Are you conscious about how you’re creating momentum in your life and business? Being a Conscious Entrepreneur is really all about being aware and creating opportunities for growth every day. And that’s what momentum is all about. So, here’s how you can make the next 3 months a success.
1. Reflect on your past 3-6 months
Taking all aspects of your life into account, what have the past 3-6 months looked like. What change have you made? Which parts are you happy with and what are you unsatisfied with?
Grab your journal and reflect on the different aspects of your life: relationships, self-care, mental wellbeing, physical health, business, professional development, community (and anything else you value in your life).
Look at what didn’t go well and why – really assess the situation. Put down your wins, because it is so often that we focus more on our failures than our successes.
2. Accept your journey
An essential part of building momentum is to accept ALL the parts of your journey – the good and the bad. Accepting includes celebrating your growth and showering self-love on your setbacks.
Growth and momentum is not about perfection, it’s about getting up despite your many failures – and acceptance is the only way forward. If we allow our setbacks to determine the stories we tell ourselves, we will continue to hold ourselves back.
3. Dream big!
The human brain is built for dreaming big – so use that part of your mind to create motivation and inspiration to move forward.
Write down your vision for the future and your daring goals for the next 3 months. It’s not about being realistic, it’s about activating your inner power, creativity and optimism – the parts of you that will help you grow and step into your fullest potential.
It can help to write down your vision and goals in present tense. These can then become powerful affirmations that will lead you forward and motivate you to keep going.
If you need help, take a few minutes visualizing.
4. Define your actions – habits, rituals and routines
What are the actions that you need to take that will pull you forward towards your goals? What habits, rituals and routines need to be a part of your life?
Determine all the things you want to start doing, as well as all the things you want to stop doing. When you’ve written down the important actions you want to take, you can consciously create habit hooks to make new habits easier.
For example, put your workout clothes by the bed so that you get them on and get motivated directly in the morning. Once you have a habit hooked your brain will begin take action automatically.
5. Take aligned and inspired action immediately
Using the inspiration and motivation you feel after doing the above points, do one or two things immediately that are on your list of actions.
Taking action will spur you forward and give you more motivation to continue.
6. Rest and recover
This is something that far too often is ignored in teaching about goal-setting. Resting and recovering is essential for your brain to work at its best capacity and to keep your energy high.
That’s why “sleeping on it” is actually such powerful advice. Giving your brain time to take it all in and set you up for success is essential.
So disconnect and prioritize your self care and most importantly your sleep.
