A center piece of the Personal Best philosophy has always been our Student Creed. As the New Year begins and you have had a chance to rethink and refocus, here are a few commitments that may help. They are ACTIONS STEPS, inspired by the four sentences that start every class. In fact, they are taken literally off the walls of Personal Best. Sometimes the answers we are looking for are right in front of us.

10 Days Can Change Your Life…. Will You Take the Challenge?
One of the things that I miss about college is the feeling of accomplishment and sense of completion you got from finishing a semester. After finals, the classes I was taking were over, never to be revisited again. The next semester would start fresh with new classes, new schedules, a fresh outlook and a renewed commitment to do my best. As the calendar turned to the new year, I got the same feeling of completion, renewal and commitment to be the best possible version of myself.
To make any meaningful and last differences requires the commitment to a refined way of thinking. One of the modern day masters of influence and human behavior is Tony Robbins. Tony has always shared an empowering message of being personally accountable for your actions and outcomes. I graduated from Tony’s Mastery University Program back in the late ‘90s and it remains to this day one of the most powerful learning experiences I have had. At the program Tony shared something he called the “Ten Day Mental Challenge.” Like most things, it is easy to talk about, but extremely challenging to do. The benefit of accepting the challenge lies in something Socrates said, “Once a man’s mind is stretched, it will never go back to its original shape.” Once you feel how people and situations magically change around you when you change, you will become addicted to this new way of thinking. As you start your year with the commitment to be your best, read though the challenge and see if you are committed enough to fully embrace the 10 Day Mental Challenge
