My 4 Important Lessons from 2017

Over the past few weeks I have been doing a lot of Reflection about 2017.

Recently I did the Reflection Webinar to take you through this powerful process.

Last night on my Master Manifesters call (which is a small, invite-only group of extraordinary people who I coach) each individual in the group shared their successes, what they are most proud of, their challenges and their lessons.

It was like gold listening to everyone share.

So, I wanted to share with you some of my personal reflections and lessons from 2017 as Life is the BEST teacher there is…

 

Lesson 1: Simply LOVE the other person

My partner, Geoff, had a tumultuous year. It was challenging, rough and tough.

I learned to support him and love him and not get caught up in his “stuff”.

I learned the difference between “rescuing” someone and simply showing up and loving him, no matter where he is on his personal journey.

I kept repeating to myself throughout the year – “My job is just to love him!”

This has created a tremendous deepening in our relationship

 

Lesson 2: Surround yourself with AMAZING People who stretch you

In the middle of 2016 I realised that one of the Key Principles that I teach in manifesting your “Dreams & Goals with Soul” I had stopped doing… (yes, there are times when I forget my most powerful tools!)

The Key Principle?
“Build your Supporting Cast”

Which means connect with people who have BIGGER Dreams and Goals than you. Surround yourself with people who inspire you. Engage in conversations that stretch you to the next level (even though they may scare the bejeezus out of you).

In 2017 I did this. I created and became part of 4 incredible groups of people who inspire the hell out of me.

In one of those groups I really felt like the dumbest and least successful person in the room.  Which was important in helping me stretch myself.

As a result my business has expanded dramatically this year. I have felt incredibly supported. My Supporting Cast have helped me expand my possibilities.

And my goals for 2018 are AWESOME!

This is what I do for thousands of people and it was so important for me to re-create it for myself.

 

Lesson 3: Life is short. Live your Dreams NOW

In 2017 there were a number of deaths and severe illnesses of people very close to me.

It has made me realise the importance of “Just doing it now!”

These deaths have made me braver and more able to face my own fear and do it anyway.

I have considered what my regrets may be. I then sorted out and cleaned up that stuff. Whether repairing relationships, spending more time with the people who matter or finishing my next book.

 

Lesson 4: It’s all a Game!

When I take life too seriously, I know I’m in trouble!

When I approach life with lightness, fun, a sense of adventure and seeking to enjoy every step of the journey (even when some of those steps are F-ing revolting)…

That is when I experience true MAGIC, Ease and Effortlessness and my dreams and goals miraculously happen.

This is something that I keep teaching others and keep learning myself at deeper and deeper levels.
So there are the 4 lessons…

 I wonder what your lessons from 2017 are?

Stuck? 6 Steps to Shift yourself… {Part 1} Stuckness. That icky, gooey, “help-I’m-moving-through-treacle” feeling. We ALL get stuck at times; experiencing slumps and troughs. Those times when it feels like NOTHING is happening. You are in the forest and have completely lost your way. The path of your dreams seems like a faint memory. Fear,…

The Chinese Curse + crazy world events… and what you can do about it.

The Chinese Curse for Web

The Chinese Curse: “May you live in interesting times…” 2016 – Interesting times. The past decade – Interesting times. (No matter where in the world you live). On the eve of the US election results, as external events get more and more “interesting” and rollercoaster-ish, I ask myself: “What can I do to stay centered, grounded,…

I made a deal with a city… and I returned to celebrate

Bariloche, in Argentina, is a picturesque, chocolate box town. It overlooks a massive lake while the snow-covered peaks of the magnificent Andes circle the inhabitants like guardians watching over their lives. It is here I began to explore my inner magic as a Fairy Godmother (11 years ago). It is here inspiration flowed through me…

Brexit: Lessons in Manifesting

Brexit

As a South African living miles away from the United Kingdom, I only heard about Brexit 4 weeks ago. My boyfriend and I then spent 2 hours Googling and researching Brexit and its implications. We merrily discussed the pros and cons of staying or going, without having any attachment to the result. My final comment…

My next BIG, Scary Dream

My next BIG, Scary Dream

Dreams and Goals are meant to be scary They are meant to make you quiver with excitement and shudder with fear simultaneously. They do that because in the journey towards them you will grow and fail and stretch and learn and be challenged and be thoroughly delighted. Sometimes dreams can be so scary that you postpone, procrastinate…

Magical Questions from a lazy, whispering Ocean

Magical Questions from a lazy, whispering Ocean

I’m a surfer. It is an activity that delights me to the core of my body, mind and soul. Today the waves were big, slow and lazy. Despite looking like they had some juice, they required a huge amount of paddling and very few surfers were catching waves. After 45 minutes I had only caught…
