A new year is upon us.
Many of us will make a promise to ourselves as to what type of person we want to become this year.
This year? Isn’t that short sighted? A year is not a lot of time. And IF we achieve what we set out to conquer for the year, then what? This yearly revolution tends to require us to constantly be reinventing ourself.
Instead, try to ask yourself where you want to be in 20-30 years and beyond. What type of legacy do you want to leave on Earth after you die? Make sure this vision of yourself is titanic. Make sure it’s unreasonable.
Then determine which specific critical actions increase the probability of getting closer to your goals. And instead of making a resolution or goal around what specifically you want, make it a goal to form new habits of action to perform on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
Write these critical actions out on a desk calendar for the whole year. The repetition of writing these out over the course of an entire year will solidify your commitment and promise to yourself. Every day you complete all of these critical actions will be a win for the day.
You will start to see the results from your newly formed habits. And once you start seeing the results then you will start to believe. And once you believe, watch out! Your self doubt will begin to fade and before you know it, winning will be something you do just by habit!
