4 Essential Steps to Achieve your Goals

By Jennifer Hall | Uncategorized

Every year Maximise just gets better and better! This year I was privileged to be able to speak and I so I set about putting together the talk that I knew would motivate and get everyone starting off 2017 on the right foot!

Here are the key points of the talk on the day…

  • Make sure you know where you’re going! Set the internal sat nav to where it is you want to be, you can’t get there if you don’t know where you’re heading. Make your goal super specific.
  • The closer the goal, the harder you’ll work, the farther away the goal, the more time you have to chill! Bring that goal closer to ensure progress is made.
  • Make sure you have a clear understanding of ‘why’ you want to achieve the goal. Write down why it’s so important for you and then write down why it’s so important for the people you are serving. In order to stay motivated, you must wake each morning with a fire in your belly, a mission to change the world! If you’re not lit up by your goals, change them or tweak them until you are… you are not here to lead a lukewarm life, you’re here for a reason, let’s make that reason worth being in business!
  • Let go of the emotional attachment to what is holding you back. If what you are doing doesn’t bring you alive, you HAVE TO change something! We find it hard to let to let go of the old and change because we think about the investment we’ve made into it so far; the time, the money, the studying, the tears, the struggle etc. But if we’re unhappy we must learn to let go of what is no longer serving us, it’s not a waste, it’s all part of the journey.

We will never survive in business if we’re not aligned to our passionate ‘why’! Wishing you all the very best for 2017!

”The most controversial thing I ever did, was to stick around”

By Jennifer Hall | Uncategorized

”The most controversial thing I ever did, was to stick around” -Madonna’s acceptance speech for Woman of the Year

The whole speech was quite frankly ‘pure truth’, hard-hitting and inspiring!

Madonna, for me, symbolises standing in your own truth unapologetically!

If you haven’t watched the speech yet, I suggest you watch it, I’ll add the link at the bottom of this email.

​​That quote about sticking around, really spoke to me today.

I am currently going through an incredible up-level where by I’m stating an opinion, or put more correctly, I’m stating what I know to be truth, knowing full well there will be others out there who will point blank disagree with me.

To those people I would say ‘take the wool out of your ears’. That wool is not serving you! It will ALWAYS be the case that unless you’re ready to hear what I have to say, it will fall upon deaf ears and/or defensive ears.

But stating your opinion is harder than you first think! It’s so easy to backtrack to try and fit in with others opinions because as humans, we crave connection, and to stand out from the crowd, alienates us.

But do you know what hurts us more as business women? Saying something that no one cares about!

We will never connect with everyone! FACT! But we will connect with those who resonate with our message, who when they hear your words will resonate truth throughout their being!

​​Who are you trying to connect with?​​​​​​​ Those who disagree with you or those that love you for what you stand for?

As coaches we’d be idiots to think we had all the answers, BUT we have to stand up and help people with what we KNOW to be truth, within our zones of genius, that we KNOW will ​​get our clients to where they need to be!

Our clients need us to be strong, they need us to lead and they need us to stand in our own truth unapologetically ​​and stick around! Do not shrink back, step forward and walk your walk PROUD! Shine your amazingness and don’t let the fear of others hold you back! Don’t let your own fear of being wrong hold you back… you know what you know and you don’t know what you don’t know as my Dad used to say!

Here’s what I say (all the time)… Say what you want to say with confidence, knowing that you will always be wrong in someone else’s eyes! But to those people you resonate with, you will be inspiring and leading from the front on a mi​​ssion to make a difference to the world! That right there, is every reason for you to say your stuff, stick around unapologetically and do what you were born to do! That right there is inspiring, admirable and courageous and in complete integrity with you!

Watch this incredible woman share her words of inspiration…
