3 Ways To Win 2022
2021 is in the books.
What a year... right?! Plenty of chaos, that's for sure.
But from a different perspective it was an amazing year for me.
And I contribute it to 3 main components (that I want you to steal from me and apply into YOUR life in 2022):
#1 - I WAS SELFISH
I know, sounds rough... but hear me out.
If you don't put yourself first, you LIVE for other people.
You go through your day, to compliment theirs.
You stress yourself out, over their stressful situations.
You compile negativity into your head, because of their negative mindset.
You wait on your goals, because they're waiting on yours.
So really, when I say I was selfish...
I just mean I chose myself first.
But you want to know what happens when I choose myself first...?
I lift other people up alongside me.
I am able to GIVE MORE because I gave myself more.
I am able to motivate others, because I'm motivating myself.
I am able to coach others, because I coached myself first.
I am able to hold others accountable, because I'm held accountable first.
So yes, it's just like the cheesy old saying about putting your mask on first when flying in a plane.
But more than that, this selfishness allows you to STOP PUTTING YOURSELF LAST.
Which you do far too often.
In fact, I bet if you look back to reflect on the entire year of 2021...
There's AT LEAST a handful of situations where you didn't reach your goals because you put yourself AFTER everyone else.
Am I right?
Right now is where you make the conscious decision to PUT YOURSELF FIRST.
Because I'd have you consider that it's the only way you'll reach your goals.
So your homework for this one here is simple:
Grab out your journal and write down all the things you DIDN'T ACCOMPLISH because you
weren't putting yourself first.
And that can also include any thing or moment in the year where you just didn't commit to the process.
You didn't take action.
Or you simply didn't believe in yourself enough to invest the time.
Regardless, those are ALL examples of putting yourself last and not being ALL IN on YOU.
Last but not least, too...
Because it's the New Year... We'll be running our annual 8-Week Challenge that will start the January.
One of the reason we are doing 8 weeks is because we know that over 60% of people give up on their New Year goals by February.
So we're locking you in for a longer time frame, to ensure your success.
So if you're FINALLY ready to make 2022 your fittest year ever...
Where you WANT to be in the pictures, strip down to go swimming, have confidence in every room you step into, and start buying new clothes because the old ones don't fit...

#2 - I HAD A PLAN
I think most people fail to reach their highest level of success because they don't plan for it.
I'd even say that most of them don't BELIEVE they can, so they fail to plan out how they will.
Feel that way personally?
I'm sure you do.
I know I have.
That's why I've read books like "The Magic of Thinking Big" - it shows you how to do so, why it's so important, and who has used it to become the most successful in their industry (all the greats, to give it away).
See, thinking big is part of achieving big.
If you can't imagine it, you can't create it.
But more specifically, if you can't IMAGINE YOURSELF - in it, with it, doing it, owning it.... You'll never find a way to achieve it.
And "finding a way"... well, that's the most important part.
That's the planning part I'm talking about here, with reason #2 I had an amazing year.
I set out to achieve a lot of things and I can honestly say I accomplished them all but one.
And I'll take a 95% pass rate on success!
But what I did before the New Year (of 2021) even hit, was set out some specific intentions.
I gave the year a title. ONE word that was powerful and would set the tone for my entire year.
It was LEADER.
Then I set a specific target for where I wanted to be and WHO I wanted to become, by December 31st.
I can say that I accomplished both of those things, too.
But that was my "Impossible Game"...
This is the "I will have a visible 6-pack" or "I'll be confidently rocking a bikini" or "I'll be running the entire department at work", type of goals I'm talking about here.
The ones you think about... would LOVE to have... but ultimately talk yourself out of because they seem impossible.
Yeah, those ones.
Set those targets right now.
And just know, 1 full year away is just too damn far for you to have true accountability, drive, discipline, and confidence for reaching that goal.
Which is why step 2 is to break it down into quarterly benchmarks.
BIG GOAL ÷ 4.
If it's a 40lb weight loss goal, that's 10 lbs per quarter.
