Every year at this time, I take 5-10 minutes to perform a POWERFUL exercise in completing the last 365 days, in order to create a year full of NEW POSSIBILITIES.
For me, 2014 was a year of “Quantum” Growth.
I tripled my revenue, hit seven figures, fell in love, and I surfed/traveled more than ever before!
I also made a LOT of mistakes.
By the end of the first quarter, I was burnt out and exhausted. I pushed myself and my team…got angry, frustrated…fired a few people…
I had some projects that hit multiple six figures in 3 weeks…and others that didn’t even get finished! (squirrel!)
Yet I am GRATEFUL for all of these experience!
And I believe they wouldn’t have been possible without properly completing my 2013 FIRST!
This exercise is simple, easy and powerful.
Your 2014 Completion Exercise
On a blank piece of paper, identify…
1. Identify your 5 Biggest Successes of 2014
2. Identify your 5 Biggest “Failures” of 2014
3. What did you learn from each success?
4. What did you learn from each failure?
how your paper should look…
Take your time and be present to the lessons that show up for you…
When you are done, all you need to do is DECLARE 2014 complete!
Repeat out loud:
“Thank you for these experiences. I have learned all I needed to learn from this. I know declare these complete and release them.”
Then BURN the paper. (safely!)
Bonus Step: Now that you’ve created a space…you want to fill it. Here’s what I say out loud:
“This is it, and it’s perfect. From nothing, who I am now is the possibility of _____ (fill with whatever you are present to).”
Ok, so now what?
After completing 2014…it’s time to create 2015 as THE BEST YEAR EVER!
In January, I started to listening to Michael Hyatt’s “This is Your Life” Podcast…I absorbed every episode. I look up to him as a great leader & mentor.
And right now, he is sharing a FREE video series on how YOU can create the Best Year Ever in 2015!
Have you seen it?!
Watch it here:
In this video, Michael identifies The FIVE characteristics of entrepreneurs who get what they want. (do you have these five?)
It is soooo important that you take this time of year to prepare for the next 365 days. Don’t wait until January! Get a head start now!
Have a GREAT Week!
