HOW TO GET CLEAR ON YOUR GOALS IN 2018

December 14, 2017

Did you know that we're  always moving in the direction that causes us less pain? Say what...

I know what you’re thinking, nope! That’s definitely not true because every day I go to my God-awful-dead-end job, which is most definitely causing me pain. If that were true, then, I’d be moving in the direction of my dream job instead of my job.

Well hold on now, I don’t disagree that you may perceive your situation as painful. But the truth is that no matter how painful your job may be, something in your perception of your dream job is actually MORE painful than your current job/situation.  An example, please? Coming your way.

Let us take the above example. You hate your job and you want to quit and start your own business. So why aren’t you just moving in the direction of starting your business, or why don’t you have it already? One reason could be because even though you HATE your job (pain) the thought of the instability that comes with starting your business is more painful. Therefore, as long as you have that belief you will NEVER achieve your goal of starting your own business. So, if you're wondering how you can start to overcome this mindset, I've got three simple tips for you.

If you’re more visual and would like to see the YouTube video on this topic go here:

Here are three tips to help get clear:
 
Tip #1: Identify:
 
Image result for identify the problem clipart
Analyze your wants and desires, is there an area in your life that you constantly struggle with and can’t seem to get it right, maybe it’s your career or your exercise regimen or your love life. Whatever it is, you first have to get clear.
 
Tip #2: Get real:
Image result for honesty clipart
 
Now that you have decided what you want to improve, now it’s time to understand why you don’t have it. What is the “story” you have been telling yourself about why you can’t or don’t have “it.” For example, if you find yourself writing down, I’m out of shape because I have no time to exercise; now you know why you are out of shape, because in your eyes, you literally have no time.
 
Tip #3: Change your story:
Image result for story clipart
 
Here’s where the magic happens, in sticking with the above example, tell yourself this, I have all the time I need to fit-in my exercise routine so that I can accomplish my desired goal.

If you’re getting some mental resistance on step 3, think about it this way. Really? You have noooooo time? There is no way you have noooooo time. In reality, you are choosing to have no time. You can wake up 30 minutes earlier, or you can skip your favorite TV show, or you can take your full one hour lunch, and split it and walk for 30 minutes. You see, where there’s a will, there a way.

My point is this, in doing the above steps you shouldn't lie to yourself. During these steps you should acknowledge the lies/stories that have been preventing you from having the life you want. By doing so, you will move past the excuses and right into results.

 
If you want a little help and want to start aligning with your own purpose, then check out my book #Believe Dammit: 10 Principles for Attracting and Creating the Life You Crave. It's a perfect place to start considering your thoughts and the way you live your life.

HOW TO WRITE A BOOK

December 7, 2017

Hi everyone, I hope you’re having an amazing December thus far! Today, I’m tackling the broad topic of How to Write a Book. There are many things that go into writing a book, but I believe there are specific things that one needs to consider right from the start. Here are my top five tips on what you will need to do if you want to write a book. Make sure you read all the way to the end because I have a special treat for you.

If you’re more visual and would like to see the YouTube video on this topic go here:

Tip #1 Decide On Your Age Group

Image result for Book Reader

You may not realize how important it is to have this part clear as water, but I assure you that your entire story weighs heavily on your target audience. Having a clear understanding on who you’re writing for will help you create the perfect plot and sub-plots. Without knowing this, you could be setting your novel up to fail before it even gets a chance. For example, if you’re writing for middle grade and young adult, your language, your subject matter, sexual content, and age of the protagonist are all important to the story. Without knowing your age group, it will be difficult to know what to include or exclude in your story.

Tip #2: Plot Ideas

See the source image

I recommend that you write down all your plot ideas for a birds-eye view. By doing so, you’ll be able to see which plot ideas you can easily develop into a full novel and which plot ideas work well together to make as sub-plots.

Tip #3: Create Character Profiles

See the source image

Creating my characters is by far my favorite part of starting a new book. Creating profiles is fun and an essential part of your story because you must know them in detail in order to create strong and believable characters.

