Insights 2020

Another year is coming to an end and another year is about to begin.

At this time of year, most of us are looking back at what we did right and what we did wrong in the year behind us. We’re also looking forward. We’re deciding what we want to keep doing right and what we want to do differently. We hope that, by changing things, we can get better results.

We all want to grow and develop. We’d all like to get better results in our financial lives, in our relationships, our health, our careers, our creative endeavors…the list goes on.

The same thing goes for me. I’d like to make more money. I’d like to be healthier. I’d like to be recognized and rewarded for my creative talent and to have the time to pursue it as far as it could go.

Physical. Mental. Emotional. Spiritual. Social. Financial.

These are the different areas of life we’d all like to improve and get better results.

When I look at my own life and at the people around me, this is the major point I’m taking home from 2020.

We can’t raise our game in any one of these areas without raising them all. If we look at our lives and we’re honest with ourselves, we’ll realize that every one of these areas is already at the same level as all the others. They always will be.

There’s a saying that how we do one thing is how we do everything and it really is true. How neat and organized we keep our desk is a direct reflection of how organized and orderly our thoughts are. Our body condition, our outward appearance, and our personal hygiene not only directly reflect how well we value and take care our ourselves, they also directly impact our relationships with others and our careers.

Assign them a number on a scale of one to ten if that helps.

If we’re a four in physical fitness, we’ll be a four in finances and a four in social relationships. If we’re a seven in financial success, I would bet you cold, hard cash we’ll be a seven in physical fitness, relationships, spirituality, mental prowess—the whole package.

None of us can escape this. If we start exercising and getting healthier, our minds will clear. Our ability to relate to others will improve and we’ll become happier and better connected to ourselves, others, and the world. We’ll have more energy and make more money.

On the flipside, if we lose all motivation in life and let our health and fitness go, we’ll get sloppy in our careers, too. We’ll give up on creativity which means we’ll lack the motivation to earn more. We’ll shrug our shoulders at relationships and self-improvement, which means we won’t improve. Instead, we’ll deteriorate across the board. We’ll degenerate mentally, physically, socially—all of it.

This is why we see high-powered, millionaire CEOs who have built prosperous corporations and at the same time they’re highly intelligent, spiritually connected, have healthy long-term relationships, and they’re also massively fit and healthy long after midlife.

This is no accident. When we raise our game in one area, it causes a ripple effect to every other area of our lives. It will NOT remain confined to one area.

Why?

Because we’re not compartmental beings. We’re calling these areas by different names for the sake of convenience, but the bottom line is that each of us is still a single, unified individual. Each of us is living one single life, not six different lives.

As we improve, IF we improve, we will do it as one unified living piece, not in fractions.

The wonderful news is that we don’t have to improve everything at once. We can break this down into one or two areas at a time. If we’re having relationship problems, improving our mental agility or our physical health will improve our relationships, too. If we’re struggling financially, improving our mental prowess, our creativity, or our spiritual connection will flow to our finances.

Investment of time, care, attention, and improvement in ourselves is never wasted.

IT ALWAYS WORKS.

That’s why self-improvement, empowered change, and personal development are so, so important. When I look forward to 2021, my plans are for self-improvement and personal development.

ALL my plans are for self-improvement and personal development. Without exception.

That’s the only way any of us is going to start getting better results and to be able to change things we don’t like into what we do like.

I hope this helps someone out there.

I wish everyone reading this a happy, prosperous, and fulfilling New Year.
