Why Willpower Alone is NOT Enough – Set Your Strategic Plan for 2016

Research has shown that the enthusiasm and new-found willpower that comes with New Years lasts through January 17, after which point people downsize their dreams for the year. 

Well, here we are on January 18 – do you still feel as passionately and strongly now as you did on January 1, 2016?

If not – I’ll bet I can pinpoint the reason why…

It is because environment and ecology trumps willpower every time.

Being driven and motivated, and determined and all those other hard-charging mindsets and states of being are not sustainable without the right support structure (your environment).

So if there are some structural changes that need to be made to better support your goals and dreams – this is the time to identify them and make fixing those a top priority.

Last year right around this time I realized that my environment living in Berkeley, CA was no longer serving me…and in fact was inhibiting my next level of growth.

I knew that if I moved to Las Vegas, recruited a bunch of my healthy, entrepreneurial friends and got a big house where we all live and work together that my environment would be supportive of my next level of growth.

And guess what – It worked! My business nearly doubled and I published 10 best-selling books 🙂

So what is it for you?

Well today and tomorrow I have two special trainings that you can attend at no cost where we’ll focus on the strategies and mindsets you need to have sustaining success this year

Today catch me on Breakthrough to Online Success in 2016 where Vanessa Halloum interviews me and a couple other entrepreneurs with successful online businesses – The interview is live right now. Check it out!



Then Tomorrow I’m hosting a Live Training on Setting Your Strategic Plan for 2016 at 2:30pm PST.

A couple weeks ago on the kick-off call for The Author to Entrepreneur Experience, I lead this exercise in preparation for the year-long journey we’re undertaking together.

Now I’m excited to share this power exercise of getting clear on your strategic plan for the year, as well as identifying 5-6 key indicators that you can track to measure your progress.

I’ll be using my Strategic Plan for 2016 for Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press as a live example.

Strategic Plan for 2016 - 2

Join me tomorrow Tuesday, Jan 19 @ 2:30pm PST for Setting Your Strategic Plan for 2016 <= When you register you’ll receive the planning exercise as a downloadable Word document

Let me help you solidify ambitious, but realistic plans for 2016 – the kind you will actually achieve because they take into account your environment and support structure, as well as the externally visible goals like making money, getting clients, selling books, etc.

To your success,