Tip #4: Outline Your Novel

See the source image

As I stated in my blog How to Outline Using Index Cards, there are some of us that outline and some of us that don’t. However, if this is your first time writing a book, I recommend that you outline your novel. By doing so, you’ll avoid problems such as plot wholes and pacing. The benefit of doing so is also that you’ll have a strong novel, with fully developed characters and story lines that will hit all the important parts of a novel, such as, your inciting incident, climax and conclusion. For more on this you can watch my YouTube video Outlining with Index Cards.

Tip #5: Write the First Draft

Image result for writing first draft

After you’ve done the above 4 steps, then it’s time to start writing. A really helpful tip I heard recently is that writing that first draft is you telling the story to yourself. I thought this was a great tip because it eliminates some of the pressure that comes with writing a book. Remember, above all, have fun in the process. Try to forget about the end product (the destination) and enjoy the process (the journey) of writing your book .

To help you stay on track, I created a checklist so that you don’t miss a beat while writing your first book. If you would like to get your copy click here for instant access.

HOW TO WRITE DIALOGUE

November 30, 2017

Happy last day of November! I hope you had an amazing month filled with gratitude. I want to remind you that if you didn’t sign up to receive your monthly gratitude list that it’s not too late, I’m still offering monthly lists. Tomorrow, December 1st I will be sending out December’s list, so be sure to sign up here!

Now, on to dialogue. Dialogue is one of the most important pieces of your novel and it’s why some editors/agents skip write to a section of your manuscript--that has dialogue, and begin the critiquing process right there. If your dialogue is strong, they keep on reading, if it’s not, it’s over, to the slush pile it goes. Today, I have three tips to help you write strong and effective dialogue. Make sure you read all the way to the end because I have a special treat for you.

If you’re more visual, you can check out this week’s video on the same topic here:

Tip #1: Avoid Adverbs

Image result for explain clip art

We all love to use adverbs like “grimly” but, this is a big no-no because it’s a way of explaining our dialogue. Think of it in these terms, if you have to explain your dialogue, then more often than not, your dialogue doesn’t work. There are exceptions, like softly or clearly, for you don’t say something grimly in the same way you say something softly.

Tip #2: Said is the Best Tag

Image result for he said she said clip art

We often get creative with our tags, but nothing works better than “said.” Anything else, is a form of explaining, for example, “He snapped.” Your dialogue should convey that the character has “snapped” without needing the tag as explanation.

Tip #3: Beat Anyone?

See the source image

Using a beat breaks up the dialogue and helps your reader get further immersed in the scene. For example, you can write something like this:

“But you promised,” Jess said.

“I don’t make promises,” Dave said.

“Stop fighting,” Tom said.

This could get a bit boring, but it’s necessary to add the tag because there are more than two people in the scene. But, if you add a beat, it breaks up the dialogue and helps the reader not get distracted by all the “said.”

“But you promised,” Jess said.

“I don’t make promises,” Dave said.

Tom walked over to Jess and Dave, placed his hands on their shoulders and said, “Stop fighting.”

That’s a beat!

If you want more tips like this, I created a checklist that delves deeper into this topic. In it, I provide more examples and offer detailed tips on how to create the perfect dialogue in your story. If you would like to get your copy click here for instant access.

Christmas Shopping 2017 at Barnes and Noble

November 23, 2017

Happy Thanksgiving! This is my favorite holiday by far. I love the gathering of family and friends, the tradition of watching the Macy’s Day Parade, the preparing of the feast AND eating, of course. I hope that your day is filled with love and joy.

Since the holiday season is officially upon us, and you’ll probably be doing some shopping at some point this weekend. I wanted to share with you some gift ideas for the book lover and/or writer in your life. 

As I always do, I went to Barnes & Noble this past weekend and I was so excited to find that they had broken out their holiday merch. So, the following are some of the items I found that would make the perfect gift for your Barnes & Noble lover.

