It’s time to prepare for the second half of the year. No, we aren’t waiting until January to figure this out. We’re starting now. You know all the plans and dreams you had before life got in the way. Have you thought about what would make you a better you? What does your life look like for the remainder of the year? What do you need to take action to fulfill your dreams?

When 2018 started I had to get honest with myself and ask “what exactly does Takisha want? And how is she going to get it.”

Trust me there was a time I didn’t have any idea. I barely knew who Takisha was anymore. I didn’t have time to dream or think about anything but the present because it was always something else that needed to be taken care of. Then I didn’t feel emotionally ready to unload all the ideas and thoughts I had in my head. So I kept pushing it off until I eventually forgot about it and what I wanted. Don’t let this be you.

In preparation for the rest of 2018, I challenge you to unload all the thoughts that need to come out. I challenge you to dream of what next year is like and what you’re like. What ideas have you been dreaming about or wanting to do but you’ve kept putting it off? What are you going to do differently? What are you going to educate yourself on?

So get out your notebook and write. Write about:

  • What you want
  • What you selfishly won’t tolerate any more
  • Your dreams
  • Your prayers
  • Your affirmations
  • Where you want to see yourself
  • How you need to get there
  • Who can help you along the way
  • Your business vision and the products you want to create.

Write out what your goals, dreams, and visions are AND how you’re going to achieve them. The first step in your journey to better is determining exactly what you want. The second step is doing something to actually get what you want. The third step is not giving up on yourself along the way.
