One thing that I love doing with my clients and with me personally, is planning my year around growth and development. I use a roadmap that covers all of the different areas in my life – health, wealth, business, relationships etc This roadmap plan has helped me to be focused, structured and it’s this exact formula that keeps performing year after year.
This was not always the way. In my 20’s, I spent years doing the same thing. I worked 9-5, went to yoga before work, cooked, cleaned, and met up with friends after work and partied all the way from Friday through Sunday. Did I have fun? Yes. Did it feel like a bit of a ground hog day? Yes. Did I manifest the partner of my dreams? No. Did I create the business that was successful? No. Did I allocate savings to do courses and up-skill? No.
If I think about it, I spent nearly 10 years going round in circles – no wonder I never got anywhere and ended up selling all my things and bought a one way ticket to London.
Since landing in London (6 years ago), I have planned and prioritised my personal, emotional, spiritual and entrepreneurial growth. I have said no to partying and said yes to investing in creating my dream life. I have spent more than £25,000+ on my emotional healing and re-trained as a yoga teacher, business coach and somatic therapist. Sounds like a lot of money right? When you stop buying clothes, spending £200+ a weekend of booze and food, it all adds up! I also co-created Silou activewear brand which saw international success in Selfridges, Equinox and has been featured in Vogue, Telegraph and more etc. So I know a few tips when it comes to creating and planning big things.
So let me ask you – what is it that you want to call into your life? What actions or commitment have you made towards making that goal a reality? Do you need help to plan some magic in your life?
It’s easy to say – I want to leave my job + start my own business. Or I want to put myself first this year and up my self care. Or I want to get a gym membership and feel the best I have ever felt.
We can write down goals – but if we don’t put actionable tasks behind these goals, they are just words written on a piece of paper.
We can spend years and years doing the same thing, but expecting a different result. Which is madness right! Why haven’t I got that promotion? Why haven’t I found that boyfriend? Why haven’t I saved enough to take that trip I’ve been dreaming about? Why haven’t I quit my job and started my own biz?
My yearly blueprint formula has helped me:
– Quit my 9-5
– Switched careers
– Leave a relationship that wasn’t serving me
– Called in a partner
– Moved abroad
– Created multiple income streams
What changes things is having an actual plan that is broken down into baby steps. Baby steps that go slow, but consistently in the right direction.
I’ve created an online 2 hour workshop where I am going to share with you all my secrets and tools. Are you ready to map out your blueprint for next year and start creating the life of your dreams?
