This is the first blog post of the year, and I want to wish you all a very happy New Year! Most people start the year by making New Year resolutions, and some people hate making New Year resolutions. I think of New Year resolutions as just another way of setting goals, and I'm a huge believer in setting goals and creating a plan for achieving those goals.
If you were to ask most people what kind of goals they've set for themselves, it doesn't take a psychic or a mentalist to predict what they're going to say. Usually it has to do with one of three things. The first is in regards to health. People want to lose weight, eat right, go to the gym, and create more vitality. The second has to do with finances. People want to create more income, save more money, pay off debt, and invest for the future. The third goal usually has something to do with relationships. They want to have better relationships with their spouse, family, friends, co-workers, and business associates.
I'm going to share with you one of my goals for the year, and it has to do with the third item, which is relationships. In particular, my relationship with you. That's right, you, the viewer, the person who's reading this blog post and watching this video.
Over the last few years, I've been on a mission to share information with you to help grow your business, and increase your income, but I have to admit I've done a very poor job of doing that. My blog posts and video posts have been very sporadic, so this year my goal is to do this on a regular basis. My PROMISE to you is that I will put out at least one blog or video post each and every week. Each post will contain valuable information that will help you in growing your business and increasing your income.
I'll be blogging about marketing, business development, personal development, and public speaking. I believe that public speaking is the fastest way to grow your business regardless of what business you're in. Sharing information about your expertise and helping others achieve their own goals is a sure fire way to succeed in any business.
If you haven't already done so, write down your goals for the year. As Brian Tracy says, a goal is not a goal unless it's written down, so write down your goals, create a plan to achieve those goals, and work on that plan every single day. If you work this simple strategy, you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish.
If you haven't already done so, please subscribe to this blog, and leave your comments below. Let me know what you think, and let me know what topics you'd like addressed in the future,and I'll do my best to address those issues.
Until next time, I'm wishing you a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2014!
