In this blog, I am going to share with you 5 Ways to help you win in 2017. These tips are ones that I use each and every year and they help me get set for success and ready to hit the ground running in the New Year.

In 2016, how many opportunities did you leave on the table? Do you look back with regret? Did you achieve exactly what you wanted? Many people don’t because they leave things to chance, they make poor choices and just hope that good things will happen to them.

I am not sure about you, but I like to create as much certainty as I can in my life. I want to be in control and I want to be responsible for my actions and also for my successes.

In business it is critical that we have a plan, a strategy and a structure. We also need this in our personal lives. The reason for this is to enable us to stay out of overwhelm and stress and help us build and sustain a balanced life.

2016 was a great year for me. My work is going well, my wealth is going well, family life is good. It hasn’t always been like that, but now I get that balance in my life. We need this to collect successes in both our personal and business lives. This year I have taken massive action and changed my thinking, my behaviours and my actions. I have been positive, had a high level of energy and been hungry for success.

Also, I have tried to avoid negative press, newspapers and people, they don’t help and in fact they just distract and deflect.

Knowing what I know, I challenge you to try these 5 simple tips to kick 2017 off the way it deserves.

You will need to think a bit deeper and also need to take specific focused action. However, if you do and this helps you make 2017 on of your best years yet, then my work is done.

Tip 1
Review last year

Take a good honest look at last year, write down what went well and what didn’t go well. Try and remember something from every quarter. Sometimes it is hard to remember past the last three months.

Trawl back in your emails and see what subjects you were focusing on throughout the year. Think about each subject/circumstance and note what you would do different if you did it again and what the result could have been.

Tip 2
Visualise the year ahead.

Now we know what we could have done better last year, lets focus on what we want to achieve in 2017. Are there events that your need to prepare for? Do you have pending reorganisations at work where there could be new opportunities? What travel plans do you have with family and friends?

Break these down into quarters and start to really visualise out both your personal and business life. Focus on the end result at this stage, don’t worry too much about the “How” you going to do it.

Tip 3
Plan out your targets and raise your standards.

Now that you have an idea on what you want to achieve, we now need to think about how we are going to achieve them. The first thing we need to do is “Raise our Standards” and increase our goals. If you do what you have always done, then you will get what you have always got.

You are on this earth to get big results and they don’t come from small ideas and actions. Try to get comfortable OUTSIDE of your comfort zone. This is where our learning and development happens. Make your goals big!

Tip 4
Take Action.

This is where the rubber meets the road. Now that you know what you want and why you want it, we need to take focused daily action. We need to monitor and record your progress daily. You do it with your Apple Watch, your Fit Bit and your Sat Nav, so let’s monitor our personal and business development. When you review more frequently you get live results and feedback, this helps us adjust the plan and stay focused on the ultimate goal.

The key thing here is to keep on track. There will be many opportunities for distractions and deflections and we must avoid these if we want to achieve our weekly and daily goals.

Tip 5
Celebrate Success.

Finally, don’t forget your YOU time. You have done all the hard work and now you need to celebrate with your family and friends, to make it all worthwhile. Some of the best experiences in my life have been when I have planned an awesome day out with the family and it has all gone to plan.

The ultimate results we get from this, are the memories that we collect and the photographs that we keep. We also get a big sense of gratitude that we have done something to help others.

It is so important to give something back to others, it’s all part of the balance of life. Also it is part of the way the universe works, so if you do more giving then you will in turn receive more.

Essentially your success in the year ahead will be determined by the choices that you make. Its CHANGE TIME, adapting to change is now the new norm.
