2. FEATURE: How Far Did You Come in 2005?

Before you go on to conquer the world in 2006, don’t you think it’s important to celebrate how far you have come this year.

Look back.

What have you accomplished?

What are you proud of?

And so importantly – what are you grateful for? (Because gratitude not only feels good – it generates growth.)

I’ll start. Below I’ll share what I’m proud to have accomplished this year, and what I’m grateful for.

But don’t read it passively. Oh no.

At the bottom I’m going to ask you to write YOUR Celebratory for 2005.

As you read mine, ideas will spark for what you can celebrate this year. Then I’ll ask you to go straight to the blog and post for the world to see.

Action – now it’s time for YOU

Don’t just read my Celebratory, make this valuable for you.

Post your Celebratory where we can all acknowledge you, here.

Whether you spend 1 minute or 1 day on it doesn’t matter.

Just post it.

Remember, where there is gratitude and appreciation, there is growth. It’s critical to chew and swallow what you’ve received this year, before asking for more.

If you find yourself judging your achievements – good! This is an opportunity to look deeper at what you can be grateful for. AND – to light the fire in your belly to really make 2006 count.

Go ahead – post your Celebratory now.

50,000 people receive my newsletters. And about 10,000 people open a given one. If only 10% of you post your Celebratory on the blog right now, we’ll have 1,000 pieces of wonderful acknowledgment, celebration and gratitude.

Will yours be one of them?

Your Friends

I really want to read what my friends are celebrating this year. So I’m going to forward this invitation to them (no, for some strange reason they are not all subscribed already) and ask them all to post as well.

If you really want to start a gratitude movement, I invite you to do the same.(Hint: be sure and tell them to add their name to the post, so you can find it on the blog!)

Love and gratitude,

David

    I was delighted to read your newsletter. I am one of your subscribers who reads devotedly, yet has never taken the time to comment.

    I thought it appropriate to read about “Gratitude” in your newsletter as I just finished sealing and mailing copies of a book titled “Gratitude” to some very special coaches whom have made my world a better place just by being near.

    I am celebrating my 1st year as a career coach, and I am thankful for the wonderful coaches and mentors who encouraged and supported me and for my clients who are celebrating their own successes!

    I am celebrating my Grandmother who passed away the day after Thanksgiving. Her presence will be sorely missed, but the love she gave and the passion with which she lived her life will be with us forever.

    I am celebrating my family and appreciating every moment I get to spend with them.

    I have a lot to celebrate and appreciate the opportunity to share here!

  8. Mark Says:

    I’ve had a difficult year this year both personally and business-wise.

    I’ve increased my self-awareness dramatically and not always liked what I learned! But I’m making big changes in my family relationships, which has meant owning up and a lot of patience.

    I’ve gained huge insight into how and where I want to take my Personal Change Business. As a reslt of the increased self awareness I have a clear vision of what I’m capable of and how I am going to help people change their lives. I have some hugely ambitious projects, but now have the self esteem and confidence to make them happen.

    2005 has been really challenging financially and personally, but 2006 is going to be awesome!

  9. Carol Says:

    This year I have “released” 120 lbs. to the Univerise!
    I can walk farther than my mailbox now!
    I am risking in interpersonal relationships! I told a “crush” that I am interested in him. He told me that he’s been watching me “shrink” and is interested also. So…I’ve been flirting…alot!
    I have been taking risks about work also. Telling my supervisors what it is I want and where I intent to be by the end of 2006.

    Ah the power of intention!

    Al – great to see your name popping up everywhere. Can’t shake you :-) . You said: “Need to work on accepting the very judgemental people who don’t want to accept anyone that disagrees with them.” Now you wouldn’t be judging yourself for how you feel about them, would you? :-)

    Personality is more confident
    Challenged myself by continuing to expand my own new business
    Spiritually grew by developing my meditation and buddha awareness
    Utilised my Creative side!

