Monthly Archives: September 2018

Hi there. I’m Julie Abel, and I’m the host of the Courageous Leader show. This is a video show where leaders can come learn about how to get clarity in their careers and their lives in order to expand their vision and create the extraordinary life they desire. Today’s topic is about starting over.

About a week ago, I found myself in a position that many leaders find themselves in. You’ve gotten behind. You’ve just been really crazy busy, and you’re staring at a pile of work, and it doesn’t seem like there’s any hope in sight. What I did is I wrote myself a permission slip to basically start over at that minute and that day. So, this says, “For Julie,” the date was September 4th, and I gave myself permission to start over. It really changed my whole attitude. It allowed me to open up the space and figure out what was most important and reprioritize what was happening with my work, and it really allowed me to let go of the feeling of being behind and the frustration and allowed for the openness of starting over.

Where in your life do you think would be a great place to start over? Could it be your email? Could it be taking your entire email box, archiving it, and starting over? You still have all of the old emails, but it allows you the opportunity to start over. Do you need to start over on a specific project? Do you need to start over maybe with your fitness or your exercise? What I’d like for you to do today is find one area that would feel so refreshing to start over in and literally write yourself a permission slip. Write permission at the top of it, write your name and the date, and give yourself permission to start over. I hope you liked the topic today.

Until next time, I’m Julie Abel the founder of the Courageous Leader show, and I’m encouraging you to take your leadership to the next level and go out and make a difference in the world.
