I can’t believe we’re so close to the end of the year! Are you where you want to be in your virtual assistant business right now?
Did you set goals at the beginning of the year, only to tuck them away and never look at them again?
If that’s you, don’t beat yourself up about it. Today is a new day, so course correct and start working on what you really want your business and life to look like.
Here are 3 ways you can start working on your goals right now:
–1. Set Goals
I don’t believe it’s ever too late to create goals and a plan to achieve them. Yes, some people do like to take some time at the end or beginning of the year to work on their goals (I’m one of those people.) If that’s you—or you want it to be you—read this to help with your own plan:
But there’s really no “right” time to work on this kind of thing. I think it’s less important when you do it and more important that you just do it, get started and keep checking in with yourself along the way.
That’s how I like to tackle it. Yes, I create goals for myself at the beginning of the year, but then I keep them somewhere I can see them every day. I work on tasks that will make those goals happen. And then I regularly check in to see if I’m making progress.
–2. Start the Day with Intention
I have a quick and easy way that I start my day so that I’m in the right mindset, and sticking with tasks that will help me reach my goals.
I’ve always wanted to be that person who starts their day out with meditation and then takes 20 minutes to journal, sitting in a quiet space with a hot cup of tea.
But let’s face it—that’s not my life. I have a little one at home, and my mornings consist of getting him up and ready for school, making sure he eats and gets dressed, making his lunch, feeding the dog and taking her out—you get the idea.
But then I found something that does work for me. I might not do it as soon as I get up, but I figured out how to get my morning “me” time. After I get the little guy on the bus, I head straight to the gym. When I come home, I shower and dress for the day.
Then, before I start any work, I take just a couple of minutes and practice this exercise. It’s a short and sweet quote that I found from Jack Canfield, and it’s really been working for me:
In case you can’t see the image, it says, “Decide what you want. Believe you can have it. Believe you deserve it and believe it’s possible for you.
And then close your eyes every day for several minutes, and visualize already having what you want, feeling the feelings of already having it.
Come out of that and focus on what you’re grateful for already, and really enjoy it. Then go into your day and release it to the Universe. Trust that the Universe will figure out how to manifest it.” ~Jack Canfield

–3. Believe That You Can

I don’t want to get too woo-woo on you, but I believe success comes from having a good mix of the right mindset (knowing that you deserve things) and taking action towards the goals that you want.
