  1. Great question to ask ourselves all the time Steve. There should always be the next step to reach for because that is what self-motivates me to keep my focus.

    What will I do differently in 2011?

    I am turning my coaching business into an affiliate program this year. I have been wanting to do this ever since I started my coaching business. The problem has always been that there was nobody to look to for ideas based on what I wanted to do.

    So I decided this year I would be the first to go forward with my idea and concept, and I will do any fine-tuning that may need to be done along the way.

    There is just so much need out there for what I offer to people. So having other coaches working with me will allow me to reach out to more people than I can ever do on my own.

    As an affiliate program, my clients will now be able to refer others to this coaching program. In doing so, they will earn money to pay for their own coaching, and in some cases, become another stream of income for them. Those who wish to become coaches on my team will also be able to set up their own coaching program if they ever wish to do so. This is what I call total freedom!

    Very excited about the future!

  2. Hi Steve,
    Lets try this again. What I would attempt if I knew I could not fail would be to create a massive marketing funnel, based on the needs that people will be facing with the financial crisis that is upon us.
    It would take alot of research on my part to be prepared to meet the needs of various people.
    I like to think of it like that old fashion ball game where kids throw the ball in the big opening at the top, and the ball can exit at any of the various shoots below. I would like to have a variety of solutions available so that it would not only create multiple streams of income, but do good by helping people through these tough times.

  3. My philosophy is: As long as one keeps trying, progress is inevitable. I will continue operating from that idea.

  4. Hey Steve,

    I accomplished one of my top goals in 2010 and of course it left me wanting more.

    2011 I will make the next rung in my primary company. Learn to enjoy no’s and then see how many I can get.

    Thanks for all you do and have a great 2011.


  5. Hi Steve, In the race between the turtle and the hare, I am definitely the turtle. However, as I plod along, I realized that the greatest thing I did last year was think about mental toughness as a concept and then find your blog – I bought some of your CD’ I know for a fact that I have a greater degree of control over my thoughts and actions that I ever believed possible. With this powerful concept, I intend to focus my energies like a laser beam on my goals for my busines, personal, and financial development. With this kind of focus, people and resources seem to appear out of nowhere and I have come a long way in the past 6 months since I found free Thanks Steve, and Dawn and all the best in 2011.

  6. Hmmm…. what would I do in 2011 if I knew I couldn’t fail…

    My plan for 2011 is to spend my time working on my skills in order to perfect my craft with every ounce of determination, drive and work ethic it takes to become successful, not only for myself but for the benefit of many others along the way.

    2011 is filled with overflowing abundance for ALL of us. I agree with you Steve. I’m going for it! What have I got to lose?

    Those who will go for it, will spend their time working to become successful and their efforts will pay off because they refused to be lazy. Not meant to be a slam on anybody, but the truth is the human race is inherently lazy. We all are. Myself included.

    Those who succeed will be the ones who pass up the LazyBoy at the end of a 9 to 5 day, and those who, in the words of Nido Qubein will beat their “opportunity clock” by 10 minutes every morning vs. hitting the snooze button a few times after the alarm clock has gone off.

    Every day is a new opportunity. Those who will succeed in 2011 will be the ones who wake up and recognize the many opportunities that awaits them each day, and then, with a grateful heart, they will go out and seize those days. One right after the other.

    Personally? I’m GOING for it! I’m planning on having 100%, nothing but the best, pure success in 2011!

    Carpe Diem Baby!!
    Who’s coming with me? What have YOU got to lose?

    Happy Prosperous New Year 🙂

  7. Happy New Years Steve & Dawn
    Dawn I am still keeping bees and often smile when I am working with them because of the warm thoughts of your reaction in class.

    What would I do if I could not fail? Or What will I do without fear of frailer?

    Complete my Masters Program, start and complete my Executive Coaching Certification, start my Holistic Coaching Business incorporating horses, contact Dawn to complete my video coaching and love my family and friends unconditionally.

    To honor God and have a positive transformational impact in those I come into contact with.

  8. I will start my speaking career in 2011. I love to speak in front of an audience. I have spean tht elast 2 years in Toasmasters and now I ma ready to move to another level.I will finish my book by the end of January 2011. I love helping people get their lives back physically and public speaking will allow me to touch many more lives. Thanks for the motivation.

  9. Very timely and inspiring video Steve and a wonderful question we should all address. My plans are to re-locate back to Australia and join the speakers circuit. then I intend sometime in the year to meet up with you and Dawn.
    You guys have been such a help to me mentally and in your training. so there’s my main goal and I will persist until!! I wish you and yours a really wonderful New Year and see ya in 2011 cheers John

  10. What would I do if I could not fail?

    Physically: I’d be starting point guard for the L.A. Lakers
    Why Not?: Well, I’m at 5’7″, out of shape, and everyone knows white men can’t jump!

    Option Two:
    Compete in a Triathlon Fall of 2011

    Mentally: Read two books a month
    Financially: Cash flow $500,000 in 2011
    Spiritually: Give and help others more

    Why not? No reason, just comes down to a decision. Which has already been made.
    I’ll keep you posted and my wife is keeping me accountable.
    Appreciate what you do!

    Most Grateful,

  11. Dear Steve and Dawn

I’m looking forward to next year and your continued motivational support coming over the airwaves…..keep it up in 2011 and we’ll be moving ahead with our dreams and goals ……have a Happy and great New Year …..I lift my glass and toast you and dawn for being role models to these seeking a higher thinking …..paulene

  12. Steve,

    my goal for 2011 is rather simple: close my restaurant and make enough money as a professional speaker to sustain my family. I know, sounds easy, but being at the very beginning of a speaking career it will take a lot of hard work and determination to pull it off, but then, easy targets are no fun. Somebody defined happiness as the overcoming of non insurmountable problems. Being an optimist, I intend to be very happy next year.

  13. Great question! Worth asking ourselves often.

    In a recent interview with Jeremy Bloom (three time world champion freestyle skier, three years as an NFL football player and has build two enormous businesses in the past two years during the great recession, since retiring from sport) he said when asked about failure “I love ……… setbacks” he didn’t view them as failures. He viewed setbacks as a chance to solve an equation that others couldn’t or wouldn’t, so he loved them. Then went on to say “I have failed more than I have succeeded.

    How’s that for mentally tough!
