In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I shared my goals and achievements this year and how I am hopeful for a great 2022. I also shared some things that I’m looking forward to in the year and what you should expect from me in the coming year.

Key Takeaways

  • Don’t compare what you did last year and what you achieved this year.
  • Create a manifestation list so that you can go outside of your everyday thoughts of what you want.
  • If you have big goals, ensure that you can continue to feel some progress.
  • Take into consideration having smaller goals while trying to achieve bigger goals.


“What’s really going on, yes, not the sexy thing to do, it’s not the most exciting, but I’m still leveling up.” – Emily [4:48]

“We don’t always have to go from one extreme to the other, and it is fine to just exist in that in-between. Maybe you’ve had a great, but it’s just an average year. You don’t have to wait until you’re at your lowest until you’re going to make your big change.” – Emily [7:08]
