Day 1 of Your Savvy Success Course
I am super excited to have you join me for this email course, “Design Your Savvy Success”! I get so giddy when I begin a new project or challenge for my community. Meeting new women and growing the relationships with the women who have been following me for awhile is so fun for me.
If you’re not already a part of my Facebook group called Your Savvy Success, join me there so we can really connect! I will also be hopping on Facebook Live during the challenge to discuss the lessons.
In case you don’t know much about me, let me give you a brief overview. My name is Emily and I’m a wife and mother of 2 sons ages 10 and 7. I own and operate two businesses; a house cleaning business which I started in college and my coaching business called EMproved Life, where I help women achieve goals that will lead them to their version of success.
When I’m not working (can I even call it work?!) I am spending time with my family (usually at the boys’ sporting events) or working out, running or reading. (I’m trying to live to be at least 100 years old so I have time to read all of the books I have on my list!)
This email course is not your ordinary free course. This course will truly be the first step in designing the life you’ve only dreamed of. We naturally put limits on our dreams and desires (probably from preconceived notions from childhood or societal views) but I’m going to show you that with the proper steps and mindset shifts you can absolutely create the life you’ve dreamed of.
During this 5 day email challenge we will reflect on your current life; the good, the bad and the ugly. You will spend time thinking about what you like about your life and what you would like to change.
You will also get crystal clear on what you want your dream life to look like and then form a plan to get you there.
Throughout my process of designing my life exactly how I wanted it, I had to overcome many obstacles along the way. It was scary, uncomfortable and amazing all at the same time. I learned things about myself that I never would have learned if I had stayed in my comfort zone. I also experienced many wonderful things that I would’ve missed out on had I just settled for my “good” life.
Now that I’ve made it through to the other side where I created my version of a successful life, I have an overwhelming passion to help other women bridge the gap between the life they’re leading and the life they are striving to build.Life is too short to settle and we are each capable of making our life how we desire it. Let's not just survive, let's thrive!!!
Today’s assignment is to ponder the following questions and write down your answers on paper. (writing them on paper is huge!)
- What are the lies you tell yourself on a daily basis? This can include things such as "I can't create a life where I have time and financial freedom." "I am not smart enough to earn six-figures." "I am not capable of losing weight and keeping it off." "I am not good at technology."
Write those lies on a sheet of paper but leave about 3-4 empty lines in between each. I recommend taking about 15-20 minutes on this activity and really empty out all of the lies from your brain.
Now in the spaces between all of the lies, go ahead and write down a sentence stating the truth to combat that lie. Use a different color pen for this step so it really stands out.
You're doing great! Let's move on to the second question.
- What are your big ideas/dreams for your future life where there are no self-limiting beliefs?
This is an exercise for you to journal about what you want your dream life to be like. I always ask my clients to start a Dream Life Journal where they write a story about a character living their idea of the perfect life. Describe her life in extreme detail. How does she spend her days? Who does she spend her time with? What does she look like? How does she feel? Where does she live? What hobbies does she enjoy? How much money does she earn? What is her job/career?
- What are the 3 most common feelings you have on a daily basis?
I want you to consider a typical day within the past week or two and write down what 3 feelings you experience the majority of time? If you notice you do not enjoy those common feelings, then it is a good sign that you need to make some changes in your life so you can feel better. Can you begin thinking about what you can do to make those changes?
Feel free to hit reply to this email so I can get to know you!
Look out for tomorrow’s email where we will get to work on bridging the gap between your current life and the life that is full of all the success you desire!
