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.

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.

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.

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!

Are you going to make New Year’s Resolutions for 2012?

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…


“What if…”

What if… your childhood dreams actually came true…

What if… you could wave a magic wand and get anything you want…

What if… you could rub Aladdin’s Lamp and get any 3 wishes granted…

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 2012 your best year ever?

Why not give yourself this Christmas gift?

The Power Of One

power_of_one

The new year is a great time to do – New Year’s Resolutions. In fact, I have a 52-week program that can help you achieve your New Year’s Resolutions more easily, but that’s not the purpose of today’s post. As author Bryce Courtenay explains in his bestseller, The Power Of One, it’s all about “One idea, one heart, one mind, one plan, one determination.”

Furthermore, “The power of one is above all things the power to believe in yourself, often well beyond any latent ability you may have previously demonstrated. The mind is the athlete; the body is simply the means it uses to run faster or longer, jump higher, shoot straighter, kick better, swim harder, hit further, or box better. First with the head, then with the heart, you’ll be ahead from the start was more than simply mixing brains with guts. It meant thinking well beyond the powers of normal concentration and then daring your courage to follow your thoughts.”

That should be powerful enough to get you motivated to start writing your New Year’s Resolutions right now, or if you’ve already written them down, review them and take ONE action to making them a reality. Get to it!

New Year’s Resolutions

JanusNew Year’s Resolutions… they are aspirational, yet often vague and almost always corrective. People promise to spend more time with family, get fit, lose weight, quit smoking, reduce debt, consume less alcohol… yet just end up cataloguing the failings of the past year. As with most customs, New Year’s Resolutions are observed in gesture only, not followed up nor followed through. It’s a reflexive act rather than one of resolution or commitment.

People have been making New Year’s Resolutions since the time of ancient Rome, when the Julian Calendar was adopted in 45 BC. January 1 was introduced as the first day of the year after the Roman God, Janus (pictured left). Janus was the God of beginnings and endings, represented with two faces looking toward the future as well as the past.

Romans, believing that the gods witnessed the failures and shortcomings of the past year made promises to rectify the situation in the next year ahead.

Not surprisingly, 88 percent of New Year’s Resolutions fail. One of the reasons is that people tend to make the same ones over and over and over again without conviction or belief they can really change. Statistically, it takes up to 10 attempts to change which is well beyond most people’s attention span let alone level of discipline to make the change a reality.

Alarmingly, research shows that 25% of 1 out of every 4 people give up in the first WEEK.

So why is the prognosis so poor? One reason is that success is limited, yet most people (wrongly) believe it is achievable (when statistically it’s not – only 1 person can win a Gold Medal amongst hundreds of competitors).

Take quitting smoking as an example: It takes 6 to 12 attempts to stop smoking. One survey in 2008 reported that only 11%, 1 out of 9, people who set that as a New Year’s Resolution achieved their goal and stopped smoking.

There is hope – people who did achieve their New Year’s Resolutions did so, on average after 6 attempts.

To achieve your New Year’s Resolutions, you need a plan, simple as that. Ideally, you write a PLEDGE to yourself and you marshall help from others close to you who can help you. For example, if you want to get fit, get a buddy to walk or run with you, play a sport… If you want to lose weight, have family members help by reducing fatty or high calorie foods.

Without a plan, it’s simple – put your list away because nothing’s going to change. The odds are stacked against you.

Of course as you’d expect, there is a way to stack the odds in your favour… CLICK HERE -> To Make Next Year Your Best Year Ever.
