“What got you here won’t get you there.”

The year will be over before you know it.

Woof.

So I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting, and encourage you to join me...start with this:

Let’s think back to one year ago…

  1. Where were you?

  2. Who were you?

  3. What has changed?

  4. What hasn't changed?

  5. And because of that... Where are you now?

Tough questions, I know.

Now the purpose of this is to not have you dwell on the past but to start looking towards the future.

So think ahead now to a year from now...

  1. Where do you want to be?

  2. What do you have to do?

  3. Who do you have to be?

  4. What has to happen to fill the gap between today and then to get you to the promised land?

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over this past year with the help of my coach, Craig Ballantyne it is the following:

"To get something you've never had, you must do something you've never done."

In other words...

“What got you here won’t get you there.”

This is not an easy thing to do. We just want the end result, we’re not interested in change. Sure we may say we’re ok with it, but when push comes to shove we often drag or feet, say we’ll start tomorrow, or think, “that will never work for me...I’m too old, young, male, female, rich, poor, busy, bald, fill in lame excuse here.”

That means embracing the scary, the challenging, the downright hard.

This means sucking hard at something for weeks, months or even years at a time before you ever get the positive reinforcement and accolades you crave.

That’s gaining new skills, and being open to new lessons and teachers.

This year many of us will set audacious goals for next year. And like most, we won’t achieve them, because we’re married to an old version of who we are. And this old version of us, won’t get us to where we want to be in the future..

Read the first quote above again…”To get something you’ve never had, you must do something you’ve never done.”

WHAT SKILLS AND ABILITIES DO YOU NEED TO HUNT DOWN, AND START?

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO START IN ORDER TO BE WHERE YOU WANT TO BE?

WHO DO YOU NEED TO LEARN FROM?

What activities and old habits do you need to say adios to this year, so you can live that big vision you have for your family, life, and business.

What people do you need to separate yourself from so you can live your bigger life?

Out with the old. In with the new.
