Will 2019 be your year? When I mean by that is: will it be your year that you achieve a level of success you didn’t think was possible? Years ago, people believed it was impossible to run a mile in under 4 minutes. The belief was that humans could not run that fast. The problem was nobody told that to Roger Bannister. He broke the 4-minute barrier on May 6, 1954. Today, the record time for a mile is: 3:43:13 held by a Moroccan named Hicham El Guerrouj.
You’re probably reading this on your smart phone right now. Hey, let’s not forget that not long ago the idea of a smart phone probably seemed like a dumb idea to many people. If the human mind can imagine it, then it can be done; however, your goals for the upcoming year must not just be in your imagination but something you can actually achieve. The next question you should ask yourself is: are my goals as lame as eating healthier or as big as breaking the 4-minute mile record?
Every year, I go through a process of setting goals and frame each of my goals around a key word. Last year, my word was “significant.” I set out not just to try to impact others but to significantly impact those around me. I still haven’t decided what word I am going to use for next year.
I am sharing this with you, because goal setting and more importantly your plan to achieve your goals is more than merely an exercise. You shouldn’t just go through the exercise but rather you must make it part of your DNA.
I understand that you cannot change your DNA. You’re born with it, so you have to live with it. However, it’s important that you shape what you do and who you become around your DNA. You need to view your goals in the same way as your annual DNA, and then build all your activities around those goals. If you don’t do this, life will simply take control of you. And if you’re going to achieve what you imagine, you must take control of your life.
If you’re serious about setting goals and achieving them, you should join me in my goal setting master class. This class will be a focused course that guides you step by step through this vital process. I promise one year from now you’ll be sitting here celebrating your huge success. Join me to find out more and take control of your life! Register now!
