There is some gold to be mined during the Holidays in discovering your keys to success in life. For most of us, the normal routine is gone. It disappeared during the Christmas. And it was good. Now we have entered that twilight zone.
What is the twilight zone? It is a time and place where the rhythm of business, life or both has changed. For most, it is a time where things have slowed down. If you have children in school you will not get to enter the twilight zone until after they go back.
The twilight zone is a time for reflection and evaluation. It is a time, with the coming of the new year, to take stock of who you are and where you are at. It is a time to reflect on what has been and what is to come. It is a time of transition as we move from a Holiday mode back into our normal every day routines.
One of the keys to success, whether you are a self-employed business owner, entrepreneur, solo professional or an individual, working or not, is to enjoy and learn from your time in the twilight zone. Think about where you have been for the past year. What have done? What have you accomplished? What would you like to change? What do you want your future to look like from this day forward?
This last question: What do you want your future to look like from this day forward, is the most important. Without a clear vision of the future it is a challenge to have an exciting present. Whether you are seeking small business growth or more in your personal life it will be hard to achieve without a clear vision of the future.
One of the keys to success in life is to enjoy the time in the twilight zone. It is a time for us to think. It is a time to plan. It is a time to get renewed in our energy and outlook. It is a great time to do success planning for our businesses and lives.
Most importantly, the twilight zone affords us the opportunity to do the one thing that will have the most significant impact on our lives. It gives us the opportunity to change our thinking.
Of all the keys to success, changing your thinking is the most important. When you change your thinking it has a ripple effect throughout your business and life.
In changing your thinking you will change your habits.
When you change your habits it will change your activity.
When you change your activity it will change your results.
And, when you change your results it will change your life.
Take advantage of one of the keys to success, your time in the twilight zone. Take the time to reflect and evaluate. Change your thinking and it will change your life. Wishing all of you a happy and prosperous New Year and that you find the keys to success that you desire in your business and life.
