6 Things to do for a successful 2019


Happy Monday beauties,

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, affirmations, and prayers are a life-changer, whether you believe in God, the universe, or the source.

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. – Read the post “Goals vs Commitments” HERE for more insights on the subject.

3- Choose A Word Of The Year.

If you don’t know, this is being the new “it” thing most “goals 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. It’s statistically proven that less than 22% of ‘new-year-resolutioners’ actually keep up with and meet their goals! If you do, Bravo! More power to you and keep up with the great work! However, 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 staying focused in achieving your goals. – Need more insights on this subject?

4- Be consistent

Consistency is key in everything 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 be. When you want great results, you’ve got to keep doing what needs to be done – Like they say, content is king, but consistency is queen !

5- Get inspired.

It’s a great and smart thing to look for inspiration in others, but learn to remain true to yourself. Trying to be someone you’re not and copying their every little moves will not do you any good. The only thing it would is keep you from being or becoming who you’re truly destined to be.
You can find inspiration in people, books, social media, TV shows, art… pretty much almost everywhere as long you keep your eyes and mind open for those bits and pieces, but make it your own. Add that touch of YOU! 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 and) you can’t accomplish anything! An undeniable key to success is believing in one self.

Not everyone is highly talented and too 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!


Read more, learn new things, do more of what you love, travel when you can, have meaningful conversations. Life is too short and too 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! )

Thank you for reading and make it a great week.

Love & Light,

    Hello Edwige,

    Thank you for the inspiration. I love your tip on setting realistic goals. This is something I have to keep in mind. I’m the type who goes to the salon thinking that I’ll come out of it fully transformed and unrecognizable. So, I have a tendency to setting unrealistic goals.

    I wish you a great start of 2019!