If you're more visual, you can hop on over to my YouTube channel as I vlogged about my visit.

First up is one of my favorite things to do while writing or reading a book: having a pillow, a blanket and comfy socks. These are great items to have during the holiday season as it will make your house seem bright and cheerful, while also providing warmth during the winter months.

 

Most of us are already starting to think about our goals for next year so getting a calendar/planner for yourself or your loved one is a great early gift, or Christmas gift.

This was such a cute find! They're literary totes with quotes from popular literary works, and I think your book buff will love this.

Next up is calligraphy, who doesn't want to turn back the time and write with a feather? I'm determined to get one of these sets and get my calligraphy on. This would make such a cool gift for any writer who loves writing on paper, and not just digitally.

I happen to be one of those writers that loves to put pen to paper. In fact, the first draft of my novel Falling For You was written on a legal pad. So, it comes as no surprise that I think these composition books would make a perfect gift for the writer in your family.

By far, out of everything I saw, this was my favorite item. These are envelopes dedicated to different people in your life, as you can see below. They had others like, Letters to My Graduate, or to My Bride, or to My Child. As you can see from the picture, these were my favorites, which I plan on using and giving to one special someone!

That's it, I hope I gave you some unique gift ideas for your special someone and that you enjoyed my trip to the best bookstore on the planet. Remember, if you want to see the video of me at Barnes and Noble, hop on over to YouTube and remember to subscribe!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Until Next Time!

How to Take Action Toward Your Goals

November 14, 2017

Are you waiting for the right moment to come before doing what you want? For example, taking the vacation of your dreams? Moving to a new city? Taking a new job? Starting a YouTube channel?

Most of us have this thing—big or small, that we desire to do; yet, we are holding off until the stars align. The problem with this is that we don’t realize that the moment our desire was placed in us, the stars began to align. These so-called stars will not truly form until we begin to take steps to fulfill our desire. But why is it that most of us sit back and wait for the perfect circumstance to appear before we take action? I believe fear is obviously at the root of this waiting game.
 
The danger in waiting for the “perfect moment” is that IT may never come. There’s always going to be something that comes between us and that thing we want. If we allow fear to immobilize us, we may never achieve what we want, again big or small. We must be willing to jump before we are ready. 

In Lisa Nichols' book Abundance Now she gives an example of jumping before you’re ready.   She explains how people who jump out of planes jump out way before the parachute opens. “They fall a long way before achieving safety.  They have to give themselves this permission--to fall before they open their parachutes and soar.”

Nichols believes “jumping, regardless of the outcome is the real problem.” I agree with her. I believe this is at the core of why we sit by the side-lines, watching as others get to live the life we want. We are so afraid of the outcome: what if it’s not what I want? What if it’s exactly what I want and somehow my life changes? These thoughts confine us and make us live small.

Imagine this for a moment: Jumping before you’re ready.

I have a call to action this week: to simply do one thing you’ve wanted to do, and go for it without thinking of the outcome. You want to go swimming in the ocean but have been avoiding it because, well, doing so means wearing a bathing suit, and people will look at you! Simply go to the ocean and swim and don’t wait to lose the weight. Letting go of the outcome means forgetting those awful negative thoughts and just doing what you want in that moment. That moment of action will lead you to the next. Then the next. Until you are finally a person who doesn’t sit back and let life pass you by--waiting for the “right moment.” The right moment is now!

How to Find Your Authentic Voice

November 7, 2017

Happy Tuesday you guys, this is actually a funny intro because I got the idea for this post while watching myself on YouTube! LOL. how’s that for egotism.

Okay, all kidding aside, I think I’ve finally got it. For years, I’ve heard that the key to success is to be authentic. And for years, I thought I was being authentic, but I still felt like something was missing—like I knew I was being authentic, but then the “real me” knew I wasn’t. The real me knew that I was doing things to please others, instead of pleasing myself.

When it comes to writing, your business or networking, I’m telling you, the only way to be is authentic; by doing so, you will eliminate most—if not all—pressure from your life. Let me explain.

