Hello and Happy New Year,
The Kool Auntie is back, and boy have I missed you. (BIGG HUGS)
It has been such a long time since I’ve written on this forum but I haven’t been very far away (check me out on IG, FB and TWITTER @ElanLifeCoaching #TheKoolAuntie for daily connections)
With that said, I’M BAAACCKK.
The last two months have been a whirlwind of trainings, coaching, mentoring, et al. I have spent the end of 2019 working hard to be the best Auntie that I can be and I have been working with others to help them be their best selves.
I am happy to report that I have ended 2019 with a BANG and I am even more excited for what 2021 will bring…Aren’t you?
Contrary to many memes that I have seen, I love seeing all the NEW YEAR NEW ME posts on social media.
I love seeing all of your New Year Resolutions. I love seeing the diet/exercise plans and the budgeting goals.
Where some people roll their eyes at the thought of people setting these goals, my heart is full when I see people being aware of their needs, their wants and them making a conscious effort toward self-improvement
I have coined 2020 THE YEAR OF CLEAR.
Being clear about what you need and want is key. Clarity is the first in achieving the life you truly want to live.
I have encouraged my clients to be very clear about what they want to achieve in 2020 and to also become self-aware.
“The first step to getting what you want is to have the courage to get rid of what you don’t.” —Zig Ziglar
It is imperative that you become self-aware of your strengths and weakness. Be very clear about what you want, desire and need
- Do you need a mentor?
- Do you need to further your education?
- Do you need to remove certain people from your life?
- Do you need to enhance your networking?
Only you know!
Lying to yourself won’t help
As we move into the next 366 days (leap year) I am asking everyone:
- To be clear about what you want to achieve
- Set S.M.A.R.T. goals (Specific Measurable Actionable Realistic Timely)
- Be aware of your needs
- Make a list of what you want to stop, start and continue doing
- Be courageous
- Be consistent
So, get out those journals. Create those vision bards. Open a new planner.
DO WHATEVER IT TAKES
Go ahead and make those New Year Resolutions.

Remember, if for any reason you fall off the wagon. forgiver yourself. get back up, start over.
ITS OK. YOU’RE HUMAN
