Hey Team...

It is Friday... 

Another week almost in the books...

How did it go? We have about 8 weeks left in 2019... so we have to really double down....

You ready to do that with me? I am ready to help you make this next 8 weeks amazing.

Before I head out today to speak with a group of Doctors in Palm Beach today, I wanted to get really serious with you. We have to get ready NOW for 2020.

So, as I Coach you, I want to start with this one question:

What is the 1-MAJOR THING you want to/ need to accomplish for yourself in the next 8-weeks to make 2019 amazing? 

We all have that thing we have been putting off all year... 

That thing we keep saying we will get to...

Well, the time is now.

I need you to push hard for the next 8 weeks so we can build some amazing momentum going into 2020...

The Holidays are going to be there... (they are every year)... they will be in your way...they will innately become excuses... (they do every year)....

My Team does not wait till Jan.1 to begin on their goals... that never works (but you can bet, the new years resolution marketing will be coming at you strong shortly)...

The clock is ticking friends....

The weeks go really fast......

Halloween is gone. Thanksgiving is 3.5 weeks away. 

Let's get real with ourselves and get focused on that 1-THING that can have massive impact and build momentum. Only you know what that is for yourself.

I always break my 1-THING into 2 parts though...

1- My Health Goal.

2- My Professional Goal.

These are my lifelines...

Keeping myself in peak shape-- and being there for my amazing clients and team.

Within those goals, I then outline what my daily process looks like, and what I have to do to keep moving forward in those two categories....

What does your process look like each day? 

Is it in line with your goals? Your mission? Your vision?

If not, that is where it all begins for you.

Defining what you stand for, what you are after, and what you want your legacy to look like- no matter what age you are.

When I work with clients over 50, their biggest fear is no longer being relevant. Believe that? They have already "made it"... but they are afraid of not being needed, wanted, and relevant to their family and industry.....

I tell them, relevance begins with how you see yourself, but it also is based on what you set out to do and achieve each day, week, month, and year....

That is why this process is so important.....

STOP WAITING. Time is not the exclusive answer.

I will leave you with this.....

One of my mentors, Anita (she is 90)... was talking to me the other day... and told me, "DANA, I have no fear of dying. I live every single day. I get ready, go out, and work to make an impact everyday. You see, I never believed in the Y.O.L.O, you only live once saying. We only die once. The saying should be Y.O.D.O. People have it all wrong. You live every day if you decide to. So go out there and make every day a winner."

WOW.

And that is what I want to leave you with today.

Please, value yourself. Take yourself seriously- but not too seriously. Remember, you only get so much time- so make a lasting impact on all you do and the people that cross your path.

Let's GO!

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA
