Happy New Year!
I’m still coming to terms with the fact that it is 2018. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I had plans and dreams for 2017, some happened and some didn’t. So, I’m coming into 2018 with old and new dreams, and that brings with it a whirlwind of mixed emotions. I shared a video on Instagram that was very personal and it was literally a conversation I was having with myself that night. It’s the 3rd day of the year and I’m sitting in my new apartment filled with cartons, and littered with my things that are nowhere close to arranged and asking myself “how can I achieve the impossible this year?”
Step One. Dream Again
It’s tempting to give up in the face of disappointments or just resign to fate. I know I have wanted to try just living without expecting anything with the hope of having fewer disappointments. Truth is, it’s not worth it. Dreams make us alive. It gives us something to aspire to or be hopeful for. It helps us stay motivated and we all need that in our daily lives. The first step to breaking impossible grounds is to dream it. Dream big! Dreams are slaps in the face of failure. So, go ahead and give those slaps.
Step Two. Believe Your Dreams
Have you ever imagined yourself doing something mind blowing and you snapped out of it and tagged it ‘impossible’? That is one of the biggest mistakes we make. One of my favorite sayings is “If your dream doesn’t scare you, it’s not big enough”. After you have those dreams for yourself and your future, believe they are possible and in your abilities to achieve them. You won’t believe how energized and motivated you will be to start chasing those dreams.
Step Three. Create A Plan
You dream is guaranteed to fade away and turn into complete nothing if you don’t have a plan. Your plans consist of steps you want to take to help you achieve goals that are tied to your dreams. You could have them on a vision board in your room, phone, diary, or anything at all. Plans keep you focused and helps you maximize every day and opportunity that comes your way. The best way to ensure your dreams don’t waste this year is to plan out steps to achieve them.
Step Four. Work Hard
Your big dreams are not going to make themselves happen. A beautiful plan on your wall isn’t either. Having faith and believing from now till the end of the year is futile without the actual work you need to do. In this new year, roll up your sleeves and WORK HARD.
I’m going on this same journey with you. I believe in you! Let’s rock this year!
Make It A Winning Year
