A Whimper or a Roar?

cowardly lionBringing in the New Year with Courage

Let’s be honest with each other and have one of those moments we should have in person but settle for in this digital space. Tell me and I’ll tell you. Are you ending this year with a whimper or a roar?

As you close the curtain on this year’s life performance, are you reliving your mistakes, watching your setbacks hiss at you from that hole in your heart of missed opportunities, or are you setting yourself up for new challenges and pledging to conquer each pin in the path of your bowling ball of determination?

We actually get to choose whether to whimper or to roar. I’ve done a little bit of both, but  the roaring is louder. I just took a look at my 2015 calendar and reviewed what the heck I’ve been so busy doing. Then I noted the things I was most proud of.  They included the people I worked with, the books I published, the photos I took, the time I spent meditating and chanting, and the wonderful women I coached. Now I am thinking about 2016. I made a list of things I want more of like dancing to music with heavy drumming and the strength to invite more quality and value into my life even when it is quantity that seduces me to focus on lack instead of abundance.

I’m going to kick off 2016 acting as if at a women’s mini retreat I am hosting with my friends Dr. Joanna Carmichael and Ellen Sue Jacobson. Acting as if is a powerful transformation tool. I’m going for it. Want to join me?

Close out 2015 with a roar by registering for this mini retreat: “Attracting Who You Are Becoming”.  Act like the person you want to become. Act like you already have what you want more of.

 Learn more about the Acting-As-If method of transformation.
