A letter - nay, a call to adventure - addressed to you. Yes, you.
Set sail for a great year ahead by reflecting on what can help you unlock greater health and happiness.
Welcome to BestMe
You can make incredible changes to your life over the next year
As 2016 comes to a close, this is a great time to reflect on the year that's passed and to look forward to what's ahead in 2017, which is only a few days away.
A powerful way to jump-start the year ahead is to prioritize a few ways that you can be even happier, healthier and more fulfilled in 2017.
And therein lays the spirit of being your BestMe: embracing the power of possibility. To dare to do a little bit more, to dare to be great, even. And to realize that you can make incredible changes to your life through tiny tweaks that create big impact.
Jump start your year by taking a moment to reflect
Whether you're reading this on New Year's Eve or any other time of the year, know that you are at a moment of great possibility. Because no matter where you are in your life, you have an opportunity to reach out for greater joy, fulfillment and achievement in your life.
So we encourage you to ask yourself, with an open mind and a light heart (hold the stress, please!), a few questions to help you make some powerful tweaks to your life:
What would I like to achieve in the year ahead? Personally, professionally, socially?
What things are holding me back most from greater happiness?
What repeatable behaviors can I focus on as habits?
What sources of motivation can I use as my "why" to keep me going?
What approach can I take to help me achieve my goals more easily?
Want an even easier approach?
What about me?
For me, in 2017 I am focusing on two key goals:
Really get my morning routine (gratitude, glass of water, stretching, fitness, meditation) to be a habit.
Help 100,000 people with their best self goals.
These are big goals, but I know they are possible if I stay focused and continue to come back to my motivation, which is that life is short, we tend to settle for less health and happiness than what is very much within our reach, and that we can get there by embracing a mindset of growth and helping each other along the way.
Having faced tough times myself over the years, including depression, social anxiety, challenges with my weight and emotional eating, bouts of procrastination, and high stress in my work life, it has been the ability to look inside of myself, and to reach out for the help of others, that has helped me get this far. And I couldn't be more excited to be dedicating myself to the path of continued personal and collective growth.
Following that mission, the BestMe team and I want to help you make the changes you know will help you unlock greater happiness in your life - faster, smarter and easier.
You are right where you need to be
No matter where you are in your journey, know that you are right where you need to be, and that you have a great year ahead of you.
If you'd like to share about where you are or your goals (big or small!), I'd love to hear from you and am here to chat with anyone that would like some support. Just reach out any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And tomorrow we'll be following up with a quiz to help you structure this even more.
With lots of love!
Chris and the BestMe team
