Take It Easy On Yourself

strada di campagna riflessa nello specchio retrovisore‘Tis the season for business planning and goal setting.

So I’m kicking off a 3 part series of posts to help get you set up for success.

Have you ever had a moment where you thought “I could have done that differently”?

I’m assuming you have at some point.

It’s natural to look at things in the rear view mirror with more information, and a different perspective than you had in the moment.

But the critical question is: do you let it go, or do you spend hours (or more likely days) beating yourself up about making what you now feel was a bad decision?

Unfortunately, most of us go with option B. We spend tremendous amounts of time stressing about perceived mistakes or short comings.

As we wrap up 2015 and look forward to 2016, this can come up a lot.

Are you celebrating your accomplishments, or lamenting the things that didn’t get done?

No matter where you fall on the goal setting, self talk continuum I invite you to take it easy on yourself.


What if everything was perfect just the way it is?

Maybe everything worked out exactly as you planned. But if it didn’t, isn’t there a chance that it still worked out pretty well?

If you operate with the belief that the Universe has your back, and you are meant to be happy and successful, then where you are at now is just a jumping off point for where you want to go. It’s not good or bad. It just is.

Some of the best things that happened to me this year were things that were not in the plan. And yet they were absolutely perfect.

Goal setting works best when you come from a place of empowerment.

So let’s focus on what was great about 2015? What did you learn?

Make a list and see how you feel at the end of it. Pretty great right? I bet you even surprised yourself with some of them.

As you do this, it will build your confidence, and the realization that you have what it takes to rock 2016.

This week was about opening the door of possibility and getting you in the right state to create something new.

Stay tuned for next weeks email with the next step in opening the door to success, and  details on my business planning workshops that will be held on December 3rd.

We’re mixing it up this year and building systems unique to your business phase. So mark you calendar and be sure to check your email next week.

To your success!
