DO YOU HAVE A VICTORY LIST!
MY FORMULA FOR FINISHING 2017 STRONG
“Our greatest fear should not be failure. Be afraid of succeeding at something that has no real significance. Imagine getting to the end of a ladder and finding out you were climbing the wrong one all along! What a disaster.”
Purpose + Passion + Profit = Fulfilment!
As someone who is a high achiever, I tend to have a long list of things I’d like to achieve at any given time. I have lists of top clients to work for, revenue targets, types of employees to recruit, projects to sign up, programs to design and execute, places to travel to, courses to take, collaborations to build, books to read, even books to write…and the list is endless…. Many high achievers will admit to the tyranny of having lists, goals, timelines- smart- measurable- achievable- realistic and time-bound.
Phew! Isn’t that enough to cause stress? Just thinking of the pressure of looking at your long lists and checking off what’s done and seeing how much more left to accomplish?
Ah! That word! accomplish…. that power packed high pressure word. And yet it doesn’t have to come with so much pressure. It just depends on your perspective on your goals and lists.
Here’s my equation for making sure I’m not over run by the tyranny of lists, and goals:
I’ve learnt to write a very different kind of list.
My Victory List. This is probably the most powerful list you can learn to write if you want to stay joy filled, end the year strong and pumped up for 2018. I can almost guarantee you that just by writing your VICTORY LIST, you’ll be setting yourself up for a Phenomenal 2018.
Identifying what’s been great about this year, in your life, your business, relationships, community service, your many wins, celebrating them just by writing them down sends strong signals to your brain to create more of those experiences. It puts you in a great mood and a more positive frame of mind. Positive minds create and embrace better opportunities.
So here’s the thing- instead of worrying about what you still have left undone, how about settling down and creating a VICTORY LIST. Honestly, doing this list has been known to deliver many people from untold stress and distress. Most times we don’t realise how far we’ve come until we actually take stock.
And when you do- remember to give yourself a pat on the back for every little inch of progress. Recognise you are still standing. You’ve still got the fight left in you and while you may want to take every bit of what’s left in 2017….remember to celebrate the journey so far….while positioning for a Phenomenal new year ahead.
For now- Just take a DEEP BREATHE and Exhale. Then grab a note pad or your iPad and write a 10, 20, 30, heck why not a 100% Victory list.
I did mine and it was totally amazing. It’s unbelievable how much ground we cover without realising.
To Your Success. Here’s to Victory in all aspects of your life and business. May you finish strong!
Ps. Remember to include all the many life and purposeful accomplishments- many people tend to forget and focus only on pure monetary victories and wonder why they feel so distressed at the end of the year. Remember the equation for fulfilment: Purpose + Passion+ Profit = Fulfilment.
In 2018, determine to focus on all of the above.
