One of the cruellest things that I get to see as part of my job is the manifestation of the product or products that I dreamed up and created and figured out how to do like. So many of you as a business owner, you get these ideas in your head and it is incredible to get to watch them come to fruition and I started dreaming about one of our most popular products. The start today journal. I served dreaming about this a couple of years ago. I had been doing this daily practice based on several different people. I had heard about several different things in a kind of put them together into one daily practice, which was every single day. I wrote down the dreams I had for my life, but I wrote them as if they had already happened. There's something really powerful about claiming a goal as if it's already done, and I wrote down every day- and it was how I set my intentions and then I would post about it on social and so many people. What are you doing? What is that? Where do I get that journal and I was like eyes: it's not a journal, it's just a notebook, I'm just riding down the same thing every single day, but what I think is interesting, as business owners or creators is often times. In fact, most of the time your audience will tell you what it wants from you and I kept pushing it off because I was like you guys. This is not a big deal, but it was, and people kept asking for, and I finally just thought what if I turn this into a product and I started to dream and plan- and I literally taped pictures to the wall of my office, of what I dreamed that my journal would look like in the intention behind it, and I wanted the covers to be really pretty, and I wanted it to be something that you could do once a quarter and then, as you complete at each journal. You'd have a stack of this evidence of how intentional you were about your life and we figured it out, and I mean you know some times we messed up on the shipping and sometimes we rest up on the interior, but we failed our way to where we are today, which is the start today journal in the hands of hundreds of thousands of people. So incredible such a blessing for me to be able to go on Instagram and see hashtag start today journal and see people all over the world using this practice as a way to
in the direction of their dreams. So if you are not familiar- and you want to check it out, you can go over to the Hollis code, dot com forward, slash shop and find out all about my favorite practice turned my favorite product and, if you're not in the market, to buy remember that episode.

I'm coming to you today from the.
ultra luxurious, super glamorous desk and my ten year olds bedroom.
As per usual. I am fitting in a recording of a podcast on a Saturday, while my baby takes a nap because
I'm working mom and I'm making it work, can I
get a witness, literally right here. Next to my my
Your phone is a pile of clean,
Shoney's of sores that need to be put away in a drawer, but we'll get to that later.
Actually wanted to record a podcast today because
I am hyper aware of something as a business owner as
entrepreneur as a hustler as someone who is working towards all sorts of goals
personally and professionally, and I wanted to make sure that you are thinking about this too. Yes, you friend, was
to this right. Now, here's what you
need to be aware of
we are half way through the year
assuming you are listening to this progress episode when it goes live that'll, be
that means were half
we through the year
and what I'm wondering is heavy
who done a chicken
Have you sat down with the vision that you had for your life for twenty nineteen? Have you look
tat where you are where you ve made progress. Where do where have you excelled and figured
what you are going to do,
the remaining six months of this year too,
ensure that you are showing up as the person you want to be.
I Rachel Hollis and I've built a multi million dollar media company with a high school diploma and the free information I found on the internet in the fifteen years that I've been building and scaling my company, I have become deeply passionate about helping other entrepreneurs to do the same so each week, I'll be sharing tangible and tactical advice and inspiring interviews with the same intention being
are the tools to change your life and your business? This is the rice podcast see. Most of us are going a hundred miles an hour if you're like me, your grown a thousand miles an hour right now, and it's
who were easy to lose track of the goal, because you're so busy living life turnkey per head above water, tight trying to take care of yourself, maybe take care of babies are trying to do the work? Do the scientists will do all of the things is really easy to get distracted and then all of a sudden I know I'm not the only one who this has happened to all of a sudden, its November
and then you tell yourself thing it
do it, but you know what I'm gonna start again on January first
and I M here to tell you that this
the time that the
six months. Hopefully you made incredible traction awesome ride that momentum, let's see where it can go, but even if you did it
as far as you were hoping to your goals. Use
still have had.
a year laughed dune?
waste it because you fallen down. Do not
because you're, not where you thought you'd, be by June
let's have the self awareness to look at what s really going on in our life and fear.
how'd, you get to the next place, so this
episode. Is my mid year check in the
These are the things that I do in June to make
for that. I am on course, to be where I want to be by the end of the year.
and you ve never done this before feel free.
Two still any of these ideas or all of these ideas to get
closer to where you wanna be, though
first thing that I recommend doing that,
from being honest with you, I do this every month, but it's something that I think most
People might not even do once a year, and so I'm going to suggest that you do at this month, especially,
and that is look at the goals
set for yourself.
