bast time to plant a tree

The BEST time to create & KEEP MOMENTUM in your business was when you first started… the second best time is NOW!!!

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS?  I LOVE making New Year’s resolutions.  I use the optimism of the moment as motivation to get started.  The problem is – that won’t sustain you by itself.  Here are some steps that WILL!

Remember that your EGO wants to keep you the same.  If you feel resistance, start making excuses, have negative thoughts (like… I can’t do this ~ This isn’t for me ~ This is too hard…) REMEMBER it isn’t true!  It’s FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real).   That is just your Ego trying to stop you.  Great job Ego, it can be pretty sneaky… why not decide to outsmart it this year!! Remember your Positive Affirmations, that will help keep Ego under control.

Decide what you want in 2015.  Then break it down to smaller milestones that you will celebrate, reward and CONGRATULATE YOURSELF for when you achieve them!

WHAT DO YOU SUPPOSE ARE THE 3 MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO FOR SUCCESS IN 2015?

1-HAVE A POSITIVE MINDSET,  A POSITIVE EXPECTATION THAT YOU WILL SUCCEED!

2- PLAN – get a planner or notebook or app to write these things down.

3-FOLLOW THROUGH WITH ENERGY AND INTENTION

Let’s look at these 3 in a little more detail:

1-HAVE A POSITIVE MINDSET:

START YOUR DAY WITH AN INTENTION TO HAVE A GREAT DAY.  MAYBE PUT A POST-IT ON YOUR BATHROOM MIRROR “I CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY AND HAVE A GREAT DAY TODAY”.   START WITH GRATITUDE.  WHENEVER YOU GO TO THE DARK SIDE OF SELF PITY OR DISCOURAGEMENT, GO TO GRATITUDE INSTEAD.   IF YOU DON’T THINK YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO BE GRATEFUL FOR CALL ME.  I WILL MOST LIKELY BE ABLE TO PUT IT INTO PERSPECTIVE FOR YOU.

PLUGGING IN will help you keep a positive mindset about your biz, coming to trainings, being with your JP family…   WINTER REGIONAL FEB 6-7 . IMAGE SEMINAR FEB 8. GET REGISTERED ASAP. YOU CAN COUNT IT FOR YOUR 2014 TAXES IF YOU REGISTER NOW.  THIS WILL HELP YOU GET YOUR HEAD/MIND IN THE SPACE YOU NEED IT IN FOR HAPPINESS, SUCCESS AND POSITIVE RESULTS.

**Let’s start with an activity that will help you plan:

Pretend it’s 12-31-15 – your best friend and confidant asks you “how was your year?’ what do you want to say? Dream a little, stretch a bit, what do you really WANT to be able to say about your life and your JP biz? Now… let’s go forward figuring out the activities that you’ll need to do to get there. DON’T LET THE HOW TO STOP YOU!!!   WHEN THE WHAT IS CLEAR , THE HOW TO WILL APPEAR.

Now based on that:

  1. PLAN – start with a word or theme for the year that will move you towards what you want to be able to say on New Years’ Eve 2015! .  2015 is the year of: _________
  2. Pick a skill or quality you want more of in your business.   There are thousands to choose from. Maybe it will be courage, self-discipline, expect to win, consistency… WHATEVER!  … So… your 2015 plan is The Year of THEME + Skill
  3. Then, Just like we do one simple change in our health-= let’s institute One Simple change every month that will work towards YOUR THEME & SKILL of the year. You can plan all 12 months ahead of time.

Honestly guys, letting thoughts float thru our heads or words floating out of our mouths’ during a conversation… ie: “yes, I need to get better at that, I wish I would…, I wish I had…” ,  doesn’t change anything. Spending a few minutes thinking about it and making a decision to take one bite of the elephant at a time and PLANNING how you’ll do that –and writing it down – what bite to take first. One step at a time … THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!!

THEN:  PUT IMPORTANT DATES IN YOUR CALENDAR – CONFERENCE, FAMILY OBLIGATIONS… WWW.PREVENTIONCHICAGO.COM, CONFERENCE IN SACRAMENTO – APRIL 16-18; NASHVILLE OCT 15-17, 2015;  PHOENIX MARCH 17-19 2016;  ST LOUIS -OCTOBER 20-22. 2016;  ANAHEIM, CA APRIL 20-22 2017;  INDIANAPOLIS OCT 19-21, 2017.  How’s that for planning ahead!

Then start planning your own JP events – HLP’s, customer appreciation gatherings, Facebook parties, ANYTHING… but schedule something monthly – that’s only 12 things per year.   Plan with your buddy, sponsor ~ ask for help.  Just get it scheduled!

Plan regular communicate with your team & customers – some type of regular newsletter perhaps – can just be an email, but a snail mail a couple times/year is a really good idea. I will admit, I’ve focused on email so far – but I have this in my plan for 2016.

Planning is HUGE! If you go thru your day with no structure, you will end up at 9pm wondering where the day went, with little to nothing done towards your goals. If you don’t plan, and prioritize YOUR Goals, & your activities to get to your goals, you will likely become part of helping someone else get their emergencies handled.   If you lead by example, plan – then plan the activities and the time sessions to accomplish them —- and let people know that you are not available during that time – ‘you’ have another commitment during that time’ you are showing that you respect yourself, your goals and your time – and other people are unlikely to respect your time if you don’t.

Then #3-DO . – FOLLOW THROUGH WITH ENERGY AND INTENTION

If you miss a day,  don’t beat yourself up, be DELIGHTED with yourself for noticing you missed days.  And, be sure to liberally praise yourself for your successes AND for noticing on the days you missed.  YEAH YOU!!!  You can start fresh tomorrow!

There is great power for you waiting when you notice that there is a difference.

Focus on the present moment. What is the ONE thing you can do today, right now, towards bringing your target into reality? Don’t rush, don’t hurry.  AND, like Yoda says: “Don’t try… there is no try, only DO or do not!”  Just DO that one thing you can do in that moment.  Make that ONE simple change, take that ONE bite of the elephant, that ONE baby step that will bring your dream into reality!

BE award of how Ego sneakily try’s to distract you from doing that thing… Observe it doing it and see how this makes you feel… Then tell yourself , ‘will my future self thank me for what I am about to do!’

So set achievable targets for yourself, enlist some help, have some FUN!  And, get ready to be proud next New Year’s Eve when you retell the story of  201 5 and how 3 simple steps changed EVERYTHING!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
