Will 2015 Be Your Best Year Yet?

What one achievement would make 2015 your best year yet?

That has always been one of my favourite questions.
A question that brings everything into perspective and helps me to focus.
There are so many things worthy of achievement, many goals, hopes and dreams.

But if you could only choose only one?
If that one thing would contribute to making this year one of your best yet, What would it be?

Take some time to think about this question, it is a question that could change your life.

Write it down.

Writing down your goals can help you to achieve them.

Not only will writing down your goals help you to commit to them and perhaps think about them a little more often. Writing your goals commits them to your subconscious brain. Your subconscious mind is working away in the background helping to identify opportunities which will help you to attain your goals.


Your brain has a filter called the R.A.S or Reticular Activating System. The Reticular Activating System is responsible for Arousal and Alert. It’s the filter that wakes you up when your baby cries during the night. It’s the filter that helps you to distinguish your flight number above all others when you are waiting at the airport. It has also enabled you to see dozens of the same model of your new car in the same colour just after you pull out of the showroom. Not that there weren’t hundreds of them driving around before you bought it but now your filter is open to it.

Writing down your goals opens your R.A.S to your goals. It alerts you when something relevant comes your way and will always be watching out even when you are not.

Get out of Your Own Way

But please get out of your own way. It’s no good writing down your goals and then doing everything but what you need to do! And surprising as it may seem self sabotage is a major reason for goal failure. We all do it, we say we want to loose weight and in the same breath buy a McDonalds. We want to get fit but we are scared we will fail again so we do everything in our power to sabotage our success. It wasn’t going to work anyway. New Year’s resolutions never work!

New Year’s Resolutions Do Work

New Year’s Resolutions Work for Some people. Who are these people and what do they do differently?

They Commit
They commit and write down what they want to change.

They Believe
They believe in their personal power to achieve whatever it is they want.

They Act
They don’t sit back and wait for life to come to them, they figure out what they need to do and go out and do it.

They Form Habits
They understand that in order to achieve greatness, it involves small daily actions. Small repetitive behaviours that all add up to give you the amazing results that you want.

If you want to write a book, you need to create the habit of writing.
If you would like to run a marathon, you need to foster the habit of running.
If you want to loose weight, you will succeed with the habit of eating healthy.

Most things in life can be reduced to a small daily habit, even making money. If you are self employed and want to earn more money, a daily habit of connecting with sales prospects is going to increase your leads and increase your bottom line.

If you want to create better relationships, a daily habit of focusing on that person and their needs will help you attain it.

Breaking all of your goals down into daily habits will help you to achieve everything you want in life.
