2013 has been a year of major growth and transformation in my life.
This past year I became the Patriarch of my family, having lost my Father and both of my Grandfathers within the last few years.
Having spent a significant amount of time in deep introspection after the loss of my Grandfather, who was my greatest mentor, I made the commitment to myself to overcome all of the fears and limiting beliefs that have been holding me back in my life. (SUBSCRIBE to the right for your “3-Step Guide To Overcoming Fear”).
This video is a tribute to remembering 2013 as the most transformational year of my life. Below the video is an incredibly powerful exercise from Lifebook that will help you not only remember 2013, but also help you create 2014.
You’re not the same person you were on January 1, 2013.
You have another year of experience under your belt… 12 months worth of new knowledge… 52 weeks of empowering rituals and rhythms… 365 days of practiced habits and skills.
So as we move into the New Year, make sure not to leave the old one behind…
Looking back can be an incredibly effective step for moving forward.
Through the simple practice of review, we can experience a well-earned sense of pride and fulfillment for all that we have achieved…
We can identify and learn from our mistakes, and shine awareness on current opportunities in our lives…
And we can empower ourselves to step into the New Year with clarity and intention, and to make it – once again – the very best year of our lives.
“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.” –T. S. Eliot
