It’s easy to berate ourselves for not achieving all the goals we set out in 2012. Instead, this month’s GBWN speaker, mentor and speaker, Michelle Clarke, encouraged us to celebrate all the things we did achieve.

These are some of the ways we can encourage ourselves to have more good moments.

  •  Commit to action. No one’s going to call you to play the game.
  • Good years, months or days are made up of small good moments. We’re often so busy focusing on what we don’t do, or don’t want, that we forget the good things that happen. Write down ten good things that happen every day, and by the end of the year, there’ll be an awful lot to celebrate.
  • Consider Team Work and Team Home – what’s the score? Do you need to shift emphasis?
  • If pricing is a difficult issue, find a price you’re okay with. Once five people have paid you that much, put your prices up. Rinse and repeat.
  • Always have something expensive you think no one will want to buy. Someone always will.
  • Ask yourself positive questions. For example, “How is this going to be my best year yet?” The subconscious mind will always find an answer.
  • Make decisions. Things will slide into place. Indecision pulls you in different ways.
  • Put your stake in the ground, then align all you decisions with that.
  • Decide what you want, then leave space for it to happen. Don’t get hung up on how.

If you didn’t do all you wanted in 2012, don’t give yourself a hard time. Congratulate yourself on everything you did achieve, readjust and say yes to 2013.
