As we enter the last month of 2017, was this year everything you thought it would be? Nope, not for me either. But that’s OK.
What’s the one thing you are the most proud of, and what do you regret most? Before you answer that, get out a pen and paper and write down what you are the most proud of. Look at the words for a few minutes, then fold the piece of paper and put it in your pocket. Now write down the thing you regret the most. Read the words once, then tear up the piece of paper into tiny little pieces. Now pull the other piece of paper back out of your pocket and read it again, this time aloud.
This is what you should be taking with you into the new year. Build upon it every day. Focus on it. Throw away your regrets and keep looking ahead. Bring your proudest moments forward, keep referring to them, and let go of regrets. They only ever hold you back, and I promise that you won’t even miss them next year. Just. Let. It. Go.
