If you're like us, you're sick of making New Year’s Resolutions every year, only to fall right back into your old habits. We decided to break that cycle by taking on a
different challenge every month.
We call each challenge a “Brick.”
Rooted in psychology, these habit-forming Bricks push you to grow outside of your comfort zone and rise to new elevations.
The term ‘Brick’ jumped out at us for multiple reasons. As you know, bricks are used for building structures. We often hear the phrase, “one brick at a time,” which aligns perfectly with what we are all doing in this group.
Strong, long-term, healthy habits are not built overnight.
Inside the group, we will teach you all about the science of habits so you can tap into your habit cycle and create the life you want.
Each month of 12MR has a carefully chosen theme, but you get to choose your own “Brick.”
This allows for flexibility in choosing the right habit or challenge that fits your needs.
Remember, we'll be doing a different theme every month and you’ll be choosing your own Brick -- for a total of 12 Bricks.
We thought that 12 bricks is nice, but what if we focused on one big challenge throughout the entire year as well?
You don't have to focus on it every day, but you make progress towards it each month.
We call it a 'Block.'
Don't worry, we'll be checking in on your progress throughout the year so you don't forget about it. How do we do that? 👇
Here is a video made by the creators of the SELF Journal that dives deeper into how it works!
Hi! My name is Lara. I'm 27 years old, an Austin native, and Fort Collins transplant since this last April.
I've been a vegetarian for 11 years, love staying active, rescuing animals is my passion, and won't ever say no to a glass of red wine.
I grew up in a household where making resolutions and goals for the New Year was always something discussed around November/December, and as I got older continued the tradition with myself.
For a couple of years, moving out of state was on that list, and now that I accomplished it, I've felt lost in terms of what to look forward to in 2019.
Recently, I've had urges to alter my career path, and I’ve felt antsy, unmotivated, and lacking direction. I realized that no one is going to fix this for me except myself, and finding what it is I want to tackle next is something I'll have to look for through trial and error.
I approached Miles with The 12 Month Rise idea because I knew he's experienced similar feelings, is dedicated, and by reaching out to him I challenged myself.
I met Miles in 8th grade and wasn't sure if he'd want to rekindle a friendship as adults--but you never know unless you try!
Clearly, he agreed, so I think that means I gained an old/new friend, which at this age is difficult and rare.
So thank you, Miles, for joining me on this journey to discovering our strengths, weaknesses, and new personal development. I can't wait to see what 2019 has in store!
Nice to meet you! Like many, I went through school, graduated with a marketing degree and then worked 3 jobs in 2 years, two of which were hell. I knew I wanted WAY more out of life so I started exploring a more entrepreneurial route.
I built a couple little passion brands, started a little marketing company, met a bunch of cool people, and learned more in 1 year than I did in my entire college career.
My world consists of marketing, writing, getting out of my comfort zone, getting into nature, learning, growing, traveling, creating, and helping people find their sweet spot.
I was born in Austin, Texas and currently live in Fort Collins, Colorado and am pursuing my vision of changing the way our education system works.
Every December I start to get excited for a new year, a fresh start, an opportunity to elevate myself to new levels. Every year, I start out strong then slowly fade right back into my bad habits.
When Lara approached me with this idea, I was all in right away. I thought, “Let's get others on board!” And so, 12MR was born.
I can't wait to meet the amazing people who join us and I’m even more excited to see where we’ll all be in 12 months.
The official start date is January 3rd, 2019!
We will be prepping you for the countdown and making sure you have all the tools you need to have your most transformative year.
