If you’ve gotten off to a slow start, remember that you have 10 ½ months left to right the ship. Don’t fret. And if you still don’t know what to do, read last week’s How to Rebound from a Setback article.

This Week in PCM : How to Rebound from a Setback

 

Okay so you’ve had a setback or you’ll fallen off the wagon. It happens; but, of course, you ask ‘Well, now what?’ Great question. I have the answer because I’ve been there myself. Here are my 5 tips for snapping back from (temporary) defeat.

Admit the truth.

Don’t lie because it makes it worse. Admitting that you’ve messed up is liberating. You are not holding onto the what ifs. Honesty is very important here because once you’ve admitted that you are not where you want to be, you can restart and refocus on getting back up.

Assess where you are and how much farther you have to go.

You have to honestly assess where you’re at and decide if you need a new timeline. You may need a new plan and/or a workaround in order to get back on track. Revising your schedule when necessary means that you remove the pressure of the original timeline. In order to successfully restart, your timeline must be realistic; and, your setback has happened, therefore, your timeline must account for this.

Envision you finishing the goal.

Sometimes we can be so hard on ourselves especially after a setback. Look, we are human, we err. We run amuck and astray. Life happens. We happen. This time when you pick yourself up, start envisioning finishing your goal. I recommend keeping a daily journal to chronicle your progress and thoughts. Write down how you will look and feel completing the goal. Saying that you will be happy is extremely general. Go beyond that and write down every miniscule detail because then you will know what it looks (and feels) like finishing.

Get an accountability partner.

Accountability partners work because when you are down or frustrated, that person will pick you up. You need to have this person or a group of people hold you accountable until you meet your goal. I use meetups to hold me accountable for learning new things and for continuous improvement. As a certified project manager, you need professional development units in order to maintain your certification. That means continuous learning. Life is full of peaks and valleys. Your accountability partners will pull you out of the valleys.

Detach yourself from the outcome.

I know that sounds weird but it is counterintuitive. Oftentimes how we see the outcome isn’t always how it happens. Our lives aren’t always linear. I have noticed that many times when you finish, you can way more than you’ve expected. Say that your goal is to get a promotion. You receive the promotion but you’ve also acquired new skills that you can transfer to other areas where you can seek additional opportunities.

These five tips will guide you from setback to success. Just remember, whether you are in the peak or the valley, dust yourself off and restart!

PositivityChange Post : Issue 23 : Learning, Growing and Earning

Happy Monday everyone! The PositivityChange.com newsletter is back with an all-new name (PositivityChange.com Post) and another lesson on manifesting positive change in your personal and professional lives. This is a very different newsletter because I have learned something over the past week because a lot of things have happened that I want to share with you! As this Post’s title says, it is all about learning, growing and earning.

 

Learning

I have also done a PositivityChange Facebook Live about what I have learned from my first 71 Blogtalkradio episodes (Combining my 23 Project Management Minute podcasts and I have done 94 episodes’ worth of content). It is amazing how many things podcasting have taught me about content creation and time management.

Growing

When you learn, you grow and on last Thursday’s Positive Change Radio, I discussed how you can stay positive during growing pains. Remember, growing pains represent your new normal. You are outgrowing your current life and need to acquire some new skills in order to be your best. Sometimes growing pains can be a sad process because it means shredding the familiar people and comfort zone you’ve come accustomed to; but, when you grow, you cannot EVER return to your past life.

Earning

Last week I had found an error that has (positively) impacted my ability to earn. I switched online store platforms 3 months ago and wondered about below average sales. I didn’t know what was happening until I debuted my store blog. When I tried republishing it onto Medium, I received an error. What I later learned was that there was a code blocking customers from buying my items. I fixed not only the blog’s code but all of my URL shorteners resulting in a new sale that Thursday night!

Now that everything is right, I have a very announcement to make: my entire https://carlarjenkins.selz.com  store is 10% off using the LOVE10 code! From now until February 28th, you will receive 10% off all purchases. This means that you can buy my Amazon bestselling Expand Your Personal Brand book, workbook, and the bundle.

Newsletter : Issue 22 : Spreading Positive Change Everywhere!

 

Hey everyone! This is Carla and I hope that you are enjoying February as much as I am! I know that Valentine’s Day is next Tuesday but I refuse to relegate love next week. I want to spread love and positive change everywhere! So right now I have decided to dedicate two weeks (thus far) towards spreading love. In this issue I will give you resources necessary to help you manifest positive change in both your personal and professional lives. Remember, achieving positive change is always an inside job!

It is very hard to create positive change. There I have said it! Positive change is harder than negative change because it requires more work. It is easier getting downsized than promoted. It is easier getting in a funk than coming out of one. However, just because positive change requires more does not mean that it is impossible.

Personal positive change

I have come across this resource from Tiny Buddha about positive change and energy. If you have read the blog, you would have seen some mindfulness articles. I am a big believer in mindfulness and shifting your energy. These activities take diligence and practice; however, they can be done. The article states that music is the easiest (but not the only way) to shift your energy. Myself, I love writing in my journal. It is organic and as soon as I write down my thoughts, I feel the energy leave my body and onto the pen and paper. Writing truly helps me when I am having a bad day and need to shift my energy quickly. Here is the Tiny Buddha article for other ways to positively shift your energy!

Professional positive change

We do not live in a bubble. Even if you are teleworking, you are still a part of a team. You will have some type of human interaction throughout the workweek. Therefore, it is essential that you guard your energy from certain coworkers or even managers. They could be energy vampires. Moreover, if you are at a company or in an industry where you are on the bad side of the business cycle, your environment will be filled with doubt. Here is a LinkedIn article giving you realistic steps towards dealing with change in the workplace.

Remember, every week I bring you the real about manifesting positive change. I can tell you from personal experience that it is not very. At times, it takes courage and a backup plan to realize positive change. I have been in toxic work environments. I have faced personal uncertainty; and, have come out of both of these situations better off.

Until next week, keep manifesting positive change in your personal and professional lives!

Issue 20 : What Are You Putting Up With?

I have been participating in a business mastermind as of lately. The mastermind requires a book. I start reading the first chapter and immediately get hit with a brick from its title: ‘what are you putting up with?’ This title stops me cold because I completely understand it. I have experienced a lot of growing pains due to my refusing to put up with things. That title has hit me so hard that I have gone to the Facebook group to do a video.

PositivityChange.com is a place where we help you manifest positive change in your personal and professional lives. I am asking you what are you putting up with now? Watch the video below.
