2015: A High Note Ending
In music, there is a term called, “hitting the high note”. It is considered the defining note for a soprano singer’s voice. When sung correctly, this note garners the most attention. Hitting the high note gives the audience goosebumps, makes them cheer and applaud. It is also the note that when consistently sung, can place a singer in the category of being “one of the greatest”.
Think about some of the singers you know who hit the high notes.
Now think about the type of “high note” you want to end 2015 on.
With less than 3 months left in 2015, the holiday soon upon us and the New Year rapidly approaching, this is the perfect time to stop, reflect and put your intentions for the remainder of the year into action.
Most people wait until January 1st to set goals and New Year’s resolutions. But why wait? Why not set into motion the things you want to accomplish with your God-inspired dreams now?
How about ending 2015 in a big way, hitting your own high notes?
I shared some of this idea in my monthly newsletter, Notes From a Dream Maker, a few weeks ago. I also gave a free resource tool to help with reflecting and intention setting for these last three months. I am making it available to you as well at the end of this post.
What happens often is that during these last months, the pace of life tends to shift to a time of celebration. Gatherings with family and friends occur more frequently and depending upon where you live, there is a distinct change in the air with the rhythm of Thanksgiving and Christmas taking center stage.
There are dinners to be made, presents to be wrapped, cookies to be baked and parties to attend. It is a sign that one year is coming to a close and another is on the horizon patiently awaiting its turn. Focus shifts to other things that need to be done and dreams… well, they get put on the back burner of life only to start heating again in the New Year.
I have come to realize that waiting to do things that we can do now is a waste of our precious commodity called time.
In an earlier post, I wrote about time’s consistency to move on and to wait for no one. Using this vital resource to serve others, to live our lives aligned with our purpose and to follow our dreams; always requires us to be moving forward no matter the time of the year.
I encourage you to set aside some time and to reflect on your dreams. Ask yourself the questions that require an honest and thoughtful assessment of your dream makers’ path. Where you are right now in the process of making your dreams a reality?
I would also encourage you to look at what you can do for the remainder of 2015. How would you define your own high note? What can you do to garner your own applause and standing ovations for honoring your dreams? (By the way, I am talking about you ending the year being able to recognize your own accomplishments and being able to proud of yourself for what you have been able to do, even if no one else recognizes it.)
Let your high note be the things that will make your heart soar as the year comes to an end; creating momentum and fueling your dreams for the year to come.
I then would encourage you to set some BIG intentions for 2016. Clearly crafting out how you will take dream making to the next level in the coming year.
What is going to be your high note? What tune will you be singing about your God inspired dreams? Send me an email, I would love to hear from you.
