As we come to the end of another year, all kinds of thoughts are probably running through your mind. For some, this year was amazing and filled with cool wins. For others, this year was terrible and one you can’t wait to get past. Over the last two years, I’ve experienced both of these kinds of years.
2016 was absolutely terrible. What made it worse was realizing that everything happened because of self-imposed poor choices. I came to the end of 2016 broke, broken, and hopeless. 2017 has been one of the best years of my life so far. It’s not just because business has been fabulous. It’s because I finally understood and implemented self-love while working on becoming the best version of myself. I’m coming to the end of this year extremely grateful for the amazing opportunities and growth I experienced.
I can’t see the future but I can tell you that 2018 is going to be even better. I’m manifesting greatness. I have one major goal: wake up each day and challenged myself. I’m taking my personal development to my next growth level.
I’m putting my health at the forefront and continuing to eat clean and get in peak shape. I’m challenging my mind with content that breaks old negative thinking. I’m consuming books, videos, podcasts, classes, teachers and more that feeds into my goals. I’m learning Arabic. I’m setting a goal to help 1,000,000 people stop existing and start living the life they truly want and deserve. As far as business, that will fall into place as my personal development goals manifest. I will be charging more and travel less.
If you can’t feel it, let me tell you that I’m excited. I can sense and feel something so strong and amazing that it’s bringing me to tears as I write this. I feel like I’m more awake than I’ve ever been. My path is clear. It won’t be easy and I’m sure things won’t go as planned at times, but I’m fully prepared to enjoy every part of the journey. The good and not so good.
It’s Your Time
What I hope you take away from this post and everything that I do is what’s possible for you. This coming year can be freaking amazing if you decide it will be. You have to see it and believe it before you can do anything about it. Too often, we think in terms of business and all the nitty-gritty stuff that has to happen. Your business goals will fall into place as your life goals do.
Set a goal to become the best version of yourself. Love yourself strongly. Fully understand what that means. Stop seeking outside validation. Stop chasing shiny objects. Stop living your life with certain expectations. Stop comparing your life and journey to others. Stop letting self-limiting beliefs dictate what you do. Establish a strong foundation that allows you to receive.
You are closer than you think. You can set and plan and learn the tactics. But, that comes after you’ve built a solid foundation within yourself. My goal is to help and make an impact—so I will be on this journey with you. But, I need you to get determined and start building that personal foundation. This starts with you.
Will you join me in making 2018 an amazing year?
