The Rebel Soul Handbook Pre-Sale

The Rebel Soul Handbook Pre-Sale

It’s here!

The Rebel Soul Handbook!

I am so excited it’s here. New pages all ready for you to color and intuitively map out your life.

Why I created the Handbook

Because I wanted something that felt personal and true to me as I wanted to achieve goals that felt in alignment with who I am.

I needed something that allowed me to call in all that I wanted to be, do and have, and I wasn’t finding it in any other workbook or planner that I had purchased.

How it has changed my life

The handbook’s focus is to create a life according to your vision. I recently sat down to do a review for this year’s handbook, and my jaw dropped as I realized that several things have come to be a reality in my life.

This meant, I found what worked for me and I am so excited to share my handbook with you in hopes that it will do the same for you.

How to stop waiting and start taking action

Have you ever considered what getting clear on your dreams does for you?

Or what one simple action will do for your life?

You have the vision that is so far out of reach and you wonder every single day when will your dream turn into reality.

You plan, plan and then plan some more waiting for perfection and just the right time. You keep analyzing ever single detail about your dream. You keep talking yourself out of it and your doubts and fears tell you that it just cannot happen.

I’m going to tell you something and you may not like it, but the right time will never come into reality.

And now I am going to tell you that you CAN turn your dreams into reality, with one single thing.

Taking Action!

Let go of fear and self-doubt Click To Tweet

Believe in you and in your dream.

But how can I take action when I don’t know what to do?

 

You already have a plan right? So, now create some action steps to go with the plan.

Brainstorm a list of things you will need to do.

 

Let’s say you want to start a business because you want the freedom.

What will you need to get started?

Create a checklist of what you will need to do.

Do those things!

 

Or maybe you want to make more art?

What art do you want to do? Decide it!

Purchase your supplies.

Make art.

 

Oh but I don’t have the time.

Hogwash!

 

We all have the time when we make it a priority. Click To Tweet

You look at all the things you are doing now and decide what it is that no longer fits in your priority list, let that go and then voila, you now have time to do that thing you want to do.

Just maybe you are saying, but I want to be healthier.

 

Define what being healthier means to you.

Is it eating less junk food or cooking more meals from scratch or both. Is it exercising and moving your body more often?

Be clear on what that means for you and then write it down.

Now write all the things you can do to help you feel and be healthier.

You have just created a list of all the things you can do to take action.

 

When we start to overanalyzing and make excuses i.e. it’s not perfect enough or I don’t have time you are being a disservice to your own life and your own dream.

 

How can I help you to start acting today? Share in the comments!

mid-year review

How to do a mid-year review to ensure you’re on your path

How is this year going for you so far?

Do you feel like you’re on track? Or are your fumbling with direction and focus?

This is where a Mid-Year Review can be helpful.

It helps you evaluate the last 6 months and the progress or the lack thereof, you have made. If you are in business, check out your stats will be super helpful and even if you are not in business, a mid-year review can still have tremendous amount of benefits.

A mid-year review is like stopping to check the map and see that you are still on course for where… Click To Tweet

There are a few questions you can ask yourself:

  • What goals did I achieve?
  • What goals did I not make happen?
  • What projects did I complete?
  • What were my wins for the year so far?
  • What were my challenges?
  • What goals and projects should I continue with?

If you are in business add these:

  • How many sales did I make?
  • What were my expenses?
  • How much did I sell of each service/product?
  • What service/product should I focus on?
  • What was my website traffic?
  • What blog posts did the best?
  • What social media platforms were most effective?
  • What opt-in/freebie did the best?
  • How many e-mail subscribers do I have?
  • Where did I waste money?
  • What opportunities do I need to focus on?

Now that you know where you’ve been, you can plan ahead for the next 90-days to 6-months.

Go big and go deep! Grab that tea or coffee and spend some time dreaming and scheming!

  1. What would make the biggest impact in my life? In my business? 
  2. What does my ideal life/business look like? 
  3. What are some things I can do to get my life/business aligned with my vision?
  4. What goals and projects support what I already have going on in my life/business?
  5. What are new milestones I can reach in my life/business?
  6. What goals or projects would make me feel really excited to do in life/business?

Take a moment and look at what you wrote, and choose 3-5 goals to work on in a 90-day span. Get quiet and sit for a moment and ask yourself what would be really awesome to create first.

Write them down and then make a list of all the actions you can think it will need to make your goals and projects happen.

