It’s day 22 and today I’m looking at a key word that must go hand in hand with success and that word is RESULTS. Don’t you just love them? Results are like the weighing scale of your life. They never lie. You can walk past the mirror sideways, suck your tummy in as much as you want but at the end of the day you’ll have to face the fact that the numbers on the scale are just not adding up! Been there, done that and got the Grammy!
Results mirror what you’ve said you’re setting out to do. Results will reflect loudly and be the evidence of what you’re putting in and what you’re getting out. Remember the saying… “What is hidden in the dark will come to light”.? Well results help to illuminate that light for all to see.
As 2013 comes to an end it’s important to look back at your life and measure 3 thing…
1. The things that served you positively that should stay
2. The things that did you absolutely no good that need to go
3. The new things you need to add that can propel you forward
If you’re not taking stock of your wins and losses, you’re not learning and if you’re not learning, you’re not growing. If you’re not growing then… ‘Houston we have a problem!’
If you don’t know what works in your life and what doesn’t, there’s no way you’re going to be able to see any real sustainable change. You have to know where you are so you can improve on it. Sounds obvious? Not really. So many people live their lives going around in circles. They regurgitate the same activities, relationships, spending habits, health patterns, spiritual stance and expect to see overwhelming success. I’m a great believer in miracles but this mindset and behaviour even challenges my belief system!
So today the challenge is to measure your life results.
Ask yourself… What do I need to keep, change and add?
You can’t change what you don’t know. So I challenge you today. Be curious, answer the hard questions and make the necessary life giving choices.
See you tomorrow.
