This is the time of year where the gyms are packed with people, MLM marketers are crushing it with their health food weight loss products in a whirlwind of new year’s resolutions that are doomed for failure. I suggest that this new year those that want to make this year different filled with more success, better relationships, and all around just more fun — to look backwards not forwards to start making a plan for better outcomes this year. The old saying that history has a nasty tendency of repeating itself is simple a function of not learning from our mistakes and analyzing our behaviors to determine why we ended up where we are today. This is just as true in business as it is in the rest of our lives – so why not look back on 2015 and see what went well and celebrate those successes, then more importantly look at the decisions that we made (that’s all life really is-a constant set of decisions) that did NOT get us closer to our goals. These are the areas where we need to start doing something drastically different or we will be chained to the same lack-luster results of the past. So I challenge everyone who is looking for some real change this year to throw our those resolutions, take a critical look at how things went last year and decide where you want to go and make some real paradigm shifts to make 2016 your best year ever! I have read over and over again from some of the most successful top performers that you first need to have a truly clear vision of what you want to achieve and the results you want to get in business and life – do you really know what you want? Can you picture what life will be like when you get there? Wanting to “make more money” or “lose weight” are not destinations or objectives -they are just wants with no plan to get there which in my books=DREAMS! Having a 20,000 square foot house locaed X designed and built by X with a view of the X ocean with X bedrooms withe the custom woodwork designed by X master craftsman and it smells like X in the flower garden at X hour in the morning is a little be more descriptive save for the variables of X! These of course would greatly vary based on what you individually want – but I think you get the difference between a weak “goal” and a true result/objective that one may want to accomplish in business or life. I say sit down with your ipad,notepad, tablet or whatever you use to write down what really matters to you and get to it deciding on some real objective to reach for 2016 and then break these down into small enough chunks to start crossing those things off your list working toward that objective that will help your confidence and build momentum as you get closer and closer to those objectives that you really want in life. To become truly successful, financially free, and to start playing the game of life at a high-level has nothing to do with the freaking power ball (rolls eyes) and really has to do with picking a list of things you really want in life and then running after them with a burning desire on your heart like nothing could stop you if it tried!
To your Success,
