Welcome to 2020 , Happy new year to all my friends and blog visitors , so glad to have this platform and have you all here with me in this new decade , can’t wait to begin unfolding all that is in stall for you guys.
So as soon as the new year starts , we all start counting our gains and losses and then there is this pressure we get from seeing people on social media display all of their seemingly perfect year and gains that we feel lost or unaccomplished , wait, please , step on the brakes , never judge your life or progress through other people’s eyes.
New year resolutions are so popular which begs me to ask do they work? And How do you ensure that the new year is productive for you and helps you hit your life goals ?
Personally I have discovered that these resolutions and Vision board are born out of pressure and the euphoria of entering a new year , which is why as soon as the year takes shape , economy hits hard , life and family takes its toll , our so called resolutions take a back seat till the following year , we lack the zeal and passion to push forward with these resolutions and so we keep repeating this same circle every year with no results.
I personally stopped writing resolutions in 2016 , when it dawned on me that I have been repeating the same goals without actually doing the work needed to make it come through.
TIPS TO HAVE A PRODUCTIVE YEAR
1) START- whatever it is that you want to do or achieve , you just have to start it , stop looking at the circumstances cause they will always be there , don’t wait for the right time , start and grow but most importantly START.
2) CREATE REALISTIC GOALS– more often than not , the reason our resolutions don’t come to life is because we are not realistic with what we have written down which makes it difficult to follow up with the necessary zeal and hard work. Be very true to yourself and what you can do , don’t be pressured by any giuse or form , don’t copy other , set your goals according to your dreams.
3) CREATE DAILY TASK– the easiest way to achieve your goals is to Break it down in a manner that makes it easier for you to focus on each step of the process, that way you work everyday with dedication to achieve a final result . Take steps every day , it’s easier to start small.
4)STAY AWAY FROM NEGATIVITY– This is very important, don’t be around dream killers, what and who you surround yourself with goes a long way when it comes to been productive, so stay far from things that make you look down on yourself or doubt yourself, besides not everyone will understand your dreams and that’s okay.
5) PRAY, PRAY AND WORK– By now you guys know that am a woman of faith and I strongly believe in the power of prayer, so for every thing you want to achieve, out it to God in prayer and be ready to do the work too, pray like you don’t work and work like you don’t pray .
I know that this new decade is loaded with a lot of opportunities and ground breaking success, we just need to do our part.
How are you working towards your goals, please share in the comments section. Xoxo.
