The way you start each day sets the tone for it, and likewise, the way you start your year sets the tone for the months ahead. What you have to determine is how you want your year to be and set the stage accordingly. How do you want your year to start? What are you creating in the coming year? Don’t let the way the last year started or ended up discourage you and above all, don’t beat yourself up about the things that you didn’t accomplish. Acknowledge the experience, what you learned from it and let it go so that you can move on.

Create the space you want to live from this coming year and fill it with what you need to move into and through it. Create your goals from the space of the experiences you want to have this year then get focused, commit to them and determine how you’re going to move forward. Start the year with focus and preparation. Sadly, only 8% of people actually achieve what they aim for every year. One reason they do is because of the tone they set at the beginning of it all.

The first 100 days of the year is a crucial period and your entire year rides on it. If you don’t prepare and set the tone and the stage for your year, what’s it going to look like? Will you be well on your way to the income that you want to make this year or another goal that you’ve set or will you be feeling like you didn’t get started right and wanting a do-over and have an excuse for why you haven’t started to forge the path toward the summit?

Excuses and regret aren’t going to cut it so it’s time to stop making them and let them go. Map out your first 100 days of the new year, make the commitment and dive in so deep that you can’t help but get the results you want. If you’ve never done this before, now is the time to start. If you want different results, you’ve got to do something different and take on new ways of being. Before you move on to something else, break out a pad of paper and take 10 minutes to think about what you want to create for the coming year; the experiences you want to have and how that might look. Then you’ll have a place to create your goals from. What will the first 100 days of 2016 look like for you?


The First 100 Days

ClockCalendar-GreenIn case you hadn’t noticed, the first quarter of the year came and left fairly quickly and April 10th was the 100 day mark. How did you start your year? Was it with solid goals and a plan to carry them out or with just the thoughts in your head about what you wanted to do? If it’s the latter, honestly, that’s the way that about 92% of people started their year; without any focus and or preparation. How you start your year sets the tone for what happens during the course of it, Even though we’re beyond the 100 day mark, you can do a course correction that changes where you’re going as well as the tone and energy that you operate within.

You’ve had days where you felt as though you got up on the wrong side of the bed or you find yourself saying that you want a “do-over”. Most times you are in that space because you’ve started your day on the wrong note, neglecting to create the space that allowed you to set the tone for your day.  We’ve all been there and we know exactly how that feels and we know exactly how those days go. The same is so with the first 100 days of the year.

If you didn’t start the year with intention and focus, you can use today to refocus and get things on track. Change the tone; shift the energy and create what you want to step into. That means getting focused on laying the ground work for what you want. What characteristics do you have to take on to make things happen?

Think about what you want to create; what feelings do you want to experience?  From there, create your goals…all the details and in writing. No cheating or shortcuts. This is your business and your life we’re talking about here so stop playing games. Commit yourself to what you create and then get your plan in writing with measurable results, milestones and start and finish dates.

Then look for the things that hinder you and hold you back and facing them. What kept you from doing this in the first place? Uncover the gremlins that might hold you back from movement. One of the biggest things that you have to is shift your mindset. Mindset is everything. Engage in practices that will continue to shore you up on a daily basis. You can’t just set course and then expect to be on point every day all day. If you haven’t done this, right now you need to pull out your journal or a sheet of paper and get crackin’.
