You’ve declared that 2011 is going to be better than last year. It’s got to be, right?
Hell, maybe you’ve even gone as far as to say that this year is going to be the year you settle for nothing less than Kick-Ass! Woo-hoo!!!
The question is, just how are you going to go about making this year better than last year? What’s your plan for achieving kick-ass?
You have one, right?
If not, I’d love to offer up a few suggestions for how to go about doing it.
I’m doing this because I want to see you living a Kick-Ass Life. Mostly because I’m selfish, the more people living kick-ass lives, the more interesting, awesome, happy people there are for me to hang out and play with.
I mean seriously. People living kick-ass lives are fun and from my perspective- Fun is better!!
Assuming that you all want kick-ass lives, I’m going to share some things that will help you create one for yourself.
First and foremost, the proper mindset is essential!
The way you approach creating change is very important. Where you focus your attention, how you think about things and your level of commitment deeply influences your outcome.
If you’re like many people, you’re used to focusing on the things that aren’t working for you. You get caught up in your problems and you can’t see any solutions. You feel stuck and overwhelmed and nothing seems to change, or it gets worse! This is so frustrating, and you begin to doubt yourself and often times give up.
You’re approaching things from the wrong angle!
When you focus on all your problems and the things you don’t want, you get more of the same. When you learn how to shift your mindset, so that you are focusing your attention on all the things that you do want in your life, and the things that feel good to you, then you will get the results you are looking for.
Where you focus your attention matters! Luckily, this is something that you actually have control over. You get to choose what thoughts you pay attention to. It takes a bit of practice, but you’ll get the hang of it.
Anchor yourself into your desire to live a Kick-Ass Life.
This is important because eventually things are going to get difficult. If your not anchored into your desire it will be really easy to give up when the going gets rough. If you want to succeed at creating your Kick-Ass Life, you have to be committed and persistent in your efforts. One way you can do this by setting an intention and making your happiness a priority.
