2011 was fun – if you like screaming at the top of your lungs, knots in the pit of your stomach and wishing you could just throw-up so you could get over that queasy nauseous feeling of stress
and frustration. I’m choosing to get off the roller coaster this New Year!
So what’s going to make 2012 any different? One thing I know for sure, the only thing I truly have any control over is ME. Being a reasonable and rational thinker, I have deduced I need to
up my game if I expect my 2012 to be robust, prosperous and full of opportunity that I act on. So here goes. This is no time for playing small, shrinking back or making excuses. I choose to compound the upgrades I make in my life, like interest compounds on investments (remember the good ole’ days)?
So here’s my plan. Daily I will make upgrades in the way I live my life – my thinking, feelings,
beliefs and actions. AND I will make note of these changes. What a concept! Now, here’s the
compounding part. I’ve started a list, as of this morning, and it’s hanging on my refrigerator.
Every day I will notice and document at least three areas of my life where I’ve either: upgraded
my thinking, feelings, beliefs or actions; stepped out of my comfort zone and pushed my own
boundaries; or simply changed my routine and broken the pattern of doing the same old things in
the same old way at the same old time.
IMPORTANT – Each day I will read what I’ve accomplished and then fill myself with gratitude
and awe at my continuous growth. I will REALLY take in every upgrade, big and small. Just like
that investment, when you leave your investment IN … it compounds and then compounds
When January 1, 2013 rolls around – I predict that I am grateful that I have:
1. Leveraged my strengths and accelerated my performance
2. Navigated through uncertainty by trusting myself and my intuition
3. Enjoyed experiences and opportunities that exceeded my expectations … then I acted on
them with excitement
4. Fully expressed my genius and applauded others as they stepped into and expressed theirs
5. Found new ways to expand my mind, my heart and my circle of influence
6. Been me … no apologies or excuses!
7. Remained fluid, open and adaptable to possibilities
8. Caught and called myself on my own “BS” – then quickly focused on what really
9. Cultivated new friendships and enthusiastically expanded existing ones
10. Remained in constant gratitude!
Football players, especially make-or-break field goal kickers along with punters and snappers probably have one of the highest stress jobs in sports. Imagine: once a kicker enters a game, he is expected to hit it squarely through the uprights. Every time, only getting one chance. Imagine if your job was like that – jump into a meeting, say the absolute right words, and create a new sales deal. Stressful, right?
Now, pro and college-level football kickers, punters and snappers have an elite consulting team to help them master the physical and mental conditioning aspects of their game. Top football kicking coach specialist and former NFL Special Teams Coordinator Coach Gary Zauner and ELITE Performance Expert Deborah Dubree announce that they have aligned their service offerings to bring top-level consulting and coaching to college-level and pro-level football kickers, punters, snappers and special teams players.
