14 Jan Happy New Year — Welcome To 2020
Can you believe it is 2020? It is a whole new decade!
Indeed time flies. We can agree that 2019 literally went by the twinkle of an eye.
As expected, 2020 is everyone’s best year yet! Some of us have, while some are still trying to come up with a master plan that will change their lives for better in 2020. Some of us are still wondering how 2019 went by without achieving any of our set goals.
What category do you fall under?
Were you able to accomplish most of your goals for last year, or you didn’t even get close to achieving any of your goals for the year? Your answer to the questions doesn’t matter anymore because there’s nothing you can do about the past.
It’s the 7th of January 2020 already! And I bet this year will go by faster than previous years. So, don’t feel too bad if you failed to accomplish your goals in 2019 because this year is offering you another opportunity to become the person of your dream.
Kudos if all your goals in 2019 were achieved. However, we can’t say what 2020 has in store for you and I. We are only certain that it will take more than just writing your goals on a piece of paper or designing a vision board. You need commitment, consistency, hard work, patience, and determination.
“It takes determination to achieve a new and greater height, it takes much more determination to remain at your newfound height”
Hence, if you worked for four hours to be successful in 2019, you need eight hours in 2020 to maintain or increase your wealthy status.
What Are Your Visions For 2020?
What are your goals for the New Year? Have you mapped out a strategy that will enhance your chances of achieving your goals for the year? Start by setting SMART goals for this year while you apply a better strategy to achieve them. Detect the roadblocks that prevented you from reaching your full potentials in 2019 and learn from the mistakes.
“Failure shouldn’t discourage you from trying again because every successful human had tasted failure before becoming a well-known individual in the world”
If James Dyson could finally succeed after 15 years of trials, who said you can’t invent that tire-less bike. If Wole Soyinka could become the first African to win a Nobel Prize in Literature award after failing the English language in nine SSCE exams, who said you can’t get admission into the university of your choice in 2020?
Thomas Edison failed 999 times before inventing his electric light bulb. Walt Disney of the Disney cartoon network is another man whose story should inspire you. All you need to do is staying true to yourself and find a way (action) to achieve your goals for the year. Achieving your goals and visions for this year requires a few things from you. They are:
1. New Year Resolutions That Are backed Up By Swift Action
New year resolutions are believed to be one of the greatest strategies deployed by everyone who wants to have a successful year, as it will bring the best out of them.
Unfortunately, 80% of people who made New Year’s resolutions failed to keep them because they lack the willpower to change for the better. They also fail to keep their resolutions because they didn’t take swift action towards becoming better.
“A failure to take precise and deliberate action is the reason why so many New Year’s resolutions and other goals fail.”
What are your resolutions for 2020? Are you willing to right all your wrong actions that made 2019 a forgettable year? If yes, take a step today and stop thinking about the unchangeable past!
Quick Advice: Your New Year resolutions must propel you towards achieving your targets for the year. Your resolutions must be vision-bound, as that will make 2020 a fruitful year for you.
For instance, if your goal is to have £20m in your account by December, your resolution for the year must include spending less and working hard(er) because they will improve your possibility of reaching your goal.
Do you want to gain admission? You must study more than ever. Yours is to become a well-known online affiliate marketer? Then, you have to spend more on the internet and learn from experts.
2. Spiritual and Mental Alertness
The year 2020 will be an ordinary year for you if you fail to acknowledge the fact that there’s a need to be spiritually and mentally strong.
I have come to realise that the spiritual controls the physical. Until you’re spiritually strong, you can’t have a successful 2020 — there’s no magic to that.
Stay glued to whatever you believe is working for you in the spiritual world as that will help build your mental strength to overcome many challenges and unavoidable setbacks.
3. Determination and Discipline
You need to be determined to achieve your goals for the year. Determination is the strong willpower that keeps you going when everything is saying otherwise. You need it to enhance your chances of breaking your limit this year.
However, mere willpower won’t be enough to see you through the year’s challenges if it’s not backed up by discipline.
Discipline simply means having a high regard for your reputation. Whatever you don’t want, don’t do it to others. Don’t strive to get what you don’t need. Discipline helps you to contend with what you have.
4. Commitment and Consistency
Until you commit yourself towards achieving your goals, you can’t become a better person in life. You must give all your power to realise the 2020 goals.
Just like commitment, consistency is also important because the more you continue to engage in one activity, the higher your chances of breaking new ground.
What are you planning to start in 2020? I must let you know that it’s better not to begin a project than ending it halfway. Consistency is a trademark of a successful individual, learn to develop it as part of your all-time attributes.
As you already know, your destiny is in your hand, and 2020 is what you make of it. Whatever you sow into the year, is what you will reap at the end of it… Be good to everyone, stay focused and have a fruitful year ahead.
