How to make 2016 the Game Changer year.
Another January, another pile of New Year’s resolutions you will only stick to until the end of the month. The pressure we put ourselves under to achieve goals, drink less, get fit, travel more to name but a few, is bonkers. You need a Game Changer!
To create your Game Changer means you have to think in a different way; as Einstein said, ‘Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results’.
We can only get what we really want if we really want it and remain focussed. The Game Changer mindset employs strategies to galvanise this plan and keeps you on the road to success. There are several important elements or keys is creating a plan full of passion and purpose, that blends with your beliefs. These beliefs were being formed from an early age by your parents, teachers and elders and their evaluation on your abilities. These opinions will have added to or limited your belief in yourself. This is a whole other blog though!
The most important thing is that YOU decide what you want and plan how you are going to get there. Ask friends and family to support your ideas and do not let their voice override your self talk.
The Game Changer for me in 2015 was that I took the time to step back, grow from lessons learnt and plan my year ahead. Keeping fit and looking after my health are high priorities for me, but I have never been a gym bunny. I needed a new perspective that aligned with my belief that I really can do anything I choose to do. So after many hours of research I decided to train to be a Nordic Walking Instructor, this gets me outdoors, keeps me fit and enables me to travel – Bingo! I now also combine Nordic Walking within my coaching practice as we know that it improves mental wellbeing.
So I will leave this thought with you, explore new ideas, develop a new way of thinking, decided on your Game Changer and have the best year ever.
