For many years, I look at the sunrise and sunset every day. This “hobby” of mine is probably one of the most interminable ongoing “dialogues” of my life. Every morning and every evening, something remarkable happens. Unfortunately, many of us are too busy to notice.

In this phenomenon, change occurs in a very discrete pace, consistently and steadily. You either gain or lose, depending on where you are, around 2 minutes of light, every day. The December solstice (1) marks the longest night and shortest day of the year. Meanwhile, the Southern Hemisphere has its longest day and shortest night.

The sun reaches the lowest point in the Northern Hemisphere

Despite anything you will read on the news today, our planet will continue to move, gaining momentum in a perpetual movement, cycle after cycle, and year after year. One minute in the morning and one minute in the evening, consistently and steadily, until it reaches a tipping point (2).

Stop for a moment and think about yourself!

Where are you heading with your life at the end of 2019? Are you closing a cycle? Are you opening a new one? Are you moving at all? What are you doing every day to reach the tipping point on the objectives you want to achieve?

Once you enter such flow, you always move, and you always move forward. Your “personal solstice” begins to take shape every moment you dare to connect the dots between who you are today and who you want to be in the future, and then walk.

What can you do to bring your life closer to your purpose?

Dedicate a few minutes a day free of distractions to look into your future. Maybe looking into the sunrise or the sunset. Picture yourself moving towards your goals, little by little, every day. Be there for yourself, fully present!

Like any skill, you will get better at this over time. Make sure you feel, smell, taste, see, and hear everything in your mind. Make it as real as possible, and your brain will start interpreting your visualizations as a possibility. Consistently and steadily.

Don’t forget, the end is always the beginning of something new, and 2020 is just around the corner. If you need the right environment to take the first step forward, look into the Walking Mentorship programs (3) and let’s walk together towards the best version of ourselves.

Have a wonderful solstice,

(1) The 2019 December solstice takes place on Friday, Dec 22, 04:19.

(2) The point at which a series of small changes or incidents becomes significant enough to cause a larger, more important change.

(3) If you join until the 31st of December, you can save some good money, book a call to take advantage of early-bird fares. Don’t forget that you can make this investment up to four installments.
