#214: Powerful Tips To Have An E.P.I.C. Year



It’s 2017, and an epic new year has begun! Every new year brings about the opportunity to start anew. It is a widely observed tradition to set resolutions, and for many, a new set of goals and dreams for the coming 12 months.

Many are talking about this, and while I certainly practice goal setting and planning, it is my supposition there are other factors at play to determine whether or not I will be successful in my new commitments and plans.

We’ll talk about that very thing as we discuss how to lay the foundation for an E.P.I.C. 2017!

Episode Summary:

  • As we begin another new year, I want to help you lay a solid foundation on which to build your preferred future. I am using an acrostic to illustrate my foundational formula, which I hope will make it easier for you to follow, remember, and implement. It is simply E.P.I.C.


E: Eliminate Excuses

  • No more …
    • I ran out of time
    • I was too busy
    • I didn’t have the resources
    • The other person did so and so

P: Posture Yourself For Your Next Level

  • Mindset
  • Relationships
  • Environment
  • Act like the person you desire to be

I: Imagine The Possibilities And See Yourself Succeeding

  • Visualize yourself …
    • Holding that book in your hand
    • Standing on that stage
    • Opening that business
    • Launching that foundation
    • Speaking in front of that audience
    • Influencing thousands of people

C: Confidently Commit To The Process Of Progress

  • The absence of confidence is timidity or fear; BOTH of which paralyze us from taking the necessary actions to create opportunity and progress
  • COMMIT to progress: steady movement in the right direction

Closing Thoughts:

  • Eliminate Excuses.
  • Posture Yourself For The Next Level.
  • Imagine The Possibilities And See Yourself Succeeding.
  • Confidently Commit To The Process Of Progress.
  • This is how you lay a powerful foundation for an EPIC year!

1.  Strategic Influencers Mastermind

The new year brings new openings in our next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …

Once you’ve completed the application, someone from our office will contact you to set up a short phone interview. Our desire is to serve you with excellence. The application process ensures you have all of your questions answered, and you and I are confident this group is a good fit for all involved. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
