Almost 20 days into 2020. Now what?

Almost 20 days into 2020.  Now what?

How has the start of 2020 gone for you?

In working with incredible clients and high performing women, I know the start to a new year can feel

(a) lukewarm,

(b) megawatt exciting, or

(c) full of dread and possible regret.

Group A is the productive type, yet they typically roll their eyes at the idea of goal setting and breathing new life into dreams. They feel like they’ve been there and already done that. Life feels too hard and there are way too many uphill battles to allow the new year to feel fresh and new. They know they have what it takes to level up in certain areas – but their personal motivation has gone dormant.

Group B is amped up and ready to set intentions, map out their goals, and create (or update) their vision boards – when January 1st arrives. They are giddy about 365/366 days to dive deep into their creativity and amplify their boldness. There is a fresh energy that keeps them buzzing and planning, but they often forget to carve out time for rest and renewal.

Group C has moments of ambitious thoughts that can be connected to their goals, but past setbacks and obstacles can hold them back mentally. They want to work smarter – instead of harder – but they are unable to upgrade their habits so they can set themselves up for success, joy, and personal fulfillment. They are surrounded by bold-thinkers and understand the power and pleasure that can come from investing in themselves – but often they cannot get out of their own way.

And there is Group D – which is a combination of all three groups.

Which one of these categories do you find yourself in?

An important reminder for everyone looking to enjoy what 2020 has to offer is to ask themselves these two questions,

What 2-to-5 things will I invite into my life?

What 2-to-5 things will I release from my life?

These two questions serve as a centering tool to help all of us weed out unnecessary thoughts and comparison traps about what this new year is – and what it should be about.
