The Importance of Starting Positive Change Before January 1st

This is How You Become a Massive Role Model

Every year without fail, people all over the world insist that they will change their lives, starting on January 1st. I know that I’ve been guilty of that for more years than I can remember, and quite frankly — — it’s pathetic!

The fact that we think that we are going to magically become a version of ourselves that we’ve either never been or haven’t been in a long time just because the calendar decided to flip to a different month and year is more hilarious than President Trump thinking that he won the election.

Here’s the deal, starting before January 1st is the real boss move. You’re bound to feel better mentally just knowing that you made the commitment to start before that non magical day that we all think is magical.

I have vowed to launch my podcast, write and publish a book, publish 100 articles in the month of December, launch my email list and a new web series between now and the last day of 2020.

It’s December 1st, and I have yet to do any of that.

Why am I committing to starting before then? Because it gives me a psychological edge. It reaffirms in my mind that I did these huge, intimidating things while it was still the present year.

Waiting until January 1st is what average people who usually end up deluding themselves do. Plus, it puts too much pressure on what we are trying to accomplish and we don’t need that.

Also, I have found out this year that momentum is a powerful thing and I don’t want to take that lightly. I’d much rather be off and running before the new year arrives so that I will already be knee deep in achievement and ball out with even crazier accomplishments in 2021.

That will also give me a great (true) story to tell people. It allows me to inspire my followers, fans, readers and whoever else to encourage them to establish an extreme belief in themselves that they did not previously possess.

Let’s do this!
