It can be easy to just blow past the 1st of January, pedaling faster and faster, without really taking a moment to stop and celebrate the things you’ve achieved in the last 12 months.
So, I’d like to share with you this process to honour your achievements, that will bring more pleasure, meaning, and hope into your life.
Grab a journal – a nice one that you’d like to keep – this will be your BOOK OF WOW!
Ask yourself these questions:
What have I done in my life? (in a good way)
What am I proud of from last year?
What are the successes in my life, so far?
You can start from now and work backwards.
Or start from “being born” … and work forwards.
Learning to walk. Learning to talk. Learning to ride a bike. Learning to swim. Learning to read. Helping with siblings. Going to University. Getting your first job. Falling in love. Breaking up with a partner (because the relationship no longer served us). Creating a business. Travelling around Australia. Building a new house. Landing a big contract. Creating an amazing garden. Raising your children. Exercising every day. Surrounding yourself with fabulous friends. Working overseas. Etc. etc. etc.
Aim for 50 things, as a starting point!
I use this process with my Divine Alignment coaching clients … It’s a game changer!
And I do this process for myself at the start of every new year …
Try it yourself … “50 things that I am proud of in 2022”
You can ask a friend or family member to do it with you and help each other.
When you get stuck … have them ask you “What else?”
Your brain will stop looking for things if you stop and say “I don’t know”
Why is this important?
- To remember and honour your achievements gives valuable perspective in tough times. We’ve been through some incredible challenges in the past 3 years, and it’s easy to focus on all the stuff that went wrong. The fact is your focus of attention creates the quality of your life. So, let’s shift that focus.
- Being proud of yourself increases self-love and self-esteem. Many of us have been told that being proud of yourself is not allowed. Particularly in Australia – with the ‘tall poppy syndrome’ – if anyone says that they’ve had a success, there is a fear that others will be disparaging. The fact is, when you have a balanced and healthy pride that is the essence of self-confidence.
- You have yin and yang elements (not all good or all bad) like nature. Consider that you are part of nature and so you have all aspects within you … dark and light, loud and soft, hot and cold, right and wrong, happy and sad, as well as … wins and losses. No-one is all good, all right, all happy, all light. We are perfect in our imperfections. Embracing all of ourselves is the way to self-acceptance.
You probably focus more on your failures than your successes, which dims your light, disconnects you from your Soul, and that can make you unhappy, resentful, and even depressed.
This process will create a tangible reminder of all the things that you’ve done well in this life.
Shout it from the rooftops! Be loud and proud.
Minimum … take the time to acknowledge and celebrate yourself.
Then keep adding items as you achieve more life goals.
Read this journal for 30 days … and then every time you feel you need a boost of confidence.
