As we approach the end of the New You in 31 Days challenge and the 31 Day Blogging Challenge for me, I am overjoyed with my own personal results and sincerely hope you have enjoyed the content shared here this month. Today, is the perfect day to talk about some specific things to focus on while in the midst of a challenge or challenging situation: Focus for Success!

I realized that during the month I had small and fleeting moments of self-doubt about my challenge because I missed some days of posting. However, I did not allow myself to focus on those particular days but on the 23 days I did share with you beautiful ladies.  I am human and not in complete control of circumstances in my life…just like us all. This challenge has taught me something about focus and how to use it to springboard to a greater success. It brings an old saying to mind: “Shoot for the stars, even if you miss, you will still hit the moon.” I feel like I accomplished just that this month. I would never have been able to do it without focus though.

What To Focus On

1. Your goal: Never lose sight of the end game. It will pull you through when things get difficult.

2. Your strengths: You know yourself better than anyone on the planet. Focusing on what you do best is the perfect way to launch into a new endeavor.

3. Surpassing a previous personal best: I believe we should never compare ourselves to others but only attempt to improve on our personal best in any situation.

4. People and Relationships: I believe focusing on people brings an energetic element to your goals. Think about how your success will affect others positively.

5. Accomplishing the smaller parts of the goal: Though you must know where it is you are going, it is also a good idea to watch where you step. Taking your focus off of the daily tasks could cause you to stumble. When we walk in the physical world, we usually alternate between looking out ahead and at our feet to keep balance and not fall. Success is achieved the same way.

I know there are more things to focus on while striving for new success, but i wanted to keep it concise today. Please add any ideas and practices to the comments that have helped you.


About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

Are You Lost In Woo Woo Land?

This is going to be a really touchy subject here. I don't want to make enemies, but I do want to make a strong point. I know what it means to get lost in "Woo Woo" land. I've been there, and I've been stuck there. The problem is that, while you are there, you don't see how far away from living in the physical world you've come. Let me clarify what I'm talking about.


  1. It is so important for us to not beat ourselves up when we aren’t always perfect!
