5 Simple Steps to make 2017 the Best Year Ever!

So how was your 2016?
Was it by far the best year of your life?
I mean over the top, you can’t wait for more?
If you are like most people, you probably answered no.

5 Simple Steps to make 2017 the Best Year Ever!
If you had the choice of spending the same 365 days and just surviving it or having the best year of your life,
which would you choose?
Of course you would choose the best year of your life!
You know what you would prefer, you always get the same 365 days each year,
so what is getting in the way and how do we get it out of there?
First, let’s start with the question, how did you do on your Top 3 goals in 2016?
Most people don’t even have a top one goal, let alone a history of what they did on their top 3 goals.

Well, let’s turn that around right now.
5 Simple Steps to make 2017 the Best Year Ever!
Step 1:  (Spend only 30 seconds on this. REALLY!)

Pick your number one goal in each of the following categories.
Physical, Financial, and Relationship.

STOP! Do it now.

We are talking only 30 seconds and then write the goals down.
If you had achieved these 3 goals in 2016, do you think 2016 would have been your best year ever?
If you answer is anything but YES, redo Step 1 with bigger goals.

We have done it.
In only 30 seconds.
Can you believe it?
Finally, you are starting your new year off with actual targets that will make your 2016 the best year ever.
How much better do you feel knowing you now have clear targets to go after?
It kind of takes the anxiety out and allows you to get down to business.
You know what you want, now let’s get you there with Steps 2 through 5.
Remember, you have only 4 and ½ minutes left.

Step 2: Turn your Top 3 Goals into your Top 3 one year goals.

If you can not complete your Top 3 Goals in one year, reduce them down to where you can complete them in one year.
Make sure you don’t reduce them down to the point where they don’t inspire you, but just enough to make them one year goals.

Step 3: Choose 3 people to hold you accountable to your top 3 Goals, one person for each goal.

Sometimes we are our own worst enemy.
We jump from goal to goal never achieving any of them.
Once you achieve one of your goals, the new ideas that you will start having will be 1000 times greater then the ideas you are having right now.
Just know that these goals you just wrote down ARE the ones that are truly important to you, because you were not given enough time to think about choosing them.
They were already there.

Step 4:  Get out a blank piece of paper.

Choose one of the persons that will be holding you accountable.
Write Dear <Their Name> at the top of the paper.
Followed by, I, <Your Name> promise to consistently make progress on
The top goal they are supporting you on for the entire year of 2017 until it is achieved.
I will give you monthly updates on my progress.
Sign your name on the bottom.
Do the same thing with your other 2 goals.

Step 5: Give those papers to the respective persons and post your goals in a location where you can review them daily.

Update your new accountability buddies on your progress and look out 2017.

Congratulations on completing this exercise.

I hope it took you 5 minutes or less.
It is actually better the quicker you do it.
It prevents all the second guessing that naturally takes place.
If you skipped over these exercises you will never understand their power.
It’s like the difference between imagining you are standing at the edge of a cliff and actually standing at the edge of cliff.

Once you achieve any of your top 3 goals,
you will be flooded by ideas that are 1000’s of times better than before you started on these goals.
You can not imagine what you will have access to once you complete just one of these goals.

5 Simple Steps to make 2017 the Best Year Ever!

Good luck on your best year ever!

By the way, if you are looking to maximize your goals in 2017, financial success should be one of your list.

If yes, you might just need this. Check this new topic above everyone is watching and learning.

This might just be what you need to achieve your goal.

 

The Gratitude Attitude

Gratitude is one of the most powerful forces in
the Universe. It may not look as good as money, a
big car, a palatial house, or the latest makeover
– in fact, you can’t see it at all
– but, as I’m going to show you, gratitude has more power to
change your life than all these material things
put together.

The dictionary tells us that gratitude is “the
expression of gratefulness and thanks” but this
doesn’t begin to convey its real effect. Here are
an alternative set of definitions.

  • Gratitude stops you taking your life for granted
    and helps you realize how many good things you
    have in your life.
  • Gratitude makes others feel better.
  • Gratitude makes you feel better. In the words of
    an Arabian proverb, “The hand that gives the roses
    always keeps some of the scent.”
  • Gratitude raises your awareness of things around
    you.
  • Gratitude is easy, quick, and simple.
  • Gratitude is an instant blues-breaker and
    stress-reliever.
  • Gratitude changes your view of so-called “bad”
    things.
  • Gratitude frees you from petty annoyances.
  • Gratitude inspires you.
  • Gratitude puts your thoughts and feelings on a
    high vibration level that in turn attracts back to
    you more things to be grateful for.
  • Gratitude nourishes the soul.
  • Gratitude is like compound interest on money in
    the bank: the more you put in, the more you get
    out.
  • Gratitude is a spiritual act because it
    acknowledges that the origin of all good things is
    a source outside ourselves.
  • Gratitude puts you on a direct line to God.

