Thank you for tuning into Live Life With Purpose. It’s a new year and I hope your 2015 is off to a great start! I also know you have a lot of awesome goals that you want to accomplish this year, and are well on your way to making them happen.
But, what if I told you a key ingredient that will not only help you reach your goals, but will allow you to be more effective with your goals, will help you accomplish more, and will help you achieve your goals faster?
You need more people to help you be more effective in 2015.
I don’t care how awesome you are, you need to surround yourself with other awesome people to be even more awesome. Incorporate more people than yourself and watch as greatness grows. You don’t have all the answers, so it’s time to start seeing where you could use some help.
Do you want to take your relationships to the next level? Be intentional and sit down at the beginning of each month and see what days work out for you to hang out with people. You can make it consistent by making it the same dates every month. This will make you even more intentional with relationships.
Whatever it is that you want to accomplish in 2015, the resources available to us now are far greater than any other generation before us has encountered. Also, see that every solution I offered you won’t cost you a penny. All of these tasks I gave involve content or services from asking questions to other people, but it is all free!
Too many times people want to offer services that will cost you an arm and a leg, but there are better answers to your current circumstances than throwing money at it. You can work towards your dreams right now, even if you don’t have the resources to invest right now. Stop using that excuse in 2015, and start gathering the information you need from others to succeed.
Sure, I offer a coaching program to people who need more of a push in their lives to reach their goals faster, but the one thing I spend almost all of my time trying to teach people to instill in their lives is self-discipline. I find that people seek out every answer to life, only to find out somewhere down the road that the responsibility always falls back on them.
But, I also love seeing when people get serious enough about their lives that they will reach out and do whatever it takes to reach their definition of success. It sometimes helps people to get serious about life when they make an monetary investment, so they can stay accountable in that way. When people get serious about their lives, it is about whatever works.
Yes, if you need that extra push, accountability, and a think tank, then coaching may be a great option for you. But, the most important characteristic you can hold onto is drive, heart, self-discipline, and motivation. This means that your progress is in your hands and your hands alone, but the smart thing remains to enlist help from others. If there’s help available, then by all means, take it. No matter how smart you are, you don’t have all the answers. You can and will be better when you take life on together, rather than separate. Don’t isolate yourself when it comes to improvement. People want to see you succeed, myself included.
Let’s decide right now to make this our best year yet. Here’s to an amazing 2015. Let us begin with being teachable and receiving help from others, today.
