Yes, I said it! Welcome to the greatest day of your life and I mean it!!! If your not living your absolute ideal, most beautiful, sunny, beaming, joyous life in all arenas including family, fitness, nutrition, business, sleep and happiness then stick around and join us on this legendary journey we call LIFE. I promise I will teach you a few skills to become that person you truly want to be along with learning how to perform at optimal levels.
Today is the first day of the rest of the life that you choose to create. There is no one in this world that has power or control over you except you!
Attitude is everything was once quoted by an early client of mine and she actually had a terrible one. Always a problem, never her fault, complaining, nagging and creating more of the negative energy she already expressed. This relentless work at being unhappy actually created more unhappiness and the vicious cycle revolved.
You see we are all creatures of habit both good and bad and when we want to TRANSFORM ourselves into someone of something better we have to fight not only breaking an old habit like drinking soda with a new one like drinking water. Your actually walking up hill both ways, possibly in the snow and it happens to all of us every single time especially around the New Year.
Why do resolutions not work? Because the idea that your not going to drink a soda for a year after drinking them for years and replacing a sweet Coca Cola with a bottle of water for 365 days is too much for the kind of mind we Paleo Neanderthals have to handle. We need smaller more specific targets to hit continuously so that these small victories over time create a compound factor that snowballs into more victories which in return over time becomes a habit until eventually you can’t remember the last time you had a soda was.
Just yesterday I asked Exclusive Coaching Client since 2009 Reem Kidess what her 2016 VISION was? She replied with “Traveling more and practicing more French”. Easy enough! She has the resources to go anywhere in the WORLD and grew up speaking French. However with no commitment, timeline or TARGET to hit why or when would she truly need to reach them and take ACTION towards accomplishing them. So I used my best Luke Skywalker Jedi mind trick and said…. What if you accomplished both of those on New Years eve?! She looked at me SMUG! and I said let’s take that grand IDEA and turn it into a TARGET you can HIT tonight. Plan your next trip, choose the destination, buy your tickets and pick from the Top 100 French movies of all time all from the comfort of your home. BANG!!! Who’s the greatest Coach in the WORLD?! Well thank you but it wasn’t me it was her and you that have the POWER to make these decisions towards creating KEYSTONE habits that generate more positive outcomes and eventually give you the confidence to do ANYTHING you put your VISION to.
This is the Power of Habit by: Charles Duhigg and my first book mention of 2016. A direct recommendation from Matt Blanton member since 2010 and one of many I will share with you in the New Year.
