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.
