I am so excited about 2023 and all that’s possible for all of us. I’ve been hearing from many people who are trying to decide what they really want out of 2023. I can tell you that I too have taken some time to reflect upon my life and decided to focus only on what’s true and valuable for me. I believe there are 4 major areas we all should focus on this year in order to make 2023 our best year area. I want to share them with you today.
1. Master Who Knowing You Are. Knowing who you are is key to being successful. Because until you know who you are, you are not free to choose what you really want. And you’ve heard me say that “Your pain will never heal, until you heal your mis-placed sense of identity.” Nothing you achieve or acquire in life will make you happy, until you are happy with who you are.
2. Master Your Health. Mastering your physical body is key to success in life. Let this year be the year that you make your health most important. My friend Micheal Bootcamp Thomas has a very simple formula for maintaining your health. He says, each day, consume 8 servings of fruits/veggies (smoothies), drink 8 glasses of water, get 8 hours of sleep and move the body. This is a great start. Develop a plan for ultimate health in 2023. No matter how much money you earn or how successful you become, you will not be able to fully embrace it without good health.
3. Master Your Relationships. Learn the keys to creating great relationships. Communication is one areas that we really need to grasp in our relationships. It does not matter whether the relationship is business, family, friendship, or romantic, you need to up level your relationship skills. We are relational beings and understanding how to relate and live in harmony with each other must be our priority. It does not matter how much material gains you have, without people in our lives to share it with, will leave you miserable and unhappy.
4. Master Your Money. It’s been said that money is the answer to all. I don’t believe that money should drive us. But I do believe money gives us access. Access to all we need and access to help others who are in need. Money becomes a tool to do great work in the world. Money releases us from the stressors of life’s essentials, such as shelter, food, clothing, and more. The late Jim Rohn once said, “Hurry and get money issues out of the way so that you can attend to what’s important.” There’s nothing more stressful than money problems. Make this year, the year you will heal your money blocks, barriers, and beliefs, so that you can live an abundant filled life.
It is my hope that 2023 becomes the year of your dreams. Today, we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King. A man who’s dream continues to light our path in this world. His dream and the fulfillment of his dream has out lived him. Let’s do something that will out live us. Dr. King understood his assignment in the world. It’s time that we understand ours.
