Today we're going to talk about the role of government. We'll talk about New Year's resolutions and goals, the order of which entrepreneurs should hire. And we'll talk about selling supplements on Amazon.
So it's a new year, new president, new optimism, for some. New pessimism for others. And this is the time of the year where everybody is planning their life to be completely different a year from now, right?
We know them as New Year's resolutions. Look, we all know New Year's resolutions don't stick, they don't work.
Let's talk about New Year's goals, instead of New Year's resolutions. Because I believe that it takes a year for you to really commit and get results out of anything.
I committed to doing the Freedom Fast Lane podcast for a year before I would ever even analyze the result. I've committed to doing Freedom Fast Lane TV for a year before I determine if it's a success or a failure. My training, about 12 Months To 1 Million, I very publicly say when we're selling that training, The Brand Builder Bootcamp, we say if you're not willing to work at this for a year before you have a million dollar business, we don't want you.
Now I have plenty of students who have hit the million dollar mark in month three, or month six. But they got there because they had a long-term focus. They did not get there playing the short game. They got there faster having the long game.
There are plenty of people who lose weight and then gain it back all within a six month period. They lose it and then they gain it back.
The question is, who do you want to be, where do you want to be, what do you want your life to look like, one year from today? And then you can plan out the habit that will get you there.
I have a podcast episode with Todd Herman. You can listen to it here or you can subscribe on iTunes and just scroll to the episode with Todd Herman. He is a sports psychologist. Basically he works with high performers to get the most out of their performance.
So one of the things he talks about is chunking your goals into 90-day sprints. So you can have a year time horizon, but having it done in 90-day sprints. And when you have that type of a deadline, you get way more done and you often get a year's worth of results in 90 days.
I like to say what do you want your life to look like a year from now? And then let's break that into 90-day sprints. That is going to be how you actually achieve the things that you want to achieve.
So if you want to have a business in 2017, how, what do you want it to look like a year from now? Not six weeks from now, not six months from now. What do you want it to look like a year from now? And then plan out the daily habit in 90-day sprints of how you're going to build that business.
Same thing with your body, same thing with your family. I believe you can radically change your life in a year. I don't subscribe to the idea that we overestimate what we can get done in a year. I think we tend to sell ourselves short. It's really, people aren't willing to do something for a year, and that's why they don't get the result.
So one quick thing that you can do right now to ensure your success? Get into a group of people who have already done what you want to do. Whether that is fitness, going to a Crossfit gym with people who take off their shirts and make you feel like a fatty fat fat. Because they're already doing what you want to do, right? So that type of accountability, being around that people, is actually how you hack success. Because your brain normalizes whatever it perceives.
So if you're a room of millionaires, like a lot of people were at Freedom Fast Lane Live, there's a natural up level. Cause your brain has to reset, it has to re-calibrate. It has to align with whatever is going around. Your brain is a normalizing machine. So whoever you surround yourself with, you will normalize. Whether it is body, fitness, money, whatever.
If you're building a business, join The Tribe, join The Backroom, depending on what level you're at. If you are a millionaire and you want to be a deca-millionaire, get into The Backroom. If you are a six-figure earner and you're ready to be a seven-figure earner, join our Tribe. If you're just starting a business, don't just buy a training. Get into a group that has done it before and can come back and pull you alongside them. That's what we do in our Brand Builder Bootcamp.
So, what do you want your life to look like a year from now? Put it into 90 day sprints and then join a group that has done it before. And that is how you will ensure that this year is actually the year that you do the things that you've always said you want to do.
