Happy New Year - don't forget to be about you. This is almost the end of January and it is important to focus on you. We had a lot of drama and foolishness is our lives in 2015 and sometimes we forget to exhale and inhale and we become breathless. Be a little selfish! This is a good time to reflect on and plan for what to accomplish in 2016. Write it on a paper napkin - send yourself a messages - just do it!
According to my professional and spiritual friend Doc Gabe, Gabe Hamda, Ph.D., there is power in words. Just thinking positive thoughts about yourself and capturing those thoughts as words on actual paper is rewarding and a good first step. Please, please check out Dr, Gabe Hamda book, "You Become What You Say: The Power of Words". To receive a free copy of the book overview and or to order the book, please contact by email at firstname.lastname@example.org The sale of the first 1,00 books will be used to support godanaUSA and global school lunch initiatives.
To get started ponder the following questions:
What are your five best attributes?
What are your finest/proudest moments in your life thus far?
What is in the present that excites you?
What do you need to let go of in 2016?
Where would you like to be a year from now in 2017?
Reflective planning can really help you prepare for your life successes. Consider your answers as you set your goals for 2016. When you develop goals that are rooted in your strengths, inspired by your passions and driven by a sense of purpose you will feel empowered.
