Hello. I hope you’re having a great holiday season! We only have about two weeks to go in the year. Christmas is coming next week and there’s lots to do. What do you have planned for next year? I’m sure you want to be further ahead 12 months from now, right? I’m sure there are things you want to do. Things you want to have accomplished. Well, I really think that 2015 is going to be great!! Think of everything we got done in 2014, there’s no reason we can’t keep it going, right?
You see what I did there? No, I didn’t make a mistake. I just wanted to make a point.
The point is this:
The next 12 months are coming. What are you going to do about it?
Do you want to look back at 2014 a year from now and be proud of what you’ve accomplished or do you want to look back at all the excuses you made to yourself and wonder where you could have been. Yes, it’s easier to sit on the couch. Yes, it’s easier to surf the internet. Yes, it’s easier to say that you just don’t have time. We know the truth, though. The funny thing is that you knew the truth at the time, too. You know whether you really did what you could to reach your goals in 2013 and if you didn’t, then it’s time to step up and really make the decision that 2014 WILL BE DIFFERENT!!
I’m not going to say much more about that but I do have just thing to ask. Please don’t say that you have goals if you’re not willing to do anything to meet them. If that’s the case, then your real goal is to stay just where you are. You might not like where you are, but if the thought of going outside your comfort zone just a little bit is too terrifying to even contemplate, then I submit to you that you’d rather maintain your current position then do anything about it. Therefore your actual goal isn’t change.
What are your real goals and, more importantly, what are you willing to do to meet them?