If you are in my coaching programme, and I hope that you are then you might have been with us when I helped
you two vision cast and lay out exactly where you want to go in your life or x,
actually where you want to go in your business this year so high,
hopefully you ve, got those goals right. Do you have that vision? Do you have that idea of where you wanted to go back when we did this work in January?
if you don't there's still time
there's still time to figure out where it is. You want to go more on that in a minute, but
the most important thing that you can
right now is to check in
number one. We laid out those ideas like how
close have you gotten did
achieve any of them? Are you going to achieve any of them? You know if you're a business owner then
lay out your revenue goals for the year right, and we just did this with our leadership team. We we had our revenue goals for twenty nineteen and we
looked at where we are and yea, where
If schedule miss it again,
We laid out the revenue goal that we had for the year and then we looked
oh, my gosh, how exciting we are
head of where we need to be in June. That's incredible!
As a side note, though, let me
are you the possible ramifications from someone realising there
already further, along than they thought. What can
really easily happen to a business,
to a business owner is that you will take your foot off the gas you'll be like
look at us, we're killing it we're doing a really good job. We can conduct
draft off the wind of the success that we had in the first part of the year. You take your foot off.
gas, because it had this happen. You take your foot
the gas three more months, go by your in a new quarter and all of the sudden now you're behind
How in the world do this?
and we were doing so well- it happened
Have you thought that
earlier success, guaranteed you future success and
that's not the way it works, you
to be intentional about what comes next. So if you are looking at those goals that you laid out at the beginning of the year and you
killing. It keep
doing what you're doing here is the flip side may,
we will look at those goals and-
you're, not where you wanted to be
your six month through the year, your field,
discourage it's not why
you wanted it to be,
In my opinion, there are two
says of action here
one and be achiever in me does not love this, but even I do it one is you ve got
to reassess your goals, dude
if you're, not where you want to be with your dreams
you're not where you want to be with your health. If you
where you want to be with your finances the instead,
that most people will have is to give up on all goals right
I like Asker, it I'm not doing it, so I'm just not gonna try
I didn't lose as much weight as I wanted to. So. What's the point of even trying to get healthy or
My business is not doing what I wanted to so I'm a failure rightly have this,
negative self talk in our head of all the reasons that were not doing a good enough job, and the instinct is just too like litter
like, throw the baby out with the bathwater like go just
like the entire thing on fire, because it's not where I wanted it to be. What
way smarter. What may
way more sense is to reassess what is true
truly possible in the
six months of this year. So let me go
an example when I
start every new year and
I have every single year I
break out my goals for my year in three sections. Ok now-
these might look totally different for you. Maybe you work for someone else. Maybe you are safe home Mamma, you whatever, but this is what is it?
for me as an entrepreneur, the three,
sections that I break out for my year goal wise. These are my personal goals is one
to what am I going to market this year-
what am I going to market this year, meaning what am I going to sell em an entrepreneur, gonna sell some things: are we don't have a business anymore and then three
what am I going to do personally this year. So I figured
at the beginning of every year and looking right now is my I've got my
books, I'm looking at my two thousand eighteen focus
and then, if I, if I flip some
or pages. I can find my two thousand night teen focus and for
first time ever, which, by the way, makes
if you like the most mature version of myself that has ever exist it for the first
ever. I looked at me
personally, I looked at these three things, my twenty nineteen focus and
halfway through the years. I just did this a couple weeks ago. I reassessed. I reassessed because in the past
ass. I am really bad at setting goals that
so lofty even
I am successful at something I don't.
had the goals, because the goals are insane
other threes Armenia ram listening in any other achievers. I do that all the time like I set these
goals that like if they were half of what
GO was the average for
that would be tickled pink, but because I
such an achiever- oh my god, it's gotta be a bug Julian.
Over the first time ever actually went back and reassess what was possible. I think that means that I am
finally becoming a grown up woman, but I I from
but for the most part I had I
achieve things already. How or
I am well on my way to achieving the goal, but some
specifically under the category of creation- I,
in the past if, if you
with me in my career as an author for a long time, then you know I used to write a book a year, if not to some.
