90 Day Plan: 7 Steps to Success: Q4 2020
Likely you have heard of a 90 Day Plan. You may do one regularly, and/or use a planner. A 90 Day plan is a road map giving you direction for your goals, and the actions to take to get there. Along the way, I often discover increased clarity and community. You will find our 90 Day Plans, and seven steps to success may be different than what you have experienced.
Until 2013, I practiced 90 day plans in college and corporate focusing on my performance and financial life. Like many of us, for years I neglected paying attention to my spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, relational and playful areas of life. My choices cost me in every way. At the same time, the transformation has given me immense gratitude for life.
Once I started focusing on my spiritual and physical areas of life in 2013, everything changed. As I lost over 55 pounds and kept it off, I began to see how changing and replacing 1-3 habits in an area leads to sustainable results over time.

My transformation story of a lifetime has led me to creating a life and business I love, and helping others. In 2016, I created a 90 day plan with seven steps to success helping myself and others. With each and every 90 day plan I complete, my clarity, community, and results increase.
With the 90 Day plan, your results will too.
Side note: I realized I didn't share my Q3 2020 plan. I have completed them faithfully using tools like Meister, Focus Matrix, and my journal for tracking and accountability. I will share insight here as well.
90 Day Plan Highlights
When I started my 90 Day Plan, I focused on spiritual and physical areas of life. Naturally, my emotional, mental and relational areas began to transform. Once I realized, I focused on 1-3 actions in each area. Of course, my beliefs and behaviors started impacting my playful and financial areas of life. I received divine downloads to focus on seven steps to success.
In 2016, I realized I felt the best when I focused on all areas of life. I saw my results increase exponentially. I regularly practice a 3 X 7 approach daily. This means I am tracking 3 actions in each area. Sometimes they overlap of course. I noticed how in different seasons depending on my goal for that quarter and year, I hyper-focused on one area more than any other.
By doing so, the focus spills over in other areas of life. What is really cool is once you focus in one area over time, it gets easy. For example, when I lost >55 lbs. after awhile it became second nature to choose to eat healthy all the time and not drink alcohol.
Now, 6+ years have passed with keeping the weight off and being alcohol free. Of course, what we eat and drink impacts every area of life. You will love experiencing 7 steps to success in our 90 Day Plan.
7 Steps to Success
I'm sharing 7 steps to success for a 90 day plan. You will learn to set yourself up for success in each area of life. Perhaps, you love the 3 X 7 approach. Yet, there is an area of life that requires more attention right now. I have found each year, I tend to focus on an area that needs tender loving care.
In 2013-2014, faith and health were a huge focus. In 2014-2015, wealth and mindset. In 2015 -2016, focus. In 2017-2018, faith and facing fears. In 2018-2019 - freedom and confronting anything I allowed to infringe on freedom. In 2019-2020 - it feels like a combination of all the above along with a focus on finances and joy.
If you haven't done our 14 Day Challenge, it is time to jump start transformation.
Jump start transformation helps you make momentum quickly in an area. It helps to jump start regularly to help you feel and see progress in an area rapidly to increase your confidence. We all need that from time to time.
I know I do especially in areas that take a lot of time and attention to transform. Each and every choice and action matter. You will become a momentum maker.
Let's get into the 90 Day Plan: 7 Steps to Success.
Over the last 7+ years, I've learned to put first things first. If my relationship with our Creator isn't aligned nothing is. My sacred 7 morning routine fills me up daily.
Since 2019, I have consistently woken up to:
I've firmed up my foundation in faith exponentially. I am now reading the Bible the third time through. In Q3 2020, I completed the second time through. This year, I have completed 5+ Bible studies and written three of my own on Amazon and with our guides. I am involved in Transformation, Passion City, and Mount Paran Church as well.
Earlier this year, I made it a goal to attend Lifeway events and Woman Thou Art Loosed. In Q3 2020, I attend Lifeway Women Online Event. In October, I attended Living Proof online with Beth Moore and Fervent with Priscilla Shirer and Anthony Events.
In October, I added going through the Armor of God Bible Study a second time with a good friend of mine, as well as the David Study by Beth Moore as well. In addition, a Prayer Journal by Shannon Fuller where I focus on a weekly scripture and journal.
In addition, to my mornings I add in 2-4 breaks daily for quiet time. I spend a lot of time in nature now e.g. Chastain Park. I leave my phone at home a lot. Now, more than ever we all need to receive and give more love.
For Q4 2020, I am focused on maintaining my mornings, finishing the Armor of God and David Study. and increasing prayer daily.

