How to make 2018 a Breakthrough Year, (STEP #3)

Work harder on yourself than you do on your job. When you work hard on your job you make a living and when you work hard on yourself you’ll make a fortune.
~Jim Rohn

[NOTE: This is our NEW YEAR BREAKTHROUGH Series, “How to Make 2018 Your Best Breakthrough New Year!”]

Step 1# is about deciding. Step #2 is about awareness and assessment.

So, STEP #3 is…


That sounds like some work doesn’t it? Which is why 95% of people never go through these exercises. They require deep introspection, humility and courage.

But, it’s no coincidence that the greatest organizations and companies do these exercises they have figured this out.

Truth is, it was only after doing this exercise for my company that I realized I HAD TO DO THIS FOR MYSELF and it was a game-changer!

Thus, it’s part of the FOUNDATION for our Personal Breakthrough Series.

Why don’t most people do these exercises for themselves? First, they require work (time and energy). The other reason is people begin to doubt themselves and wonder if they know what their values are, or what their Mission statement ought to say. It take time and careful introspection.

Hence, such self questioning is the very proof that these are personal, mental exercises that MUST BE DONE!

***TIP*** DO NOT WORRY about getting it “RIGHT” the first time or even the fifth time, this is a PROCESS. It will take time to get to a point where you are happy with what you’ve produced and feel comfortable with the results. Remember, you are working with clay here and not marble.

So, get AFTER IT! Be sure to click on the F RE E resources: Personal Evaluation Toolkit (pdf 1 and 2)
