Is it just me or does creating the life you want to make you feel like Bill Murray in the movie, Groundhog Day. Well, if you want to do your goals, you may as well get used to it.

Whatever goals you are working toward, no matter how long you've been at it, the all reset every day. You always begin every day as if it were your first.

Yes, everything is a bit easier since you have built a foundation - one that has grown from past daily efforts. However, with every rising Sun, you will find a new way to progress toward your goal.

It doesn't matter whether you succeed or fail the previous days. From where you are now, today is the first day of you making your dreams come true.

Whew! I bet that takes a load off your shoulders - right?

I like to fly little airplanes.

Over the years I've learned a lesson; I don't have to ask permission to go where I want to go. It's always up to me to choose my destination.

I'm what the FAA refers to as the Pilot in Command - the Boss of the airplane. I have total control to decide on my goal and plan my journey. I'm also required to tell Air Traffic Control where I'm traveling. Their job is to make sure I arrive safe and sound.

There is no requesting permission and no negotiating. I call ATC on the radio, tell them where I would like to travel, and I'm on my way.

Yes, sometimes ATC will recommend an alternate route, but I always get to my destination.

That sure sounds a lot like life - doesn't it?

Is today the day that you take command of your journey?

I've always believed the Law of Attraction should actually be the Law of What You Think About Most.

Like attracts like. What you think about, you get. Period.

If you're always saying, "I won't get it because I never do," you're right!

If you always dream of a new life while focusing on your current problems that's all you'll ever have.

You ALWAYS get what you focus on most - and you might not even be aware of where your attention goes.

Isn't it time you harness the extraordinary potential of your mind?

Start today with clear focus followed by massive imperfect action.

Your ability to make quick decisions is the mark of somebody who knows what they want in life - but how do you figure out what you want?

Forget the old "Pro/Con" list that your Mom told you to use. It's time to up your game with "Quantum Linguistics!"

Use these four questions the next time you're trying to figure out what to do in any situation:

1) How would I feel if I did?

2) How would I feel if I didn't?

3) How wouldn't I feel if I did?

4) How wouldn't I feel if I didn't?

I bet you get things figured out before you get to question three. Whoa - you're about to be filled with new clarity and excitement!

Have you ever paid attention to the process that moves you forward - or stops you in your tracks?

All change begins with Hope; a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.

Right after the comes Fear; an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat.

When you commit to making your dreams come true, you move into Faith; you have complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

Finally, comes Courage; the ability to do something that frightens one.

Don't allow yourself to get stuck in the along the way - your dreams are waiting.

Is 2017 the year that you will finally Face Your Passion and start living the life you desire?

I've got a power tip used by most successful people I know that I want to pass along to you today.

Folks who are in control of their lives and living according to their terms are planners - most begin planning for the next year in November and finish by December. They use the remaining month of the year for preparation and kick off at the first of the year.

While it may seem simple, I promise that if you put a little planning time in now that 2017 will be your best year ever.

What would you say if I handed you the simplest recipe ever to break bad habits and replace them good habits?

Would you say, "GIVE IT TO ME?"

First, you need to understand that you have etched your bad habits into your brain with years of endless re-enforcement. Your habits are so automatic that stopping is going to be difficult unless you distract yourself.

It's simple; decide what your new behavior is going to be and DO IT instead of the old.

If you didn't get to the gym this morning, go during lunch? Eating too much bad food? Then fill yourself up on good. Are you watching too much television? Take a walk or read a book.

All you need for success is to catch yourself just before executing your old bad habits and do something different. Do it enough times, and the bad habit will be gone forever.

Are you the type of person that can't decide what you would like to do with your life - or are just afraid to pull the trigger and go for it?

I get it.

It's scary to start something new, especially if you don't know how well you'll like your new lifestyle. That's why I always recommend trying new things on for size before committing. Just explore the possibilities and nothing more.

Instead of fully committing and charging forward at warp speed, why not take the fear out of it and see how you like your new experience first. If it's a keeper, just keep moving in that direction. If not, try something new.

The fact is, most everything you've ever done in your life happened because you stumbled into it and decided to stay - at least now you'll be doing it fully aware.

Wouldn't it be nice to improve the lives of every person you connect with this week?

When you understand that your "life experience" is made up of a series of "daily experiences" you instantly look differently at your power to impact others.

What happens at work, in the classroom, even at home with your family gives you an incredible opportunity to increase the influence you have on others.

Try this for the next few days.

Every time you find yourself potentially impacting another person, take a moment and think about how you might improve their experience by asking yourself a simple question, "What experience do I want them to have?" Then - create it!

Yes, if you think about it, you can determine the outcome in advance - and that's a sure way to improve every relationship you have.
