Your 10-year old self…

This is from a parody account, one of several on Twitter… But its wisdom is worth sharing here with you.

Think about yourself when you were ten, would you be disappointed in the person you are now?

Twitter Wisdom

Now take that to the next level and ask yourself who you want to become in the NEXT 10 years or at your next milestone decade (30, 40, 50, 60….).

“If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll get there”
– Dr Marc Dussault

One of the easiest ways to start the process is to do New Year’s Resolutions. I have a program specifically designed to take you through the process AND you can start it ANYTIME.

There is nothing worse than not knowing where you’re going and then being disappointed when you get there!

Are you achieving your New Year’s Resolutions?

The photo below, from Twitter reminded me that we’re just a few weeks into the new year and most people have already forgotten their New Year’s Resolutions

There are only a FEW people who wake up every morning with this level of enthusiasm and optimism.

Beliefs Versus Behaviours

Vegan Eating Hot DogIt”s that time of year, when the calendar ticks down to the end and the new year peeks its nose around the corner, enticing you to “change and improve” in the “new year”… Many make New Year’s Resolutions… But only a few write them down, remind themselves of their commitment on an on-going basis and actually follow through.

Why is that?

I have blogged about this in hundreds of blog posts, dealing with procrastination, inertia, momentum, motivation, etc. When all is said and done – you need a compelling reason, a driving force to make you want to change. Without THAT, it’s all INTENT and no follow-through.Bill Murray Tweet

Why will 2013 be any different to 2012 or 2011?

New Year's Resolutions, Goal Setting, Goals, Dreams, ResolutionsFirst of all, this is not a rant, but an exposé on how most people live their lives insanely…

Albert Einstein said it best when he uttered these pivotal words “Insanity is doing the SAME things over and over again, expecting a DIFFERENT result.”

Now before you get your back up and claim you’re happy and content – you’re missing the point.

I am not advocating that you are not happy or content with your life. What I am suggesting is that maybe, just maybe there is MORE for you out there…

More passion and energy for what fuels your dreams and desires.

More excitement, adventure and variety for the things you love doing.

More challenge, growth and contribution to the causes you feel most attached to.

More love, engagement and interaction with those most precious to you.

More vitality, health and fitness to live life full-on.

More

More of what you already have.

More of what you don’t have, but would like to have.

More

Not because you’re depressed or demoralised, but because you want to grow and become…

More

More confident.

More capable.

More knowledgeable.

More

If any of this resonates with you, consider the fact that it’s all within your reach – with a simple, easy and straightforward process called New Year’s Resolutions.

Now before you frown on something as simple as this – I have a special step-by-step process that is unique, fun and special.

Click on the hyperlink to have a look at what it’s all about – BEFORE you write it off.

Too many people write themselves off before the process even starts.

Too many people would “like their lives to be better” but can’t be bothered to make the SMALL investment necessary to get a lifetime of rewards…

If you are one of these people, you have already clicked off this page and have gone on to something else…

So if you are still reading this, there is a chance you might take the first step today.

But y’know what?

The odds are you won’t.

Most people have given up – on themselves.

They have given up on their ultimate dream and destiny.

I know it sounds pessimistic, sad and cynical. It is and it’s a statistical fact.

MOST people do not achieve their dream goals or live their dream life.

Somewhere along the path, they lose their way, they lose their motivation, they lose their belief, they lose their faith.

Rarely do they seek assistance or guidance.

For some it’s an ego thing – they want to do it on their own, even if that means they will fail or come up short.

For others, they simply have no belief it’s possible – for them.

But there is a small minority of people who have not given up. That small minority still has belief that all it takes is ONE decision – ONE step and their destiny can be altered.

ONE decision.

That’s all it takes. You know what that is – make that ONE decision that will make 2013 your best year ever and learn to do your New Year’s Resolutions in a new, fun and exciting way.

Yoga class empty, New Year’s Resolutions already forgotten!

