My guide to setting a powerful intention for 2018

Theme

I want to share with you one of my deepest and most powerful transformational practices. I look forward to it every year. Without exception, huge transformation occurs for me as a result of it.

It’s creating a THEME for the year.

This is about choosing a one or two-word theme, which becomes a powerful intention that acts like an invisible guide for everything that I do in the year. As I put conscious focus and attention on my theme during the year — amazing things happen with very little effort.

I usually pick my theme on New Year’s Eve, but this year, the theme emerged early.  And I couldn’t be more excited.

2018 is the “Year of Yes!”

I want to share with you what lead me to this…

As the business has grown and as demands on my time professionally and personally outstripped availability, I have become very guarded and protective of my time and of my energy. My team devised ways of guarding my schedule and only allowing me to see a fraction of all communication. Not only did it seem like the right thing to do, it felt like the only thing that could be done.

After a few years of operating like this, I felt like my whole being became a NO to everything. I felt disconnected. I felt closed off. I began to feel emotionally walled off.

It took me a while to diagnose what was wrong. And as soon as I knew, my theme immediately sprang into action. Thus the “Year of Yes!” was born.

In 2018, I am going to say Yes to life. I am going to bring all of myself to each person I interact from a place of gracious service. I will also surrender to the fullness of my being to each moment, knowing that my complete presence and connection is a true gift to me and everything around me.

My Yes’s will be full. My Maybe’s and No’s will be unapologetic No’s.

I am truly on fire!  And my theme ignited the flame.

Now it’s your turn.

Here’s what I suggest you do to create your own THEME for 2018.

#1 – take a couple of hours away from the hustle and bustle of your life and tune into what you really want for yourself and what’s been holding you back. Journal on that for 15-30 minutes. And then ask yourself what yearly theme would give you the breakthrough you are seeking. Trust your gut knowing that you can’t go wrong.

#2 – once you have a theme, please share it with important people in your life as a public declaration of your desire for a breakthrough (also share it here with me in the comments below this post)

#3 – get a brand new journal for the coming year, put your theme at the top of it and create a practice of journaling around your theme at least 3 times per week

Once you do this practice, you will experience a breakthrough. You will live into your theme and your life will never be the same again.

It happens for me every year, and it will happen for you.

Let me know what is your theme for 2018 in the comments below this post (or please share any ideas you are playing with)

Intentionally yours,
~Bill

P.S. 2018 is going to be an amazing year. Can you feel it?

Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

How to Turn Your Biggest Disappointment into a Huge Success

People are often surprised to hear how many failures I’ve had to deal with in my life and in my business.

It’s easy to see my successes and all of my accomplishments and completely skip over my heartaches and disappointments.  It’s easy to think that “he has it all together, he doesn’t have to deal with the devastating letdowns that I have to deal with on a regular basis.”

Nothing can be further from the truth.

I fail more often than I succeed.

I get discouraged all the time.

I have doubts and fears in me and all around me.

And running my business isn’t somehow easier for me than for anyone else.

I want to give you an example of this with one of my recent disappointments. [Continue Reading…]

The most important business choice

procrastination
The most important time to do something is precisely when you don’t feel like doing it.
  • You know that going to the gym this morning is what you need, but you don’t feel like it.
  • You know that keeping your mouth shut right now because you’re mad will help the situation, but you just can’t help yourself.
  • You know that taking 15 minutes this moment to meditate is what will help you get centered, but you just can’t get yourself to sit down.
  • You know you need to do that thing you’ve putting off in your business, but somehow you continue putting it off for just one more day.

What we truly need is often the hardest thing to do.

Earn More, Serve More, and Work Less. Here’s how…

More Less stockphoto

What if you could find a way to double, or even triple the number of dollars coming into your business without working more hours?  And, what if, with that increased revenue you could also exponentially increase the impact and results you’re able to deliver for every single client that worked with you?

It’s possible.  And that’s the topic of today’s blog post.

I find in talking with many small business owners, one of the biggest challenges they face is making enough money to make their business sustainable.

Far too often I see them undercharging and under-earning.

So how do you change this so you can start creating more income, and a steady flow of clients… all while working the same hours or less?[Continue Reading…]

A Fun Game You Can Use To Break Through Your Income Ceiling

Fish flying

I want to talk to you about your income ceiling today.

It’s a big topic for most business owners I talk to.

Your income ceiling is often based on the most amount of money you’ve ever made in your business.

For example, let’s say the most you’ve ever earned in one month is $3,500. That means that your current monthly income ceiling is $3,500 a month.

You have never had the experience of earning more, so in reality, you don’t know what it takes to get to a bigger amount, and you don’t know how it will feel once you do.

Here’s fun way to create incremental shifts, and break through your ceiling…

I recommend that you create a game out of raising your income ceiling.

Here’s how that might look:

Perhaps you earning $3,500 this month. So you can strive for $3,600 next month. And $5,000 six months from now.

Can you imagine creating an intention of earning just a little more each month than the previous month and keeping that going for a while?

I’ll give you an example of this in my life.

In my twenties, I conducted a personal 1-year experiment of going to the gym and working out every day. I started all my workouts on the stationary bike with the intention of burning off more calories than the day before.

And I did that every single day for a year.

Sometimes I did it by going faster and sometimes I just had to bike longer to beat my performance from the previous day. And it almost never felt difficult or impossible because I was gradually increasing my performance.

And at the end of the year, I was doing some remarkable things on the bike – I could go on for hours and at a pretty fast pace.

But because I was raising my fitness ceiling slowly, with intentionality and most importantly with consistency, I was able to achieve so much more than I would have thought possible.

So I would love for you to take on this gradual approach to raising your income ceiling so that it won’t feel impossible each month and yet over a whole year, you can greatly improve your financial situation.

Share in the comments below and let me know – what is one thing you can do to take a more gradual approach to break through your income ceiling?
