Make New Choices in the New Year – TPS441

The new year is soon to be upon us. In this episode, I ask you to decide what choices you want to make in the new year as to who you want to be and what you want to be doing. What changes do you want to make?


We have no idea what our lives or our world are going to look like in the coming year.
There’s going to be a new normal, but we have no idea what normal is going to look like.
Covid has given us the opportunity of reevaluating everything in our life. Do we really want to go back to what was, or do we want to create something new that is more satisfying?
It’s hard to set goals when you have no idea what the future is going to look like. I suggest that instead of setting doing goals that you set feeling goals.
The one thing that you have control over and the power to change is your internal environment.
What we are all going through, provides us with the opportunity to ask who we want to be and what we want to change. Change is happening whether you wanted to or not.
What is it that you can do to create some certainty for yourself?
It is impossible to create specific goals when you have no idea what the external environment is going to be.
I’m going to ask you – if you’re willing – to examine your internal environment and decide what choices for change you want to make in the new year.
This is the time for choice. You are where you are because of the choices you have made and now you can make different choices that will allow you to move in a different direction.
Every choice that you make has an emotional component.
We have been given the opportunity, at this juncture in time, to examine our lives and make new choices.
What will it take for you to be the best version of yourself today?
If we all make changes together, it will affect the entire world.

Humans have an ingrained need to feel safe, which is difficult in the current environment. In this episode, I offer suggestions to help you create a habit of feeling safe.


It’s pretty hard to feel safe when your world seems to be falling apart.
Feeling safe is a matter of brain training.
Safe is a feeling, not a situation.
When I became aware of not feeling safe in certain situations I decided to teach myself to feel safe.
First, have you ever felt safe?
Sit still and do nothing and notice the busyness in your mind and make a decision that you will teach yourself to feel safe.
Entrepreneurship often feels unsafe.
Our brains are wired to always be looking for danger.
It helps to assess the situation and re-perceive the situation.
Out in nature is a good place to practice feeling safe.
After you assess a situation, take a deep breath and determine what action you need to take, if any.
