The Next Challenge

Today, I am beginning a new personal challenge.

In an effort to build on the momentum, confidence, and personal growth generated by recently fulfilling my goal to write a blog post every day for 365 days in a row, I am now pushing myself to crank it up a notch and dig a little deeper.

This year, from June 1st 2012-June 1st 2013, I intend to write a blog post every day for 365 consecutive days again, while reading a new book every week for 52 straight weeks (thanks for the inspiration, Julien), and also authoring a new book every two months.

So, on this day of next year, I will be able to celebrate having written 365 blog posts, read 52 books, and authored 6 books of my own.

Why am I doing this?

Because it scares the heck out of me to commit to something of this nature and I believe that a little fear and discomfort can be very good for one’s evolution.

Last year, I had no idea how I would be able to keep writing day in and day out, but I found a way every day without fail. From my own wedding day to the day I went to the emergency room for a hernia, I seized opportunities when they arose and I made them count.

In doing so, I discovered something about myself: I realized that I am capable of much more than I could’ve possibly imagined. I witnessed the creative power that can emerge from within when one holds himself publicly accountable to the achievement of a desired result.

This year, I wish to do that again. I wish to discover, in an even deeper way, what will happen to and through me as I dive into a previously unexplored realm of learning and creating.

What kind of person will I become as a result of facing this challenge? How will it transform me? What new things will I be capable of? These are the questions that excite and drive me.

Why am I announcing this to you?

There’s something about declaring an intention out loud that makes my subconscious mind take it seriously. If this is really an intention of mine, then there’s no need for me to play it safe and keep it a secret “just in case I fail.” I’m not here to just merely talk about traveling, I’m going to take the next step and actually buy the plane ticket. This blog post is my version of buying the plane ticket.

I hope you join me because this year I intend to fly high and I could always use a little company.

As Zig Ziglar was fond of saying, “I’ll see you at the top.”

    I have considered doing a ‘one year commitment’ thing but I guess I’m chicken. I will think deeper on this today.

    And on the books … do we get to see/read them, too?

    I wish you the best – I trust you will not only succeed but you will also have a fun time, most of the time.

    1. Thank you and Thank you and Thank you!!! One year commitments can be a lot of fun, so if you decide to do one, I hope you enjoy the heck out of it. The short answer to the book question is “yes!” I don’t know if they will be published every two months, but i’ll keep you posted on when they are out there 🙂 Thank you dearly for supporting me. Let’s have some fun with life! Cheers 🙂
