What we learned in 2020.

Hello Everyone,

Dr. Regina Banks-Hall

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to a moment of motivation with Dr. Regina Banks-Hall.   As we close out 2020, I wanted to spend time, like so many others, recapping the year.   We rolled into the year, with hopes, dreams, and visions.   Two months later, the world would change based on a global pandemic, that has taken the lives of many.  

We went from eating inside restaurants to picking up our food curbside.  We saw movie theaters and concert venues close their doors. We saw the rise in social justice, where many took to the streets to fight for the equality of those disenfranchised.  Small business owners suffered the worst, unable to secure enough funding for their businesses.   However, I believe these business owners will return with new and improved models.   They will have to go back to the drawing board and rethink their plans, but they will chart a new path. 

Therefore, as we close out the year, I want to focus on some of the things we learned in 2020, that we can take with us into 2021.   We learned that we are resilient, we are compassionate, we are survivors, we appreciate life, and we could pivot, as it relates to family and business.    Think about it, we sheltered in placed, we wore masks, vinyl gloves, and learned how to make our own hand sanitizer.   We managed remote learning and found new ways to use Zoom and WebEx for meetings.  Some of us, started businesses during the pandemic, went back to school, started new podcasts, and released new music.  For me, I released a new book.  Finally, some of us discovered talents and skills, that we never knew we had. 

As you enter 2021, I encourage you to identify what you learned in 2020.  Use this information to set new goals, start your business, write that new book, start your podcast, prepare a vision for your family, learn about the stock market, change your career, but most of all, go for it.  None of us know how much time we have, therefore, do not squander what time is left.  We must live life to the fullest, practice social safety habits while we recover, and chase our dreams.  Remember, you are only as good as what you have learned.

You have been listening to a moment of motivation with Dr. Regina Banks-Hall, I wish all of you health, prosperity, and success in the new year.    Let’s use what we have learned.

2017 What I learned, and What I will do in 2018.

Well, we are almost at the end of 2017, and this chapter in our lives will end.   I was talking to a friend of mine today, and we were talking about possibilities, opportunities, and lessons learned.   We each made a list of what we learned from this year.   We determined that respect, determination, and hard work were the keys for our survival.  Overall, it was a good year.

As you see this year come to a close, focus on what you learned and be thankful you are here to provide your own evaluation.   As you celebrate the coming new year, think about the opportunities and possibilities for 2018.   What do you want to accomplish? What are your dreams?  Take a moment and reply.  Let me know what some of your goals are for 2018.   Some of my goals are to release two new books, grow my coaching business, and take piano lessons (they say you are never too old to learn).

Reply in the comment section, and let me know what some of your goals are, and let’s make this a great year for us all.

New Year, New Opportunities, New Possibilities, New YOU!!!!!!!!
