Set and accomplish your #1 goal in 100 days

Can you believe the new year is here already?

Time flies when you’re having fun!

One of my favorite things to do in January is take inventory of where I’m at in my life, both professionally and personally (family, health, etc.), and reflection is a great way to get started with this.

First, I take a look back at what I’ve done over the past year that DID work, and then I also recognize those things that DIDN’T work.

Next, I turn to goal-setting to get pumped up (and prepped) for what I want to accomplish in the new year based on what I’ve learned through my reflection time.

But you know just as well as I do that sometimes we set goals but then fail to actually accomplish those goals.

We get busy, we end up frustrated by a lack of progress, or perhaps, we simply don’t have any accountability in place to make sure we’re actually doing the things that will help us get one step closer to accomplishing our goals.

There must be a better way…

Luckily, there is.

It’s calledThe Freedom Journal” and it’s a premium, faux leather-bound journal that will help you set and accomplish YOUR #1 goal in 100 days.

Check out The Freedom Journal here.

The creator of The Freedom Journal is none other than John Lee Dumas, whose business went from $0 to $3.5 million / year in under two years.

He admits his wild growth is the direct result of careful goal setting… and diligent adherence to moving one step closer to the goals he sets each and every day.

How?

  1. By creating goals the RIGHT way (using the S.M.A.R.T. Goals system);
  2. By being held accountable DAILY through affirmations, quotes, resources, documenting progress, and more;
  3. By breaking BIG goals up into smaller, bite-sized chunks (sprints);
  4. By conducting quarterly reviews (every 25 days – take a look-back and reflect); and
  5. By maintaining a GOAL-oriented mindset.

And now, John has finally packaged his system into a premium, faux leather-bound journal you can carry with you wherever you go.

And yes, this thing is beautiful:

“If you asked me for my New Year Resolution, it would be to find out who I am” ~ Cyril Cusack

I love starting emails, blogs, chapters with a quote. If you are like me, you tried to Google quotes for the New Year, and you found that most of them talk about one thing—goals. It may be expressed as “dreams”, “vision”, “resolution” but all in all it’s about goals. I admit that I frequently fell into the category of people who are excited and optimistic to start a “new” life in the next year, then fall off the wagon, then patiently wait for the next year to start over!…. Unless….

Here is what I have discovered that helps you set those goals and complete them!

1.    It’s not about completion of a goal. It’s about BECOMING A PERSON WHO SEES HIS GOALS THROUGH TO THE END!

2. It’s about being INSPIRED!

3. It’s about WHY that will benefit the greater good! You must keep reminding yourself of WHY you decided to pursue this project in the first place!

4. It’s about stretching, growing and learning!

5. It’s about discovering Who I can be, What am I capable of!

Here are simple, fun rituals I do every year on the New Years Eve:

1.    Take a few minutes to write out a gratitude for the amazing things that took place last year, and for the lessons learned.

2.    On another piece of paper, write out the intentions for the next year. At the top of the sheet write the following: “This or something better for the highest good of all concerned.

Then proceed with:

3.    “If I had the most amazing year what would it look like? I intend…”

4.    Read what you wrote. Allow your subconscious mind absorb it. Burn both papers at midnight and let the Universe receive your gratitude and wishes.

5.    Introduce your family and friends to this ritual and do it all together for a fun and meaningful way to celebrate.

If you have your own ritual you are following, I’d love to hear it!

For a more in-depth work, download the chapter of my book here, and use it as a template to write a vision for a year ahead. Also, I’ve planned some awesome events coming up, both locally and online to work on Clarity for the year ahead. Stay tuned for the information on it.

I am wishing you the most amazing, successful, prosperous year yet!

Blessings

In Honor of My Mom

Posted by:

IMG_3820April 21, 2011. Noon. I was having lunch in a beautiful cafe by the lake. It was a lovely, sunny day in California. My phone rang. I glanced at the number. New York. I picked up the receiver. The lady on the other end sounded muffled and grave. “Is this Faye Kovler?” she called me by my maiden name.
“Speaking,” my heart slowed, I held my breath.

“Your mother, Gita Kovler, just passed. My deepest condolences.”

That’s it. She said it. I felt numb and dumb. I wanted to immediately call my mother to tell her, to share as I’ve always shared news with her. Suddenly I realized that I won’t be able to do that ever again… I didn’t feel sadness, I felt fear. How can a child live without her mama? What will I do? Who is going to support me and cheer me up? Who will I have to prove to that I am able and capable? Who will I fight with? Who will I laugh with? Who will I cry to?

I didn’t realize until that moment what she had been to me in my life. She was ferocious and controlling, demanding and judgmental… And…. She was a chisel that shaped me into the person I became today. She loved me unconditionally and fought for me. She pushed me to my excellence. I miss her. I miss her so much it’s hard to breathe sometimes. I know she is there for me in spirit. Yet, how wonderful it would have been to share with her, “Mom, I published a book!”, “Mom, it became a bestseller!”, “Mom, I am a speaker now!”, “Mom….. I love you….”

