New Year, New You Right?
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Yeah, we are a month in but *shrugs* lol. Who said YOUR New Year HAS to start on January 1st? Not everyone is on the same schedule or chapter in their lives that we all have start on the first of the year together. I never fully understood why you would want to wait until the new year, to start something you can do today. I guess since it’s a new year, it’s a new beginning mindset. Technically, my New Year is tomorrow (February 11th), since that is when I made my appearance in this world. Here's to another year of life, health, strength and goal crushing!
When people think of the new year, they think of making a New Year Resolution. Typically, we will set something unrealistic like going to the gym 3 times a week and eating healthy, when in reality, we will go to the gym and eat "right" for a week or two in January, then fall back into our regular routine.
I normally don’t participate in New Year Resolutions, but this year I think I will. My New Year Resolution for 2019 is….*DRUM ROLL*
*SURROUND MYSELF WITH LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE*
It’s hard to move forward in life if you are around people that seem unmotivated to complete any task at hand. Or they say that they want this or that, but they never take any steps to achieve that goal. What about the famous, "I'll do it later", "Next year I'm going to...", but does "later" or "next year" ever come? As NIKE says, "JUST DO IT". Being around like-minded people will motivate you to push harder to get the things that you want. When you see other people making things happen, it's only right that you will do the same. It’s also good to have people around you that would hold you accountable on something that you said you would do, motivate you and to help you grow as a person.
I recently moved to a new city and I don't know many people here, but I plan to surround myself with individuals that have goals and aspirations to do more. Not just business related, but people that like to travel and explore new things.
So I challenge you today to surround yourself with like-minded people. You were put on this earth to be GREAT, not mediocre.
