Mark Cole: Insure Your Best Year Ever By Jason Brooks | January 18, 2019 |
This is for those who are expectant. I’m talking to people who already have a plan and are ready for 2019 to be the above-and-beyond year you’ve been anticipating! If that’s you, I want to help you create an insurance plan for the goals you’ve set this year.
I don’t believe you can be successful if you don’t have a plan. If you don’t know where you are going, how will you know when you get there? Clarity on what you’re pursuing keeps you focused in the difficult times.
- What areas have to be different?
- What areas need to be different?
- What areas do you want to be different?
State your aspiration out loud! I cannot stress the importance of this enough. Some people are fooled into thinking they can reach their potential alone. But you can’t—you need to put your aspiration out there!
Get an inner circle, women and men that have the ability to give you a greater set of odds to hit your plan—people that can bring something to the table to push you to meet your goals. Partner with significant people that are going in the same direction as you.
While interviewing tennis great Serena Williams, she described how she envisions winning the championship before entering a tournament. She described visualizing every moment after the final point: how she will shake her opponent’s hand, how she will wave to the crowd, what she will say at the podium, and so on. Talk about a winning attitude!
Don’t just imagine what success is—imagine how success feels, how you’ll handle it, and what you’ll do when you’ve achieved it. If you have done all of the first 6 steps well, it’s time to plan the party! What will you do for yourself and the people who helped you accomplish your plan for 2019?
