In all of my inspirational key notes I often share with the crowd a message to try some thing new that you didn't already do. I meet so many extraordinary people that just can't seem to break through their ceiling of complexity. They are so busy being busy but when you really look at their actions they are simply the result of bad habits cultivated over time. Getting from where you are to where you want to be is not about doing things, but rather doing the RIGHT things right all the time.
It's far to easy to avoid doing the simple things, we see it all the time. It's far to easy to hit the snooze alarm and get that extra 1 hour of sleep right? But it's the successful people that truly get comfortable with doing the uncomfortable. For the past 5 years, I made a concious choice to cultivate new and amazing success habits. My greatest one is my hour of power - it starts at 5:00am and it rocks my entire day. It's what has propelled me to write and publish 13 books, create a global magazine and inspire everyday people to be and do extraordinary things.
It's far to easy to lay on a couch and watch 2 hours of mind-numbing TV with your spouse thinking that this action is connecting you. A great success habit would be to shut off the boob tube and read 10 pages from a personal development book then share your insights with one another over a glass of really great red wine.
Look at your life today and make a list of all of your actions and next to it add the amount of time you spend performing that act. Next, make a least of your top 3 goals that you want to acheive over the next 12 months. Compare your daily actions with those goals. Be REAL, are those actions aligned with those goals? Are they truly moving you up in your pursuit of the success you deserve and desire? More importantly, are those actions making you happy?
