"If you want something new, you must do something different today ... you should always be planning for what's possible. Diligence, planning, knowing what you want -- these are what it takes to get to a better place. Opportunities swirl around this planet constantly. I'm sure that if each of us felt we deserved the best, we would believe more in ourselves, and in others, and in all that's out there to share, and we would reach out for a handful of that opportunity."
- Loral Langemeier
  "Necessity makes even the timid brave."
- Sallust
At the beginning of each month, I ask myself a lot of questions about the month, prior.  I would like to invite you to do the same!  Powerful, desired-outcome questions can help you meet your goals.  The rationale is to continue to do what is working, and assess where you could have done more.  Did you accomplish as much as you expected to?  Why or why not?  What are you most proud of?  Where could you improve?  What are you looking forward to?
Write down in a notebook or journal the answers to these questions.  Consider these areas:
1) Physical health and fitness (diet and exercise)
2) Financial wellness (income, savings, investments)
3) Spiritual growth (meditation, prayer)
4) Mental health (thoughts, attitude)
5) Career
6) Relationships (family, friends, colleagues and associates)
This is not a time for lament, but rather a time of reflection and new resolve.  Try it!  Today really is a brand new, start.
"February is the month that I ____________."
The wonderful opportunity you have today is to actually design what you desire to see happen over the next 28 days! Get the picture rolling from your heart, to your head, onto a planner, and then off of, your planner!  Take the steps and knock out the objectives that will manifest all of your monthly goals.
How will you fill in the blank?  Would you be willing to commit to it?  Being committed means that you expect to change your life for the greater and are open to experiencing exponential success.  Take a moment before day's end and complete your monthly mission statement above.  It won't take a lot of effort.
The Next 337 Days Could Change Your Life!

But, focus on the next 28 

Take a few minutes to write down several specific targets that you intend to hit by February 28. These goals can address your diet ... your weight ... how frequently you take time for you ... perhaps your resolve to mentor a youth or open a savings account. Whatever they are, they should be challenging attainable, and "monthable."  Identify exactly what it is that you will accomplish. Write it down. Then, make a commitment to see the manifestation this month.

If you intend to enjoy a phenomenal year of health and wealth, take it a month at a time. You won't believe what you can accomplish in just four weeks. And, your success will create momentum for the year to come.


The First Step to Acquire
Writing down exactly what you desire, is the first step of "acquire." On paper, in a journal-whatever works best for you -- write down what you truly desire and attached a "by when date."  Stay committed to this outcome. 
Putting your goals on paper and using crystallized details will help you create the exact picture in your mind.  It provides the exact specifications for what you want to accomplish. The more desirable qualities you add to the goal, the greater will be your satisfaction when you acquire it.

Who is Saitia Faaifo?

Saitia Faaifo is "The Motivator From Hawaii." And, this year he became a first-time author of the book, The Riches of Respect.  Check him out! 


Three Ways to Make Time for You!

1. Identify the specific days and exact times during your week that you will have fun or engage in relaxing activities. Mark it in your planner just as you would a normal appointment.
2. During the course of your day, complete a task, then do a fun activity. Keep alternating but make sure you get what needs to be done, done.
3. Delegate.  There almost always is someone who you can ask or assign your tasks to.  Utilize all of your resources.  People are honored with the opportunity to serve.
Be Distraction-Free
Avoid the opportunity to be distracted with life's incessant challenges.  Choose to keep the focus on your goals. Your dedication to your desired outcome has tremendous power and will connect you to it in record time.
P.Q.s: Power Questions
P.Qs. -- or Power Questions -- are used to introduce your mind to new information and options.  They are intended to shift your paradigm, thoughts and beliefs ... towards the greater.  Ask yourself these three, empowering questions.  Then, immediately follow up with specific, supporting action.  The action you take serves as a catalyst for change that can transform your life and create a healthier, wealthier and more vibrant, you!
