“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.” -Tony Robbins

Yes, I know I haven’t posted in three weeks and I apologize. It was a rough semester and finals hit me harder than any semester I’ve had thus far. Let’s hope it’s the hardest semester I ever have, honestly. I also am aware that I am posting this on a Tuesday rather than a Monday because yesterday I was babysitting and then cleaning house. 

Based on the title, I’m sure you can all guess what I am going to write about. Yep, you guessed it, goals. But what kind of goals? My game plan for making my goals for 2019. I actually posted something on my Instagram recently that moved me to write this post and there will be a part two closer to the end of the year.

So, with that, I want to share how I decide on goals. In order to do this, I did my usual Level 10 Life page for my bullet journal. If you don’t know what  Level 10 Life is, it’s from Hal Elrod’s book Miracle Morning, which I recommend reading to anyone and everyone because it will help you so much. To tell you a little bit about it, we split our lives into 10 categories and rate where we think we are in those categories; physical environment, family and friends, personal growth and development, spirituality, finances, career (or school), significant other/romance (or personal relationships in general), fun and recreation, contribution/giving, and health/fitness. I like to pray before I do it but that’s me, it’s not required or even brought up in the book.

Not only did I evaluate myself, I also looked at my 30 before 30 list to see what I see could be done in the next year. This year, I was able to check off a few and it felt so good. I have 3 more years to get it all done and I know it’s doable if I actually set goals to achieve each item on the list. You’re supposed to break bigger goals down into smaller ones anyway, right?

Anyway, I hope this helps you. I would honestly encourage you to evaluate your life with the  Level 10 Life before the end of the year and make your new year’s resolutions based on your results. Let me know in the comments you category you need most help on and I just might do a blog post on it.

As always, thank you for visiting and I hope you return! Have an excellent week!

After much consideration, I decided to make a 26 before 26 list. With help from my friend Jewel and my husband, I put together a list of 26 things I want to get done in the next year. If you read my post about 25 before 25 post, then you saw that I 16930552_10208900352046276_313945688_owas unable to complete it and you might be wondering why I would do another one. Well, one thing is for sure; I am definitely giving myself more than just a couple months this time so there is a better chance of me completing all 26 items. I’m determined to do it this time! I even added pictures to represent them to my vision board, to learn more about that, click here. Here is my 26 before 26 list:

  1. Finish a 5K Checked box symbol

I am very optimistic about this list and I know that I can do it. And to help you know that you can do it too, go watch this video on YouTube from the Steve Harvey Show. Please share with us what you are hoping to accomplish before your next birthday. As always, thank you for reading. If you want to enjoy more content from me, follow my blog.

More and more people are reading self help books and there are millions to choose from. As most of my readers know I am into Bullet Journaling, see my post here. When I was brand new to the journey back in July 2016, I joined many Bullet Journal groups on Facebook to help me get inspiration for this new journey I was embarking on. Through these groups, I kept seeing pages they called Level 10 Life. I thought it was interesting and I finally decided last week that I wanted to know what it was and why everyone was doing it. I found out where it came from. A self help book, I wasn’t too thrilled. I didn’t want to read it, there’s nothing any book could tell me that I didn’t already here from other people in my life. I brushed it off. Well, curiosity got the best of me and I finally caved and checked the book out from my local library and I am so glad I did. You’re probably thinking “is she ever going to share what the book is called?” I know, I know, I just went on a little tangent and never told you what the book is called. Well, it’s called The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life Before 8AM by Hal Elrod. I started reading it a few days ago and I love it. I thought it was going to be like everything I’ve always heard but it’s not. The Miracle Morning is really life changing but I don’t want you to take it from me. There are thousands of videos from people who have improved their life by incorporating Hal’s morning routine into their day. You can find many of them here.

If you have read the book, please comment with how it have changed your life. I have only done it for a couple of days and exercise alone has made me feel like a better person. I, personally, get up at 4:30am, which is when my husband gets up to get ready for work, and I begin my day. I pray, exercise, and read. I’m trying to get each of Hal’s Life S.A.V.E.R.S. to work and I’m adding a little at a time, as to not overwhelm myself. From there I do homework and house cleaning. Since I have started this routine, I have been getting to sleep earlier, which was an issue for me. I am so glad I started this and I am grateful for all the people in all of the Bullet Journal groups who shared their experiences because if they hadn’t, I may not have ever had the pleasure of reading The Miracle Morning.
