Happy New Year!
Wow! Where did 2012 go. Is it just me, or did the past year (actually 4 or 5) just fly by?
I’ve actually talked to a few experts who proclaim that time actually is speeding up, but I don’t know enough about that to comment.
All I know is that it’s hard to believe another year has come and gone, and I’m looking forward to what 2013 holds.
2013 is a Lucky Year
My wife is Italian, and in Italian culture 13 is a lucky number. We got married on the 13th, and so I expect 2013 will be a fantastic year as well.
I feel the energy shifting on the planet, and while I expect there’s going to be some substantial turbulence around the globe, I also feel it’s part of a positive evolution that our planet and species will experience.
I foresee 2013 bringing some major transitions in the global financial markets. This current fiat currency experiment that has been playing out for better than 40 years now is in it’s end days. I don’t know (and I don’t think anyone else really does either) when it will end, but 2013 could very well be the year.
I sincerely hope the transition will be peaceful and smooth, although I don’t really see how the world can shift to a whole new financial system without some major bumps in the road. Hopefully through my efforts with the Money Mentor Academy I’ll be able to help as many people as possible make a smooth transition and weather the storm relatively unscathed.
For me personally, I’m looking to 2013 to be a breakthrough year in many areas. Financially I have set some lofty goals because my focus has shifted to how I can provide more value to more people. Not that I didn’t have that focus before, just that I see how instrumental it is to my success in a clearer way now.
I also see it being a breakthrough year for me in my confidence to step out and share my gifts, talents and expertise in a bigger way. I know that in past years I have isolated myself, and doing so has hindered my growth. It’s time to step up and lead in a the way I know I’m capable of doing.
Personally, I have set a goal to be a better father and a husband. In 2013 I will spend more quality time with my wife and kids, enjoying their company and strengthening the bond we have.
Physically, 2012 was a year of highs and lows. On the low end, I was feeling low energy and had reached the lowest weight I’ve been since high school (I know, that sounds like a dream for most – quite the opposite for me though). On the flip side, I completed a full 3 months of 6 day a week workouts, and was able to put on over 10lbs of lean muscle. I not only looked better, but more importantly felt better in my own skin. In 2013, I’m looking to reach my optimal weight in a fit, strong, flexible body.
Over the next week or so, I will be working on fine tuning my goals for the year and designing a gameplan to achieve them. If you haven’t set your goals for the year yet, now would be a great time. People with written goals achieve more, and have more success than those who don’t. Be sure to write out your goals so you can look back over them sometime in the future after they’ve come true and feel the joy in knowing that was the first necessary step in achieving them.
Make 2013 your best year yet!
