5 Crucial Steps for a Powerful Personal Transformation

Personal development, business coaching, career success, and life changes are topics of discussion every single day but are getting the steps you need to make it happen? Well, look no further because I am about to give you the 5 Crucial Steps for a Powerful Personal Transformation that is sure to change your life.

Be Willing To Be Uncomfortable: Nothing grows from your comfort zone so when you are scared to try something new, that’s when you should strike. Waiting until you are ready to accomplish your goals, you will never move your feet. See the thing about goals that holds a lot of people up is the fear of failure. The reality is that you are going to fail at something at some point in your life. However, that failure is not your opportunity to bail on what you initially set out to do. When you make the necessary adjustments to your goals and plan of action, you gain clarity and can begin to see your goals all the way through. Anything worth having is going to take hard work.

Overnight success takes years, so be uncomfortable when you are trying something new because that is how you find your sweet spot then begin to operate in your strengths. It’s going to take trial and error before you master your skill set and even then it will be time to adjust and reinvent yourself. But for now, just try!

Learn From Others: Share your skills and talents with the people you are most in contact with that support your vision and dreams. You make your work look easy and when asked about your processes, don’t be afraid to open up. Each one teaches one, builds connections and opens doors that you could not have imagined. Being prosocial can get your name spoken highly in rooms and invitations to be a part of masterminds, simply because you shared.

You are capable of learning the same things: time management, organization, leadership, followership, and a host of other things. But do you know how to maximize your mastery of those skills? Now disclaimer, I am not a business or life coach, I just strongly believe in personal transformation and learning how to put yourself in positions to learn from others is a win/win.

Record Your Outcome: It is such a smart idea to put things in writing because it becomes stamped to your brain which causes you to remember. A journal, a notebook, or even a planner  is helpful when you track your progress so you can look back on your journey. It is so important to record and reflect on your personal transformation because your goals challenge you to be a better person and show up for yourself EVERY single day. Once you begin to check tasks off of your list, you will celebrate the steps you are taking and be glad that you kickstarted your transformation.

Be The Outcome: You will slip and fall many times in life but what’s most important is YOU STAND BACK UP! Once you take that initial step and monitor your progress, you set yourself up for longevity and setting new attainable goals because you are committed to the process. I know it’s scary but when you manifest your dreams and actually put in the work; you become the outcome.

Be Your Biggest Cheerleader: Before I joined a sorority, I was Me Phi Me, and that is the attitude you have to take to crush your goals. No it will not be easy and everyday will not be sunny, but there are going to be times you’ll have to block the distractions and do exactly what you said you would. Root for yourself! Clap for yourself even when the room is silent, and cheer louder for the people in the back to hear you as you GLAM up your life.

These six steps will help you push forward no matter what is  going on around you and keep you focused in your business, career, or personal life. 

This journey is personal, but YOU are worth it.

The G.L.A.M. Planner

~Gratitude~Life~Affirmations~Manifestation~

I told myself that 2021 was going to be a different year. I knew I had to do things a little differently if I wanted to be successful in my business as an edupreneur, so I restructured a little bit.

My purpose became more clear when I got laser focused on the journey into entrepreneurship that I have take so far. I have attempted many things, books, teeshirts, and e-products, but nothing stood out quite like planning, creating and designing my own planner.

For the past 9 weeks, I showed up consistently to my coaching calls and created something that will add much value not only to my life but to many others as well.

It took some planning and patience, but it is truly happening and I had to share with ya’ll because I am so thankful to be in this place, CREATIVELY!

The G.L.A.M. Planner is your monthly guide to identifying your strengths and setting attainable goals that will promote your productivity. This planner represents the minimalist that’s ready for change and needs the steps that will encourage self-identity and capabilities.

Attention to Detail Will Save You A Lot of Time

You have a systematic way of completing tasks in your day-to-day, whether you are working on your business, completing checklists for your career, or organizing your home. The amount of time you spend completing these things requires a certain amount of attention to ensure all of the details are taken care of. 

I can think back to when I was in basic training for the United States Air Force when we had learned certain duties like how to fold our bed, properly blouse our uniform pants, and march in formation. Those tasks were preparing us for inspections and our final march onto the field at graduation. At the age of 19, those things did not seem to hold as much value, and it was not until I was active duty Air Force and at my first duty station that it all made sense. Being taught not to rush and maintain a clean appearance paid off, which has had a lasting impact on how I approach tasks.

Your attention to detail is not only crucial when it comes to identifying your unique skill set but has a significant impact on your organizational skills and how you prioritize your time. When you list your skills, interests, and talents, you are paying particular attention to the order in which you write things down on paper. Only you know how well you can execute certain tasks and the details required to remain an expert in your field.

