Goal Check

Happy July !

July 1st ...welcome to mid-year. Today is a great day to check in with all that you have accomplished this year thus far. Celebrate it.

Then take a realist look at anything that may be missing, that if you put into action, would make the biggest difference. Create the second half of your year.

I am reading a book called 'PUSH' by Chalene Johnson.  I love it.   In addition, my husband and I just participated in a workshop series called the 8 Pillars of Financial Greatness.  The book PUSH is largely about health (but not entirely) ... and the 8 Pillars is about money ... but really, in my mind, they kind of go together hand-in-hand even though they are completely separate and have nothing to do with each other.

Basically - you need to figure out the core value of who you are, and thus your core priorities.  What are the top 5 priorities and things that you value in this world ... health? money? career? family? time? travel? spirituality?  Whatever they are - define them.   THEN rank them.   Now that you know what is important to you, align your goals and your time spent to be in sync with those intrinsic core values of who you are, so that you are in harmony and set up for success.   If you're spending time and money volunteering at an animal shelter and donating money to them, but animal rights is not in your top 5 core values, then you may need to re-adjust.  That's just a minor example.  Trust me, I'm not against animal rights :)  I love animals, but it is not in my top 5. You can care about a lot of things ... and you can be interested in all sorts of things ... but get down to the heart of who you are, what you want and what you live for.

Remember, you really do get to decide how to design your life.

As always, make champion choices!
