Give yourself a new year reflection instead of a new year’s resolution.
As the year closes behind you and a decade is marked in history, take the time now to reflect on all you have accomplished. Most people begin a New Year reflecting on their goals. You might be doing the same thing.
“What will I accomplish this year?”
“How much more money can I make?”
“Where do I want to travel to this year?” And on and on…
What if I told you there was something more important for you to do right now. “More important than setting new goals, you say”.
Before you begin to reflect on all you want, take a few minutes to reflect on all you already have.
The promotion you got on your job or maybe you got a promotion to another job (thats a great way to look at change).
Maybe you are like most people and when one year closes you live in anticipation of the new year coming. Yet, there is value in taking time to reflect on the year that has pasted. Time gone does not need to be time lost.
Whatever you have done this past year, celebrate. But most of all, treasure the new you. You are better today than you were yesterday. You have accomplished things that others never dreamed possible. No matter how small the win, it is a win. Even if you saw failure, you have a win because you have learned.
We Need Each Other
As you reflect back and look forward, believe in yourself. Give yourself the courage to do the things that your heart desire yet your mind cannot conceive.
In 2020 you are not the person you were in 2019. You are wiser, stronger and braver. Resolve to be braver than you ever thought. Because you are!
Remember the people that made a difference in your life. There are most likely some you need to reach out. Some you need to give thanks too because they helped you in some small way.
Listen to a thankful message.
Now, let me take a moment to thank you. Thank you for all your support, encouragement and strength. You read my articles, listen to my youtube videos, attend to my workshops, and comment on my posts. For this and more, thank you!
Reflection Takes Time
So now it’s your turn. Take your time and congratulate yourself right now. Your new you will thank you for it.
After your time of reflection on all, you have done and most importantly all you have become, look forward and tell the New Year, “Get ready, I’m coming to get you!”
Remember to take time to help others accomplish their dreams. And always take time to give thanks for all those who believe in you and your dreams.
