The Personal Wellness Center’s Veronica Correa encourages you to make 2015 your best year ever
As 2014 has come to an end, I invite you to review it. Acknowledge what went well: your accomplishments, your struggles and challenges, and how you made it through. Life tends to balance itself between the good and the bad, the successes and the failures, though not always in the same year. If you want this year to be better than last year, or at least different, begin by selecting the areas of growth and improvement you’d like to welcome for the new year, then give life to that new vision.
We were all born with greatness and a need for significance inside us. When my daughter was 15 years old, she said to me: “Mom, I came here to make a difference in the world and to leave a legacy; I am just not going to pass by.” When she said that, she not only touched my heart with her purpose-driven life, she awoke something within me that has not stopped growing since, something that prompted me to ask myself: What is my own purpose, and what will be my legacy?
We humans thrive when we create expansion. Unfortunately, too few of us take the time to define what we want, create a vision and tackle our dreams and goals during our lifetime. Most people spend a great deal of time planning a vacation, for example, but they are at a loss when it comes to creating the life they want. Having created the life I wanted, I can tell you honestly that it was no easy task, yet it was worth every drop of sweat and tears that I shed to get it.
Darren Hardy, author of The Compound Effect, said that in order to have more, you need to become more. He challenges me to write every-year goals and create areas of personal growth. What I’ve noticed is that the return on investment, or ROI, for me has been exponential throughout the years.
If you think you are ready for something bigger and better, you may begin the journey by envisioning what you would want your life to be like by the end of next year, in five years and then in ten. Next, you must write it down. I tell myself and my clients that if it is not in writing, it doesn’t exist. People love to say, “I have my vision and my goals in my head,” and that may be true, along with a million other things that combine to blur and confuse the process. Another important thing to consider is that the process often requires outside assistance to achieve the best results. Life coaching is an excellent path to help achieve desired results because it provides a disciplined path and accountability along the way. Keep in mind that this approach is not a quick fix, but the results are steady and long-lasting, and that’s what ultimately matters most.
So, with the dawn of 2015 I would encourage you to awaken your deepest dreams and desires, and embrace the need to make your life and work more meaningful and balanced. Tap into your own sense of wonder and excitement about your present and future possibilities, rather than focus on limitations. The only limits we encounter are the ones we place on ourselves.
