At some point in the next few days, find a quiet space, grab a cuppa, your journal & a pen, and ask yourself six questions.
I hope you have had a brilliant Christmas and are looking forward to New Year's Eve!
Just a quick one from me - because I know you’ll likely be marinating in some much-needed family time along with tons of food, drink, friends and family
I find the week between Christmas Day and NYE can end up being really busy and not give me time, finding time for myself over the festive period can be tricky.
As great as it is to catch up with the all the extended family it is also the perfect time to take time out and reflect. I’ve been doing yearly reviews now for the last 5 years, and for me, they’ve been a complete game-changer in terms of being focused & prepared for the following year.
Plus, it gives me an opportunity to stop and reflect on the previous year and see how far I have come particularly if it has been a tricky 12 months.
So, at some point in the next few days, find a quiet space, grab a cuppa, your journal & a pen, and ask yourself the following questions:
1) What am I proud of myself for this year?
(Could be something big like getting a promotion or something smaller like making the effort to walk more).
2) What were my biggest mistakes (aka lessons) this year?
(This is not an opportunity for self beating, but rather a chance to be honest with yourself and give your self an opportunity to learn. It could be I learned that I need to find time for myself, I need to spend more time with my family, that I need to follow more positive people on social media!)
3) What do I want to let go of for next year?
(People-pleasing? Worrying about others think of you? Comparing yourself to others?)
4) Overall what was 2019 for me?
(Is there a theme to your year, or a way you would sum it up, it may be inspired by any of your answers from above or not. For me, 2019 was about finding balance and self-love. This year I learnt to balance my many hats, mother, wife, business owner and still find time for myself. As well as practice what I preach and push myself to be brave in my business and put myself out there.
5) What do I want for 2020?
(Think big, don't hold back. A great way to do this is to journal write without filtering, see what come out.)
6) What am I going to do to make that happen?
This is a chance to take what you have learnt and what you want and put your plans into action and come up with a plan.
I will be sharing my own answers to the above over the next few days on social media.
Using the EXACT same process I used myself (as well as dozens of my coaching clients) to go from being stuck, overwhelmed or frustrated to living my life doing what I love and loving the life I am in.

If you don't know what you want but you know you are not happy with where you are, this is a great exercise for helping you work out what it is your REALLY wanting. Only then can you focus on it create the action to make it happen.
Often people can’t tell the difference between brands, there is a massive difference between Chanel Gucci Fendi and Givenchy. In a similar vein, a question I am often asked is what is the difference between coaching and therapy.
