Remember being at the beginning of 2017 and so excited about the new year? It’s a fresh start. You can hear the excitement in your voice. You’re gonna rock this year!
Life hits you by February… March… June… August… November…
And you ask yourself, Where did my excitement go? I thought I was gonna rock this year!
In January I sat around a group of high level achievers at the Hutton Hotel in downtown Nashville, setting goals for the new year. Man, I was pumped! I flew home, ecstatic about the goals I’d set and ready to rock things. I can’t wait to tell you about the rest of the trip.
My score was awesome..
The first day of the Best Year Ever Live conference with my friend and mentor, Michael Hyatt,, we were asked to take a Lifescore Assessment prior to the first session. My score was awesome!
I scored an 81. Yes, I was operating at the Success Level. I was on top of the world, pounding my chest and Tarzaning my way through the world.
Then.. life… hit.. really.. really.. Hard..
By May I was in the hospital. By August I didn’t know if I would be able to pick myself back up. My 34th birthday came and went in September, and for the first time in a long time, I was struggling to stay excited. For those of you who know me, I love my birthday!
But God… He got a hold of me in October, pulled me back out of the pit, and opened my eyes to the truth that He’s never done redeeming us.
One day during some reflection time, I decided to retake the LifeScore Assessment. I wanted to know if it had changed much. It was worse than I thought it would be.
I’d gone from a 81 to a 59. I was no longer operating at the Success Level. I was operating at the Frustration Level. Dang right I was frustrated. Frustrated that I still had 2 months left to make 2017 my best year ever and I wasn’t taking advantage of that.
I hadn’t hit my book reading goal. I hadn’t hit my weight loss goal. I hadn’t hit my spiritual goal. But I realized something.. I could stay frustrated that I only had two months left, or I could get frustrated enough to actually do something about it.
Do something about it, I did.
Here we are in November, and I recently took the Lifescore Assessment one more time, just one month later. My score? A 76. I went from Frustration to Success in 30 days.
What could possibly happen in 30 days that could shift the number that much? Focus. Resetting. Recharging. Hope. Drive. And refusing to allow the words “Frustration Level” to define me.
I decided to dig my heels in and get back to the goals I wanted to achieve. I’ve spent more time reading in the last month than I have in the last 3 months and it’s been awesome!
I’ve dug deeper into my relationship with God and His Word is rocking my world!
And for the first time in months, my physical health is getting back to a great place. I’m only 11 lbs. from my weight loss goal and we’ve still got one month left in 2017, baby!
What is your score?
Where are you at in life? Where do you want to be? You can take a few minutes and get your assessment. You’ll be glad you did.
Michael is offering the assessment again this year for a limited time, and for FREE. Like many assessments, this one is self-administered. It provides you with the opportunity to rate yourself in each of life’s major domains.
You read a series of statements that describe specific situations and pick the one that most closely aligns with where you perceive yourself to be. Then you refine a bit based on your unique situation.
The tool then calculates your score in each domain, adds them together, and gives you an overall LifeScore.™
The whole process takes less than ten minutes. It will give you the clarity you need to create the life you want. Once you discover your LifeScore,™ you can quickly see opportunities for growth and what is working well.
Don’t miss this opportunity to discover your LifeScore.™ It’s fun. It’s free. And it will give you the clarity you need to start making progress in the areas of life that matter most.
