I am celebrating finishing a year of Monday Motivators which focused on a 12-month theme of “2014-The Year of BIG.” I’m wondering how many of you were reached with my BIG Life principles. I am curious if I clearly communicated what I mean by a “BIG Life.”
Each month this year, I focused on a different aspect of BIG Life. Themes included BIG: Thoughts (Jan); Goals (Feb); Energy (March); Focus (April); Learning (May); Staying Power (June); Change (July); Action (August); Choices (September); October—(I took a little break); Resilience (November); Celebration (December). If you missed any of these issues, you can find them on the Office Dynamics Blog and view my videos on my Joan Burge BIG Life YouTube Channel.
I want to give you a special gift as the year ends. Here are some core principles on living a BIG Life from my book, Give Yourself Permission to Live a BIG Life.
BIG Life Principles
- The depth and breadth of your life is more important than the number of years you live.
- You are designed for greatness. Are you allowing yourself to become all you were destined to be?
- Be grateful every day—not just when life is going your way. Every single day we can find several things for which to be grateful. These should be written in a special journal at the end of the day before you turn out the light. It will help you sleep better! This practice is especially important when you have had a rough day.
- A BIG Life is supported by 5 Pillars.
