Every year I believe that you learn a lot if you pay attention. You can learn more about your strengths, weaknesses, your relationships and your business. I set myself some quite lofty goals this year when I started. This is my 2014 year in review.
I kept to the 30Day PUSH with Chalene Johnson method that had me writing down my goals once a week. My top 10 goals and then my PUSH goal. My goals were always in front of me, but I did not make them all. That’s OK. I am better equipped for this time around.
I said I was going to lose another 25lbs this year. I didn’t make it. I stayed my long and arduous road to health, but didn’t make that one. That’s OK, because I didn’t make a resolution in January and then stop in February. I’ve been on this health journey since 2008. I think I’m sticking to it!
I wanted to grow my business and I did. At the end of last year, I shifted my focus to narrowing down the types of entrepreneurs that I can really help. Health is a passion of mine, so I was able to connect with those people the best. I also want business owners to be healthier, so I do that through my essential oils education business. I met that goal, but I have MUCH work to do for next year.
Another of my goals was to be a better wife. I know that I will never be perfect, but I have so much more that I can do to really work with our marriage. We have had so many tribulations and trials during our marriage and we have found a way to persevere and that says something. My goal is to keep helping us to grow stronger. This was on my husband’s list too.
I also said that I wanted to read 50 books. I came close. I wasn’t going to read all business books. I wanted to read some fun ones too. These are the books that I read in 2015:
1. The Art of Being Unmistakable
2. Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook

There wasn’t a single one of these books that I didn’t enjoy. I hope that you will add some of them to your 2015 reading list. Did you read any of these books or have a book that really spoke to you that you read? I’m always looking for new books to read.