    Worked hard at marketing my business
    Tried out teaching, both meditation and web design
    Built and sold web sites which I have never done before
    Had coaching clients which I’ve never had before
    Money is starting to go the right direction!

  29. Alison (Southampton) UK Says:

    I’ve recently moved (out of London, UK, to a coastal city) and have been spending time finding out what will work (self-employed) in this new area, and what won’t.

    I always need to ‘follow my heart’ and I’ve recently been coming to terms with letting go of my former passion (counselling/coaching for 10 years)and trying to find new areas.

    With the help of meditation and lots of self-development techniques that I’ve learnt and used over the years, I’ve found a new passion, Reiki healing. Alongside writing (I’ve had my 2nd self-help book published this year), running ‘Meditation for Self-Esteem’ classes and bits of freelance magazine work, I hope to be able to get sufficient interest in Reiki to make this a major part of my income.

    This year, I’ve learnt to let go of ideas that haven’t worked, to give problems over to the Universe, to be a bit more humble, to acknowledge feeling stuck and live with it.

    I have a fabulous relationship and home life – Gratitude is SO important! My daily affirmation is; ‘I love my life – bringing joy and fulfilment into everything I do’

    Take care

  30. Business Class Consulting Says:

    I am celebrating that early in the year I took a decision to end a five year very long-distance relationship (I am in Greece and he is in Canada) that was actually dragging for about a year due to a number of circumstances. He is a great man that offered me support and love and helped me through some very troubled times. I am celebrating that we were able to truly become good friends and continue to communicate.
    I am celebrating that 6 months later when I told my self that’s it with all these men that can’t handle it that I am dynamic and quite smart and I thought that I am just fine by my self, then Boom! I met a wonderful man, Pantelis, and we started a wonderful relationship. He is a very special and wonderful person and is offering me so much more than I ever expected to receive from a relationship and what I find refreshing and exciting is that he is not threatened by my personality.
    I am celebrating that this year I handled my relationship with my ex-husband (we have been divorced for 6 years) very well and even though he still doesn’t pay alimony for our 10-year old daughter, at least he is more consistent in trying to see her more often and develop a closer relationship with her.
    I am celebrating that after a 17 year career in top management positions I took the decision to resign and I am launching my own Business Consulting Company. Even though almost everybody thinks I am crazy to leave a steady salary and get into free enterprising, as the economy in Greece is quite slow, I believe that I have the potential to do well and that there is room for me in the market and I am willing to fight for it.
    I am celebrating that through this change of career I realized that a number of people that I knew from business or socially, proved to be really strong supporters and are offering me their advice and proposals of collaborating with them on business projects. I am celebrating that I was able to already get a few good contracts on interesting and fun projects that allow me to feel a bit more secure about my finances on this first year of getting into my own business.
    I am celebrating my parents who offer me and my daughter their love and support with no limits and are very special people.
    I am celebrating that I feel really good and positive and it really shows! I lost weight and everyone says that I glow!

  31. Ghyslaine Says:

    What a lovely idea! I am celebrating looking after myself by leaving a draining job; my wonderful supportive husband who is helping me set up a website for my coaching cum training business.

WEETU – a wonderful organisation who have encouraged and supported me in launching myself on the world.

    It was great timing to get your newsletter and think about celebrating 2005!

    This was a big year for me — I left an executive role in my company just months before a big promotion in order to live my dreams. My career was so fast-paced that I became all work and no play. Then I learned some tricks to work smart, have a fulfilling life and create radiant health. I wanted to share this with others.

    My celebration is moving from the chaos and fears of transition to the peace and fulfillment of living my dream as a business success coach.

    My celebration is selling my unnecessarily big house and all of my unnecessary “stuff.”

    My celebration is buying a “just right” sized house in the White Mountains of New Hampshire AND my tiny dream cottage in the Caribbean.

    My celebration is “no more winters” while my husband and I live in our tiny cottage on the Island of Saba.

    My celebration is embracing simplicity and realizing that I don’t miss my fast-paced former lifestyle or “stuff.”

