We’re a month to the end of the year and this is the time when we usually have “sober reflections”. We look back on the year and at our goals we wrote at the beginning of the year and for some of us, it’s a sad experience. The year may have not gone the way we hoped or planned.
Some of us lost loved ones. Some of us lost good friendships, some lost good relationships. Some lost opportunities. Some didn’t hit their goal weight or size. (I’m still struggling… to get back to size 10…shhh don’t tell anyone)
We expected to be happier, richer, more successful, more handsome or beautiful, travel on that vacations, get business deals, start that career or even get married. Looking back, we can’t see what we hoped to achieve and it hurts.
You begin to wonder if it’s even worth it setting goals and expecting things to change when year after year, it all remains the same. We blame our partners, family, background, the economy, the government, God, etc
We blame everyone and worse off ourselves.
The truth is, you alone have the power to design the life you want. You alone have the power to determine your future. Whatever you are now is a result of your past decisions. Whatever you WILL become is a result of the decisions you make today.
My advice to you and to my self: Don’t make the same decisions you made at the beginning of the year that got you nowhere. Learn how to set actionable and achievable goals and develop the discipline to go through with them. Remember that those who fail to plan, plan to fail.
2018 is upon us..lets crush it TOGETHER!!! 💪💪💪
