Seven of us Root gals recently traveled to Dallas to take on RISE, a personal growth conference hosted by Rachel Hollis. If you don’t know who she is, look her up! She’s an incredible author & motivational speaker, working to inspire other women. Those two days at the conference were full of tears (more than we’d like to admit), dancing, happiness & inspiration. We came back so inspired & want to share what we learned with you! We truly believe women can change the world, so we want to give you all the tools to do so by sharing some of our biggest takeaways at RISE.
Close your eyes & imagine your life in 10 years. Who do you want to be? What do you want to be wearing? Do you have kids? Are you married? Seriously, close your eyes & imagine your dream life in 10 years. What did you see? Write it all down.
Based on what you wrote, come up with 10 goals you want to accomplish in the next 10 years. These goals should be incredibly ambitious. For example, one of Haylee’s goals is to be a New York Times best-selling author (you go girl!). Get as specific as you can. If you set an immeasurable goal, you’ve already set yourself up to fail. And lastly, write your goals as if you’ve already accomplished them. Don’t say “I want to be debt free”. Say “I am debt free”. There’s just something extra powerful about owning your goals.
Be sure to focus on one goal at a time. You won’t be able to give 100% to all 10 goals at the same time, so focus on the goal that’s speaking to you the most.
What we say to ourselves is what our mind believes. The voice inside your head that’s bullying you with negative thoughts is holding you back from your full potential. You need to shut that voice out right away. Drop the negative thoughts & replace them with positive thoughts.
It might sound a little crazy, but take it one step further & give that voice in your head a name. Imagine it’s someone you really, really don’t like. Imagine them staring you in the face & saying these hateful words to you. Wouldn’t you instantly shut them down? Or even worse, what if they were saying these hateful words in front of your kids? You wouldn’t let it happen. So every time you hear this negative voice, shut it down & replace it with a positive thought.
Rachel Hollis has a practice she calls “5 to Thrive”. It consists of five daily practices that will drastically improve your life.
We had such a great weekend at RISE full of growth, & we’re so excited to grow for ourselves, for Root & for you! Keep working toward your goals alongside us & try incorporating these practices into your everyday life. Cheers to working toward our dreams!
