In Today’s episode, we are talking about what helped me get to this level of success and how I’m planning for 2021 and the next 3 years.

Merry Christmas everybody, I think this is a Christmas no one will ever forget. I have said before that I absolutely LOVEEEEEE this time of year. Not because of the lights and traditions but also because for me it’s a time to reflect back on my year and plan not only for the next year, but a few years out.

This past year has been massive for me. It’s my first full calendar year out on my own since leaving as an executive to a multi-million dollar digital marketing agency. Boy oh boy, my friends, there has been so much growth, not only for me but the few clients I work with. I want to share with you something that I know helped get me to this level of success and I know it will continue to serve me as I build a seven-figure business.

Merry Christmas everybody, I think this is a Christmas no one will ever forget. I have said before that I absolutely LOVEEEEEE this time of year. Not because of the lights and traditions but also because for me it’s a time to reflect back on my year and plan not only for the next year but a few years out.

This past year has been massive for me. It’s my first full calendar year out on my own since leaving as an executive to a multi-million dollar digital marketing agency. Boy oh boy, my friends, there has been so much growth, not only for me but the few clients I work with. I want to share with you something that I know helped get me to this level of success and I know it will continue to serve me as I build a seven-figure business.

I made a choice in July 2019 that no matter what I was no longer going to let fear dictate my future, and even though I had no idea how I was going to make money at the time I also decided to be happy in that moment. In a moment where I had no idea about my future and was pretty burnt out from a highly stressful and toxic job. I let it all go and I chose happiness over fear. I just knew in my core it would all work out. I didn’t know how but I had 100% faith in myself.

Reflecting back on this past year, it has been my best year yet. I have a multiple six-figure business and my husband is retiring from his day job on Christmas Eve!!

Even though I have been creating some mind drama about this…the fears creep back in…Can I sustain this? What if everything falls apart? I decided to focus on going back to happiness, how amazing this all is, and how I can’t wait to serve and help even more people break through their own mind drama and help them fail forward to success.

I also started speaking this year to college and university students virtually about becoming resilient and I am so grateful to have that opportunity and impact. In 2021 that is also a primary focus of mine.

This year I have decided to do something a little different. I am going to map out where I want to be in 3 years from now.

  • Who is the person I want to be?
  • How do I want to show up for my family and my business?
  • What do I want my life to look like?
  • How many hours a week do I want to work?
  • What size of a team do I want to have?
  • How much money am I making 3 years out…?

Then I am going to work backward and plan out my next year.

  • What projects will I focus on?
  • What do I need to do this year that will lay the foundation for my vision 3 years from now?

Maybe you have had an amazing year like me or maybe you haven’t, but what I know for sure is that somewhere along the way this past year, you have learnt valuable lessons and you can take those lessons into next year. Don’t let your past dictate your future. Focus on where you want to go.

For me, my dream is to have a 3-million dollar company where I work 3 days a week and have a small but mighty team who are making an impact in this world. Some people might say “oh Kara no one can do that” but I know people who make more than that and work less than that. For me, it’s a reality and I have always told myself if someone else can do it there is no reason why I can’t.

Your Turn

  • What is your 3-year vision?
  • What does your day look like 3 years from now?
  • How much are you working?
  • What does your life look like?

Seriously close your eyes and picture it in your mind. Maybe you are starting your day walking along the beach and you come home and have breakfast with your family. You work for 4 or 5 hours and your day is done. You have so much energy and passion you feel like a carebear bursting light out of your chest.

Doesn’t that feel great…?

  • What kind of business do you want to have?
  • How many vacations do you want to go on?

I know for me once Covid is over and the dust has settled, I will be planning some major vacations.

Do you remember when you were a kid, you would imagine what your wedding would be like or maybe your house or your spouse?

Somewhere along the way, we lost the ability to dream about our future.

It’s like life swallowed us up and we just gave up. Maybe we were burned or had a massive failure and we told ourselves the biggest lie possible… what’s the point…?

The point is if you want to achieve greatness or even – well what’s one step below greatness…okayness? hahaha just kidding – even happiness, we need to be able to dream again. You know what, if it doesn’t happen that’s ok…Remember you are happy now so yeah it would be great if that dream came true but if it doesn’t, it’s ok.

Don’t become emotionally attached to the outcome. One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is the ability to learn to go with the flow and adjust course if things are not going your way. This is a skill you can teach yourself and once you get it, your life will jump to a whole new level my friend.

So ask yourself:

  • What am I super proud of that I accomplished last year?
  • What is 1 lesson you learnt from this past year that had a big impact on you or your business?

Go into the future 3 years from now and map out life and business then come back to plan out your next year so you can lay that foundation for your 3 year plan.

And remember to find happiness now and watch how your world begins to change!

That’s it for today my friends have an amazing holiday. I truly wish you all the happiness and success you can imagine next year!