    My celebration is getting to work with my ideal clients, who are making amazing accomplishments in their own lives.

    Thank you David and others who have touched me with your wisdom and belief in a better life!

    To everyone else — I wish you a prosperous and fulfilling 2006.

    I competed in 11 Natural bodybuilding shows – got my pro card! I’ve gone to N.Y. 3 times and love it – may want to move there! I now realize my ‘box is full’ with relationship mishaps (from one person)and the very next ‘mishap’ is my message from the universe to ‘GET OUT’! I pray that I will hear, listen and act!

    I email these comments as if I don’t do it now I probably will not do it later. That is one of the highlights that has happened for me this year. Actually it really only happened in the past 2 months, as i am now working with a FANTASTIC coach and mentor who has made me believe in myself again. I now can see that I will be a successful “peak performance ” coach.There is probably a lot more good things that have happened to me this year but I just wanted to get some comment on to this board.
    BTW, there was a lot of bad things happened also but I am not going to dwell on them.

I secured money, hired a lawyer, bought the option to a play that I will produce next year. Taking care of my 96 yr. old father in a nuring home. Ended a three yr. old relationship with an ex-girlfriend after she hated me for saving her life(she’s bipolar, didn’t take her medicine, went into state hospital saying she wanted to kill herself, came out hating me, so good-bye)

    After some significant changes in my health and lifestyle and being hospitalized in May as well as recovering from a concussion, I am:
    - going to spin classes 2 x week and attending a body sculpting class every Wednesday;
    - I continue to watch what I eat and drink in moderation
    - Overall am feeling better physically than I have in quite a few months and am grateful each and every day that my health is back on track.
    My Relationship with my boyfriend of almost 2 years continues to grow stronger and we continue to love each other more with every breath.
    As for my Professional house
    - I’m still working on getting that in order but am grateful to have the income source I do have and happy that it sustains me.
    - I continue to give money away that I don’t have but it is something I have always done for those less fortunate. (My boyfriend says I am definitely going to heaven for my endless generosity).
    - I believe in paying it forward and practicing random acts of kindness and know that for every kind deed or word I share it will come back to me twofold.
    - I attended some great workshops in Phoenix including the “What the Bleep Conference” which was empowering. I have met some amazing people through my new beginnings as a life coach.
    - I look forward to 2006 excited with the fact that there are thousands of people I have yet to meet and the growth I will gain from knowing them will be priceless.
    - I will greet 2006 with the continued focus and the words of Anne Frank “How lovely to think that no one needs wait a moment, we can start now, start slowly changing the world”.
    Cheers to everyone for their accomplishments and may your 2006 continue to be rich with the idea that a Big Vision Creates Magic & Possibility.
    Sincerely and with Blessings.

    Well, great idea! :-) ))
    It’s always the right moment to feel grateful for all the blessings in our life…

    I feel grateful for my body: I’m always healthy, all of my organs works beautifully, I can run and dance and bike, and it’s a brilliant “home” for my soul.

    I’m deeply grateful for my mind: keen, smart, open and growing. I always learn new things, embrace new ideas, I’m able to understand and support other people, I have got a powerful intuition, and I have learnt to balance mind, heart and soul inside me.

    I feel rich because all the women who loved me, and for having now a girlfriend happy to relate with me.

    I feel privileged because I can live my life to my pace, waking up late, dreaming a lot, working just enough, and giving myself all the time I need.

    I’m happy for all the “stuff” in my life: big or little things making my life easier and pleasurable.

    I feel blissed for my faith in the Universal Intelligence guiding everything in his misterious and marvelous dance; and for knowing that We Are All One.

