Decisions, decisions

nature-sky-sunset-man

We are an accumulation of the decisions we make. Our choices and actions reflect who we are, what we value, and what we believe are possible and not. This may be a scary thought to some, to hold one’s self accountable in such a manner, but it is one that we need, in order to recognize and acknowledge why we keep getting in our own way.

Start The Year Of Right

A new year typically means new resolutions. So whether you’re planning to eat healthier, learn to better manage your finances, or you’re like me, striving to grow your business, we all know that New Years resolutions are hard to keep. In our fast-paced and demanding lifestyles, it is a lot easier to not do what we said and watch Netflix all day. Anything from cheating with a burrito bowl from Chipotle (it’s fresh and fresh = healthy right?), splurge on the newest designer bag (but it’s SO PRETTY AND IT WILL GO WITH EVERYTHING I OWN!!), or put things off until tomorrow… (or the day after that or the day after that…), we tend to make excuses on why it’s okay to skip out “just this one time” and wonder why we’re not healthier, happier, and more successful yet.

Without a goal, you can’t score

Yesterday was the first of November. The first day of a new month. For many of us, the first of November means the first day of holiday preparations as we look forward to relaxing with a cup of apple cider (or pumpkin space latte, whatever tickles your fancy) and spending time with our loved ones. With the ideas of feasting on large birds, delicious side dishes (my favorite!) and beautiful holiday trimmings dancing in our heads, it’s so easy to become distracted by the holiday festivities. Because of that, we need to set goals for ourselves, for this month and every month, in order to keep ourselves on track, focused, and to make sure that we finish the year off as strong as we started it.

You may be thinking to yourself, “but… the holidays are a time for giving back, spending time with our families and friends, relaxing and not working so much!” As much as I agree with you that we absolutely need to make time for our loved ones and ourselves, it is extremely important and essential to our personal and professional development that we budget our time wisely. By scheduling our obligations accordingly, we make sure that we do remain on track while still making time to do what we want to do!

Letting Go of Unhealthy Friendships

A couple of months ago, I wrote about how important it was for us to spend our time wisely. Time is a highly valuable resource that should only be given and shared diligently. With that being said, we should be hyperconscious and extremely selective on who and what we spend our time on in order to make the most out of our “investments” (in this case, we are investing our time and efforts). It is important to recognize that in order to be successful, we must make a lot of hard decisions and sacrifices in order to do what we love and become the person we’ve always wanted to be. With that, we must be cognizant on who we surround ourselves with, for they are a reflection of who we are and who we strive to be.

The Person You’ve Become

On the journey towards greatness, it’s a given that we focus on the end goal. We think about what it would be like on top and how euphoria and victorious it would be. We fantasize about how things would be different for us once we make it big. Our minds filled with glorious visions of us running our company, having the luxury of taking care of the people we love, and living the life we’ve always said we would. As important as it is to say focused on how great it would be like to finally reach the end of the finish line, it is equally, if not, more important that we also focus on who we’ve become once we’ve reached our destination.

What kind of person will you be once you’re on top? Are you a kind person? Will you stay true to your beliefs, values and keep your promises? Are you happy, not just in life but with who you are as a person? Are you someone who you would want to be around? Have you truly become the best person you can possibly be?