Mental ties to aligning our thoughts. I pray daily to take my thoughts captive to Christ and regularly reflect on the thoughts I think. I speak I Ams daily over myself. I've increased time outdoors, dancing, as well as with praying and meditation.
In addition, I am finishing the Joy Challenge with Tommy Newberry for the third time with the 5 min daily videos in November.
This week, I completed the one year Unstoppable Course with Bethany Hamilton - yes - Soul Surfer - and her husband Adam and many other guests with topics on Identity, Forgiveness, Health, Goals and more.
Before the end of the year, I will complete a book Mentored by a Millionaire. I started this book during Q3 2020. It is incredible with activities with each chapter. I am currently on Session 14 with two more sessions to go. I typically complete a chapter every week and the related activities. Session 13 focused on aligning our time to our dreams and desires and tracking them.
Last, but not least, I am currently in Tommy Newberry's Achieving Optimal Monthly Program.

Our emotions now more than ever may reflect an area of healing. This year more than ever I have faced where I find my Identity. It has involved healing lies of finding my identity and worth in the external vs. eternal.
My old tendencies were to be a workaholic to the detriment of everything else including myself and my health. So, I make sure I have boundaries in place to guard against consuming myself with purpose to the detriment of my whole being. One of my daily I ams I focus on is "I am enough".
Psalms 139 is one of my favorites, and I added it as Wall Art several months ago. "You are beautiful and fearfully and wonderfully made" is the first thing I see when I open my eyes now each morning.

Choose 1-3 daily practices

How I focus on the physical area of my life has changed this year. I am eating healthy in every way. I drink my Herbalife shakes and tea daily and take my supplements. I make sure I am eating protein, complex carbs and healthy fats daily every 3 hours as usual. I thank God for my health.
My physical routine and workouts have changed. I make sure I am getting up every hour. I stretch in the morning. I do high intensity workouts sometimes I make up indoor and outdoors.
I am running 3+ times a week 2 miles and growing. I am now using the Peloton App since July of this year. In October, I completed over 9,000 minutes across stretching, meditation, yoga, strength, and cardio workouts.
The instructors from Robin Arzon to Rebecca Kennedy to Adrian Williams to Chelsea Jackson Roberts to Anna Greenberg and more are all amazing! I learn so much with workouts and my body. I am proud to say this year I have stretched more than I have my whole life - no joke!
I am walking to the park 2+ times a week. Last month, I completed 30+ miles. LA Fitness reopened months ago, but I have decided to limit exposure and workout from home or the gym downstairs or outdoors.
Last, but not least, this month I added in Steezy - a new dance app. I love to dance and move my body, and wanted more dance classes beyond what Peloton currently offers. I love the warm-ups and tutorials and choices of dance styles!

My communication and relationships have improved. have focused on increasing in relatability, grace, calmness, peace, and forgiveness. I get opportunities to practice daily with both my family and a growing community.
I connect more with my family in Bulgaria and Austria. We chat a minimum of 2-3 times a week now. I make it a point to connect with friends more often and spontaneously whether online or in other ways.
In September, one of my good friends, Silvana gifted me a woman's retreat "Captivating" based on the book Captivating by Stasi Eldridge. I absolutely loved it and I am so grateful for connecting with 10+ women for 4 days near Dahlonega, GA.
I feel myself transforming daily with our growing community online and virtual assistants. In addition, I am meeting more new people online every day. Within the past month, I have noticed an increase in ease with scaling work with partners, community, and VAs.
I believe inspiring influence is important to spread love and light.

I am challenging myself to create more fun and laughter daily at home, outdoors and online. I challenge myself to create joy all the time.
Some of the ways I am doing this is dancing, laughter, and taking a huge leap of faith coming up in December 2020. My lease is expiring in January, and I have decided to increase freedom, joy, and adventure (while still being safe) by going to explore in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Mexico.
I feel like it is worth the risk to travel with a shield and mask on one flight and explore Central America, as well as create co-living communities and our retreats coming 21-22. This year, more than ever, I have felt a desire to be surrounded by like-minded community. It has absolutely shifted online and it's time to shift it live.
I have absolutely appreciated this time of being grounded. At the same time, I am feeling it's time to fly literally. I will be back in Atlanta likely in 2022 again on a stable basis.

Freedom in all forms is my focus for 2019 and beyond. Gal 5.1. This means expression, time, location and financial. For years, I allowed, accepted, and/or invited lies that do not align to faith, abundance, joy, love and freedom. Day by day, I reflect on my mindset, feelings and actions and transform them.
My word for 2020 came to me in October of last year as joy. It has absolutely transformed this year in many ways.
Within Q3 2020 and Q4 2020, I have increasingly simplified and amplified my focus to speaking, teaching and community. This year, I have delegated over 100 tasks via VA services.

After Rise Live, I will take action immediately including updating this post.
