5 Secrets Lesson 1

Yay – you’re here!!

Yesterday, I announced my free mini-course: 5 Secrets for Getting What You Want where I shared with you what you can expect from this course and your first step in creating the kind of life you can completely fall in love with.

If you missed the first step and wonder what this is all about, check it out here: How to Get What You Want

If you’re tired of feeling overwhelmed (or maybe even unimpressed) with life as you know it, you’re going to love this course!


Throughout the course, I’ll be offering free coaching here on my blog – it’s easy to take advantage of – just leave a comment!

Rather than make you sign up to receive a single handout from me on how to live live on your terms (that’s what this course is really about), I decided to offer it as a course live and in-person, on my blog for a couple of reasons.

  1. I know that you’re probably just as overwhelmed with your email inbox as I am.
  2. I know how easy it is to get super excited about some new offer and put your name and email in that inviting little form, and then forget all about it.

By offering it here, you have the option of taking advantage of the goodness without signing up for anything, AND…

Since it’s split into 5 parts, you’re more likely to actually do something with it.

I know, it’s counter-intuitive, isn’t it?

But it works.

I know you don’t know me very well…

That’s the main reason I decided to give you options.

I don’t want you to simply “sign up for my list” and then never read another email from me.

That really sucks, but I know it happens.

I want to “bring what I’ve got to the table,” so you know what you’re missing if you’re not opening my emails.

I’m committed to giving you spine-tingling, toe-curling, life-altering tips. I don’t want you to miss out on that, so grab your favorite beverage, kick back and let’s change your life for the better, shall we?

Are you ready?

Don’t forget to bookmark this page.

And while you’re at it, grab that pretty little smart phone of yours and set a reminder to come back here tomorrow, will you? Because this is important stuff! I don’t want you to miss out!!

Let’s get started, shall we?

Secret for Getting What You Want #1:


Often, part of the problem that people encounter when trying to make a change is that they’re not 100% clear about exactly what it is that they want.

I quoted it in my last post, but this is important enough to take a second look:

The number one reason people don’t get what want is – they don’t know what they want. ~ T. Harv Eckert

So what is it you wrote down yesterday – what do you want to accomplish?

Now take it a step further…

What exactly does that look like?

If you wrote down that you want to “lose weight,” what exactly does that look like?

Do you want to lose 10 pounds a month until you are down to a certain weight?

If you want to “start a business,” do you want to just start any business, or do you want to create an online business that brings in $100 grand a year? (More importantly than this even, is what do you want to do in that business? If you want to help people, what do you want to do for them? When you devote yourself to service first, the money becomes secondary and making it becomes much easier.)

It’s harder, (and a lot less fun!), to track your successes when your goal isn’t specific.

So, grab a pen right now and clarify your direction…what is it that you really want to change or create in your life? Get as specific as possible.

If you need help with this, don’t hesitate to leave a comment, or if you’ve joined my Loving Life Community, hop on over there and fire away!

You can get even more crystal clear on your goals using the SMART goal process – check out your goal and make sure it’s:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Action-oriented
  • Realistic
  • Time-oriented

As I discussed yesterday, set your focus on one goal at a time. As you reach some of your specific, clear goals, or continue to get even more clarity and focus, you can refine your goals and add new ones. You’ll be achieving goals with much more ease just by getting clear on exactly what your goal is.

One of the great things that happens as you do this, is that this process frees up your energy and focus to set and achieve even bigger goals as you go!

That’s it for today. Even though you’ve gotten more clear on exactly what it is that you want, don’t hesitate to keep focusing on and gaining even more clarity as you go.

Clarity is key for getting what you want.
