2019 was supposed to be your year – the year your financial situation would improve, the year you settled down and found love, the year you started a business or took your business to the next level, they year you traveled more…yet here you are 5 months in and you don’t see any signs of these things happening in the near future. It is difficult to stay motivated when things don’t go as planned, and I want to share some ways to stay motivated and get the most out of 2019.
Write a Gratitude List
I don’t believe that most people are ungrateful…they just lose perspective and forget how much they have to be grateful for. Write out a list of all the things you are grateful, this will help you to acknowledge and appreciate where you are right now.
Write a Success List
What did you accomplish this year? Write it down:
Children successfully potty trained?
Got out of a bad relationship?
Get a new place?
Celebrate all wins no matter how big or how small. There are more than enough stress filled moments to go around so learn to celebrate all of your successes.
Change What You Watch & Listen To
Your thoughts create your words, and your words create your reality. The things that you take in directly influence the way you think -which is the foundation to who you are and what your life is like. If nothing positive goes in, don’t expect anything positive to come out.
Reflect on Your Life a Year Ago
Do some backtracking and you will discover just how far you have come within a year’s time. Even if you are not where you want to be find motivation in knowing that you are growing and advancing.
Exhale & Get to Work
Life is all about continuing to place one foot in front of the other. Take a deep breath and continue to move forward on your journey.
