Are you going to make new year’s resolutions for 2019?

Dig Yourself Into A Hole - The Exponential Growth Strategist

Most people want more from their life than they are currently getting.

The above metaphor of being in a hole is a great metaphor for NOT writing out New Year’s Resolutions and then not achieving “much”.

I have a program called My Best Year Ever that helps you to avoid digging the hole in the first place.

The proverbial hole is NOT having a goal or outcome in mind – especially as the NEW YEAR begins.

It’s the IDEAL TIME to climb OUT of the hole you’re in and create a BRAND NEW YOU…

I have to admit my bias – I have been “doing” New Year’s Resolutions for the past 20 years and my results speak for themselves.

Inertia – the hardest force to overcome

Today’s blog post is a reminder we all need – especially when the new year starts and we’re filled with optimism and hope for things to change.

Without wanting to sound heavy-handed, cynical or critical – no one aims to become overweight, fat or obese and yet in the developed world, the statistics are staggering – 2 out of every 3 people is considered overweight…

How does that happen?

One bite at a time.

The concept is called inertia: Defined as “The predisposition for a body to remain in the state that it’s in.”

We know the feeling when we’re lying in a warm, soft bed, the last thing we want is to get out of bed.

That’s inertia.

Inertia is the #1 force that prevents us from achieving our goals, dreams and aspirations.

The following 3 blog posts are “classics” – I encourage you to read them and make the decision to overcome your inertia – TODAY, THIS YEAR.

Are you a champion? Do you have what it takes to become one?

New Year’s Resolutions Cartoon

I don’t know if you “do” New Year’s Resolutions, but I do… It’s one of a handful of strategies that changed my life – literally.

New Year's Resolutions Cartoon

It’s a quick and easy thing to do, the challenge is to stick with it beyond February 1st!

Most people can’t even list 5 of their top 10 New Year’s Resolutions by the time Valentine’s Day comes around… Which reflects the poor results they get, however those that DO remember them achieve much more.

How much more?

A LOT more. I have developed a New Year’s Resolutions ‘system’ that I call My Best Year Ever. Click on the hyperlink and have a look. It’s not to late to make 2014 YOUR best year ever.

Running out of time for THIS year’s resolutions?

New Year's Resolutions, ResolutionsDid you make New Year’s Resolutions last year?

How’d you go with them?

Can you even remember what they were?

Do you feel like time has gotten away from you, sometimes spinning out of control?

If you’re like most people, you do it as an annual ritual (if you think about it in time) and then once they are ‘done’, you quickly forget about them.

I’ve devised a simple and easy program to make sure you not only create your list of New Year’s Resolutions, but stick with them and achieve more of them.

Click on one of the hyperlinks and decide that 2014 will be your best year ever!

Are you going to make New Year’s Resolutions for 2014?

New Year’s Resolutions are one of the easiest ways to set the wheels of success in motion. They can be the catalyst to create your ultimate dream destiny…

New Year's Resolutions

What if…

Those are two very powerful words.

Here’s the thing. Some people get what they want while others don’t.

  • It’s infuriating to know someone dumber than you is out-performing you in business or school.
  • It’s aggravating to have someone less physically capable beat you at your favorite sport.
  • It’s perplexing to see someone who started with less money than you build a ‘fortune’ that allows them to have the luxurious, stress-free lifestyle you’d like to have.

What if… you could learn how to accomplish all your goals?

What if… it took less than 5 minutes a week to implement?

What if… the strategies were proven and tested?

What if… they cost LESS than going to McDonald’s?

Just let yourself imagine those words.

Let your thoughts wander.

New Year's Resolutions, Resolutions, Wish List, Dream List, Vision Board

Listen to what you would say in the privacy of your own mind.

Feel what it would be like to have those things most important to you.

What if… You believed it was possible.

What if… You learned the strategies, techniques and tips you need.

What if… You applied them, one day at a time.

What if… You achieved one goal, then another, then another.

How different would your life be?

How much more could you do and contribute to others?

What if… you had a system to make them all come true?

What if… I gave you the link – would you make 2014 your best year ever?

Why not give yourself this Christmas gift?

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!
