Start The Year With A Beginners Mind

bronze buddha statueHow is your first week of 2015 going? Are your plans for world domination coming together?

Since your goals are still fresh and you’re fired up, I want to share a concept that can make a big difference. So often we are excited to make changes, yet we bring all of our old stuff with us.
  • Old thoughts about how we need to do things
  • Old thoughts about what works and what doesn’t
  • Old thoughts about what it takes to achieve our goal

Einstein said it best:

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

No wonder each year can feel like a scratched record, playing the same thing over and over.

Make 2015 the year of the Beginners Mind.

It’s a Buddhist concept that means: having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and a lack of preconceptions. So often what holds us back from achieving our goals is the mindset and pre conceived notions that we bring to our actions.

I can tell you some of the best results I’ve had in my business were from things I thought were a bad idea or wouldn’t work. But I had a coach pushing me to get out of my comfort zone or do things just a little bit differently.

So let this be the year you show up different and get different results.

  • Try something new
  • Shift your mindset about whether it will work or not
  • Be open to opportunities you might have missed before

New actions get new results and they might just be amazing.

To Your Success!
