This Week's Topic: How is your year coming along?
"Where there is no vision, the people perish."
- Proverbs 29:18
It's hard to believe we're more than halfway through the year! Earlier this year, I challenged you to dream big and create a compelling vision for the year. This week, I'd like for you to take a moment to ask yourself two questions:
1. What are you most proud of so far this year?
Reflect on your progress so far this year in the five key areas of your life - relationships, work, finances, health and spiritual life.
What have you accomplished? What shifts have you made? What goals have you met or started to move towards? What positive character traits have you had to use in order to make progress. It's important to give yourself credit for what you have done rather than beating yourself up for what you haven't done. So after you make a list of what you are proud of, take your right hand, place it over your left shoulder ... and pat yourself on the back!
2. What do you want to accomplish before this year is over?
If you haven't already, write down a clear vision for what you want to look different in your life six months from now. Is there something you've been procrastinating about and now it's time to get going? It's only July, so you still have time - but NOW is the time.
It's important to celebrate our milestones as we reach them, while continuing to walk towards new ones. What milestone will you reach by year's end? Whether your focus is improving a relationship, eating healthier, saving and investing more, reducing debt or simply enjoying life more, consider this message your gentle reminder to clarify and refocus your vision.
There is still time to make a decision that can be a turning point for you. Only you know what that means for you - and only you can make the choices that will transform the remainder of this year. Consider this message your nudge to do what you know it's time to do. :)
Until next time ...