If it's a visible 6 pack, that's 1.5 abs per quarter.
You get the point.
You break it down and then start with Q1.
For Q1, you have 90 days... 12 weeks... 3 months.
This is MUCH easier to comprehend and stay accountable to, with FULL determination and discipline, so that you can reach your goal.
Once you reach Q1's goal - you reward yourself and move onto Q2, which is the 2nd benchmark towards your impossible game.
And when you get to Q2, that "impossible goal".... doesn't seem so impossible anymore.
See, this is how I plan out my year - EVERY year.
I already did it for 2022, too.
I have a goal set for my marriage, myself as a father, my business, and my body.
I spent 3 hours on this.
3 STRAIGHT HOURS JOURNALING AND MAPPING THIS OUT.
Because I care about myself, a lot.
I want the best for me.
And I know that if I'm going to truly achieve the best, I need a plan.
I also know, because I care about myself, that I deserve a well thought out plan so that I can achieve success.
For me, for my family, my team, and my members.
So.... to conclude this... the thing I did in 2021 that allowed me to not be effected by the chaos in the world AND achieve all my goals:
A PERSONALIZED PLAN DESIGNED FOR MY SUCCESS.
Now, your homework is simple... I'm sure you can guess what it is, too.
Write out your impossible game goal.
Break that down into 4 benchmarks.
Map out your Q1 target.
Develop daily habits, routines, and actions to get there.
Become ruthlessly committed to yourself and your results.
But remember, it's not always easy to do this alone.
I don't do it alone.
In fact, I'm writing this just a couple hours before a meeting with my coach/mentor so I can go over my goals with him. AND I shared them all with my wife over Christmas weekend.
Because now I'm not only accountable to myself, but I am accountable to them.
People I love, respect, or invest money into.

#3 - ACCOUNTABILITY
You may have seen that one coming, and that's ok.
Accountability is the glue here.
It's what holds the attack plan together.
It's what continues to put confidence in you..It's what creates an urgency to do the work.
It's a requirement for human beings to be successful - PERIOD.
And so often, you try to ignore it. You try to act as if YOU can keep YOURSELF accountable, but time and time again you realize that's just not the case. You look at things like coaching as an expense, instead of an investment. You see the work as labor, instead of practice. You feel like it's a threat or risk, instead of it being opportunity. You call it failure, instead of calling it learning.
I could keep going... but these are all just common traits and thought processes of the most successful people. All ones that YOU need to adopt, asap.
One of which is accountability. Because it's just a simple requirement for success and it's the most powerful fuel to ensure the work gets done. I set targets for myself as a father and husband, which I share with my wife. I set targets for my body, I set targets for my business, which I review with my mentor. I even set targets for my spirituality, which I share with God and my mentor. And I do all this because those are all areas I desire growth in. Now, you may only be seeking growth in ONE or maybe TWO areas - and that's ok! I started with one. I've been at this for a while, though, so I expand it across all domains of my life. But the point is VERY simple... The reason I get there, is because I always have accountability. I invest in a coach every month and have for the last 5+ years. Why? Because coaching is a monthly bill that's far more valuable and beneficial than my cable bill, phone bill, gas bill, and every other bill I have. It allows ME to be MY BEST. Which in turn allows all those other bills to get handled far easier, anyway. But that investment is for one thing - ACCOUNTABILITY. It's the accountability that keeps me glued to my word and my plan of attack. It's the one thing that never changes in my journey and is the most common thing all successful people share (in any area - athletes, physiques, business, marriages, etc.). And so if #1 and #2 are hard for you to do or you find yourself kind of stuck, just not knowing where to go or how to set targets and create a plan...
CLICK HERE NOW. Get on a call with us, it's free and there's ZERO risk. You need to chat with a coach, though. That's the one thing that will help you bridge the gap from where you ended up last year (2021) and where you will finish this year (2022). Don't let another year go by, settling for less and letting your goals go unaccomplished. You deserve better.
