To take a step towards anything, you must step away from something.

To go anywhere, you left somewhere.
To get ahead, you left something behind.
To achieve a new thing, you left an existing thing.

This is how change works.

Looking Ahead to 2022

As you consider the new year and all you want to do, the places you want to go and the person you want to be, consider this as well:

Ask Yourself…

  1. What is limiting your path?
  2. What behavior is holding you back?
  3. What do you need to stop or step away from?
  4. What do you need to quit worrying about?
  5. What needs to be left behind?

Getting There

I want to get there. I am a wired goal-driven, Type-A, achievement-oriented human being. I want to win. You may be that way too.

But whether you are or not, I imagine we both intend on being better, doing better, going further, and getting some things done next year.

We have 2022 in our sights now, and we’re going to make it a GREAT year!

And I want you to achieve all that you want to achieve along with me.

And for that to happen, to begin taking meaningful steps towards those things, something is likely going to need to be left behind.

Explore that idea, Make that list

So what is it? Let’s figure that out and include a bit of a “leave behind list” with our 2022 intentions. This will be one big step towards achieving our 2022 goals. Remember…

To take a step towards anything, you must step away from something.

Buckle up and let’s start stepping together.

Let Go and Let’s GO!
