I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I heard some of you are still enjoying their 3-day weekend… We can all use that, right!?
I know it’s 3 weeks into 2017 already, but it’s never too late (or too early) to share tips or words on how to have a happy and successful year. By the way how are you doing with your new year’s resolutions? Whatever they are, I hope they’re working out for you. Often, we all need a little bit of inspiration here and there and today, I feel that I should share with you these 6 things that I believe, if you follow will help you achieve your goals this year.
1– Meditate and Pray – Daily meditations and prayers are a life-changer.
2- Set realistic goals – New year resolutions are quite frankly becoming “old things”. Why? Well, because, for whatever reasons, they’re hard to stick to. “The new year, new me” phrase has gotten so much cliche, but I believe that as long as you set realistic and measurable goals, you should be able to work towards them and make things happen.
3- Choose a word of the year. – If you don’t know, this is being the new “it” thing most “goal diggers” are leaning towards these days. As mentioned earlier, new year’s resolutions can be complex things to do. Not that people can’t and don’t stick to them. If you do, kuddos to you, but choosing a word for the year gives you more chance to be focused on that very word which, in many ways, will ultimately help in being focused in achieving your goal. – I will go into more details in another post coming soon on this subject, and I will also tell you what my word for 2017 is.
4- Be consistent. – Consistency is key in every thing we do. You can’t achieve anything if you are not consistent in what needs to be done to get there. This is something dear and near to my heart that I’m working on everyday. Being consistent with the little things as reading my devotional everyday for example or being consistent with my blog, is critical for me to get to where I want to get. When you want great results, you’ve got to keep doing what needs to be done – I’ve read quite a few times that content is king, but consistency is queen.
5- Get inspired. – It’s a great thing to look for inspirations in others, but learn to remain true to yourself. Trying to be someone you’re not and copying their little moves will not do you any good. You can find inspiration in people, books, social media, TV shows, arts, almost everywhere, but make it your own. Authenticity is a quality that is not only easily recognized and applauded, but it will take you a long way.
6- Have faith and believe in yourself! – Have faith in God or whatever higher power you believe in and believe that you can do great things. If you don’t believe in yourself, (no one else will) you can’t accomplish anything! An undeniable key to success is believing in one self. Not everyone is talented and smart (Sorry but it’s the truth), but anyone that believe in their ability to work hard, practice, and make things happen and succeed, in fact, will succeed even when they’re not talented! – BELIEVE TO ACHIEVE!
Bonus. – Read more, learn a lot, do more of what you love, travel when you can, have meaningful conversations. Life is too short and precious to be wasted on things that take you nowhere. This year try to invest your time in doing things that will help you be the best version of yourself. – (See more about reading here!)
This is the perfect time of the year to make necessary changes in your life. March into your blessings and abundance!
Love & Light!
