You made it! You’re here at the end of another year, triumphant in someways, possibly a little battered and bruised by some recent events. You’ve done some big things this year, hard things and brave things.
You’ve made some good decisions that you didn’t have time to reflect on at the time, or know if it was the best decision. You did your best with what you had.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. ― A.A. Milne
Now is an important time to review and discover the truth of this quote.
Why? It’s encouraging, comforting and confidence-building – helping you step boldly into a New Year with a fresh and balanced perspective.
Ask yourself (with pen and paper) these questions …
(referring to your calendar, camera roll, social media and other records to remind you of what filled the year)
What did I do for the first time this year?
What have I improved in 2015?
Where did I go? What did I see and experience? Who did I meet?
Make a few comments about these areas…
The challenges? The things I learned?
A picture speaks a thousand words, and based on these images, I’m sure you can imagine I have much to reflect on :) Thank you to each one (pictured or not) who have been part of my 2015. I’ve learned so much from thousands of conversations this year!
At this time of year especially, it’s quite possible that we don’t see things accurately. There’s been that ‘rush to the finish line’ sense of deadline and some things might be finished well, and others lost along the way. We naturally remember the big impacts, especially the negative ones, but there are many moments from the year that are worth dwelling on, finding the learning from, and being grateful for. Over the last week I’ve been taking a few coaching clients through a similar process and their insights are amazing. I’ve done retreats at gorgeous venues, and face-to-face and phone sessions across the globe.
The boost in confidence and shift in focus and attention has ben breathtaking. If you want to go through this process with me (for as little as $200) and set yourself up for your best year ever, please contact me. If you’d like to share your insights, some of your journey and your exciting ideas, you’re always welcome to drop me a line.
Thank you for being part of my community in 2015. I wish you all the very best for 2016.
Cheering you on,
