I wanted to share this grand view with you today. You’re life should be an epic exciting adventure. If you haven’t found your passion for life or what makes you tick, take a few minutes today and assess your life. Determine your strengths and weaknesses and outline your course.

There’s truly no time to waste. Everyday is a gift. Realize this incredible truth. You were put here to do great things. I hope this message encourages you to reevaluate your life. Any and every level of hard earned success is a destiny. Seize yours!

Keeping on Track with Goals

If you’re like me, you’ve got a variety of goals in various categories. It’s difficult to juggle more than one goal. Success finds itself in many areas of life.

Keeping on track is the tricky part. I’ve found a nice planner that is blank for dates and allows you to start on any day is the best bet for daily tasks. Many planners out there have sections for three month and yearly planning along with sections to dissect how your plans are progressing. I’m a big fan of the Clever Fox planners because they allow you to do goal planning and map out weekly priorities and tasks.

Do take time to re-evaluate your goals on a regular basis. Review different areas of your life such as health and fitness, business and career, family and friends, relationships, personal development, finance, recreation and fun. These areas should be assessed monthly to see where you need to put in extra time. Don’t neglect one area of your life solely for another. It’s important to keep balance.

Find time to initially map out your goals and plans. Use a daily planner to keep on track with weekly and monthly tasks. Keep a separate notebook to evaluate how your goals are progressing and which areas of your life require more time and improvement.

Once you make it a habit to keep track of your plans, you’ll be able to see how much progress you’ve made. It can be very rewarding to see all the wins and exciting as you close in your goals. Seeing your plans written down can definitely help you keep in track.

New Year or New Day

Every day gives you the opportunity to completely start fresh. It doesn’t have to be New Year’s Eve or a special day to declare your new goals and begin again.

Each year we’re filled with a set of cumulative new days which we can formulate at anytime into a life goal or plan.

It’s never too late or the wrong time to start something. You’re never too old, tired, inexperienced or unable to begin. Realize each day is a blessing and holds an opportunity to try. Dare to be bold and brave. See beyond your comfort zone. Look deep within to find a new path and start walking.

I encourage you to set aside some time and reevaluate your current goals and see if they still align with your values and life purpose. If not change them. Don’t be afraid and stick with old plans you’ve outgrown. Be honest and assess the direction you truly desire to go. Never get stuck with an old set of plans because they feel comfortable.

Invest in yourself daily. Even if you’re completely changing course, change today. Don’t wait to start what you can’t stop thinking about. Give a lot of yourself and you will quickly see the return.

Fill Up Your Mind

How is your day going? Is it a productive day where you’re accomplishing tasks and beginning a new project? Maybe it’s a brainstorming day. Perhaps you’re in the process of beginning a new venture or relaxing. Wherever you’re at, I encourage you to take a moment and fill up your mind.

What do I mean by fill up your mind? Your mind is an incredible machine. No matter how modern science tries to assess the mind, they simply can’t because it’s the most amazing invention that exists. Use this invention to your advantage. Fill up your mind with thoughts that advance you.

It’s easy to get lost in everything that’s going wrong. Don’t let that seep into the crevices of your mind. Fill your mind instead with positivity, prosperity, possibility and good thoughts. Replace any negative thought on your radar with something good. Repeat positive affirmations such as: I am healthy, capable and abundant.

If you spend a short amount of time today listening to the negative defeatist chatter bustling about in your mind, you’ll see the benefit of replacing those thoughts immediately. It’s absolutely free to fill up your mind with good thoughts and the benefits are good too. Get in the habit of noticing your thoughts and filling up your mind with positive life affirming thoughts.

The only thing worth filling up besides your gas tank is your mind. Neither run on empty.

A Journey in Bravery

At certain points in life we really have to dig in deep and become brave. It’s easy to be complacent and let fear immobilize us at times.

Being brave doesn’t require much but a little bit of change and change can feel very uncomfortable. Being brave isn’t about adapting a warrior attitude or winning battles. It’s simple a journey in which at some turning point you decide to be brave. You do something outside your comfort zone and it scares you but changes you.

If you want new results, adopt this method of bravery. Try something that will change your life in a new direction.

Remember, nothing is easy. Even sitting back and doing nothing has its price. The struggle is in the learning. The reward is the lesson. Be brave in your journey and learn from your bravery.

Live to Learn

Life is a series of lessons. The same can be said of success. It’s not easy when you don’t have a manual, guide book or teacher. Sometimes you simply have to show up and let life guide you to learn from it.

