Happy August 1st Y’all! I’m all about setting goals and having people hold me accountable for reaching said goals. For August I want to keep it simple. When I set goals I make sure they are attainable (why else would we set goals right?) Some are a bit tougher than others, but I’m always up for a challenge.
I want to be more intentional with my thoughts, my words and even my blog. By being intentional I can help myself create the life I want. I’m currently reading a book called The Secret which talks about how your thoughts can transform your life.
So I want to intentionally think positive thoughts even when I don’t feel like it. Or doing the work even when no one is cheering me on, because I know the life I want for myself.
Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step. -Dr. Martin Luther king Jr.
Lately I’ve been waking up a 6:00 am mainly because of Cole (my sisters dog aka my dog) always wakes me up so that he can go to the bathroom. I normally take this time to get a little workout in myself, but lately I’ve just been feeling blah. So I am going to re-commit to walking him everyday, which he loves.
In January I set a goal for myself to read at least 12 books this year. WELL it started out great, however by May I lost my momentum. Books just didn’t seem that interesting to me or maybe it was just the books I was reading? During the last week in July I decided to read The Secret by Rhonda Byrne which I mentioned earlier. It’s sooooo good. Here’s a few quotes. Let me know if you want a full review. I’m also in need of more book suggestions
When you want to change your circumstances, you must first change your thinking. – Lisa Nichols
See yourself living in abundance and you will attract it. It works every time with every person. – Bob Proctor
Grow My Email List
This is probably my most difficult goal. Growing an email list is like pulling teeth for me. I’m still trying to figure out the best way to go about this so if you have any suggestions I am happy to hear them.
That’s it! These are my goals for August, as always I will cross off each goal as it is accomplished.
What are your goals for August?
