5 thoughts to Create a 2014 That Inspires Your Best

If 2014 ends the same as 2013, will you be happy? 

1. Have your biggest dreams written and on display!  

Your dreams and audacious goals should be written where you can consistently see them.  Create ways to “play” with your BIG DREAMS every day.   In 2013 Jennifer and I started using Evernote to track our most important weekly, monthly & quarterly objectives/goals.   We use it to capture ideas, thoughts, inspiration, books to read, areas to improve … and our BIG DREAMS.  Having your biggest dreams and aspirations ON DISPLAY constantly keeps us on track and gives us a fighting chance against the daily distractions that are all around us.    

2. Create an inspiring EXTERNAL environment  

Your environment HAS TO inspire you.  Surround yourself with images that motivate you, but also in a clean, clear space.  Clutter truly does clutter the mind, and it’s on MY LIST to improve in 2014. 

Pattern your work and home environment as you’d love it to be.  Create space inspires your best, and organically motivates you.  This is where the magic happens.  This is where you spend most of your time. So make sure it impacts you positively. 

Hang around enthusiastic and positive people that naturally make you feel good, and elevates your standards.

 3. Create an inspiring INTERNAL environment  

What you feed your mind every day becomes YOUR reality.  Read inspiration books - readers are leaders!  Listen to audio CD’s in the car.  Subscribe to blogs that cause you to THINK, and inspires you.  If our daily dose of mind-nutrition comes by way of facebook, the local news, and general negativity, it saps your energy, drains your spirit, and reduces your potential.  Pay attention to what you focus on, it makes ALL of the difference.   

4. Practice discipline  

Discipline isn’t sexy, but it’s necessary to growth.   It’s a requirement to reach your dreams, and become WHO you are destined to be.  It’s the only path to remove obstacles in your life.  

We become what we do every day.  If we practice laziness and distraction, that is what we develop, resulting in regret and missed opportunities.  Practice the habit of discipline, it can be tedious, but it’s the one thing that sets you apart from the ordinary.    

5. Workout everyday

The fastest way to change how you feel is to MOVE your body.   It positively changes your hormonal state, creates energy, eliminates mind garbage, inspires productivity, and provides a fresh start.  There’s no better way to begin your day!