Never be so afraid to learn from life that you neglect to live. It’s imperative you pay close attention and align your goals and direction in accordance with a few of life’s lessons.

Don’t get stuck on failure. There is no real difference in life lessons between an A and a F just a perceived difference. The final grade doesn’t matter most of the time. Showing up for class matters all of the time.

If you have no teacher, learn the lessons to the best of your ability. If you’re fortunate to have a mentor, appreciate the time they put into your life.

Never spend too long focusing on the should haves and would haves, you aren’t meant to be perfect or you’d have all the answers from the beginning. Keep going and living to learn. Whether a new subject or language, the act of learning assists you in life.

Whether you’ve recently learned the hard way or not, adjust your sails and stay on course. Develop a passion for living and you will find a clear cut passion in life that leads to success. Share your zest for life with others. Determine your direction and let the subtle lessons we learn here help strengthen your course. Never let one or many defeats completely stop you in your tracks.

Keep learning and going after life, even if you simply live for your goals. Be accepting of failures, rejections and tough terrain. They teach us. Be surprised and grateful for blessings and success. Life is a journey best traveled by living for its marvelous and wondrous teachings.

Examine the Reflection

Look in the mirror and you’ll find your biggest competitor. Examine the reflection and aim to fix the inside not the outside.

The only thing permanent is you. Inside of you, that’s where the magic truly happens. Outside of your reflection is simply a big comparison screen with everyone else.

There is peace, hope and possibilities inside yourself. There are answers and opportunities waiting in this world for you.

Never give up. There is real promise in dreaming about those things truly worth having.

Core values are essentially inside of you. They’re at your core. Look within and fix that beautiful reflection so it matches the outside and is visible for all to see. When you put the abundance, ability and hope within you on display for this world, you will attract that which you seek.

Be Willing to Walk Alone

It can be a long lonely walk to success. It can be a short one. No one gets there if they’re not willing to walk alone.

You’ve got to be willing to go after your dreams all alone. Sometimes when we share our hopes and dreams, we meet negativity from other people. They don’t need or want us to succeed. They’re comfortable in life and don’t see a need for change. You can’t expect the support of other people.

If your dream is worth it, you’ll find a way. With or without help, two key ingredients make up a victory. Longevity and belief will get you to the finish line.

No one gets overnight success. You’ve got to be in it for the long haul. Look past the rejections and failures but don’t stop until you achieve your goal. It might take a little while longer. It might take forever. Determine you’re staying with your goal.

Next up, have solid belief in yourself. Even if no one is there to support and encourage you, act as if it’s truly possible. You may be the only support on the way to your dream.

Keep going with whatever you start. Adopt a mindset that stays on your goals. No matter the circumstances, you’ll be able to smile when you count the small victories and really marvel at your accomplishments knowing you put in everything. Every goal starts and ends with your own thinking.

Don’t Let Doubt and Fear Keep You from Trying

Doubt and fear are the two enemies you can’t afford to rob you. Never let doubt or fear keep you from trying.

They say you have nothing to lose by trying and I believe that’s partly true. When you try, you lose only your own doubts. Even if you get nothing in return, you’ll have accomplished something unexpected. You’ll have surprised yourself by stepping out of unfamiliar territory and attempting something new.

Unfortunately, fear and doubt stop us from even starting. Overwhelming beliefs we’re not good enough, unskilled or unable can literally stop us in our tracks. Don’t let this be your story.

In order to find your true path, you must learn to search within yourself and erase doubt and fear. If the life you’re currently living isn’t what you truly envision for yourself, then you must build up your confidence.

Doubt and fear will weigh you down. Keep them in check. It’s not easy. Once you see how these feelings operate to keep you stagnant, you might want to feel the fear but try anyways. Erase the doubt and fear chatter in your mind for a minute and see what might be possible and go for it.

Stray from a Mass Manufactured Life

In order to achieve real lasting success you have a definitive choice in life. You can allow your life to be directed by popular role models but you may find your life is robbed. If you copy someone else’s life you are eventually living their life not yours in some manner. While role models are good, sometimes they’re only good at modeling a life- their own.

Instead, you must opt to find your own path. Seek it out and create a life of your own design. Think your way to a new life. Only you can do that and what excitement, wonder, greatness and passion it can bring to you and the whole world when you make this choice.

Real lasting success begins by building a life and straying from a mass manufactured life filled with following people, the latest trends and fads.

Let not your own life be robbed by living a carbon copy lifestyle. Be bold and brave and design a real life free from emulation that defines and changes the world. Take back your power from mass ideas and let your individualism shine and inspire others.
