Many people had a rough year. Hashtags wishing 2016 ‘Bon Voyage’ have regularly trended the past few weeks. Instead of thinking of 2016 as a year of loss, try to think of 2016 as a year of refinement.
Friends, family, money, and business may have been lost in the fire, but what remains has been purified. Who and what stuck by you this year should have your undivided attention.
Mourning loss is natural and has it’s place. However, never get stuck there. Channel that negative thought, negative emotion, negative energy into laser sharp focus on what remained in 2016.
Then apply the “Three Life Rule”.
- If you don’t go after what you want you’ll never have it.
You have to “go”. This is an action people. You’ve dreamed, you’ve read, you’ve researched, now GO! Actively make some moves. Did you write your business plan? Did you call that guy/girl you like? Did you download that recipe you’ve been staring at? GO!
2. If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no.
When is the last time you asked for something you truly wanted? I mean something you just assumed is going to be a “No”. Did you feel better when you had the answer (good or bad). Going to take a huge guess here and say, that even if the answer was “NO” just knowing the answer resolved some stress. Ask for what you want! If the answer is “no” find out why. If the answer is “yes”. Awesome!
3. If you don’t step forward, you will always be in the same place.
Surprise! No movement=no movement. Take a look at your goal, break it down into a very small piece. Now even smaller. Now one more time. Now you have this teeny, tiny task to do. Write for 10 minutes, run for 2 minutes, clean for 3 minutes. Just get started and you will be surprised how accomplished you feel moving forward.
