This column is about learning and growing. It’s about where we’ve been as humans and where we’d like to see ourselves go.
I became a certified life coach to inspire people to pull back the layers of “stuff” that prevents them from living their best life. We all have something valuable to share. We also have room to stretch ourselves beyond the idea of who we are today and change into who we want to become tomorrow.
Some are afraid to challenge themselves. But if you don’t how can you expect to grow?
As a way of challenging myself in the beginning of each year I give the year a name. I’ve found that naming the year has helped me stay focused on what I want to achieve during the year. In the past I’ve named my years the Year of Prosperity – I achieved my financial goals. Last year was the Year of Exploration – I traveled to Hong Kong, Haiti and Jamaica.
