Hello & welcome back!

The time between Christmas and New Year is my favourite time of the year. I love having some real down time.

I’ve slept a lot, read a lot and also taken time to reflect on the year we just had – using the reflection questions in the Dream Life Plan Your Year Journal (which contains all of the tools I’ve refined over many years for planning my year ahead).

When you take time to reflect, you find valuable lessons that you can use as you plan for the year ahead.

In today’s podcast episode I’m sharing:

  • How a day on my own recently made one of the biggest highlights of my year and why
  • 22 quick but important lessons I learned from 2022 (listed below for you…)
  • Where to look if you want more help setting yourself up for a brilliant 2023
  • …and so much more.

I would LOVE to hear some of your lessons from 2022 – so please share with us in the Dream Life Podcast Facebook group here.

I really encourage you to take time for yourself to plan your upcoming year too – and I really recommend this beautiful & inspiring Dream Life Plan Your Year Journal I’ve created.

If you’re serious about making 2023 your best year ever – please join my 12-month Dream Life Coaching Program so I can support and inspire you to make it happen. Click here to find out more and join.

Finally, THANK YOU so much for your support this year – I’m so grateful and inspired to see so many of my listeners making progress on their own Dream Life. That’s why I do what I do.

Wishing you a happy New Year and if you’re going to make one New Year’s resolution – commit to make your dreams happen in 2023 because you are so worth that. Life is too short not to. Let’s do it!

And please share this episode with anyone who you feel may benefit from it. Let’s inspire many more millions around the world.

Have a wonderful week!
