WHAT DO YOU DO TO MAKE THE NEW YEAR SUCCESSFUL? RESOLUTIONS? GOALS?
What about creating your very own mantra?
Chris Brogan does every year. He takes 3 words and makes them his drivers for the year.
The concept is truly incredible. (Please click here to see Chris’ 3 words and read his article, its really good)
The economy has really cranked up and it looks like the job market is beginning to turn around. Things are fun and interesting and tenuous and scary all bundled into one. In honor of that, the 3 words I chose for 2014 are Support More Success.
Look for opportunities to help others reach and exceed their goals…starting with my wife. Give away help and connect people to get them closer to what they want/need. Do this without any expectation for reciprocation or “in order to”. Live this year with the belief that there is more than enough to go around. But doing this, I will focus on the things I really want to do. Make working more like play…just have fun helping others.
MORE – (REPEAT FROM LAST YEAR CAUSE IT WAS SO AWESOME)
Ensure that there is more than enough to go around. There are always enough pie for everyone. That goes for my wife, business, friends, time and my community. Looking to develop business opportunities that involve my great network (and all those new friends that I have “created”). Focus time to make more relationships that are lasting, full of joy and mutually beneficial. Be more to my wife and partner. Allowing her to have the more she couldn’t before.
Take risks to exceed my goals. Not stupid risks, but step out to make the things I and others want a reality. Reach out to people in every corner to make sure that the lofty goals for myself and others are met. Don’t worry so much about what others think about me or what I am doing, just do. Talk less, listen more, and seek out success. Avoid lingering or wallowing in what doesn’t work or what could have been. Be enthusiasm for others success. Laugh a lot because that’s what successful people do!
So for this year, I want to support more success in every aspect of my life. Expanding opportunities for others, growing friendships and striving making the world a better place in every action I take. The only thing that its missing is an awesome theme song!
I’d love to hear your 3 words for the year or hear about your BHAG for 2014.
