As a New Year rolls around at midnight tomorrow, it’s a time when people often reflect on the year that’s gone, and look forward to the year that’s coming up.
Or they just get drunk.
“How did I make this last year count?” is a great question to ask yourself.
What did you do well? Where did you make progress? How did you grow?
But also, what did you do poorly? Where was progress less than you’d hoped for? Where did you play small?
And the most important question; why was the progress not where it needed to be?
Remember, Results come from Actions, which are driven by Behaviours, which are shaped by our Mindset.
As you enter the New Year, what Mindset changes need to happen to make sure 2017 counts? To ensure you experience, grow and contribute at the level you desire?
It takes courage to stare your down your greatest fears. Are you ready for that?
(Here’s a video I shot a couple of years ago that walks you through a three-step process to master your income. While this particular video is focussed on income, you can make it work for anything. It’s pretty to the point so only watch it if you’re actually prepared to step it up. If you’d rather complain about all the external reasons you can’t have what you want, then go back to browsing Facebook.)
Sometimes, I don’t have anything to add.
Recently I was watching a video of our Prime Minister, Jacinda Adern, speaking about women’s suffrage.
Have you ever seen someone driving a car you want, running a business you want, in a relationship you want, ***insert any reason in here*** and been jealous of them and wished you had that?
This past year has been tough in many ways.
When you know, you know.
“Never give up,” I’m sure you’ve heard that.
You’ve got two options..
“You’ll pay more, but you’ll get more than you paid for.”
How often do you hear the statement, ‘there just aren’t enough hours in the day”?
This is the first blog I’ve written since my cousin Matthew was killed flying a helicopter a few weeks ago.
