What will you create for yourself in 2021?



Turning this final calendar page of the year is always the perfect time to set intentions and action steps for what we want to create in the new year. With all we’ve been through in 2020, it’s never been more important than today!

I find that looking back can help me look forward to what I want to create and how I want to get there. Watch this for some inspiration and action steps:

Gender heritage has many stories for us: Don’t go after the job unless you’re 100% capable; don’t ask for a raise or stand up for yourself, you can’t apply for THAT job or lead THAT project because the men always get it, you have to be THAT leader (male-centric leadership model) in order to succeed, etc.

These messages have nothing to do with your vision, capabilities, expectations or value — UNLESS you let them hold you back.

Action step recap to launch the new year: Debunk those myths that are holding you back — so you can become your OWN VERSION of an extraordinary leader.

  1. Take some time to look back at your history and write down 2-3 times when a story you told yourself (unconsciously) held you back.
  2. Think about (or journal on) what you did, the mistakes you made in that situation, perhaps the opportunities you missed.
  3. Now look at whether that story is actually true or not, and what you could have done differently.
  4. Go forward into 2021, and DO make mistakes, just remember those myths you now can debunk, learn from your mistakes so you don’t repeat them, and move on stronger than ever!

P.S. One of the most common stories we tell ourselves and others is "I don't have time." We find time to be there for everyone else, except ourselves. The truth? We do have time! It's there, we just need help to find it. This program can help you find it: Speaking of’s starting in January so time to decide that you want to be a more effective leader and business person in 2021!
