As you can see from my subject line, I can waffle a bit when making a decision. But then I think, ah what the heck, it doesn’t hurt to try. Every time I take a risk and reach out to people, it usually pays off in some way.
It is time to set intentions for the New Year. One method of setting your intention is to focus on one word. I imagine it as choosing a word that will act like your guiding star. If you follow this word you will always travel in the right direction.
While I love the idea, I am leaning towards a phrase for the year, “Ah, what the heck, I might as well give it a shot.”
Too many times I have set unnecessary limits on myself. For those of you who don’t know, I went on a world tour teaching storytelling and social media 6 months ago. That was no easy feat to pull off. I have ran my own business for 3 years. It has been an amazing ride, but no adventure is complete without some major bumps in the road. Ultimately I have done all of these things because I just decided to do it. Now when I start talking myself out of an idea that seems too big and too impossible, I am going to remember, “Ah Heck”.
Honestly, no one knows why any one says yes or no. But you will never find out if you don’t put yourself out there.
So next year, I am going to say, “Oh heck, a heck of a lot more!
Have an amazing holiday break! And on New Year’s Eve don’t make a resolution, commit to a revolution. In what way are you going revolutionise your life?
On a personal note this year has been a wonderful, but in many ways a hard year. I learned so much and next year I am going to start putting it all into practice. From many of the conversations I have had, I know a lot of you have had an intense, hard year full of learning.
Never fear, next year all of that learning is going to be put to good use. Do I know this for sure, no, I don’t. What I do know is that hard work does lead you to where you need to be.
So watch out everyone, next year is going to be about reaping the rewards!
Stay well and see you in 2016.
