Today I am sharing some DARK SECRETS & LEARNINGS which I have learned after becoming Coach/ Solo Entrepreneur in this lockdown. How I became who I am today who has no background of business or in general anything I do. My life has taken 270 degrees turn, and I threw me in so many situations which no one would like to be in if you love settlement in life. BTW 90 degree of my life is still same because I am home. Anyway! here I present you how to end the year right and set up for the successful year.
There's no doubt that 2020 has been a rollercoaster ride for each one of us as we all went through a lot. But, Hey! at the same time, you should feel Blessed. Why? Because you are brave enough to continue your fight with this pandemic, so embrace the breath you just took.
Along with this hey-wired year, we all are eagerly waiting for 2021. Right? So that we can reboot our life system and kick-start the year.
However, I have never been a person who creates a bucket list of resolutions for the new year as on delays it drops your motivation and task stays on the pending list forever.
Instead of waiting for the right time, understand that every single day is a gift given to you for a purpose, so value your 24 hours.
You must be wondering what needs to be done to say goodbye and end the year with a lighter heart! Let us make it happen and follow a process to end the year more intentionally together. Come on in!
Take a deep breath.
What Worked For You This Year
I know it's a bit difficult in this uncertain situation to focus on what's gone right over negative thoughts. But with a little courage, let's outline big and small things that went favourable with you.
Like any increment, a new phone or started something of your own it can be anything that is a milestone for you.
Victories are not always something big but, they also lie on tiny beautiful things that went right for you like reading five books, 15 min meditation practise daily, making some new good habit by quitting some bad.
For now, close your eyes and remind, and end the year by praising all good that happened to you.

What's Still In The Pending List:
I know a lot of us feel anxious while looking at the incomplete things. But relax you still have a lot of 24 hours which can give you again a chance to finish all those tasks. But this time utilize every moment because I know you'll be feeling on top of the world on completing them and that achievement will provide you with more confidence to do more in future.
Write 5 things down in your journal!
Things You're Running From:
Let's be honest to ourselves, by recalling all the excuses that we are making from so many days. Okay, let me share mine so when I am releasing my new course then within a few hours from launch I start calculating the stats and become anxious which gives me performance pressure and I lose my patience which affects me a lot. However, a day later, when seats get to pack, I feel relieved.
By doing this, I let the situation affect my mental peace which is very wrong. So to overcome this, I recently started doing the guided meditation, breathing practice and learning mindfulness that helps me a lot to stay relaxed and build patience.
What are those situations when you feel panic? It's not too late to end the year doing something for self-growth.
What Is Stopping You?
Have you ever felt like you really want to do this but, you are running out of time, or lacking with the resources, or not having money to start. But you know what, we always have a substitute available, all you need to adjust at first and then have a blast start. For example, I wanted to start blogging but lacked time, and then I decided to take out my spare time on the weekend.
Second, during this lockdown my body was becoming a bit lazy as I wasn't doing the workout, the point is you don't need a gym, instead start practising yoga and stretching at home which is helping my body to warm up.
Third, I wanted some professional images for my blogs, social media, and website but I am not having any DSLR with me, so I learned some angle technique which lets me click good pictures from my phone camera.
See I found my substitute, hope you also look for solutions and get rid of excuses.
Major Decisions You Made This Year:
It's time to pat on your back and feel proud of your decisions and work hard to make them right, this will help you end the year with boosting the self-confidence. Recall all those time when no one believed in you, and you believed in yourself, to make things happen. Be brave enough to trust on your potential!
New Skills You Built:
Every year we learn new things, try new ideas, and build some routine. Hopefully this year especially in lockdown, you learned something productive, playing a musical instrument, writing the blog, painting, designing your living area creatively, driving a car or something apart from these also.
List all new things you learned to check out how much you explored.
What Your Dreams Look Like Now?
We all have our dreams which we manifest daily, that gives us pleasure and ignition to make them happen one day.
You have to dream before your dreams can come true.
– Sir APJ Abdul Kalam
Acknowledge all things that you antasize, any dream car, a stage where you want to perform, launching a book, receiving an award, achieving wanderlust and become a nomad or XYZ.
Once you build your dreams, find a path which will lead you to that destination. Try this meditation practice to manifest your dreams and attract them.
Commit Small Tasks For The Sake Of Joy:
Small steps every day, how easy it is if you commit doing just ONE thing completely, every single day until the year ends?
It might be 5 mins meditating, or journaling or having dinner with your family every day. It should be something for the sake of joy (not fitness, not productivity, not learning, not responsibilities, only for you to end the year purposely.)
So, how do you want to say goodbye to 2020? What you want to do before it ends? Are you making the rest of 2020 more uplifting with these mini practices, shifts and acknowledgements? I am ready for it, are you? I have a gut feeling that we all will end the year with a nice enclosure for heading into the fresh new year ahead.
