It is time to count. Yep. It is black and white. It is not gray, it is not up for debate, it is not up to interpretation.
You have either made progress towards your goals or you haven’t. Do you remember back in December, btw: it was only 12 weeks or so ago. You made a decision to make changes in your life. It could have been in a variety of different areas you wanted to make changes. The ones that are most common can be found in a previous blog post here: http://wp.me/p4eY1f-cX
How are you tracking towards your 2015 goals and dreams? How much progress have you made? The good thing is that quarter 1 of 2015 is in the books and you are still here and you have three more quarters to win the game in 2015. So you can start today!
A fool is described as a person who acts unwisely or silly. So a person who is wise would be a person that is aware of what they are doing and is alert. If you haven’t made any progress towards your goals you set, be wise and decide today what changes you should have made but just haven’t for whatever reason.
When the Why gets stronger the How gets easier. Is your why strong enough? If you haven’t made any progress towards your goals your why must not be strong enough.
My advice for you is to go back to your goals? Oh, if you didn’t write them down, then shame on you. You have to write them down. If you have them written down already or you are now taking my advice and writing them down. Next to each one of them write down why this goal is important. Ex: I want to lose 10 pounds. Losing 10 pounds because your clothes don’t fit, is probably not a strong enough WHY. You can just buy new clothes. And guess what, most people will. They would rather do that than put in the hard work and discipline required to lose 10 pounds. Your Why should be centered around what it will mean for you personally when you lose 10 pounds. Maybe it is your blood pressure will be lower, which means you are healthier and you can play with your children. Or by losing 10 pounds, you will be more confident in your appearance that it will give you the confidence to change jobs and pursue that big opportunity you have been thinking about.
The first day of April is April fools day. My hope is you will look at today as the opportunity to be wise instead of being foolish. Being foolish means doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, or maybe that is insanity. Either way you have a choice to make today. You have three more quarters in 2015 to accomplish your goals and your dreams. Take inventory today and create a game place to ensure you accomplish those goals.
To your success and your future.
