Hello, Sunshine (Great opportunity to go public with your goals)

Later on this week or early next, I’m going to have some cool announcements, so stay tuned.

I hope you had a great holiday and I hope you and your family have a really smooth 2012.

Like most people, I spent a lot of time at home with my own family during the last couple of weeks.

My sons are older now so they’re not around much, and it was nice to catch up with them.

I also went up to New York City for a couple of nights.  I spent one day with some very old and dear friends — guys I grew up with and still keep in contact with on a regular basis.

Oh sure, we’ve had periods of time during the last 35 years or so, where we lost contact, but it’s been far more “on” than “off” during this time.

And I don’t know about you, but for me, these are some of the best relationships you can have.  The level of comfort is EXTREMELY natural and you don’t have to worry about what you’re going to say or how someone’s going to take it.

I’m sure you have a friend or two like this as well, right?

Sure – so you know exactly what I’m talking about.

I also spent one day in the city alone with my older son, and we had a GREAT time.  I’ll try and put up some photos soon.  This kind of adventure-like alone time with your kids, is a great experience.

We saw a concert at the Beacon Theater, had excellent seats, and ate great food all day long… overall – a real blast.

But now… it’s back to reality.  It’s the New Year and we’re all busy cranking up our little machines once again, right?

You bet.

For me, maybe this is unusual, but my goals aren’t business related.

And here’s why:  I’ve found, when I’m in shape – and when I’m consistently working out and training hard… that virtually EVERYTHING else in my life, is working.

I don’t know why this is, but I think it has to do with my level of confidence.

And as you know… your level of confidence — your belief in yourself — governs the outcome of virtually EVERYTHING you do.

So while I can sit here and tell you I’m doing X, Y, and Z… the truth is, unless I’m training regularly and eating right and taking care of myself, NOTHING I do is going to work for me.

So I’m going on the record with something I recently heard.

A guy I read about, took up a 100-day challenge last year.  His goal was to simply “get moving” for 30 minutes a day, for 100 days in a row.

This is my goal for the first 100 days of 2012, as well.

And since I live here in Florida – where it’s 42 degrees right now (a little cold for us!)… there’s really NO reason why I shouldn’t be able to do this.

So even if I don’t get to do cardio in the gym, after I lift… I am going to at least walk for 30 minutes, or ride my bike, or do something that gets me moving… 30 minutes a day for 100 days.

Because I know, if I take care of myself in this area… everything else will fall into place, very naturally.

If you’d like to make yourself accountable for your goals or tasks or anything you plan on doing this year, then post them on my blog at the end of today’s post, and I’ll follow up with an update on my progress, once a month.

And this way, you can do the same thing.

Either way, I really hope you get a lot of good things this year.  Things you’ve always wanted and worked hard for… things you’ve always dreamed about… and things you deserve.

The last few years have been tough for all of us – but this is life, right?

We have up cycles and down cycles, just like the moon and the waves and… well, women!

And remember, whether you think you can, or you think you can’t — you’re right!

So post your goals here – at the bottom of this post – and we’ll go back and talk about them during the year.

Now go sell something,  Craig Garber
