I know you have big goals - and so do I.
But how do you make sure you're on the right path to where you want to go? How do you ensure that six, 12 or 18 months from now you’re not somewhere that you ever intended to be (and now in a good way!) - or worse, in the same place that you are right now?
How do you know what you need to change? We get so caught up in our lives that we forget to slow down and ask ourselves questions:
What do I want?
Is the woman I see in the mirror, the woman I want to be?
Am I living my life the way I want to live my life?
Am I living every single part of my day-to-day life in a way that will help me to live my dreams?
Personally, I allow myself to get too busy. I try to do #allthethings. I get lots of ideas, and I just go ahead and start trying to bring them to life without actually stopping to check that they’re taking me in the right direction.
When was the last time you asked yourself if you are the person you need to be in order to achieve your goals?
Uplevel Your Life in 7 Simple Steps
Declutter your physical space. This includes your wardrobe, your house as a whole and your workspace.
Take some time out. Give yourself the gift of silence and the space to evaluate your life. Embrace silence. Honor yourself, switch off, and think about only yourself and your desires. Give yourself the opportunity to connect with yourself - something which is difficult when you're busy working and looking after everyone else in your life. Reduce your social media use, turn off your notifications, don’t multitask. Shut out the noise and focus on the now. Think about the future just by being in the present.
Ask yourself: “Who do I want to be?” Your answer to this question will continuously change and evolve - even within a short period of time. Your answer might also bring up a lot of other things and will impact every area of your life. The woman you want to be - how does she look? How does she present herself? How does she act? How does she carry herself? I highly recommend lots of journaling (sometimes I spend literally hours writing down my thoughts). First thing in the morning is a great time to do this, but do it when the time feels right for you. Go deep inside of yourself, look at all aspects of your life - business and personal. Journaling will help you to design your life.
Start from the outside in. This may seem counter-intuitive, but it’s likely that your answer to the question “Who do I want to be?” will leave you wondering where on earth do you begin in order to get from where you are right now to where you want to be. The solution to this is to start to change the things of your life in an area you’re comfortable with. For example, I’m a very creative person, so naturally working on the more “creative” areas of my life first is a great place to start. In fact, and this probably won’t surprise you, I usually begin with my wardrobe! Not only is style, image and appearance an area where you can get quick and tangible results, but how you look is directly related to how you feel. And how you feel on the inside manifests on the outside.
Boost your self-care routine. I always ensure that throughout my “normal” days I regularly give myself five minutes to drink my coffee in peace and quiet, but when you’re going through this - literally life-changing - process, you’ll need more “me-time”. Allow yourself plenty of time and space for things that make you happy, even if it’s just lighting a gorgeous scented candle, taking an hour “off” to watch a couple of episodes of your favorite TV show or reading a book. Whatever it is that you need to distract you from your usual routine and help you relax. You need to be in the right headspace to think about your future. You need to be relaxed, rested and have had enough sleep. Create the emotional space you need.
Design and plan. Once you’ve detailed in writing exactly what you want, you need to make it happen. Things don't just happen by accident - you need to be intentional, and you need to know what you want in order to project and manifest your image.
Repeat regularly. Work through the previous six steps on a regular basis. The more often you do it, the less time it will take you to do it, and it will help you to stay on track. The real benefit is that not only do you redesign your style, but you redesign your entire life at the same time. This process pre-paves everything you need to do to become the person you want to be - and the bonus is that you become that person without even trying! As a Personal Branding & Style Coach, I believe true style and living a stylish life is so much more than just how you look - it’s also about how you feel about yourself and the life choices you make. Getting your style right can literally change your life in every way.
