Remember those New Years Resolutions we all made about 120 hours ago?
You know the ones:
- I will devote “X” number of hours a day to my business.
- I will spend time every day on my personal development.
- I will transform my health by working out and eating a healthy diet.
I could go on…
New Years resolutions are always hard because one bad day (or bad minute!) can cause you to feel like you have failed and that feeling can lead people to give up.
We all have a limited amount of time here on earth and if you think that life isn’t a race, wait until you hand the keys to your car to your daughter when you could have sworn that just yesterday, you were holding her in your arms and rocking her to sleep.
Life is a race, but the good news is that life is not a sprint.
Accomplishing great things in life requires a series or good decisions every day. My coach and mentor, Bo Short always says that success is not just doing the right things. It’s doing enough of the right things.
So as we move into day 5 of the new year, do yourself a favor and focus on what you can accomplish. Look forward, not back. Pat yourself on the back for the good decisions you made over the last few days and work on the stuff that you can improve on.
Remember this, I am proud of the decision you made to make a difference in your life. You can do this. Yes, there will be struggle. Yes, life will throw you curveballs. But there is nothing you can not achieve.
Just a friendly reminder from your friend,
