International Speaker, Peak Performance Trainer and Business Mentor Arnon Barnes explains how to change your life for the better.
Yes! It’s that time of the year, Christmas lights are shining bright and people are planning their gift lists and how to dress up the turkey dinner this year. Maybe you are even considering ‘What do I want to achieve in 2019?’, or ‘What are my goals?’, and ‘What do I wish to change, keep, grow, reduce or eliminate in order to make 2019 my best year ever?’
Well, let’s get right into it. Firstly, and let me be clear about this, I strongly recommend that you DO NOT write down any new goals. Again – I strongly recommend you DO NOT set goals for 2019! What?!? Yes, you read that correctly.
Before you stop reading this article, let me share my perspective on ‘setting goals’. After researching, studying and working with some of the best business leaders from all over the globe, one thing is very clear. None of them simply ‘set goals’. Although that might be the ‘terminology’ they use, they definitely do not set goals. What they all do, is set Game-Changers!
What is a Game-Changer?
Think about it like this: A Game-Changer is something that when you ‘go after it’ and eventually achieve it, it will completely transform the landscape of your personal, professional and/or your financial life. It’s about doing something so massive and radical that the impact would be positively huge on your life and the lives of others. It’s about contributing to the legacy you are currently creating, whether you are aware of your legacy or not. A Game-Changer needs to be something BIG! Something that is going to cause you to have to take big amounts of focused and dedicated action. It will require commitment, creativity and energy for you to achieve that specific Game-Changer. It will require you to step out of your comfort zone and grow!
A Game-Changer, as the word presents itself, will immediately require you to think bigger, to act bigger and, as a knock-on effect, will result in you stepping up and playing a bigger game. So much more than you just setting another ‘goal’.
The energetic vibration you will need to put out in order to accomplish two or three clear and specific ‘must achieve’ Game-Changers is far greater than even the terminology and the possible future rewards of achieving any goal. Having a goal is fine for the short-term, but when we want to step into our power and create a stronger and more powerful vibration, that’s going to demand you taking massive, focused action. And that comes in the form of having and setting clear, beneficial and life-changing Game-Changers!
To give you a simple example: going to the gym twice a week is a goal – weak. Running a marathon or doing an Iron-Man event, that’s a Game-Changer!
Making an extra 10k, 20k or 50k next year, is a goal – weak. Making an extra 100k, 500k, 1m is a Game-Changer! I hope you’re catching onto this new terminology. I teach this subject to all my entrepreneur students and the business leaders I work with from all over the world. And they love the idea and the massive results this change in mindset has brought them.
For me, one of my Game-Changers from the past was successfully authoring my first book, Rebel Entrepreneur: How to win the game of business and break free from what’s holding you back. Leaders I have coached have been able to take their local business and transform it into a global success within a year. Others managed to transform from business operators to business owners in a matter of weeks. All these results allow the business owners to experience more financial freedom and have the choice to enjoy life more and do more of the things they love. Because, after all, having a business and building it ‘correctly’ should benefit and reward the business owner both financially and from a more ‘time-freedom’ perspective.
What are the two or three Game-Changers that will positively change your life? What will completely transform you from someone who is doing good, to someone that can no longer be ignored? Because that’s exactly who you need to become, someone that can no longer be ignored by the market place.
