Take some time to think about all of last year’s experiences, and more importantly, hold on to all the lessons you learned from those experiences. Understand that everything that occurred last year was simply a result. Don’t get caught up in labeling those results as good or bad – as successes or as failures.
Anything that is worth achieving is worth putting in writing. Make a list of the major goals that you’d like to achieve this year. Each of these goals should represent a significant milestone in the long term vision for your life. Once you have your goals in writing,put them in a place where you will see them everyday.
Exercise is not something you “have time for”. It is something you make time for. It is also the one thing that provides you with strength, energy, and vitality to be more effective in all the other areas of your life. Exercise is an investment in your health, your life, your longevity, and your productivity.
Dissolve relationships that don't support your success. Understand that you become the average of the people you spend the most time with. If the attitudes, philosophies, and behaviours of the people around you are not aligned with those of the person you intend to become, you must begin dissolving those relationships.
As is true of all living things in the universe, they're either growing or they are dying. There is no stagnation. If you're not continuously learning and growing, you're falling behind. Creating a personal development plan means committing to nourishing your mind with new, empowering information on a consistent basis.
To ensure you make this year your best year is to hold yourself accountable.Lack of accountability is one of the single greatest reasons for failure. If no one is holding us accountable for the consistent implementation of new habits or behaviors, we are more likely to fall back into our old patterns.
Create a Breakthrough Goal for the Year. A well-formed goal is both powerful and measurable. Specifically, a goal must quantify something, and it must list a specific date for completion. Because a breakthrough goal has the power to transform your life, it also has the power to make this year your best year ever.
