You’ve been deliberate in your thoughts, prayers and meditations about what you’ll do differently this year to improve the quality of your personal and professional life. You are energized and excited about the future and how you'll feel at the end of 2023 when you can report that you've successfully achieved your goals.
But first I want encourage you to make this the year you lead yourself first. Make it the year you lead yourself first into the successes that you've lined up by raising your vibration. A vibration ("vibe") is a state of being, the atmosphere, or the energetic quality of a person, place, thought, or thing. (chopra.com).
Have you ever been in a room when a person walked in and you just had "a good feeling" about them? They brought their good, high vibes into the room and you were ready to receive them. They're likely a person who knows the importance of leading themselves first, so they can bring out the best in others.
Leaders who want to bring out the best in others, prioritize entering every room with good, high vibes. They attract others who are ready to cooperate, collaborate and co-create with them. Everyone in the room won’t be ready, but those who are will move you one step closer to your goals in ways you may not have imagined, and you will likely do the same for them.
What raises your vibe?
Do you know what raises your vibe? For me, it’s this picture. It makes me smile inside and out when I look at it. I can’t really explain why, but it does, so I keep it close. It’s also Jill Scott’s song, Golden. Check it out here if you’re not familiar.
Find that picture, song, show, poem, good memory; hug your pet, dance, sing, pray, meditate, or do whatever it takes to lead yourself into feeling good, regardless of where you stand in a moment. Caring about your vibe is a great first step to increasing self-awareness and achieving your goals and dreams more successfully.
As you carryout your goals for the year:
Set your intention to raise your vibration before you enter the room.
Set your intention to raise your vibration before handling difficult conversations.
Set your intention to raise your vibration, just because you want to feel good as often as you can.

At the end of 2023, I see you telling the story of how you nourished your mindset, vibrated high as often as you could, and nailed your goals. I see you telling the story of how you reached new heights by being intentional and consistent in honoring what you said you would do to yourself, by taking steps to lead yourself first.
