#98 The Most Important Question to Ask Yourself

At the beginning of a new year, many people create new year's resolutions. They are hopeful that they will be able to reach their goals during the year. In this show, I share a different approach to setting goals for the year. So often, resolutions are made from a place of trying to "fix" what is wrong in your life.

Instead, I challenge you to reflect on the past year. Sit down with a hot cup of tea and scroll through all of the pictures on your phone from the past twelve months. Look at all of the adventures, trips, time with family and friends as you revisit the memories. I bet you'll be filled with joy and gratitude at all you experienced in 2023. It is time of gratitude and thanksgiving, but also look at the things you want to change or do differently in the new year. What changes would bring your more health, more joy, more freedom and increase your faith? Once you've answered these questions, ask yourself this simple question. 

What do I need?

What do you need in your life?

What do you need in your spiritual life?

What do you need for your body?

What do you need in your mental and emotional life?

Identify what you need and then decide how you can add it to your life.

In this show, I will share what I discerned that I need for the year and my plan to make sure I have it in abundance.
