(Free Download) From Resolution to Action to Success
Imagine yourself on vacation, one year from now. You've successfully upheld all your resolutions, and 2018 was the most productive year you've ever had...
Your personal growth was unlimited, your business has taken off like you'd only dreamed of, and most importantly you're able to go on vacation and reflect on your successes.
For a moment, lets take a step back. What would have transpired between then and now to allow you to feel happy with your progress? What would make you believe that you had made the right decisions?
Lets zoom out even further. What we just saw was the accomplishment of your goals. Accomplishment can be fleeting, however.

- Conscious Incompetence:
Here, you are aware you don't know. This requires practice.
- Conscious Competence
- At this stage, you know that you know. This is marked by consistency.
- Subconscious Competence
- The final stage, the skill has become automatic. This level would be referred to as mastery.
