Studies show that 92% of the population do not meet their annual resolutions. What’s the secret to powering through to make your dreams happen?
Savor is committed to empowering women to achieve their dreams. Our program, Savor Success Circles, has been recognized by Fast Company and Forbes ’ Best Websites for Women for focusing on 90-day goals and “achieving benchmarks together.”
Every quarter, we create 90-Day Visions as a community and work together in pods of four to six women for support and accountability.
Why 90 days? Because it’s not too long, it’s not too short and you can pivot quickly.
Kerry Connelly, a Savor Success Circle President, writer, and business owner, has made huge strides during her time as a Savor Circle member and leader.
When we asked her for HER advice for fellow entrepreneurs to succeed in business, she replied: “Declare your battle cry.” Here is her story, and a quick boost of inspiration to help you apply it to your business, too.
WHAT’S YOUR BATTLE CRY?
As a mom, a wife and a businesswoman, I train in Mixed Martial Arts to stay on top of my game. So many parallels can be drawn between the mat and achieving goals in work and in life. In Savor, we ask you, “How do you want to feel for the next 90 days?” I call that my Battle Cry.
I was training one evening and things were getting intense. My trainer came right out of the gate into a very tough workout. As I was kicking the bag, I got into The Yelling Place fast — it’s that place where the only way you’re going to be able to throw one more kick is to yell through it. And I was yelling. “Yes!” he yelled back, “Scream your Battle Cry, Kerry. It’s what’s going to get you home tonight!”
Sometimes we need to have that battle cry to make that one last kick. What’s the thing that’s going to keep you going, that’s going to keep you connected with your community, that’s going to get you through the tough spots when they come? Tough times will come—prepare yourself now. My battle cry is “freedom.” It’s the reason I love being an entrepreneur, and it’s why I choose this life every day.
