The absolute best thing about starting a New Year is that it's a natural opportunity for you to make a fresh start. There's a feeling of "out with the old, in with the new" when a New Year begins. You can use the opportunity to do the same in your life and business.
I remember a New Year's Eve several years ago. I spent it in Sun Valley, Idaho on vacation. I'd had a truly horrible year that year and was looking forward to saying goodbye to it and welcoming the new year. I've never been big on celebrating on New Year's Eve so I had gone to bed around 11:00. At midnight, I was awakened by all of the usual commotion with fireworks and people shouting. I remember waking up and thinking, "Thank goodness 2008 is over. Now bring it on, 2009!" and going back to sleep with the most amazing feeling of relief and possibility. As it turned out, that was just the fresh start I needed to change my whole life and business. I can honestly say that 2009 was one of the best years of my life, both personally and professionally, and it represented a turning point for me.
I truly believe much of that started with that fresh start I gave myself on the first minute of 2009. So, no matter what you're doing this year when the old year finally passes away and the new one rolls in, take a moment and consciously create a "fresh start." You don't even need to know what you'll do to make it different necessarily (I certainly didn't – I just knew I wanted it to BE different). Just breath out the old year and take a huge breath in of the New Year, with all of it's possibility and newness. Here's to the most amazing, abundant 2014 either of us can imagine. I'm ready for an amazing ride and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you.