I recently created a freebie for my subscribers: a simple printable. It’s a 30 day calendar designed to my liking, which for me, included images that pertained to each month’s theme, for example this month is Thanksgiving and fall. The point of the printable was certainly more important than the design—or so I thought. The printable is a gift to my subscribers, as a thank you for being part of my community; in return they have one easy-to-fill-in calendar where they can write 5 things they are grateful for each day. Want to sign up? Click here.

Anywho, I loved designing this so much that I already created the next four months based on each month’s theme. However, as I was designing the form I started to do the usual, “well, I like this, but what if others prefer this or that.” I caught myself in the nick of time, thankfully. And this is where it all began: my finally getting that all I need to worry about when I’m creating is if I like it. I will never please everyone, and there are lots of people out there that like the same things I do, and those are the people that will choose to be part of my community.

We are not for everyone, but we are for someone. Please yourself first, and others will join you. Trying to be like someone else only causes confusion within yourself and your brand.

So, if you’ve been struggling with finding your way in this expansive universe, here are four things I recommend you do to get back on track:

  1. Stop worrying about what others are doing.
  2. Don’t worry if someone will “like” what you’re doing.
  3. Don’t look for others doing the same thing as you (uniqueness is good).
  4. Be you, you are enough. Your ideas, your likes, are good

The next time you begin a project be sure to include only your likes, and leave everyone else out of it. I hope these tips help you find your own voice.

If you want a little help and want to start aligning with your own purpose, then check out my book #Believe Dammit: 10 Principles for Attracting and Creating the Life You Crave. It's a perfect place to start considering your thoughts and the way you live your life

My First Time Bullet Journaling

November 2, 2017

Hi there, I cannot believe it’s November! What has happened to this year? Well, for me it’s been a great one and I plan on ending the year with a bang. However, I’m always searching for ways to simplify my life and work smarter not harder.  Thankfully, I just discovered a new way of planning that I believe is going to make my life a whole lot easier. I’m talking about bullet journaling.

Bullet journaling is a way to journal and plan your life in one concise space--designed by you; which means, it's as fluid as your mood. With bullet journaling you’re not restricted by other’s design or way in which they think you should organize your life. Instead, you’re in control to run your days, weeks and months as you see fit. So without further ado, here’s a little insight into how I created my bullet journal.

Side note: because it’s November (almost the end of the year) I didn’t want to start on a new journal, plus, before fully investing in this way of journaling I wanted to test it out. So that’s what I’m doing here, and will be doing for the rest of the year. Also, check out the video I did on this, it explains it further.

This is the first page for me, though typically, the first pages are of your key and index.

The next page, I used to create a calendar for the month, to write a powerful quote and then I wrote out my monthly business and personal goals.

Next, I created a tracker for the writing challenge I'm participating in this month (NanoWrimo) where I will be tracking how many words I write each day. Additionally, I will be tracking my personal goals on meditating, practicing yoga and walking.

And finally, this is how I will start each day, writing down 5 things I am grateful for. Then, I will decide what needs to be done daily, based off the monthly goals I've set for my self.

This brings me to an important point this month. If you haven't subscribed, be sure you do so because each month I'm sending you monthly lists for you to write down 5 things you're grateful for each day. Each month you'll get a new list. So be sure to sign up now.

Each day after that will be set up in the same way as this page. I will not set up "day 2" because I want to leave room to write my thoughts of the day, or quotes I hear, or a takeaway from I book I'm reading. This way, I'm not restricted in any way.

Like I mention in the video, I'm not an artist at all, and a lot of people who bullet journal have an artistic eye and they make their journal look beautiful. I will opt for stickers (as I've seen others do on plan with me videos) and pretty-it-up that way. This was my very first time trying this, so as the months goes by I'm sure I will adjust things to fit my lifestyle.

If you want to see the progress of this journal--and months to come--be sure to follow me on Instagram as I will be posting all the photos there.

