How BIG a game did you play in 2011?
Chances are, like your neighbors up the street and millions of other people, you were directed less by a sense of desire and ambition and more by a need for survival.
As a collective we contracted last year like we have for the past 3 years and as a result we experienced very little GROWTH… personally or collectively.
Can you even remember the goals or “resolutions” you set for yourself last year… more importantly did you achieve them?
Perhaps you did. Maybe you stopped smoking, gave up the booze, started a diet, asked your boss for a raise or read a book a month. If so – bravo. But the odds are you either didn’t set any goals or don’t even remember your goals.
And there’s an even greater likelihood that if you did set some goals, like the ones I mentioned above, you didn’t come close to achieving them.
It’s simple, those objectives aren’t ambitious enough to invoke even the slightest bit of excitement much less passion and probably wound up being completely eclipsed by the more immediate need for food, shelter, clothing and even sex.
There is only one way to keep your eye on the BALL and that is to make the BALL so compelling, so audacious and so distracting that you can’t take your eye’s off it even with all the scarcity, fear, and contraction going in around you.
If your sitting back and hoping that everything will “turn around” and be OK in the world in 2012 and that you can just ride the growth crest, you may have another thing coming. The change you seek will be up to you.
You change what you don’t like in your life or it will never change… no one else is going to do it for you.
So this year grow some balls (yes you too ladies) and get audacious, ambitious, and impassioned about what you will ACHIEVE in 2012. Let the idea of taking on something really challenging, something outside your comfort zone and playing a BIGGER game be the thing that scares the hell out of you… not whether or not you will make it through another day.
Come on get AUDACIOUS!!!
