Well - what a night! I dj'd for 5 hours straight and couldn't think of a better way to bring in the new year than with the love of my life and some really cool, down to earth people!
2013 was a roller-coaster ... I started out 2013 with this big plan to get in the best shape of my life and had some very big goals for my business ... and both of these things stretched me into unknown territory ... UNBELIEVABLE and awesome things have happened. I found out I had a nasty pathogen in my gut and supposedly due to stress, from a few years ago, now PTSD this sucker got aggravated and caused an ulcer which had been bleeding for some time ... this led me to finding out I was a dangerously low in iron and my doctor was shocked that I didn't appear to be sick because he said that, people in my position usually have a lot of infections... not me, not one, thank God. He said I couldn't exercise for a serious lack of oxygen in my body. So, my dream of being in the best shape of my life fell by the wayside and when I tried to do any kind of major exercise it would wipe me out for days ... the gifts? PATIENCE, FORGIVENESS and so much more. wow.
Setting high goals in my business in 2013 helped me attract some new business partners who now want to go all the way with me... it also made me realize that I if I wanted to be a top leader I had to develop the daily skill-set that this kind of leader would have... and so it began again --- even more personal development, especially in the area of NLP and how to be and even better mentor and coach. Accountability was and will always continue to be the way I am able to stay in the game. I can see no other way to move forward in becoming exceptionally successful in my profession.
I am now branding and about to launch my entire business again, having everything I am skilled at, branding into ONE message.
The person I was even a year ago and my posture is entirely different and I can see so many new markers around me, proving to me this is the path I am so meant to be on and that dreams are coming true everyday! The bad days also teach me so much and I welcome them ... even though they suck, I know I am going to grow from it.
I have a great foundation building in my personal and professional relationships and communication is getting better in each area.
I see 2014 as the year I finally achieve the "big, hairy, audacious goals" I have been setting out for a couple years now... I am persistent and I am not stopping until I get there... because I get more and more clear on my WHY and since I don't have my own kidlets it has a lot to do with my family, friends and the collective human condition and our Mother Earth! So when someone comes a long and has something to say about my products or services or even my enthusiasm about my goals (believe it or not this does happen), I have trained myself to connect immediately with my why (and the importance of the why = my values) AND AT THE SAME TIME also be very keenly aware that others are suffering and that I was there ... in this case, I have also trained myself to respond (not re-act) with kindness and love and the fastest way to do that is to ask them a question about themselves in a loving, personal way. If they aren't open then I know I at least tried.
Here is to an amazing, crazy, wild, easy, scary and unbelievable 2014. To you and yours, Love ALL-WAYS
PS: I just realized that I haven't taken out all my gratitudes in my gratitude jar - which sat on my counter in my kitchen for the past year ... so hear goes!!! Did you do one of these? Here was my post on how to do one, from early 2013... below is my SMILEBOX wish for all of us ... In~Joy :)
