It is not often in life you are given a second chance once you have ignored or have otherwise destroyed your first chance.
If you really work at it you may have a second chance at many things you may have not done well by the first time around. You will have to work at it though. Odds are you had something to do with everything not working out the first time around.
- A relationship at home or at work
- A project you were working on
- A person you manage
- An interaction with a person you know
- A course you wanted to take
- A consistent workout routine
- A healthier diet
Here is one for anyone who is interested right now.
Regardless of your belief in making New Year’s Resolutions, what are the one, two or three things you really wanted to accomplish this year? You have thought about and maybe you even wrote them out somewhere in December or January.
Write them out now and speak them out loud wherever you are – now. Really – Seriously.
“ I want to – – – this year. I am going to – – – this year.”
Both statements for each of the one, two or three things. Out loud!
This is the starting point – identify what these one, two or three things are that you want to accomplish this year. There is nothing wrong with having one thing. No more than three specific items please.
This is not a wish list or a dream list. It is a second chance to visit those things you wanted to do this year and you have failed miserably to get anywhere close to accomplishing anything toward their completion.
No don’t even think it – “Hey Mitch that is a bit mean you know!” Let’s get real – my deal is to always be real, sorry – if you were so good with these things we wouldn’t be having this conversation would we?
Here is the second thing you must do now.
Fight back at these thoughts that will definitely come into your head either right away, like already, or soon enough.
- Who are you kidding you won’t do that
- Half the year is gone already it’s not going to happen
- If you didn’t do it before, what makes you think it will happen now?
With every ounce of strength you have fight back these negative thoughts and get them out of your head. If you hear them from people you know and especially those you love flip the talk around to your resolve. Flip the conversation around to why this matters to you and you are more committed than ever to seeing it through.
Here is the real story. If you know that you deserve a second chance…. If you know there are one, two or three things you want to accomplish this year – follow these steps and get to work and make it happen and you will be on the road to getting them accomplished!
