Ignite Your Life!


Where have you come from this past year? What have you accomplished? Don'tlike the answers? Wish you had better ones, more fulfilling ones? You can -just one year from now!

You have within yourself the power to decide that when someone asks you justone year from now, "What did you accomplish in the last year?" you willrespond, "Let me tell you - I was on fire!"

You aren't getting any younger, and neither am I. If nothing changes, nextyear you will be one year older and still stuck in the rut wondering whenyou will achieve your dreams. But you can change!

Here are some thoughts to apply so that you can take control of your worldand ignite your life!

Decide what you want this year. What is it - exactly? You will never pursueit, nor get it, if you do not know what "it" is. Crystallize it in yourmind. See it. Know it.

Put some sort of physical reminder where you will see it every day. Maybeyou want to lose weight. Put a picture of someone who looks the way you wantto, or perhaps a picture of yourself from when you weighed what you want toweigh again. This will keep it in your mind each and every day.

Increase your positive self-talk. Stop telling yourself negative things, andI include thoughts, not just verbal talk. Instead, start telling yourselfpositive things. "But Chris, those thoughts just run around in my head. Idon't put them there!" Well, catch them. Take them captive and throw themout! When you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, stop and askyourself what the exact opposite would be. Then begin to think it. Let thepositive thought expand and take over the terrain of your mind the same waythe negative thought would have before you ran it out of town!

Act. Yes, act. I don't mean join a theater group. I mean get some actiongoing in your life. Want to get out of debt? Ask the boss for 5 hours ofovertime a week. Over a year that would be 250 hours (I give you two weeksfor vacation. Aren't I nice?). If you normally make $15 an hour, you willmake $30 (or something like that - go with me here). $30 multiplied by 250is $7500. Your action will move you toward your goal. Worrying about moneywon't. If you want to lose weight, go to the gym on a set schedule. Whateveryou do - act! Just make the action something that will propel you towardyour goal.

If you do the above - if you decide what you want, put a physical reminderof it where you will see it, increase your positive self-talk and takeactions that will propel you toward your goals, you will ignite your life!And next year when someone asks how you have been your eyes will light upand you will boldly say, "Man, I have been on fire! Let me tell you allabout it..."
