When it comes to goal setting, I want you to stick to your gut and stick to what is burning inside--do not feel like you need to defend yourself for the goals you set! As long as they are healthy, positive, and are moving the needle forward, they are worth it and are goals to be proud of.
Along with defending certain goals you may have, do you feel like you have to defend YOURSELF to others? Explain yourself, explain your decisions, explain your motives and every move you are making? This constant defensive mindset will keep you from growing in confidence to move your life forward; it will keep you from trusting yourself and trusting that you are making the correct decisions for you and your wellbeing.
Now, there are times when we find ourselves being more defensive and short with others in various situations. I want to touch upon that this can be due at times to an internal feeling that you have that is leaving you not feeling physically or emotionally well. It could be an uneasy, icky, feeling of paranoia and if it is, there is generally a reason you are feeling it and it could come from doubt in yourself.
Have you ever felt this way?

Growth takes forward thinking and a perspective on your previous experiences in life and where you can and need to make changes in order to move forward. Do you evaluate your previous actions? Do you think about the decisions you have made and if you are proud of them or if you wish you would have done differently? With each new advancement you make, it is important to reflect upon how you have grown through the process.
Reflections on your mindset, your relationships with loved ones, strangers, and even yourself, as well as evaluation of your priorities can help you mold a new area of growth.

I want to focus this last episode of 2016 on reflection and setting yourself up for the new year rather than JUST setting resolutions.
With New Year's resolutions, we often times set goals that may be difficult to meet or we lose sight of these goals relatively quickly after setting them. Resolutions alone do not set ourselves up for long term growth. I believe resolutions are more so like bandaids to cover something that should be corrected or improved for long term success.
Most of the time, resolutions are created out of desperation and short term success. More simply, they don't work. Or last.
In this podcast episode, I dig deep into this process and how you can create new goals, habits, and lifestyle changes that last rather than dissipate because your mindset isn't necessarily determined.
What you allow will always continue. Good and bad.
Now go out and dig deep!
Holiday season or not, setting ourselves up for success is the key to feeling productive and stress-free. Being a week from Christmas, I wanted so share a few simple steps that can be applied immediately to enable you to feel comfortable taking a step back and relaxing.
We all have different schedules and agendas with work and with leading up to a holiday vacation; as well as when we return from the vacation! These steps can provide any person with any agenda at any time of the year relief to find more peace in stressful times.
Improving our productivity begins with awareness, a routine and a system--and sticking to it them! In the newest episode of CHANGE by CHOICE I will elaborate on this as well as discuss the remaining productivity hacks.
Finding the "sweet spot" in our growth, learning, and journey takes trusting the process. And within the process, takes multiple struggles. They aren't comfortable and sometimes they bring doubt but working through the struggle as we continue to trust the process makes all of the hard work WORTH IT.
In this podcast episode of Change by Choice, we discuss the process, how to honor it, how to retrain and reframe our mindset, and how embrace the struggles without pushing them away; all in order to grow into the person we are meant to become.
Anger is an emotional that holds many people back. Brendon Burchard says, “Anger is either worry or hurt most of the time.” It takes a shift in perspective and for us to put ourselves in another’s shoes to try to understand where their anger comes from. By understanding the anger, we can take a step back from it and evaluate it from an angle that will keep us from being caught up in the emotions. When we get caught up in the emotions, we become defensive and shameful. Listen to this episode of CHANGE by CHOICE to learn about how we can approach anger and how we can control our emotions when dealing with another person’s anger.
