Retreats Are Great, But What About Daily Life?

How do you keep up motivation following an inspirational workshop?

“When I go on a personal growth workshop, I get really inspired and charged up about all the new exercise and diet intentions I set for myself, but then once home and back in my day-to-day routine, my initial motivation wanes and I find I don’t follow through with my great plans.”

Has this happened to you, too?

How does one maintain the same enthusiasm it takes to actually follow through with all your good intentions after attending an inspiring workshop or retreat?

If you are the type of person that has trouble keeping the intentions you set for your self for health and wellness, finding the love and happiness you desire, changing jobs or making the career move you want to make, then most likely you have a strong “inner saboteur” voice that keeps you stuck in old limiting beliefs. That negative inner voice is full of, “yes, BUT’s” that are preventing you from moving forward effectively with your goals.

Having an on-going support team will help you accomplish your goals.

Accountability when trying to reach your goals is essential to keeping up momentum and in keeping on track with timelines. Working with a personal coach or project team to keep you accountable to your timeline and goals is a great way to set up structure for success, however, this can be expensive, too.

When I wanted to take my business to the next level of professionalism at the beginning of 2010, I had a long “To Do” list, including creating two new web sites that were effective and functional in social media, organizing, culling, updating and building one succinct mailing list from thousands of names and business cards I’ve collected from years of networking that were spread out all over my office, creating a new, updated program of services, classes and retreats for personal and professional clientele, attend more networking events and finally get my W.I.S.H. book published after having it sit on the shelf in manuscript form for ten years. I had to accomplish all this with no budget and with also having to continually build up my present clientele in order to pay for all these goals.

For years, I felt so completely overwhelmed by it all that everything simply sat collecting dust and waiting for me to make a move.

The way I successfully wrote my W.I.S.H. book in a matter of about six months, during a time period wherein I was also in a demanding master’s degree program with lots of written homework and self employed as a massage therapist, was because I also had a great support system called my project team.

I created the same thing for myself at the beginning of this year, 2010, with a project team to support my business goals. You can see the results in my great new websites: and and in the professionalism in my monthly Newsletters and Retreat offerings and coming soon, my W.I.S.H. book is finally going to be published and available for sale, hopefully end of this year!

On-going support for your goals in health & wellness, creative expression, loving relationship, career transition, etc.

Each member of our project team had their own project goal, from permanently releasing weight, to learning how to play an instrument and producing a singing CD, to creating a new career path in corporate art installations, anything you could imagine. In my project team, I was the only person with the goal of writing a book, Porchia’s W.I.S.H. – Whole Integrated Self Health, Guide To Healing, Living & Living Consciously. which was my master’s project and is the foundation of my life mission teaching about holistic health and wellness, creating loving relationships through heart and soul-centered communication skills and personal transformation through spiritual practice and awareness.
