With the new year brings new beginnings, new goals, changes and a new chance to make things happen. In order to get started right away on your new journey to success, there are three things you can do to get on the right track right away.
Change your mind. Start today with a new way of thinking. If you have a list of five things to do, and you’ve done 2 things, don’t think “I’ve only done 2 things” think instead, “I’ve gotten 2 things done and I’m determined to complete the other three. Don’t think, “I sure have a lot to do”. Think, “I have a big task to accomplish and I have what it takes to get it done!” Change your mind, change your life.
Take it one day at a time. If your goal is to lose weight by Spring, don’t focus on the date, focus on today. It’s about daily choices. What you eat and how you exercise today. If your goal is to increase sales by June, focus on those daily tasks that will get you to that goal by June. Your daily marketing, networking and service each day. Legendary basketball Coach Dean Smith once said, “don’t think about the next game, think about the next possession.
Choose an accountability partner. Find someone you trust, and who understands the goal you’re trying to accomplish. If you have business goals, choose an accountability partner who is a business owner. Make it a point to check in with them regularly to help you stay on top of your progress. You are more likely to get it done when you have to answer to someone. No one likes to have to make excuses or say they haven’t done what they need to do. You’ll be that much more motivated!
The best way to get started on achieving your goals is to get started! Don’t miss out on your opportunity to make this your best year yet! Here’s to abundant life in 2012!
