Happy 2017! What are you going to do to make it a great year – both professionally and personally?
I am deeply grateful for all the success that I was able to achieve in 2016. Personally, watching our teens study abroad and having major growth experiences has been unbelievably rewarding. Business-wise, I exceeded the ambitious goals I set this time last year. As proud as I am of having “put my butt on the line” every day and achieving goals with our clients, I also feel some fear as I begin another year. This fearful voice sounds something like: “can we do it again?” Each year is a blank slate and carries no guarantee of success, even when the previous year was monumental.
For 2017, I enrolled in Tony Robbins’ Platinum program as both a reward for achieving last year’s goals and to keep myself highly motivated and engaged for the future. As much as I am a big fan of Tony’s and have learned a ton from his content, my main reason for investing in this membership is to surround myself with 199 other successful entrepreneurs. This illustrates one of the concepts I learned from Tony, which is that Proximity is Power. The point is to surround yourself with people who challenge you to be your best – I feel this way when I am speaking to a group of very successful law firm Directors and CMOs! I also see this concept playing out in how my 16-year-old daughter feels driven studying abroad, surrounded by peers from all over the U.S. who were brave enough to leave their homes for a year and take on the unknown. They all took the plunge together, and are supporting and inspiring each other to grow and learn!
I wish you a wonderful 2017 and encourage you to think about the people you surround yourself with. Are their actions and values providing you with high standards for excellence and inspiring you to be your best self?
As you may know, I have been setting goals every year since 1989. Should you be interested in setting goals for 2017, I hope you find this goal setting packet of value.
Thank you for setting high standards of excellence for Wisnik Career Enterprises and inspiring me to do my best work every day. If there is any way we can help you to achieve your goals, please let us know!
