As I hurry to catch up on my commitment to participate in The Suitcase Entrepreneur’s 30 Day Blog Challenge, after taking the weekend off to just enjoy time here on planet earth, it’s currently Day 7, so we have the questions from Days 6 and 7 to address. The question for Day 6 is “What are my three priorities for the next 30 days that will move me closer towards living life on my own terms?” and I hope that you’ll read Natalie’s blog, because she shared some very cool, real life examples of people who are already living the dream!
All right, so what are my three priorities for the next 30 days, that will move me closer towards living life on my own terms?
At this point, we’ve already defined the lifestyle that we want to enjoy on preceding days, now it’s time to determine what are your priorities in life, and to decide what steps we need to take in order to get closer to achieving our goal. So prioritize, prioritize, prioritize.
- Increase the number of articles which I write per week to promote my online diamond business, write at least one article per day which represents a different niche or offering.
- Write a chapter per week for my book on personal development, and begin filming excerpts for the program which I am creating on dating and relationship dynamics.
- Increase awareness for this and my other web sites through use of various social media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Realistically this is stuff that I should be working on a little bit everyday, but I tend to work on this stuff in streaks, what can I say, even a personal development coach needs a little personal motivation from time to time!
Today’s question for Day 7 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge, is “Which key tools will you turn to regularly to maintain your mindset and how will you use them effectively?“
One of the most important tools that I have in my tool belt as a Strategic Intervention Coach, is the ability to maintain my personal and emotional state, by paying attention to what Tony Robbin’s refers to as “The Triad” which is comprised of our Emotions, Language and Physiology.
I also use a variety of meditation programs which are designed to clarify my purpose of mind, and improve my focus. I find that taking 20 – 30 minutes per day to meditate, and just unwind the mind, enables me to be much more effective in terms of accomplishing my goals and providing better service for my clients.
And of course, I rely on personal development coaching, from other Strategic Intervention Coaches to help me define my vision, and to help me develop strategies for achieving my goals and dreams, and improve my personal relationships. While it might seem strange at first, for a personal development coach, to use the services of another coach, the reality is that everybody can benefit from the unique perspective that S.I. coaching provides, and most of us have other coaches as clients.
The same principle holds true for my business, I am constantly reading books on marketing and business development, like Natalie’s new book, The Suitcase Entrepreneur, and Millionaire Messenger by Brendon Burchard, which focuses on helping people develop their unique experiences and talents into a message which is marketable to the masses, this is another way to fund your dream lifestyle.
