We are 12 days from 2016. This past Wednesday I was on a women’s call with a new friend named Michelle Teague and two network marketing leaders with Modere named Michelle Barns and Sarah Zolecki. The topic was Breaking out in 2016. Three points were focused on and they are worth repeating.
Point one was the past is in the past. Leave it there. God didn’t put our eyes behind us. That is a reminder that we need to look forward. Let the past go. Sometimes that isn’t easy! But it is needed! You can’t do anything about it anyway. Learn to forgive. And remember to work on yourself. Have confidence that what you are doing will work out in the end. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Do what you can, and God will always do what you can’t!
The second point was have a new strategy. If what you have been doing hasn’t worked, try something new. Sometimes that will include letting go of people, even people you were close to at one time. Focus on one new thing. What is your DMO? DMO stands for Daily Method of Operations. Track what you’re doing. Do your actions match your expectations? If they don’t, change them. But make small changes. Huge changes may not be needed. By making small changes you will see the changes faster. And you will know if what you are doing is working or not and you can change what needs to be changed sooner.
The third point was about accountability. You need to be accountable to someone: first and foremost to yourself. But you also need an accountability partner. This needs to be someone that will tell you what you can do differently and encourage you when you need it. This can be a friend, a business partner, your spouse or significant other. But it needs to be someone that will tell you what you need to hear, good or bad.
In closing, you need to have unshakable belief that what you are doing will succeed! And you have to believe that success is your friend. Have a fantastic year!
