Burn the Ships!
Do you remember the story about the captain who sent all of his men to shore to do battle, and once the last person had come on shore, he ordered the ships to be burned, cutting off any chance for retreat?
Well, that is what commitment looks like. It looks like burning the ships. It is truly cutting off any possibility of turning back. It’s no longer giving yourself the option of choosing an out.
It’s New Years – and traditionally New Years has become this time when we start with a fresh slate and we declare resolutions for new things we want to do and achieve in this upcoming year.
Then, shortly thereafter, with that scoff in our voice, we laugh and say that all of those resolutions will be broken by February. What if this year could be different for you? What if you allowed yourself to actually achieve the goals you set? What if you burned your ships?
Imagine what your life would be like at the end of 2016 if you actually achieved the dreams, goals and resolutions you are setting right now! You see, if you truly believe that those goals are good and right for you (that achieving them will make your life, your loved ones lives and the world better), then why would you allow yourself a way out??
Typically, it’s fear, or you bump up against an obstacle. Or, worse yet, you unconsciously go back to old (detrimental) habits and now your plan is thrown out the window. I know that is what I did for years. I also know the internal strife it caused when my actions and my dreams did not match up.
I am so truly excited about this year. I have a solid plan to work from every day, I have a coach to guide me through the things which have held me back in the past, I have an amazing team to work with, and a loving & supportive family.
If you are ready for this year to be different for you, too, then do yourself a favor – burn the ships and get in touch with me for a complimentary financial review session. I am going to open my calendar for 5 spots, so we can create a financial plan for you that will allow you to accomplish your goals, and look back on 2016 as the year that changed it all!
Simply reply to this email and we’ll answer your questions and get you scheduled for a call with me! This year really CAN be different!
