Happy New Year!
I’m excited for 2021. Are you?
However, my excitement doesn’t come from the fact that turning over into a new year fixed any of our worldly problems – because, unfortunately, it didn’t. On January 1, 2021, we continued to deal with the same issues we were on December 31, 2020.
My excitement comes from the symbolic feeling of shedding the mental weight I carried around with me for most of the year. I had a challenging year – professionally, personally, mentally. We all did, just within different circumstances and experiences.
2020 was a perfect storm of opportunities to recognize how my Connector voice handles stress, failed communication, derailed plans, and conflict. Some of my hard days were because I let my negative hard-wired tendencies win over my mindset.
Last year exposed who we are. It exposed where we put our hope, what we find our identity in, if you are someone who only talks about being a better leader or a person who takes action.
Did you leave 2020 realizing you are not who you thought you were?
If the answer is ‘yes,’ first of all, refrain from judging yourself. Give yourself grace while learning from your experiences. It starts with self-awareness and knowing who you are.

I learned a lot about myself last year and have spent time reflecting on where I fell short of who I want to be and who I need to be for my 5 Circles of Influence. This year, I’m excited and ready to take those lessons and continue my upward journey to being a 100X Leader for those I lead.
I recently heard someone say that 2020 was an awakening of what needs to change and in 2021 we can move towards the change. Within your control, what do want to change this year?
