When divorce was not included in my 2015 Shining Year Plan!

When divorce was not included in my 2015 Shining Year Plan!

Last January I attended a small retreat with online entrepreneurs to Bali where we challenged ourselves to be closer to free. We shared what was holding each other back from being successful and articulated what our ultimate lifestyle would be. I had 4 glorious kid free days connecting with likeminded women and relaxing by the pool writing in my 2015 Create your Shining Year workbook. And now as the year has come to pass I reflect on what happened and didn’t.

Things I definitely said I would do was get married in the Cook Islands, learn the piano, take kids camping and launch my first online product.

Things that were not written into my plan were also to get a divorce in the same year!

Does that mean I failed?

Does that mean every goal and vision in my workbook was a furphy?

Today I went back over my workbook that I had beautifully filled so many months ago and reflect that yes, this year had had some amazing highs but unfortunately some incredible lows. Yes, I connected with an amazing tribe of online business entrepreneurs and launched my first online product. I also got married but only to file for divorce months later. My beautiful twin girls blossomed into their first year of school and now the three of us are replanning 2016 as a new family unit and recreating our own vision boards.

This time of year is also a time to reflect. I have been creating an online business for a few years and focusing on multiple streams of income to create a lifestyle I want. These multiple streams are 1:1 consulting, affiliate payments, real estate investments, e-Courses and information products. I am yet to reaching a 6-Figure goal but I am on the road to get there.

The one big lesson for me this year has been that you should focus on just one project at a time and really only have 1-2 major focuses in your business as well as build a community of specialist outsource staff to leverage your time so you do not have to do everything.

I thought I was doing this when I launched my first course this year but on reflection there were many tasks like affiliate management, copywriting and website design I should have let go much earlier so I too could spend that valuable time with my kids to complement the lifestyle I am creating.

Did my launch cause my divorce? Haha no! But I will share my “Letter to my Daughters” – of what is important in love and life in the New Year.

But tell me. What did you achieve this year?

If you write down you goals at the start of the year, what feeling arise when you review them down the track? Do you feel confident and driven to complete them or content that you are doing something towards them every day? Or failure as things crop up and derail those perfectly filled plans.

I want to let you know that is A OK for things to not work out exactly. It is OK to change your mind or postpone things. It is OK if things take longer or at first go the success you envisioned did not play out as you imagined.

And this applied to your business too. The thing is it is OK to take your time. It is most certainly OK to make time for your business’ biggest asset – in case you haven’t guessed it that’s you! Your business plans should be flexible and evolve as you evolve.

So as we move into 2016 I would love to invite you to check out STILL my absolute favorite way to do my business planning every year – using the Leonie Dawson Incredible Year Planners.

It’s your Year with a Leonie Dawson workbook

Leonie Dawson 2015 WorkbookWell I probably should be starting my Leonie Dawson Workbook early in the morning with a fresh start but as we have it, it is late at night, kids asleep as I settle down with a late night coffee listening to music as I open my first pages. If you have not seen it but the 2015 Create Your Shining Year life workbook and calendar is an incredibly popular & useful tool to help you plan out & make happen your most incredible year in life or business (or both!).

What is apparent is fellow Queenslander (although I hear now moving to Tasmania) Leonie Dawson is an amazing artist where the whole workbook and her website is a unique piece of art. The workbook has a feel of creativity but she asks the tough questions of your business and your life. As I folded over each page reading each note, exercise and self analysis I knew this was a true life workbook not to leave on the shelf to the end of the year (like the baby record books I never got around to fill out) but a work in progress book. The Create Your Shining Year in Life and Biz workbooks are filled with dozens of pages of powerful worksheets & a printable calendar to help you create your amazing new year. What I love is it doesn’t matter how big your dream board is or how much you yell, wish or moan to the universe the things you want or dream about – unless you take action to make it happen things are not going to move in your direction.

The Leonie Dawson workbook is growing in popularity every year by a huge network of entrepreneurs, artists, mamas, creatives, coaches, teachers and women of all ages. There are no right or wrong ways to work with the workbook the underlying message was just about getting in the practise and routine of getting it done.

Now I have always been an annual goal writer. I have other annual diaries spanning the last 12 years. In January on the clean crisp pages I neatly write out a list of things I want to achieve. One thing I don’t quite do as regularly is review them. So with that, are you aware of these stats?

  • 80% of people have NO GOALS
  • 16% of people think of goals but do NOT write them down. 
  • Just 4% of the population write their goals down BUT
  • JUST 1% of the population WRITE down their goals AND REGULARLY REVIEW THEM. And that 1% are among the highest achieving people in the population.2015 Create Your Shining Year workbook

Which one are  you? If you starting completing the 2015 Workbook (new link for 2016) it will keep you on track, accountable and motivated. PLUS you will be one of the incredible 1% of people who make their dreams come true.

So if you need help transforming 2015 into an incredible year for your life and biz, I can put my hand on my heart and say ORDER THIS Book!. Love to hear your comments below.
