New Year’s Day 2013 is less than two months away. Right now you may be one of those people who are already planning so many things they are going to change in 2013. Some have realized it’s time to lose those few pounds; it will be time to start an exercise routine. For some it will be a time of getting rid of those bad habits. One of the things that I have always been behind over the years was the National Smoke Out Day. It’s that one day a year people are asked to give up smoking for just one day.
I want you to think of what New Year’s resolutions you wrote for 2012. Think back because I have been big on making changes this year, and started talking about it last year at this time.
New Year’s Day is a great time to start over, to get the feeling of “I can do this; it’s a brand new start.” We all want that a brand new start don’t we? We all have the greatest feeling of hope when we talk about a brand new start. It reminds me of how the country felt four years ago when President Obama was elected the first time. The message of hope and change was huge in our conversations.
Right now it’s that time in life again. We are discussing the topic of the self-help cycle this week and how to change it from a revolving cycle to a permanent success in our personal life. I want you to think of how many times you have made it to this part of any self-help program you started.
I call this the dating phase of the self-help cycle. The first date is always so exciting and you can’t wait to get that second date. Maybe you attended some events, or finally decided in 2012 to take action and invest in a self-help course; or maybe you invested in some next-level coaching or mastermind.
The first few months of this process are so exciting and wild as we are really feeling like this is going to be easy. I am excited as I watched the last few weeks in the chat room of our mastermind group, which I’m at this week. My new friend Cynthia is posting in the chat room from the back of the workbook, the 52 weeks of action taken from the event we attended in September.
You see, so many are so excited to be making these steps; we see results changing. For my new clients it is so exciting to see the first three months of clearing out clutter in life. I love to see as space opens up in life from changes they made; I love to see how they feel when they find the room to bring in things that will make them successful.
So now comes the challenge: how many programs in your life have you started and not finished? I want you to pull them from the shelf and write down a list of them. Now add to the comment section of this blog the number of programs you started but have not finished.
Come back tomorrow to find out why you have not finished them. See what has kept you and many others from finishing them. Watch as we finish this week on how you can get your life back on track to use those tools and build the success you want in life.
