How do you want your future to turn out, do you want to be average or exceptional? If you continue to allow your life to be dedicated to leisure, I am certain that your future will be average and unfulfilling. If you want your future to be exceptional, then it is time to devote your life to learning and development. As you commit to expand and grow, aspiring to gain new knowledge and skill at every turn, new horizons will open up to you every day, the person you become and the success you will attract, will astound even you. Always prepare well and practice hard, as the quality of your daily practice will determine the calibre of your performance.

Stop waiting for your circumstances to be perfect, your energy levels to be ideal or things to improve in your environment, before you proceed. 2012 is the time for expansion and growth, it is the time to stop waiting until you get enough energy to proceed, it is the time to proceed and succeed, so that you can acquire the energy you need. Nothing is more energising than the feeling of satisfaction that comes from finally having the courage to pull the trigger and begin taking the action you know will help deliver your dreams.

Once you have pulled the trigger and begun travelling down the path towards the super achievement you desire, promote your success and allow your self-expression the freedom it needs to set your talent, ingenuity and creativity free, so that you can begin to explore all the possibilities that abound. Manage your energy effectively, as you explore all these opportunities and carefully select only the best ones to completely devote all your energy and time to exploiting. Prioritisation and focus is the only way to succeed, stop trying to explore too many opportunities at a once, focus all your energy and available time on one opportunity at a time and give everything you have to it.

Work hard every day, applying enough daily discipline to everything you do and stay committed to apply all the new knowledge and skills you will acquire along the way. True mastery and sustainable success, is the result of focused effort and consistent daily work. Consistent daily Industry, prioritisation, clarity and discipline are the cornerstones of super achievement, should any of these crucial elements be missing, you will be left spinning your wheels and achieve very little next year.

Move your focus away from turning your labour into money in 2012 and rather view your efforts as an opportunity to help as many people get what they want. The more people you can help get what they want, the more everyone around you will help you to get what you want. This small shift away from money and self-interest towards, service and giving, will see you achieve far better results in 2012.

Be authentic and always be true to your real self. Speak your truth even when you feel that no one supports you. Acting in alignment with your authentic self and ensuring that your efforts are aligned with your purpose and vision for the future ensures that you remain true to your values. When you act in alignment with your values, you will subconsciously support all your efforts. When you do anything that is not aligned with your values, you will subconsciously sabotage all your efforts.

Surround yourself with great people in 2012. You mirror the behaviour of the people you surround yourself with; you eventually speak like them, act like them, read the books they read, dress like them and achieve the same level of success as them. Strive to surround yourself with more successful people and your own level of success will improve in 2012.

Stop allowing your fears to turn into self-doubt. You are amazing and will achieve greatness in 2012 and beyond, if you would just dare to dream, have huge expectations and follow the few recommendations described above. You have so much to gain, what are you waiting for?
