This was written by one of my favorite blogs- thanks LL for introducing me to him.
Below is simply an excerpt from Craig Harpers latest blog. To read it in it's entirety go to www.craigharper.com.au
Are You Ready?
Yes, your best life in 2011 is totally up to you.
There is no magic wand, thereís you. There is no quick-fix, thereís hard work - your hard work. There is no fate or destiny but there are better choices, behaviours and reactions. Lasting change is not about resolutions. For the most part, they are crap. Lasting change is about you. Itís not about some date on the calendar, itís about commitment. Your commitment. Itís about your total investment. Itís about you doing what most wonít. Itís about you being genuinely ready to do what needs to be done. Day after day. Itís about you. Even when crap happens to you, around you and despite you, itís still about you Ė your reactions, your resilience, your courage and your attitude in the middle of adversity. The only world you can control is your internal one Ė the place you live. You Ė and you alone Ė will determine the quality of your year, the quality of your experiences and the quality of your outcomes.
Are you ready?
How Much do You Want it?
Rigt now Ė at this moment in time, sitting there in your chair with that goofy look on your face Ė this can be ďjust another article you readĒ or it can be the moment you make a decision that changes your life. You know enough, youíve learned enough, youíre smart enough, youíre talented enough but the question is:
ďDo you want it enough?Ē
In truth, some people donít want it enough to make it a reality. Theyíre simply not repared to pay the price and do whatís required. Talking, hoping, wishing and intending is not doing.
I can supply some of the theory. I can support you, encourage you, educate you and periodically kick your arse but only you can do whatís required to transform your life. Only you can apply the strategies and turn the theory of transformation into practical, measurable, tangible results. I canít change you. I canít make your life better. I canít be courageous for you. I canít react, choose or behave for you. But you can do it all.
2011 can be another year or it can be the year.
