But don't panic, let me share with you a fact, being low in January is very common for many people around the globe. It is at this time of the year that we see global increase in the number of people feeling depressed, low, and anxious. January is also prime time to refocus our lives, kick-start our passion and stand up for excellence.
But rather than pushing our feelings to one side, we can choose to allow ourselves to acknowledge them and ask ourselves a few simple questions can help become clear of what is it that causes us these winter blues, and what can we do to resolve our problems.
One way of doing this is to fill in the Wheel of Life, a simple exercise that I and many Life Coaches often use to help people find out exactly what is making them unhappy.
Now, for each area of your life represented by a spoke, give it a score out of 10. Where you score below five, take that area and try to focus on it.
For instance if your job or career is pulling you down, try to find ways to improve your situation, perhaps you may want to speak to your boss about a conflict in your team, big workload, or arranging a pay rise. Or perhaps it's something as simple as making time to tidy you’re your home, your wardrobe, or your desk at work so you feel more in control.
If your relationship is an area that needs improving, arrange to sit down with your partner and talk to them. This may involve asking them to help you look after the children or do the washing up. If you are single and want to find a partner, perhaps it might mean joining a new social club or taking up an evening class to meet more people.
The clearer you become of the outcomes you want to achieve this year, the more alive you start to feel as this will trigger you into action%2ҽ(?}7ou do something about your new challenge, rather than just forgetting about it. Tell yourself you want to double your score for that particular area of your life by the summer - or by the end of the year.
To get there you need a good life strategy. You know that you are talented and smart, the decisions, the new rules, and the new habits you make this month will completely set the stage for the entire year. Imagine you starting this year on fire to the way you think, perform and behave. I'm all set to help you make 2015 the single best year of your life yet.
What I am about to share with you is the new success rules that helped my clients who are on my Yearly Clarity Coaching Program breathe reality into their most beautiful dreams. Give yourself the permission to shine and commit to accept nothing less but the best.
May I suggest we start our work together this year with a simple knowing: If you always do what you always have done, you will always get what you always had. In a similar way: if you run the rules most people run, you'll get the results most people receive.
To make a right-angle turn so that 2015 is 100x better than 2014, I encourage you to set some new rules to govern your life by.
Here are 23 rules to consider and then implement over January:
#1. Make time for the things you want to bring into your life.
#2. Get Up early. If you’re not up early, you’re sleeping too late.
#3. Don’t let failure hold you back. Failure becomes a failure if you let it become a failure.
#4. Get clear of the Impact you want to make in 8 key areas of your life.
#5. Commit to becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion of your craft.
#6. Look after your physical health. Get fit so you can serve more people.
#7. Don’t let money control or be the measure of your success or what drive you. Instead focus on the Impact you make on others
#8. If you’re the most successful person in every room, find a new room.
#9. See the greatness in people who have yet to own the greatness within themselves.
#10. Don’t wait to find your purpose to start your dream. Start your dream to grow inspired.
#11. Move away from what the victim call luck, and get closer to what the hero calls persistence.
#12. Be Kind. Be Loving. Be polite. Be on time. Be optimistic. Be Infinite in the way you experience life.
#13. Commit to make each fresh day of this new year a little better than yesterday. Small things, eventually lead to big things and to exponential improvements.
#14. Every day always try to do your best, but make sure you create time to rest. Sleep is a secret weapon of clear, focused, and sharp mind.
#15. If you want to double your income, quadruple your investment in your professional education and get yourself a good coach to help you on your personal development journey.
#16. Stop reading negative news and what the society is telling you to do. You are born with instincts that are there to help you survive, trust them.
#17. Don’t let your fear be the red light of your life. Go directly to where your fear lives because on the other side of that red traffic light is where your power lies.
#18. Stop listening to people who say successful people were born. Your Genius is less about genetics and more about consistency in the amounts of practice you do in your daily actions.
#19. Always make sure to never be too busy to be kind to people who come across in your making and make sure they are the best friends to have around when you have made it.
#20. Learn to say yes to life, opportunities, and the people who are genuinely around you to help you succeed..
#21. When you enter the scarcity, choose generosity. This will create the karma you need to receive.
#22. Remember that with each year passing by you are getting older and closer to the end of the line…chose to play big with your potential this New Year.
#23. Daily practice meditation, calmer the mind, the faster it can find ways to manifest your heart’s desires.
