Another year, come and gone. What did YOU accomplish this year?
Hopefully you’re in better shape today than you were on December 31st of 2008, are more happy, have more wealth, more time-freedom, and your business is going through the roof.
Unfortunately, for everybody that didn’t happen. Those people got caught up in the day-to-day, trying to “maintain” or thinking they would get something done tomorrow when they could have gotten it done today.
And that brings me to today’s topic…
It amazes me that people will try to think of New Years Resolutions up to an entire month (sometimes more) to figure out what they’re going to accomplish next year.
Because after all – “next year will be different” – right?
Ha! Yea right. People have been saying that their entire lives, yet each year…no improvement happens.
So let me ask you something.
If you have a New Years Resolution you want to start tomorrow…why are you starting TOMORROW?
Why not today?
Why not yesterday?
Why not 6 months ago?
In my eyes, resolutions are a false hope we create for ourselves to make ourselves feel better thinking that next year might be different. Deep down we know nothing is REALLY going to change in the long-term…we’re simply deluding ourselves into thinking it is.
Instead of making a resolution, or saying “I’ll do it next week”, or pretending you’re going to plan it out first and get your idea perfect before implementation…just do the damn thing right then and there.
Don’t fool yourself into thinking you’ll be able to pull it together in the future – just sit yourself down for 30 minutes, make a game-plan on how you’re going to fix whatever problem you’re having with your personal life, health, business, etc….and implement it THAT DAY!
And while you’re figuring out your game plan theirs one thing you must understand…
You need to find the ROOT of the problem you’re having.
Here’s an example.
Can’t motivate yourself to work out? You might think it’s because you don’t like working out…but the root problem may simply be that you don’t like doing the TYPE of workouts you’re doing, or you don’t like the PLACE you’re working out at.
Think deep to figure out the real problem, and you’ll not only get fix the problem much more quickly, but it will be a long-term solution instead of a pipe-dream.
I just want to take a minute to thank everybody who has read this blog, commented on it, helped me with improvements, been a client of mine, told others about the blog, purchased The 30 Day Copywriting Challenge, and everybody else I’ve talked to this year!
I wish you the BEST of luck in 2010 and hope your business goes through the roof, and I also hope you can find ways to not only make more money, but become healthier, more happy, more peacefulÂ and anything else “good” that you can think of 🙂
