Make 2021 Your Best Year Ever in 6 Moves
In The Queen’s Gambit, Beth Harmon, played by Anya Taylor-Joy is a very unlikely chess champion who spends the entire series dominating basically every other chess player on the planet. She becomes obsessed with the game. She’s either making moves or studying making moves. Which leads me to my question for you. What moves will you be making in 2021? How obsessed will you get about winning the 2021 game. And make no mistake, 2021 will be a game that will be played and will have spectators and players. Which one will you be?
Mark the words of Grant Cardone
Spectators pay players get paid.
Which one you going to be in 2021? Player right? And what kind of game will you play in 2021? Big game? Little game? That will be up to you. So as we go into 2021, here are 6 moves to make 2021 your best year ever.
ONE: Decide & Commit
You must make a decision to make 2021 your best year ever and then you must commit to make 2021 your best year ever. If you’re just hoping it’ll be a good year, it will be a year of disappointment and missed opportunity. Anyone who tries to sell you hope without giving you an actual solution is a scam artist. Besides, as GC says, “no one is going to come to your house and make your dreams come true.” Your 2021 dreams will come true because you decide they will and you commit to making them happen. Step one for 2021 is to decide it will be your best year ever and then commit to making it happen.
TWO: Screen For Cancer
Do you have any cancer or cancerous people in your life right now? What’s happening? Where is this cancerous energy coming from? Is there a friend, friends or family member that consume your good positive radiant energy? Are there people on social or is there a particular social media site that lowers your energy? When did you first notice the difference or problem? Who, what or where did it come from? Is it something that can change or will the person/people involved make a change?
There are two ways to treat cancer. Medicine and/or surgery. Can you treat this “non-evasively” or does this require a more aggressive approach? How long have you tolerated this and for how much longer will you? It’s time to eradicate the naysayers, the loafers, the offended, those who are overly committed making other wrong, the unethical, the people and media sources that try to convince you your limited because of your color, sex, ethnicity, religion, sexuality or anything else that makes you uniquely glorious. Anyone who tries to give you any type of label and then convince you that because of that label you are somehow incapable, have limited potential or are at some disadvantage know that that person in reality is the real oppressor and is not a true friend and it’s time to cut them out of your life.
THREE: Invest In Yourself
Grant says the three most important investments you can make are you, your business/brand and then assets that produce income. You are the most important you can make. If the goal is to make 2021 your best year ever, that will require you to spend time and money investing on making yourself the best version of you in 2021. Time and money. How much money do you spend on your car every month? Payment, insurance, gas, maintenance? How much time do you spend in the car? Are you spending more money on your car than your own personal development? Seriously? If the answer is yes, you need to adjust that ratio. Your car is a liability. You are an asset. Or are you? You should be… and at least you can be…
FOUR: Skill Up
Are you an asset or a liability? The way you become an asset is by getting better. You become an asset by training every day. Study your craft, practice your craft. Get better. Because if you’re not getting better, what are you getting? Worse. And look, if what you know up to this point has not yielded the results you want and deserve then the only option you have is to improve and skill up. Remember, we’ve made a decision here. 2021. Best. Year. Ever. You’ve committed to doing whatever it takes to make it happen. You’re investing in yourself. Now get uncomfortable and add skill.
FIVE: Get Attention
What will it cost? Making 2021 your best year ever. How much will that cost? How will you fund your targets, goals and dreams? Who’s got your money? Well for starters, strangers have your money and do you know what follows attention? Money. Money follows attention. All success requires attention. You can sell a customer if you don’t have their attention. You can’t get known in a marketplace without attention. You’ll never reach your true potential flying under the radar. It’s a losing proposition. If people don’t know you they can’t do business with you and if they’re not paying attention to you, you can’t sell and close them. 2021 demands you get known, out of obscurity and that you get attention. Period.
SIX: Win Or Learn
This is the mindset you must adopt in 2021. Every day you will either win or learn and sometimes both. There is no losing in 2021. Win or learn. You pick. But you’re not allowed to lose in 2021. You can’t lose because we’re making moves to make 2021 our best year ever. This will be your daily debrief. At the end of the day, before your head hits the pillow, ask yourself the following questions:
- What happened today?
- In what ways did I win?
- What did I learn?

This is what’s required. Are you in?
