#66: Another New Year ~ What Will You Do Different? [Podcast]



Nothing Changes Until Something Changes!

Another year has come and gone, and with all of our ideas, plans and even dreams, WE have to change if our results are going to be different than 2014. So many people can imagine themselves out of debt, healthy and at an ideal weight, making more money, owning THAT house or vehicle, or starting that business, YET, so many struggle to make the necessary internal changes that bring about lasting and positive results.

The issue is not the WHAT, and sometimes it is not even the WHY. The real issue is that WHAT WILL YOU DO? The real issue is are we willing to make necessary changes, adjustments, re-arranging our priorities, applying discipline, structure, coaching, counsel? Are we willing to SHIFT our ways, so that we can SEE the change we desire? Someone once said, we have to BE the change we desire to see.

In this episode, I want to challenge you with this idea: It’s Another New Year ~ What Will You Do Different?


Real resolution REQUIRES corresponding and subsequent ACTION that causes the desired change to occur.

Here is a PROCESS I want to suggest that will help you gain clarity on what it is you want, and what steps you need to take to achieve the results you want in life.

  1. Pray … Ask your Father to open your eyes so you can SEE what He desires for you


  1. What do you want to look different ONE YEAR from now?

  1. Ask yourself the following questions for EACH
  • Do I really want this? Is it really important?
  • Is it aligned with my purpose and God’s plans for my life?
  • If yes, by what date do I commit to reaching this mark?
  • Can I reach this goal doing what I am presently doing?
  • Can I achieve this desire with my current resources, education, or relationships?
  • Does my present environment help me or hurt me in aspiring to these results?
  • What do I need to change?
  • What do I need to do?
  • What accountability or structure do I need to move towards this vision?
  • What can I do TODAY to begin?


  1. Take Action TODAY


  • Identify ONE or TWO changes, steps you ca take immediately and START
