How To Make 2012 The Best Year Of Your Life

Too often I focus on my mistakes and don’t allow myself to celebrate my successes. This post is different. Below are all of the successes I am celebrating this New Year’s Eve.

My Successes in 2011

How The Hell Do You Have The Time To Do All Of This?

The better question is why don’t you have the time?

My transformation into this lifestyle started after reading a blog post a lot like this one. I cussed out the author, made some excuses of why I couldn’t do it and then changed my mind and went outside and started running. This made all of the difference.

Image what your life could be like if you dedicated to make living your dreams your absolute highest priority?

THIS IS YOUR LIFE! You are not going to have another chance! Right now, you are sitting on your butt somewhere and reading about my accomplishments. Instead, you should be creating your own.

We are each on the same rock, circling the same sun. I don’t have any more time each day than you do. We both only have seven days in a week.

The only difference between me and you is that I know exactly why I am here. I have a very clear purpose.

So What Can You Do Right Now to Make 2012 the Best Year You Have Ever Had?

Stand up. Right now. Stop reading this post and go outside. Run, run as far as you can. When you get tired, keep going, walk if you have to. The distance isn’t important, the state of mind is the important part. This is your life, there is no second round. This is all you get. What are you going to do in 2012 that you didn’t think was possible in 2011?

    Congrats on the Ruby on Rails app. That was something I totally avoided until this year, too. Wish I hadn’t put it off for so long!

    I’d love to hear a couple of the ways you doubled traffic to your employer’s site.

  • Stunning post Danny!
    “You are not going to have another chance!”, of course you right!, no one of us is supposed to have another chance..another life to live..the time we have now is the only one we can modify..and the present, is the only time that matter..nobody knows what is going to happen tomorrow, and the only thing we know is that we are going to die one day..and thinking of that, should gave us the bravery to do what we like most..
    when I think about making a decision of doing something, I usually take this Virgilio (from Eneide) quote:
    “Fortune helps the bold”, and so I go on..
    I hope this quote, that is my fav one, could help you in your decisions as well, and make you a more inspired person, as you have already done for me with your posts..
    Stay great!

  • First of all, well done on all your achievements Danny! Especially your first; your book has made my transition into this extremely exciting industry less scary. It’s been my bible for the past 8 months. It is also such a coincidence that my first post on my website that I launched just yesterday was about taking stock of what I have achieved last year and what I set out to achieve in the coming year. It’s not a glamorous list as yours but I’d really appreciate it if you could have a read through it, if and when you do find the time: http://www.shaadhamid.com/blog/looking-back-at-2011-and-looking-forward-to-2012-2/
    Many thanks for sharing once again.

    You are way cooler than me! But thanks for the complimment! ;)

  • SO TRUE… One of my favourite sayings is that life isn’t a dress rehearsal for something better! THIS IS IT! Make it count!

    I’ve been in bed ill for 4 weeks now, and it’s driving me NUTS as I am very active normally, but I am using the opportunity to read books that I have always wanted to read, meditate and to catch up on the rest I dont normally grant myself…

    There should never be an excuse to waste any opportunity, even one that sticks you in bed when you prefer to be active and healthy!

    • I love that you are making the best of a obviously rough situation. Keep rocking :-) I appreciate the positive attitude :-)
