Hello everyone, it’s a new month the and I almost can’t believe that the whole of January is gone already!
January was so fast at first and it just slowed down… I am kinda of happy January is over although I wasn’t able to do as much I hoped I would but I understand that instead of crying over spilled milk, I can choose instead to look forward to making the future better.
Sometimes, our biggest problems lie in choosing to remain in a pool of regret or sadness over the things that didn’t work out. There is no need to do that.
The best thing to do is to acknowledge that it didn’t work the way we wanted it to and then ask the question, Why? Why didn’t it work out? What were the factors responsible? What could I have done differently?
It is important that we think and evaluate and decided to.move our lives forward deliberately.
Also, please don’t shut down for the entire year because January didn’t work out the way that you desired it would. Please do not.
Sometimes seeing the achievement of the people around us can put us under pressure to want to start doing also and can make us feel pretty bad ourselves.
We shouldn’t be under pressure or get depressed because of the achievements of other people rather we should allow it to encourage us. To show that if that person can do it, it means I can also.
There is a flip side to that too, everyone is gifted different and called to different things. Our talents and our abilities differ and are in different stages.This means you can’t necessarily do what the other person can do.
Own where you are and who you are and don’t try to do what the other person is doing. Find, recognise, acknowledge and celebrate your giftings. When you recognise what it is, start working on it and improving that gift or skill.
Another thing is although there was a lot of talk about goal setting, we didn’t actually get around to writing our goals down or we were just too haphazard about it. February is a good time to write those goals down.
February is the new January, your new year can start at any time. It really starts when you decide its new!
Don’t just run your life on autopilot and just live it as it comes. You have to be deliberate. Be deliberate about your friendships and associations. Get deliberate about your plans. Most especially get deliberate about your growth.
Sometimes we don’t even know which goals to set or what we want specifically! I’d just suggest plan to grow! Get a growth plan.
Growth is the key to success. Decide that you aren’t going to be the same person that you were when February began. This month please read books, attend webinars, conferences, coonect with new people, read up about the areas of your passion on the internet.
I have got great news, my new book drops this month! Its called The Do it Afraid Book. It is a guide to starting out on your dream even though you might be doubting, scared or second-guessing yourself.
Cheers to a new month! Let’s do epic things this month!
