To me, the end of the year is always a time of taking stock – the highlights as well as the things I’ve survived (even if barely!). And it’s a time of connection, of re-engaging, even if only for once a year, with all those who mean something to me, who enrich my life.
This year, I have been lucky to have had fantastic work engagements in India, Dubai, the US, UK and Italy… and I have even managed to squeeze in some wonderful up-training, through the renowned Neuroleadership Institute, on the latest findings in brain-based coaching.
I am so excited and thankful to be doing work I love and with amazing clients. I’ve connected with incredible, powerful people who are constantly striving to cultivate and nurture their own light, their own natural brand of leadership. I am grateful to the generosity of those who have allowed me to share in their journey, to witness their creativity and to support them in their growing pains.
In the midst of year-end and holiday stress, I always like to have some “mantras” at ready reference to help me keep my sanity. They help me to focus my attention on what is important and to remind me to elevate the level of my daily thinking. This year, I thought I would share these with you. I hope you enjoy them.
Warmest wishes for a wonderful holiday season and all the best for a joyful and successful 2016!
