In some of the last days of 2012 I went through an exercise from one of my mentors, Christine Kane, where I chose my word of the year – and I chose, for the year of 2013, the word Courage.
Then on January 1st of this year I did a vision board for what I wanted to get out of the year of 2013.
Now as I´m preparing to make a new vision board for my year of 2014 I would like to share with you some of the things I´m most thankful for in the year that is now coming to an end and I consider some of the highlights of that year.
To me this summary is a proof of two facts.
- Showing gratitude for what you have brings you even more things to be grateful for.
- Making a vision board helps you in an unconscious way to let all the things you plan for come true.
Now to my summary:
My family, what I am most thankful for. Now I have been with my husband for 13 years, where of 5 as a married couple. Combined we have three sons, none together, and they turned 22, 21 and 14. All of them have given me great joy in the year, and some headaches as well…
We sold our house. It was no longer serving our needs and dreams. We moved into another one that is now perfect for us (did some renovations) and in a neighborhood that is closer to everything we need. Talking about a smart move!
I went on an awesome road trip to USA with two good friends. We drove around GA and NC. Towards the end of the trip we met with other entrepreneurs from all over the world at an event at UpLevel Academy, where we all work with Christine Kane in UpLevelling our Businesses.
At the end of this road trip my friends went back home.
I on the other hand went to CA to attend an event called World´s Greatest Speaker Training, with Brendon Burchard, Roger Love and Bo Eason.
Off again, now I went to FL with my husband and our youngest to visit some of the theme and water parks and just enjoy being together.
I met Patch Adams. I took part in campaigning for Smiler. I went to several rock-concerts, plays and stand-ups. I went on a short girl-power trip where I went on a helicopter-ride for the first time. I met on a regular basis with several groups of old friends. I went for regular massages.
I got internationally certified as an ACC coach, I appeared in several radio-shows, both being interviewed and with regular discussion on coaching. Articles written by me were in almost every issue of Frjals verslun, most read business magazine in Iceland. My eZine was published every Tuesday, 53 this year!
In the year of 2013 I worked with about 50 different companies and organizations, either coaching some of their managers, giving motivational presentations or lectures on leadership and management or consulting on the same topics with their owners or top management team. In those companies I met with close to 2.000 people.
In addition to this I taught in the MBA-program of Reykjavik University and at the departments of continuous education both for University of Iceland and Reykjavik University. I also lead a conference for Stjornvisi, Excellence Iceland.
My online programs have also been doing quite well.
In fact I´m taking my business more online and new products will be added in 2014.
The number of people who have liked my Facebook page and signed up for me eZine has nearly tripled.
In fact, everything on my vision board came true, except for two things.
The red Eames chair I was dreaming about, doesn´t fit in my new house anyway.
I was also planning on doing more yoga than I actually did – but hey, new year – new opportunities.
Now I want to encourage you to do similar summary for you, to remind you of all the things you can be grateful for from the year of 2013, probably more than you realize right now.
I would also like to suggest you consider making a vision board for your year of 2014 – at least that is what I will be doing tomorrow.
