Tap into a Sense of Wonder

Last night, my husband and I celebrated an annual wonder tradition- driving around looking at twinkling holiday lights. A church in St. Augustine has a fantastic light show accompanied by music.  Dozens of different scenes are captured in lights, including the nativity, and then at least 6 gorgeous trees change color in time with Amazing Grace.  It never ceases to create a sense of awe inside me. And gratitude.

Looking at photos of animals of different species loving each other does the same thing.  So does spending time in nature and watching the majesty of a coral hued sunset.  What creates awe and a sense of wonder for you?

Awe and wonder are part of innocence.  Spend time with a young child this season and you will capture it.  It connects us back to something greater than ourselves and fills us with appreciation.  What can you do to connect with wonder?

Wishing you a glorious holiday season and a terrific new year.  And if you want to join me for my Jan. 12 workshop, the discount  ends tomorrow.

Happy Holidays!

Your Personal SWOT Analysis

Once a year, at least, take the time to assess where you are in your life, in all key areas: mental, physical, financial, spiritual, relationships, family. Take note of improvements you want to make and changes that need to happen.

As we approach the end of another year, we do all sorts of planning and strategizing about our work and companies. But what about a personal assessment of where you are? Consider doing a SWOT analysis of your own life.
As a reminder, SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. Take a few hours on your own to do this. Here's how:

Strengths:

• What strengths have you developed this year? Acknowledge areas where you have grown and expanded your capabilities. Reflect on personal and professional successes and what was required to achieve them. Which strengths did you employ? What 3 areas you would like to develop more? Include those in your plan for 2019.

Weaknesses:

• Where have you fallen short, personally and professionally? Which emotions or self-destructive habits have sabotaged your achievements? Are you impatient, quick to judge, self-critical? Do you procrastinate or linger in indecision? Pick 3 weaknesses you choose to change in 2019.

Opportunities:

• Consider the roads not taken. What personal and professional opportunities you have denied yourself? Is there a course you want to take? Is there a hobby you want to pursue? Is there some place you want to travel? Set an intention for 2019 to take advantage of those opportunities.

Threats:

• What threatens your happiness and success? It might be your health or not taking care of yourself. It might be your negative self-talk or attitude. It might be a lack of support. It might be the people you are spending your time with. Resolve to do something about those threats to ensure you have a great 2019.

You have the chance to make 2019 an incredible year. You are in control of your destiny and you are extraordinary. You deserve a great new year. Make it happen.

Who Do You Want to Be in 2019?

Creating a New and Improved You!

One of the great things about the new year is you get to start fresh.  Whether it's relieve stress by celebrating successsculpting a new physique, starting a new project at work or taking some courses for a future dream, the new year signifies change and reinvention.  So who do you want to be in 2019?

Start with who you are now.  If you haven't taken my personal SWOT analysis, you may want to do that now. Go here.

Then ask yourself these questions:

What do I want to be different in my life? Think about:
Health, Fitness, Career, Friends, Family, Relationship, Money, Spirituality, Stress, Mental Stimulation, Community Involvement, Learning

What do I love about my life and want to create more of?  Consider body, mind, spirit, and what you would like to add.

Who do you most admire and want to emulate?  Could you meet them and pick their brains? Now mull over the fact that you probably share many of their qualities and you have something great to offer them, too.

• What strengths do you have that you could develop further?

• How happy are you on a day to day basis?

• How stressed are you on a day to day basis?

Now what's your plan for achieving that change or improvement?  If you're not sure what to do next or how to proceed, join me on Jan. 12 from 10-2 in Jacksonville, Florida for Get Fired Up! for Success in 2019!
