A great way to start the New Year is to decide that you want this year to be better than your last. It is about getting into the drivers seat and using your personal power to create a new perspective, unleash your potential, believe in new possibilities and fully commit to living a fulfilling life.
The New Year is the perfect time of year to reset your mindset. Resetting your mindset requires focus, commitment and taking inspired action to achieve your goals.
To quote from Benjamin Hardy, “Successful people make decisions based on where they want to be whereas unsuccessful people make decisions based on their current situation”.
Here are 3 steps to reset your mindset:
1. Life Overview
Write down every area of your life including career, family and friends, health, spiritual, finances, growth and contribution. Give each area of your life a score from 1 to 10 (1 – Needs improvement to 10 – Exceptional). Assess your life overview and decide on the areas where you need to focus your efforts to significantly improve that area of life. Use this free tool – the Wheel of Life.