Very fast writer and I used to write a book
at least one book a year, if not to books, ear and
when I set out this year in the creation category, I really put
many things on what I want to create, and just so you know for my
for that category. For me, they're they're, big things. It's not like. I want to write a blog posts. It's like I want to write a screenplay and-
I had to reassess this year what is actually possible for me because
schedules to intense.
I want to make sure that I am showing up as an exceptional mamma and exceptional wife and I'm taking care of myself and so
I removed one of my items that I wanted to create, I pulled it off the list like a week
can get to that later, but we want to get to the end of twenty nineteen and be healthy and whole and not super
a stout, and so I went to relieve the pressure
this also is really powerful in the marketing section like if you're an entrepreneur you in a business, if you say,
those goals back in January, if you
If the most your company ever made was you know
five hundred thousand dollars- and you said a goal man this is the year- were getting to a million and your hat.
Way through the year- and it doesn't look like that's likely, but it does
it's possible to get to six hundred
two thousand. First of all that
magnificent. That's it
radical that is an incredible crew increase year over a year,
and so what I would do in that scenarios look rage
probably not gonna get to a million, but it looks
are on track to get six fifty, which is incredible, but why
But if we did a stretch, goal of seven twenty five,
at our company, we always have
and we have the stretch goal
So everybody knows what we have to hit and what would be
incredible if we had it, if that makes sense,
that last section, the personal section and I'll just tell you what it was for twenty nineteen, a healthy family
physical emotional, our die
what we eat too. I put I wanted to be an warrior shape toxic.
about my word for this year being Warrior one to be mentally and physically strong, thither
the thing that I wanted to do for myself this year was learned Spanish and I am I
discovering that learning another language is something I work for the rest of my life, but I have made incredible strides this year to learning Spanish and then the fourth thing I put
was a stronger happier. Sexier marriage
in the personal category. I didn't change anything because
The personal goals are now
the area, I'm ever gonna touch design.
it sounds like. I will never change my personal goals for myself, because those are the ones that matter no
So none of those personal goals said, like
Oh, I need to be a certain size are needed. You know that in no it's about.
feeling great all of those are things that will make me feel great.
being strong having a healthy marriage, making sure my kids are healthy. So the
personal section. I never change but
do adjust creative and what the business
he's gonna do if it feels like we're not,
we're close. So that's one thing:
if you're not meeting your goals, you can reassess your balls and I literally just write it out again. I did too
nineteen focus, but then I dated it at the end of May,
Hey all our next women's conference is only a few weeks away and if you have never attended before this is the events that will change your life rise is a three day: women's personal development conference, where we laugh until we pay our pans and we'd have about our things that we cry and we find community and we create the road map to changing our lives or businesses or whatever it is that you're working on.

If you have been looking for a nudge, if you have been looking for something to kick start change, I promise this is the thing the other
then you can do you can go ham.
and if you know I have means, don't look it up,
and if you do know what it means you're laughing right now. But what are the areas tat? You need to double down triple down
Where are you going to show up you?
six months left. What are you gonna do?
make sure that your showing up as the person you wanna be so you can.
see that number and you have to have an honest conversation with yourself lets you less use revenues. I know a lot of you are small business owners left
Let's use revenue as an example,
You had a revenue number in your head, as you started this year,
and right now, it's June.
You need to have an honest conversation with yourself is
that number actually possible be
real- and this is not a moment for shame, because guess what
If you let that negative self talk take over this moment
going to rob you of any motivation, you had to finish this year, strong
castigating yourself is not going to do anything.
for you, sir, stop wallowing in that crap.
Let's have the self awareness to do the work that needs to be done. This is not a moment for shame or recrimination or yeah. I knew oh, I'm terrible. I knew
Nobody got time for that. Your goal doesn't have time for that, your team. Does it have time for that? Your dreams don't have time for you to wallow. This is,
the time to have an honest conversation with yourself. Not now
at an emotional converse,
honest, conversational sis
can we hit this number and if,
like you know what yeah, if I
go down if I sub screwing around, if I'm more productive. If I get the work done, if I fight for this time for myself, if I were,
make up and I work for
five, just like whatever I could do, it.
Then you better get to work, you better get too.
If you can actually achieve it, then go achieve it. If you can,
that's when you re assess, but
now this is the honest conversation. What can
we really do? We?
the time that we have in our
very real life and then
and paragraph five talk today about this before, but
I love this idea. I think I've set it on a recent episodes,
not sure, so
our friends, Tom and LISA you who are incredible, they ve, though Quest nutrition.
