The New Year is officially here. I hope you’re excited about 2014!
I want to make sure you make this year incredible. I also want to make sure you begin to get your love life in shape this January. I’ve put together something I really want you to go through that’s designed to help.
If you haven’t got my 2014 guide to love…

If you’ve had a ‘false-start’ and feel like the first 5 days of the year haven’t really gotten off to the amazing level of change you wanted, don’t worry, let’s begin TODAY.
New Year’s is a time when people expect a lot from themselves. It’s also a time when we feel pressure to change and upgrade our lives.
I believe there are 3 big mistakes people make in the New Year that are very often made worse by the advice we’re usually given.
1) Taking On Too Many Resolutions
People take on a huge number of resolutions to try and justify themselves in the New Year. In doing so they take on a level of change that’s not sustainable.
The key to change at the beginning of the year is the same key to change at any other time…
Making a 1% shift.
Our lives are changed more by the one routine we stick to than the ten new ones we fail to take on.
Pick a change that you know you’re going to stick to, as in sticking to it you’re going to gain momentum in confidence, which will drive you to making even greater change as the year progresses.
2) Making New Year’s Out To Be The Only Chance For Change
We shouldn’t have the psychology that we can only create change in our lives at one opportunity of the year.
We should think of the New Year happening on the first of every month so that we have twelve times throughout the year to stop and re-evaluate our lives.
3) Thinking A Small Failure Means Absolute Failure
There’s a dumb way to fail, and there’s a smart way to fail.
The dumb way is giving up on a resolution just because one small thing went wrong. The smart way is to decide that a little hiccup is an anomaly – and not the rule.
For example, if you made being more sociable your resolution, in going out and not talking to anyone new for the first hour, just tell yourself it’s okay and that ‘failure’ is part of the process. You can still be sociable the second part of the night, and get straight back on the horse.
Question Of The Day: What one 1% shift are you going to resolve to make this January?
I can’t wait to hear how you get on with it!
