Goals Mantra

The 90 Day Challenge!

With less than 90 days to go before the year pulls to a close…chase those goals!!!

In my years of working on and researching this whole goal setting business, I notice that it can be a rough ride every once in a way. And when I reach this part of the year, I spend some time reflecting on the year that has gone by – what I set out to achieve, where I am at, what items are off the check list, which ones are a work in progress and which ones are still cold as hell!

It is easier to beat yourself up at this stage, if you focus on what has not got done yet. Especially for those of us who are super tough on ourselves, it can even be devastating.

Here’s a simple way to pick yourself up, and make the next 90 days count!

Consolidate – I cannot emphasize enough the magic of this exercise and the effect it has on your energy. When you start by noting down all that you have got done so far, appreciate your hard work and journey, your energy levels are far higher than when you started. This makes it a great frequency to be in, as you plan forward, instead of allowing self-criticism take over and really plummet your vibration. So keep it high!!!

Re-strategize – There is no rule in the book that says you cannot alter your goals or revise them any time of the year. Remember, we set goals, so we enjoy the journey, feel calm, get a sense of control on where we are headed and what we want to experience at the end of the day. So it is perfectly fine to alter them if you feel you’ve outgrown them, they are no longer meaningful to you, life has evolved and your priorities have changed or any other genuine reason you feel drawn to, to make a shift.

Fuel up – Now that you have re planned your goals, stopped the self-beating and pulled up your socks for the next leg of this journey – fasten your seat belt, plan in detail, schedule blocks of time each day to work on the goals, use tools like the hour of power to keep you fueled up and make you super productive.

Get relentless – Remove all that comes in the way of you achieving those goals now! Use the tools, do the drill and above all simply become RELENTLESS. Note your progress each day, keep an eagle’s eye on where you are spending your maximum time, prioritize and say NO to anything that takes you away from your goal, just for these 90 days.

Winners Never Quit, Quitters Never Win – Vince Lombardi

See, the reason why these 90 days are important is because I believe this is your opportunity to taste blood. An entire year to wake up at 5 am, do the work out, chase the goals you set and keep to the regiment can sometimes feel very uphill and long drawn. So when we chunk it down to these last 90 days, the mind feels – ‘oh this is just temporary and a short goal’, hence the resistance automatically comes down and gives you a window of opportunity to go all out….like you do in a sprint! Give it your best shot, shoot through the finish lines and experience a quantum leap first hand.

To all the naysayers – I challenge you on this one! Try it!
To all the ones who’ve given up – come on pick yourselves up! Just because you couldn’t do it earlier, does not mean you can’t do it now. Shut out the voice of judgement.
To the ‘I can do this’ lot of you – ready, steady and go go go!!!!

To the life of your dreams,
Leena Munot

7 fail proof tips to Mastery – Part 2 of 2

7 tips to mastery continued….2 of 2

TIP 4/7 – FIND A RHYTHM AND MAKE IT YOURS!

Most successful people attribute their productivity and consistency to their morning rituals. Whether you are a morning or an evening person, this works – find your rhythm. This is a simple one yet very potent – the Hour of Power. Dedicate 60 minutes to this routine each day and you’ll find yourself set into a routine.

20 minutes – go for a walk, work up a sweat, dance – anything to increase your heart rate and pulse. This releases dopamine in your blood stream making your entire physiology and mind become alert and open.

20 min – read and visualize your written goals (don’t have them yet? No worries, spend 30 minutes today and write down your top 3 goals and why you want to achieve them) During this time feel the experience of that goal becoming a reality and take in the feel of how it feels to be there. Anchor this feeling in your heart each day and you’ll start to attract the right resources and find yourself in the right place, at the right time.

20 min – wrap up the hour by reading something uplifting and inspiring to put you in the right frame of mind. NEWSPAPERS are not in this category for sure! You could read a book, watch a video, listen to some audio books or podcasts and infuse your mind with thoughts of possibility, dreaming big and rewiring your mind in the most amazing way.

This hour of power can also be crunched to 15 minutes by spending 5 minutes on each step (only when you genuinely cannot dedicate the time) and slowly you increase the time.This is a great tool to find your rhythm and to stick it to manifest mastery!

TIP 5/7 – SEEK INSPIRATION

While motivation is external, inspiration is what comes from within and fuels your days with an undying spirit to go out there and craft the life of your dreams. But there are days and weeks on end, where we feel off colour, lost in the fire fighting and making it through to the next day feels like climbing a massive mountain. Hold on. Breathe. This is not just you…it happens to most people and very often.

And that is why this tip makes so much sense. Seek inspiration on a daily basis – tune out of work and tune in to yourself for atleast 20 minutes everyday. During these 20 minutes, go out for some fresh air, be in nature, walk down to a nearby cafe, read a book, play your favourite music and go for a quick run… become fully present in your here and now and breathe in gratitude for this day. Once you are refuelled you get straight back into work and create magic!

TIP 6/7 – RESIST THE SABOTEUR

Here’s the thing about doing your greatest work: as you get closer to what you’re truly capable of producing, your ego will subconsciously seduce you to stop moving in that direction. You’ll feel like Skyping the office or checking your Instagram feed or taking a nap, thirst will kick in, you may yawn ….or many such distractions will crop up and try to do everything to steer you off course.

Don’t let your lower self cause you to betray the gifts embedded in you. Your loved ones need you to fly. And our world will be a whole lot better off when the brilliance of your light shines. So stick to the desk, do your job and to the little voice that so badly wants to keep you stuck…listen to this voice…and say thanks for sharing…and move on. No matter what we do…this little voice…lives inside us as long as we live. Asking us to snuggle up deeper in bed when the alarm goes off, making us sit a little longer on that social media page trying to keep us from doing our greatest work… and so on. Pick yourself up, cut the noise and move one step ahead at a time.

TIP 7/7 – REWARD THE WINS!

In my years of studying goal setting and the science of achieving them, i find a common thread. Most often people are stuck in a weird loop – set a goal, achieve it, set another goal, achieve it, set yet another goal, go on and achieve it or may be not….Not being able to achieve your goals can slowly and steadily build the baggage of guilt, reduce your steam and make achieving the next goal a herculean task. Is this you? Well, it is most of us at some point in time…

To crack free from this guilt, i’ve noticed two things work brilliantly well. First is to consolidate the journey from where you started to how far you’ve come. Acknowledge it. You may not have made it to the end, but you’ve surely moved ahead and navigated your way a little ahead. Appreciate it. And the one that nails it all is REWARD YOUR WINS. What if you set a goal, achieve it…and before you get on with the next one, you take time out and take in this success, celebrate it and reward yourself for the good work!

Research shows when you celebrate a win, and reward yourself – you increase the chances of repeating this success with the next goal. Why? Simple – what gets appreciated, appreciates in your life – you become and attract more of that which you appreciate. So the next time you set a goal and achieve it – remember to complete the loop by rewarding your win!
