5 Days 5 Minutes Change Your Life Challenge

Wow, so much has happened since I first started this blog. I hardly celebrate my accomplishments but the past few years have taught me that I need to. I am worthy of crlebration! So, here goes ūüôā

1. I moved my blog over to arichandsatisfyinglife.com (please check it out and grab your free Create A Plan for Your Life download). 

2. I wrote a book called Get It Started Get It Done.  You can find out more about it here: Book info

3. I am a contributor to the Huffington Post (read my post here). 

4. Because I have had so much personal growth I’ve created a 5 days 5 minute Change Your Life Challenge. It’s going to be amazing and you can learn more about it here: Challenge info

Thank you so much for encouraging me on my journey. There’s so much more to come. 


I Want Change in My Life but…

Wow, wow, wow!¬† Does the title of this post sound familiar? As you read this are you having a conversation with yourself about why right now is not a good time for you to change your life? Do you have so much going on in your life right now that you can’t possibly add one more thing? You want to change but…

I know this conversation very well.¬† It’s one I’ve had with myself many times.¬† There’s a quote that described me perfectly,¬† “You can’t wait for all the lights to turn green before you leave home.” This was me.¬† I wanted all the conditions to be right before I could start doing what was necessary to bring about the change that I wanted in my life. If this sounds like you, I want you to know how wrong I was, and how wrong you¬†are too. Everything is not ever going to be perfect.¬† If you want to see change in your life you are going to have to start right where you are, amidst the chaos, the turmoil, the out of orderedness.

You see, the “but” represents the¬† excuses¬† that you make for not moving forward in your life.¬† Until you make the decision to remove the “buts”, you will never see the change that you want in your life. Remove the “buts”, make the decision, do something that will bring you closer to the change that you want to see in your life.

I’d like to hear what step you are going to take to bring about change in your life?

The Winning Formula

If you’re anything like me, and hopefully you’re not.¬† You do not like following “formulas” that have lots of steps.¬† Seriously, does it really take all of that to achieve an outcome?¬† Let’s find out.

I rebelled at following the winning formula for decades.¬† Surely I can leave out a step or three, create my own formula that’s not as intensive.¬† There has to be an easier way.¬† This may have been my mantra for a while.

Here I was stepping into a new venture, a newbie.  I had my mentors, the people that I wanted to model.  The people  who were winning in their respective arenas.  But, I, a newbie, figured I could tweak their model and do things my way, the easier way, straight out the gate.

After many unsuccessful tries at doing things my way (yes, I really am that stubborn) I finally had the realization that people follow a formula because it works.   Yes, it really does take doing each and every step of the formula if you want to win, if you want to achieve your desired outcome. Successful people really are those who do what others do not want to do.

I’m following the models, step by step.¬† I’m learning to embrace the formula.¬† Instead of looking at it as a thorn in my flesh, the formula has become an asset.¬† My partner in my new ventures.¬† I have found the winning formula and I’m not letting it go.

Is there something that you’re embarking upon or are afraid of starting because the process seems too tedious.¬† I want to encourage you to give the formula a try.¬† One step at a time.¬† I know you won’t regret it.¬† I’d love to hear what you’re getting ready to start.

Be Inspired!
