"You cannot change your destiny over night but you can change your direction.”
[NOTE: This is the first in our, NEW YEAR Series (at least 8 NEW episodes, taking you step-by-step, "How to Make 2018 a Breakthrough Year!"]
Most people "want" some change and / or improvement in their life. But "wanting" is not the same is making a clean and clear delineation. DECIDING what specifically will change for the better is entirely different than wanting or hoping.
STEP #1: DECIDE.
Martin shares a Tony Robbins' great quote, "A real decision is backed by action." This helps to take us out of the realm of "wishing" or "wanting" and moves us toward a definitive DECISION and gaining some real momentum.
Turns out, the Latin root and meaning of decide is to "cut-away". "To me that means we are intent on cutting-away from our old habits and eager to setup/begin new behaviors/habits that we can align to our new goal!"
Deciding is the beginning of transformation!
Deciding is that fundamental first step and a real decision implies commitment!
Think about how you get anything significant accomplished, you first say to youself, "I am going to ______________" That could be as simple as going to the bank or store or something far more meaningful as getting out of debt. It starts with the decision!
