is today’s to-do list filled with tasks that are actually going to get me there? Or am I just trying to feel productive by being busy?

We can get so busy and bogged down by our day-to-day tasks and routines, our long to-do list, and the doubts, worries, and fears that we stop being truly productive. We stop knowing what to focus on. We get scattered, confused, and overwhelmed. We stop being purposeful.

This lack of clarity radically limits your ability to call in and achieve your big goals and dreams.

Again, the first question is– What do I really want?

Then–Is this going to move the needle and really get me there? 

Drop in and ask those questions of yourself right now, then… 

If you really want to increase your level of clarity and make showing up purposefully and über productively an automatic way of being… so that you radically increase your cash flow and achieve ALL your goals faster than you ever thought possible… your next step is to understand how this fits into the Manifestation Matrix.

Who Are You in the Face of Temporary Defeat?

How to be Persistent in Business

Do you know what to do when you feel stuck or defeated?

So many women start the process of getting unstuck with so much excitement, and so much motivation to create abundance in their life and business.

They feel energized. They jump into the work, thrilled about what’s to come!

But here’s the thing… success doesn’t just come.

And that excited energy that you start off running with? It will wane.

Especially if you don’t see results right away – which is incredibly common!! (You have to be persistent in business!)

Sometimes it feels like you’ve been working hard at your goal for ages, but you just can’t seem to get there.

Whatever you do, something always seems to come up, hindering your progress. You’re so fed up that if life throws one more challenge your way… you think you just won’t be able to take it! You just want to crawl into your hidey-hole and admit defeat.

By thinking that way, you’re setting yourself up for the hard, the struggle, even the failure.

You need your self-talk to be constructive! Being in business is challenging enough already – there’s no space for this mindset to be holding you back.

But you also must BE someone who is persistent, who doesn’t accept temporary defeat.

You must increase your INNER POWER. You must know how TO BE in the face of temporary defeats that are oh so common in business.
