“IT HAD LONG SINCE COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT PEOPLE OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS RARELY SAT BACK AND LET THINGS HAPPEN TO THEM. THEY WENT OUT AND HAPPENED TO THINGS”

The best time for new beginnings is now
Take the steps and follow through

Set your goals, plan and take the leap
Plant the seeds that you will reap
We are halfway into 2019!!!
I, like most of you established goals at the start of the year but how many of us have reached their goals or made practical/real steps to achieve them? The first half of the year for me was all about slowing it down and getting back to the core. Some goals I have achieved whilst others are well let’s just say a work in progress…
Most of us said that we were going to grind/level up this year but the reality that we may have faced may not be the same. There are many excuses that we tell ourselves and yes, trust me I know life can get in the way but how many times are we going to be too tired from work, need more money, say there is not enough time, are demotivated or can not be bothered etc? I call these excuses – and I am totally guilty for making excuses at times too (truthfully speaking many many times 🙈) but we have to stop and be better.
FOCUS + HARD WORK
Working to achieve your goals may be difficult but keep going and remember not to compare your journey to others. Remember that you set those goals 👀 so take ownership, focus and put forth the hard work needed. Do not be afraid to analyse and readjust your goals if you need to – your goals should scare you but also be realistic.
Having a plan is great and makes you more focused – it has also helped me to be more productive and more in control. Make a plan and ensure it is a detailed one – break down the plan into smaller actionable steps that will all build up/help to reach your goals. With every goal or idea there is a journey and the reality is that we have to understand and accept what needs to be done in order to achieve them. Sometimes that may mean sacrificing sleep, being more consistent, cutting down on expenditures or spending less time on social media. Whatever it may be decide and implement it.
Ask yourself what is it you want to achieve for the future? And how bad do you want it?
In order to achieve different results in 2019 things have to be done differently. Take time to reflect over the first half of 2019 and realign/readjust yourself accordingly! There is still six months of the year and there is still time to rise and obtain those goals, it’s never too late to start. No more excuses, wasted ideas, missed opportunities – instead more focus, more action and more passion for everything you do.
This is YOUR life, remember you have the power to make it what you want to be. One thing you have to ask yourself is if not now then when?
Keep dreaming, keep pushing, keep going!!!
What you are to be, you are becoming
