Do you have something you are passionate about?
With summer nearly over and it’s back to school time, I started thinking about what one thing we can do to improve our lives? Sometimes, all it takes is one change that makes all the difference. Maybe, you can make it a point to wake up an hour earlier. Or, you can start exercising regularly. Whatever it is, now is a good time of year to implement something new. In the #CJJblog this week, I give you seven different categories you can focus on when choosing which changes you can make to increase your chances for success. Enjoy.
- Personal wellness. Do you exercise regularly? I make an appointment with myself and develop accountability to exercise every day. What do you do for your personal wellness?
- Who am I? Why was I put on this earth? Write out your three most important values and use them to create a personal mission statement.
- What do you want? Write out your goals on index cards and recite them to yourself in the mirror. As you start to hear them out loud, you can make changes as your life changes and you accomplish new challenges.
- Professional speaker. For me, I want to develop as a professional speaker. For you, you can insert your profession or passion here. What are you doing to grow in this area?
- Listen to success stories and leadership podcasts regularly. When driving, turn your car into a leadership library with CDs and audiobooks.
- I make it a point to communicate with both my wife and son (lives in California) every day. What are you doing to stay in contact with family members?
- I hold myself accountable to meditate for 15 minutes per day. This helps me clear my mind and prioritize the most important aspects of my life.
- Challenge: What one thing will you implement today to make a positive difference in your life?
