My #1 priority is my family – being both mentally and physically present with them. Therefore, I make a point to limit the number of events I schedule that require me to travel. That’s why I booked only a handful of PUSH LIVE events – a seminar where I meet with amazing, driven individuals. We sit down to plot out their goals and create a blueprint for success specific to each person’s life priorities. Because I do a limited number of these events, I decided to share with you tidbits of information that PUSH LIVE participants in Dallas, TX found helpful. The main takeaway: sometimes you gotta slow down to speed up.
Readjusting the Plan
When setting goals, the things people struggle with most are identifying their priorities and choosing goals that not only align with their priorities, but also create balance in life.
After slowing down and taking a closer look at their lives, many people at PUSH LIVE were surprised to find that their goals and priorities shifted. Many participants readjusted their goals. And after giving this some thought, you might, too!
Evaluating the Important Areas of Life
Take a look at these 10 areas of life, and think for a moment how satisfied YOU are with each area.
- Personal Growth
- Friends & Family Relationships
- Romantic Relationship(s)
- Emotional Health
Think of each area individually and ask yourself how satisfied you are with that area. Where do you need to put more focus? Where might you spend too much time?
Oftentimes, evaluating your satisfaction with these 10 different areas of life help make your priorities more clear.
Once you’re able to identify your top priority, your list of 10 goals for the year will come to you more quickly. Bring more balance and satisfaction to your life by making sure your list of 10 goals covers each of the 10 important areas of life.
Slow Down to Speed Up
One of the best parts of PUSH LIVE was that everyone was forced to slow down and take a closer look at their lives by evaluating the areas listed above.
Sometimes, it can be difficult and even uncomfortable to evaluate your life and make changes. However, taking the time to figure out what you really want, and making a plan to get there, saves you loads of time and frustration later on.
I love that PUSH LIVE really forced everyone to plot these things out. They bounced ideas off of one another, and ultimately, created a blueprint for success.
We have to slow down to speed up. Do the dirty work and put a plan in place. Then you’ll be well on your way to where you want, and need to go!

I agree 100% although, it was different when I was a child because I had no desire to be around my family after the tragedies and heart ache when a few people in our lives made too many mistakes. Although, these days we are willing to make an effort to try and make things work again with our little family that is by blood. We grew apart and we know now that we do need lots and lots of space. Thought I should share that, I spent more time worrying about the next person and their problems which is what I am working on to try not to do. My priorites are Me first, I have to tend to my needs to survive,(notice i did not say want), with that being said I am proud to say I am making progress with my important issues that need to be taking care of first, SURVIVAL of LIFE