Do you bullet journal? Or do you journal in a different way? Leave me a comment with your thoughts about bullet journal or letting me what works best for you.

I would love for you to follow me on Twitter and Instagram  and like my Facebook page. Through my social sites I share daily inspiration and motivation on writing and positive thinking. Also subscribe to my YouTube for more content like this.

5 Thing Stopping You From Being Successful

October 31, 2017
Though we differ in many ways, and there are many reasons why we have yet to reach success—as defined respectively, the fact remains that most of us suffer from these five life-blocking sentiments:
  1. We’re afraid we’re not talented enough 
  2. We have fear of rejection
  3. We’re afraid it’s already been done
  4. What we desire is not important enough to make a change in other people’s life
  5. We’re afraid we don’t have the right degree or training
 
On some level we all do this; we all build our lives around the things we believe most about ourselves and the world. There's a saying that goes like this, “argue for your limitations, and you get to keep them.” Keeping this quote in mind, is this the kind of life you want to build? A life built around fears and limitations? Or do you want to build your world around knowing that anything is possible. That nothing can or should stop you because others that have come before you have done “it!”
 
This is what happens when we allow this type of thinking to control our lives:
  1. Because we think we’re not talented enough, we never try anything new. 
  2. Because we have fear of rejection, we don’t put ourselves out there.
  3. Because it’s already been done, we keep our inventions tucked away at the bottom of the drawer, or worse, in the corner of our minds until it disappears completely. 
  4. Because what we have to offer is not that important,—like say, savings lives, we don’t share what could possibly save someone’s life—like a song, a story, a favorite recipe, a dance that moves someone and awakens their souls. 
  5. Because we don’t have the right degree, we don’t apply for that job, or reach for that goal because, well, there’s no point really…. 

I suggest this, any time any of the above limited beliefs creep into your thought life challenge it by asking yourself this: What will I build my next hour around, fear or bravery? By bringing to the surface that you’re about to step on that fear track, it will shake you--alert you that you’re about to play small. Never again allow fear to be the place from which your life is built. Instead be brave, take chances and live fully.

I hope you found these tips helpful, and If you haven’t done so already, I would love for you to follow me on Twitter and Instagram  and like my Facebook page. Through my social sites I share daily inspiration and motivation on writing and positive thinking. Oh, and yeah, I'm now on YouTube!

Three Powerful Tips to Living a 100% Fulfilled Life

October 24, 2017

Lately, a very important topic has been coming up for me and so I thought, hmm, better share it. For some of you this won’t be a new concept, but for some it may be the very thing you need to hear at this moment.

I’m reading Oprah Winfrey’s new book The Wisdom of Sundays. In it, she references a conversation she had with one of her guests from Supersoul Sunday, wherein they discussed the power of being present. Do you realize that we spend most of our time either thinking about the past or the future, but very rarely are we in the moment? This is a problem because when we fail to pay attention to the now, we miss out on our life.

Oprah’s guest gave a really great example; he suggests the next time you’re in the shower that you “check-in with yourself and see if you’re still in the shower.” He explained that most of us, while in the shower, are someplace else, perhaps at a Monday meeting, or having an argument with someone. He suggests that the next time we’re in the shower, to check in with ourselves and try to be in the present. The moment we check in, we’re back.

This is not the first time I’ve heard the message of being in the moment, and for me, even before my awakening, I knew the importance of paying attention to the moment I was in. When I’m in the moment, I experience peace of mind, joy and hope. When I focus on the past or the future, I lose the present and become anxious and worried. And when this happens, I then create a future I don’t want, and regret a past I can’t change.

So here are three tips to help you living in the present:

Be aware:

Awareness is key when it comes to returning to the present. Whenever you start to feel off, whether you’re feeling sadness, anger, anxious or fear, chances are that you’ve left the present and you’re somewhere off thinking something that has either passed, or hasn’t happened. So, in that moment, be aware that you have the power to feel better simply but coming back to the present.

