A key part of Declare It Day is embracing and honoring the journey just as much as the goal. So many of us are paralyzed by the fear of failing that we never even begin the journey. We sit on the sidelines and cheer for others while neglecting our own self-worth and dreams. This year we hope to encourage more women than ever to believe in themselves and our goal is to inspire each and every one of you to commit to and crush your goals.
In doing so, we recognize just how important it is for all of us to come together and help each other along that journey before, during and after. That’s why this year we’re hosting two #DeclareItDay Twitter chats so that we can all discuss goal setting, obstacles and how to overcome them and staying motivated and inspired in our journey to reach our goals. We hope you will join us for our first chat:
#DeclareItDay Twitter Chat: Tuesday 1/20, 8:00-9:00pm ET
Topic: Exploring common traps and barriers to pursuing goals & how to overcome them!
We’re also excited to have some other kick butt women entrepreneurs, runners and healthy lifestyle enthusiasts share their advice with us by joining us as special guests on the chat. And as if it couldn’t get any better ALL of our guests are so cool they’re throwing in some awesome giveaways. That means a few of you lucky participants will be chosen at random to win some prizes (can you say cha-ching?!). Prizes include:
- Fellow Flowers statement tee, headband and flower
