It’s the last week of the year and you deserve a big huge CONGRATULATIONS!

A great year it was, and one of the reasons it was great was because of everything you did.

You might be reading this and feel a little perplexed. Don’t!

The reason I say “congratulations” to you is simple — in a few days we get to turn the page on another year.

We’ll put this year in the archives and start all over again, and the new year starts clean and fresh.

Sure, there are plenty of things that you’ve done this year that will impact next year and that’s fine. Nobody gets to start a new year with a completely blank slate.

Regardless of what you did or did not do, it’s important to look at 2013 in a positive light.

Take a few minutes and reflect back on the positive things you accomplished.  Who cares about the negative stuff.  Do you want to go into the new year reflecting on the positive or the negative?

For me it’s an easy answer — the positive!

Each accomplishment you had this past year is foundation for another success in the coming year.

Write down all of the positive things and carry them with you for the first month of the new year.  Carrying them with you will help spur you on to a fast start in the new year.

Your goal is simple: Surpass what you did the year before and the best way to do it is by getting a fast jump on the new year. Too many people take several weeks to gear up after the holidays.

A better approach is to use your success from this year to help get a fast launch in beating your competition.

Congratulations to you for a great year and let me be the first to congratulate you for what will be an even better year for you in 2014!
