    74: Ready to pursue your next big goal? Here are 15 things you'll need to give up!

    How many of you have a vision board of what your next set of goals looks like? Maybe you have a journal. You know, we talked about journaling a lot here. Maybe you've wrote down your your next steps. If you're like me- I have an idea book. I'm always writing ideas down. So how many of you are ready for that?  My my philosophy is, embrace where you are right now. Be proud of where you are right now. Right? But you need to be looking towards the future. Not too far away, though, right? I want you to look at the year coming up, maybe the next few years coming up. I want you to focus on where you want to take your business and your life. Where do you want to thrive where you have to have some goals...bigger goals, maybe than the ones that you're working on daily. That's our topic today on Episode 74 of the Be Fabbo Podcast. Ready to Pursue Your Next Big Goal? Here Are 15 Things You'll Need To Give Up. And I bet they're not what you think.

    Key Takeaways:
    If you want to accomplish big goals, you'll need to give up a few things


    Worrying about what's outside of your control.   Worrying about what others think. Wasting your time on things you can delegate or outsource.  Getting lost in the scroll.  Binging the latest whatever.  Distraction on your phone.  Interacting with the noise around you.  Looking for the easy route.  Worrying you will fail.  Be around or listen to those not doing what you want to do. Being an exact copy of someone else blueprint.Procrastination.  Let your emotions guide you when logic should lead.  Keep making the same mistakes.  Seeking getting it done faster versus seeking progress.

    Essential Takeaways:
    0:00   Goals, vision boards, whiteboards, boxes of journals, blueprints, all the visions and plans that you have for your business and your life. Oh, trust me, I'm sure they're all amazing. But did you know that there's an easier way to achieve all these thoughts and ideas that you write down? Now, if you've followed the podcast for any length of time, you know, I'm all about mindset that I believe mindset is a strategy. And that with the right mindset, you can achieve anything that you set out to do.
    3:36   I want to share three steps with you to help you become more efficient, be more effective in turning your thoughts into actions, all those things that you have running around all those ideas, positive ones and negative ones, how to turn these thoughts into actions. 
    6:14   Getting these thoughts out of your mind and done on paper, will help you find the right place to start, right and how to turn these thoughts that you have into action, because you can now break them down into smaller, more manageable steps that you can start implementing and seeing some instant gratification.
    7:20   I'm all about you know, future planning. But I also don't want you to think about the things in the past, right? I want you to put your energy, where you can adjust your thoughts and your plans to the present. Because when you do that, you'll actually move closer, faster to achieving your overall bigger goals. 
    9:15   I mean, heck, My motto is to always be more, be more adventurous, you know, do more, you know be be more of whatever you want to work on that living in that zone---have more and be more sometimes falls in that overthinking zone because you're constantly wondering, Will this be enough?
    10:49   Once you complete these first few steps, you might find that you still have trouble turning your thoughts into an action. So let's see if we can determine what's stopping you. No fear, no distraction, it's time to shift that mindset and remove these limiting beliefs. There is no better time than the present to start reframing and rethinking your thoughts.
    13:30   Sometimes we work so hard in our future. And we get we want to get somewhere so fast, and we get there. And we're disappointed. So I want you to hone in on what you're working on right now. Because you might just have a new vision, you might just find out that when you write all these things down, it can be a new, a new vision for a new business. Maybe it's a new product that you want to offer. Maybe it's something else when you look at this list that you can get excited about. And as I mentioned staying present with your thoughts, and meeting them where you are. Remember, you are right where you're supposed to be and you're doing fabbo at that.
    16:20   You'll be amazed how much more you can accomplish if you just do what you say you're going to do. Rather than getting stuck in a thought loop or overwhelming or overthinking or the I can't stay out of that negative space.
