The great thing about a new year, is that you get to start afresh and do it all over again, building on the lessons of the past.

I’ve spent the last few days untangling my 2017, asking myself the big questions:
  • What did I do?
  • What did I learn?
  • What would I do differently if I played the year again
2017, for me, has been a huge year of change and transition, packed with activity, learning and growth. Not everything went quite to plan, but some of the highlights include:
  • Living in Sydney all year and now see the world from an Australian lense
  • Working 100% in the healthy food & nutrition sector, living my dharma
  • Meeting a whole range of different and very interesting people in person and via Skype
  • Travelling to every Australian state – including an outstanding trip to Uluru (Ayres Rock) in the red centre
  • Travelling to London twice – both pretty intense experiences
  • Working with some amazing mentors who have guided me, pushed me and taught me so much
  • Attending some fantastic mind-expanding events
  • Reading a number of inspiring books
  • Moving house to a new part of Sydney
Everything wasn’t all fun, fun, fun – I had to look into the ‘Mirror of Truth’ quite a few times, but overall, as I close the 2017 chapter, it has been a good year,… with a number of less good things sprinkled in…
My point. A year goes very quickly but so much happens. So many activities, so many events, so many experiences. It’s so easy to be busy, busy, busy and not have time to reflect, to step back, and ask yourself those big questions:
  • What’s really important to me?
  • Am I doing the work that I really want to do?
  • Am I happy and growing as a human being?
  • Am I having fun and enjoying my precious time on this earth?
At Raw Energy, our mission, our passion and our purpose is to make the world a healthier place and unblock the energy that exists in all of us. The physical, the mental, the emotional, the time and the connections energy which make up the RAW Energy framework. We can’t do that alone though. We need to work with mentors and communities to guide us and hold us accountable and unblock the collective energy so that we can achieve way more than we ever thought possible.

Have a wonderful 2018, and as a little gift from me to you, please download a copy of My Better Life workbook which will help you ask the big questions and go deep to get the answers.
