Is 2018 Going to Be the Same Last Year?

Are You Any Different?

Perhaps you have goals you’ve been thinking about for a while such as losing weight, improving a relationship, or changing your job. Maybe you’ve been thinking about really dedicating time to your business for a while but you’ve been putting it off. Or….you’ve already got yourself in a consistent routine, you are now just hoping for consistent positive results.

To achieve your goals in 2018, you must be different than you were last year and approach your goals with another mindset.  I understand that is never what people want to hear, but it is the truth.   I think it was Einstein that said “Ignorance at its highest level is to do what you have always done, the way you have always done it and expecting different results”

The truth is 2017 was a good year for you and you want to stay on that path, or it wasn’t.  If it wasn’t, what are YOU going to do about it?   Not the government, or the politicians, or your company, or even your upline, what are YOU going to do about it?

Are you any different than you were twelve months ago? Have you become more confident, committed, persistent, inspired, or motivated? Are you stronger in character, more committed to your vision? If so, build upon these qualities to propel you toward your goals.

If not, ask yourself the right questions:  The quality of our life is in direct proportion to the quality of questions we ask ourselves and then answer them … TRUTHFULLY.
How can I be more inspired to do what I know to do?
What will motivate me to move forward?
What is my personal vision for 2018?
What really motivates me to move forward?

The key to finally achieving the goals you’ve been talking about is to set yourself up to win. You may need to set it up small enough that it’s achievable. By seeing positive results, you’ll start to feel better about yourself and more inspired to move forward. Acknowledge yourself for your positive qualities and successes along the way.


The more you start to create a success track record with yourself, the greater the momentum will be and more results you will see.  In network marketing more than any other business model, they thing to get excited about is your ability to do consistently do the activities that need to be done.   Honestly the results don’t count.   The results always come with consistent activity.   

“Consistent effort doesn’t always create consistent results, but it ALWAYS creates Success”

Another key is to make it fun if you need to. Viewing your goal as something you should do or have to do actually zaps your energy and motivation. How can you make it fun this year?  I am a big believer in weekly progress reports.  My experience has proven to me that many like to compete with other people, but those  that learn how to consistently compete with themselves are the biggest winners.

So make competing with YOURSELF fun.

People often view goals as all or nothing. I will either improve my relationship or not. Make more money or not. Get organized or not. It’s okay to take 3 steps forward and 2 steps back as long as you are moving forward. Once you start to move forward, the speed will pick up and you’ll have less and less setbacks. It’s okay to have setbacks from time to time. Give yourself permission fall and get back up  staying focused on your WHY!

What is your vision? What are the benefits of achieving your goal? Pick things that really matter. Remind yourself over and over about these benefits. The vision has to be more compelling than your circumstances. If not, you probably won’t achieve your goals. Spend time really getting in touch with and connecting to what the real benefit is and what it is you’re trying to do. What do you really want?

In short, to make this year different:
1) Use or develop special qualities you need to achieve your goals

2) Set yourself up to win

3) Make it fun

4) Don’t view it as all or nothing

5) Get in touch with your vision    “Until you know WHY, the HOW doesn’t matter”

Doing these things will make this year different and a lot more fulfilling. Yes, it’s time to move forward with your goals, improve your job, health or relationships in 2018.   

Where will you be in 5 years if you approach this year like you did last year?

Time is the most precious asset we all have.  I don’t want to waste 5 minutes of a day.  Really,  unless time is scheduled to chill and relax I want to be doing something that is has the potential to make a positive impact for myself or someone else.   

I am fascinated when what lights someones fire.  What flips their switch.   I have seen it happen for different people at different times over the best 35 plus years.     “Successful people are willing to do for a short period of time, what most people aren’t so they can do for the rest of their life what most people can’t”.   Is this your year?  Is this your time?  You and only you, determine that!    

I learned a long time ago, the only people I can truly impact, inspire, or make a difference for are those that have ALREADY DECIDED to not be normal.   If you are reading this article there is a good chance I am talking about you, so make 2018 an awesome year!
