In case you haven’t noticed we are already on the second month of the year. The reality is it’s never too late to start planning your perfect, bright tomorrow. With all that said I’ll be sharing some important areas in your life that need your undivided attention in 2019.
Let’s start with your health
This is the most crucial of all the areas, your body is going to carry you this year. It is the engine to your dreams, you will need it to get the rewards for all your effort. Take care of it, exercise 20 minutes three times a week, give yourself time to recover with rest days and aim to eat healthier. Starting today decide on a routine that works for you. It will be the deciding factor of how far you’ll go this year.
Constant growth only happens when you plan for it, there’s nothing as priceless as being financially liberated. The beginning of the year is a perfect time to re-evaluate where you are in your quest to build generational wealth.
It’s time to get serious about your savings, plotting how to increase your retirement fund, drastically lowering your debts, bumping up your investments and be more financially savvy this year. There is no time like the present to get your finances in order.
Last year was a curtain raiser for the realities of mental health, we lost many beloved young and old. Your peace of mind and happiness matters; take it seriously this year.
If you have issues you’ve never dealt with, book a session with a therapist.
If you long for more connection with your source, make it a priority.
Don’t be afraid to admit you have a problem. Remember every success in your life will depend on a healthy mind, getting to work in that regard will shift the needle.
How will you be the light in every room this year? The supportive and encouraging force in all your treasured relationships.
Start by listing relationships that matter to you, those that need to be paused and those that need to be repaired. Every day make time for those that matter to you, a text a phone call, sharing a coffee, goes a long way. Remember to be to others what you want them to be for you, you will need all the support you get this year.
Getting better at what you do
What skill do you wish you had to make your life easier? What seminars do you need to book today? What do you need to do be an even better version of yourself this year?
Getting better will make you feel better. Maybe you need to go back to school this year, or you need a mentor or you need an advanced course in what you do to take you to the next level. Only you know what you really need to do. Make this year a year of being closer to being regarded as one of the best in your industry.
Make time for this that you love doing. There is a beauty in just being happy with the simplest things. Surround yourself with things and people that make you happy. Be deliberate in how you approach every situation and watch how you will begin to enjoy every day of your life.
