“Sometimes we may ask God for success, and He gives us physical and mental stamina. We might plead for prosperity, and we receive enlarged perspective and increased patience, or we petition for growth and are blessed with the gift of grace. He may bestow upon us conviction and confidence as we strive to achieve worthy goals.” ~ David A. Bednar

This is something of a BAD news, GOOD news story…

The bad news is that 80% of all resolutions fail by the second week of February.

Around 50% bite the dust by January 12th.

The good news is that you can turn THIS year into your best year ever by simply putting more RESOLVE in your resolutions!

There is no reason for you to work your tail off and still come up short this year.

But to do it, you will need to take a slightly different approach, and employ a more consistent course of action.

We are all creatures of habit…

The truth is, habits you created 1-5-10-20 years ago are controlling your life today. This is as obvious as it is scientifically documented.

Even more obvious is that it is hard to break old habits, especially when it comes to health, fitness, weight loss, career choices, relationships, financial security, etc.

Hard, but hardly impossible.

You need a reason… a big WHY… to trigger positive new habits that will put tremendous resolve in your resolutions, turning them into goals that you can accomplish. You also need a system to support you.

This is the stem of the problem you face.

As performance experts, we study the cause and effect of virtually everything, looking for patterns that will help people achieve up to their full potential and accomplish their greatest visions and goals.

Over the years, through our measurable, sequential, systematic approach to performance excellence, we have generated hundreds of millions of data points that show precisely how folks, just like you, are doing… your strengths… limitations… and what you must do differently to live a life of happiness, satisfaction and significance.

In fact, we created an entire program around teaching people how to find the starting point for their best life now. It is called Success On Purpose and is available on sale now.

We have found that the prime REASON people fail to achieve their dreams and goals comes down to just 4 words: Clarity… Conviction… Commitment… and Courage…

Think about it. You wrap up the old year resolving to make next year better.

You want a better life… better health… better career… better relationships… more money… the list is endless.

So, you make a big declaration that THIS YEAR IS YOUR YEAR… YOU OWN IT…

You sign up for an exercise program… buy a workout machine… vow to take some new classes to retool your skills.

But then, old habits sabotage your dreams, and nothing much changes.

WHY?

Because you simply lack the 4 C’s of enduring success: Clarity… Conviction… Commitment… and Courage.

It will be one, two, three, or all four of these words that stand between you and what you want to see happen in the coming year.

Again, this is not just opinion, our giant database proves this unconditionally. In fact, to help you fully understand the importance of this idea we have provided you with access to The Three Variables and The Truth Chapter of Success on Purpose. Click Here to Review…

If you are committed to making next year better than last year you will see what you must do to make it happen.

Investing 10 minutes now may well save you a year of struggles and heartbreaks.

As you look forward to the new year, please keep this in mind…

1) Without Clarity, your dreams have no definition — which makes them an impossible target to hit!  We have found, in survey after survey, that people who clearly identify and schedule key milestones and objectives have a much higher probability of success than people who just want or need to change something.

Take fitness for example. Going to the gym is a great start. Putting healthier food in your body is essential.

But the key is to eat less and move more… and create deadlines for seeing the results of your efforts. Maybe your resolution is to lose body fat this year. 95% of people with that hope end up heavier in a year than when they start (because we naturally gain weight as we age.)

If you put this resolution in your schedule each month, along with a clear reason why, you have just improved your odds by 95%. Try it. Put this in your schedule for March 31st, June 30th, September 30, and December 1st of next year: “WOW, I am 5 pounds healthier than just a few months ago!” Better health is the goal… becoming fit is the process.

Yes, Clarity is King.

2) Because Clarity leads to Conviction — a super clear vision of the year ahead will help you arrive at the conviction that what you are about to do is the right thing for you to be doing. Do the wrong things, for the wrong reasons, in the wrong way and you will fail to achieve your goals.

Which, of course, is why you must set goals that ignite your spirit and inspire you to follow through on your plans. It is the conviction born from clarity that gives you the physical, mental, and emotional energy to plow ahead in face of all the natural obstacles you encounter from here and now all the way out to there and then. Take a moment to focus on the above video, take a breath and just THINK about your circumstances. You will see what we mean.

No question, Conviction is Queen.

3) Because Conviction leads to Commitment — with the conviction that you are about to do the right things, for the right reasons, in the right way, you move from a state of habitual running in circles to the commitment to schedule your success into your calendar.

If your goals do not appear as entries into your schedule for January… March… June… September… and next December, what happens?

Out of sight, out of mind, and lacking commitment, your goals simply vanish into the mist of time… maybe to resurface next year.

Again, it is axiomatic. No Commitment no achievement.

4) Because Commitment leads to Courage — the courage to take bold action day in and day out. Change in life takes real courage to face each day and plow ahead.

It takes courage to build a team of people around you to support your goals…

It takes courage to take action to resolve issues rather than procrastinate…

It takes courage to make essential changes to make your life work better.

Always remember, courage is as courage does. You can have clarity of goals… conviction that they are the right thing for you to pursue… and real commitment to the dream. BUT, until you have the courage to take that first step into the unknown… nothing happens and regrets take the place of resolutions.

Now, it’s time for some truly GREAT news!

Early in this article I made the bold statement that we are all creatures of habit. This is one of those truths for which there are no exceptions!

Experts will tell you that there is no way to actually change a habit. They are there in the back of your mind working 24x7x365… either for you or against you.

What you can do is create a new habit that provides a greater positive effect on your life, and over time, it will become dominate — eclipsing the old habit that is getting you nowhere.

Which is why we created The Time Prism!

 

Ours is brain training and skill building engineered on the timeless principals of practice and drill, spaced repetition, conditioned/response, habit building, and structured sequential memory reinforcement… the same training regime that builds Marines, Doctors, MBAs, Navy Seals, Olympians and successful business Leaders.
