New Year, New You! I Said “New Year – NEW YOU!”
We’re going to hear a lot of goal talking for the first few weeks and maybe even a couple of months for those more dedicated than others. We are going to hear more goal talking than we are going to see Goal Walking! It hasn’t been two weeks yet, not even 14 days and people are saying that they are giving up. It’s too much they say. I wanted to lose 20 pounds Shawn, but I can’t get up early enough in the morning to go to the gym.
Let me be the one to tell you that if you dare not to change, then you care not to change. Listen, there are people in your life you have to let go of this year, there are things in your life that you are going to have to let go of this year, if you want to get to that next level in life.
You are going to have to institute new practices if you want to get that book out of your head and into stores. If you want to finally open that business that you’ve been dreaming of for the last five years you’re going to have to make it a priority (#1), and you’re going to have to do some research (#2), and finally, and this is the BIG ONE, you’re going to have to INVEST some time and $ (#3)!
Let’s just be honest. I know I’m going to lose some people here, because they are just so anti-investment. We live in a wasteful, thing oriented world. We have a mind state that is pro thingamajig. What do I mean? I mean people have a 12 hundred dollar phone, want to get a better job, but do not invest in upgrading their skill set.
People want to save and make money, but do not invest in Financial Coaching to learn how to do so. Let’s be brutally honest, people want to leave their children in a better state when they leave here, but they do not even have life insurance unless it’s tied to a job that makes them sick, that they’d like nothing more than to trade in. What am I saying? Don’t get the next smart watch, BE SMART and invest in Wellness Coaching or Weight Watchers if you want to lose weight.
It’s really not as hard as we make it out to be. We are telling ourselves a story that is really more like a Horror Flick of Epic proportions. It’s the New Year, but in regards to opening your dream business you’re watching Halloween and Michael Myers is creeping around in your head, keeping you from taking action. Swinging his knife at your ideas about doing something for yourself!
I said Jason is chasing your weight loss, and gym joining ideas right out of your head, as if you’re going to die if you invest in yourself. Listen, if you keep doing what you did in 2018, 2020 is going to look like 2019, and that’s the same as 2018, 2017, and 2016 if you do not drastically STEP UP YOUR GAME!!
SO, let’s turn the tables on terror and take some serious steps to separate and distinguish ourselves from the pack of the mundane, let’s go Lone Wolf for a minute, and leave the company of sheep and the comfort of Lamb’s Wool, and let’s be definitive and make decisions that we are going to take action on, because after all APPLICATION IS KING!
This is your Coach, Shawn, and I don’t want your 2020 to look like your 2018. I want it to look like you do, deep, deep down inside. I want you to have that dream life, I want you to be your own boss, I want you to open your business, write your book, and TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE! I want you to get up when you say you’re going to, not because someone else is making the rules for you.
Listen, your Mother and Father used to wake you up for school when you were a child and tell you what to do and how, but you’re not a child anymore, so let’s step to our business, get our minds right for 2019, and make some serious changes! I told you I was going to press you and stretch you in the New Year, and trust me you haven’t seen anything yet!
Say Goodbye to your 2018 fear filled anxiety, and let’s say HELLO to the Brave New You!
