This is the last lesson in the 52 weeks course of “The Best Year of Your Life” and I want to thank everyone who shared the lessons with me.   I hoped they served to be useful, encouraging and guided you in areas you might have been needing guidance on.  For me personally, they have been timely messages I needed to hear and others served as reminders for things I had forgotten as life happens.

The last lesson deals with going back to the basics and for me sometimes it’s a reminder to honor that inner child in me.

Lesson 52: Go Back to the Basics

From the author Debbie Ford…

I trained in martial arts for three years, and one thing I was continually struck by is how much time we spent in each class focusing on the basics. “Without mastering the basics,” my instructor would say, “you can never move on to more advanced techniques.”

How do you create the best year of your life? Pay attention to the basics. Have compassion for yourself. Take time to go within. Set measurable goals. Do what you say you’re going to do. Appreciate what you have.

Take this week to focus on the basics. Strive to make each of these practices a regular part of your lifestyle, and the best year of your life will unfold naturally.

Your Self-Love Assignment

It’s time for a refresher course on the skills you’ve learned so far during this course. Look back over the past few weeks and note the following:

  • Are you compassionate with yourself, even when you make mistakes?
  • Have you broken agreements with yourself or others that you need to clean up?
  • Have you set goals or committed to action steps that you haven’t fulfilled?
  • Are you nourishing your physical body with proper food, rest, and exercise?
  • Are you taking time each day to go within?

Make a list of any of the basic skills you’ve been neglecting. Then create a plan of action to reintroduce them back into your daily schedule.

Give yourself 100 points for each basic skill you reintroduce into your daily routine.