That’s the “what” of gratitude.
To show you the “how”, here are three things you can do to make
the Gratitude Attitude a firm fixture in your
life.

  1. Create a Thank Bank.

A Thank Bank is simply a place where you can jot down all the
things that you are grateful for in your life. You
can split the bank into different accounts such as
Family, Surroundings and Work, and then simply
start writing out your thanks until you stop. Put
your list somewhere safe and pull it out when
you’re feeling down and you’ll instantly change
your mood.

  1. Show Gratitude Quietly.

Don’t turn gratitude into a promotional or motivational tool.
Too much thanks is as ineffective as too little.
Instead, express your thanks in quiet ways: a
thought, a prayer, a one-on-one word, a note of
appreciation. Give people gifts of thanks that
aren’t bought at shops: a bit of your time, a
sacrifice, something valuable to you. Remember the
story in the Bible of the widow, who gave a small
money gift in thanks even though it was worth
everything to her.

  1. Always Replace the 3 C’s With the 3 A’s.

If you work or manage others, and sometimes
feel the need to use one of the 3 C’s –
complaining, condemning, and criticizing – replace
them with the 3 A’s of Accepting, Acknowledging,
and Appreciating. Accept people for who they are;
acknowledge them for what they do; and appreciate
them for just being around. Remember that when you
appreciate others, your reputation and respect
appreciates too.

There’s nothing complicated about gratitude. It’s
something we can all do. We so often don’t do it
because we forget, because we focus on the few
so-called bad things in our lives, and because we
take the wonderful things for granted. So change
your life.

Put gratitude just below your level of
consciousness, and every day will become one of
joy and delight.

Why Success Stories Often Begin With Failure?

Success Stories Often Begin With Failure.

Hope you are feeling in need of a motivation boost!

So here it goes 🙂

Why the Best Success Stories Often Begin With Failure

 

Successful people are great storytellers.

But Success Stories Often Begin With Failure

Do you agree?

They have perfected the art of persuasion.

 

They can frame strong arguments and voice them clearly and concisely.

These storytellers are often pros at sharing their success stories.

If you ask one of these people to tell you about themselves they will dive into a script

of their many successes throughout their life while cruising through their resume.

Many of us are these people.

How many times have you rattled off your well-rehearsed story of your life to someone else with pride?

You’ve perfected this story and framed it to be grand and impressive.

 

Every now and then a storyteller may share a hardship they faced in their story but then explain how they overcame it and reached eventual success.

 

But never does one go through the many things that went wrong.

 

But what I think is that the best success stories are often begin with failures.

For instance, the famous people that you know of downs not always start from success but instead they build them from failure .

Just check out their stories of failure.

  1. Bill Gates watched his first company crumble.

Bill Gates is now one of the world’s wealthiest individuals, but he didn’t earn his fortune in a straight line to success. Gates entered the entrepreneurial scene with a company called Traf-O-Data, which aimed to process and analyze the data from traffic tapes (think of it like an early version of big data).

 

He tried to sell the idea alongside his business partner, Paul Allen, but the product barely even worked. It was a complete disaster. However, the failure did not hold Gates back from exploring new opportunities, and a few years later, he created his first Microsoft product, and forged a new path to success.

 

  1. Henry Ford: While Ford is today known for his innovative assembly line and American-made cars, he wasn’t an instant success. In fact, his early businesses failed and left him broke five time before he founded the successful Ford Motor Company.

 

  1. Walt Disney: Today Disney rakes in billions from merchandise, movies and theme parks around the world, but Walt Disney himself had a bit of a rough start. He was fired by a newspaper editor because, “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” After that, Disney started a number of businesses that didn’t last too long and ended with bankruptcy and failure. He kept plugging along, however, and eventually found a recipe for success that worked.

Scientists and Thinkers

 

These people are often regarded as some of the greatest minds of our century, but they often had to face great obstacles, the ridicule of their peers and the animosity of society.

 

“There is nothing like knowing you have a real opportunity to affect the future in a positive way.”

Tisha Johnson

 

That’s right, you do not quit is the key to success.

 

Only YOU and you yourself is able to find the right path to success.

 

I do have a video to feed you some motivation and this video is so very powerful!

While I was watching, I couldn’t help think that

 

“This Stuff Should Be Taught To Every Single Child”

Please take a few minutes to watch this.
