Right below are my insights and learnings from each month. Further down is the full list of my goals with monthly progress.
Hope it will inspire you. Feel free to leave a comment.
I returned from amazing three-and-half week holidays in the Philippines and had a bit of a late start. But, now I’m fully recharged and already going full speed ahead! I’ll be honest with you: I’ve missed working when I was on holidays. I love what I do. Not just coaching, but everything it takes to build a business. It’s frustrating at times and the lows can be low and dark, but the highs are above clouds!
Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life.
Due to a popular demand, and let’s be honest, the fact that I like to share my goals with you as it gives me a push and social accountability, I’ll continue sharing my monthly updates this year as well. It was really nice to get a bunch of emails and messages from you guys asking me about my 2018 goals and sharing how it inspired you to do something similar.
I’ve had several people asking me why I say: I will EASILY complete XYZ.
The reason for this is quite simple. It frames and conditions my goal pursuit with certain emotion I want to experience during it. This year I will be focusing on enjoying the process of achieving my goals. I want to have more fun and joy making this all happen.
It is now a default condition for me to find a way to enjoy the process as much as possible.
Because, at the end of the day, that’s what life is all about, isn’t it?
Not necessarily just because of my own growth, but because of the people I’ve met, amazing new clients who started working with me, and the results my clients have had. All these inspiring people had one thing in common (which is really what inspires me the most).
Consistency, consistency, consistency.
You may think it’s an old song, but it’s the most important factor in achieving something remarkable.
worthy of attention; striking
I have not met one accomplished person who would not be consistent in their efforts for a long time, often for years. It doesn’t matter if you want a great body, career success, build a business, amazing relationship, achieve mastery in arts, music, or science if you are not consistent in your efforts, you won’t get there.
I know how hard it can sometimes be (quite often frankly). It’s Sunday 10 pm and I’m writing this post because I want to be consistent with it. There are dozens of other things I could and perhaps want to be doing. Yet I’m choosing to do this because I know how important it is.
March has been a very busy month for me.
I’ve started working with several new amazing clients where I almost reached my full capacity. I’ve also leaned fully into the writing of my book where I got over the initial hump and now the content is just pouring out. I’m really enjoying it and although I’m just about half-way through I’m very excited for it to be published in a few months time. All this has been possible only by prioritising it which led to a slower progress on some other goals. But that’s how it is. We only have so many hours in the day so something has to give in order to accommodate something more important.
This, as well as very impressive results my clients achieved, have reminded me how important is to fully commit to our goals.
Your results are directly proportional to your commitment to them.
There is a massive difference between wanting something and getting it no matter what.
The first level of commitment will get you the results as longs as nothing major stands in the way.
The second level of commitment will keep you working on it until you get it.
Stop messing around, and give it what it deserves.
