Is there anyone out there like me? Do you plan to do things that you just never seem to get around to? I know I don’t want to do this, but life just happens and well . . . I ask myself, what do the really successful people do that I don’t? They say you need written goals. I have written goals. So scratch that as the sole solution. Especially when you write them down and stick them in a drawer somewhere and never look at them again until you clean out the drawer. There must be more. I’m committing to make 2015 different. How about you?
I’m going through Michael Hyatt’s “Your Best Year Ever.” It is eye opening and amazingly helpful. I feel like it is one “ah ha” moment after another! I’ll share a snippet from Day One that really struck me.
There are 3 truths we must hold in order to move into our best future.
1. Your limiting beliefs are the only thing holding you back.
2. You have more power than you think; the only thing missing is clarity.
3. You have more resources than you can possibly imagine.
Wow! I had to ask myself these questions. What limiting beliefs are holding me back? What do I need clarity on? What resources have I been over looking? I felt like I could see a light at the end of the tunnel. Finally, progress! This seems to be a theme in my life and an answer to prayer because I keep running across pieces to this puzzle.
Recently, I learned this great Acronym PDCA – PLAN, DO, CHECK, ADJUST
Most of us plan and then do and if it doesn’t work, we just say to ourselves, “We’ll that failed.” and quit. No, you just found a way it wouldn’t work. All you need to do is check what you did and then make adjustments and repeat the cycle. That’s how to move ahead. What if Edison had quit after his first attempt at the electric light bulb. You’d be reading this by candlelight. What he did was PDCA over 9,000 times before he made an electric light bulb that worked. This concept knocks fear of failure on its ear!
This year, I’m determined to change ready, aim, aim, to ready, aim, fire, bullseye! There are big things to accomplish out there! I’m getting rid of limiting beliefs, getting clarity, and tapping into those limitless resources and implementing PDCA in my life on a consistent basis. After all, I’m a child of the King!
I’d love to hear from you!
