It’s the first month of the new year and that means there’s no better time to set yourself up for what could be the best year of your life. Whether 2018 was a great year for you or not so much, it’s done with now and it’s time to move on. The first month of the year is a time for planning, goal setting and riding the momentum of the coming year. It’s time to go after what you want and make 2019 your best year yet!
You know that thing you said you were going to do in 2018? Maybe it was joining a new group, getting fit or finally taking the leap and starting that new business. You began last year with all intentions of making it happen and then suddenly the year got away on you. It might have been fear holding you back – fear of judgement, fear of failing – but it’s time to put that aside now. You’re never going to get to where you want to be if you’re constantly doubting yourself and letting your fear win!
Now is the time to let go of any mistakes or regrets from the previous year – dwelling on the past gets you nowhere. Allow yourself to have this fresh start. Write down your goals, create a mood board, visualize your plans and make them happen. No goal is too small or too big.
Set realistic expectations but also don’t be afraid to shoot for the stars! The most important thing is that you believe in yourself and believe in your vision. After all, you are the only on that can truly make your goals become a reality. Don’t compare your journey to anyone else’s and realise that there’s no need to prove anything to anyone. Embrace each challenge and work hard every single day, but don’t be afraid to fail. More than once.
So, whatever it is that you’ve been putting it off or whatever it is that you’ve been working towards, 2019 is the year to go for it. It’s time to push through the barriers, stop the self-doubt and just dive in headfirst. This year is the year to finally make it happen.
