I’m in Times Square in New York City celebrating the New Year and very recent birth of our first grandchild. 🙂
Given this is our special 25-Year Anniversary as a company, we created two "special edition" resources to help clients and friends spring board into 2015 with great focus and purpose. Just click on the download buttons below for an instant PDF copy our "Making 2015 an Extraordinary Year" and "Recommended Books, Apps and Resources" guides.
This year, we provide a compact (1-page, 3-question) New Year’s Resolution exercise that inspires growth in three key areas that are sure to "up your game" in 2015. The exercise is pretty self-explanatory, but here are some basic instructions for those who want to use it precisely as designed:
- Hit the Download button to open your very own PDF copy of Making 2015 an Extraordinary Year.
- Review our elegant formula for mastering wealth: Evidence Based Investing (EBI) + Strength Based Wealth Management (SBWM) = Wealth Mastery. You will see three goals related to this formula:
- Goal #1: Be an accomplished, penalty-resistant investor.
- Goal #2: Be an accomplished, depletion-resistant wealth steward.
- Goal #3: With wealth mastered at a higher level, break through blind spots, comfort zones and mind sets that limit results by mastering Thought Patterns for High Performance.
- Under each goal is a Recommended Resource to learn more about each topic if desired. Simply click on the links to be directed to more supporting information.
- The most important element of the worksheet follows. You’ll see three questions for you to review and personally answer as specifically and earnestly as you can:
- Question #1: What’s one important way you want to become a more accomplished, penalty-resistant investor in 2015?
- Question #2: What’s one important way you want to become a more accomplished, depletion-resistant wealth steward in 2015?
- Question #3: What’s one important way you want to break free of limiting mindsets in 2015?
Since wealth is not an end, but a means to an end, the highest payoff will come from your answer to the third question. Here are a few examples to help you discover ways you think that are actually holding you back from achieving a goal or important life experience.
A limiting mindset can be a:
– comfort zone (e.g. "I have only been comfortable traveling in the U.S. or Europe and I now recognize this is limiting my life experience and perspective.");
– blind spot (e.g. "I have been blind to really getting to know my neighbor and I now recognize I have not taken the time to engage in a conversation beyond courteous small talk. ");
– or belief that holds you back ("I could never run four miles, I just don’t have the legs or stamina.");
For the greatest results, select a part of your life where you sense you are limiting yourself or desire growth but keep hitting a wall and look for comfort zones, blind spots and beliefs that are the true culprits that were formerly limiting you.
- Don’t forget to also download and read our Recommended Books, Apps and Resources PDF publication. It contains additional resources that inspire growth and learning in useful ways.
