Winter is here and 2017 is right around the corner.
You’re probably thinking…
“I should be creating a plan for 2017!”
“I’m so behind!”
“I should really set some goals for the new year.”
And I’m here to say, “STOP!”
Before you go off and set a bunch of New Year’s resolutions and goals and pick your word of the year…
Take a deep breath.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
Now that you’re more grounded, feel into what it is you do want.
Do not compare yourself to anyone else. (If you do, you give that person your money).
Do not fall into the “I’m not doing enough” trap. (You’re exactly where you need to be.)
Instead, consider getting clear on who you want to serve, how you want to serve them, and how you want to feel in 2017.
Instead of writing a bunch of goals, resolutions, or even a word of the year, let’s start simply by focusing on a FEELING.
How do you want to FEEL?
The past few years, I’ve chosen a word of the year to focus on. (The reality is, I can’t tell you what my word was for 2016. Flow maybe?)
Yesterday, I picked the word “Unflappable”. I thought it was awesome, and then a conversation with my friend Krish made me realize, that’s a negative, resistant word. It’s strong, but not uplifting. Solid, yet flimsy.
The word I’m after doesn’t really exist because what I want is a FEELING.
Going into 2017, I want to feel rooted into my body, connected to my soul, strong in my decision making, focused on what I want, deliberate in my actions, and solid in my business.
I want to root down, grow, and expand.
I want to blossom. I want to shine. And I want to be an inspiration for entrepreneurs who want to NOURISH their families, their businesses, and their souls.
The essence I’m after is that of a cherry blossom tree. With roots that extend past it’s branches, beauty in it’s blossoms, and strength in it’s trunk.
I don’t know how long this essence will be my focus, but it’s all I need for now. It doesn’t have to start on New Year’s or end after a set number of days.
I’m embracing it with all of my being and moving forward with more focus, will, and determination than ever.
I invite you to take a few minutes to consider your essence. What feeling are you after? What is it you want?
Feel free to reply with your feeling. Send me an image if you care to draw it out. Or post it on Facebook and tag me.
I’d love to help hold the space for your coming weeks, months, and 2017 to be more amazing than you ever imagined.
