Making meaningful life changes for many of us is an extremely hard thing to do. From quitting drinking or smoking, to stopping negative thoughts or gossiping, to losing weight, to increasing our patience, spirituality or income,
it takes a total commitment on our part to make a change and stick with it. Radical change = a radical commitment.
I have seen a dramatic shift in my life and my business coaching clients who have used the outline below to help them to manifest the change they desire. And I want you to receive the same benefits they have. Take a moment to print this document, fill it in, sign it, and send it to me with a self-addressed, stamped envelope ( David Essel, 2477 Stickney Point Road, Suite 121-B, Sarasota, FL 34231 ). I will sign it as well and send it back. Accountability is everything when looking to accomplish new goals.
Attack the one change in your life that has been the hardest to accomplish. If you're in sales, maybe that's making 10 cold calls/day, five days/week. Do it! Go after the biggest challenge you are facing to see the biggest benefit to your life. Here is a sample contract to help you get started. And, oh yeah, there are financial incentives to help you stay on track.
Sample Contract: I ( name ), from this moment forward, ( date ), COMMIT myself to ( 10 cold calls/day - one drink/day - walking 1 hour/day, 7 days/week ). For every day I accomplish this task, ( $10 ) goes into a glass
jar that I will place on my kitchen counter to be used in a positive way at the end of 30 days ( i.e., a massage, tennis lesson, etc. ). For every day I miss my goal, no excuses accepted at all, I will write a check for ( $50 ) to a
charity of my choice. I commit to this contract and will do whatever it takes
to make this life change.
I have found the $10 reward and the $50 penalty check to be an effective
place to begin. Try not to go below these figures. For added incentive, you
can increase these dollar amounts to $50 reward and $100 penalty.
Now, fill in the Contract below, print, sign and send it to me as mentioned above. Keep your copy out for everyone to see. Let your friends know about your goal and your commitment to success. Get them involved too, by passing this Contract out to as many people as you can. Let's all change for the better, today.
