I believe that results and success go hand in hand. Don't you just love them? Results are like the weighing scale of your life. They never lie. You can walk past the mirror sideways, suck your tummy in as much as you want but at the end of the day, you'll have to face the fact that the numbers on the scale are just not adding up! Been there, done that and got the Grammy!
Results mirror what you've said you're setting out to do. Results will shout loudly and be the evidence of what you're putting in and what you're getting out. Remember the saying… “What is hidden in the dark will come to light”.? Well results help to illuminate that light for all to see.
As 2013 comes to an end it's important to look back our lives and measure 3 things…
1. The things that served us positively that should stay
2. The things that did us absolutely no good that need to go
3. The new things we need to add that can propel us forward
If we're not taking stock of your wins and losses, we're not learning and if we're not learning, we're not growing. If we're not growing then… ‘Houston we have a problem!'
If you don't know what works in your life and what doesn't, there's no way you're going to be able to see any real sustainable life change. You have to know where you are so you can improve on it. Sounds obvious? Not really. So many people live their lives going around in circles. They regurgitate the same activities, relationships, spending habits, health patterns, spiritual stance and expect to see overwhelming success. I'm a great believer in miracles but this mindset and behaviour even challenges my belief system!
So today the challenge for us to measure our life results. Don't just ask yourself the hard questions but try and answer them.
Ask yourself… What do I need to keep, change and add?
You can't change what you're not aware of and let's face it bluffing success will only last so long. When all is said and done we all know that ‘results don't lie'.
