It is the beginning of the new year; we are still energized and filled with hope to make 2019 the best year ever. We see all these endless possibilities which we want to grab. I am right there with you.
After reflecting on all the aspects of my life that I can improve, I see myself in a much better place at the end of the year. In order to make it happen, I have to take some actions and stick to them. Some of us have already lost our eagerness and motivation to achieve our new year’s resolutions. Some of those resolutions were not deep enough to keep. Often, we do not assess our ability and we set goals that we are unable to fulfill.
Any great dream is accomplished with determination, perseverance, and hard work. It’s time, to be honest with myself and see what goal I truly want to achieve and which one is simply a wish. Now, I am certain of what I want for this year. I set up a plan with 12 short term goals and the ultimate goal to be exactly where I want to be. I know that I might have some tough days where I might be discouraged. I might fall or deviate a little bit but I will not give up. I have my backup plan and constantly focussing at the big picture will keep me motivated.
As we are about to start the third week of January, besides having great resolutions, I hope we all have a plan to make them happen. I hope we are determined to overcome any step back. Remember this quote of Pablo Picasso: “Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success”.
Let’s be determined and make a commitment to ourselves to stick to any plan, adventure, or goal we have planned for 2019.
