Simple Ways to Start 2018 as a Genius
So, 2017 is nearly done. And I need to ask you five quick questions related to how you lived out this year:
If you answered “yes” to my questions, I seriously applaud you. I’ll share some practical insights below that will help you elevate your momentum and inspirational fire.
If you answered “no”, then don’t worry. 2018 is your fresh opportunity to make the self-optimizations and personal iterations to get you back on track, shatter past limits and lead the professional and private life we both know you deserve. And have the natural power in you to create.
We are all constructed to be victorious, in our own authentic way. Yet, if you’re not doing the things you need to do to experience your wins, how can you possibly win?
Please know that the four proven ideas below will get you moving in the right direction of your brightest life … so you start the New Year magnificently, and a fantastic start will set you up for a magical finish.
1Do Your Stop Doing List
Many among us do lists of resolutions and charts of goals. My suggestion to you is that, even more importantly, do a list of things you will no longer participate in: A Stop Doing List. Strip out all the bad habits, time wasters and unhealthy pursuits you’ve allowed into your personal universe, and you’re left with a gorgeous life rich with creativity, productivity and contributions to humanity.
Ideas for your Stop Doing List include:
2Script a 2018 Hero Book
Great Hollywood screenwriters write their endings first. So should you.
Invest in a journal (not that I’m so special – I’m not – but downloading my learnings, insights and gratitudes in my journal for between one to three hours a day has been my consistent practice for 20 plus years; it has transformed my core and saved my life).
Then, before 2017 finishes, fill the journal with your life script declaring, in as much detail as possible, how you wish 2018 to unfold. I suggest you use my 8 Forms of Wealth framework and write about your intentions and aspirations in the following main areas that I believe all must be nourished daily for a world-class life (money is just one metric of true wealth, I believe you’ll agree).
Vague plans deliver vague results. So, get this exercise done quickly so you hardwire in some serious clarity, conviction and passion to start 2018 like the genius you’re meant to become.
3Forgive the Unforgiven
Few things drain your fire and destroy your gifts than carrying around people who have hurt you on your back. Here’s a precious skill for leading a legendary life: learn to let go. Sounds so very basic and easy to execute yet it’s not. But learning to let go of those who caused you grief and releasing the experiences that no longer serve your rise to amazing is super important if you’re ready to make 2018 your absolute best year yet.
“Ok Robin, so how do I do it?” you wonder. You just do it. You just vote for your beneficial future versus living your days stuck in something that happened back in 1922. You just decide to move ahead. To live richly. To understand that everyone does the best they can do based on their level of wisdom, maturity and private power. And if that person who disappointed you could have done better, they would have done better. Right?
4Calibrate Your Vitality
Energy. Stamina. Peak health. The assets of A-Players.
You can’t rise to legendary if you lose your longevity.
You won’t lead your industry if you fall sick.
You aren’t going to produce “masterwork” level output if you’re dead.
Start today. I do mean today and because I care about you I’m really pushing you in this message: eat less food, eat cleaner ingredients, drink more water, move your body and sweat for 20 minutes in the morning, get into nature daily, breathe fresh air deeply, sunbathe a little and hack your sleep so you rest soundly (sleep deprivation ruins your moods, depletes your energy and minimizes your lifespan).
Ok. Hope these ideas are helpful and practical and inspirational. You can make 2018 the single greatest year of your life yet. The question really is will you?
You know I’m here to help you. And I truly do think you have a genius within you. Definitely use this fresh new year you’ll soon be receiving to step into the possibility, bigness and mastery the best within you is craving to see.
