Soar to New Heights in the New Year

Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.

—Leonardo Da Vinci

Soar to New Heights in the New Year

Every time I step onto a plane I think of my dad, who was a private pilot. Growing up, I spent a lot of time in and around planes—either traveling with my dad on his work flights (thanks to his family-friendly bosses who didn’t mind letting his wife and kids tag along) or hanging out with him on the local tarmac and watching planes take off and land (something we did almost every weekend!). 

 

My love of travel was established at a very early age, and to this day I can’t look at a plane without wondering where it’s going and what adventures await those inside. I experience the same feeling for myself too…when the plane takes flight, I feel like I’m off on an adventure—even if it’s a work trip and I’m doing a quick turn (doing the job then immediately coming home)!

 

Even with all the hassles associated with flying nowadays, I still love it. For me, it’s more than a method of transportation, though. In flying I also see useful ways to think about how we live our lives. 

 

I think of flight as a metaphor for success.

 

The end of the year is a prime time for reflecting on how we can grow, improve, and succeed even more in the next year. And just like a plane overcoming the laws of gravity, it’s possible for us to overcome challenges and create a new flight plan for our lives. I know the end of the year is crazy (and the start of a new year requires us to hit the ground running), but promise me that you’ll spend some time thinking about what YOU want to achieve in 2024. 

 

Where do you want to be a year from now?

Soar to New Heights in the New Year

Promise me you’ll take a moment to reflect on your flight plan and if you need to make adjustments to soar to the altitude you desire. Resolve to make 2024 the year you aim a little higher. Set lofty goals for yourself and come up with a plan for making progress toward them. And before you know it, you’ll be up in the air, soaring ever higher!

 

And if you want an accountability buddy, I’m IN! Send me your 2024 goals and I’ll check in with you quarterly to check on your progress (and keep you motivated)! It’s time to reach new heights and achieve YOUR GOALS – not someone else’s!! 

 

Here’s to a FABULOUS 2024 for us ALL!!!
