2019 Rebel Spark Goal Book

2019 Rebel Spark Goal Book

The 2019 Rebel Spark Goal Book is now available and yes, if you were aware of the workbook from last year, I created a smidgen of change.

This is how ideas and creative works for me. I start with an idea and then over time, it evolves until it feels right and I’ve been in a transition this last year to really narrow down my work and have all of my content reflect all parts of me.

But back to the workbook 🙂

This year’s Rebel Spark Goal book comes with:

  • Reflection
  • Thank you 2018
  • Flower of Life
  • 2019 Vision
  • Be, Do and Have Goals
  • Quartley Goals
  • Monthly planning Pages supported by Inspired living pages and hashing out goal pages.
  • Problem-solving mind map and a blank mind maps
  • Blank pages

The goal book has 97 pages to help you and support you in reflecting on this past year and give thanks to the good and the lessons.

The flower of life helps you give some thought of where you are and where you would like to be that you will incorporate into your vision.

Once your vision is complete you can use your intuition to decide on your goals for the year.

The monthly planning pages are here to help you note the dates of actions and deadlines for each goal, while the goal pyramid and goal worksheet are here to guide you on the action steps that you will want to take to achieve your goal.

I’ve included a problem-solving mind map this year because it’s not fun being overwhelmed and frustrated but you can solve them by weighing all the options. This can be great working in partnership with a friend or accountability partner.

And last but not least, the pages are meant for you to personalize them by coloring them in and adding your own doodles and sketches as you feel fit. The coloring is helpful for active meditation i.e. think about how you want to feel and then color in a page and tune in on what’s need it to make it happen.

Are you waiting for the right time to follow the spark?

Are you waiting for the right time to follow the spark?

Can I ask you something?

Do you feel nudges inside of you to act on an idea you’ve had mulling around in your head?

I like to call them sparks because you’re brain fired off an idea but there’s a connecting missing to get it going – kind of like when a care doesn’t start properly for the engine to start.

And just like when a car doesn’t make the connection properly and it needs to go to the mechanic, you too could use a little work so that all cylinders are a go so you can act on your idea.

Here’s what I know to be true: 

The right time doesn’t really exist when it comes to you, your idea and taking action.

  • That book isn’t going to write itself
  • That business isn’t going to gain traction
  • That relationship isn’t going to improve

But more than anything else your self-acceptance isn’t just going to show up even if you were too when you start doing what your soul calls you to do and your mind tells you it’s a brilliant idea.

Until 2007, I talked about that one day I would write a book about growing up in foster care and I did all the prep work. Created a timeline of important points I wanted to cover and then it just stood at a standstill. But then through the experience with my son and the recognition that life is too damn short, I wrote and published my book in 2009.

And every time I have a spark fire off, I remind myself that life’s too short and I owe it to myself to see where it goes!

Every dream, spark, and goal needs mindset work that includes:

  • Self-awareness of where you are right now and who you are
  • Self-acceptance and embracing yourself to the fullest
  • The willingness to look at yourself from a different angle

I created this guide to help you get started on your journey because when you want to follow your spark, you have to start with yourself!

You owe it to yourself to explore you and see where those sparks lead you!

There are always things that don’t make sense but yet you keep on traveling

There are always things that don’t make sense but yet you keep on traveling

Life isn’t supposed to make sense all the time. Life is a journey and when you travel along the path, you will see things and wonder and question it. 

There are always things that don’t make sense but yet you keep on traveling. 

But it’s hard, isn’t it? So incredibly challenging when you try to understand why something is happening or how it even got to this point.

Sometimes when you try too hard to make sense of something, in order to find the closure, you’re only going to confuse yourself even more. 

The painful experiences and memories that haunt you don’t always make sense as you wonder why did this happen to me? What did I do to cause this? 

It’s so incredibly easy to get wrapped up in all of that. And yet, sometimes things happen for no rhyme or reason but you have the opportunity to look and see who emerged because of those experiences. 

But in the moments when nothing makes sense to you at all, you will want to give yourself the space to say goodbye and let it all go. You can’t change your life by always trying to figure out what it all means. 

Take some time and think about the events that don’t make sense. And then take some more time and write out what you appreciate about those moments. And then make the space to see what you have learned because of them. 

Even when it was painful. Even when you want to just yell and scream about them. And in the end, give yourself a pat on the back because you’ve made it through them despite whatever challenges may have stood in the way. 

You can’t let go without compassion towards yourself. Give yourself that. When you feel compassion and love for yourself you have the ability to unfold the hands around your heart and let go. 

 

How to get things done that are important to you

How to get things done that are important to you

I know what it feels like to have these ideas and dreams and struggle to get started. Figuring out what is important and how to get things done can be challenging.

I have 3 kids, am a multi-passionate and run 3 businesses. It wasn’t until I discovered how to create focus and time management skills that suited me that I began making an impact in my life and in my businesses.

But just how to do you identify what is important to you? How to narrow down what your steps are to move towards your goal?

At the end of each month, I sit down and get clear on the goals that I want to achieve. I start with the main goal and then break it down into smaller goals. The smaller goals are the action steps that support the main goal.

This will look like this:

  • Main Goal
    • Smaller goal
    • Smaller goal
    • Smaller goal

You can create as many smaller goals as you need that will support your main goal. And once you have identified what will help you achieve the main goal, it is time to create action steps for each goal.

  • Smaller goal
    • Action step
    • Action step
    • Action step

The one thing I learned that may be helpful to you is that goals and action steps change. It’s important to allow for flexibility and recognize when something becomes less important.

Here’s the thing to remember, all those smaller goals and action steps support your main goal, and you can work them into your schedule. Start with the one that seems most important or pressing to get done, and add it to your daily planner.

Then look at all the other steps and tasks you need to get done and rank them by priority and fit them into your schedule accordingly. Some tasks will take less time than others. Some smaller goals you can get done in one day while other’s need to be spread out over a week or months.

Getting clear on your goals

Getting clear on your goals

Challenge, situation or circumstance I have been asked: How do you do it?

This is a simple enough question, except that I have struggled to give the answer because I just do. It is such an automatic process because it is something that I have always done.

I have very little room for bullshit such as excuses, whining and complaining. I get an idea and if it excites me enough I work towards to make it happen. Like running a 14-Day Coloring Challenge that in the middle of creating it prompted me to redo the entire website for my coloring page collection.

But sometimes one must dig deeper for the bigger vision. So here is my process:

  • I get clear on what I wanted
  • I create a vision of the result I want to achieve
  • I do the work required to make it happen

This isn’t always as easy as it seems because obstacles and hurdles come up and try to get in the way. Fear, frustration, and self-doubt will trip you up and others, including your ego, will tell you that you can’t do it.

I was told I am a failure but if failure means going to school, graduating with two degrees and raising my children well, then I have succeeded! I win!

To gain the confidence, you must do the work and once you do the work all those negative voices will be silenced!

Going after your goal is scary and you will hear that you are not smart enough, that you are not good enough but who the heck are those naysayers? What do they know? They only know what they believe about themselves – because they didn’t go to college, you can’t go to college. Because they were told to work a job for their rest of their lives, they can’t have a business of their own and neither can you!

Well to hell with that!

Go and get clear on your dreams and turn them into focused oriented goals!
