The goal of every Creative, Businessperson, Student, Employee, Husband, Child, Wife, Parents, and so on is to start off the New Year with the right mindset. No student desires to fail neither does a husband want to neglect his duties. And, fueling your mental being with the right mindset requires a lot of intentional efforts.
Do not be afraid. Sincerely, don’t be!
2020 gave us more than enough reasons to worry about how 2021 would go, but 2021 was a great year for many. Regardless, many people didn’t get to achieve all their goals in 2021 and that’s okay. If you find yourself in that position, don’t panic, 2021 was a handful.
Seeing 2022 as a New Year in the last few hours of 2021 was extremely difficult. I was less enthusiastic and saw the New Year as just another day. And, the excitement that comes with the New Year and wanting to plan was all gone. At that point, I knew I was in a dangerous place mentally. I should be expectant, excited, and ready for new beginnings, but I wasn’t. And if you are still in that mental state, keep reading.
Allow me to remind you that we are in another decade, another year, another month, and day and my question to you is this, WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THIS NEW SEASON? One way to realign your thinking is by reminding yourself repeatedly that you are in a New Year, a New Season. The power of repetition. While you are doing that, also remind yourself of all the expectations you had in the previous year that didn’t see the light of day, but you want to see a change in this coming year.
As you do those, your thought pattern should begin to change, and that change should stir you in the direction of proper planning and high expectation(s). Once you get your drive back, prayerfully remain in that mental position, and begin to pen down your plans, expectations, desires, and many more for the New Year.
My next questions are, DO YOU HAVE A VISION BOARD THAT CAN KEEP YOU ACCOUNTABLE? Or YOU ARE THE TYPE THAT WILL WING IT, whatever will be will be?
I hope you are not in the second category. But if you are, I hope that changes after reading this.
And with all the distractions in our world today, it’s easy to wonder how to achieve the right mindset for the New Year. The truth is, it’s not easy at all, but you can do it! Remember what I told you in paragraph 4?
THE RIGHT MINDSET FOR SUCCESS
Starting the New Year with the right mindset means different things for all of us. It means putting my goals on paper so that I do not miss out on anything. Whereas for you, it might mean studying harder to get those good grades or more dedication to your loved ones. No matter what it is, the crucial thing is not to let the days go by without having something/someone to keep you in check as you crush each goal and fulfill each desire!
The next big step is to have written goals for the sake of accountability. If you have written goals that must be met before a timeframe, you are already on your way to BETTER LAND because you will be more inclined to work toward that goal. Trust me, this method has its way of pushing us to do better, to take the next step.
Once your goals are in writing, the next thing is to get a reliable and HARDWORKING person that can hold you accountable. Emphasis is on “hardworking” because being reliable isn’t just enough! A lazy dependent is as good as no dependent, so to get the best of your set goals, entrust those goals with a hardworking dependent. You will be amazed at how much you will achieve over a short period.
A friend once told me that he needed a good woman in his life, not for a relationship but to share ideas and purpose with her. I pondered on those words, and I realized the wisdom in them. A GOOD WOMAN has the inbuilt ability to make something big out of a little thing. This means that when you trust her with your ideas, even if she is your wife or not, she has a way of bringing those ideas into massive reality.
I am not saying that you should start searching for a GOOD WOMAN in this New Year, haha! They are hard to find anyway but if you already have one in your life and she cares about your success, GROW WITH HER!
Eventually, the goal is to be with a hardworking dependent that can help make your written goals a reality, be it man or woman.
Now that you know how to start well, begin to put all these words into action, beloved. Let go of all the fears, discard the worries, and stay pumped up! You can’t afford to not start well this year! It must not be like the other years; it MUST be better!
Finally, as undesirable as 2021 was for many, a lot had plenty of reasons to give thanks. My prayer for you is that you recover every lost expectation, joy, plans, etc., in this New Year, Amen. And, as much as you can, live a life of gratitude this year because a grateful person never lacks.
I will leave you with this,
“The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized during the lifetime of the opportunity.” ~Alaanuloluwa
FIX YOUR MINDSET SO YOU CAN END WELL!!!
A Happy New Year to you from all of us at SARMLife. Thank you for your support all through the past year.