I was sitting in the front row at the Brendon Burchard’s Experts Academy, and his mother appeared on stage as he introduced her to attendees in deepest gratitude… Tears were flowing down my cheeks, and I felt envious…. I know, I shouldn’t have but I did. I wanted my mama to see me. I wanted her to be proud of me.

Moms are changing the world through us, children. I’ve dedicated my book to my parents. Both deceased. It’s strange to be an adult and yet feel sad for being an orphan. I thought only children can be orphans. It’s not true.

So, today, I choose to celebrate my mama, Mamochka, with you. My ebook, Choreography of Awakening will be on special sale beginning April 22nd through April 26th. And if you want to know more about my parents go straight to Chapter 8.
But if I could ask for something…. I’d ask you to buy my book and give it to your mom. I’d ask you to fulfill that yearning of mine for me. And for YOU.
I’m sending my love to you and to your mom…..
Thank you for reading, and thank you for being part of my life…

What was it like growing up in the Soviet Union?

Posted by:

IMG_4207Growing up in the Soviet Union was an interesting experience. Sometimes people are curious about it, especially when they hear my accent. After the usual, “Where are you from?” Comes the next question, “What was it like?”
It’s not easy to summarize 18 years of my life (ok, let’s say 12 conscious years) into a couple of minutes of the “window of opportunity” I have with their attention. (let’s face it, with all the technology, and an insane amount of information we are bombarded with constantly, people today have ADD, and are too interested in themselves to stay and listen to someone’s else’s old boring story, even if they’ve asked for it) I have to distill my story into something relevant and meaningful to them to keep their attention. Are you still here with me, or I’ve already lost you? 😉

Anyway, back to the story! Nothing mattered more in the ol’ lil USSR than the relationship and connection. Who you knew mattered more, than how much you’ve made. Although, it did matter how much you were willing to pay to the special person who had a connection to another special person, who had an access to the special product (like cheese, or meat, or toilet paper) you wanted to buy. Of course, not everyone was willing to participate in the behind-the-curtain economy, but then those who didn’t–wiped their butts with cut newspapers and ate bread, potatoes and macaroni-without-sauce most of the times. My mother, though, was determined to fare better than the rest, and we frequently had beef and chicken on our table, despite it’s obvious absence on the shelves of the supermarkets.
Unfortunately, I was too young to learn how exactly that system worked, and how my mother mastered the art of obtaining that, that wasn’t available to most. My mother was an expert!…..

Sometimes I think what would my mother do if she was still here in this dimension and needed to get more reviews for her book on the Amazon. How would she ask for it, or bribe? What would she offer in exchange, and how many reviews or FB likes would she collect as a result? It’s too bad I can no longer ask her, but the only thing I can do right now is to ask YOU “Would you be willing to go here and write a review for my book?” Of course I meant those of you who have read it! 🙂 Would you? Those of you who does write a review for me, I’d like to send you a small token of appreciation: a special report: Seven Tips To Stay Inspired Every Day of Your Life.
Thank you soooo much!!!! In gratitude with love! ❤
To get the Special Report, shoot me an email with a copy of your review, and I will send you your report back.

When Magic Happens

IMG_4082

It was a beautiful Tuesday morning when I opened my eyes to welcome a new, early April, day. Nothing was indicating that it will become a day of huge transformation. I had no plan. I just had a spontaneous thought, that it’s time I became a speaker. I knew for a while that I was being directed towards this path, but avoided making any steps in the direction of speaking. I played a safe-zone game — “I don’t know where to start,” “I don’t know how to do it…,” “I don’t have time…'” etc. I am sure, you could add a few more lines to this list.

That morning I was almost jolted by the voice, “Toastmasters!”

“Okaaaay…” I thought, and dragged my half-awake body to the computer to check on the local Toastmasters clubs. To tell you the truth, I’ve done that before several times. I even went to the meetings; twice, at two different clubs. My rate of going was once per year, hardly a serious attempt to become a speaker. This time something was different. I felt ready and committed! I now had a clear vision: “I am a speaker! I am a world class speaker!”

Google search showed a few results for my zip code, but only one on Tuesday afternoon. It was near my house, and I had just enough time to get ready and go check it out!

Now, a little disclosure and a side-note. Some of you know that I used to coach figure skating. Many of us, in skating and sports, are a little superstitious. I am not superstitious, but if there are signs, I follow 😉

Let me tell you about my little weakness: Tesla. A year ago in a “create-your-perfect-vision” game I saw it! — I am speaking around the world and driving Tesla. You may wonder why I am talking about Tesla. Tesla is my omen. If I see Tesla when I go somewhere, I believe something important will happen. That Tuesday morning I was escorted by Tesla behind me and lead by the one in front of me. That day I had a “convoy” of Teslas taking me to the Toastmasters Club 219. Coincidence? Sure! However, I have never before been escorted like this! I took it as a request from the Universe: “Join NOW! It’s time!”

