How a Child’s Game Can Help You Achieve Your Goals

When it comes to achieving goals, Gary Ryan Blair offers critical insights.  It’s a worthwhile read!

My children and their friends often play a game called Red Light/Green Light which RedLight GreenLighthas a lot of important lessons to teach both you and I.

One child stands at one end of the playing field, with the rest of the players at the other end.  The “it” child turns their back to the others and calls out “Green light!”  The players then run as fast as they can towards “it”.

At any time, “it” can face the players, calling out “Red light”, and the others must freeze in place (stop).  If anyone fails to stop, they are out or must return to the starting line.

So what exactly does a kids game have to do with you and your daily results?

Quite frankly–a lot, and if you stick with me on this one, you’ll learn a number of important things you can do to improve your overall performance.

Red Light–Stop, Green Light–Start

Whether it’s the first half of the year- month- or week- it is now history and this provides you with a wonderful opportunity to inspect your performance and to adjust behavior and strategy accordingly.
– I want you to look in the mirror and examine what you see.
– I want you to take a flashlight to your soul and examine yourself for commitment, integrity, and resolve.
– I want you to ask yourself what you must STOP doing right now, and what you must START doing with a massive sense of urgency.

Now I’d like you to do me a favor.

Actually you’ll be doing yourself a big favor.

Take out a piece of paper, draw a line down the middle and place the words STOP and START on each side.

Now begin to examine all of your daily activity, right from the moment you awake in the morning and determine exactly what you need to STOP and START DOING.

Your Stop list may include:
– stop hitting the snooze button
– stop checking email first thing out of bed
– stop being late for school or work
– stop operating without a clear plan
– stop eating late at night
– stop saying one thing and doing another

Your Start list may include:
– start exercising first thing every day
– start placing deadlines on all activities
– start setting a better example for my children
– start being more proactive
– start being part of the solution
– start making greater contributions in your meetings

Red Light Green Light is more than a silly kids game, it’s a simple and highly effective change management system that you can use to dramatically improve your results and achieve every goal you desire.

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
