It's been a whirlwind of a year for you. The last twelve months have brought you trials and tribulations that have tested your strength and resilience.
But first, let’s acknowledge some gratitude.
- You've been working on a wonderful vision that will transform millions of lives.
- You built meditation into your daily routine which has helped you become more self-aware.
- People find you inspiring and motivational when you converse with them.
- A keynote speech about your entrepreneurial journey inspired young entrepreneurs, as did your “can do” attitude and storytelling skills.
- You attended several startup conferences this year and became acquainted with many smart and enterprising people.
In this past year, you’ve had a lot to deal with—I’m sure it’s been quite a challenge to juggle everything.
A relationship came to an end that you thought would last forever, but the experience has taught you many life lessons. I know you have a hard time understanding why someone would forget a hundred good deeds to remember one bad deed. But people come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
A new venture is almost doomed to failure due to the wrong placement of people and their roles. You tend to focus on people's potential, but assigning them the wrong role could be harmful in the long run. Don’t put your efforts to climb fish on a tree , monkey climbs on a tree.
When there is doubt there's no doubt... When you don't listen to your intuition and ignore your subconscious mind, you run the risk of getting the wrong results. It is better to resolve your questions or objections than to leave them for later.
Working too much and experiencing setbacks can make you feel burned out, depressed, or moody, and sometimes cause you to give up on your dreams of contributing to others’ lives. If this happens to you, take the time to rest and recharge yourself with activities that renew you.
Steve Jobs famously observed that you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that these dots will somehow connect in your future.
Slow down. Love yourself.
