MY GOALS - Short and Long Term

Incorporate “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”
~Steven Covey

“The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen”. ~Frank Lloyd Wright

Be Proactive - Assess situation and make it work. Problem Solve

“Just Do It!” ~Nike Running Shoes Advertisement

Work around Obstacles. Ask for help. Choose to “Act” instead of “React”

Begin with the End in Mind - Visualize where you want to be. Think of the “Vision” - Creative Visualization

“He who spends time adorning himself knows he is going to a dance”. ~Kenyan Saying

Preparation is the key to securing your future. Are you adorning yourself? You should be, because there’s a dance awaiting you. The dance is the future that you were destined to live. Start adorning yourself. Invest in personal growth. Read books that will prepare you for the future. Develop yourself into the kind of person who will shine on the dance floor when destiny finally says, “Here’s your chance”. Get ready! The quality of dance you expect in your future determines the amount of adorning you will do today. Raise your expectations. You shouldn’t be expecting to go to some mediocre dance. Your goal should be to dance in the most sophisticated dances reserved for the ones who have invested heavily in themselves.

“If you’re going to be thinking, you may as well think big”. ~Donald Trump

Put First Things First – Prioritize, Organize, Discipline

“Are You a Wandering Generality or a Meaningful Specific?”~ Zig Ziglar

Put a goal-oriented purpose and focus to my personal, professional and business life. Identify goals, obstacles, resources and support groups. Make choices based on my priorities.

Relentless Dedication - In order to become a meaningful specific, you must be relentlessly dedicated to making your dream come true. What are you doing on a daily basis that is adding value to your ability to fully become who you were born to be? Are you being true to the voice within you that is calling you to perform at your optimum level?
~Herman Najoli “How to Make Your Mark”

Steady Focus - Steady Focus comes from always having your vision right in front of you. Think about why you have immense success driving every day - the windshield is right in front of you and you are always looking out through it! It’s the same thing with your dream. You must keep it right in front of you. There are many ways that you can do this. Write it down and recite it throughout the day. Design your environment to remind you of your vision every day.
~Herman Najoli “How to Make Your Mark

Think Win/Win and Seek First to Understand and Then to be Understood - Both people benefit

NAMASTE’ – The Divine in me recognizes and honors the Divine in you and in that recognition lies the place where you and I are ONE.

Synergize - Synchronized Rhythm – Ebb and Flow

Flow is the natural, effortless unfolding of our life in a way that moves us toward wholeness and harmony. Things fall into place, obstacles melt away, and whatever is necessary—money, times, work, people, opportunities—appears as needed.
~The Power of Flow: Practical Ways to Transform Your Life With Meaningful Coincidence by Charlene Belitz and Meg Lundstrom

“As individuals, we have control over the frequency of our energy through our thoughts and feelings. If we predominantly focus on good thoughts and feelings, the law of attraction will match those “like” energies to us. We will attract people, circumstances, and events into our lives that will bring positive experiences to us, and we will not be attracted to negative events”. ~The Secret


“Sharpen the Saw”

Eat Well, Exercise, Sleep, Take Care of Yourself, Take Care of your Body, Do Your Personal Best

Reduce Intake of Caffeine, Refined Sugar, Alcohol, and Processed Foods

Stay away from industrially processed food products and food with trans fats and hydrogenated fats. Eating a combination of lean protein and complex carbohydrates will give you the energy you need.

Eat Several Small Meals a Day

By eating more frequently you are then increasing your metabolism, which helps fuel the only thing in your body that can actually drive burning fat in calories.

Portion Control

You don’t have to count calories in this diet, but it is important to get your body familiar with portion control. “Don’t eat until you’re stuffed. Eat until you’re satisfied,”

Drink More Water

Don’t wait until you are thirsty to drink water. If you are drinking enough, you should never get thirsty. Schedule your hydration into your day if you must–and without enough water, your body will not lose weight as quickly as you want.

Boost your Metabolism With Exercise

There is no better way to increase your calorie burning than to gain lean muscle. A pound of muscle burns approximately 50 calories a day, while a pound of fat burns approximately two calories per day–you do the math. Incorporate three, 30-minute strength-training workouts a week.


  1. You have really put thought and soul searching into your goals. I wish you the best of luck in achieving what you have set out to accomplish!

  2. Thank you for taking the time to comment on my goals. I did indeed do a bit of "soul searching" in this excercise. Now, the key is to put as many of these steps into action so it doesn't just become my "wish list" :)
