2014 has come and gone and now it is a time to reflect on what worked, what didn't work and how to move forward into a New Year with open arms. I realize that you have to look at each year as an experience. Whether times are good or bad, you learn from each moment.
For me personally, I ended many things I was comfortable with, but all to start a new venture and challenge. I left Corporate America, I moved to a new state and I left friends. But I started a new chapter in my life. When I reflect on the changes I made I now realize it took Courage, Trust, and Focus to take the leap.
Courage because change is hard but I believe that we have a long life to live and you might as well enjoy it and experience it to the fullest.
Trust the process. If you believe in something strong enough, inspite of scary moments, you can always lean back on your experience and knowledge that you have gained over the years.
Focus to be set on your goal and don't waiver based on what others have to say, but have enough conviction in your beliefs to move forward.
I always enter a New Year with New Goals and New things I want to try. My next post will tell you what 2015 hopefully has in store for me. When you look back on your year, what qualities did you experience and what do you plan to take with you in 2015?