The magical five:

But how? How do I get back to the present? It’s actually quite simple; we were created with a beautiful internal map that directs us right back to the now, your five senses. Whenever you want to return to the present but you’re stuck in your mind, pay attention to your five senses: what do you hear, see and smell? What do you taste? What can you touch? By paying attention to your senses you are now back in the present and out of your imaginary world.

Habits:

All habits aren’t bad, and I would put this one up there with the best habit to adapt. Every day practice the habit of being in the now. When you’re eating your breakfast, eat your breakfast. Really taste your food (there’s 1 of your 5 sense popping up again reminding you of the now) and avoid all distractions like your phone, TV or work. When you’re with your partner or your kids, truly pay attention to them and listen without thinking of your next move. Practice this habit at every turn and before you know it all your worries will disappear.  Because you have everything you need right now. Because right now is all we all ever have.

I hope you found these tips helpful, and If you haven’t done so already, I would love for you to follow me on Twitter and Instagram  and like my Facebook page. Through my social sites I share daily inspiration and motivation on writing and positive thinking.

How I Prepped for NanoWrimo

October 19, 2017

You guys, I’m so excited because for the first time ever I’m participating in NanoWrimo! In case you don’t know, November is National Novel Writing Month and NanoWrimo is a platform where writers come together and set a goal to complete their novel in one month (or at least the first draft). Because this is my first year, I did a lot of research on how to prepare for this event and the following are my findings.

 

October is the prep time:

Okay, so come November the only thing you should be doing is putting your story down on paper. Your time for outlining, character building, world building, and creating pre-stories is in October. So there’s where I started…

Backstory

So, I got this idea for a young adult fantasy novel and I couldn’t wait to get started. Prior to knowing I was going to participate in NanoWrimo, I started writing the first chapter of my new novel with much enthusiasm. However, I soon learned that I couldn’t write this novel the same way I’d done my other novels. As stated in my previous post How to Outline Using Index Cards, I’m usually a pantsers (someone who doesn’t outline) but I’d never written a novel quite like this one, so once I started writing I had a million questions that kept popping up—interrupting my flow. Immediately I stopped writing the first chapter and headed straight into the back story of each of my characters, their archetypes, their personalities, and began world building.

Organization time

In order to stay organized I bought a binder so that all my information was concise and in one space. This week’s YouTube video is precisely me doing that, so if you want to check out how I put my binder together, swing by. 

Calendar

I’m a full believer that if you show up for your novel, your novel will show up for you. However, in terms of setting time each day to write, I’m guilty to say I don’t always show up. I sometimes go weeks without writing my novel (usually due to my mood and less to do with time). With that said, I still wanted to see exactly what 50,000 words in 30 days looked like. So, if I want to write 50K words, this means I need to write roughly 1,666 words each day. Realistically speaking, I won’t have 30 days because it is likely I won’t be writing on Thanksgiving. Take away 1 day, now I have 29 days, now we’re up to 1,724. Okay, now I have a ballpark idea of what it will take to get this done. So, if I aim for 2,000 each day, then I will most likely accomplish my goal. See, planning is everything!

Mood

Setting the write mood when writing is always important, but I felt it was definitely a running theme while prepping for NanoWrimo. For this reason, in last week’s post My Writing Must-Heves This Fall, I took you along while I shoppped for my favorite fall items, which go hand-in-hand with prepping for NanoWrimo. Things like, my favorite mug, comfortable clothes, blankets and music are among some of my must-haves when I sit down to write.

Okay you guys, just one more tip. I wasn't always a planner, and sometimes I still find it hard to stick to a schedule, but when I do, I get so much accomplished. Often times, we resist the very things that we need. I have always been someone that thrived spontaneity and hated the rules that came with schedules--of all kinds. But I've learned that schedules  don't restrict me in any way, in fact, they free me to have more guilt-free-time to do everything I want to do without feeling like there's never enough time.

I hope you found these tips helpful and if you like the content, leave me a comment and lets continue connecting!
