First, sit in a quiet area with your pen and paper. Close your eyes, and visualize what you want your future to look like 5 years, 10 years, and maybe 20 years from now? What type of lifestyle have you imagined?
What tools will you need to reach the short-term goals? Make sure to include destination dates to have them become measurable. Suggested tools you can use to make things easier are 1) Trello.com; 2) Quickbooks.com; 3) if you’re a business owner, consider speaking with an advisor who can guide or help you develop a plan for retirement, delegate your estate, and create financial security for your family. Finally, determine if your current situation will allow you to reach your future goals. Be realistic with yourself and encourage yourself to gain the knowledge or skill to make things happen.
I CHALLENGE you to do something different that will get you closer to the woman you desire to be. What will it take? One small step at a time. Start by writing out your dreams and then taking the necessary steps to make it a reality. These will be your strategic goal planning steps. Don’t just write them down, but really seek what’s in your heart. Then, watch your life flourish. If you’ve tried these strategies and need or prefer working with a group, consider joining Sistah’s Circle, or SOAR? You’re sure to manifest the goals you’re expecting to achieve.
