This year my theme is “Go Ahead”.
So why Go Ahead?
Go Ahead is….
1. marked by energy and enterprise; progressive (as in: a vigorous ‘go ahead’ company)
2. a sign, signal that one may proceed; green light
3. energy, spirit; one possessing ‘go ahead’ enthusiasim
4. readiness to embark on bold new ventures
This theme is a challenge. A call to action. A call to go ahead and make a difference. A call to step up and lead. It’s about permission to proceed. It’s about drive. The drive and passion to take on bold new things. Go Ahead is about saying YES to the things that really matter, and it’s also about saying NO to limits, hesitation and doubt.
I’ll be weaving this theme into my personal and business life this year. When at a crossroads or important decision, I’ll give myself the go ahead to take the path that pulls me. When an opportunity surfaces that’s cool but scary, I’ll remind myself I am ready to take on new ventures. I’ll approach my work and personal priorities with energy, spirit and enthusiasm…and say no to the things that drain me.
This is the year to Go Ahead. And so I’ll be weaving it into what I share with you too. Being a business owner requires a heavy dose of “Go Ahead” energy. So here are my 2014 “go ahead” nudges for you”.
Go ahead and pursue what you see that others don’t.
Go ahead and follow your enthusiasm, your passion, those inklings and nudges.
Go ahead and have some fun.
Go ahead and surround yourself with support and a community that “gets” you.
Go ahead and challenge yourself. Push yourself to do that thing that calls to you and scares you just as much.
Go ahead and clear out the clutter—in your head, in your heart, in your home or office—that limits you and stops you from being and doing what you truly want to do.
Go ahead and trust yourself. Relax into who you are, what you know and what’s next for you.
Go ahead. Be ‘crazy’. Buck convention. Lead the way.
I’d love to hear what you plan to Go Ahead and take on this year? What’s your “GO Ahead” goal? And how can I best support you as you go ahead into 2014?
