The Power of Coaching

At the time of this newsletter, the amazing Coxless Crew, coached by Best Year Yet® and New Level results coach Andrew Duncan, arrived safely, if exhausted, in their destination point of Cairns, Australia after rowing 1/3 of the world's surface in a 28-ft. boat named Doris. This special post by Best Year Yet® and New Level Results coach Simon Teague looks at their amazing feat and how coaching with Best Year Yet® helped this audacious dream come true.  The crew has now set two records as the ...

Finding Your Thermal Lift

In our aim to achieve our Best Year Yet®, a close knit circle of supporters and allies can be critical. This may take the form of family members, friends, and coaches. I propose the simile of storks preparing for long-distance travel. As they leave the ground, they fly wingtip to wingtip, watching one another, for the one that hits the thermal: the one that lifts the entire flock to higher air and saves energy for the long voyage....

Get Rid of Your Rear View Mirror

Lately, I’ve been distracted by my rear view mirror. I can’t get into my car any more without glancing at it and recalling a passage I recently read in a book called Miracle Morning by Hal Erod. In it, Hal says one of the most crippling causes of mediocrity in life is a condition he calls Rear view Mirror Syndrome (RMS )....

Save a Life Today - Your Own

My partner has a saying that helps me keep myself from getting caught up in the stress, drama and weighty-ness of work situations – “We’re not saving lives here.” It’s a great reminder that I don’t need to put too much stress on myself over the little things. Since I have stepped into my role at Best Year Yet®, I have a different perspective on that saying....

Beyond the Moment of Change

  Those of us who have created our Best Year Yet® plans are familiar with the phrase The Moment of Change. This moment happens after Question 4 of our 10-question process that leads to the one-page plan for the year. When we identify our most limiting belief about ourselves and release the energy that has held us back from reaching our true potential, we experience a moment of change. ...

Let Your Light Shine

When I learned that this series of Best Year Yet® articles was about the shift from a self-centered reality to one devoted to helping those around us and beyond, this idea of serving others rang true for me. For me, service offers a heart-centered experience, one that comes from our willingness to give our gifts and talents in unconditional support for the highest and best in another person....

Unmasked

  On the last day of 2011 when I took stock of the year, answering the ten questions within the Best Year Yet® system, I uncovered a surprising limiting belief that needed inquiry. While on the fourth question, a new insight caught my attention and made me rethink my approach. The question is, “How do I limit myself and how can I stop”?...

Making Dreams Come True at Natalie’s House

In 2010 I had the privilege of meeting Janet Olsen, Founder and Executive Director of Arizonans for the Protection of Exploited Children and Adults (APECA).  It’s an organization that mobilizes people and resources in the fight against sexual exploitation and abuse. Together we created her first Best Year Yet® plan for APECA, and she continued to use Best Year Yet® for a second year on her own with the support of her Board of Directors. The results have been amazing and many lives have been ...

Impossible Dreams Do Come True

On a rainy afternoon 5 years ago fifteen members of the Aspen Executive Service Corps participated in a brainstorming session with a youth services organization called YouthZone.  The question Executive Director Debbie Wilde posed: “Should we take what we’ve built so far and expand its reach to youth services organizations throughout the U.S.?  If so, how?”...

Are You Ready for a Change?

One thing I know for sure is that we are more powerful than we know. We are created from greatness, a source of help greater than ourselves with the strength, courage, and faith to live empowering and fulfilling lives. Yet when we forget this truth we give life a different meaning, one of struggle, hardship, limitation and uncertainty.  Fortunately, there is good news. Regardless of one’s circumstance in life, help to change is always available. When we’re willing to ask for and accept help, we ...