If you run an unorganized business, your customers will leave bad reviews, and if you are unorganized at work, your evaluators will provide you with less than favorable feedback for your efforts. The goal is to be more productive versus busy. If you are busy making mistakes because of your lack of attention to detail, you will spend time correcting your errors and costing yourself or even your employer time and resources down the road. 

When you enter the room, your personal brand should speak for you before you begin to work. Being thorough even on the smallest task carries a lot of weight when you are responsible for handling it. You exude your ability to pay attention to detail in what you say and, most importantly, in how efficiently you complete your duties.

You will need a keen sense of situational awareness when placing your energy and effort into the details that become expected of you. The increase in your individual productivity is in the details that you sometimes neglect with the mindset of having time to fix “it” later. The “it” now becomes a hindrance and distraction, which should be avoided as you circumvent being busy with producing intentional outcomes. The more efficient you are, the more valuable you become in the execution of your business, productivity in your career, and your overall personal transformation as you knock out goals in your life.

As you adjust your mindset to focus on the details and plan accordingly, the people around you will be influenced to do so as well. High-quality should never be compromised at the expense of taking shortcuts. You have already outlined your core values, so now you are tasked with leading by example the details that exemplify your skills, capabilities, and talents.

In 2021 I am walking by FAITH, not by sight.

The first quarter of 2021 has been eye-opening and I’m feeling so good about the direction that my business is headed. Being an entrepreneur is not easy and I have definitely failed over the years. I started this business journey in 2016 and I have had to give myself a lot of grace. I have cried and I have felt like giving up over the years, but which second thought I realize that I am pushing towards my purpose.

5 Steps to Goal Setting

You have to know which direction you want to go in life in order to be the best you that you strive to be. It’s not easy running yourself into the ground then realizing you still have not made the progress you want to make. It has been said that the things you spend the majority of your time on is what you care about the most, so in turn why not spend time carving out goals that fit your future and not your past. After all, it’s time to make a change in your life when you’ve done the same things the same way in your life and have not got your desired results. So walk with me through the five steps to goal setting.

Set Goals Based on Your Motivated Interests

The vision that you have for your life is for you. You don’t have to explain the moves that you make as long as you are satisfied with them. Ultimately you are motivated by your skills, interests, and talents; so your goals are a reflection of your personal needs. Whether you are setting stepping stone goals because you are seeking a transformation in a certain area of your life or long term goals, be clear on your top 5 goals and stay motivated. Listen, you are responsible for making things happen in your life, so take accountability for your goals and don’t give up at the first sign of difficulty.

Set SMART Goals

The acronym SMART is universally known as the best way to go about goal setting. Of course when it is broken down it makes sense and before anything you must be SPECIFIC about the goals you set so that you avoid being too broad. What you hope to achieve should be clear in focus so that you can easily track your progress. Having MEASURABLE goals puts your focus into perspective. How long will it take to accomplish your goals? Give yourself a real number value in weeks and/or months to measure your progress. Now the ATTAINABILITY aspect of your goals is important because your goals should fit your life and be something that you are capable of achieving. Your skillset is the key to your capabilities. 

You are living in the real world, you must also be REALISTIC about your goals and not set your standards and expectations above your reach. The last thing you should do is set an impossible goal which is why you must also set a deadline. A TIMED goal will give you the push you need to make sure you give your goals your best effort. Don’t be afraid to set a deadline because they are needed.

Write Down Your Goals

Science says that when you put something in writing it commutes to your brain which causes you to remember. A journal, a notebook, or even a planner and picture your higher self and show up for your goals EVERY single day. Once you begin to check objectives and tasks off of your list, you will celebrate the steps you are taking and be glad that you kickstarted your transformation.

Put a Plan in Action

Decide for yourself what is the path for setting your goals and put that plan into action. Once you have identified your unique skill set, prioritize your goals by your strengths that way you feel extra motivated because you know who you are and your capabilities. 3-5 small tasks daily will feed into your overall list of big goals that you have set for yourself. The good thing about having a plan is that you have a foundation and you are allowed to make adjustments as necessary.

Work the Plan

The hardest part about setting new goals is the discomfort you feel as you push past your comfort zone. When things get too rough, you have the tendency to give up not realizing that the finish line is near. Usually things get harder around you before it gets better. Give yourself some grace and know that everyday will not be easy because LIFE happens.

Conclusion

Stop putting off until tomorrow what you can get done today.

It feels good when you are on top and being more productive than busy. Share your journey with me at @getrightwithdoc@latilyarashon.com or leave a comment.
