I know the power of this word, I love to hear the impact these conversations have. Okay, let's get into it.
So in the previous episode, I talked about the importance of reviewing your year added a key ingredient to that. So for the best bits of this year gone, it's adding appreciation. Think about the word appreciation. It's the word of expansion. It's a word of increase, taking the time to show appreciation for anything that was good. And appreciation for the lessons, maybe some of the things that weren't so good. So taking the time to look through after you've done your review, and show genuine appreciation and continue to do so for the next week or two, as long as you need to start feeling the momentum of that. Because I know for me, I get to the end of a week, back in my corporate days when I wasn't doing any of this stuff. Get into the waiting game. Man, I've wasted another week. At journaling. Being that I see clearly. But what I've written down from the week, each day was how much better the week had been than I thought. Now, if you do this at the year at a whole year level, and you show that self appreciation for the commitment you gave to yourself for what you were able to achieve, no matter how small that energy, like I said will allow increase. It will help you to increase it'll help you to increase in so many different areas. Increase results increase in exposure came to mind, if that's where you're up to with your business, increase in bottom line. And ultimately just come back to personally an increase in how you feel. If you focus on just the things that went bad, and you bring more of that on, but the more of this sense of appreciation, it's like next level up from gratitude. Their gratitude gratitudes important words important and you may have heard me say before, it's almost like a energy of thank goodness, we've got to this point. appreciation is wow. I'm so happy with where I'm at now where can we take it so take the time right statements of appreciation if it's helpful. Say it out loud in an affirmation or way. So I'm so appreciative for keep reminding yourself of it. Like I said, as long as it takes until you can really have that feeling as a knowing of just how well you went this year of just how appreciative how thankful how fulfilled you've been from the good particularly. And the lessons, maybe the things that weren't so good and what you got out of them. What other people in your world got out of them. of you are fearing for different important people in your life. But actually, it turns out that one of the most challenging part of the year was actually the biggest blessing. It's often the case. Some may say always the case. Enjoy this exercise. It's it's one that I know does bring so many good feels from it. And so much momentum and and also, interestingly, allow space for more opportunity's enjoy.
