Sooooo it’s February already! HOWWW?? I know everyone said January felt like a year but for me it felt more like I experienced a year of living in a month. It went by pretty fast I feel like, just a lot has happened!
Anyway, long story short I was pretty late to the game making my goals for this year. I didn’t want to rush and write down meaningless words before midnight just for the hell of it. I wanted it to be real, to have a plan and figure out a way to stick to it. Pretty much every year my goals are a flop. I start and give up easy, get motivated on and off and most of the time can’t push through either the lack of creativity or my insecurities (that’s real yo). Something I’m learning is that just because I’m insecure in certain areas doesn’t mean I have to stop improving in them. But like most of us, I let my thoughts take control of me 9 times out of 10. So instead of writing a list of goals on a piece of paper that I was going to throw away the next morning, I took an hour to sit and really think about what I wanted out of this year. Mentally, physically, spiritually, and relationally.
I wrote down probably 15 things and from there I wrote out ideas on how to get there. And if there was something I didn’t know how to do myself I wrote “research _____” or something like that to remind me that I needed a little more info until I made a set plan. From there I texted my boyfriend, my mom, and my sister and asked them to keep me accountable for certain goals. To call me out when I’m being lazy or when I let my insecurities get the best of me. It’s good to have people around you who can help pick you up when you can’t pick up yourself. This is the first year I’ve asked people to keep me accountable for my goals, and I think that’s one of the main reasons I haven't accomplished goals in the past. We can’t do it alone. We need people and a plan to get to where we want to be.
Write down your goals
Make a plan on how to accomplish those goals
Bring trustworthy people into the process that want you to succeed as well and can help keep you accountable
You can’t go wrong with those steps. From there all it takes is you choosing every single day to be better. Every single day choosing to push through anything that could stand in your way.
All of that to say, I’m crazy motivated for this year. Can you imagine getting to the end of 2019 and actually accomplishing the words you wrote down on a piece of paper? A year ago they were just words! But now you’re here and you made it. That’s the feeling I’m fighting for this year. To get to the end and be proud of everything I accomplished. That I did nothing but my best either way. January was a trial month people. This is where we grind. Cheers to the hustle, the struggles, the laughs, and to you. For crushing this year in every way. Lets do this ;)
