Stimulate Yourself to a New Best Level™

Happy New Year! Look for me to stimulate you to a New Best Level™ in 2006. Many of us made New Year resolutions recently, but statistics show that 95% will not be accomplished. Let's do something to lower this percentage!

Many of you know that I grow my business and life through one motivational principle: Take a Spirit-Enhancing Action to generate Spirit-Enhancing Results. Resolutions, dreams, goals, and objectives become unsexy without spirit. But spirit is usually the first thing to go when things aren't going well for you.

Here are five blockbuster strategies to accomplish your resolutions, dreams, goals, and objectives:

1.  Keep things sexy by keeping the spirit. Spirit consists of good emotion and good logic intertwined. Get rid of predispositions that cause stagnation and the ho-hum thinking and feeling that anything you do creates the same results or isn't worth the effort. Keep the spirit! Make it sexy and fun!

2.  Realize that your resolutions, dreams, goals, and objectives must stimulate you to a New Best Level. Otherwise, it will feel mundane. No matter what happens, keep in mind that we go forward each day, not backward. Taking a step back is not going backward.

3.  Implement positive change. Identify what actions you must take and what Spirit-Enhancing Results those actions will create. Actions are continuous learning through conferences, events, articles, motivational CDs, books, courses, and increasing all aspects of your communication skills and spiritual growth.

4.  Keep the items that work. Make them habit-forming to create more options. Each day you should be a new person with an increased skill set. Keep adding new habits. Retain them to form a more powerful You!

5.  Make every interaction strengthen a relationship. Don't feel you've won when you get your way but make the other person respect you less. Your goal is to win and make the other person respect you more. That's how the relationship is strengthened.

The personal trainer at my gym told me that people don't achieve their fitness goals because of their lack of motivation. They want specific results too fast. When they don't see results immediately, they lose interest. Learn what your body responds to and tweak it with variety to stimulate New Best Level responses. Try something new and add your touch and knowledge. Then you have something others may want to benefit from having.

Keep the Spirit!
