“New Year’s resolutions rarely work, because good intentions don’t often survive a collision with reality.”
Avoid the vicious cycle of failed resolutions by consciously creating a cycle of success. A cycle of success is what will help you avoid those unpleasant “collisions with reality” to which Seth Godin refers.
In thinking about my own successes and failures this last year I began to see a pattern. With each success I completed a cycle of 5 practices at least once, sometimes more than once, for the same intention or goal. I call this the “Cycle of Success.”
Check out my post Creating a Cycle of Success to learn more about these steps and how they can help you ensure a successful 2013.
