How To Create Meaningful Change In 2013

The New Year is best the time to map out your goals and resolutions for self improvement! But despite the hope every new year brings, few people create the change they want. To help you make 2013 your best year yet, we’ve compiled the advice of four different success experts to help you create meaningful change this year!

Set Yourself Up For Success

Don’t give yourself the opportunity to make excuses, hand success to yourself on a silver platter! Tony Robbins suggests setting smaller goals that help you to hit your larger target. For example, don’t set out to lose 20 pounds in 3 months, instead, resolve to do 30 minutes of exercise a day or skip sweet deserts six times a week. By having prescriptive goals you can focus on, reaching your overall target will be a lot easier!

Part of Tony’s success plan is to set up goals that you can work on every day. For example, if you procrastinate too much, you should spend 20 minutes a day on the tasks you put off and gradually increase that amount to boost your productivity!

And when you reach your mini-milestones every day, celebrate! You’re working towards improving your life!

Change Your Mind

Napoleon Hill, author of the classic motivational book Think And Grow Rich is a firm believer that mindset dictates happiness and success. He suggests to change your mind’s reality so that reaching your goal is a certainty.

Hill writes, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve”. You must know inside that your goal is going to happen, no matter what. For example, if you want to bulk up, every balanced meal and workout is just another step towards the reality that your mind knows will happen.

On adversity and plateaus, Napoleon believes these are opportunities to learn and achieve new things. If you hit an obstacle reaching your goal, it is a chance to learn on the path to success!

Own Your Goal

Marshall Goldsmith, a top business author says you must take responsibility of your goals, given how much it takes to succeed. “Most meaningful goals take a lot of work to realise,” he says, commenting that day-to-day distractions make many people lose focus from success. Goldsmith write the keys to achieving a goal are understanding the size of monster tasks and being motivated enough to tackle them, even if the rewards are few or non-existent along the way.

One of the ways to accelerate success is to try and achieve your goal with a support group. This can be direct as working towards your goals with others or as simple as making it public. Getting support is also a great way to learn things that make achieving your goal easier.

Change Your Worldview

2013 can be an opportunity for you to create many meaningful goals! Health guru Deepak Chopra says processing the world through a fully open mind  will open opportunities for achieving success and personal growth. Deepak writes open mindedness brings you closer to your true potential, while the search for instant gratification stalls our personal growth.

Deepak Chopra says one can become open minded by adopt a growth mindset: finding opportunity for personal growth in all things and letting all experiences, positive and negative help you form new goals for growth. He suggests reading as a great way to gain perspective and stimulate creativity. Engaging with people of differing viewpoints is a great way to learn something valuable.

The heart of Deepak’s message is opening oneself to the world will allow opportunities for growth and positive change to occur.
