2020: A Brand New Decade For Opportunity


It is really pretty crazy that we are entering a NEW DECADE when you stop to think about it.

.

The world is so fast-paced nowadays it seems like months fly by like hours.

.

What do you remember about the past decade?

Do you remember happiness, sadness, anger or frustration?

.

Do you remember pivotal events that made an impact on your life?

.

.

.

If you had to sit down and summarize each year in 3 words from 2009 to 2019, what would each of them say? Can you pinpoint 3 events from each year that made a significant impact on your life?

.

I encourage you to reflect on this, as it will help you in this brand new decade starting in 2020.

.

Go ahead and write each year from 2009-2019 on a piece of paper with the 3 words and 3 events under each of them. If you can't remember 3 of each, that's O.K., just write what you can remember.

.

Next, write the year 2020 on a separate piece of paper using a different pen, perhaps in a different color. I find Live Lean Green to be a happy and renewing color :-).....

Reflect on what you would like to feel, experience and accomplish by 2021.

.

If you are feeling really motivated, do a 5 year plan, and go all the way through 2025!

.

Using a different pen to outline our projections for this brand new decade is ALSO a symbol and analogy for the welcoming of new approaches...

.

STOP "WRITING" your future intentions with the same "pen" you previously "failed" with.

"Writing" is in quotations to represent the physical act AND the analogical reference of designing your goals and plans.

- Did you notice similar patterns from year to year from 2009-2019 in your emotions and events that happened? For example: trial & error with weight loss or fitness goals using THE SAME methods and feeling frustrated? (AKA- using the same "pen..")

.

Every new opportunity is a chance to try a different approach, but only if you're open minded to trying it.....

.

.

Notice I said WRITE and not TYPE it on the computer.

But why?

Because when we WRITE, we have a different connection with our words. It takes extra EFFORT to make your pen move versus typing on your phone or keyboard, and seeing the words at the tip of your pen in your own handwriting has been proven to create more of a long-lasting impact than typing words on a page.

The same concept is true when we read out loud versus reading to ourselves in our heads.

The brain works differently to produce and interpret handwriting and sound.

. After you've completed your list for 2020, try reading it aloud to yourself, to your pet, family, or friends.

Putting it out into the universe even when nobody else is around creates a sense of accountability for a lot of people.

.

"If a tree falls in the woods and nobody is there to hear it, how do we know it happened?" - Someone is ALWAYS listening, and in today's technology age, it's probably Siri or Alexa.

.

Remember when you were a kid and you asked your parents if you could get ice cream after going to the park? If your parent said yes and you behaved on the playground, didn't your parent almost always follow through with it?

Part of it was to make you happy because they love you, but part of it was also a psychological tie between saying it out loud and feeling responsible for staying true to their word.

.

Stay accountable to you in this decade. If you don't, the only one who suffers in the long run is you.

.

As always, I am here to help! All you have to do is ask.

.

.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2020!

.

Be Well,

Coach Heather
