It’s still the 31st December here in the UK. A time to reflect on the year that’s coming to a close and look forward to the new year. This is what I find works well for me.
I take a few minutes to write down what I have achieved, what I’ve learnt and what I am grateful for. A couple of weeks ago I met with a few musicians in a local pub and we did this together. It was amazing how long our list of achievements became. I also asked my partner because he often has a different perspective and comes up with things I find difficult to acknowledge or I’d forgotten. So my list got even longer!
So thinking back on last year, it has been a wonderful year. We fulfilled our plan to spend a long time in the States and it was even better than we had imagined. One of the highlights was recording in Studio 19 in Nashville with one of the loveliest artists I have ever met. Another was driving across the Mojave Dessert. On our return I wrote my book and launched The Fan Formula.
I am grateful to you for joining my email list this year and I feel happy knowing I’m helping you achieve the success you want in your music career, whether it’s in a big or small way.
So now I’m sitting here in my kitchen with a cup of coffee imagining what my life will be like in a year’s time. I’m thinking about what have I achieved, what’s going on around me. I’m feeling happy and grateful for the things I have accomplished. I am imaging what these achievements will enable me to do in the future. I’m not worrying about ‘how’ I will get there. I’m just visualising how things will be. I’m make my future a reality now. I’m allowing it to happen.
In the new year I challenge myself to get out there in a much bigger way …
With my very best wishes for the coming year,
