Go bold this year. A year is a year is a year, but this one will be no different from the last unless you raise the standards, build an outline, invest during a recessionary period, and look for the right mentor.
Successful people are made from small accomplishments. You’re already successful whether you want to acknowledge it or not. Whether you remain known or unknown is up to you. By the time you are done reading 2017’s blog posts, you will have accomplished four tasks that will elevate your dreams, strategies, lifestyle, attitudes, and characteristics.
Raise the Standard This Year
If you do not attempt to raise the standard each year, you will never know your limits. This goes for anything you’ve been doing in your life. You can apply it to yourself, your relationships, your work, your goals, and so on. Sometimes, you may not have a limit, especially when you keep pushing yourself without stopping. Whatever you’ve been doing wrong last year must stop. If you were doing everything right, that’s great. However, do it better than last year. Your improvement should be continuous.
Build an Outline This Year
Do not attempt to accomplish anything in your life without an outline. If you do, you will waste your talent and skill. You need an outline to figure out which road you are taking, which mistakes you keep repeating, what is wrong about your life, how you are going to elevate yourself, whether you should make a move and when, and why you are pursuing your dreams.
Think of a plan as a personal belief. When you have a belief, people challenge it, and when you have messed up a plan, you are challenged. It can easily take away everything you have. You don’t want to be miserable and continue living without a plan. Just like a great piece of writing, you must have an outline. Great business ideas must have a plan to be accomplished. You want to get a better car? Have a plan. You want to have the best woman or man in your life? Have a plan. You want to drink a gallon of water daily? Have a plan. Have a plan for just about everything in your life until it becomes second nature. Right now, you are being mentally bullied because you have decided not to have a plan.
Invest During the Recession This Year
Success is never handed on a platter, and it is meant to last. If you do not have the money or resources you need, forget about it. Just make it a goal to invest in yourself during the recession period this year. Why do I call this the recession period? It’s simple: the quickest road to success is usually closed or not yet open. There’s a scarcity, which can be within you or in your physical environment.
One thing about life you should enjoy is obstacles. You should love them, because they don’t hate you. If you find yourself down, the reason is not that you hate the obstacles that got you here, but yourself. You need to invest in yourself and get ready to hit the floor when the recession period is over.
Find a Mentor This Year
Find a mentor. Go online, to a seminar, or wherever you might find a mentor to help you with your goals. Keep that person close. Go looking for one. Mentorship is as crucial as water. If you don’t drink water for a week, you become thirsty; if you don’t drink water for several weeks in a row, you become depleted from the inside out. This proves two points, ladies and gentlemen: One, you can’t master your field until you learn from others. Two, mentorship is required to clear the path toward your success, away from all the setbacks and obstacles that impede your journey in this wonderful life.