    I’m grateful for new idea and hints and opportunities coming into my life every day, David Wood and his work included. :-)

    The year 2005:
    1. Done lots of community service for the blind, for the less fortunate in Tondo, Manila and for other places within the Philippines- doing demo and teaching them on the benefits of massage therapy and its potential income.
    2. Taught a lot of would-be massage and spa therapists and were able to recommend them to employers (without collecting fees for recommendations).
    3. Done a lot of travels just to be able to do what I love to do, teaching and training in the realm of massage and spa.
    4. Met a lot of kind hearted, honorable and warm people whose heart is in helping people here in the Philippines come out of poverty through health & wellness.
    5. Helped my students to hone their skills and gain employment in spas and wellness centers.
    6. Compiled over a thousand job network opportunities for my students to contact for employment…and they did not have to pay me for it!

    strangely enough I failed during 2005 to develop as much as I had hoped

    you see in 2004 I jumped into a great big adventure – running a completely Japanese team in Tokyo – and only managed to tread water (well at least I didnt sink!) We all learned a huge amount and I re-learned modesty

    the notable success though is that I have decided that power-managing is not my thing and I will restart my life aged 47 in 2006

    mid-life crisis – no Im far too young and confident for that but a real sanity check now that i can see where I really belong

  63. Martin Treanor Says:

    Sometimes, we forget to be grateful for the roads we have travelled, the sights we have seen and the things we have learned along the journey.

    2005 was the best year of my life. After many years of heartache, confusion and uncertainty, early in 2005 the roads opened for me, I found my life partner, my agent, my short stories are published and acclaimed, my first novel is due for publication. I have many things to celebrate and be grateful for.

    But if asked what was the main accomplishment of my year, it would be my realisation and recovery from my years as an alcoholic. With that one single realisation back in January, the universe opened its doors to me, not that they’d ever been closed, it was just my negativity, failure to realise that I was the sole influence in my life and lack of vision that was steering me from the path.

    Now I can look back, in profound gratitude and see that we are what we think and that true success can be defined in a loving, grateful, celebration of the one single fact that we are our own destiny, to vision what we can and will achieve, and be true to ourselves and all we encounter.

    All our journeys are important, as are the destinations but the lessons we learn, that help us grow to take on the next chapter of our lives, are the signposts that keep us true.

    So, it is with a huge heart and contentment that I celebrate 2005 and wait, in anticipation for 2006 and beyond.

    So celebrate it all, be grateful for everything and may you all walk in the light… and as the man once said, ‘When you can walk on water, take the boat.’

    I am celebrating being and feeling alive. Diagnosed with breast cancer in April this year, I have learned to be grateful for my brothers and their wives for supporting me, for my friends for reminding me of what I’m about, for my 5 year-old nephew and his wisdom (When the sun shines, we all shine! amongst other beauties), for my 2-year old niece for loving all as they are, for my 12 year-old niece for the absolute delight in her voice when she hears my voice, for my parents for the resolve they instilled in me, for my uncle in the USA who said you can beat this, for the wonderful healers who have crossed my path and most of all for my partner Tom loving me when I was unlovable, for throwing me those lifelines when I no longer saw any purpose to my existence.

    My warmest wishes for love and peace to all as the year passes and the new enters

    This year I am greatful to be at home near my family after moving around for 5 years. In the year since I”ve been back I have accomplished many things, including 7 from my “list of things to do” of 100. All were rewarding but my favorites were being an extra in a movie and going on a blind date!

    Although that date didn’t produce a lasting relationship I am involved with a fantastic man now, who loves life and strives for goals as much as I do, I feel like I can learn a lot from him!

    I also bought a Kayak, which was not on my list, but should have been! It was my main source of relaxation over the summer months.

    I have volunteered in the community as much as possible this year, and hope to do even more next year. As far as work goes I have two great jobs and am making more moeny than I ever have.

    The most important thing I’ve done this year is gone back to Univeristy. I love learning, and I’m keeping my dream of being a life coach alive!

    This year was fantastic, next year will be even better. Great to read all your stories as well! Happy 2006!

