On Writing, Ideas, and Making a Difference

Stop Asking “What If?”

I want to ask you a question: What if 2018 was your best year ever? Not best year in a while. Not a pretty good year. But the year that changes everything. Or maybe the year that everything changed…

Stop Asking “What If?”

What does that do in you, when you think about that?

Does it excite you?

Scare you a little?

My best year ever

For years, I set goals and never met them. For a while, I even gave up on goal-setting.

But then a few years ago I discovered a new system for goal-setting called 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever, an online program taught by Michael Hyatt.

Now, full disclosure: Michael is a friend of mine and I’ve known him for years, but when this program came out, I was jaded. I didn’t think it would work for me. I thought it’d be like everything else I’d ever seen on goal-setting—a lot of fluff, but no substance.

I was WRONG.

I followed the lessons in Best Year Ever, and it changed everything.

Not only did it help me achieve my goals, it helped me better understand myself so that I can set the right kind of goals for me, the ones that would actually make me happy.

This past month, I’ve been sharing important life lessons with you (if you missed them, they’re here on the blog); and if these lessons have resonated with you, I urge you to sign up for Best Year Ever.

Now, maybe you’re on the fence. That’s understandable.

If so, I want to offer you a challenge, something someone once shared with me when I was talking about my dreams for a better life. Here’s what my friend said,

What if we stopped saying ‘What if…?’ and started saying ‘Let’s’?

So you want to have your best year ever… right?

  • What if you lost that weight?
  • What if you wrote that book?
  • What if you did all those things you always said you’d do?

And what if to all of the above, you stopped saying “what if?” and just started saying, “Let’s”?

What do you say? Can we make this our best year ever?

Registration for the 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever program ends by midnight tonight (December 19, 2017). Sign up before then so you don’t miss out.
