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.

All Faith Needs Feet But What Are Your Action Plans?

All Faith Needs Feet But What Are Your Action Plans?
Michelle here again.

How is everything?

I want to share with you a story of mine that could bring some awareness for you.

A subscriber recently wrote to me:

A friend of mine is on a fixed income and has maxed out his credit cards (nearing $10,000).
He has started a new business, but currently has no customers or prospects.

He is affirming that he is already successful and debt-free.
What is the best way for him?
Should he write checks to pay his bills as they arrive,
even though the money may not be in his account at the moment?
Wouldn’t these concrete actions demonstrate his faith?

My Answer:

Faith is a wonderful thing – and very necessary.
There are, however, approaches that may look like faith but lead us in risky directions.
Please tell your friend that he needs to pay close attention to “real” actions and concentrate on learning to provide a service to other people that they want.
(Note the emphasis is on what “they” want.)

Paying bills with rubber checks isn’t an act of faith.
It’s desperate gambling.
I know from hard experience that it’s nearly impossible to get the right mindset for real faith or confidence when you’re circling the drain.
Your friend needs to get his feet firmly under himself with real money
even if he has to go tend bar or wash dishes for the extra income for a bit.
Honest, it’s no disgrace (unless he stays there).

Remember that all faith needs feet.
If you’re in an airplane on its way down in a power dive,
you put on your parachute first.
And THEN you do affirmations.

The old biblical phrase “faith without works is dead” means just that –
belief needs to be connected organically with action.

Productive action.

If it’s not, then it’s not true belief, it’s only an attempt to con yourself and the gods.

Too many people hope that they can do affirmations or pray or ASSERT,
and this will save them from having to make a decision and take action.
But that’s not the way it works.
Action and affirmations must be bonded together as a single unit and support each other like two legs.
Neither faith nor action can stand alone.
So you might want to tell your friend that positive thinking is good (and absolutely necessary), but positive action is also an essential ingredient.
Simply put, he’ll never pray himself up a hill.
When he’s willing to take action, with all the stops out,
his faith will bring the lucky breaks, and the chance meetings with just the
right people at the right times to help move him forward.
But it’s the action that anchors all that potentiality into reality.

ACTION.

Otherwise, it’s all vapor.

“Willing to take action with all the stops out”

… some folks call that enthusiasm, others call it commitment.
It’s often hard to get people to see that taking a detour on the way to their goals is not a “wrong turn.”
It’s just another way of getting where they’re going.
Whatever it takes.

Just remember that you don’t have to give up on your dreams and goals when some little thing comes along (or not so little).
The goal is what’s important, not every little step it takes to get there
(as long as we remember to TAKE the steps).

I’d guess that the old gremlin of impatience has killed more dreams than any other single influence.
It’s so common to think,

“If I’m not getting there RIGHT NOW, then that’s it; I’ll never make it.”

It might help to think of your vision of your future as a very penetrating stare.
It penetrates anything that may seem to block your path.
As long as you keep seeing what’s in your future, you won’t become stalled by the stuff that crops up in front of you today.

This may all sound stale, but it’s true, every bit of it.
And I learned it all the absolutely hardest way.
I lived through it over and over and over and…

But eventually, even a super-dense gal like me can learn, proving that anybody on earth can do it.
