Today I want to talk to you about a tool that I have kinda forgotten about over the past 5 months. I was going back through some of my old emails and I came across an email that I wrote at the end of last year entitled, "How I changed my life in 2015."
I clicked on it instantly forgetting I had even wrote it. Reading it brought tears to my eyes because it reminded of just how passionate I was about setting goals and not letting anything stand in the way of what I wanted to accomplish. It reminded me of how aggressive I went after my dreams in 2015.
Reading this email got me fired up to get off my butt and start getting ready for 2017.
Motiv8ers this email was about New Year Resolutions and about what I did at the end of 2014 to make 2015 such an EPIC year. 2016 has been just as special but over the past few months I haven't been following the steps below that I followed every day in 2015.
Check out the story about my 2015 below....
How I changed my life in 2015!
All through out my life I have never been a person to set New Year Resolutions. Every one around me just always complained about how they would set a few but would always fall off after just a few weeks. So I labeled it as rubbish and went into each new year without much direction. I just lived day to day just wondering what my future was going to look like not really taking control of my life. Yeah I have accomplished a little bit. Received two bachelor degrees, joined the Army, ran a few marathons and ultra marathons, and later became a group fitness trainer. But I always felt kinda lost not really understanding what exactly I wanted to do with my life!
Then around the middle of 2014 something clicked. I started paying attention to a ton of podcasts and self help audio books. I used to think these things were rubbish as well but the people around me kept pushing me to pay attention to them. So I did. After a few months of listening and studying I began to notice that they all started to say the same thing!
If you want to be successful and live your Dream life you have to first know what that dream life looks like and what is it that you want to accomplish. If you don't know what you want.... how are you ever going to figure out what to do or how to be successful!
So I asked myself what did I want? That was a really hard question. It felt like I had never asked myself that before. But for the Next two weeks I asked myself every day. Then on New Years Eve, before 2015, I wrote all of those wants and goals down. I took two big poster boards and wrote down everything that I wanted to accomplish and posted them up on my wall. Check it out.....
These posters have been on my wall all year.
Then Motiv8ers over the next year I practiced these steps every day!
2. Write those goals down and put them somewhere where you can see them every day
3. Review them every day for at least 5 minutes.
4. Figure out what you need to learn and practice daily in order to accomplish your goals!
So what happened?.........
2015 became my most productive, emotional, EPIC, painful, roller coaster ride, Enjoyable, Loving, rewarding, exhausting, Exciting....year of my whole life!......
NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I LIVED AS MUCH AS I HAVE IN 2015.
Crew I have made some friggin amazing relationships, I ran a 100 mile race, Been killing it in other races, went on some killer trips to the mountains, have met some of my closest friends, found a life that I love, I feel the drive to try and help as many folks as possible, and the biggest accomplishment so far is......Building a business with my closest friends.
Motiv8 has been a dream come true.
Crew my biggest year ever in my life all started with me writing down my goals on two poster boards and posting it up on my wall and looking at it every day!
Did I accomplish every thing I put on my board. No.....But that doesn't mean I am going to stop trying. That goal just might take a little longer than the others. =)
So take your 2016 New Year Resolution planning seriously. I sure am.
I am going to put even more details and goals down this year and see what I can make happen in 2016!

So Crew are you going to SET some New Year Resolutions for 2017?
But don't just mentally say to yourself on New Years Day I am going to do this or that. Start now with reflecting on your year. What went well? What didn't go well? Then over the next two weeks start writing out your dream life.
This is important. What is your DREAM LIFE? Ask yourself every day for the next two weeks and each morning for about 5 minutes sit down and write out what your dream life would look like. Then write down what you would have to do every day to make that dream life happen.
Then, when New Years Eve comes, write all of those goals, dreams, and daily tasks down and once New Years Day hits, you take off running. Every day for about 3 to 5 minutes remind yourself and look over those goals so you can generate the Motiv8ion you need to take action daily on making your dream life happen.
Motiv8ers that is what it takes to get Motiv8ed for 2017 and make EPIC SH$T Happen. =)
Crew if you found this post motiv8ional then post below and let us know how you set your New Year Resolutions.
Lets Stay EPIC Together.
Crew Stay EPIC and Don't Forget to Be AWESOME!
Coach Ty Out!
