Please don’t call it New Year Resolutions – because that tag seems to have been jinxed with many never being able to achieve their resolutions. Instead, call it your 2018 commitment to self.
How about that?
Commit to making these six changes in 2018 for a better year:
Be more positive
There is so much negativity everywhere, but when you choose to see the positive in every situation, you’ll be shocked how your life seems filled with joy and happiness. Be intentional about your state of mind and what you dwell on in 2018.
Don’t allow yourself to live in a fool’s paradise. Realize that life is filled with good and bad. Choose to dwell on thoughts of the good but be realistic enough to make plans in case the scales tip and a little bit of bad happens.
Save and invest more
When there is a will, there is always a way. You can still earn the same amount and save a little more. It starts with a decision and a commitment to make it happen. A direct debit mandate can help you further stick firmly to that decision so that you don’t have to worry about forgetting to put aside that money. Let the future you envision for yourself and your loved ones be the motivation to save and invest more in 2018.
Have you noticed how emotionally liberating it is when you love more instead of hating? Life becomes more promising, people become more fun to stay around and your heart becomes lighter just by giving a lot more love.
Giving up is the easiest thing in the world to do. How many times have you found yourself giving up on people, dreams, and goals in the past? In 2018, dare to fight more. Don’t let the fear of failing stop you. Let the fear of not trying fuel your fire.
You only live once, and you may as well make your life a masterpiece. Give your children the best education, live in the house of your dreams, invest in the dreams you care about, take vacations to destinations you love and enjoy life the best way possible.
Bottom-line: You can live life on your terms and make sure those you care about have a better lifestyle because of you. But you need a plan to make this possible. Now is the perfect time to draw up your blueprint for 2018.
