In this post, I wanted to share with you a few ideas from my coaching experience that will help ensure your ability to realize your full potential.
You see, for most of my adult life I’ve pursued what I consider to be the organizing principles of lasting change.
And, I do believe that the best things in life are free, and that the best strategies in life are simple. By that I mean, simple to understand, apply, teach and share with others.
The following three strategies are simple, and they are also extremely powerful, however, they require consistent and skillful application in order for your personal strategic plan to become reality.
These are the exact same changes that an individual must make in order to create personal change, that a company must make in order to create a lasting competitive advantage, and that a community must make in order to best serve its citizens.
Step One – Raise Your Standards
Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards.
Simply put you MUST expect and demand more from yourself and from those around you. That means having zero tolerance for mediocrity, procrastination, and any behavior that robs you of potential and increased performance.
If you have the courage to expect and demand more from yourself, you will become the change you desire.
Step Two – Change Your Limiting Beliefs
If you raise your standards but don’t really believe you can meet them, than you’ve already sabotaged yourself. This is one of the biggest challenges people face when constructing their personal plan.
Why? Because you won’t even try; you’ll be lacking that sense of certainty that allows you to tap the deepest capacity that’s within you even as you read these words.
Without taking control of your belief systems, you can raise your standards as much as you like, but you’ll never have the conviction to back them up.
Step Three – Change Your Strategy
In order to keep your commitment, you need the best strategies for achieving results. One of my core beliefs is that if you set a higher standard, and you can get yourself to believe, then you certainly can figure out the strategies. You simply will find a way.
I can tell you with confidence that the absolute best strategy in almost any case is to find a role-model, someone who’s already getting the results you want, and then tap into their knowledge.
TODAY is an important date for a two reasons:
#1 – It provides you an opportunity to redeem yourself and set goals to “start fast and finish strong”.
#2 – It represents the turning point in your life!
In fact, I’ll go so far as to say that outside of your wedding day and the birth of your children, the start of this program may very well prove to be the most important day of your life.
It will come to symbolize, the day you took control of your destiny.
The 100 Day Challenge is an extreme performance workout, because it’s all about getting things done, and getting massive results quickly with a bang!
I’ve seen it, I am doing it!, and it’s an amazing piece of work. It drives accountability and focus, but you don’t have to take my word for it.
For more than twenty years, Gary has worked with executives at Fortune 500 Companies, with Olympic Athletes, and high-performing people from every conceivable occupation teaching them exactly how accelerate their performance and overall results.
Listen. I’m so impressed with the 100 Day Challenge that I am participating in the program myself and expect to have the best 100 days of my life!
I think it’s a no brainer, and if are serious about changing your life FOREVER!
To your success,
P.S. Let’s do this together.
