As the year comes to a close (and what a year it’s been), I want to encourage you to reflect back on the past 365 days. Now, I know 2020 brought a lot of change to all of us. But are you the type of person already counting down the days until 2020 is over? Or are you celebrating your resilience and growth in spite of all the change and chaos that was 2020?
I hope it’s the latter.
Here’s the thing, while we’ve certainly felt the impact of COVID here at IHML, we also recognize the new opportunities that came from it. In particular, we’ve witnessed some incredibly inspiring transformations this year among our Mastermind students. I mean, I am blown away by the courage and resilience of these women. It’s truly an honor to play a small role on their journey toward living their best life. It’s all I want for them.And I want that for you too.
That’s why I want to share one of those Mastermind success stories here with you today to remind you that even in the craziest of years (I’m looking at you, 2020!) we all have the power to change our lives. You can still scale your business. You can create more time and space for what brings you joy. You can embrace new opportunities to learn and grow. You can transform.I was so excited to have one of our amazing IHML Mastermind students, Rose Lounsbury, on the podcast this week to share how she was able to make 2020 work in her favor. Rose is an example of someone who took 2020 and totally ran with it. Her story is truly inspiring. I mean, this year completely changed her life.
The best part? She was willing to literally share her list of what worked for her and led to one of her most transformational years to date. Don’t worry, I’m going to share some key takeaways from our conversation here with you today.
Remember, it’s great to draw inspiration from other people’s stories. But the only way you’re going to begin to experience change in your own life is through taking action.So, here’s my challenge for you. By the end of this, I want you to have one non-negotiable thing that you are going to start implementing in your life when you’re done reading.
Are you ready?When it comes to business in 2020, Rose took three important steps that helped her step away from a business model that was no longer serving her and following her intuition toward the online business she runs (and loves) today.
So, what worked for her business this year and how can it work for you, too?
- Networking = Growing her audience.
- Taking action.
- Following her intuition.
Rose welcomed just as much change and growth in her personal life. She practiced more gratitude, made more time for things she enjoyed doing, spent more time with her family, and listened to her body. 2020 was an opportunity to live life on her terms, and she doesn’t plan on going back.
What worked for her in her personal life this year and how can you do it too?
- Practicing gratitude.
- Making changes to her health.
- Saying “no”.
Wow. There are many great things in there. I hope you were taking notes! And, if you can believe it, she dives into even more during our conversation on the latest episode of the IHML podcast (You can find it here).
In all seriousness, Rose is a phenomenal example of how learning to trust yourself is a total game changer. 2020 taught her that following your instincts and letting go of your ego and moving through the fears that try to protect it are essential to tapping into your potential and living out your dreams.
Every time I hear Rose talk about her journey through 2020, I am just in complete awe. I hope you were able to take something away from her story that you can apply to your own life or business.
And if 2020 wasn’t the year you hoped it’d be, don’t get too hung up on it. Learn, grow, and get ready to start making changes for a better year ahead.
Remember, it’s never too late to live out your dreams.
P.S. If you are ready to transform your life, but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you’re just looking for resources and support? Whatever the thing is, we want to help. The IHML Mastermind helped transform Rose’s life by giving her the tools and support she needed to step into her power and continue living her best life (so much so that she signed up for another year in the program!). If you’re curious to see if we can do that for you too, you can learn more about our Mastermind here and apply for one of our remaining two spots.