I'm sure you guys know that if you're not familiar with impact, very needy go check it out but
we got one a trip with them. They were talking about this conversation.
But they have in this question that they have in their relationship and in their business. That I love
It was like I wanna,
when someone saying something that they want like I want to die, I really want to grow this part of our business or I really want to write a book or I really want to fill in the blanks. So whatever it is, that you're saying right now, I want to hit this revenue number. I want to train for the
and k whatever it is there,
question is no
I ll be ass. What would this tech.
No be ass. What would it take for us to get to that goal
you wanna hit that revenue number right now today. I want you to make a list of no bs. What will it take
You want a hundred new clients. What would that take see? I'm
huge believer that anything is possible.
I literally believe anything is possible but make
Need to have an honest conversation about what is necessary to make that thing happen. Which brings me to my second point
If you are made here the
thing that you're gonna do is look back on those goals that you set in January and see it,
is a right. Is it not right? Can I do it what's the plan?
second thing that you ve gotta, do.
design the road map
three design. The road map
You don't know what I'm talking about when I say road map- I I am
like I know it's my book, you guys, but seriously get a copy of girl.
Stop apologizing, I'm like right now get the copy. If you can
afford it go get it from your library. There is
excuse for why you cannot open the chapter and read all about the roadmap. It is
If you have to assume that, if your listening to this, it's because you admire me as a speaker or an author or you admire, would have done with my business
I literally told people exactly how I have achieved every goal. I've ever achieved whether it was running a marathon or bill.
Being a business into the billions staff of thirty four people right
the book every single thing of achieved. I have you,
the same exact formula, and it is not something I have ever seen. Anyone else write about. It is made up thing in my head so
if you have not read that chapter where I show you exactly how to create the road map,
ah, don't waste your time, but go get the book seriously. So how
we have all read it. I assume you're you're, my peep Simon, assume that you read it. So, let's just dig in as
if you know what I'm talking about.
you need to redesign the roadmap. Now this
this for those of you who don't feel like you're
where you want to be
if your year, if twenty nineteen first six months of twenty nineteen you are killing, it then keep on tracking
but what happens is that most of us set out on the weight?
a goal and we get lost? We get this.
bracted we lose our momentum, we d
You know we're like. I wish I had some of that energy and drive that I had back in January. You need to redesign the roadmap, you
Don't feel lost because
not sure where you're going.
You feel lost, because
who have gone off to the side of the road and you're, not sure what the steps are to get. You headed back in the right direction,
but we all know what the goal is it something you're
all got place in it.
As other the goal changed.
that you set out on the journey towards the goal and the
distracted by daisies on the side of the road you whenever the smell the daisies and then all look there is acute dog to pet. No and here's the thing and here's this thing in hers and six:
have gone by and now you are way out. My field,
and having no idea how to get back to home
and so redesigning that road map reconverted, like all the steps that are in the book from beginning to end, do the whole thing again, because
now, hopefully you ve got some more
resources. You ve got some more insight
now? Maybe the road map looks differently than it did
first laid out and and
thing off to the side of the road or falling off the plan. That's
Have you learning what didn't work so now, when you design your road map again you'll up that thing, that's a decision
action that doesn't actually help me grow in any way. So I'm in here,
back over here and make sure I'm doing right. You know
the goal is I want to get promoted and
I try to get promoted now that didn't work. So what do I need to do better this time to get me closer to who it, as I say I want to be so. First thing is
copy goals. Again, second thing is
Redesign the road map
How am I going to get from here to there
Do you know what you guys could do in six months.
does you have that voice in your head telling you may as well just give up didn't?
by now may as well just give up just mail at on in
You know what you could accomplish in a month,
here's a question of you
I'm left to go on
vacation and run
before you left to go on vacation. You
so much done you
accomplished so much stuff right.
before you go on vacation
tell me why you're not that productive every day of the week, because you don't have to be
Cause there's no there's no
necessity. That makes
so that you have to
Get it all done,
do. You know what you could accomplish in a month if you try
every work day like the day before vacation.
Don't tell me, but you can achieve incredible things with the six months left in this year,
because you are lying to yourself, because that
Skews is easier than
standing back up off the ground the third.