    I started meditating using the Holosync program, designed by Bill Harris and I am on my second level. It has helped me tremendously.
    I have lost some weight. I have always been a size 2, then when I got sick, the meds slowed my metabolism down and I gained 50 lbs! I am now back to a size 4 and I am working towards regaining my slim but toned physique. It is very hard to do this because I have surgery every 4 months. It takes just under 3 weeks to recover. Sometimes I feel like I have to start at the begining after every surgery. I try to stay positive and this has allowed me to be able to go to the gym 2x per week.
    I changed my relationship with my mother which was very difficult. I had to cut off all contact for almost the entire year. I am now in a healthier relationship with her.
    I helped my son go through his first surgery and the doctor told me I should become a nurse!
    I helped my dog get through 5 different health problems and he is now feeling better than ever!!
    I have started to redecorate my home and I feel very proud of the rooms I have completed.
    I have written a positive thinking book with my son. In June, we started writing each night in our book. It is a combination of positive thoughts and prayers.
    I have created a candle ritual for our prayer each night.
    My son and I have written 12 Zen prayers that we say each night.
    Merry Christmas and Happy 2006

    My Celebratory list:

    My continuous growing relationship with Christ and my ability to trust Him more.

    My family who are always there for me and around alot. I know there will come a day when I won’t get to see them as often as I do now.

    The new friends that have crossed my path and entered into my circle of friendship.

    The many things I have learned by diligently being open to being coached myself by so many people.

    I am grateful for all of the resources that have helped me build my two websites and start a business (including this website – thank you so much).

    My ministry is kicking off and I am so excited to help and coach so many young people.

    The special relationship that I have started with a special person who I see in my future.

    I am celebrating the fact I am alive. Amazing with what 2005 handed out and who I was exposed to. I am thankful for the opportunity to be grateful for those whose light showed me my jealousy, whose love showed me my emptiness, judgment that revealed my irrational actions, and dedication and passion that grasped me with an almost unbearable stranglehold of my mediocrity. Certainly 2006 has much in store but not until 2005 is giving a proper burial and release. To all, be well. Be excellent and let the beauty you love be what you do.

    Hi, and congratulations to you, David, and to all your readers. The comments are awesome.

    My highlight of the year has been to finally grow out my fingernails after 57 years of biting them.

    What helped more than anything else was swallowing my pride (I was embarrassed at drawing any attention to my nails) and going for a manicure. The girl was wonderful, and did a great job, which helped me to accept my nails the way they actually were and to take care of them.

    Have a great celebration of life, everyone.

    Celebrating:
    + A fantastic year in distance running, nominated (not selected) for most improved runner in my county – not bad at 49! Huge thanks to all my team-mates (www.haylerunners.co.uk) and my wife for her understanding and soothing my pre-race nerves.

    + My family which is so creative – 2 boys who are at university and dipping their toes into the adult world. My wife of 23 years who never ceases to amaze with her changes of career direction and capacity to be cheerful, loving and wise.

    + My friends who I never see as often as I would like and yet are always supportive, insightful and happy to share their lives with me when we meet up.

    Supporting:
    + My eldest son who had a very difficult time after his first year at university. I’m so proud how he has resolved it by taking a year out and spending more time with his loved one. My youngest son successfully changed college course and is so happy studying photography.

    + All the motivated athletes I coach, young and old. Sharing in their goals and triumphs and endless search for the perfect race , what dedication!

    Gratitude:
    + Still healthy, still willing to try out new ideas. Still have the energy to look for the work that I was put here to do. 2006 is my year!

    + Finally completing all the legal duties left over after my mother passed away. Making sure that my sister who is in 24 hour care has an excellent quality of life! Supporting my other sisters through our shared grief.

    + All the newsletters, websites, emails, books by life coaches – especially David Wood, Kate James and Fiona Harrold. Thanks guys for all your words of inspiration!

    Career:
    + In 2005 I had opportunity to try out new activities(personal trainer, coach, running club secretary). I’d love to take forward some of these wonderful experiences from 2005 and make a career out of them in 2006. Know any good life coaches?

    + The opportunity to try out a new business idea (webdesign) from which I learnt that I wanted to do something else. No such thing as failure, only feedback!

