Hey there, bold leaders. This week we are doing something a little different with the podcast. We’re saying goodbye to 2019, and saying hello to 2020 by reconnecting with what we actually want. Each day this week, I’m going to walk you through each of the days in our five-day “Journaling for Vision, Clarity and Abundance” program.
This is a powerful time of year to do this because it’s going to push you a little bit. It’s going to help you process, and it’s going to help you calm and get laser-focused on what you want to bring into 2020.
This is an activity we do in our mastermind days. And it’s something I do with my clients when they need to get laser-focused on what they’re creating. It’s powerful.
The leaders who have gone through this training have received amazing results that they would have paid good money for, but we’re giving away for free.
For example, Katie said, “A huge thank you to Tara. This is the first five-day challenge I ever completed, and you’ve changed my mindset on journaling. It’s been invaluable to kickstart me back into connecting with the next chapter of my life. I’m loving how I’ll be showing up in the world.”
Maybe you’re feeling like Patrick was. Maybe you’re feeling like you’re faced with a million different decisions, choices, and possibilities. The decision, fatigue and second-guessing yourself can really keep you frozen. Maybe you feel like you have so many goals with so little time to focus because this is how Patrick felt when he did our five-day training.
He says, “I can’t thank Tara enough for setting me straight on what I should be focused on, and more importantly why I should be focused on it.” Do yourself a solid, and get over to her training and learn how to get focused. Gain perspective on what it is you really want for your personal and business blueprint.
I’ve already moved forward more than I have in a really long time. Patrick makes a really great point. I am not here for the blueprints that everybody else is handing out and having you follow. But this is really a way for you to create your own personal blueprint for where you need to be moving next.
And as so many reluctant journalers have let me know, this has really helped them get the habit started. So grab a cup of coffee, and join me each day this week for “Journaling for Clarity, Vision, and Abundance.”

Hey, hey. Welcome to day three of the Journaling for Vision, Clarity and Abundance training. Today I want to talk to you about your reasons or your why. Why is the focus area you chose yesterday so important to you? And I know it is because I forced you to make a choice. I didn’t let you choose three things. I said you could only choose one thing. So when you narrow your focus in that way, I know how important that focus is going to be. So today we’re talking about your reasons and your why and again, feel free, take out your journal. This is about creating that daily habit of opening your journal for 20 minutes a day.
So it’s not good enough to scratch the surface here. We need to spend some time digging around and knowing why something is important to you. Why is it so important, helps you stay focused when life gets noisy and distracting and in the way or like I like to say when life starts lifeing we need to know why we are doing something. We need to know all the reasons why you’re committed to this particular focus because it will keep you in the commitment when you’re tired or feeling pulled in too many different directions.
My best example of this is around my health and fitness. For those of you who don’t know this, I’m an avid CrossFit athlete. In March of 2017, I was finally well enough after years of battling adrenal fatigue to start working out again. I took my first CrossFit class and quickly declared CrossFit a homecoming for my body, my mind, and my soul. And since then I’ve been committed to being the most fittest version of myself and I’ve wildly transformed my body, my mind, and my strength.
And if you follow me on Instagram stories, you will frequently see me posting about my workouts. People reach out all the time saying what keeps you committed? And how do you keep so consistent? You’re so lucky that this is something you enjoy. But you want to know the truth? Most days I want to stay in bed. I don’t want to wake up at 5:00 AM to get to my usual 6:00 AM class. Lots of days I’m sore or tired or just don’t want to do it. And I can come up with plenty of excuses to skip out on workouts. And what saves me every time is my longterm focus and the reasons for this focus. So why is this area of focus so important to you? How will this focus change everything else in your life?
When I started CrossFit, it changed everything. No corner of my life was left untouched. How I parent, my relationship with my partner, my business goals, it had a huge domino effect in my life. So what will your domino effect look like? What are all the things that change for the best, when you focus on this one area? That is your journaling assignment for today. List your why and your reasons. And you can write this out in story form and just keep writing in paragraphs. You can jot words down, you can have phrases. This doesn’t have to be a whole narrative. You can make this easy. You can let this be easy. And I’m so excited for you because you are through day three. So hit reply and let me know how the training is going so far. Are you flying high or are you feeling stuck? Let me send you some words of encouragement.