Thing that I want you to do is audit
if you ve never heard me talk about those go back, I'm so sorry that I didn't look before I saw recording but there's an episode that I did the last week of twenty eighteen white,
talk about auditing. Your calendar is actually not my thing. I read it for the first time
And John Maxwell book- and I have done it ever since- and I am obsessed with that- but
end of every year I audit
my calendar for the entire year
you can go? Listen to that episode!
podcast, to understand how it works
but essentially you're seeing
fewer using your time. Well,.
Am I doing this right am I am I
using my eight hours, my nine hours, my four hours. Whatever time you have to work on the goal, are you using it correctly because
We will so easily get wrapped up in the chaos of life
that we don't even have the opportunity to pursue our goal and we don't realize it
So I would ask you to go back and.
The calendar, so you know whether or not you are being productive and get this question all the time
I am from people were alike
but I am working hard like Rachel, I'm working so hard, but I'm not making any
yeah you're working hard working hard on the wrong things. You not
working on what actually moves the needle in the direction that it should go so go.
at your calendar. It take
you're not doing the whole year. So when I do it at the end of the year and on the entire year it takes you know half a day, so
it's gonna, take you a couple hours to audit the last six months.
to just see.
Am I utilizing my time the way I know it needs to be utilised in iron,
control of my schedule or other people putting things on
schedule that I dont want there.
The only way that you're gonna know what's true is, if you go, dig in and find the answers, the oars
thing that you're gonna do halfway through this year.
is real line with a vision.
Real line with a vision of
Hu, it is, you are
and who it is. You want to become.
if you have not listened to episode, seventy two of the podcast in that episode, I do a fool
meditate like, I read the entire opening of our start today journal, which is how I help people to figure out. The vision
of where they want to go,
and I made that episode so that even
Didn't have the journal. You could figure out exactly where it is that you want to go so
I would suggest you gotta listen to episode. Seventy two literally listen to my voice as a meditation guiding
you threw how you figure out what it is you want to be who it is
You want to be
real line with that vision in your head. Get excited about
vision in your head, because
That vision is what is going
propel you forward on the days that its heart
that vision. Is what keeps us going. That vision is what keeps us honest. That vision is the leverage that we need to keep showing up again and again or keeps
standing up again and again when we fall
who is it like one? Who is that girl? What who is she
becoming. What is she going do? Who is that guy? What's he building? What's this going do for his family? Get fired.
About, where you're going,
and if you don't have that, like close to your heart, if you can't tap in two that vision like habit play like a movie in your mind, if that's not,
like a movie in your mind of like
I am going to become this person. My firm is gonna. Have this like? I can see
as clear as day in my head playing like a movie
if you don't have that ready to go, go! Listen to that episode!
when you're done here, don't do when you're driving do when you can have no paper do and you can close your eyes and really vision
and even those of you who have done it before. If you feel like that,
This kind of slipping away, go, listen to it again, free just go
listen to it
This is what we're working for this,
HU. We are pushing to become the
next thing that I'm gonna ask you to do so.
I was doing this out like I was writing
all these things, and I note book of what I wanted to share with you and what I really hope that you would
take away from this episode today, and then I thought you know what I mean it. You know what I mean
what I need to hear and
That's because I'm going to assume that most of you are gone,
getters like me, you
who are you? Are you have a dream?
the goal. Maybe it's a purse
I'm gone, maybe the big Harry audacious goal whatever ever that looks like bramin assume that most
If you are, are my kind of girl, my
kind of guy?
you're chasing down something.
so I want to make sure halfway through the year.
That you plan for fun plan for been
this entire year. I have been planning for fun,
entire year has been the most intense
insane travel schedule of my life
for the rest of my life, I will never have another year like twenty nineteen. I forbid I forbid it. I will not allow it to happen. This has been bananas, crazy,.
And I knew that I didn't have control over this.
Links has already done. I had been
to speak all over the world. The it's done
and those contracts signed. I can't take it back, so the only thing that I feel
here I can do, was born
some time, little chunks of time before,
out in my calendar, for some fun
because if you are working this hard, it is
very hard to stop
working so hard
Does our resonate with anyone
you are hustling. You are grinding. You are shown up for your kids, your shown up for your wife here, you're taking,
everybody here: you're doing it, you know a thing in view: an entrepreneur, my gosh, the stress of being an entrepreneur nor like Jesus, take the wheel is so much and it is very,
very hard to step out of that, if you are in it
if your stay, oh Mamma, it
very hard to fight for some time for yourself, so
the way that I do it is I plan for fun. I mean I
have my vacate seriously guys I have them
occasions in my calendar through twenty twenty
