As we move through December, many of us begin looking ahead to the New Year. This is a great time for dreaming, identifying goals and setting resolutions.
Your business is important to you and deserves dedicated time for reflection and strategic planning. So set aside the time to identify ideas and activities that will make a lasting impact in 2018.
Start by looking back and reviewing 2017. Identify the areas in your business where you excelled and achieved … evolved and experienced breakthroughs. Enjoy this opportunity to acknowledge your strengths and the times you were willing to step into your greatness. Even if you fell short of your ultimate goals, in what areas did you move in the right direction?
Next, and with self-compassion, identify the areas of your business where there is room for improvement. Where would you like to do better or feel more confident? In what areas would you like to step up to the plate more frequently?
As part of this exercise, I’d like you to consider how we all have emotional baggage that we’ve been carrying around for a long time. Some baggage is heavy and weighs us down. Some baggage is light and provides so much positive support for our dreams and aspirations, that it almost carries us!
As you create your vision for 2018, consider the baggage you choose NOT to carry with you into the New Year. Some examples:
Now, identify the baggage you choose TO carry with you into the New Year. This is baggage that supports your success! Some examples:
I find it helpful to write out the intentions.
“I choose not to carry procrastination into 2018!” “I choose not to carry fear of failure into 2018!”
“I choose to carry a positive self-talk into 2018!” “I choose to carry the courage to act into 2018!”
Remember, your courage to choose wisely will come from your commitment to personal development. I recommend that you also write out your intention to pursue a daily personal development practice.
“I choose to embrace personal development. I easily find the time today and every day for my personal practice!”
Don’t just randomly travel into the New Year. Choose your baggage carefully! Step into 2018 purposefully, with solid convictions, inspired dreams and joyful optimism.
