If you thought 2018 was the best year of your life well you have a lot of work to do in 19’. It’s time to raise the stakes and step it up. You will be stepping into your greatness in 2019. By becoming the best version of yourself you will always be competing against yourself to be better than who you were in the past.
Constantly be learning and improving yourself each day. The more you are able to work on yourself the better you will become. As Warrant Buffet wisely said, “The best investment you can make is in yourself.” Are you investing in every area of your life? Do you take the time to put yourself first and do what is best for you? If no, then you have the power to change.
Take these tips into your life for 2019 and watch your life explode:
- Develop A Morning Routine
Majority of people have no direction for where they are going in life. Worst of all the average person watches six hours of television a day and repeats their mistakes. Set yourself up for success every single day by waking up each morning with a routine in place to crush the day. What you do when you first wake up will determine what type of day you are going to have. If you want to WIN the day then you must wake up with a champion mindset.
- Quit trying to please other people
Do you feel like you are prisoner to other people? Or you find yourself constantly trying so hard to fit in and gain recognition from others? Most people will do whatever it takes to join the crowd and fear sticking out. You are robbed of any happiness when you are constantly trying to please other people.
You will constantly find yourself out of place and not knowing who you are. Let me tell you it is much easier to lose yourself when you join the crowd. Remember, you’re the sum of the people you associate yourself with. If you hang in the barber shop long enough eventually you are going to get a haircut. Avoid the negativity for 2019!
- Keep Up with Forward Momentum
It’s easy to get yourself in a rut when you are constantly living in the past or fearing the future. In order to keep the ball rolling and striving forward you must be able to adapt to circumstances that come your way. Lace up the boot straps and ready for whatever obstacles get thrown at you. Focus in on what you do have control over and let go of the rest. When you lose your emotions trying to control the external you lose your power. Focus in on yourself and keep the ship moving ahead.
- Have an attitude of gratitude
Gratitude is the antidote to all problems. Without being grateful for the things that you do have you will find yourself constantly complaining about the things that you do not. No one wants to hang around a complainer so be grateful this year for the abundance you have in your life. Get a gratitude journal and begin your day by listing out everything you are grateful for. Gratitude will help you change your perspective and get you out of any stinking thinking. Choose to be an optimist versus a pessimist for 2019.
- Celebrate each success
A lot of people will try to bring you down or criticize you for what you are trying to achieve. Do not let the opinions of others stop you from getting ahead. You must become your own cheerleader because the reality is majority of people enjoy drama, gossip, and misery. Rise above the noise and stand out by remaining focused on yourself and goals at hand. Forget what others say or think about you. The only opinion that matters is the one that you have of yourself. Every time you are able to lift yourself up by marking off your goals you will gain a rush of adrenaline and a big confidence boost with it. Remember no one has the power to break you unless you give them the power to.
Be a winner this year by checking off everything that you have completed in a given day. It does not need to be the big wins either as the small wins are ultimately the ones that carry the biggest weight. WIN THE YEAR.
