Don’t let the new year sneak up on you. Now is the perfect time to follow these 5 ways to start the year off taking charge of what you are getting out of life and your future ahead.
#1 Do a yearly overview
Look back on 2019 What a year I am sure you had! To get a snapshot of the year answer these questions. :
What went well for me this year? What accomplishments did I achieve? How did I improve my life? How did I improve my relationships? What did I remove from my life that is now making me happier? What do I wish I had taken more time for?
Keep track of these questions and your responses in a journal that you can refer to in the future: your answers year over year will be very enlightening and will make things more transparent.
Ask these types of questions about all the essential areas of your life, such as family, relationships, financial, career, home, etc.
questions will help you appreciate all you’ve accomplished in 2019, and you can use this information to start 2020 off right and set better goals for the new year.
#2 Finish what you started
Which projects, errands, and general list of to-do items do you have left over in 2019, that you can complete in 2 hours or less? Do them RIGHT Now to clear your mind of the old things, so you can start the year off fresh,cross them off the list.
#3 Be realistic, Set Realistic Goals
Dreaming is fabulous and highly recommended, but if you want to accomplish some improvements in your life, you need to be realistic. As much as you may want something, it’s very likely you don’t really believe you can have it. (If you did you would already have achieved it.) We must turn a dream into something we can picture accomplishing before it can become a reality.
Take your dream and start breaking it down into milestone goals (short-term goals): if you want to work from home, what are the steps you need to take? Break the goals down further so you can create a game-plan and start working towards accomplishing that dream.
#4 Focus on what you really want
Speaking of dreaming, ask yourself what your dream looks like. What are you doing in the idea? How are you living? Who is in the dream with you? What does a typical day entail? Get specific about what you really want down to the nitty-gritty details.
These questions will help you define what you really want, and give ideas on how you can achieve them. For example, if you think that what you want is more money, keep digging at that response. What would you do if you had endless amounts of money? Would you travel, volunteer, or live simply and quietly away from it all?
After your have this clear in your mind find pictures that represent these thoughts and make a vision board of your year ahead. We often think that money is an end goal, when really, we are just stuck in a rut, and we believe we can’t do or have what we really want unless we have more money. Challenge that idea and dig to find those things that you really want, and aim to pursue them now.
#5 Put yourself at the top of the list
Using the information, you gained above by determining what you want, put yourself at the top of the list make yourself your priority this year. We really can’t help others until we help ourselves.
Take care of yourself, put yourself first, strive to reach your goals that will make you a better person.
