    Quote of the Week

    "The person who has lived the most is not the one with the most years but the one with the richest experiences."

    --Jean-Jacques Rousseau


    by Brian Tracy

    "You are wiser than you know. You have already had so many experiences in life that, if you could extract from them every precious lesson you have learned, you could make your life into anything you want.

    You should develop the habit of looking upon every experience in your life as a building block, handed to you just when you needed it to take the next step.

    The intense emotions of pride and self-esteem that accompany any great achievement will burn a pattern for success into your subconscious mind.

    You will be forever internally motivated to repeat this pattern. You'll be set for life!

    Take some time to analyze and evaluate your experiences. Write down the valuable lessons you have learned. Then think about the wonderful experiences you have ahead of you (Tracy, 2003, p. 265-266)."

    Coaching Call to Action

    Do you look upon experiences as building blocks? This week take come time to assess 2006 and all the experiences you had. How can you learn and grow from them?

    Ideas and Information

    It's time to get started on your master plan for 2007. Give yourself some quiet time, put on some relaxing music . . . and begin. First acknowledge all that you have accomplished in 2006. Next, write down your goals for 2007. Open your mind to ALL the possibilities. Start each goal with "I am" or I will". Don't even THINK about restricting yourself. This process may take two hours. It may take two weeks. Remember, you're building what you want in your life. To help you with this process, here are some key questions to ask yourself:

    • What do I want to do?
    • What do I want to have?
    • Where do I want to go?
    • What contribution do I want to make?
    • What do I want to learn?
    • Who do I want to meet and spend my time with?
    • How much do I want to earn, save and invest?
    • What will I do for fun and optimum health?
