Welcome to "Where do you need to grow this year?" Applying the CSC's is a surefire way to transform your life from the inside out--to gain true freedom, abundance, and peace regardless of your circumstances. The CSC's are being calm, surrendered, centered, connected, and complete. Calm involves having room to breath, room to think. When we're anxious, our reasoning brain/creative problem-solving shuts down--which means not only are we stressed but everything becomes harder and more time-consuming. Surrendering to God means aligning with the way He designed our lives to work. It's truly entering the slipstream. Like being in an ocean current, things become easier and take less energy because we're doing them with the power of the Holy Spirit. Being centered means living out of the essence of who God designed you to be. It's doing the things that make your heart sing and involves making sure the important things in your life get done first. Being connected has to do with both our relationship with God and our relationships with others. We're designed to live in community and without that connection, we can't engage in our callings and we'll be lonely and miserable. True connection requires being your authentic self and making time to be with others. Complete involves utilizing your entire self, being fully present in the moment, and engaging with what is actually happening around you. It's easy to get caught up in our own personal version of reality or to be trapped in the worry-regret spectrum. When we're complete, we are more effective because we're dealing with what's actually happening. Plus, we have true freedom from worry and regret.

Like anything in life, if you don't know where the problems are, you can't fix them. The quiz below will give you an idea of where you're at with applying the CSC's. You can make 2018 better than 2017, growing in freedom, abundance, and peace! Regardless of your results, remember that baby steps are the road to lasting growth. You don't have to change everything at once (and you'll backslide easily if you do)--1% improvement!
