Get It Right This Time

b2ap3_thumbnail_j0309664Okay…here’s your opportunity.  It’s very early in a brand new year.  Hopefully, you’re filled with positive anticipation.  Here are some ideas to make sure that’s the case.

There’s the old cliché…at least, I think it’s become a cliché.  “If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always get what you’ve always got.”  In general, I don’t believe you can get it right this time, if you’re one of those who think and act that way.

On the other hand, you may not be one who thinks that way.  Rather, you enter the New Year with a plethora of resolutions.  You’re so excited!  You know these resolutions are the best ones you have ever made.  They rock and you’re going to rock!  Right?  Wrong…If you live by the cliché in the previous paragraph!  Nope…you won’t get it right this time.

Another cliché that is germane, here:  “Actions speak louder than words.”  You can have the most comprehensive and well-thought-out list of resolutions but if you don’t have a deep emotional commitment to them you will not achieve them…PERIOD!  Absolutely, you won’t get it right this time.  Action is the precursor to positive results.

So…let’s get it right this time.  Let’s change things up.  Let’s take a bath in your deepest emotions and truly define what you really want this time.

Then, avoid the outcome of another cliché:  “People who fail to plan…plan to fail.”  In other words, if you are going to get it right this time you must pay the price of planning.  Planning is the admission price to a future of certainty.

Now, in my opinion, you creating a future of certainty is getting it right this time.
