The old, the new and the inbetween

New year has always puzzled me. What is new year? When does it start and when does it end? Is it just that moment when we reflect on what we achieved so we can reevaluate and start again trying to achieve the goals we have set for ourselves?
Can we just step from the old into the new overnight? Or is new year just the summon of our attempts to grow through life’s’ transition stages?

Celebrating new year is a joyful moment where we make time to reflect on what we have been doing and make plans for the coming year.  We start the next round, the next phase, we get ready for the new challenges or we once again tackle old challenges. The rest of the coming year we will have our goals to work through.

In my head it looks something like this:


On paper it all seems so easy and logical while in reality it can be quite messy. In reality it looks more like this:
It is not so much your starting point nor reaching the end goal that matters most, it is that bit in between! That is exactly where the magic happens.

Making the most out of the  ‘in between’  will make you grow, increase your consciousness,  build up your resilience, expand powerfully and transform across all levels.

How you deal with that space in between and how you use this adventure to nurture you, will make the difference.

It can learn you how to absorb life’s ups and downs, heal yourself, integrate everything that happens on a deeper, more profound level.

In the end overcoming the difficulties on your path will give you gifts you can treasure for the rest of your life. These gifts are called experiences!

Making a clear roadplan to achieve your goals will increase the likelyhood of obtaining your goals.

Beeing clear and realistic about what your goals are, will keep your focus. One powerful tool to do just that is the outcome model.
