There is goal setting and there is goal setting. But just spewing out a goal without a why or any meaning behind it, will falter and never come to fruition.
This goal challenge is based on a process that I use every single year and then every single month to stay focused and motivated and achieve the things I’ve set out to do.
One of the overwhelming events that can happen when you set goals is that well you don’t know where to begin and either spin your wheels in frustration or quit altogether. This challenge will help you break down your goals into smaller steps so that you can feel confident in achieving them.
And I will also share the importance of scheduling them because fact, is if it doesn’t get written down, then it won’t happen because odds are you will forget to do that thing you said you were going to do!
And of course when you have your goals figured out and the break down has occurred and you’ve scheduled them you still going to think, how it’s all going to work out. Have no fear, the Petra is here to help you through it and also the how to handle any fears and doubts that may come your way!
Each day you’ll receive an email with a worksheet to help you through that day’s objective. Here’s what you’ll learn and do:
- Day One: Goals, Goals, Goals But before you get there, you have to find out what your vision is
- Day Two: Break it down. I’ll show you how to break down the goals to reduce overwhelm
- Day Three: The Schedule. If it doesn’t get scheduled it doesn’t happen
- Day Four: Making all the pieces fit. How to make it all work with where you are now
- Day Five: Mindset. Last but not least, we’ll focus on our mindset and some of the fears and doubts.
Are you stretched too thin with too many obligations in your week?
Do you find it challenging to make time for yourself?
Do you even know what would nurture you?
I released the Nurture Yourself Challenge in the Rebels Academy aka Rebel Soul Connection.
28 days of exploration and trying new things to help you figure out what activities nurture your soul and give you the much-needed downtime from the hustle and bustle.
The goal is that you find about 3-5 things that not only light you up but truly nurture your spirit, and incorporate them into your long-term self-care regimen.
Sometimes in the chaos of life when you there are more demands in the day than you can manage, it’s challenging to find time for yourself.
In this challenge, you will spend 10-30 minutes a day, trying something different. You may already be familiar with some of the activities and that’s okay but this is about the experience and nurturing yourself more than anything else.
- What would it mean to you to take a little time for yourself every day?
- How refreshed would you feel?
- How relaxed could you go into the day?
Something I learned over the years is that if I don’t take care of myself, who will? If I don’t prioritize myself and give me that respect, how can I expect other people to respect and honor me?
And I want you to ask yourself the same questions!
And the end of the 28-day Challenge, I hope that you have found a few things that you know will work for you to help you nourish and nurture yourself.
There is no right or wrong way to engage in self-care and there whatever practice works for someone else, it may not work for you.
Join the Rebels Academy today and start taking the Nurture Yourself Challenge!
There was a time in my life, I would always say “one day I will” and “someday this will be true” but eventually I realized that I was only lying to myself and those I shared my dreams with because I didn’t take action.
I struggled to turn my ideas into reality while juggling work, motherhood, cultivation friendships and I got so sick and tired of not achieving my goals. I got even more tired of my excuses and the frustration and overwhelm that existed in my life.
Does this sound familiar?
I decided to get clear of what I wanted to achieve in my lifetime and map out how I would get there. This meant that I would decide what I would do for a living, how I would show up every day and only do the things that really light me up.
It meant that I would tune out the outside noise and really start focusing on my own dreams and goals, even if I hit some detours along the way.
And this is where the 90-Day Journey comes in!

I started my first business in 2005 and have had a few that I either lost interest, simply because they didn’t give me the fulfillment I need every single day.
The challenge over the years became that I was creating all of these different things and kept them separate from my life depended on it.
Because conformity taught me that we can’t be and do all that we wanted and that we had to choose one thing.
And here I was trying to show that you can have the cake and eat it too but it became incredibly difficult to manage. What I hoped would be a piece of cake because a clusterfuck that I struggled to maintain some kind of sanity around.
And for someone who is preaching about forging your own path and doing all things your way, I was in completely out of alignment with my message and how I showed up every single day.
And here I am today with a new layout for my website because I can squish all that I love in one place and I no longer have to come up with content for a gazillion things, but rather just in once place sharing wisdom about life, business, art and whatever else I may want to talk about.
Why would this matter to you?
Since I decided to make changes in my business before the website change, I have been trying to figure out how I can best show you that you absolutely can have the life that you want, do the things that you love and you don’t have to sacrifice a single thing about you.
I am able to show you that all you need is clarity on what you want and where you want to go and then allow the pieces to fall into place.
This life… it’s a journey.
And as I am turning a year older tomorrow, I know that this past year has been about undoing and becoming in more than one way. And sometimes we can’t see that until someone points this out.
So how do you bring all the pieces together?
You write it out of course!
Write about in terms of one year, 5 years and even 25 years from now.
What does your perfect day look like? Who are you with? What have you been up to that brings you the most joy? What do you do for fun? What does that look like? What does that feel like? What passions have you been pursuing, either full-time or part-time?
Here’s an excerpt of what I wrote December 2016:
The date is December 31st, 2017 and I am so grateful and happy that our home feels so amazing and warm and cozy. I love that I wake up to my partner every morning and that we are literally achieving our goals to freedom to live on the road.
All of our debt is paid off and my partner is driving around town in his new truck. My Kia Soul is paid off and continues to bring me joy when I am driving it around town.
Our kids and animals are the epitomai of health and life truly is feeling awesome these days.
Our garden this year has produced so much goodness of zucchini, tomato, eggplant, oregano, basil and green peppers. I truly enjoyed working in my garden grow our own food.
I am so grateful and happy that I get to support amazing women in the Rebel Soul Connection helping them achieve their goals in life and that I have been able to grow my own support network in the process. It feels really amazing to have people in your life that not only listen to you but cheer you on as well.
I am so grateful and happy that I have written my first fiction novel and that I enjoyed the process so much that I cannot wait to write more books in the upcoming year following.
My artwork is selling with ease and it doesn’t take much effort to share my work and people love how I bring value to their life, showing them that anything is truly possible.
And here’s what happened during this year:
- I opened up the Rebel Soul Connection
- I grew our own vegetables
- Started playing soccer as a way to exercise
- Became a podcaster
- Started writing my fiction book (to be released in December)
- Started writing a self-help book (to be released in October)
- Merged all of my blogs and became a lifestyle blogger of sorts
- I share my coloring pages, artwork, and wisdom in one spot
- Made progress in our remodel starting with the kitchen
- Decluttered and purged through the house
- My partner has a new truck
- Teaming up with local hospital to share my coloring pages with parents
This is the power of writing it all down and having some clear goals on who you want to be, what you want to have and what you want to do.
Some of these I had no idea how they would unfold nor how they would come into our lives, but they did nonetheless.
And you can have the same undoing and becoming for yourself if you are willing to take a chance with yourself.
