Everything big starts small.
— Peter Thiel

No matter what daily obstacles flare up, each one of us has the power to make positive changes happen in our lives and in the lives of other human beings we serve in the process.

In a time when everyone has found the easiest route towards complaining and feeling powerless, it is the power you possess inside of you which can set you free.  

Remember way back… 30 days ago to be exact… when we welcomed in a brand new year?  Along with it we had our hopes, dreams, and goals to get us there. Those beautiful ambitions that made the year ahead seem a whole lot more inspiring!

Well here is the deal: goals take a whole lot more to achieve than just thinking about them.  They take focused work and attention to the details as we have been talking about all month.

The reason 92% of the people never complete a new goal is because they don’t know how to take action step-by-step, inch-by-inch. 

If you are having trouble creating goals in the first place, here is a link to our free Goal Planning Worksheet.

Once you have the rubber meeting the road, it’s time to take those goals and start building them into small pieces that you can actually drive towards. Use the Race to Victory Productivity Worksheet to keep the momentum going.

If this year is the one where you want to make a difference no matter what else is going on in this crazy world of ours then keep asking yourself – “if not now, when?”

To take it one step further, world famous photographer Chase Jarvis had a great little video I stumbled upon this week in which he asked, “What if every time you found the words I don’t have the time coming out of your mouth in response to doing something you responded to yourself loud and clear this is not a priority for me right now.”

When we find the time for what matters most to us, then what matters most to us happens. Look at your calendar… when are you actually making your new years goals a priority in your daily life?  

You also to believe so strongly in your idea that you can look past the naysayers (including your own inner critic) to go ahead against adversity and make this the year you make a difference in a whole new way!

If you are having trouble completing these exercises by yourself I am more than happy to help you with some custom strategy and support.   Simply send me an email with your current pain points and we can talk about how to take the next steps forward. 

To Your Success and Victories,
