This is an invitation. I am inviting you to do something other than make a New Year’s Resolution.
I am inviting you instead to make a New You Transformation. You know, the transformation into the “you” that you want to be, could be, and should be. You know, the “you” that you have been waiting for. The “you” that you have kept us waiting for.
This is the invitation you have been waiting for.
You are invited to think bigger than a simple resolution. You are invited to think about who you want to be in every area of your life. I am inviting you to make the decision to change everything that needs to change. If what you are doing now could get you the results you wanted, you’d already have those results. If what you are doing isn’t working, this is your invitation to change it.
I am inviting you to transform and reinvent yourself. This is an invitation to become the best possible version of yourself. This is an invitation to swap small, linear improvements for exponential growth. This is your personal invitation to finally go “all in” on going “all in.” Throw down the gauntlet. Cross your Rubicon. Take your place.
It’s your right and your duty to reach your full potential, even though you can’t imagine what that potential is, and even though no one has ever reached their full potential. This, however, is your invitation to try. It’s your invitation to be the first to ever do so.
This is an invitation to do what you have heretofore been afraid of doing. It’s an invitation to step into and through your fears and see who is on the other side. This is an invitation to meet the you that you want be, the one who lives just on the other side of that fear. It’s an invitation to put yourself at risk, giving up the comfort and the security that are the chains you have bound yourself in.
This is an invitation to stop doing what you feel you must do, even though it has you locked in place, like your feet are set in concrete. If what you are doing no longer serves you, set it down. If it never served you, let it go. This is an invitation to leave behind everything that needs to be discarded. You are invited to move forward without carrying anything that isn’t going to serve you on your new path forward from here.
You are invited to fail. You are invited to get many things wrong. You are invited to take missteps, to go the wrong direction, to go back over ground you’ve already covered, and to change direction until you find your way. I am inviting you to persist over time. With enough time and energy, all obstacles eventually yield. The overnight success you will become 10 years from now starts today. This is your invitation to start.
New Year’s Resolutions are made and discarded in a matter of days. Transformations take time. They require real change in more than one area. This is an invitation to change everything, to put your plan in motion, to take the first step, followed by 1,000,000 more steps, on your way to becoming who you really are.
You are a big, bright, shining star. You’re invited to share your light with us. You might not see it yet, but we do.
• Who will you become in 2017?
