As you consider the year ahead and think of how you can better yourself to DO more and ACHIEVE more, I want to share 6 questions that may help you get the ball rolling. These questions are designed to stimulate your thinking about what's possible by making a few CHANGES. Get a notebook and pen and find a quiet place where you can spend a few minutes in deep thought. Ready?
Question 1. What is your "theme" for this year? Pick ONE WORD to represent what you want to go after this year. My one word is, Creation. Once you've picked the word write it on a post-it and stick it where the sun does shine so you can see it daily.
Question 2. What is one habit you could adopt this year that would make a significant impact on your life?
Question 3. What is one habit you could drop that would make a significant impact on your life?
Question 4. Imagine yourself at 90. Being that person, what advice would you give to the person you are in 2016?
Question 5. If you asked your best friend for one piece of advice about how you could improve your life, what would they say?
Question 6. How great is your life going to be this year? Visualize it first, then write it down. Be as descriptive as you can. Really feel it. This is also something you should keep in a highly visible place so you can be regularly reminded of how great this year is going to be.
If you really took the time to answer each one of these questions, congratulations. You've just coached yourself. Feels pretty good, doesn't it?
