Look Back. Move Forward.

“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.” – Benjamin Franklin 

Picture This . . .

It is December 31, 2015.

You are having dinner with your family.

The discussion turns to 2015.

Wow!  What a year.

2015 was one of your most successful years ever.

  • What did you achieve?
  • What obstacles did you overcome?
  • What comfort zone did you leave?
  • What did you accomplish?
  • What new skills did you develop?
  • What risks did you take?
  • What books did you read?
  • What people did you meet?
  • What new places did you explore?
  • What bad habits did you break?
  • What positive habits did you START?
  • What goals did you reach?
  • What limits did you destroy?

Each new year starts with promise and hope.

It’s an opportunity to start fresh.  It’s a chance to begin again.

Seize this opportunity.

  • Stop and reflect.
  • Be GRATEFUL for all your blessings.
  • Acknowledge what you need to change.
  • Find the courage to take the 1st step.
  • Take action.

RESOLUTION QUESTION:  How will 2015 be different for you?

What’s holding you back from having a BREAK OUT 2015?

Only 3 things are in your way:

  • Your EGO.
  • Your HABITS.
  • Your FEAR.

Jon Acuff wrote to succeed you must, “Punch fear in the face.”

Come out of the gates on January 1, 2015 swinging.

In 2015, you will:

  • Take that trip.
  • Donate to that charity.
  • Lose that weight.
  • DECLUTTER your life.
  • Take on that new challenge.
  • Show your GRATITUDE.
  • Reconnect with old friends.
  • Be more EMPATHETIC.
  • Grow your business.
  • Ask more questions.
  • Be less judgemental.
  • Do work that matters.
  • Create awesome memories.

Make 2015 one of the defining years of your life.

  • Take risks.
  • Celebrate your failures.
  • Embrace each victory.

Make 2015 the year you said farewell to AVERAGE and rang in REMARKABLE.
