It's a new year. A new beginning. A clean slate. A year filled with goals, aspirations and lots of opportunities. This time of the year is when we reflect on what was, and hope for what is to come. We make resolutions, set goals, draw up plans. But what changes do we make to ourselves?
Its a new year, but is it the same you? How do you plan to be better this year? What changes are necessary for you to be successful this year? What missteps did you take last year that cannot be repeated this year? How do you plan to be a better you? What habits do you need to unlearn? Who do you need to let go of? What new adventures do you hope to go on?
It's not enough to only set external goals. You need to take steps to becoming a better you. A you who is 1% better each day in at least one area of your life. What would it take for you to become that person that you've always wanted to be? You can't keep doing the same things and hope for a different outcome. Try new things. Explore other options. Open up your mind to new experiences. Be open to constructive feedback. Change is necessary for growth. Get out of your comfort zone and see where that takes you. You have to be willing to be uncomfortable to become a better you. Live through the growing pains and learn from the experiences along the way.
Make this year count. Be intentional about every step you take, every decision you make and every relationship you have. Let this be the year you become a better version of you.
