There will be multiple people telling you not to set new year goals and that you should rest as we are in the midst of a pandemic. I disagree. The pandemic is not going anywhere for at least another 2 years. If you stop striving for greatness, you will turn around and 4 years will have flown past and you’ll still be in the same place wishing you had learnt a new skill or achieved a goal that would have elevated you in either your personal or professional life.
Progression and growth are a natural human desire and the start of a new year is a great time to start. Many ladies have told me that 2021 was not the great year they hoped for, I concur but it was necessary for the lessons that came with it.
With every tragedy, every lost opportunity or every failure has taught you something. Lessons are hard and they don’t always feel good but if you respect and appreciate them, it lessens the negative emotion attached. On that note, let me throw you some tips on dropping the baggage from 2021.
List every single piece of baggage that has weighed you down this year.
Underneath, write down what you learnt from it.
If this lesson didn’t occur, what would be the impact of not receiving it?
Lastly, taking all that into consideration, what do you want to achieve in the first half of the new year?
I love to analyse my lessons and how far I’ve come but I do hate that these lessons can be challenging and throw me off emotionally. However, at some point these challenges would come up again and again until you acknowledge them and use them to propel you forwards.
Happy New Year Guys!
