With 18 days left in 2015, it’s time to put your money where your mouth is.

This is the time where everyone and their mama is setting new intentions, new goals and new year resolutions. Whether you plan to drop a few pounds, start a new business or end a dead end relationship, your ambition will probably be gone by March. We’ve all done it before. And if you haven’t, you certainly know people who do it year after year.

The gyms are always packed in January and by late February, the treadmills are wide open and Zumba classes are empty again.

But, this time around I’m challenging you to do things differently by preparing now. Don’t wait until the new year to become a new you. Don’t wait until the clock strikes 12 to change your ways.

Take action today.

Here’s a simple way to get to prepare for 2016:

  1. Take an honest assessment of yourself. According to your 5 year plan, are you on pace to accomplish your goals? Is there an area of your life that you’ve been procrastinating about improving? Write down the things you could be doing differently.
  2. You’ve got to create an action plan to get it done. Write out at least 5 tasks to complete that will get you closer to achieving your goal.
  3. Find an accountability partner who will hold you to it! It truly takes a village to make your dreams come true, so find a friend to help you through!
  4. A goal without a deadline is just a wish. Download our free goal card, put a date on it and get to WERK!

Goal setting has been a substantial part of my success and I truly believe goals help us remain consistent in our pursuit of happiness. One of my newest goals is to educate women all around the world on ways to start living better, doing better and being better. After leaving my comfortable career, a loser abusive fiancé and dropping 25 pounds I am more empowered than ever to help others experience shifts in their lives too.

In January, I’m thrilled to launch an 8 week intense WERKstudy program where I’ll be an accountability partner, coach and supporter for women just like you. Through weekly classes, monthly mastermind meetings and more, we’ll work together to uncover your purpose, unleash your passion and get your sh*t together once and for all. Find out how you can get in.

Plus, join me for a virtual vision board experience January 3rd on Periscope. Click here to get the details.

Don’t let 2016 be just another year that you watch everyone else win. Don’t just talk about it, be about it.