    + I end 2005 working as a teaching assistant in a local school with many children with behavioural and learning difficulties. I wonder why I made that choice and some days feel so overwhelmed by the behaviour of the children – what do I do next? In the words of the song…’should I stay or should I go?…

    What’s next for me in 2006?:
    + More training, more marathons (maybe a triathlon) – more sharing, more caring, more loving, more spirituality, more adventures!
    Listening to SwissGroove Radio http://www.swissgroove.ch/en/ such positive music! I want to learn to surf too :-)

    Fabulous year!!!! I will never forget! I suffered the first 3 months at a job where I was not using my skills and with roomates whom I no longer connected with at a level of integrity and empowerment. I left the job, created a job of my dreams, (created a citywide mentoring program for employees) and created a cute 2 bedroom home with an office. My expenses are less than when I was with my roomates and most of all- I HAVE CREATED A STRESS FREE LIFE FOR MYSELF.

    For dying to my selfishness to meet the needs of my son who struggles with OCD and Tourette’s.

    For choosing to homeschool him so he would find life at his own pace, instead of living by an institutionalized pace.

    For making a courageous decision to leave my marriage if my husband didn’t get help with his OCD…and he did.

    For just never giving up my dream on being a coach, even when I only had one client.

    For learning the fine balance of being content with dreaming of more.

    For stopping my insane spiritual drive to find God and being still and quiet enough to let me know He has found me.

    For the bitter and the sweet lessons of love.

    For resources like Solution Box, Site Build It, and others who have shortened my learning curve.

    What a year! Actually, every year is outstanding and different, but, I don’t always Recognise, Appreciate and Cherish all the wonderful adventures of the past!

    Was top of the class in my Calling!
    Three years after reading Fiona Harrold’s Be Your Own Life Coach, doing every single exercise in the book and knowing that I am a Life Coach, I finally stumbled into FUTURE and jumped in fully, managing to juggle a Professional Soccer career and a switch from part to full-time working in an International company.
    At the end of November I graduated and am now Officially Coach!

    I took my Italian girlfriend to California, caught up with some good friends after many years and re-connected with the States, met up with my parents and saw my father’s new land!

    Am on the Sixth month of the Holosync program and feeling more connected and focused.

    Have quit my full-time job to dedicate myself fully to playing soccer again, follow my dream and smile all day. Am a professional athlete again!!!

    Am ready to travel the world doing what I love and have set the bases for work no matter where I am or what beach I may be drinking papaya juice on!

    My internet site is starting to take shape thanks to Your Tips!!

    What a great Life, I am smiling broadly and I haven’t even written down half of what I have done this Year!

    We have many things to celebrate this year. My wife’s successful operation for a bowel cancer heads the list. Then with friends and family we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary – we did it twice in cities on the opposite shores of Australia. Then in July I, our son and his elder son, joined a party of 12 others (with guides and porters) to walk the Kokoda Trail in Papua. This is a 96 km walk through tropical jungle, with an overall climb of 5,500 metres (and down again). Apart from being one of the most ardous adventure walks still available for people to do, it was a personal achievement as I am 79.

    1. Ending “jobs”, which I’ve always had, using at-home employment (but still “employment” as a bridge to cross to now full-time coaching & consulting, all within the year.
    2. Peacefully and “win-win” ending marriage, moving out, buying own BEAUTIFUL house that I created a vision of a year and a half ago in a coaching training.
    3. Brought closure to VERY incomplete relationship that ended 18 years ago, which has brought a renewal to it that I never, EVER would have been able to imagine and am having A Great Relationship
    4. Returned to Participating in Landmark Education seminars to forward myself through their incredible coaching.
    5. Left the new Charter high school I helped start with the systems and processes to continue successfully without me.
    6. Responded heroically to my 9-year-old son’s request for a mom who can pick him up right after school so we can be together more and not be rushed and tired; attending all field trips as a bonus.
