However this year has worked out for you I’m sure you will agree that there are areas in your life where you wanted to achieve more than you have. If that’s the case then you might be surprised at how 2 simple questions can help you eradicate bad habits and add rocket fuel to your dreams.
Whatever your response to these questions, your answers will help you recognise if you’re on track to getting the results you want from 2015 and beyond, or not. If you follow the actions steps below you will have all the information you need to make an action plan that will get you where you want to be record time.
What are you waiting for?
1. “If an invisible person followed you around all day, what would they see?”
Would they see you wasting a lot of time? Would they see you working at your goals? Would they see someone that is simply going through the motions?
It is true that the life we have is largely the result of the actions that we take each day. Although these are driven by our deep inner beliefs and expectations the truth is that most of us do not do what’s required to get what we hope and hanker for.
Be honest now; are you taking actions that move you forward to the future you desire or are you engaged in time-wasting, worthless activity?
What would that invisible person logically conclude about you, your life, and your future based on what you do every day?
2. “If you lived that average day, every day, for the next 5 years, what is the logical outcome?”
So if you kept living your average day over and over, where is your life likely to end by this time next year? Now compare that stark conclusion with the life you’d really like to have. How close are they?
“if you keep doing what you do, you keep getting what you got so do something today that your future self will thank you for”
Are you likely to end up where you want to be financially?
Are you currently taking consistent action to have the financial life you desire?
Are you likely to have the body that you want?
Are you eating to feed your body or your fat cells? What about exercising regularly? Are you waiting to start tomorrow, or some other significant date you have set for the future? Getting the body you want will take a certain number of days, so you sooner you start to take the right action the sooer you will look and feel the way you want to.
Are you likely to be advancing in the career or getting the income you seek?
For example, based on your performance over the last year, do you think it’s probable that you’ll get a promotion any time soon? Working for yourself? Are you any closer to having your small business running profitably yet?
If we are truthful and honest about how we really spend (invest) our time it starts to become very clear why we have the lives we have.
We may be uncomfortable about the answers we hear. We may feel the need to make excuses for our behaviours, maybe circumstances necessitate that we cut ourselves a break and put a line under some event so we can move forward cleanly. Either way, whatever your current circumstances, success or failure in any endeavour depends on our attitude and the actions we take day in day out.
Action steps for effective change:
You can’t get where you want if you don’t know where you are going so it’s time to make a plan.
Go back and read over those questions again. Write down your answers honestly, even if it hurts or your feel embarrassed or foolish.
For each area you are dissatisfied or you see a need for improvement write down what you choose to let go of in your life, what you want that invisible person to see you doing each day, and the new habits you want to implement and be praised for.
Now, make a list of what you need to do on a consistent basis to achieve the changes and life you hope for?
If you want to lose 6 inches off your waist and shed 55 lbs by this time next year, then how will your new daily actions reflect that choice.
Now write down what your day will look like once you have committed to your new goal as if you are telling your best friend about it.
Choose one area of your life to improve at a time and start today.
What do you think?
The greatest gift you have been given is the gift of choice. Everything that now exists was seeded form a decision you made. Everyone has choice, evern if they don’t take advantage of it. What’s yours? We would love to hear about it.
