Do Whatever It Takes to Make 2014 Great

Every year it’s the same thing. We make resolutions and then by January 15th they’re broken. Think how many people resolve to lose weight, to spend more quality time with family, or to increase income, achieve goals in their lives and careers on this night. Whatever your resolution is, understand that without discipline, massive action and a high level of commitment, it won’t stick. So simplify things! This year resolve to be disciplined. Resolve to do the tough things, the things others won’t do. Then you can apply that to everything you set out to accomplish in 2014.

Begin each day on a disciplined schedule that allows for no white space on your calendar and is filled with worthwhile actions. This is critical to keeping you focused. Remember, not all items on your schedule may be business related but they should all result in some sort of production! This could and should include spiritual, personal and physical development; improving relationships with family, friends and colleagues; volunteering; education; training and the like.

When you have a solid purpose — the bigger thing that drives you, discipline and commitment will follow. Pay attention to what must be done to serve that bigger goal. It’s your responsibility, duty and obligation to make success happen, so look at what changes are necessary in order to accomplish it. Maybe it’s adjusting your bedtime so you can be up earlier to workout. Maybe it’s taking a course or reading for 30 minutes per day. Make sure the things you do serve the bigger purpose. When they don’t, be disciplined enough to acknowledge it and make smart decisions from there.

Do you want to go through the motions of average and ordinary? Or do you want to start this year off with positivity, clear goals and the motivation required to make big extraordinary things happen for yourself?

Look at your space, your desk, your office and your home. Does it reflect a disciplined person who is on the path to greatness?

Are the people in your life respectful of your focus and drive or a threat to it? Handle them.

Are you honest and clear on what weakens your level of commitment?

Are you making excuses or allowances for a lack of production?

Think of the adjustments you must make and start off 2014 with the discipline to go for greatness in every aspect of your life.

Be great, nothing else pays.
