If you happen to get my personal voice mail, you’ll hear me say, “Do what average people do, you’ll have what average people have.” It’s one of my favorite quotes of all time.
The new year is just around the corner, and maybe you’ve already taken some time to set some goals for yourself. If you have, AWESOME! If you haven’t, there’s still time to get your flight plan ready for 2012:
- Do your goals include finding a new job or starting a new project? Be sure to announce your plans with a high-speed flyover. You’ll find that people will come out of the woodwork to help you. How can anyone give you guidance, make introductions, or offer advice if they don’t know what you’re up to? This is also a great way of holding yourself accountable for results!
- Get specific. For instance, don’t just say, “I’m looking for a job,” but be more detailed: “I’m an expert recipe developer” or “I make award-winning cocktails” or “I’m planning to use my skills as a photographer and open a portrait studio.”
Can you recall a situation where you said, “I am going to do whatever it takes and nothing will stop me?” That is thinking with a breakthrough mentality, which simply means you absolutely REFUSE to settle in the smallest of moments and demand a breakthrough life. This is the first step in rising above being “average.” You can do it, but you need to step out of your usual comfort zone. Try something different, new, exciting, or even a little scary!
It’s this kind of thinking and determination that will bring you that much closer to your next job or anything you’ve set as a goal or aspiration!
