Year after year, we make the same resolutions:
I am going to lose weight.
I am going to spend more time with my family.
I am going to work out.
I am going to quit smoking.
… fall in love.
… get organized.
… stop something.
… start something.
How about this – stop making the same old annual resolutions that don’t ever amount to much?
How about one single GOAL, “This year, I will transform my life.”
Here are 13 steps (goals) that can do just that – transform your life. Imagine if you would focus on just one of these every week for the next 13 weeks, and repeat that for three more 13-week cycles the remainder of the year. Where would you be this time next year?
If these goals sound like a meaningful challenge for you, and you are serious about pursuing them, let’s talk!
Thirteen Steps, (they are also great Affirmations) in no particular order:
1. Attitude: I resolve to have a positive attitude in all situations.
My beliefs determine my attitudes, which lead to my results.
2. Game Plan: I resolve to develop and implement a game plan in each area of my life.
Goal planning and achievement are essential parts of the success process.
3. Keeping Score: I resolve to keep score in the game of life.
A scoreboard forces me to check and confront the results, making the needed adjustments in order to win.
4. Purpose: I resolve to discover my God-given purpose.
When my potential, passions and profits intersect, my purpose is revealed.
5. Character: I resolve to choose character over reputation anytime they conflict.
My character is who I am, and my reputation is only what others say that I am.
6. Conflict Resolution: I resolve to develop the art of conflict resolution.
Because relationship breakups and unresolved conflicts destroy a community’s unity and growth.
7. Financial Management: I resolve to develop financial intelligence.
My wealth is compounded when incomes are higher than expenses over time.
8. Systems Thinking: I resolve to develop systems thinking.
By viewing life as interconnected patterns rather than isolated events, I improve my leverage.
9. Adversity Quotient: I resolve to develop Adversity Quotient.
Adversity Quotient leads to perseverance in overcoming obstacles and setbacks.
10. Leadership Resolution: I resolve to develop the art and science of leadership.
Everything rises and falls based upon the leadership culture created within my community and culture starts within me.
11. Reprogramming the Subconscious: I resolve to align my conscious (ant) with my subconscious (elephant) mind towards my vision.
Ending the civil war between them is crucial for all achievement.
12. Friendship: I resolve to develop the art and science of friendship.
Everyone needs a true friend to lighten the load when life gets heavy.
13. Legacy: I resolve to reverse the current of decline in my field of mastery.
A true legacy leaves the world a better place than I found it.
