3 Things you need to Crush 2014!


I’m gonna make this short & sweet.  Ready?

There’s 3 Things you need to Crush 2014.  Here they are:

  1. A crystal clear understanding of what you want to achieve (most people get this wrong)
  2. A passionate desire and burning WHY that inspires you to massive action
  3. A plan of action that points you to HOW you’re going to achieve your success and when

Now… could it really be that simple, Shawn?  Yes.

… and No.

First up, a lot of people think they are clear and WHAT and WHY, but in my experience as a Master Life Coach, even if people think they know what they want, they’re really selling themselves short most of the time.  Then, there’s the whole other side of it that I’ve talked about in other posts – your subconscious mind and the limiting beliefs there that are very well holding you back.  That said, let’s just say that they know the WHAT and the WHY.  Most people just don’t know the HOW (hint: the fun is in finding out!)

Now, here’s the thing: if you fail to come up with a plan of action within about the first 2 weeks of the New Year…

…you’re probably setting yourself up for failure. 

UGH, right?  The good news is that if you start now, you can totally bow your own mind with how quickly you can build momentum and see the formation of successful habits.  Which equals results. Yes, you can change, no matter how old you are 😉

If you start now, within the next 100 days or so…

…you’ll be pretty much on par to do EXACTLY what you set out to do… times 10!

Sweet, right?  That’s the power of an action plan.  As my boys would say, “Like a boss!”

Okay, hold up.  You might be saying to yourself, “That’s all fine and dandy, Shawn, but what if I’m one of those people that really does know the WHAT and WHY… but not the HOW?”

Simple.  Hire me as your coach!  That’s a no-brainer, right?

In all seriousness, those I work with experience tremendous transformation – in their finances, their career, relationships, their spirituality and life purpose… and so can you.  But, don’t worry, this isn’t some sales pitch.

If you’re unable to work directly with me, here’s where you can start.  If you’re SUPER clear on you’re WHAT and WHY, then grab a pen and paper.  This is mind-mapping. 

  1. In a simple statement, write whatever that goal is in the center of a blank page.
  2. Now, draw a bubble around it.
  3. From there, draw out several “spokes” that lead to other bubbles (we’ll call this the first layer).
  4. Inside each bubble, write down the any ideas that pop into your mind.  It doesn’t matter right now if you’re actually gonna do them or not, just write ’em down.  Yeah, the shitty ones, too.  Why?  See the next step.
  5. From each of these bubbles, draw more spokes.  Attach more bubbles (the second layer).
  6. Now, allow the ideas that you wrote down in the “first layer” to generate new ideas in the “second layer.”  Let this be an intuitive process.
  7. Keep building layers until your entire sheet is filled up.
  8. Now, pick your top 6 ideas and take ACTION on them.  Do it!

Okay.  That’s where you can start.  What about the rest of the steps?  Well, as long as you are willing to takes MASSIVE action, the Universe (or God) will support you and start to hand you the next steps, as necessary.

So that’s where you can start.

You now have the 3 Things you need to Crush 2014.

  • Mind mapping is so powerful!!
    Especially when you bring in the awareness from your authentic intuitive self!
    I am going to do one today – as I have MUCH ahead of me that needs a little extra clarity!
    2014 – TBA – the best year yet!

    • Agreed… I originally learned mind-mapping as a tool for writing. Now I find it to be an amazing way to tap into the subconscious – our link to our authentic self as you pointed out. I find it really useful whenever there is an issue that is somewhat overwhelming and we just don’t know what to do. It’s something that even helps potential clients manifest the money they need for coaching sometimes!

  • Thank you so much for the feedback! I’m glad you enjoyed it and you’re very welcome. By all means, definitely share it with your room mate – and anyone else that you think might be interested! By the way, what part resonated with you the most? Would love to know! Cheers
