I know it’s a bit late for this but it’s still the first week of January. I want to begin this year with an inspirational post for all my wonderful readers.
Did you make a New Year’s resolution? Or maybe even goals? Share them in the comments space below so I can encourage you!
There are several things I learned last year which I would like to share with all of you.
First, focus on quality over quantity. In today’s fast-paced, multitasking world we can easily get caught up in staying busy and forget to scale down our daily activities in order to give more time to each task. Minimalism is chic so par down your to-do list, clean your house and toss out what you don’t need. Less is more.
Second, take risks. Take a leap out of your comfort zone to start experiencing new things. We are often more regretful of what we didn’t do than what we did do. This doesn’t mean being reckless, it means giving yourself opportunities to leverage your talent and potential even if the odds seem uncertain.
Third, speak up for yourself and do what’s right for you. Learn to say no when you need to. Honor your values and priorities in everything you do.
Fourth, keep the big picture in mind. Think big, don’t let trivial things distract you from your dreams and ideals.
Fifth, celebrate your successes, no matter what size they are. This will help keep you motivated and positive.
