Staying In My Lane

stay_in_your_lane

These days, people often use the phrase “staying in your own lane” to mean minding your own business: don’t tell me what to do, or how to live my life.

In my personal life, I have pretty clear boundaries (either stated or implied) with my friends or significant other. Friends usually know not to push too hard about things like our relationships, our religion or our politics. Well my birthday was this week and I tried to make goals for my new “birth year” But I can only came up with one:

Quit trying to lead everyone else’s life, and focus on yours.

I give my opinion willingly. I found this probably isn’t a good idea. Focusing on my  own goals during this year can only benefit my progress. I have a couple things I want to build and grow. Here some ideas to get there:

  • Stop being vague. When it comes to my personal goals, I make goals that I have difficulty in achieving, and a major reason is because my goals aren’t specific enough. The same is true with my business goals. I have to create a vague goal for growth. I have to be incredibly specific in how I’m going to accomplish it.
  • Create a snowball. When I’m trying to create a plan for growing my business, it can be hard to know where to begin. I’m trying to pick some easy, low-hanging fruit. These are items that I already know need to be addressed and can be done quickly.  When you tackle small, easy items first, it creates momentum.
  • Get everyone on the same page.  Everybody who works with Solstice has to be on the same page, and understand the vision of growth and commit to it. My team at Solstice Retreats is committed to the growth and excited to see it happen. 
  • Be the leader that lives inside of me. This is the picture in my bathroom.

Mustafa knew his heart. I just wanna know my mine better.

Quote for the week: Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe with you.

Peace,

Yvette
