Do you remember playing the game of tag as a child? If it’s been a while, don’t worry—there’s a new, improved version that can be played anywhere at any time. This game of tag relies more on the ability to control or direct your thoughts and emotions, because how you think influences how you act, and how you act ultimately determines what you get as a result.
You are the sum of the decisions and choices you have made so far in life. Right here and now, you can begin to create your best self by taking personal responsibility for everything you’ve thought, said or done up to this point. The other option is to play the “blame game,” as if someone or something else was responsible for your current situation. To improve any situation, whether it’s physical, emotional, financial, relational or spiritual, you must first take full personal responsibility for everything you think, say and do every day.
The first step in this process is to identify what areas need improvement. Take an honest assessment of your life, your health, your business, your relationships, your spiritual life, etc. Review the following items listed in the categories. Chances are that there is something that can be improved upon in each of those areas, right now—today!
Next, rank the items in terms of urgency. For example, you might truly want to volunteer, but are currently dealing with a health issue that takes precedence. After you have ranked each item, create a separate master list of your items in order of importance.
Now you’re ready to “play.” Continually review the items and consistently think of ways to improve. Place a checkmark in the “THINK” box.
The next step is crucial: apply the action necessary to improve the situation. Simply thinking about getting leaner will not produce the desired result. We have to get out of bed or off the couch and do some physical activity! Place a checkmark in the “ACT” box.
You will be amazed at the results you achieve by following through with this process (place a checkmark in the “GET” box)!
