I set a challenge to kill the old me. Ninety days passed. I fell out the sky. Face hit the pavement. Blood gushed out. The challenge was a huge success.
I now live my life in six month intervals.
Every six months I want my life to change. More money. More adventures. More happiness. More joy. Less stress. Less worries. Less fears. Less limiting beliefs.
Do you want the same?
I bet you do.
Here’s how to make it happen:
a. Don’t set goals. Set themes.
Every 30 days should be directed towards a particular theme. Maybe your theme is health. Maybe your theme is wealth. Maybe your theme is relationships. It doesn’t matter. Pick one theme in need of improvement. Yep just one. And focus on it for at least 30 days.
b. Define your process
I hate to-do lists.
I hate looking at my calendar and seeing a bunch of things I have to do.
I’d rather only see one thing. And that’s why for the purpose of these challenges, I encourage you to set just one process. Pick one activity that would have the biggest impact on your life. Only one.
If your theme is health. Maybe your one thing is working out every single day for 30 minutes.
If your theme is wealth. Maybe your one thing is spending time on sales and lead generation every single day for 4 hours.
If your theme is adventure. Maybe your one thing is doing something new every single day.
It doesn’t matter. Just pick the most important process.
c. Set your duration
Will your challenge last 30, 60, or 90 days?
Set the time. You are the boss.
d. Get a calendar
Go to Walmart or Target. And pick up a calendar.
Put it up next to your bed.
On the right hand corner write your monthly theme. Then below it write your one process.
e. Win the day
Now you should have an empty calendar staring at you.
It’s your job to fill it up.
How do you fill it up?
Do your process every single day. Once you do, put a big W for the day. The W stands for Win.
f. Review & track your progress
At the end of the 30, 60, or 90 days you have to conduct a review.
Grab your notebook and analyze your area (theme) before and after.
Then pour a glass of whiskey and toast to your progress.
g. Repeat and keep setting challenges for every area of your life
If you’re not growing, you’re dying. Every month you need to be climbing.
If you set one new challenge every month for the next six months…
You’ll have achieved more than you ever thought possible.
More money. More health. More happiness. More adventures.
You can have it all.
But you have to start challenging yourself today.
