The greatest block in your life is YOU.
The greatest solution to that block is also YOU.
If you do not learn from your experiences, and take control of your own energy (your beliefs, thoughts, feelings and actions) then you will surely continue to reap the same results and repeat the same patterns.
If those results and patterns are working for you, then great!
If they're not, then below are a set of wise questions to help you tap into your own inner wisdom for the answers that will propel you into the year ahead as a clearer, more inspired, empowered and insightful you.
Everything in your life stems from your energy and the paradigm through which you view the world.
So it's time to own that and POWER UP.

Take Your Answers to these Wise Questions & Set Your Vision
After you've answered these questions, it's time to create a vision for yourself for your future.
Let your answers above inform your vision for what is most important to you for the next 6-12 months, in terms of:
- how you want to be
- what you want to do, change, achieve
- what actions are the highest priority
- what positive energy and success mindset you want to live from, so that it flows on to create the results you deserve and desire.
Write your vision down! Make it real by taking it out of your imagination and putting it on paper. That act is one of declaration, taking something from an idea and turning it into a tangible written vision. This focuses your attention on what you want.'Where attention goes, energy flows. And where energy flows, something grows!' - Bernadette LogueClick To Tweet
