5 Things to Remember as We Say Goodbye to 2021 and Hello to 2022Dec 31, 2021
By Tricia Scott.
As we move towards the end of 2021 and start heading toward the time of resolutions, goals and new desires, what if this time, instead of setting rules, we simply remind ourselves of a few gentle truths? If the pressure of the upcoming season has you ready to disappear under the duvet, this one's for you.
Celebrate what you want to see more of
If you want more good stuff, you have to celebrate what's already good. Make a list of the top five things you are grateful for this year and celebrate them! Go all in, open the fizz, dance a little and feel the feeling of gratitude for all that had been this year. The more we can get genuinely grateful for the things we have and love, the more we'll attract, so get your 2022 off to the best start and celebrate!
Don't stop belivin'
If you are anything like me, you are singing the lyrics to Journeys hit song in your head right now... As we round the corner into 2022, remind yourself of how far you've come. You've survived every single one of your bad days so far, and yet, here you are. Hold on to your vision for the future and keep the faith.
Don't buy into the 'New Year, New Me' mantra (at least not too much)
The old you is just fine. The version you that got you here is doing a great job, and we don't have to chastise her or leave her behind. Yes, there may be elements that you want to change or grow, but please don't be too hard on yourself. Love and thank the person you are and celebrate the shit out of the fact she got you here because even if transformation is one of your goals for the New Year, the current version of you is still an absolute Queen.
Stop looking for flaws and start looking for potential.
"We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives not looking for flaws, but for potential." ― Ellen Goodman.
I love this quote, and it's the perfect reminder that while a fresh New Year is an excellent time for reflection, it's also easy to slip into thinking of all things wrong rather than what's right. Every time you notice something you're less than satisfied with, ask yourself; What's the opportunity here? This subtle reframe of the question will bring about outstanding results.
Stay hungry, stay foolish.
Of course, I cannot take the credit for this stellar piece of advice. It came initially from Steve Jobs, and I quote it here as we round off 2021 to remind you and myself never to stop learning, developing and creating. Make it a lifelong quest to always desire more of the things that light you up. Also, stay foolish. Believe in the unbelievable. Trust your instincts, even when others say it cannot be done. Be willing to try, to look like a fool from time to time and keep getting back up and trying again. That's where the magic is CEO's, I believe in you.
