How to Step Boldly Into 2022 with Clarity

goal setting new year Jan 01, 2022

Are you ready to let go of what has been holding you back?

2021 was a year of changes, growth, struggle, success, new opportunities, and every little thing in between.

For many of us, we had to learn new ways to do business after a global pandemic changed the way we did events, connected, created, and did things a whole new way. We might have thought things would go back the way things were but we have found that the world we live in now is here to stay and that we have so much more time and freedom to change the things we had been doing before.

Getting ready to take on the world means making space for the things you actually want in 2022. 

  • What do you want to add to your business in 2022?
  • What would you like to add to your personal life in 2022?
  • Why do you want these things?

Once you know what you are looking forward to going into 2022 take a moment to look back at the things you want to leave behind this year. One of the best ways to set yourself up for all the new things in this coming year is to make sure you aren’t bringing in the noise of the overwork and overwhelm that might have been hanging over your head this past year. 

Now letting go of things can sometimes be incredibly difficult when they are the things you have been doing over and over again even if they might not be getting you the real results that you are looking for. We continue to do things that might not be the best for us because they have become habits and breaking old habits is an intentional and sometimes a slow process that takes dedication and commitment. The reward of changing these old habits and letting go of things means more space and more energy to do what you actually want. 

It can help to create a visual representation of the things you are going to be leaving behind like this photo. You don’t need to take your excuses, your doubts, or any of the other junk holding you back into the new year. Whatever those look like for you it’s time to let them go, it’s time to step into the version of yourself in 2022 that you are searching for. 

Here is an editable template you can use with some common habits and mindset beliefs that people commit to leaving behind.
