Michael Nitti is one of our top coaches at RRI. He is also a dear friend, mentor, and one of my coaches. He posted this today, and I think it's worth sharing.
"It's not what you are looking at, it's what you see. For the most part, what you and I tend to "see" is what we expect to see, which is shaped by what we've seen before. Hence, how most of us react to situations in the present tends to replicate how we've always reacted, which is why people tend to live lives that are little more than regurgitated versions of the past. To break free, one must simply observe this occurring and STOP it. Give it up. Train yourSelf to see what is real and present in the NOW. Acknowledge the past and let it go. Live and love on purpose, which requires that you move toward something intentionally versus reacting from fear. YOU are the author of your own experience. Create!!"
It's hard to believe we are already almost a month into the new year! It's been a very busy time for me. In addition to moving into a new home, Thanksgiving and Christmas (both at my house), out of town guests three times already, being sick, and working, we have added a new family member. My new little grandson, Ezekiel, made his entrance into the world on January 19 at 3:03 a.m., weighing in at 7 pounds, 11 ounces, and 19 inches long.
I am sure life has been keeping you very busy as well. It always does. That's what makes it so easy to get "caught up" and lose sight of our goals. Are you still on track with yours? Are you even clear as to what they are? If so, congratulations! And keep up the good work!
If not, what better time than now to get back on track? Decide right now how you want your life to look at the end of 2013, and get busy! Share your goals with me on our next coaching call. Join our 90 day challenge. No, it's not too late! Don't forget to celebrate every little accomplishment along the way. It keeps you focused and it's just more fun.
Let's all make this the best year EVER! Isn't it time?