At the beginning of the year, I blogged about my yoga class being full because people started their New Year’s Resolutions… We’re not even into March and my yoga class is essentially ‘empty’.

There’s no surprise, most people just don’t commit to their goals and therefore never realise their ultimate dreams or destinies.

I used to think it was sad, but no longer.

People who don’t want to commit to any level of discipline aren’t committed enough, don’t want it enough to bother so they haven’t lost anything of value because if it was valuable to them, they’d do something about it… Or so you’d think!

There is nothing wrong with settling for mediocrity – that’s where most people are – the average, the mean, median.

That’s where the NORMAL probability distribution curve’s name comes from.
It’s called NORMAL for a reason.

New Year's Resolutions, Goal Setting, Setting Goals

Normal Probability Distribution Curve

In fact, the curve kinda looks like a few of the people who were in yoga class, lying on their backs, at the beginning of the year… But I digress…

To get extra-ordinary results means you have to do what others aren’t willing to do.

Go to yoga class, go for a run, get to the gym, get on your bike, have a swim… Do something that will get you moving TOWARDS your goal/outcome/dream.

The great news IF you do actually show up and do ‘something’ – is that it gets easier. First of all, like in yoga class – 2/3 of the people are no longer attending. That puts you in the top 1/3 JUST BY SHOWING UP.

Within 3 to 4 weeks (experts claim it takes “21 days” to change a habit) you’ll start to feel, think and act differently – as if by magic.

But y’know what? I won’t waste your time or mine – you know where you’re at.

If you’re at the top end of the probability distribution curve – you’ll click on the hyperlink to determine how to make THIS YEAR YOUR BEST YEAR EVER!

If you’re in the BLUE ZONE of the curve above, all of this falls on deaf ears and you’ll just click away on to another page (if you haven’t already), chase another thought or idea and not following it up with any action.

Don’t worry, you’re in good company – MOST PEOPLE are dabblers. They fool themselves by starting a whole bunch of things, never finishing or following through on any of them so they FEEL like they’re doing something, but it’s all a waste of time, money and effort.

How do you STOP IT?

You know…

You just don’t do it.

New Year’s Resolutions… How Are They Going So Far?

New Year's Resolutions, Goal SettingThere is no doubt about it, New Year’s Resolutions are a powerful tool to achieve goals, yet only a few follow up and follow through on their resolutions…
Why is that?

One simple reason is that most people forget that decisions are made every minute of every day and they add up at the end of the week/month/year.

Non-decisions are the same – the decision NOT made to put your runners on to go for a run. The decision NOT to turn down the (extra) piece of pie. The decision NOT to get up early.

“It is in the moments of INdecision
that dreams are destroyed.”
– Dr Marc Dussault

If you made a list of New Year’s Resolutions for 2012 – take them out right now and re-commit yourself to following through.

If you’re not motivated – the problem is you have impotent goals.

You need something that will MOTIVATE, INSPIRE and MOVE YOU TO ACTION.

Pick something exciting, but within the realm of possibility – something you can really get enthused about – something that would CHANGE you and your life.

I know too many “people who end up where they don’t want to be” simply through lack of planning and commitment.

No decision IS a decision – it’s the worst one of all – one made by someone else for all the wrong reasons.

There is no joy in living a life by default.

To live a life by design, you need to know what YOU want and desire.

You decide.

By NOT deciding, all you’re doing is letting yourself down – no one cares that you don’t make a decision. That’s why it’s so easy.

One day leads to a week then to a month and before you know it, another year has passed. If you get lulled into complacency, a whole decade can pass you buy.

That’s tragic.

Don’t just sit there – do something!

Anything!

If you didn’t create a list of New Year’s Resolutions – do it now!

Vacation Planning Versus Goal Setting

The New Year is one of the most popular times of year for people to set goals – New Year’s Resolutions… This quote puts it all in perspective doesn’t it?
