Almost a decade ago my life changed when I read Jinny Ditzler's book Your Best Year Yet.

At the time I was struggling in my real estate development business and had not yet cracked into my speaking business. I read this book on the front side of a new year on the recommendation of a dear friend.

Rather than quickly flip through, I read it like it was a workbook. Pen in hand, I took notes, answered her 10-Questions and in doing so created a one-page plan to attack that year. 

I had great success and this year, I decided to walk through the same process with my team. We did so back in December and it was fantastic! So much so that we asked: How do we share this amazing, simple 10-Step process with the Live Inspired community?

Friends, today, I am thrilled to have Jinny on the show, literally walking each of us through this life-changing plan step by step. Can you believe that? We are lucky!

I am so touched that I get to share the gift of Jinny coaching us through how to make 2017 our best year yet.

Jinny will remind us of the "indestructible goodness and immense possibility" within each of us. This podcast will set you up with a one-page plan to make 2017 your best year yet. Here we go!

"This will give you a clear way to "cut your way out of the fog" through concrete commitments."

Here are my key takeaways:

  • The premise of Jinny's book Best Year Yet: You have the answers to achieve your success and well being.

  • Through the book, you'll answer 10 questions that will result in you outlining how you'll achieve your success this year

    • Questions:
      1. What did I accomplish last year?
      2. What were my biggest disappointments last year?
      3. What did I learn? (Uncover a motto for the new year, turning negatives to positives: Be grateful. Not 'Don't be ungrateful.')
      4. How did I limit myself? How can I stop? What's getting in the way? What are your limiting beliefs?
      5. What are your values?
      6. What roles do I play (no more than 8)?
      7. What role is my major focus in the new year?
      8. What are my (specific, measurable) goals for each of my roles?
      9. What are my top 10 goals?
      10. How can I achieve my plan (my top 10 goals)?
  • This will not be HARD. You just need to have discipline. 
  • Set monthly goals. Keep score to make sure you are moving the needle.
  • Get a life coach or an accountability partner to hold you accountable and talk about the progress you are making on your plan.

Jinny Ditzler's Live Inspired 7 

1. What is the best book you've ever read?

 The Tibetan Book of Living & Dying.

2. Tomorrow you discover your wealthy uncle shockingly dies at the age of 103; leaving you millions. What would you do?

I'd take care of myself and my family where we don't feel fully cared for. Then I'd find people up to good and invest in them.

3. Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be?

My laptop.

4. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be?

Mom. She's not with us anymore, but she was an angel. 

5. What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Where there is a will there is a way.

6. Looking back, what advice would you give yourself at age 20?

Relax. 

7. It’s been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read?

She cared deeply about others and committed her life to showing them how to use the best that's in them.

Let's move our focus from the cold winter to where the sun is shining: Spring!

One of my favorite parts of spring is March Madness. I love sports, I love baseball and I love the race to the final game (especially when the underdog wins). 

Most importantly, after the final game, I love when they play the Luther Vandross song, One Shining Moment, while showing the highlights of the best plays from the entire tournament. They tie it all together and today, I am going to do something similar for you. 

On today's episode, I'll recap each of my guests from Season 1 and my main takeaway from each. So many great tips on living inspired. Here we go!

  • Susan O'Leary [my mom, author, speaker, mother, Christian leader] Mom  helped me kick off the season talking about life, the fire that change everything and her insights on resilience, faith, family and redemption.
     
  • Brian Buffini [business owner, speaker & author] He shared the question his grandfather asked when reviewing work for the family painting business: "Can you put your name on it?" If the answer wasn't yes it had to be fixed. That tangible work ethic is the foundation of Brian's success today.
  • Teri Griege [author, ironman athlete, cancer survivor] Addiction and cancer threatened her life; grace, endurance and hope gave it back. Teri will remind you what is TRULY possible when you stop making excuses.
  • Joe Buck [World Series sports announcer, son of my hero Jack, author] Had his his first interview about his new book Lucky Bastard with us! He shared about being the son of my hero, the greatest gift he received from his daughter which offered us all a reminder that: Perspective truly matters.
  • Michaela Haas [author, journalist, fellow sojourner] Her book Bouncing Forward was my favorite this year covering a life-changing topic: "Post traumatic growth."
  • Rory Vaden [bestselling author and self-discipline expert] "Discipline becomes dormant in the absence of a dream; so DREAM BIG." And SO MANY amazing nuggets like this one.
  • Dave Ramsey [bestselling author, nationally syndicated radio host] You do not want to miss this opportunity to hear Dave on the other side of the microphone! He shares amazing humility, humor and financial tips.
  • Kathy Buckley [author, speaker, comedian, overcomer] She is a model for keeping joy, humor, determination and passion for people through life's tribulations. As a deaf comedian, she has garnered special tools she shares with us to improve our own relationships and lives.
  • Don Yaeger [9 time bestselling author; journalist] Wrote 25 books, many nonfiction about some of the biggest names in sports history. Don shares the biggest lessons he learned from these legendary people. 

  • Rachel Macy Stafford [NYT Bestselling author and founder of Hands Free Mama] Shares beautiful lessons about setting aside daily distractions so that you can have your best life today. She asks us a poignant question: How will you redefine your success for yourself this year?
  • Tom Ziglar [Son of Zig, bestselling author, podcaster, CEO of Ziglar Inc.] Tom will walk you through the "zombie cure" or sleep walking through life.

Today's guest is former St. Louis Blues Hockey hero, Gino Cavallini. You'll love hearing the live reunion from my ON FIRE book launch party. [Watch the video.]

I am so honored to have had the opportunity to introduce you to these amazing people; true examples of living inspired. Season 2 starts next Thursday and you are going to love the guests we have lined up! Make sure to subscribe, rate & review wherever you get your podcasts.
