Happy New Year

Time to celebrate another revolution of the Earth around the Sun. Another reason to think about self improvement and spend time with family. My advice - don't make any new goals just because it is a new year. I have never thought much of new year's resolutions, make resolutions because you want something or need change. Here are some things to think about while setting goals:

> One of the greatest realizations we can make in our life is that each of us has the ability to control our attitude and therefore control the external facets of our life. Once this is realized and pursued, the opportunities to get what we want will increase.

> Anger is a choice, happiness is a choice.

> Consider your situation by imagining that you are the Moon, looking down on all the things going on on Earth and everything you are going through. Perspective can help solve any problem.

> Learn to set a plan, but don't over plan. Do this by writing down your goals but if you start scheduling every hour of every day you will probably be setting up for discouragement.

Try asking these questions...
What changes do I need to make?
Why do I need these changes?
Where will I start?
How Will I reach my goal?
Who will help you?

Another lesson from Jack Lalanne:
10 - point plan for improvement

The question then becomes, how can we bypass the 'trial and error' phase and get to the root of our motivation?

The Level 6 Review can be an effective tool to dig through those initial thoughts and desires. It can help us understand what our motivations are and the circumstances that drive them.

It’s a simple exercise, in fact children are very good at it especially between the ages of 2 and 4. When you think of something you want, you ask why and answer the question, and keep asking why and finding answers at least six times. At first that might be all it takes, and as your ability to ask meaningful questions grows, you will learn to ask why and how in way…
