[This past Saturday was] Groundhog Day, and whether or not that furry creature sees its shadow, it marks the midway point of winter — a time to be sure you’ve planted the seeds of all that you want to bloom come this Spring.
But the day really reminds me of the fabulous movie starring Bill Murray, who wakes up over and over to the same day with a chance to make things right each time. He ultimately makes the best changes to himself that attract Andie MacDowell, and they live happily ever after. It’s a good time to reflect on what you are doing every day that is help move you closer to or further from your goals. As Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”
So what do the Grammys and Lady Gaga have to do with any of this? One year ago you probably never heard of her [remember this PGG was from 2010!], yet on Sunday there she was, the opening act performing with Sir Elton John, on the biggest night in music. Overnight success? Never. From an early age Gaga figured out who she was and what she was supposed to be doing with her life. And with a clear vision, talent and determination took steps every day to get there.
I don’t know much about her journey, but one thing I will bet on is that it was INTENTIONAL, as everything about Gaga is. Anyone who was nominated or performed at The Grammy’s would have that in common, in varying degrees.
Wondering what success looks like for you? Take a little time to figure it out, and once you’ve identified it, use that clarity to find a way to get there — and give me a buzz should you need some help along the way. No matter what you want to do, make your life about it, morning, noon and night and you will see some amazing results day after day after day…..
