We are officially into 2019. It’s a brand new year. It’s a new start and everyone begins at the same level.
This is a good time to start writing out your goals if you have not done so already. Your ultimate goal should be to become a success in every area of your life.
It’s time to break out a sheet of paper and pen and start writing out the categories. It should go something like this.
GOALS for 2019
The list can go on and on, but I feel these are all important areas to write down some very specific goals on what you would like to accomplish in 2019. Some people will be especially successful in the business world but the rest of the areas they lack in. Proper balance is essential.
As you go through each one of these categories, it is vital that you are very specific. For example, let’s take the financial part — just to simply say, “I want to make a lot of money” is not specific, nor will it work. There always has to be a reason why. For example, what do you want your earnings to be? How much money do you want to save? Perhaps your plan is to get out of debt. Now your goals are much more specific, and you can start making a plan on what it’s going to take to achieve those goals.
Go through every one of these categories and even add more. Now you have something to get excited about and something to shoot for. You have a reason why. Get excited about your goals and make an excellent plan of action so you can achieve them this year.
Now, here comes the most important part which unfortunately too many people do not do. They have their goals, they know what it takes to achieve the goals but unfortunately, they have the killer disease of all success and it is simply called PROCRASTINATION.
How does someone know if they are afflicted with this disease? They use words and phrases like tomorrow, next week, next month, in the near future, I will get around to it, i’m not ready yet, I just need a little more time, I need more training, etc.
The good news is that there is a cure for this. It is called T N T (Today Not Tomorrow). It all boils down to you making that decision. You have to decide that you are better than where you currently are, and you are going to commit to having a successful life in all areas.
Life is short, make the best of it. Do not procrastinate, it’s going to take effort. That’s the most important part that I am talking about. A positive attitude plus a good work ethic spells success. It’s not going to be easy but I promise you this, it’s going to be worth it.
Let’s make the decision to make 2019 your best year ever and let’s start today! T N T