It’s been six months since that Tuesday April morning, and I am near a completion of my Competent Speaker certificate. I’ve been practicing relentlessly every single day! I’ve created many speaking opportunities for myself, took classes and attended workshops, and have been invited to speak at a few events. It was (is) most humbling to be recognized and supported by my fellow club members. Perhaps, people feel and connect to the passion I hold in my heart. I have a purpose! My life has a meaning! I LOVE what I do! I am contributing to the World as well as I can. Today, Toastmaster, an official magazine for Toastmasters International published a Member Moment about me and a couple of pearls of wisdom I could share with the world.  Almost a whole page!  Of course, I knew it was coming, just like I knew that one day my book, freshly printed, will arrive by my door. However, I must attest, anticipation and real experience are not the same thing! It was breathtaking!

I had no idea that there are 313,000 Toastmaster members in 126 countries around the globe, and I was chosen for a spotlight! Wow! Surprised? Not completely!

I coach my clients the power of living as a world-class citizen. That Tuesday morning I have decided that I am a world-class speaker. Being a world-class speaker comes with certain practices and responsibilities. Being a “world-class” isn’t about fame, success and money. It’s about discipline, commitment and inspiration. It’s about responsibility. Not one soul, except for you, knows that you are a “world-class.” However, I teach my clients, and I firmly believe this! one day you are bound to be recognized by the world as a world-class, if you consistently live as one. It cannot be any other way! I am very happy that this article has been published, and more people will become aware of the message I intend to share with the world. I am happy that I can tell my students and clients, “Look! Don’t worry about making it, or not making it! Focus on living as a world-class self one day at a time, fully-enjoying it!  The day will come when the World will recognize you!” And just like that, Toastmasters International publishes this article as an affirmation to my beliefs, teachings, and a way of life….

Last Call…

Posted by:

 

IMG_3915Getting ready to present tonight at the Evening of Inspiration, Gong Healing and Book Signings at the Awakenings Center for Spiritual Living. Just writing these words puts me in the state! Almost four years ago on my birthday I firewalked to the thunderous voice of Tony Robbins. When Tony spoke, my heart was pumping faster, and I could feel a surge of energy. When I came home from the event, I was almost dancing. I think I’ve announced to some family members that I am going to be a speaker. I was 41 and super accomplished figure skating coach. People looked at me as if I was out of my mind. They told me so, too! Some did, who had guts to say it, instead of just nodding politely….They also told me that it was impossible….
“Well,” I thought, “People told me that it was impossible to make it to the Nationals, let alone win it, and don’t even dare to dream to become an Olympic coach!” That’s totally “impossible”……It was….. for them…I was able to breakthrough all their “impossible barriers…” Becoming a bestselling author and world class speaker couldn’t be more difficult than that! So, why not give it a try? Come to support me, and give me a feedback…. What do you think? Do you think I could do it one day? What could you do one day? What’s your dream?….

Read Only If You Are Superachiever

Posted by:

I am Talented. I have a vision. I know what I want. I am willing. But I can’t see myself from behind. I need a feedback, an accountability and a mentorship. Sometimes I need a kick in the butt. Most important I need someone to believe in me, and to inspire me. Sometimes I think I’m amazing, but it gets me nowhere. Then this coach comes to me and shows me all the places where I could have improved. This could save me years of frustration. Sometimes I feel like I’m going nowhere, I feel like a failure, I feel like I can’t do it. The coach stands by me, holds my vision, helps me to heal and breakthrough the blocks and believes in me completely! This coach is expensive, but what I get from this relationship is priceless. I get to be my best self! I know that I have a team, and my progress matters to this person! This person is proud of me! I am proud of me!… I love both positions; the one of the student and the one of the coach. I understand both equally well. It’s impossible to succeed unless you’ve been in both positions with the same rigor and drive, passion and devotion!

For 22 years I coached competitive figure skating. I yelled, pushed, pulled, begged, dragged, inspired, believed, sweet-talked, persuaded, hugged, told stories, commanded, shaped, listened to, healed and lead my students into the battles with their competitors, into the battles with themselves, into the battles for their self-worth, their place in the world, their knowing who they are, their confidence and hope, their passion and conviction. And then I repeated it all over for myself. This really have been my entire life, my purpose and my mission. That’s what I live for every day. This is not an average person’s lifestyle. But I’m not an average, I wake up early and go to sleep late. I practice my craft. I don’t watch TV. I meditate and journal. I believe that if I show up for the world, the world will show up for me. And even if it doesn’t, I show up for me; to be the best that I can be, and that is already enough. If you are like me, and this is the model of life you want to follow, I accept a very limited number of students that I will personally train to become a world-class YOU! If this message touches your heart, touches your soul, message me and we’ll talk about how you could become my student, become your best Self, become world-class MASTER!

With all my love!!!
Yours….
Coach Faye
