Can you believe it's nearly the end of the year already?
It's a pretty crazy time of year for a lot of people. I like spending time in December reflecting on the year that's been and everything that I've achieved, learned or done. I find it a really fun and enjoyable process to do before looking ahead.
Reflecting on our past can help us to learn lessons we need to in order to move forwards.
I've been doing some thoughtful reflection on 2016 and serious thinking about 2017 and how to make it a 10/10 year!
I recently wrote down the highlights of what I'd done in 2016 and was quite surprised! I really didn't think that I had done so much.
My main lesson has been very clear: it's time to do less next year! I do love doing, but I want to focus more on less 🙂

I worked out that I had/will have exactly 48 days at courses/events this year. And this was meant to be a year of less courses! Oops... Hahaha...
I just love learning - it's hard to stay away!
Some people have told me that I'm 'lucky'. My reply is usually the same; that it's not luck, but a choice. I've chosen a life that I love and I work really hard to maintain it.
It also comes with a price.
Not having a 'regular job' for over 13 years (with a guaranteed salary) has brought with it many highs - and of course some lows. The best highs have been who it's made me.
I invest in education. It's been a huge year of learning for me. I invest in time out. Holidays help me have creative space and come up for new creative ideas in my business.
Looking at this list got me thinking that I packed a lot more in than I realised. Reflecting on it is helping me in my goal-setting process for 2017.
I've decided that next year, I want to do less quantity with more quality. I want to allow more spaciousness and stillness in my year.
I'm a very high achiever and tend to 'do, do, do'. Next year I've decided I want to 'work' more on being. Spending time just 'being' has been a challenge of mine for a long time.
I don't like to stop. But because it's a challenge, I'm going to face it even more next year. Because whenever I do take time out to reflect, I come up with my best ideas and the spaciousness from allowing my brain to rest works wonders for pushing back in to my new projects.
A few pics of some of my highlights:
I have REALLY loved 2016, although it's been challenging and I've been very stretched. But because of this, I feel my capacity has really increased and I'm much more capable to take on problems and difficulties. I've 'levelled up'. It's a great feeling!
What did you learn, do or achieve in 2016? What's your vision for 2017?
I'd love to hear!
Would you like some help making 2017 your best year yet?
I know I can help you achieve the health and happiness that you really want, just as I have with thousands of others.
Get the support and guidance you need to set up powerful habits for good in 2017 - and enjoy the process!
Many people wish that next year will be better without creating a plan on how to make that actually happen.
Many people set goals that they never achieve, or simply wish things would change without having to take any different actions.
I have a couple of special limited offers on my programs and coaching if you act fast before Christmas and email me
I'll let you know about the specials and the best options for YOU - to achieve the energy, motivation and focus you want in 2017.
To your health and success,
