What 2021 Taught Me

Since today is the last day of 2021, it seems fitting to do one last look back before making the leap into the New Year.

Every year brings lessons with it. This year more than most. It’s been fascinating to look back and realize how much has happened this year. 2020 felt like the year that wasn’t. We all stood by wondering what would happen and just trying to get through it. 2021 had so much more going on.

As I look back at the last 12 months, here are my biggest take aways:

  1. Stop comparing my busy with other people’s busy. I’ll be the first to admit that I often fall prey to comparison game, and I usually feel like I come up short. Everyone else seems to be busier than me. But then being the busiest agent wasn’t my goal. Being a productive agent with great systems that guarantee my clients great results and allow me to have a life was. Mission accomplished.
  2. It’s important to do what makes you happy. Travel makes me happy, and I was able to do quite a bit of it this year. It looked a little different than in years past, but I had some wonderful adventures and created priceless memories. I’m grateful for not holding back on that.
  3. I have to own my results – or lack there of. This one is more of a reminder, it’s not exactly new info. Being in a Ninja mastery group again really helped drive home the importance of systems and habits. When we work the system, the system works. When things aren’t working, it’s because I am off track and only I can fix that.
  4. I can’t do this alone. We often talk about building your tribe and how important it is. All this talk about ‘self made’ is just not true. At least not for me. My tribe is big, and it means the world to me. It includes family, friends, agents I mastermind with, coaches, a therapist (for the record, I’m not sure anyone can come out of the last 2 years without benefiting from a therapist) and more. My tribe is filled with mentors in all areas of my life. Personal, business and spiritual. I couldn’t do it without them.
  5. There are different metrics for success and it’s okay for mine to be different than yours. This is similar to the first one on the list, but it bears repeating in a slightly different way. There are a million ways to measure success. Make sure you are using YOUR metrics, not someone else’s.

What are your biggest take aways from 2021? How will it affect what you do in 2022?

To your success!
