Quick Tips On Year End Reflection and New Year Planning

It's about that time that all entrepreneurs take this time to reflect on the passing year and begin planning the new year. This time can often be a time for celebration, deep reflection, insights, gratitude, disappointments, and hopefulness. Going deeper into ourselves in looking over our past and present relationships, our spirituality, our lives, and business can often put your physical body into "detox" mode. (As a matter of fact, I'm experiencing a slight spiritual detox in this moment.) Reflection back into the year can take up to a few hours in one day. That's about the time that it took me last year. During the year, I keep everything in a 12-month planner, daily, and weekly, so that at year end, it's easier for me to look back at information kept all in one place. My back office for numbers in business is kept online for reference (which I love) Everything you need to succeed in a home-business is literally at your finger-tips.
If you don't already have your life recorded for 2011, then now would be a good time to start for 2012. It's called "planning ahead."
So what are some of the topics that you can reflect on? I share these topics in the order that I have them as a priority in my life, yet yours may be in a different order too.
1. Your health "The Greatest Wealth Is Health" -Virgil
2. Your spirituality/personal growth "Peace in ourselves, peace in the world." -Thich Nhat Hanh"
3. Relationships/Family "Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep it flourishing and growing." -Jim Rohn
4. Business "When you know what you want, and you want it badly enough, you'll find a way to get it."-Jim Rohn
5. Finances "You don't get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to an hour."
6. Community/Giving "Happiness is not an accident. Nor is it something you wish for. Happiness is something you design." -Jim Rohn

And now when that reflection is over for 2011, start to "create" your 2012 in an exponential way. If this is your first time, then do allow yourself to make "baby-steps." What you don't want to do is disappoint yourself either, but I love what Joyce Meyer says ""I'd rather have BIG dreams and get half of it, then have nothing and get all of it." 

So there are some topics to start planning your year with. It's simple but not easy, and most of all, you will have to honor yourself with that time. I say "honor yourself" because I believe that the greatest gift you can give yourself, and to the world of your influence is your own personal development.
The greatest way to attract all that you want is to become attractive. Attractiveness comes from taking care of your needs and your life in a meaningful way to you that makes you feel vibrant, passionate, magnetic and energetic.
So to leave with you this, out with old, in with the new, finish any unfinished business that you need to take care of in 2011, then this way as we enter 2012, we all have a fresh clean slate!

With much love and light,