Sometimes we can’t see some steps and that’s okay. Your action plan is like a rough draft and you are creating the final manuscript through doing! Click To Tweet

What’s it going to take before you will take action

You have this amazing dream of writing a book, starting a business and perhaps even lose some weight. My guess you are thinking about your new year’s resolution and making some plans for 2016.

That’s great, but what are you waiting for?

Why does January 1st have to be the day you start taking action and begin your journey?

Why can’t it be right this very moment?

What is holding you back?

Is it fear of failing? Fear of disappointing yourself or others?

Worry?

The lack of not knowing how?

Every excuse you make is a bullshit reason for why you are not willing to make your dream, goal or resolution happen.

When is enough, well enough?

How much longer are you willing to just watch others make their own dreams come true while you are still wishing you could?

Here is the truth: You can!

You need to stop making excuses and start taking action – even when the fear is as loud as a damn jet engine.

Fear is just an emotion, just like anger, love, happiness etc. Are you willing to allow the emotion to rule you, or are you willing to decide how you are going to feel and what you are going to do?

I think too often, we forget that we have a choice.

We always have a choice!

When we were kids, we were told we don’t have a choice. We need to follow the rules, do as we are told. We are told to graduate highschool, go to college or learn a trade.

We are told that we should be grateful for the job we have and just go on with our mediocre life.

Yes, I said it: MEDIOCRE

Because I know you envision your life to be different. I know that you have dreams and goals that you want to achieve but because you were told you didn’t have a choice, you just let life slip on by.

What if I told you that you are in control of your life, that you have the power to choose what you will or will not do and how you will live?

Choose and Decide!

What’s it going to be? Living your life to the rules of someone else or your own?

goals

Setting goals and making it all happen

Setting goals and making it all happen

I set lots of high goals with doable action steps – every single month for personal, family and business. As a matter of fact, I have post it notes hanging on the wall of things that I need to do to reach my next goals. They are there as a constant reminder to stay focused on what I want to achieve.

In the past, I would let that get to me that the to-dos aren’t moving or changing but as I look at my list today, it has changed. I have completed a few action steps and simply replaced them with the next few steps to follow.

I will often copy my goal list into my daily planner because when I am out and about and have a “minute” to work on a goal, I seize the opportunity.

Like today, I wrote a blog post for an upcoming segment while I was sitting the library on small pieces of paper just so I wouldn’t lose my train of thought – because really I will not remember the awesome opening had I told myself I will write it down later. It never happens that way.

I review my goals monthly with a mind-map of where I want to place my focus in that current moment. This helps me make sure I am still aligned with them and allow myself to free of goals and dreams that no longer suit me.

How to reach your goal in 4 steps:

  1. Begin with making a list of 10 things you want to accomplish in one month.
  2. Take each goal and break it down into the individual task.
  3. Schedule your task to spread them out over the month.
  4. And voila at the end of the month – you will have achieved a goal or three!

It is really that simply achieving the life you envision by small steps, making changes when you must to ensure you are in alignment with you and the space around you.

I turn coffee into dreams

There’s no denying that I love my coffee. Truth be told, I’ve been drinking coffee since I was a teenager and, yes I am slightly addicted (and please spare me all the health reasons of why I should stop drinking coffee).

You see, I come from a family of coffee drinkers and at one point in my life, I was drinking coffee all day long, an average of 2 pots a day.

I like love coffee. And there were times where I had to make changes because in my last pregnancy the coffee was gross, but due to my slight coffee addiction, the headaches were insane. And so I added creamer and a few pounds.

I’ve since gone back to black coffee and drink about 3-5 cups depending when I wake up. I switched to water for the rest of the day.

I applaud the person who decided that this one little bean and engaging it with water came up with this nectar.

I sometimes, wake up to coffee in bed with a few moments of closeness with my partner.

And at other times, I sit on my deck with my cup of coffee and my journal, enjoying the sounds of nature that surrounds our home.

This is a perfect start to my day.

Coffee and I have the perfect relationship because coffee understands, and it also doesn’t talk back.

I sit and ponder about the day, conjuring ideas and my next steps. And it’s beautiful.

I know coffee get’s a bad rap at times and other’s simply don’t like it. I don’t like matcha green tea. It’s all good!

We all over our likes and dislikes and we all choose what we allow to be part of our dreams.

I choose coffee.

There was a time where my love for coffee was frowned upon. And instead, I chose to embrace it.

There’s nothing wrong with turning your coffee, or tea or other favorite things into your dreams.

But coffee and me, we get along.

I created this t-shirt to show my love for coffee and that it is really a part of my life.
